1:30 p.m.: This probably doesn’t come as much of a surprise at this point, but it doesn’t sound like the Bruins will be in on Ryane Clowe now that they’ve reportedly added Jaromir Jagr.
RDS’ Renaud Lavoie just tweeted that the Bruins “won’t be a possible destination” for the Sharks forward after Boston’s reported trade for Jagr.
1 p.m.: One of the hockey season’s biggest holidays has started early, as while the NHL trade deadline is still more than 24 hours away, business has already started to pick up.
Big names have been changing sweaters for the last week or two, but things have really picked up in a big way over the last few hours.
The biggest move of the day so far? According to multiple reports, the Bruins have acquired future Hall of Famer Jaromir Jagr from the Dallas Stars in exchange for a pair of prospects and a pick.
That came after the club reportedly sent center Derek Roy to the Vancouver Canucks for a prospect and a draft pick. That’s a good move for the Canucks, who have been looking to shore up their depth down the middle. Once they get Ryan Kesler back and healthy, that vaunted offense should only improve.
