We have a huge trade rumor from one of the best sources in the business.
According to a report from the top Boston Bruins insider, Joe Haggerty, the Bruins are currently engaged in trade talks with multiple organizations as they attempt to trade center Ryan Spooner whom they reportedly feel does not fit with their playing style in Boston.
The 23-year-old Spooner was mentioned casually a few months ago as possible fodder in a Jacob Trouba deal with the Winnipeg Jets, but that deal never really materialized prior to the Jets signing their young, frontline D-man to a two-year deal. The Carolina Hurricanes, New York Islanders and San Jose Sharks have all expressed interest in Spooner, per one hockey source, as it appears that things simply aren’t going to work out for him in Boston.
Another interesting aspect to this rumor is the fact that the Bruins are not looking for help on defense in this trade. Haggerty reports that the Bruins are instead looking for a "top six forwrd" coming back their way in order to deal Spooner, but no word yet on who the Bruins may be targeting at this time.
Haggerty claims that multiple sources close to the situation have confirmed this news to him, and when it comes to the Bruins you can take Haggerty's word to the bank.
