With the speculations and rumours flying over the league and yesterday's announcement that Jakob Chychrun will be a healthy scratch due to trade procedures, we can only speculate that the Bruins are one of many teams in on the Jakob Chychrun discussion.
With the recent conversations made by Jeff Marek, claiming that the Los Angeles Kings, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Edmonton Oilers are out on a Chychrun trade, it only opens the door for Don Sweeney and the Boston Bruins.
Alternatively, what would it cost the Boston Bruins if they were to trade for the young, stud, defenseman? It would likely cost the B's multiple prospects, a defensemen, a depth piece and potentially multiple first-round picks.
To start, of course, Boston would be inclined to send over Fabian Lysell, John Beecher, or even Mason Lohrei. The Arizona Coyotes are in a massive rebuilding stage, and a prospect like Fabian Lysell could further boost their prospect pool.
But will Don Sweeney pull the string on a Fabian Lysell? The Swedish star is Boston's clear top prospect, excelling this season in the AHL. Lysell is among the rookie leaders in points with ten goals and 16 assists in 31 games as a 20-year-old. Furthermore, Lysell holds all the characteristics of a future Bruin player with his offensive talent and gritty, competitive mindset.
Additionally, both Beecher and Lohrei are interesting prospects. Beecher is a former first-round pick of the Bruins from the 2019 NHL Draft, while Lohrei was drafted as an overager in the second round of the 2020 NHL Draft. If Fabian Lysell was not included in a trade, it is fairly likely that both Beecher and Lohrei would be going the other way.
