Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci are currently deciding on their futures and all reports say they are both leaning to retiring.


Bruins cap crunch



The Bruins currently have less than $5 million dollars of cap space with only 15 players on the roster making it difficult for the team to come back stronger next year.

With notable free agents like Tyler Bertuzzi and Dmitri Orlov needing new deals it looks like the Bruins will be taking a step back.

The Bruins are actively looking to free up space to try and work within the cap but it does not seem likely.
