The Boston Bruins Miss Out On Another Top Center

Despite being a Stanley Cup contender, the Boston Bruins missed out on acquiring top centers Elias Lindholm and Sean Monahan in recent trades.

Lindholm was traded to the Vancouver Canucks, while Monahan joined the Winnipeg Jets.

Both deals involved a 2024 first-round draft pick, a commodity the Bruins lack due to previous trades. General Manager Don Sweeney, hesitant to use the 2025 first-round pick as trade bait, faces challenges in bolstering the team's center position.

With a history of limited first-round picks, the Bruins' options for acquiring a Top 6 center seem constrained as the NHL trade market evolves.
