Boston Bruins seek for second-line heart hits a snag
Jimmy Murphy of Boston Hockey NOW: The commerce market usually goes stale this far into the free company interval. With the second week of August upon us, issues usually go quiet.
“I believe the apparent alternative is Charlie Coyle,” Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy instructed the media on Thursday. “He’s aware of our guys and I’m aware of him. That’s the best way 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 variety. This proposed thought feels virtually useless.
Phil Kessel desires out however the place might he go?
Craig Morgan: Many times, the Arizona Coyotes appear to simply wish to dump veteran gamers in every single place however one downside could also be Phil Kessel. Kessel desires out and it isn’t a secret. His brokers requested as such.
There’s one large downside. Little curiosity appears expressed for the 33-year previous 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 occasionally have to attend a superb whereas. It won’t 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 useless as an choice however would Kessel think about perhaps one other contender? That is still potential however once more who? Once more, curiosity in August just isn’t there.
