Bruins have strong interest in Ryane Clowe

 

Stars, Bruins keeping an eye on each other, could a trade be in order?

With the NHL trade deadline less than a month away, NHL scouts have been out and about getting in-person looks at the various players known to be on the trading block.

According to Twitter reports from The Fourth Period’s Dennis Bernstein and the Morning News’s Mike Heika, Boston has been one of the six teams that have attended the Stars’ last two games, along with Pittsburgh, Toronto, Columbus, Minnesota and the New York Rangers.

Boston Bruins could soon be adding Carl Soderberg from the Swedish Elite League

On TSN’s Insider Trading on Thursday night, Darren Dreger stated that the Boston Bruins could soon be adding Carl Soderberg from the Swedish Elite League once his current club Linkoping is out of the playoffs.

“He is 6’3″, 225 pounds and they believe he can play as a second line centre, second line winger or at worst case in their top nine,” Dreger said. “He’s the real deal.”

The powerhouse Bruins can add a big name or two thanks to the deft salary-cap maneuvering by GM Peter Chiarelli.

Some B’s fans are salivating at the possibilities that are out there.

But the GM wants everyone to know it’s not written in stone he’ll hit the home run.

Alfredsson can’t see himself being traded to Bruins

While Daniel Alfredsson appreciates the way former Ottawa Senators front office man Peter Chiarelli has constructed the Boston Bruins franchise over the last six years and would feel comfortable with familiar faces like Zdeno Chara and Chris Kelly within the dressing room, don’t expect the 40-year-old Ottawa captain to be coming to Boston.

So here’s an idea of the forwards that still fit the bill for the Black and Gold with Ryder scratched off the list:

JAROME IGINLA

The dream candidate on Boston’s list because he has played with a Bruins-style mentality throughout his entire career. The belief is that a winning situation could spark the 35-year-old’s game. He’s got power-forward size, a mean streak that will fit in well with the Black and Gold and enough offensive ability to post 32 goals and 67 points last season. There’s little doubt that he’s slowed down in the morass that is the Calgary Flames, and he’s got only three goals along with a minus-3 rating in 18 games.

Teams interested in Briere?

According to sources, Armstrong has been asking for forward Danny Briere. He isn’t the only one. Boston inquired about Briere last week, among others.

Briere, 35, is one player who isn’t going anywhere. The Flyers have not asked Briere to waive his no-trade clause, and it isn’t clear whether they’re interested in moving him, but he provided an answer Tuesday.

B’s could use a pick-me-up
