The salary cap limit that the Boston bruins are currently facing means that they will have to let some of these players go. The team has had to let valuable players like Jarome Ignila go.

This gap could be filled by signing free agent Reilly Smith, who scored 20 goals last season. Even though he didn’t match Ignila’s goal scoring feat, the team could get a boost from Krejci who has is eager to score more goals this season.
