The Boston Bruins are lacking scoring talent and could look at a rival for their next superstar.

Bruins Linked To Buchenvich



Recently, insider Eklund of HockeyBuzz.com revealed that the Boston Bruins have been pursuing Pavel Buchnevich of the St. Louis Blues heavily.

Pavel is signed in STL for one more year, after the current one with the Blues, and they have been trying to extend himhowever, where will he land on the scales? The Bruins are being very aggressive on this I am told.

Buchnevich would certainly be a big catch for the Bruins as he has produced above a point-per-game rate ever since being traded to the Blues in the summer of 2021.

How Much Buchnevich Would Cost



Last season, Buchnevich scored 26 goals and 67 points in 63 games (34-goal/87-point pace). He is currently entering the second to last year of his deal which carries a $5.8 million cap hit so whomever he goes to if traded will have some contract control.


Players like Buchnevich don't always hit the trade market so there will be many assets who could be going back to the Blues if they decide to trade him.

Mock Trade
To BOS:
Pavel Buchnevich

To STL:
Fabian Lysell
Brandon Carlo
2026 2nd round pick

This trade would give the Bruins a top-notch goal scorer while the Blues would get a solid defenseman in Carlo, a top prospect in Lysell, and a pick that they can use whichever way they want.
