The Boston Bruins have been heavily linked to one of this offseasons biggest trade block names and we have a better idea of the acquiring cost.
St. Louis Blues' forward Vladimir Tarasenko is on his way out of St. Louis after demanding a trade and he's been linked to the B's.
Many believe a second line of Taylor Hall, David Krejci and Tarasenko would really put them team over the top up front.
So what exactly would it cost to bring the forward over?
According to Blues' insider Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic, the B's would have to send over their 2021 first round pick along with forward Trent Frederic.
"The Bruins’ first-round pick is No. 20, and with the Blues already possessing the No. 16 pick, Armstrong would have two of the top 20 selections in the draft. I’m assuming the Blues would be retaining salary in this proposal, but even if they’re off the hook for some of the $7.5 million, it would allow them to spend that money on another position. Meanwhile, they’d be adding some sandpaper in the St. Louisan, Frederic, and it worked out pretty well the last time a player put on the hometown uniform (Pat Maroon)."
Would you give this up to bring the former 40 goal scorer to Boston?
