Boston Bruins general manager Don Sweeney is on record as saying if there’s an opportunity to improve the team, specifically on defense, he would consider it.

The Bruins should consider current Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Ian Cole. It appears the two-time Stanley Cup winner’s days in the Steel City are numbered. He’s been a healthy scratch the last three games and doesn’t appear to be in the team’s future plans.
