The NHL rumor mill is once again churning with whispers of a potentially seismic trade between the Boston Bruins and Ottawa Senators.

Could Linus Ullmark, the Bruins’ Vezina Trophy-winning goaltender, be on his way to Ottawa in exchange for the dynamic defenseman Jakob Chychrun?

According to Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, Senators general manager Steve Staios had previously pursued Ullmark before the March trade deadline, and it appears those discussions are being revisited. This comes as no surprise, as Ullmark’s stellar performance over the past few seasons has made him one of the most coveted assets in the league.

Linus Ullmark for Jakob Chychrun: Could This Blockbuster Trade Happen?

The Senators are in desperate need of a proven goaltender to solidify their crease, and Ullmark fits that bill perfectly. However, the Bruins won’t part with their star netminder without a substantial return. The asking price is rumored to include Jakob Chychrun, and a first-round draft pick.

Adding another layer of complexity to this potential trade is Ullmark’s no-movement clause. He has the power to veto any trade, making his willingness to join the Senators a crucial factor. Furthermore, the financial implications of such a deal cannot be ignored, as both players carry significant cap hits. The Bruins might be willing to take on Anton Forsberg, the Senators’ current back-up goaltender, to offset some of the financial burden.

While the trade is far from a done deal, the mere possibility has sent shockwaves through the NHL landscape. Both teams have much to gain from this potential swap.
