Don Sweeney Doesn't Make It Sound Like A Big Move Is Coming

Published February 21, 2018 at 2:23 PM

Don Sweeney helped his blue line by acquiring Nick Holden from the New York Rangers for Matt O'Gara and a draft pick.

The Bruins general manager still has until Monday afternoon to make more moves, but it sounded like any other trades will be minor.

"We're going to continue to look at the marketplace and see where guys may fit in, who's available, continue the calls that happen a lot more frequently this time of year and see where it goes," Sweeney told reporters on Tuesday, per 98.5 FM. "Our club has played well, but we've got a long way to go."

Elliotte Friedman brought up that he wouldn't be surprised if the Bruins are still trying to acquire Ryan McDonagh from the Rangers, but the comment above doesn't make you feel that he is looking to make a huge splash.

However, we all know that what a general manager says is not always what he means.  It is doubtful that Sweeney would pay a big price for McDonagh, Rick Nash or even Patrick Maroon, but you cannot rule them out at this point.  If the Bruins can swing a deal that doesn't include giving up anyone from the NHL roster then we might see something happen.
