RUMOR: Bruins Eyeing The Perfect Patrice Begeron Replacement

Published September 4, 2023 at 6:16 PM

The Boston Bruins had a record breaking campaign in 2022-23, but unfortunately, it didn't result in much playoff success, and now, it's clear that a big change could be coming.

A big loss


This summer, the Bruins saw the retirement of both David Krejci and Patrice Bergeron, leaving them thin down the middle, and this now becomes their key area of improvement.

While they've been linked to players like Elias Lindholm this summer, now, their biggest target has been revealed, and it's one that could change the fortune of their entire organization.

A massive star

After his first 100 point career season, Elias Pettersson enters the final year of his contract, and with the Canucks struggling now and potentially in the future, it makes sense if both parties look to move on.

Now, the speculation has escalated, with the Bruins becoming a top landing spot for Pettersson, whether that be as a free agent or as a trade piece, as he would help them both now and in the future.

Pettersson could serve as a viable Plan B for the Bruins, who are actively seeking a dynamic center presence following the retirements of Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci. While Lindholm remains their primary target, if the Bruins take a big swing, Pettersson's youthful potential and extended prime years could render him an appealing alternative choice for the team.
