Bruins Rumors: 3 Players Who Won't Be Traded from Boston in '23/'24

The Boston Bruins have surprised many this season as they haven't taken a step back in 2023-24 after losing both Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci to retirement. They've had a ton of players step up in major ways this season and are led by Linus Ullmark and Jeremy Swayman in net, the best goalie tandem in the league.

Expect to see the Bruins go after some big fish on the trade market including Calgary Flames Elias Lindholm and Noah Hanifin. The B's will have to move out some talent if they want to acquire some impact players for the playoff run, however, these three players are not expected to be moved before March 8th deadline:

Matthew Poitras

Currently with Team Canada of the World Juniors, Poitras has been the best young Bruin this season and is turning heads around the league. He's recorded 13 points in 27 games and is playing an encouraging 200-foot game in his rookie year. Expect big things from Poitras once he's back from the world juniors and look for him to have continued success during his first season in the national league.

Jeremy Swayman

The B's have received calls on Swayman as he's the younger of the two netminders and is a restricted free agent next season. The 25-year-old Swayman is the goalie of the future for Boston and will likely be signed to a long-term contract extension at some point either in season or early next summer. Swayman's one of the best goalies in the league with a 2.22 GAA and .928 Sv.% and isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

John Beecher

While he hasn't hit the ground running as much as Poitras, Beecher is starting to develop nicely in Boston and is likely someone they want to build around moving forward. The former first round pick hasn't played a ton while dressed this season but Boston has the ability to be patient and let Beecher get his feet wet this season to then play a bigger role moving forward once the likes of Jake DeBrusk and James van Riemsdyk have moved on.
