The Edmonton Oilers have been struggling and are desperate to get better offensively. While Ken Holland has been steadfast that this group is going to figure it out, this group just has not figured it out yet.
Making a move might be the only option for Edmonton and that is a situation that Boston could take advantage of. Boston could add a solid depth player like Kailer Yamamoto or even Tyler Benson along with a draft pick for DeBrusk as long as they hold back some salary on a move.
I will admit this is not the best win-now mode move for Boston, but it would secure some solid assets on a player the Bruins are actively looking to move.
The salary cap side of things might not be the easiest situation in a trade like this, but the Bruins could potentially work it out.
