Brian Lawton - a longtime NHL player and current NHL Network analyst that also served as GM of the Tampa Lightning - dropped a bombshell tweet Monday evening, stating that he "would not be surprised" if the Bruins chose to trade Pastrnak.

"Not trading Pastrnak", Sweeney said in an email to the Boston Globe, via Puck Daddy's Justin Cuthbert.

Lawton's tweet was picked up by several hockey news outlets and sent more than a few Bruins fans into panic mode.

Agent J.P. Barry described negotiations as "very open", adding that both sides still had plenty of time left.

Pastrnak, a first-round pick in 2014, is coming off a season in which he totaled career highs in goals (34), assists (36) and points (70). Earlier this summer, the sides were said to be closing on a six-year deal similar in average annual value to Brad Marchand (eight years, $49 million), but that was before the likes of Connor McDavid and Evgeny Kuznetsov inflated the market for high-end young talent. "He loves it here. Again, I don't want to trade the player, but if someone wants to get stupid, why would you not take the call?"
