BREAKING: One Of The Bruins Goalies Might Be On The Trade Market

Published May 25, 2023 at 5:44 PM

The Boston Bruins claimed the Presidents Trophy, but fell victim to the infamous "Presidents Trophy curse," exiting the playoffs early. This setback may signal the gradual decline of the Bruins.

According to Frank Seravalli, Tyler Bertuzzi might depart, and Patrice Bergeron's retirement looms. Also, their aging star players will face expiring contracts soon.

Boston's fortunes continue to sour as speculation surrounds goaltender Linus Ullmark, despite his remarkable performance. Although a favorite for the Vezina Trophy, Ullmark's potential trade stems from three reasons.

Firstly, they must sign Jeremy Swayman. Swayman excelled as Ullmark's backup and could easily have the starting role, warranting a significant raise.

Secondly, a rebuilding phase looms, with key players like Bergeron, set to retire soon, and Marchand, and Coyle on the verge of expiring contracts, trading Ullmark now could yield valuable draft picks, addressing their depleted stock.

Lastly, Boston's limited cap space, just under $5 million, necessitates freeing up room to pursue signings beyond Swayman.
