Boston Bruins Rumors: 2 Possible Landing Spots for Derek Forbort

The Boston Bruins are hoping to improve at the center position before the start of the season but have very limited cap space. Because of this, Derek Forbort has been discussed as a trade candidate. Let's discuss two possible landing spots for the shutdown defenseman now.

Winnipeg Jets: A return to the Winnipeg Jets could be on the table for Forbort. The Bruins have been linked to Mark Scheifele, and Forbort could be one of the many pieces added to a possible trade package to help things work out financially. He also would be a strong addition to their bottom pairing and penalty kill. 

Calgary Flames: The Calgary Flames, another one of Forbort's former teams, could also consider a reunion with him. The left side of their defensive group could use a boost and a bit more reliability defensively. Furthermore, Boston has been linked to Elias Lindholm, so Forbort could be added to a trade package to help things from a financial standpoint.
