NHL Rumors: Bruins & Flyers Becoming Possible Trade Partners

It was recently by Anthony Di Marco of The Fourth Period that the Philadelphia Flyers are open to moving All-Star forward Kevin Hayes. If the Flyers were to move Hayes, now is a perfect time, as his trade value is at its highest due to his strong year. Di Marco also brought up a few potential landing spots for Hayes in his piece, and one club that stood out from it was the Boston Bruins.

The Bruins are playing out of this world right now, as they have a 32-4-4 record and are showing no signs of slowing down. As a result of this, they are expected to be major buyers at the deadline. This is especially true when noting that this could be the final season of both Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci's careers. As a result, it could make sense for the Bruins to bring the hometown kid to Boston.

The Flyers would need to retain salary for this move to have any chance of happening, but there definitely could be a fit here. After all, Hayes could be a long-term part of Boston's top six down the middle when Bergeron and Krejci call it quits, so this could a good move for the Bruins if they choose to pursue it.
