Believe it or not, and with no disrespect to what’s been done to date, but Don Sweeney’s 2023 offseason will include greater decisions than letting Kai Wissmann return to Germany and re-signing third-string goaltender Brandon Bussi.
With a staggering number of free agents, and with almost no cap space, Sweeney & Co.’s headache has only just begun.
But time is ticking. The Bruins are mere days away from the 2023 NHL Draft, which will begin with the first round next Wednesday and wrap up with rounds two through seven the next day, and are a week away from the start of NHL free agency.
How the Bruins ice a competitive roster for 2023-24 is truly anybody’s guess (though we have a rough idea who and what the Bruins will have to move off their roster), but here’s where things stand with everybody in need of a new contract.
