3 shocking predictions made for the Boston Bruins upcoming 2023-24 season

Boston Bruins, a team undergoing major transition with the recent retirement of Patrice Bergeron. As the Bruins adapt to the changes, let's explore three bold predictions for their next season:

1. Pavel Zacha Shines with 80 Points:

With Zacha taking over as the new number one center in Boston, we expect him to have a breakout season. Last year, he recorded 57 points in 82 games, but we believe he'll reach new heights in 2023-24. The Bruins will heavily rely on the 26-year-old Czechia center, and his increased ice-time should result in at least 80 points.

2. Bruins Make a Goalie Trade:

With a cap space constraint of $5.4 million and the need to sign Jeremy Swayman for next season, the Bruins may have to part ways with one of their goalies to free up space for potential additions up front. Swayman, at 22 years old and coming off a solid .920 save percentage in 2022-23, could draw interest from other teams if Boston decides to make a trade.

3. Early Playoff Exit:

Despite regular-season success, the Bruins' depth and goaltending issues may come back to haunt them in the playoffs. After a heartbreaking first-round exit at the hands of the Florida Panthers last season, we foresee a similar outcome in 2023-24. The Bruins will likely face challenges in the postseason, leading to another early exit.

As the new season approaches, these bold predictions will add excitement to the Bruins' journey, and we'll be eagerly watching to see how they unfold on the ice.
