The Boston Bruins continue to have dialogue with their current leading scoring David Pastrnak on a new deal. But no contract extension appears close at this time.

Dialogue continues between Pastrnak camp and the B's. But my read is that there's still some sizeable gaps in position. This could be a grind of a negotiation like we saw with Forsberg/Preds, which went to the wire. In each case, player wants to stay put, but what's fair $$$..

Obviously that can change with one phone call, but that's the feel I get right now

TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun reports that there are still sizeable gaps in positions between the two sides. He adds Pastrnak wants to stay in Boston and wonders if a similar situation to what happened with Filip Forsberg will play out, when the Nashville Predators reached a deal to keep their star winger just ahead of unrestricted free agency.
The 26-year-old, is on fire so far this season with six goals and 15 points in eight games.
Pastrnak is coming off his second career 40-goal season and finished with 77 points in 72 games last season, adding three goals and six points in seven playoff games.
He signed his current six-year, $39.9 million contract in 2017 as a restricted free agent after topping the 30-goal mark for the first time. He has topped the 30-goal mark in every year since, with the exception of the pandemic-shortened 2020-21 campaign.
