Given his views, Jeremy Swayman may wish to leave Boston.
The Boston Bruins have long been one of the NHL’s greatest teams. Goaltending has played a role in their success over that time period. Tim Thomas won the Conn Smythe Trophy before Tuukka Rask took over full time.
Rask’s retirement, however, was a major question mark for them, as they were desperate to discover ways to continue forward with success.
Since then, Jeremy Swayman and Linus Ullmark have emerged as the NHL’s top goaltender combo. Individually, both may claim to be among the best 10 goaltenders in the league.
The fun aspect about this couple is how much they love each other. It actually feels like a team, with both guys eager to assist one another when it’s their turn to go. Going with this strategy requires complete collaboration and a dedication to winning.
The Boston Bruins have a very outstanding goalie in Jeremy Swayman.
However, there was some disagreement between the Bruins and Swayman throughout the offseason. After going through arbitration, he was signed to a one-year contract worth $3.475 million against the salary cap. This summer, he is an RFA once more.
On Sunday, we discovered that things may not go as neatly the next time around. It doesn’t sound like Swayman is pleased with management. He is committed to winning with his teammates and coach, but some comments bothered him.
Swayman was picked as an All-Star via public vote. It’s a vote, but he deserved to win with a 12-3-7 record, 2.49 goals against average, and.918 save percentage.
When discussing this selection, he mentioned his arbitration, stating that it was a nice feeling because of the things stated to him at the time.
These are some pretty crazy things for him to say. If he still feels that way by the time they start negotiating his next contract, things may get ugly. He is being open about his feelings.
If he became available right now, there would be a dozen teams calling on his services. The Bruins need to make him happy, lock him up, and watch him have an incredible career there in Boston.
Swayman will join David Pastrnak and head coach Jim Montgomery at the All-Star Game and it should be tons of fun watching them go.
The Bruins are a true Stanley Cup contender and they’d like to make what happened last year a long-lost memory by winning big this year. They need Swayman if they are going to do that.
