According to John Buccigross of ESPN, the Bruins and Islanders are discussing a trade for Matt Moulson. The Islanders would receive draft picks in return. However, Bob Mckenzie of TSN, rules out the Bruins as a potential suitor for Moulson. Here is what McKenzie tweeted:
“if the NYI are trading Matt Moulson, as has been reported/rumored elsewhere, I am told it’s not to Boston.”
Moulson commands a 2.45 million dollar cap hit this season, meaning the Bruins would have to shed salary to get him in under the cap. Also if Moulson were to come here, where would he be slotted? The Bruins have too many forwards, with Blake Wheeler already being bumped to the fourth line in this afternoon’s game. Therefore, Moulson to Boston seems unlikely.
