The Boston Bruins continue to rip through the NHL with some incredible play, despite going 8-0-2 in their last 10 games the team still has it's holes. 

24 year old Matt Grzelcyk has been doing a formidable job on the left side of the team's last pairing on defense, however there's some concern whether he can keep it up throughout the season and into the playoffs. 

When looking at TSN's latest Trade Bait board, Bruins analyst Joe Haggerty pointed out and circled Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Ian Cole as realistic target and a player who fits the criteria for the majority of the team's needs. 

Cole is set to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of season and carries a $2.1million cap hit this year. 

The defenseman has been a healthy scratch at times this season, many believe it's because Penguins GM Jim Rutherford doesn't want him to get injured with the team needing a boost through trade. 

Cole has seven points in 36 games so far this season and 84 points in 374 games during his NHL career. 

Do you think he would be a good fit on the team's last pairing?
