NBC Boston says Bruins GM targeting major pending UFA

Tim Tucker   ·   21 janvier 2020
With the NHL trade deadline inching ever closer, trade rumours around the league are starting to heat up. One of the major rumours right now comes from NBC Boston. The outlet states the Bruins are attempting to land perhaps the biggest piece of trade bait on the market this season in Chris Kreider of the New York Rangers.



Boston is currently at the top of the Atlantic Division with 68 points after 50 game. However, like most teams, the Bruins would like to bring in some extra help by the deal deadline in order to go as far as possible in the playoffs. Kreider, who will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, has 16 goals and 15 assists in 47 games. He is currently in the final year of a four-year agreement worth $4.625 million annually. With less than a million dollars in cap room at the moment, Boston would need to shed some salary in order to bring Kreider into the fold but, of course, that can be done with the right deal.



Kreider will be a highly coveted player at the trade deadline by several teams and NBC Boston anticipates that he will bring the Rangers at least a first-round pick, as well as other potential assets. That said, Kreider can easily provide extra offense and grit to a team looking to contend for a cup. Long story short, there will be teams out there willing to pay the Rangers' asking price.
