Best Available Free Agents Left That THe Bruins Should Target

With NHL training camps just around the corner. There are still some quality free agents available that could be an attractive bargain that the Bruins Should target. In this article, we’ll  three areas that the Bruins need to shore up on before tha start of the 2018/19 hockey season.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Playoff Aspirations;                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         For the first time in three years the Bruins qualified for the 2017/18 playoffs. With a nice mixture of youth and veterans, General Manager has the Bruins going in the right direction. Despite a first_ round exit at the hands of the Ottawa  Senators postseason has returned to Causeway Street.                                                                                                                                                                                                            Improved Defense;                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Boston has a nice group of veteran defenseman and youth too work with. Ageless wonder Zdeno Chara continues to pile up the minutes.  Injury prone Adam McQuaid is still productive when healthy. Youngsters Charlie McAvoy and Brandon Carlo bring energy with every shift.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Re-sign Pastrnak;                                                                                                                             The Bruins are coming off a very quiet offseason.  First and foremost the team needs to re-sign forward David Pastrnak. Pastrnak a third _yeaplayer has put up _put up big numbers in his three short years. If the Bruins hope to go deep in the playoffs then re-signing Pastrnak would send a positive message.                                                                                                                                                                                             Available Free Agents;                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   With the big name free agents already committed to other teams, there are still some quality free agents available.  One name that would be a good fit in Boston , is  Roman Polak. The 31 -year old defenseman  Polak would provide depth for the defense.  Two more names that could help the  Bruins would be Sabres blueliner, Cody Franson. Franson a thirty_seven year _old veteran would be a character player for a team on the rise.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Lastly, first_year coach Bruce Cassidy needs to practice patience. This is a young team seeking an identity.  With a  veteran core group and young  players this is a team to take seriously.  If Cassidy can keep goalies Tuukka Rask and Anton Khudobin fresh then the Bruins could make things interesting.  Other than Pastrnak spending money on big name free agents has never been the Bruins style.                                                                                        ,                                                                       ,
