Should the Boston Bruins explore the potential acquisition of Minnesota Wild winger Pat Maroon?

Throughout their recent three-game downturn, Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery emphasized the need for increased physicality and a tougher team demeanor.
In the aftermath of an embarrassing 5-2 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets, Montgomery expressed frustration, stating,
«I think we've just been an easy team to play against.»

Seeking the desired toughness, defenseman Derek Forbort and winger Trent Frederic demonstrated it by retaliating against a hit on Bruins captain Brad Marchand.
Since the arrest of winger Milan Lucic, some fans and media suggest the Bruins lack his intimidating presence. Although not confirmed, there's speculation that Bruins GM Don Sweeney might target a player like Pat Maroon, a rugged winger and three-time Stanley Cup champion.
An NHL executive source mentioned,
«I'm starting to hear his name out there»

The 6-foot-3, 234-pound Maroon, traded to the Wild last July, previously played for the Tampa Bay Lightning, Anaheim Ducks, Edmonton Oilers, New Jersey Devils, and the St. Louis Blues.
Known for his physicality, Maroon racked up over 100 penalty minutes in each of the last two seasons, including 10 fights in the 2021-22 season. In the final year of a two-year, $2 million contract, the source suggests Maroon might be available for a trade at a cost similar to the 2024 seventh-round pick the Wild used to acquire him.
