Mark Scheifele has been a major star on the trade block this offseason, however, the Jets have struggled to move him based on the high asking price required for the star centre.

Potential Suitor Emerges

Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press has recently suggested that the Boston Bruins could be in the market for Scheifele. The Bruins are in desperate need of a centreman, as they lost their top 2 in Bergeron and Krejčí to retirement.

The Bruins need to act quickly to make this sort of deal happen, as any potential trade could get swept away by the busy-ness of the start of the season.

How to Make it work?

The deal would certainly be complex, as Boston doesn't have the cap room to bring Scheifele in. They would need to either clear some cap space in the move or be able to work some salary retaining deal out. Both options would require some significant assets on behalf of the Bruins, which might make the deal unworkable.
However, recent developments might suggest that the Bruins could be willing to part ways with one of their goaltenders - Ullmark or Swayman. This could be the piece of the puzzle that was missing before in a potential blockbuster deal.
