The Boston Bruins roster could change a good amount this offseason with some names moved out and some moved in, but who could be moved out? Players could be moved out for one of two main reasons, those being the betterment of the roster or cap space.
Jake Debrusk’s trade request earlier in the 2021-22 season makes Debrusk likely to be traded. Debrusk signed a two-year eight million dollar extension with the Boston Bruins on March 21st, 2022. Jake Debrusk scored 25 goals and 42 points in 77 games played with the Bruins in the 2021-22 season. If Debrusk still wishes to be traded he should gain a bit of interest from teams looking for some cheaper scoring help. A few teams who may have interest in Debrusk are Edmonton, Calgary, New Jersey, and Colorado.
Nick Foligno is coming off a season he’d probably rather forget. The 34-year-old only scored 2 goals and 13 points in 64 games played with the Bruins this offseason. Foligno signed a two-year 7.6 million dollar contract with the Bruins last season. If Foligno is moved it will be to clear cap space to be able to afford other players.
Mike Reilly was acquired by the Bruins at the 2021 NHL Trade Deadline. Reilly signed a three-year nine million dollar extension with the Bruins last offseason. Reilly scored four goals and 17 points in 70 games played last season with the Bruins. If Reilly is traded it will be the result of him being pushed out of the lineup after the Bruins acquired Hampus Lindholm at the 2022 trade deadline.
Matt Grezlyck is probably the least likely player on this list to be moved. He has proven to be reliable when needed, although some fans won’t agree with that. Grezlyck scored 4 goals and 24 points in 73 games last season. For much of the same reason as Mike Reilly, if Grezlyck is moved it won’t be as the result of play, it will be a result of being pushed out of the lineup.
