BREAKING: Bruins could acquire a big name through a blockbuster trade

JUL 20, 2023   |   BY HUNTER BOWMAN
The Boston Bruins are heading into another offseason filled with uncertainty, as stalwart players Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci are once again UFAs and contemplating retirement.

If these veteran centers decide to hang up their skates, it will leave a significant void in the team's lineup, prompting the Bruins to search for talent to fill the crucial center position.

However, the Bruins are not without hope. By potentially adding Mikael Backlund to their roster, they can bolster their center depth and maintain competitiveness.

This move would complement the offensive prowess of stars like Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak, ensuring consistent offensive output.

While the Bruins have cap space to accommodate Backlund, they must first prioritize locking in RFAs Jeremy Swayman and Trent Frederic.

Once that's settled, Backlund could become a valuable addition to the team, providing stability amidst possible retirements.
