The Boston Bruins haven't made any mind blowing moves during free agency so far.
General manager Don Sweeney's big move so far has been signing forward Craig Smith who while not being a big name, will bring some help by bringing some grit and can score 20 goals.
However the Bruins need more and that's why they've been talking to free agent forward Mike Hoffman.
According to NHL insider Elliotte Friedman, Hoffman's contract demands might be something feasible the Bruins can handle.
Friedman reports that Hoffman is willing to sign a one year deal like Taylor Hall and look for a better pay day next year.
Hoffman's contract is expected to be between $5.5-6.5million for the season.
Not too bad for a guy who can easily score 30 goals.
Would you be willing to give Hoffman this kind of deal?
Hearing Mike Hoffman is considering a one-year deal for his next NHL home. If he does that, there’s a good chance that he and Taylor Hall head to market next summer as the leaders in goals per game for all free agents 31 and under. Déjà vu all over again.
