The Boston Bruins plan to address some holes this offseason as they gear up for another Stanley Cup run.
One of the solutions seems to be clearly identified.
We've already heard lots of speculation that the B's are interested in free agent veteran defenseman Ryan Suter, now it seems he's their clear #1 target.
According to NHL insider Elliotte Friedman, the Bruins are all in on Suter.
"Lots of expectation Boston going hard for Ryan Suter. One source called him “the Corey Perry of 2021-22.”"
The veteran could be looked at as the perfect partner for Brandon Carlo on the second pairing and would easily contribute on either power play units as well.
Despite his age, Suter isn't an injury risk either having missed five games or fewer in each of the last eight seasons.
This continues to be a very interesting storyline to follow.
