The Boston Bruins were relatively quiet during free agency weekend.
The Bruins have $13million in cap space with restricted free agents David Pastrnak and Ryan Spooner needing new contracts.
It's not a whole lot of wiggle room, however the Bruins could have made an offer, and according to Bruins general manager Don Sweeney, they did , and more than one.
“We made offers to players that have signed elsewhere, again for different reasons,” Sweeney said according to CBS Boston “It’s entirely up to the player themselves, whether the term wasn’t right, whether the dollars weren’t right or whether the location wasn’t right. There was nothing … off the top off of my head that would’ve scared us off of a particular player. We’ve got some long-term projections and some short-term ones that we’ve done a lot of work on.”
While they might have struck out on whoever they made offers too, there's still one guy out there the Bruins might be interested in.
According to Ty Anderson of WEEI, the Bruins are still in on Drew Stafford, a deal could be made, but Stafford will have to be patient as the focus right now is on the Bruins two restricted free agents.
Bruins remain in talks with Stafford's group, but they're going to be patient with free agency as a whole. Attention shifts to RFAs.— Ty Anderson (@_TyAnderson) July 1, 2017
