Bruins would have acquired Marcus Johansson from Devils – CBS Boston


3:10 p.m.: The deal between the Bruins and the Devils is for Marcus Johansson.

3:07 p.m.: Savvy Scoops introduces himself, saying the B's have an agreement with the Devils.

Joe McDonald heard the same thing …

It also seems that Tyler Toffoli is not moving.

3:05 p.m.: Delete another Bruins reported target. Wayne Simmonds in Nashville.

2:52 p.m.: Despite all reports suggesting that this would be necessary, Vegas does not have to give up a first-round pick to get Stone.

EriK Brannstrom, 19, was the Knights' 15th overall pick in 2017. He has totaled 7-21-28 in 48 games this season in the AHL as a left-back defender. Oscar Lindberg has a total of 34-37-71 in 232 career games in the NHL.

14h45: The Golden Knight seems to have won the Mark Stone contest.

2:44 p.m.: Marc Savard – aka Savvy Scoops – plans a big contract with the Bruins.

2:43 p.m.: Even more action, while Mikael Granlund speaks to the Predators.

2:32 p.m.: Another Stone update that does not involve the Bruins …

2:18 p .: Elliotte Friedman reports that Vegas is a favorite to land Stone, with Nashville and Calgary still in the mix. Notably absent from Friedman's tweet: the Boston Bruins.

2:06 p.m.: Adam McQuaid has gone from the Bruins to the Rangers in the off season. Now he's in Columbus.

And we are now at an hour of the deadline.

1:37 p.m.: At the right time, we have an exchange.

Derick Brassard goes from Panthers to Avalanche.

1:28 p.m.: It's pretty quiet as teams make their final assessments before the deadline. We will probably see a wave of action soon.

12:09: Bruce Cassidy clarified the absence of Kevan Miller, claiming that the defender was injured in the upper body after blocking a shot.

12:05: The Bruins "hide" on Mark Stone:

It looks like they have a little company.

As you would expect, Stone does not practice with Ottawa today:

11:55: It is always interesting to note that players are not present at the training on the day of the deadline. Could they be an important element of a potential trade? Or could they just have a contact with the stomach virus? We do not know the answer, but speculation is going well that day.

It is therefore interesting to note that Bruins defenseman Kevan Miller is absent from practice today.

Could Miller be moving? We will obviously have to stay tuned.

11:25: At this point, Philly behaves like a team that is not particularly keen on exchanging Wayne Simmonds. This is at least the conclusion to draw from the stated asking price.

11:12: The Hayes-Winnipeg Agreement is official.

It's a pretty heavy price to pay for Hayes, but it's the cost of doing business on the day of the deadline. The Jets are currently in first place in the Central Division, but have only one point ahead of Nashville.

11h: At the moment, the Calgary Flames can be excluded from the race for Mark Stone.

10:20: It seems that Kevin Hayes will soon be on the market.

The Jets are about to add the Dorchester native, according to Bob McKenzie.

Hayes has a total of 14-28-52 in 51 games played this year.

9:45: The Boston Bruins, in their current composition, constitute the second best team of the Eastern Conference. What will they look like at the end of the day?

This is the issue of concern to everyone as the team and the league are racing for the trade deadline today at 3 pm AND.

The Bruins have already been busy. Last week, the team acquired Charlie Coyle to consolidate the third line. The team added Lee Stempniak this weekend, a veteran striker who should be able to contribute as the last six.

But if the team really has to act to improve their status as a true contender for the Cup, it will be more upset than these two actions.

And according to TSN's Darren Dreger, B's are still among the biggest names in the deadline.

The Bruins are also on the verge of acquiring Gustav Nyquist before losing to the Kings.

Among the other big names that moved, Mats Zuccarello left New York to Dallas (and was immediately injured) and Ryan Dzingel went to Columbus.

Mark Stone is the most coveted asset of the league today. It will not go cheap to any team that wins. The 6-foot-4 winger has 62 points (28-34-62) in 59 games this year, and has scored 303 points in 343 games since the 2014-15 season.

Stone would help any contender at the Cup, but again, its price will be high and there will be no shortage of contenders. If the Bruins are not part of the Stone race, it seems they will at least try to sue Wayne Simmonds or Tyler Toffoli.

Toffoli scored 12 goals and 15 assists for the Kings this year, after scoring 24 goals last year. The 26-year-old has reached a career high with 31 goals in 2015-16. Toffoli played 47 playoff games, recording a total of 7-7-14 en route to a Stanley Cup victory in 2014.

Simmonds, 30, would certainly add hardness to any team that acquires it. He posted a total of 16-11-27 in 62 games this year. Three years ago, he scored 32 goals and 31 goals in two consecutive seasons. With 584 NHL experience matches (plus 30 playoff games), he has extensive experience.

Then, of course, there are wild cards that we may not have heard of yet. As for them – and all the reports and rumors of the day – we will provide updates right here, until the deadline.
