The Bruins are looking to get back to the first round. Could they trade Nick Faligno?
“Ideally we would like to get back to the first round. There are a few teams that are well positioned in the first round with a few, so the conversations are definitely happening. Some teams are just in pick mode and not in draft mode, so it’s a little bit harder to get into that situation,” Sweeney said during a media appearance in Montreal on Wednesday morning. “And give up good players. When you’re a competitive team, it’s hard to part with really good players, even if you want to go in the first round and improve your overall potential. That’s generally what a competitive team strives to be, and we’re no different than a lot of other teams that have given up first-round picks.”
The Bruins talked to the Columbus Blue Jackets about the 12th overall pick.
The Arizona Coyotes are willing to take on a salary cap. Can the Bruins shed $3.8M on Nick Foligno?
Dylan Strom likely headed to free agency
Bob McKenzie: Not surprisingly, it doesn’t look like the Chicago Blackhawks will be qualifying forward Dylan Strome. He will become a UFA on July 13th if he does not qualify by July 11th
It’s not a huge surprise, but it looks like Dylan Strome will be moving toward UFA status @TSNBobMcKenzie

Cottage on the block
A top 15 selection will likely be required to acquire the Dach.
John Dietz: Kirby-Dach trade talks ‘really heating up’.
The Columbus Blue Jackets and Detroit Red Wings are showing interest. The Blackhawks want a first-round pick.
Pierre Lebrun: The Blackhawks listen on the front lines and are open to almost anything.
Dach struggled and only played 87 games over the last 2 seasons
