The Boston Bruins exited the Stanley Cup playoffs after losing to the Florida Panthers again for the second year in a row, and although they made it through to the second round of the playoffs this time around, much like last season, it is likely that there will be changes occurring with their on-ice personnel.

Goaltender Jeremy Swayman, who was absolutely stellar in net for the Bruins during this year's playoffs, is a restricted free agent this summer, and the Bruins would be crazy not to try to keep him. This likely means that his partner in the 1A/1B carousel, Linus Ullmark, is likely to be moved despite the remainder of his contract, which shows $5,000,000 owing with one year remaining. The main team that is believed to have shown the most interest in Ullmark is the Los Angeles Kings, which he had been rumoured to be moving onto previously; however, he vetoed the trade at last season's trade deadline. The Edmonton Oilers, the Toronto Maple Leafs, the New Jersey Devils, the Detroit Red Wings, and the San Jose Sharks are also believed to have shown interest. It is also important to remember that Ullmark currently has a sixteen-team NMC, and his contract includes a fifteen-team M-NTC for the 2024–2025 season.
Forward Jake DeBrusk is an unrestricted free agent this summer and will likely command an awful lot of attention from teams looking to bolster their lineup in a way that DeBrusk has done so throughout his career. DeBrusk was a dependable first-line left winger when asked to slot into that spot this season and would fill a need for the likes of the Los Angeles Kings, Edmonton Oilers, and Toronto Maple Leafs. DeBrusk, who could be counted on to be a physical top-line winger, is coming off a two-year, $8 million contract and is likely to get a pay raise after a short but eventful playoff run where he put up 11 points in thirteen games. The twenty-seven-year-old also had 40 points and 18 penalty minutes across 80 games during the regular season.
