Bruins Have some Free Agent To Make A decision On
Currently the Boston Bruins have a boat load of players who are free agents in 2017. This off-season they will need to pick who to keep and who to let go. It is not going to be an easy decision as some of the players are veteran guys. The B’s like their veteran’s but if they want to make room for the youth then they will have to let some of them go.
Now I have no idea what Don Sweeney is thinking, but If I were him this is who I would try to resign. I am also not going to bother with the money.
Now the Bruins have already been in talks with Pastrnak and it sounds like it is going in the right direction. He is a must, no questions asked. A few other guys I would like to see are Tim Schaller and Zane McIntyre.
Then I would entertain the idea of resigning Drew Stafford if they can not come to terms with any of the guys above. Another possibility is Dominic Moore who is a great fourth line guy to have on the team.
Tommy Cross who is currently the captain down in Providence and is a great guy to have that you can call up. Also Chris Casto and Alex Grant are other Providence players who would not be bad to keep. Colton Hargrove who had a pretty impressive playoff this season is another potential resign at the AHL level for Sweeney.
Liles, is a good defensemen but the Boston Bruins need the space to make room for the young kids.
