Now that the offseason is full force in the NHL, it is time to look towards Free Agency. On July 1st, the Boston Bruins have an opportunity to add to a roster that is fresh off a Stanley Cup Finals appearance. Now, let’s take a look at five serious options for the Bruins considering their financial situation.

Currently, the Boston Bruins sit with $12.0 million under the cap to spend this free agency. With a solid amount there, Bruins fans eyes may light up at the possibility of even a discussion with the likes of Artemi Panarin or Matt Duchene but we know this won’t be happening.

With Brandon Carlo and Charlie McAvoy both sitting as Restricted Free Agents, they are going to take up a solid chunk of that $12.0 million in cap space. Danton Heinen, Marcus Johansson, and Noel Acciari are all on the market as free agents in their own right.

Following Johansson’s performance in the playoffs, it will be difficult to sign him back. Heinen and Acciari are believable to return but of course things change so we will see. No matter the situation, the Bruins are going to need to add this offseason in hopes of getting back to the Stanley Cup Finals.

There is plenty of talent in this year’s Free Agency, include talent that are around the Boston Bruins price tag. From former all-stars to young, hungry players that would make an instant impact with the signing, Free Agency for the Bruins could be incredibly interesting.
