Boston Bruins seek for second-line heart hits a snag
Jimmy Murphy of Boston Hockey NOW: The commerce market typically goes stale this far into the free company interval. With the second week of August upon us, issues typically go quiet.
“I believe the apparent alternative is Charlie Coyle,” Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy informed the media on Thursday. “He’s accustomed to our guys and I’m accustomed to him. That’s the way in which we’re leaning and we’ll see how the opposite items shake out.”
Coyle made sense from the start of all of this. Arizona parted with sufficient already and was not going to simply give Christian Dvorak away. Even with Jake DeBrusk and Jakub Zboril being dangled, that was not sufficient. Stalemate is being sort. This proposed thought feels nearly lifeless.
Phil Kessel desires out however the place may he go?
Craig Morgan: Many times, the Arizona Coyotes appear to simply need to dump veteran gamers in all places however one drawback could also be Phil Kessel. Kessel desires out and it’s not a secret. His brokers requested as such.
There’s one huge drawback. Little curiosity appears expressed for the 33-year outdated winger.
With a brand new coach and the exodus, it is smart for Kessel and his brokers to make such a request. Once more, this may increasingly have to attend an excellent whereas. It may not even be till the commerce deadline.
Can Kessel wait that lengthy as his abilities proceed to erode? Which may be much more of a burning query. Vegas has been lengthy declared lifeless as an possibility however would Kessel take into account possibly one other contender? That is still doable however once more who? Once more, curiosity in August just isn’t there.
