Do the Boston Bruins lead the NHL in trade rumors and speculation? Don Sweeney is such an aggressive general manager when it comes to considering his options that the Bruins are constantly in the rumor mill.
The Bruins are connected to buyout free agents Keith Yandle, a Boston native, plus Ryan Suter. You still hear rumblings about Jack Eichel and the Bruins still have to sign Tuukka Rask.
