No speak of canceling the All-Star Weekend simply but
Greg Wyshynski: Have been listening to that there was no discuss canceling the Vegas NHL All-Star weekend right now. Clearly, there have been different priorities that the NHL has been coping with.
Rutherford to name the photographs?
Rick Dhaliwal: Elliotte Friedman on the Vancouver Canucks vacant GM place: “I nonetheless suppose Rutherford will name numerous the photographs in VAN, some GM candidates perhaps would need extra of a say, need the job however say a bit extra energy in VAN.”
A really perfect goal for the Bruins is….
Joe Haggerty of Boston Hockey Now: The Bruins may nonetheless use a No. 2 middle however it is probably not their high want now. In the event that they had been to convey David Krejci again now, he’d require waivers.
The Bruins largest want could also be a top-four left-handed defenseman that may play large minutes. Somebody with dimension, has some expertise, and is ideally younger. Mike Reilly and Matt Grzelcyk haven’t been ultimate, and Derek Forbort isn’t a top-four.
“I imply, we’re nonetheless persevering with to speak however you’ll be able to think about your entire league is a little bit bit handcuffed and we have now the roster freeze arising,” mentioned Boston Bruins GM Don Sweeney through Zoom on the finish of final week. “In order that’s in all probability going to place us in a scenario the place issues aren’t — communication can proceed however you’ll be able to’t actually do something till you come out of it. And clearly we’re reacting to the place our staff goes to be popping out of the break and making an attempt to organize for that after which seeing who’s going to be wholesome and recovered.”
Arizona Coyotes Jakob Chychrun may very well be the best left-handed defenseman that the Bruins are in search of. He’s 6′ 2″, 211 kilos, can rating, and eat up minutes.
Do the Bruins have the belongings to land somebody like Chychrun? The Bruins have the draft picks however perhaps not the younger expertise the Coyotes need.
Would Matt Grzelcyk, Jack Studnicka, a first- and second-round choose be sufficient to get conversations going? Would they should exchange Grzelcyk with Brandon Carlo? What about Jake DeBrusk, Urho Vaakanainen and draft picks?
