The Bruins Have Inquired About A Red Wings Forward.

With the Boston Bruins in the midst of making a serious push towards the Stanley Cup playoffs, many expect the team to make at least one addition during the trade deadline. 

We've heard some pretty big names like Rick Nash and Ryan McDonagh of the Rangers and some more mid-tier names like Patrick Maroon of the Oilers and Thomas Vanek of the Canucks, however it looks like Bruins general manager Don Sweeney is interested in a Detroit Red Wings forward. 

According to Craig Custance of The Athletic, the Bruins have inquired about the availability of center Darren Helm. 

The Wings center is 31 years old and has 22 points in 51 games so far this year which includes seven goals. Helm would be more of depth addition than help with the teams offense, as he plays a smart two way game and works hard every shift.

The only problem is that Custance adds that the Bruins were trying to send a bad contract the other way, something the Wings aren't at all interested in. Helm himself is only on the second year of a five year deal which carries a $3.85million cap hit per season.

Do you think Helm would fit into the Bruins system and be a good addition for the playoff push?
