You heard the other day how the Bruins are reportedly after Gabriel Landeskog.
Today we get a series of Tweets from Adrian Dater. For those who don’t know him, he’s currently with Bleacher Report and is like the Kevin Paul Dupont of the Avs beat: he’s been covering them for years.
The reason this is relevant is because Dater is plugged in, so this is probably solid info.
He confirmed that the Bruins are, indeed, making calls out west on Landeskog, and that the Avs’ return ask is very, very high.
Hearing Boston has had talks with Avs over Landeskog. Sakic wanted Carlo, and B's said no— Adrian Dater (@adater) January 5, 2017
Bruins countered with Zboril, but he's too unproven— Adrian Dater (@adater) January 5, 2017
Zbobil, Morrow, DeBrusk and Bruins #1 pick could be part of potential package— Adrian Dater (@adater) January 5, 2017
THANK YOU, SWEENEY.
Moving Carlo for Landeskog would just shift the problems around for the Bruins: they’d add help up front and add a gaping hole on defense.
It’ll be interesting to see how things progress here: has Sweeney made his “best and final” or are negotiations just starting?
