The 2022 trade deadline is officially one week away and the Bruins remain a team with more than a few needs.
Fortunately for them, Bruins general manager Don Sweeney is no stranger to deadline deals. In fact, the trade deadline has proved to be Sweeney’s busiest time of year on the job, with 13 different trades made on or around the trade deadline (over six deadlines in all) since Sweeney took over for Peter Chiarelli in 2015.
Sweeney’s moves have ranged from depth moves to home run swings, and there’s a legit case to be made that the Bruins need both ahead of this year’s deadline. From a potentially glaring second-line hole to a freakishly-thin depth chart on the right side of their defense, Sweeney’s deadline resume should probably featured at least two deals by this time week.
But what does his deadline history tell us about what’s ahead of the Bruins?
