Bruins Trade Hunwick for Cohen, Clear Cap Room for Savard

The Bruins have traded defensman Matt Hunwick to the Colorado Avalanche for former Boston University defenseman Colby Cohen in a salary dump. Why did they need to dump any salary? Well, with plans to activate Marc Savard in the works, GM Peter Chiarelli needed to trim some space to fit in their 33-year-old concussed center […]

Bruins Salvage Point From Improbable Comeback, But Fall 4-3 in Shootout

The highs and lows of this game were worlds apart, and in the end, the Kings finally finished off the Bruins 4-3 in a shootout, leaving the Bruins to settle for a single point. That isn’t too bad, considering the Kings led 3-0 at one point. The game started with obvious omens that it would […]

Colin Campbell Responds to Allegations, Puts Foot in Mouth

Recently, Colin Campbell has given several interviews regarding the fiasco he finds himself in.

NHL, Colin Campbell Biased Against Marc Savard

Colin Campbell, the NHL’s senior vice president of hockey operation and all-around disciplinarian, publicly called Marc Savard a “little fake artist.” Really, it was an e-mail conversation with former NHL director of officiating Stephen Walkom, but everything becomes public when you hit send.

Who Makes Up Your “Mt. Rushmore of Hatred?”

Hatred. We all have it, whether we admit it or not. As sports fans, we’re fueled by hatred. There wouldn’t be rivalries if it weren’t for hatred. We wouldn’t get so emotional after big games, win or lose, if it weren’t for hatred of the opponent. This week, two of the world’s most hated athletes […]

Savard May Not Return Soon From Post-Concussion Syndrome

After a report from ESPN.com said that center Marc Savard may miss the entire 2010-2011 season with post-concussion syndrome (PCS) symptoms, many worried (myself included) that where there’s smoke, there’s usually fire. In this case, a negative report about Savard’s health citing Bruins sources may have some validity to it. Fortunately, Savard plans to play […]

Marc Savard out, Tyler Seguin in?

Sometimes the best position is the one you are most comfortable in. Hopefully that will be the case for Bruins’ rookie Tyler Seguin.

Bruins Training Camp: What to Watch For, Part 2

On Wednesday, we showed the first four things to watch for as the Bruins open camp.

Bruins Training Camp: What to Watch For, Part 1

Is it too soon to talk about the Bruins yet, or is the sting of last spring’s playoff collapse still too painful to overcome? Personally, as tough as it may be to do, I say we turn the page to the next chapter: the 2010-11 NHL season. The B’s are off and running this month […]
