Bruins Set To Target Franchise Player In The Off-Season

Published March 30, 2024 at 0:27

The Edmonton Journal's Jim Matheson recently delved into the future contract negotiations of star forward Leon Draisaitl with the Oilers.

Amidst speculation about Draisaitl's potential free agency, the Boston Bruins have emerged as a keen suitor, purportedly ready to pull out all the stops to acquire the superstar.

Matheson's remarks raise eyebrows, suggesting the Bruins' eagerness to secure Draisaitl's services as they seek to replenish their offensive arsenal. With the departure of key players like Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci, Boston sees Draisaitl as a pivotal addition to bolster their front line.

While the Bruins were previously linked to Elias Lindholm, who ultimately landed with the Vancouver Canucks, they may now pivot towards Draisaitl should he become available. The prospect of a potential blockbuster trade to bring Draisaitl to Boston looms large, signaling a seismic shift in the NHL landscape.

As contract negotiations unfold in Edmonton, all eyes remain fixated on Draisaitl's future, igniting speculation and anticipation across the league. The prospect of his potential move to Boston adds an intriguing twist to the ongoing offseason saga.

As seen on Bruins have targeted huge superstar on free agency scheme and could pull move of the decade!
