Fans don't think this Bruins goalie can create history this year

Linus Ullmark had a standout season, earning the prestigious Vezina Trophy for his goaltending heroics. But now, as trade rumors settle, fans wonder if he can do it again.

Consecutive Vezina wins are rare, with only Sergei Bobrovsky and Martin Brodeur achieving that feat in recent years. Ullmark faces a tough challenge, but if he maintains last season's form, he might have a chance.

However, changes in the Bruins' roster, including the retirements of Bergeron and Krejci, could affect his performance. With Jeremy Swayman as a capable backup, Ullmark might see less action.

Yet, Ullmark's advanced stats from last season, especially in high-danger situations, show his ability to make crucial saves. While replicating those stats is unlikely, he remains a strong Vezina contender.


What truly sets Ullmark apart is his knack for delivering key saves during pivotal moments. He's also proven his ability to secure wins, tying for the league lead with 40 wins last season.

If Ullmark secures another Vezina, he'd become the first Bruins goalie to achieve this milestone, joining a select group of legends in the franchise's history.
