The Boston Bruins beloved center has retired and the team will be searching for a replacement for Patrice Bergeron.
As we head into August there will be a lot of NHL trade rumors and chatter about the Boston Bruins making a trade for a center. Calgary Flames forward Elias Lindholm has already been linked to the Bruins.
One trade partner for the B’s could be the Vancouver Canucks as they would love to shed some salary to free up some much-needed salary cap space.
Boston Bruins packaging Pavel Zacha for Vancouver Canucks J.T. Miller
J.T. Miller was in the NHL trade rumors mill quite often last season but nothing materialized from the rumors. Yes, he has signed an eight-year contract extension with the Vancouver Canucks. That does not mean he can’t be traded. He could waive his no-move clause if he wants to play for a team he desires.
The Boston Bruins could be enticing to Miller and get the chance to play with a dynamic scorer like David Pastrnak.
What could it take for the Boston Bruins to make a J.T. Miller trade and make salaries work for both teams?
The Vancouver Canucks would get the Bruins first-round pick in 2026 along with forward Pavel Zacha and prospect Fabian Lysell.
The Boston Bruins would receive J.T. Miller and a 2024 fourth-round pick from the Vancouver Canucks.
The trade would free up $3,232,527 in much-needed salary cap space for the Canucks and the Bruins would land a first-line center.
