The inevitable split between the Bruins and Jake DeBrusk is officially upon us.
It couldn’t come at a worse time, either. Beyond the obvious of the B’s status as a team without their top left winger for the next three games due to a suspension, the 25-year-old hasn’t exactly rebuilt his value to where the Bruins would have hoped, with three goals and six points through 17 games this season prior to his scratch on Sunday night.
The DeBrusk camp also went public with word of their desire for a trade, which is, uh, never great for one’s trade value.
It’s all left Bruins general manager Don Sweeney in the unenviable position of trying to turn a poop sandwich (quick shoutout Justin Wlliams) into something palatable for a Black and Gold team that most definitely needs help.
So, just who or what could fit the bill for the Bruins in search of a helpful return?
