The 2023 NHL trade deadline is rapidly approaching and if there’s one thing we’ve learned, it’s that Don Sweeney and the Bruins are pretty much in on everything one can be this time of year.
That certainly checks out given the Bruins’ status as both the best team in the National Hockey League and a team with ‘all in’ vibes in pursuit of one more Stanley Cup before Patrice Bergeron and/or David Krejci ride off into the sunset. They also have a top-two goal scorer in hockey currently without a contract for next season, and when that’s the case in February, you almost have no other choice than to live in the moment and hope for the best.
But while the Bruins are and have been linked to everything available this deadline, what they’re willing to give up remains a complete unknown. Sweeney has dropped hints that he’d be reluctant to strip away much from his NHL roster (it doesn’t take much to see why he feels that way), but that hasn’t stopped everybody from throwing out their ideas.
So let’s join the party and go over who and what should and shouldn’t be thrown out there this deadline, shall we?
(Spoiler: Like Sweeney, I’m not really keen on moving much of anything off this roster, and you’re not swaying me.)
