David Pastrnak is quite the hockey player. The Bruins forward, who just completed his eighth season in the NHL, has produced about a point per game since the start of his career (504 points in 510 games) and is the fifth-leading scorer in the Bettman League since 2016. -17 with his 215 goals.
He may play for a CH rival, but it’s hard not to be impressed when he plays with his enormous talent.
However, in recent weeks, we feel that there is some turbulence in the small world of the Bruins. In addition to the uncertain future of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and Charlie McAvoy will be sidelined for several months and Bruce Cassidy has just been fired.
In short, it puts Pastrnak in a strange situation and, according to Fluto Shinzawa, who covers the activities of the Bruins during the athleticcould even cause Pasta It can be changed in a few months.
If David Pastrnak doesn’t want to re-sign, trading the right wing will start the rebuild. https://t.co/L3jW8Koh4l

At 26, Pastrnak could be an important part of the Bruins’ core for a few years. However, his contract expires at the end of the 2022-23 season, and obviously the bond of trust between him and the team can be much more fragile than you think.
In fact, according to a source who spoke to Shinzawa, there would be “no chance” of Pastrnak signing a new contract in Boston if Don Sweeney kept his job as general manager. The Czech forward did not like that the team’s general manager did nothing to try to retain the services of Torey Krug and David Krejci, two of the best friends of Pasta Within the group
Are these rumors exaggerated? I do not know. But even for the Bruins, the idea of trading Pastrnak makes sense. in a very specific context: that of the beginning of reconstruction and the desire to leave the Czech Republic.
Right now, the Bruins are at a crossroads. Tuukka Rask has retired and Patrice Bergeron could join him in a few weeks. In addition, the absences of Marchand and McAvoy at the start of next year’s season as well as the change of coach could complicate the Bostonians’ task in 2022-23.
And since the Bruins’ prospect pool isn’t the richest, trading Pastrnak for big bucks (much like the Bruins did with Milan Lucic a few years ago) could be a good way to start the rebuild. And if Pastrnak has no intention of signing a new contract with the Bruins, the decision becomes even simpler: You can’t let him go without getting anything in return.
Certainly, the possibility of seeing Pastrnak sign a new contract in Boston exists (he will be able to do so starting July 13), but based on Shinzawa, it’s not necessarily a certainty. And if so, maybe the NHL’s next monster trade involves Pastrnak.

Clearly, Brad Marchand’s reputation has more to do with it, even among the hopes.
Of the 21 I spoke to last week, 20 named me the Bruins’ 63rd in the “who would definitely blow your mind” category.
