The price for the Boston Bruins to pay to acquire the elite talent of Jake Guentzel has officially been revealed.

Jake Guentzel has officially been placed on the trade market and if the Boston Bruins want to acquire someone of his caliber they will have a big price to pay.
When the Hurricanes brought Jake Guentzel in, he didn't have an extension in place and the team thought they would have a good chance to work one out with him, but things have taken a turn for the worst for the Carolina Hurricanes.
Recent reports have revealed that Guentzel will be testing the free agent market this off-season as negotiations have failed between his team and the Hurricanes.
Elliotte Friedman revealed the asking price for teams interested in acquiring him. They are asking for a first-round pick for his signing rights.
"The price to pay? A first round pick. This is what Elliotte Friedman reports.

It appears (Jake Guentzel) is available for a 1st round pick. I think Carolina has let everyone know that if you want to trade for his rights, for a chance to sign him, it's possible in exchange for a first-round pick. - Elliotte Friedman

The Boston Bruins don't have a 1st round pick until next year in the 2025 draft, and even if they were to trade that pick to Carolina it still doesn't mean that Guentzel will re-sign with the team as come July 1st he could still go to free agency.
Guentzel could be a game-changer for the Bruins as they are looking for secondary scoring and Guentzel is a multiple time 40-goal scorer, but at this price I don't think the Bruins should risk trading for him, just for him to walk in free agency anyways.
Do you think the Boston Bruins should trade their first-round pick next year for Jake Guentzel?
