Ranking Bruins' top assets entering 2021 NHL trade deadline originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The Boston Bruins have cooled off after a hot start to the 2020-21 NHL season, but they still are in the mix for a top seed in the East Division playoff race.

The B's are in a difficult position as the April 12 trade deadline nears. They have a few genuine weaknesses to address, most notably 5-on-5 scoring and the left side of the blue line. Acquiring a top-six forward and/or a top-four defenseman would be a huge upgrade for this roster.

Based on the ages and contractual statuses of players in the Bruins' veteran core, this season could represent the team's final chance to compete for a Stanley Cup championship for the foreseeable future. Bruins general manager Don Sweeney must be aggressive in bolstering the roster before the playoffs.

What trade assets does Sweeney have to make these deals? Let's rank the team's best trade chips.
