NEEDS: Wayne Sim­monds has been men­tioned and he’d be a good fit in Bos­ton, but the Bru­ins also need depth on de­fense.

AVAIL­ABIL­ITY: The Bru­ins have an in­trigu­ing group of prospects and can also of­fer up their own pick in the first four rounds of the 2018 draft.

UFAs: Z. Chara (D), R. Nash (C), A. Khudobin (G), T. Schaller (LW), P. Postma (D)

TRADE BAIT: For the first time in a while, the Bru­ins have a very solid prospect list with depth of tal­ent at ev­ery po­si­tion. They’re par­tic­u­larly deep down the mid­dle with Jakob Fors­backa-Karlsson, Trent Fred­eric, Ryan Donato and Jack Studnicka. Their af­fil­i­ate is one of the top teams in the AHL, thanks to their young play­ers.
