Darren Dreger: That’s certainly the hope of the Boston Bruins and of Jarome Iginla as well. I know Peter Chiarelli, the Bruins general manager, reached out to Don Meehan from Newport Sports last week. There’s been no official back-and-forth in terms of dialogue or a negotiation and the reality is that the Bruins don’t have the tag room or the cap space to close this deal in-season.

The Bruins shouldn’t be in need of a new No. 1 goaltender for some time, but Subban appears to be a viable candidate. Or, perhaps, a very valuable chip in a possible trade.
Here are a few names to keep in mind when the Bruins get serious about a veteran defenseman on the trade market:
Chiarelli could try to find a more experienced defenseman on the trade market, perhaps dangling a young blueliner to a non-contender for a player with a little more on his resume. The Sabres’ Henrik Tallinder comes to this mind, while the Rangers’ Dan Girardi, the Jets’ Mark Stuart and the Senators’ Chris Phillips — all unrestricted free agents at season’s end — have come to others’.
