BREAKING: 2 potential trades the Bruins Could Make Before The Start Of the Season

As we gear up for the 2023-24 NHL season, it's time to dive into the trade buzz surrounding all 32 teams.

This summer has been a whirlwind, and there's still plenty of business to address before the puck drops. Keep an eye out for trades as teams assess their talent during training camp.

The Boston Bruins are undergoing significant changes this season due to a couple of retirements, leaving noticeable gaps in their lineup. Let's take a closer look at the trade rumors swirling around the Bruins:

1. Mark Scheifele on the Radar


The Bruins are in dire need of help at the center position. Keep a close watch on how Charlie Coyle and Pavel Zacha perform early in the 2023-24 season.

Mark Scheifele of the Winnipeg Jets could be the answer. Contract extension talks between Scheifele and the Jets have stalled as he enters the final year of his contract.

Scheifeles impressive stats from last season (42 goals and 68 points in 81 games) make him a tempting prospect for the Bruins.

2. Logan Couture: A Trade Possibility

Another player to keep an eye on is Logan Couture from the San Jose Sharks. The Sharks are in full rebuilding mode and have been actively discussing trades this offseason.

Couture has four seasons remaining on his $8 million per season contract, making him a challenging but intriguing trade target.

With 67 points in 82 games last season, he could be a valuable addition to the evolving Bruins roster.

General manager Don Sweeney is expected to explore options for moving a goaltender during the season.

The Bruins' asset pool is limited, and either Linus Ullmark or Jeremy Swayman might be on the move to bolster the forward lines. Ullmark, coming off a record-breaking 2022-23 season and a Vezina win, is a strong contender.

On the other hand, Swayman, six years younger, is emerging as one of the league's top backup goalies and a restricted free agent at season's end.

The Bruins are poised to be active in the trade market, and the goalie situation could be a key factor in their moves this season.
