Shocking 4-Player Trade Surfaces For The Boston Bruins

Published February 27, 2024 at 5:55 PM

Amidst the chatter leading up to the trade deadline, the future of Jake DeBrusk hangs in the balance for the Boston Bruins.

Talks of a contract extension have hit a wall, leaving fans wondering if DeBrusk will stick around as a 'rental player' for the Bruins or if he'll find a new home elsewhere, as Jimmy Murphy of Boston Hockey Now notes.

In the midst of speculation, Allan Mitchell of The Athletic has floated an intriguing trade scenario involving DeBrusk heading back to his hometown team, the Edmonton Oilers. This proposed deal would see DeBrusk and Derek Forbort heading to Edmonton in exchange for Brett Kulak and Warren Foegele.

While DeBrusk's recent form has been underwhelming, a change of scenery in Edmonton alongside star forward Leon Draisaitl could reignite his game. Conversely, the Bruins would gain defensive depth with Kulak and a potential offensive spark in Foegele.

With both teams facing salary cap constraints and limited draft assets, this proposed trade presents a creative solution to address needs and shake up rosters in a significant manner.
