NHL Rumors: Bruins Could Make "Last-Ditch Attempt" For Jets Star Center

As the NHL season inches closer, anticipation builds around the possibility of a last-minute trade involving Winnipeg Jets forward Mark Scheifele and the Boston Bruins.

Amid ongoing trade rumors, the Bruins find themselves in search of a skilled center to bolster their lineup.

Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press suggests that the return of general managers from their vacations could spur trade discussions, potentially leading to a late push for Scheifele's acquisition by the Bruins.

Speculation abounds regarding the proposed trade package, with reports indicating that the Bruins might consider offering forward Jake DeBrusk and a first-round draft pick to secure Scheifele's services.

The Bruins' need for a center and Scheifele's playmaking abilities make this potential trade scenario intriguing for fans and analysts alike.

However, opinions vary among enthusiasts, with some believing the Bruins might lack the assets desired by the Jets, while others see Scheifele as an ideal fit to address the Bruins' needs.

Scheifele is coming off a career-best season in goals scored with 42, but still managed to record just 68 total points across 81 games played, with a -16 plus/minus rating.

Last season, DeBrusk showcased his scoring prowess with an impressive 50 points (27 goals and 23 assists) in 64 games played, reigniting interest in his potential value. Photo Credit: James Carey Lauder-USA TODAY Sports
