Finding a center to replace those who retired has been on the list for the Boston Bruins during the summer. The summer is moving into the Fall but it’s not cooling any of the talk of them pursuing centers.
Boston Hockey Now’s Jimmy Murphy writes that if the Bruins want to go after Shane Pinto, it’s going to cost them. From Murphy:
The NHL trade cost will be high, and if the Bruins want Pinto, that could mean parting ways with top prospects Fabian Lysell and Johnny Beecher.
“Ottawa wants to make the playoffs, but they’re up against the cap, so we’re talking high-end prospects that could crack the roster this season,” the source told BHN. “That’s probably Fabian Lysell and Johnny Beecher.”
As they always say, in order to get something, you often have to give something up. The Boston Bruins might have to go down that road to get the 22-year-old centerman.
