Reda: The Jake DeBrusk situation continues in Boston. He was a healthy scratch over the weekend. He has officially asked for a trade. What kind of interest has he generated right now, Darren?

Darren Dreger: A significant amount, Geno. As many as 12 teams, maybe more than 12 teams have already checked in on the Jake DeBrusk situation with the Boston Bruins, but the reality is the Bruins now need Jake DeBrusk in their lineup. They've got Brad Marchand suspended, their American Hockey League team in Providence is dealing with a COVID issue, so they need him on the ice right now. I would say the New York Rangers are among the teams that have expressed some interest. You've got the Vancouver Canucks, maybe Montreal, maybe Calgary. Certainly Arizona. Go down the list. Historically speaking, when there's been other Jake DeBrusk trade situations and speculations, the St. Louis Blues have been near the top of that list as well. You talk about a kid who could score 20 to 25 and he's scored 16 times in the playoffs. So those stats matter.

Don't see why the Rangers have a need for him? At this point in time who do you take out of the lineup to fit Debrusk in?

Before I start...

He recently turned 25
262 games with the Bruins, 70 goals, 70 assists
Career high of 27 goals in his second season when he played in 68 games, but has just 43 goals in the other 194 games
Last year he had 5 goals and 9 assists in 41 games
This year he has 3 goals and 3 assists in 18 games
Currently earns $3.675M, but is an RFA this summer and has arbitration rights
He isn't a regular PK guy, though he has played a fair amount on the PP
He's a left handed shot who plays left wing

The anticipated value for him on the trade market is as low as a 3rd rounder

Doesn't make a lot of sense to me, the Rangers already have too many left wings, and he doesn't really fit the short term or long term need for the team. He might be worth a shot if the situation was different, but really doesn't make a lot of sense to me.
