What Lies Ahead in a Potentially Franchise-Altering Offseason for the Bruins?

Published May 2, 2023 at 12:00

This summer, the Boston Bruins face some big decisions regarding the future of a few franchise cornerstones, even more so than they did last year.

The Bruins' offseason plans could go in various directions, but according to Conor Ryan of Boston.com, General Manager Don Sweeney is primarily focusing on an "effective retool" rather than a "lengthy rebuild."

However, for this plan to work, Ryan believes that the Bruins will need at least one, if not both, of Patrice Bergeron or David Krejci to return:

'' for that to happen, the Bruins likely need at least one (if not both) of Bergeron or Krejci back in the fold.''

‘'Of course, the feasibility of that scenario playing out once again seems slim.‘'

Is it Time for Change in Boston?

With the odds of the veteran duo returning for the 2022-23 season looking slim, it seems even more unlikely now.

After Boston's record-breaking season came to an end, Bergeron and Krejci might be left with a bitter taste.

If neither player returns, the Bruins would have to rely on Pavel Zacha and Charlie Coyle as their top two centers.

According to Bruins Cap Space on Twitter, Sweeney will have just over $4 million in cap space this summer. See the image below for details:
