With Jeremy Swayman and Trent Frederic's contracts settled, the Boston Bruins have limited cap space and a full roster.

As they prepare for the upcoming season, the Bruins aim to add another prominent center, leading to potential roster adjustments.
Derek Forbort, a reliable shutdown defenseman and key penalty killer, may be considered, but his $3 million cap hit could become an issue given the constraints.
The Bruins have cheaper left-shot defense options, like Jakub Zboril and Mason Lohrei, for the bottom pairing.
Last season, Forbort demonstrated his defensive prowess, but a trade involving him might not yield significant returns due to the cap situation. The Bruins face a critical decision, weighing between a trade for cap space or retaining Forbort for his steady defensive contributions.
The offseason will reveal how the Bruins manage their roster dynamics amid cap challenges ahead of the new season.
