The report also notes that Phoenix Coyotes defenseman Keith Yandle, who has been mentioned as a top trade option in the last few months, "would love to play for the Bruins."
Yandle is entering the second year of a five-year, $26.25 million contract that he signed last summer, but is a Boston native who could look to move back home to continue his promising career.
The young blueliner collected 11 goals and 32 assists for 43 points in 82 games with the Coyotes last season.
Several rumors have linked Yandle to the Bruins, who could also look to land Calgary Flames blueliner Jay Bouwmeester to pair up with their captain.
While Bruins GM Peter Chiareilli has yet to put an offer on the table for Bouwmeester, he reportedly has one on hands for Yandle.
Although the Bruins' camp has not confirmed if a trade offer is indeed on the table, signs point to Yandle being very interested in moving to Beantown.
However, the Bruins would most likely have to part with a talented young player in return for Yandle.
Forward David Krejci is about to enter the first year of his new three-year $15.75 million contract and could become suitable trade bait for Yandle seeing that they both carry an annual cap hit of $5.25 million.
Meanwhile, the Bruins remain in contract talks with the likes of Tyler Seguin, Andrew Ference, Milan Lucic and Brad Marchand.
