Deadline

Created by: bruinsdude77
Initial Creation Date: Sep. 28, 2021
Published: Sep. 28, 2021
Team: 2021-22 Boston Bruins
Team Explanation
Obviously, this is all speculative as injuries can alter both cap space and trade needs. However, if this lineup stays the same then the Bruins will have considerable space to make moves at the deadline. Existing contracts will have been tolled by 80% and new contracts will be pro-rated to 20%. Bringing back Rask is a guarantee and with the Czech Extraliga regular season ending before the deadline, there is a chance that Krejci comes back as well. I can only sign the two at the minimum $750K, which would be pro-rated from $3.75MM. Both will sign for far less than that. Right now, I think the only other need would be a sturdy RHD. My favorite trade option among impending UFA's is Josh Manson, whose $4.1MM hit will be down to $820K (Again, I can only reduce it to $2.05MM via retention, but it will be even less). To accommodate that cap, Rask and Krejci would have to come in at a combined pro-rated $819K, which is $4MM full-year. $2MM apiece for 20% of the regular season and the postseason is more than reasonable for Rask and Krejci. In fact, I would expect it to be even lower. And just like that everyone fits. The Bruins can also add all three to the roster on deadline (assuming no injuries) by sending down Swayman and putting Moore and Wagner on waivers. No one is likely to bite on either, especially if they are benchwarmers all season. Paper demotion for those three can then be used down the stretch to manage cap expenses as well. There you have it - a cap compliant, super deep lineup for a Cup run.

I think the need for a top four LD far outweighs the need for a RD.

I think Krejci coming back is a huge long shot, but we can hope.

Krejci needs to clear waivers if he wants to come back, its very unlikely the rival teams will let that slide, especially if they can get Krejci for league minimum with what he brings to the table. That's if he wants to even come back in the first place, which is not looking ideal.

Pretty much the first time I agree with CmcAvoy71. We don’t need an RD.

I don’t see the logic in bringing back Rask. If Ullmark and Swayman suck, we won’t be in a playoff position so what’s the point? If they play like they should, it won’t be goaltending we need to upgrade.

The need for a top 4 LD is there but you are looking at your 3 left defensemen for the next three years. That's what happens when your GM gets outmaneuvered heading into free agency and then panics. Reilly, Forbort, Zboril, Moore and Vaak. Those are all courtesy of DS.

Oh, i agree. Sweeney stinks.

RD is a position of zero need though.
