The Boston Bruins have officially announced their 2014 camp roster, which includes tryout invitees Simon Gagne and Ville Leino. Missing from that list however, are unsigned RFAs Torey Krug and Reilly Smith. Krug and Smith have both yet to sign a contract, and reports indicate that both are pretty far apart from what the Bruins are prepared to offer them.
The good news, however, is that both players are entry-level free agents, which means they cannot receive offers from any team but the Bruins. In Krug, the B’s have a mobile defenseman with very high offensive skill who can run the powerplay and chip in with some points. Smith was a revelation last season, garnering 51 points on Patrice Bergeron‘s line with his smart possession play and good positioning. Both will likely sign with the team, but it’s possible they could miss camp and even the pre-season.
