Bruins Want Dan Hamhuis, Hamhuis Doesn't Want Boston

Canucks veteran D-man unlikely to waive no-trade clause for Bruins.

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The Bruins are interested in Canucks defenseman Dan Hamhuis, but that doesn't mean they'll be trading for him. Hamhuis has a no-trade clause and is looking to waive it for a contending team.

So, yeah, this is currently where the Bruins stand. Dallas saved their bacon by taking Kris Russell off the market, but Sweeney may not be willing to look elsewhere. At the moment, it appears his two options were Russell and Hamhuis. One of them, awful, the other, unavailable. Hopefully the scenario changes in the next hour.
