Boston Bruins Rumors: Two Untouchables in Trade Talks

The Boston Bruins are one of the best team's in the NHL and general manager Don Sweeney is going to try and add a couple of pieces to his team ahead of the March 3 trade deadline in order to give this roster the best chance to win the Stanley Cup. While trade talks continue, rival executives around the league have been asking for a certain two Bruins, but Sweeney has made it known they are untouchable.

The two players are forward Jake DeBrusk and goaltender Jeremy Swayman. DeBrusk has worked his way back from injury and continues to produce this season. He's scored 18 goals in 38 games so far in 2022-23, and has recorded 33 points. DeBrusk is signed through next season at $4 million against the cap.

Meanwhile Swayman continues to be one of the most reliable backups in the league, playing behind close friend Linus Ullmark. Swayman is 24, making just $950,000 against the cap this season and is a pending restricted free agent. He's posted a 2.21 goals-against average and a .918 save % through 23 appearances this season.

If the Bruins make a move, expect to see draft picks and prospects heading out of bean town with the likes of Mike Reilly and Craig Smith included to help even out the money.
