The Boston Bruins made a significant cap space move by trading Taylor Hall to the Blackhawks, creating $6 million in flexibility.

However, retaining pending unrestricted free agents like Dmitry Orlov seems unlikely due to financial limitations and Orlov's contract demands.
With just $10.9 million in cap space, keeping all three deadline acquisitions—Orlov, Tyler Bertuzzi, and Garnet Hathaway—appears improbable.
General Manager Don Sweeney remains non-committal about other pending free agents but prioritizes retaining top-six winger Bertuzzi.
The team may seek younger and more affordable options to replace Orlov and Hathaway.
Sweeney also faces challenges regarding the futures of Patrice Bergeron, David Krejci, Jeremy Swayman, Trent Frederic, and negotiating new deals.
The Bruins must navigate the market strategically given their limited cap space.
