What’s the Bruins fourth line going to look like this season?

Photo by Fred Kfoury III/Icon Sportswire via There’s a good chance the neo-merlot line has a new set of faces to start 2020-21. When looking forward to next season, one of the big question marks for Bruins fans (and really, for the Bruins themselves) is what the fourth line will look like. While one change is certain after Joakim Nordstrom signed with the Flames on Monday, the makeup of the Bruins' fourth line next season is as clear as mud at this point.
