Don Sweeney faces a significant choice this summer concerning the recently obtained Tyler Bertuzzi, and now the price for the Bruins to retain him has been revealed.

Sweeney might need to consider re-signing Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci, as well as RFAs Jeremy Swayman, Jakub Lauko, and Trent Frederic, depending on this season's outcomes. Additionally, decisions must be made about the following UFAs:

Tyler Bertuzzi, Dmitry Orlov, Garnet Hathaway, Connor Clifton, Nick Foligno, and Tomas Nosek.

What's a Reasonable Price for Bertuzzi to Stay with the Bruins?


IF the team wins it all this season, it wouldn't be shocking to see Bergeron, Krejci, and perhaps even Foligno retire on a high note.


Should that occur, the Bruins will need to determine who they want to keep, and Fluto Shinzawa from The Athletic has provided information on the potential cost to retain at least one of them in Boston:

Who Will Stay, and Who Will Leave?



Based on information from Bruins Cap Space, it is estimated that the Boston Bruins will have approximately $3 million in cap space during this off-season (as of now). Shinzawa identifies three players who might potentially leave the team:

''If a $5.5 million AAV catches Bertuzzi's attention, the Bruins would most likely have to move money. Grzelcyk and Forbort may be in play in this scenario as well. The Bruins may also have to consider the future of Hall, who is under contract through 2025 at $6 million annually. Hall, 31, has partial no-trade protection.''

Naturally, much will rely on how the remainder of the season plays out for the Bruins. However, anything less than a Stanley Cup victory would be unsatisfactory, especially when considering the upcoming season.
