BREAKING: Bruins eyeing down this superstar

Published July 20, 2023 at 2:29 PM

As the offseason approaches, the Boston Bruins find themselves once again grappling with uncertainty, with long-standing players Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci contemplating retirement as unrestricted free agents.

The potential departure of these veteran centers would leave a noticeable void in the Bruins' lineup, compelling the team to seek talent to fill these crucial positions.

Nevertheless, the Bruins harbor optimism. The addition of Mikael Backlund to their roster could fortify their center depth, ensuring a continued competitive edge.

Backlund's presence would complement the offensive prowess of stars such as Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak, guaranteeing consistent offensive output.

While the Bruins possess the necessary cap space to accommodate Backlund, their immediate focus lies in securing the future of restricted free agents Jeremy Swayman and Trent Frederic.

Once these priorities are addressed, Backlund's arrival could significantly bolster the team's stability amidst potential retirements.

The upcoming offseason is fraught with anticipation and important decisions for the Bruins.
