Boston Bruins Rumor: Team Hasn’t Asked Players To Waive NMC

Boston Bruins Rumor: Team Hasn’t Asked Their Players To Waive Their Non-Movement Clauses Ahead Of The Monday Deadline To Do So

The Boston Bruins are apparently not asking their players to waive their non-movement clauses (NMC) ahead of Mondays 5 p.m. deadline.

According to the Boston Globes Fluto Shinzawa the Bruins have not asked any of their players to waive this NMC’s. Shinzawa is reporting this according to his source which happens to be Boston Bruins GM Don Sweeney.

The Bruins have five players who have a NMC in their contracts, David Krejci, Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, David Backes, and Captain Zdeno Chara. If this report holds up this means these five players will be part of the 11 players the Boston Bruins will protect from the Las Vegas Golden Knights in the upcoming NHL Expansion draft. This also solidifies the notion the team will be going with the 7-3-1 format in their protection scheme.

The 7-3-1 format is 7 forwards-3 defenseman- one goalie. The other way to attack the protection is the 8-1 method which is 8 skaters and one goaltender. With the Bruins following the first format they have three forwards, two defenseman, and one goalie to protect

Projected Boston Bruins Protected Players:

  1. David Backes
  2. Brad Marchand
  3. Patrice Bergeron
  4. David Krejci

  7. undecided
