A blockbuster trade is brewing between the Boston Bruins and the Calgary Flames that would bring this struggling centre to Boston.

Bruins Looking to Trade For Lindholm to Shore Up the Middle of the Ice



The Boston Bruins are proving to be the frontrunners to sit atop the standings for this year's regular season. However, to succeed in the playoffs, they still need to make some additions down the middle of the ice.

Now, it has been rumoured that they are looking to the Calgary Flames for just this, in a trade that would bring Elias Lindholm to the Boston Bruins.


With Jeff Marek of the Jeff Marek Radio Show highlighting the Bruins' need for a stronger presence in the center ice position, NHL rumors are swirling about Boston's interest in Lindholm.


Lindholm Could Use a Change of Scenery this Year and the Flames Could Use the Assets



Lindholm is having an okay season, with 15 points in 23 games so far this year. However, he is in the last year of his contract. The Flames, unless they see him in their long-term plans, should take advantage of the potential return they could get from Boston, instead of seeing him walk away for free this offseason.

Possible #Flames for trade with #NHLBruins

D Noah Hanifin 5-6-11 $4.95 mil UFA
C Elias Lindholm 5-10-15 $4.85 UFA

Blake Coleman and Mikael Backlund both have full NMC


That, of course, is assuming the Flames don't think they have a shot at winning it all themselves this year. Currently, the Flames sit in the middle of the pack at 10-10-3. As the deadline approaches, we will see if they become sellers.
