There have been rumblings connecting the Bruins to a number of forwards this season, but no rumblings were louder or more consistent than those linking the B’s to Tyler Toffoli of the Los Angeles Kings.
However, those rumblings were silenced on Monday evening, as reports indicate that Toffoli has been traded to the Vancouver Canucks.

Prospect Tyler Madden and 2020 2nd round pick in addition to Schaller for Toffoli.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) February 18, 2020
No salary retained by the Kings on Toffoli ($4.6 M AAV) because there's an NHL player in the return package which makes the money work. The Kings are getting a pick, a prospect and NHL player plus another conditional pick if Toffoli re-signs with Van— Pierre LeBrun (@PierreVLeBrun) February 18, 2020
So there you have it! This deal will surely evolve as the night goes on and my computer goes away, but it looks like it’s Toffoli to Vancouver for Tim Schaller, Tyler Madden (currently at Northeastern, drafted by the Canucks in the 3rd round in 2018), and a second-round pick.
If nothing else, at least we can take solace in our man Tim Schaller heading to sunny Los Angeles.
Your thoughts? Good deal for the Canucks, Kings, or both? Did the Bruins miss out, or was this too rich for your taste?
