With Patrice Bergeron's retirement, the Boston Bruins face a pressing issue at the center position. Connecting Lindholm to the Bruins due to this need, the club seeks to strengthen their top-six with a standout center.

However, landing Lindholm may require a tough decision. According to a hockey operations source cited by Boston Hockey Now's Jimmy Murphy,
«If the Bruins want Lindholm, likely [Jake] DeBrusk. They don't want any picks, and the Bruins have none. They want a scoring winger that can make up for [Tyler] Toffoli being traded. There's probably more that would be in that trade, but DeBrusk would be the target, I think.»

The source emphasized that the focus would be on obtaining a scoring winger, compensating for Tyler Toffoli's departure.
While DeBrusk had a career-best season with 27 goals and 50 points in 64 games, the Bruins' need for a center presents a challenging dilemma. General Manager Don Sweeney may have to weigh the risks of making a significant move like this to acquire Lindholm.
On another note, THW writer Rob Couch also speculated on the potential of Trent Frederic initiating a Lindholm trade, highlighting the likelihood of additional moves involving Matt Grzelcyk or Derek Forbort to accommodate Calgary's deep defensive lineup.
