Jeremy Swayman shocked fans by declining to file for salary arbitration, raising concerns about his contract negotiations and the goaltending future of the Boston Bruins.

During summer trading season, the Boson Bruins have inched their way to a new, hopefully Cup-winning crew. As part of their building strategy, the team dealt out their goalie Linus Ullmark to the Ottawa Senators for Mark Kestalic, Joonas Korpisalo, and the 25th overall pick in the recent NHL draft.
"TRADE ALERT: The #Sens have acquired G Linus Ullmark from @NHLBruins in exchange for (Boston's original) '24 first-round draft pick (no. 25 overall), C Mark Kastelic and G Joonas Korpisalo. As part of the transaction, the #Sens will retain 25% of Korpisalo's remaining salary."

However, the team had not made a deal to extend their other leading goaltender Jeremy Swayman immediately. Bruins general manager Don Sweeney had mentioned in a press conference they had not stopped working on one, emphasizing it as their top priority.
"It's a priority for us. We're going to continue to find a negotiated landing spot."

However, both parties had yet to make a deal by today, the deadline for players to file for arbitration and get a third party to come up with an unbiased number. However, Swayman did not file and can receive offers from other teams as a restricted free agent.
"BREAKING: #NHLBruins goaltender Jeremy Swayman has NOT filed for salary arbitration, making him eligible to receive an offer sheet from another team. Not saying that's the plan, just that it is a possibility."

With no deal on the table and no plans for outside assistance, a giant question mark still hangs over the Boston Bruins. Hopefully, whatever spot they land will not force them to bite off more than they can chew.
