Boston Bruins interested in Brayden Schenn
CLS Media: Jimmy Murphy reports the Boston Bruins are talking with the St. Louis Blues about a trade for Brayden Schenn. The Blues are shopping Vladimir Tarasenko but the Bruins have more interest in Schenn because of a cheaper price, with a cheaper cap hit and less term and could solve the Bruins second line scoring issues.
Schenn, 27, a four-time 20-goal scorer is struggling this season with just seven goals and 15 assists. However, with his history, age, and just one more year left with a $5.1 million cap hit, he very well could be worth parting with some of the Bruins prospects and even roster players if need be.
Murphy states the Bruins will likely have to part ways with Danton Heinen or Matt Grzelcyk as far as roster players go, or maybe Peter Cehlarik in Providence to go along with a draft pick(s).
