A few weeks ago, exchange Rumors had been circulating that DeBrusk had requested a change from the Boston Bruins, in which he feels a trade of scenery will do him properly.
Macfarlane of Calgary Hockey Now reports the Calgary Flames should contact the Boston Bruins and provide up Nikita Zadorov. The Boston defence has been lacking a towering defenceman with a physical presence and Zadorov suits that bill.
Macfarlane went on to say, is signed to a one-12 months deal, the Flames may should sweeten the pot, however it could be a place to begin in their conversations.
Zadorov, 26, has a cap hit of $three.75 million, does no longer personal a -change clause and can be a UFA at the quit of the season. His cap hit is near what DeBrusk makes. DeBrusk is an RFA at the cease of this season and has more of an upside than Zadorov, so if a change were to show up, the Flames will in all likelihood have to upload a draft pick out for a potential exchange to take place.
