Possible cap situation for the Bruins

If Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci don't return to the Boston Bruins next season, the team will need to find suitable replacements. The question arises: who will step up, and at what cost?

It wouldn't be surprising if goaltender Jeremy Swayman, seeks a more substantial contract but could potentially assist the team next season and accept an overpaid extension after that (e.g., a 4-year, $5 million per year extension).


Considering various cap scenarios, if the Bruins traded Matt Grzelcyk and Mike Reilly, then re-signed Bergeron and Krejci to a one-year deal, and convinced Swayman to agree to a one-year bridge deal, the team would have approximately $4 million remaining to acquire another forward and two defensemen.



This strategic maneuvering could provide the Bruins with the flexibility and resources needed to strengthen their roster for the upcoming season.
