DeBrusk getting lots of interest
Ryan Rishaug: Early word is that a minimum of 8 groups have actually asked about Bruins Jake DeBrusk and more were anticipated.
Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet: The Bruins had actually taken a look at trading Jake DeBrusk last offseason. They’re open to accommodating his trade demand however Brad Marchand’s suspension and Anton Blidh make it harder to move him right now.
There has actually been great deals of interest in DeBrusk, consisting of the St. Louis Blues.
Just spitballing however what about the Seattle Kraken including Mason Appleton. Appleton’s fit with the Kraken hasn’t been as smooth as it was for him in Winnipeg.
DeBrusk is owed a $4 million certifying deal.
TSN: Darren Dreger stated that there might be 12 or more groups with some interest in Jake DeBrusk.
“As many as 12 teams, maybe more than 12 teams have already checked in on the situation with the Boston Bruins, but the reality is the Bruins now need in their lineup,” Dreger stated Tuesday on Insider Trading. “They’ve got suspended, their American Hockey League group in Providence is handling a COVID problem, so they require him on the ice today.
“I would state the New York Rangers are amongst the groups that have actually revealed some interest. You’ve got the Vancouver Canucks, perhaps Montreal, perhaps Calgary. Certainly Arizona. Go down the list. Historically speaking, when there’s been other trade circumstances and speculations, the St. Louis Blues have actually been near the top of that list too.
“You talk about a kid who could score 20 to 25 and he’s scored 16 times in the playoffs. So those stats matter.”
Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic: It’s not understood if any Jake DeBrusk trade looms. Teams are kicking tires. He brings a $4.85 million income this season.
Things aren’t working for DeBrusk, his worth is low and no one mores than happy. On source:
“I feel bad for him. I don’t think he gets what’s missing.”
The acquisition of Hall last season and his extension clouded DeBrusk’s future with the group.
Trading DeBrusk’s cap hit would offer the Bruins the cap area to sign goaltender Tuukka Rask.
Coach Bruce Cassidy on DeBrusk.
“I’d like to see him impact the game with his foot speed every night in some way, shape or form. Whether it’s forecheck, attacking the net, penalty kill, whatever the case may be. That’s kind of where we’re at. We’re starting to see that drop-off. So it’s a reminder of, ‘Hey, bring us the effort.’ And hopefully the production happens. But we need that.”
Should the Senators take a look at DeBrusk?
Shawn Simpson: DeBrusk is 25-years old and worth the try to find the Ottawa Senators. would use Zach Sanford and a draft choice.
“Word out of Boston on Debrusk. Great kid, with some nice skills. Doesn’t have the jam or consistency at this point.”
Hurricanes don’t seem thinking about DeBrusk
Sara Civ: Carolina Hurricanes GM Don Waddell when inquired about the schedule of Boston Bruins Jake DeBrusk.
