Despite just about everybody expecting them to drop off, the Boston Bruins continue to defy expectations as they currently lead the Atlantic Division in points. And with the National Hockey League Trade Deadline quickly approaching, they're now in a prime position to once again be buyers as they look to erase the painful memory of last year's stunning playoff exit in Round 1. 

But once again, both Bruins goaltenders in Linus Ullmark and Jeremy Swayman have found their names pop up in trade rumors just as they did during the offseason. However, it doesn't look as though Bruins management is willing to pull the trigger on a move. 

"The #NHLBruins are not trading Linus Ullmark during this season. It is the strength of the team and they aren't going to piss it away especially at this point. Ullmark also has a 16 team no trade list."

Naturally, should the Bruins flame out early in the postseason yet again, the conversation could be much different in the weeks and months afterward. But for now, it appears as though the Bruins will be rolling forward with the tandem of Ullmark and Swayman. 

This season, Ullmark's third as a member of the Bruins since agreeing to a free-agent deal from the Buffalo Sabres in 2021, has racked up a record of 16-6-5 with a 2.72 goals against average, .914 save percentage and a single shutout. His numbers this year aren't quite what they were during Boston's record-setting campaign in 2022-23, but remain respectable. 

Additionally, Ullmark and Swayman have become known for their chemistry with one another as goaltenders, along with their iconic postgame celebration.

The NHL Trade Deadline is just over two weeks away now, as all deals must be completed by the afternoon of March 8.
