Oliver Ekman-Larsson trade rumors: Bruins don't like Coyotes' asking price
Report: B dislikes Coyotes' asking price for the OEL deal, which originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
We seem to have reached the "hardball" stage of the trade negotiations between Oliver Ekman and Larsson.
The Bruins are reportedly a serious contender for the Coyotes defender, who prefers to be traded to Boston or the Vancouver Canucks before the NHL agency begins Friday, or according to his agent, to stay in Arizona if there is no agreement is achieved.
However, according to TSN's Darren Dreger, the Bruins and Coyotes disagree in trade talks over Ekman-Larsson.
A recent report suggested that the Coyotes prefer the Bruins' prospects to the Canucks, so Boston appears to have leverage in this situation if the Coyotes want to deal with Ekman-Larsson, who is seven more years on an immovable contract with annual sales of $ 8.25 million to do has hit cap.
Based on Dreger's report, Arizona general manager Bill Armstrong wants a better package of these prospects than what the Bruins are offering.
Bean: Are fireworks coming for the Bruins?
Ekman-Larsson would have an urgent need for the B's when top defender Torey Krug leaves at the free agency and the team has multiple quality prospects, including striker Jack Studnicka, striker Trent Frederic and defender Urho Vaakanainen.
How much are Don Sweeney and Co. willing to pay for a top 4 defender in Ekman-Larsson? We can find out in the next 24 hours.
