The New Jersey Devils have already made one big trade this season. Maybe they will be willing to make another move.
Now I will admit that this would be more of a gamble for the team. Miles Wood hasn’t had an amazing career but he is young and has a decent contract.
Wood’s best season came in 2018. In 76 games, Wood had 19 goals and 13 assists.
This season hasn’t been so special for Wood. He only has 4 goals and 6 assists. He wouldn’t even crack the top 10 in scoring for Boston.
But I think we have yet to see the best of Wood. I think he could become a perfect partner for David Krejci. If he can get 20 goals and 15 assists that wouldn’t be so bad.
Wood also wouldn’t cost as much as the other targets. A prospect or a mid-level draft pick might get Wood to Boston.
So it will be interesting to see what the Boston Bruins do at the trade deadline.
