Are the Bruins eyeing Elias Lindholm and Noah Hanifin? Get the inside scoop on Boston's potential offseason targets and cap situation.

The Boston Bruins, always a threat to make big moves, are poised to be major players in the offseason market.

GM Don Sweeney has skillfully positioned the team with an enviable $21.7 million in projected cap space and as many as eight roster slots potentially opening up.

Bruins Cap Flexibility Sets Stage for Major Offseason Moves

The NHL rumor mill is abuzz with speculation that the Bruins will go big game hunting, with Vancouver Canucks center Elias Lindholm and Vegas Golden Knights defenseman Noah Hanifin as the prime targets. Both players were connected to Boston in trade rumors earlier this season.

Adding an elite two-way player like Lindholm would bolster an already potent Bruins offense, while Hanifin would solidify a defense corps that could use another top-pairing talent.

Of course, acquiring these stars won’t be cheap, and the Bruins might need to move out salary to make it work. Goaltender Linus Ullmark, with one year remaining on his $5 million AAV contract, could be a trade candidate to free up further cap space.

Sweeney has proven his ability to make bold moves. Expect fireworks when the NHL free agency period opens.
