Report: Boston Bruins Received Trade Offer for Linus Ullmark

Turns out Boston Bruins general manager Don Sweeney had some serious pondering to do this past offseason as it's being reported the Bruins received a 'fair' trade offer for Vezina award winner Linus Ullmark. 

According to reports from Ty Anderson of The Sports Hub, the Bruins received an offer during the summer that was 'fair market value'. Boston's salary cap situation likely hindered any advancement in talks, and there's also Ullmark's no-trade clause to consider. The netminder holds a 16-team no-trade list and has some say in the matter.

As per Anderson:

My understanding — and this is through some backchannel rumblings and conversations, so take it with a grain of salt, of course — is that there was one team out there who had interest in giving Sweeney and the Bruins what would you consider a fair, market value return for Ullmark.

Some teams who were after goaltending help this past summer include the New Jersey Devils, Buffalo Sabres, Ottawa Senators, Los Angeles Kings and Philadelphia Flyers. 

Ullmark is coming off a sensational 2022-23 season where he posted a 40-6-1 record to go along with a 1.89 goals-against average and a .938 save percentage. It's going to be hard to top a season like this, especially with all the major changes that went down in Boston. 

As far as a trade goes, don't expect to see Ullmark moved any time soon.
