Bruins Off-Season Heating Up: Seguin Trade Talks, Horton Tries Free Agency

Nathan Horton, Tyler Seguin could possibly find their way out of Boston in the next few weeks

It has been quite a hectic few weeks in Boston sports. Just about a week following the crushing Bruins loss in Game 6 to the Chicago Blackhawks, the B’s have taken no time off as the NHL Draft takes place this weekend.

In a tweet early Saturday afternoon, Bob Mckenzie of TSN Canada tweeted that Bruins forward Nathan Horton will explore free agency come July 5th:

Nathan Horton a huge component of the 2011 Stanley Cup team is not the only Bruins player whose future in Boston is up in the air as Tyler Seguin has been mentioned in trade rumors. Seguin is set to make $5.75 million of the next six years and Boston is trying to battle against the new salary cap ($6.43 M) while re-signing current players. The draft is deep this year and the B’s could potentially receive a 10 top ten draft pick. The Lightning are said to be the front runner in these trade rumors.

It would be hard to believe the Bruins would cut ties with two of their best forwards at once, but with Seguin’s contract, a trade would make sense. However, the Bruins can’t afford to the lose another prolific goal scorer in Horton.
