The Boston Bruins are off to an incredible start to the year but are still looking to fill some gaps in the roster, which they are reportedly looking to the Oilers to do.

Bruins Looking to Replace Bergeron and Krejci To Bolster Roster



The Bruins have sailed past all expectations this season, coming out to an incredible 14-3-3 to start the year. This is especially impressive as they lost two of their best players this offseason in Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci. It appears that they have a real shot at making a push this year, but just need a little extra firepower to do so, filling the gap left by the two now-retired veterans.

It has been reported that the Bruins will look to the Oilers to fill that gap. The Bruins have been linked to Ryan Nugent-Hopkins in the past, and he would fit their needs exactly.

Oilers Are At a Decision Point in Their Struggling Season



The Oilers could be desperate enough to part ways with Nugent-Hopkins. He is no doubt skilled, with 18 points in 20 games this year and coming off a career-best 104-point season last year. However, the Oilers are in desperate need of a defenseman or a goaltender.

The Bruins could leverage their top-tier goaltenders Linus Ullmark and Jeremy Swayman to try and get something done for Nugent-Hopkins. He would instantly push the Bruins lineup to the next level, making them a true contending team.
