The Boston Bruins need to add some help when it comes to the upcoming NHL trade deadline if they want to be successful in the playoffs. 

Some want the Bruins to add a sniper, while others want to see some grit and toughness added. 

What if you could add a little bit of both?

Many have labelled Philadelphia Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds as a perfect fit for the Bruins style of play and their playoff push. 

According to Sam Carchidi of the Philly Inquirer, the Bruins have spoken and are showing interest in landing Simmonds. 

Trading for Simmonds would be way cheaper than trying to land Artemi Panarin and the Bruins could probably do it without giving up Jake DeBrusk. 

A perfect fit?
