Bruins seek to beef up on trade market

The NHL Trade Deadline is quickly approaching.



We're now exactly one week away from the National Hockey League Trade Deadline, and the Boston Bruins are one of the clubs that have had plenty of eyes on them. 

According to Bruins general manager Don Sweeney, he would be open to adding some punch to the roster reminiscent of the Big Bad Bruins days. 

"There’s the physical part of the game that we’re lacking at times," Sweeney said. "Maybe we’d like to try and address that. We’ve tried to use our depth throughout the organization. A lot of guys have done a tremendous job in that regard, but we may have to look to the outside to find some.”

The Bruins had already added some sandpaper to the lineup prior to the season with the return of former Stanley Cup champion Milan Lucic, who agreed to come back to the franchise that drafted him and with whom he spent the first several years of his NHL career. However, he's been out of action since earlier in the season following his arrest stemming from an incident that took place with his wife. 

A pair of players that the Bruins have been linked to are Flames defenseman Noah Hanifin, along with Coyotes defenseman Matt Dumba. 

The NHL Trade Deadline is March 8. What does the future hold for the Bruins?
