Bob McKenzie Labels Bruins As Possible Front Runners For Panarin.

It's all anybody talks about, how the Boston Bruins need to add some scoring as it'll be hard to succeed with just one consistent offensive line in the playoffs. 

With the chemistry between Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak, it makes no sense to split them up, however it leaves David Krejci on an island on his own on the second line. 

We've heard the Bruins attached to upcoming Columbus UFA Artemi Panarin before, and now it seems like it's heating up. 

Panarin's agent came out Monday saying his agent won't negotiate any contract with Columbus or any other team until July 1st, fans then boo'd the forward during Tuesday night's home game.

His time in Columbus is clearly coming to an end and NHL Insider Bob McKenzie labeled the Bruins as a top destination. 

McKenzie added it'll likely take a first round pick and a really good prospect, possibly something else or maybe a combination of a first round pick, second pick and top prospect for the Bruins to acquire Panarin.
