With the NHL offseason coming to a close, teams are starting to look towards training camp.
Not much is left on the free agent market and like every year, we might look forward to at least one big trade before the opening of training camp.
Two teams looking to fill needs and looking to make a run for the Stanley Cup are the Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers.
The two could actually end up being perfect trade partners.
Boston has been looking to try and find some help for David Krejci on the team's second line and have been rumored to be willing to move Torey Krug if they can land that help.
The Philadelphia Flyers on the other hand need some help on the blueline and have been labeled as willing to move Wayne Simmonds as he enters the final year of his contract.
Would a Krug for Simmonds swap make sense?
Krug is a lefty and Philly needs some help on the left side with only Ivan Provorov and Robert Hagg there for the moment, while Simmonds' playing style would fit perfect on the Bruins and he would give Krejci some space on the ice. Both players would also help bolster and give new looks to their new team's powerplay units. For the Bruins, McAvoy could step up and easily eat Krug's powerplay minutes, while the Flyers would hold a great powerplay 1-2 punch with Krug and Shayne Gostisbehere on the blueline.
Both players hold modified no trade clauses but would be heading to playoff teams.
Do you think this trade would make sense for both sides?
