Throughout the course of the season, the Boston Bruins diligently sought a new destination for Mike Reilly, but their efforts were in vain. Consequently, it comes as no surprise that they plan to resume their search for a suitable trade partner for Reilly this summer.

The Bruins' financial constraints, with limited cap space heading into the offseason, make moving Reilly and his $3 million cap hit a pressing matter. It is evident that the Chicago native would welcome a change of scenery, having spent the majority of the season with the Providence Bruins due to his hefty cap hit.

Reilly has proven himself as a capable defenseman at the NHL level, particularly excelling in a bottom-pairing role. As a result, there might be potential interest from other teams. However, the stumbling block lies in the fact that the Bruins will likely need to sweeten the deal by parting ways with a draft pick or two, given their well-known cap constraints.

Ultimately, we can only wait and see if Reilly will indeed be on the move. A trade would likely prove beneficial for both the player and the team, allowing them to address their respective needs and aspirations.
