Rumour Report: Pastrnak trade rumour surfaces

A bombshell report suggests the Bruins may look to trade star forward David Pastrnak.

  • The Bruins are apparently have trouble getting RFA David Pastrnak signed to a new deal, and rumours of a potential trade have leaked out. The 21 year old forward broke out for 70 points this past season as has emerged as one of Boston's franchise players moving forward.

  • It would certainly be a shock if this rumour were true. As with many RFA negotiations, the threat of a trade or refusing to show up to camp are used as leverage tactics. Quite often the sides eventually come together, but other times it can have a lasting damage the relationship.
  • Pastrnak would be far from the only RFA in recent years to have acrimonious relations with their team - the names Ryan O'Reilly, Jonathan Drouin and Jacob Trouba come to mind. We'll follow the story as more details emerge.
