Are The Bruins A Good Bet To Win The 2020 Stanley Cup?Cat:未分類
It’s very probable that Sweeney will need to make a transaction to adapt new contracts to the budding celebrity McAvoy and the young stay at home defenseman Carlo, and the question now is will it be a move that doesn’t radically alter the two cores or will he have to move a key cog in their lineup?
Sweeney was feverishly trying to maneuver veteran fourth line forward David Backes and also the 2 years with a $6 million cap hit per year left on his contract. The major issue right now isn’t that no team will take on such a contract but the asking price to do so is that the Bruins add a first-round choice to sweeten the blow. With 2020 anticipated to be among those greater drafts in recent memory, Sweeney – like most GM’s – is reluctant to associate with a first rounder.
So unless he can move the likes of defenseman Kevan Miller who is entering his walk year with a $2.5 million cap hit, or defenseman John Moore, who has four years in $2.7 million left, subsequently Sweeney will have to do bridge prices with McAvoy and Carlo or transfer a participant like Krejci, who has two years left at $7.2 million. The best way Sweeney finagles himself from this pickle is something to keep an eye on when debating whether or not to go big on the Bruins to win everything in 2019-20. Would the Boston Bruins be destined for another chance in the Stanley Cup? Will they win it this time?
For those that only follow me , I have been covering the Boston Bruins for 16 of the last 18 seasons. I recently coated their run to Game 7 of the 2019 Stanley Cup they lost to the St. Louis Blues. The Bruins are now +1000 to win this final game and eventually become Stanley Cup Champions for the second time in fourteen days. Are they worth a wager for you? At +1000, yes they are, but I am here to tell you the reason they are and why they may not pay off come next June.
The Bruins can win the 2020 Stanley Cup if general manager Don Sweeney is able to pull some salary cap magic. As of this moment, the Bruins have their veteran and childhood cores intact. Yes, they dropped forwards Marcus Johansson – who was enormous at the Stanley Cup playoffs for them – and Noel Acciari to unrestricted free agency, but also the veteran group of forwards Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci, in addition to goalie Tuukka Rask, stay intact. Sweeney was able to avoid arbitration with 24-year old restricted free agent forward Danton Heinen, signing him to a two-year deal worth $5.8 million. However, Sweeney now needs to lock his two key remaining RFA’s in defensemen Charlie McAvoy and Brandon Carlo and he has $8.1 million to achieve that.
