Let’s Start off with a Little Background
Growing up in Maine is a privilege. As for me, I got the privilege of growing up here and attending college in the Bangor area. During that time my apartment was located in Orono, Maine right down the street from The University of Maine.
That being said, UMaine hockey is a tale-old tradition. That tradition lives not only in the students, but all hockey fans across the state. On top of that, the amazing performances of Jeremy Swayman generated even more U-Maine hockey fans.
I myself got to witness his outstanding 48 save victory against Providence College on March 6th of 2020. It was at that moment, I knew Jeremy Swayman was going to be one heck of a player in the NHL.
How Did We Get to This Point of Wanting to Unleash Jeremy Swayman?
No one knew Swayman would be thrown into the NHL Gauntlet as fast as he did. He was absolutely dominant for the Providence Bruins for his first few months. Swayman made an impression on the NHL Bruins in a big way.
This left the Bruins with no choice, they had to call up the kid. Given the circumstances at the time, it was the right choice. With a nagging back Injury to Tuuka Rask, a struggling Jaroslav Halak, and an unknown in Dan Vladar, there was no better time to see what you had in the young rookie.
Swayman impressed us immensely in his starts. His dominance triggered fans to go wild and claim him as the Bruins’s future, saying “This is the Sway”. The hype was real and for a good reason.
Why is it Time to Unleash Jeremy Swayman?
With the Bruins being bounced from the playoffs in the second round, by the Islanders, one of the big questions of the offseason is: Who is next in the goalie position?
Rask announced at his exit interview that he has played through a torn labrum and that he was going to need surgery. That puts his return between January and February of 2022. Three to four months after the start of the season.
Rask also stated that he doesn’t want to play for any other team except the Bruins. So, what does that leave? As an upcoming free agent this offseason, he will have to choose between retirement and returning to the Bruins for another season.
That being said, I do believe it is time to unleash the Sway. My reasoning? There is no better time to do it than at the start of next season.
Everything lines up perfectly. With Rask announcing his surgery, that gives the rookie netminder the entire offseason to prep to be the Bruins starting goalie. Slide Vladar or whoever behind him and BOOM, you are set. Then, if the team decides to bring back veteran Tuuka Rask, he will be ready to go come the beginning of 2022 as the rookie’s backup.
So yes, I am saying the Bruins need to bring back Rask, so don’t come at me with that crap that he is trash. Cause, I do not want to hear it.
Final Thoughts on Unleashing Jeremy Swayman
This kid is special and he has so much potential. He proved that this season by posting a 7-3 record, 2 shutouts, and a whopping .945 save percentage.
THE HYPE IS REAL! The Bruins have in fact found their next star goalie to replace Tuuka Rask.
Jeremy Swayman will be the starting goalie for the Boston Bruins this coming October when the puck drops on the 2022 season and it is going to be a lot of fun watching this kid get better by the day!
