Bruins Make Two Small Deals At NHL Trade Deadline

The Bruins did their wheeling and dealing prior to yesterday’s swap meet, acquiring the trio of Chris Kelly (from Ottawa), Rich Peverley (from Atlanta), and Tomas Kaberle (Toronto). Since their arrivals, the B’s haven’t lost a game, currently riding a season-high five-game win streak, as they hope to end their road trip Tuesday night with […]

NHL Trade Deadline is Complete: Bruins Fail Miserably

The NHL’s 3 p.m. trade deadline came and went Wednesday afternoon, and unfortunately for Bruins fans, news of a major trade that would bring the team the offensive firepower they have lacked all season wouldn’t be heard all day long. Instead, teams from the top to the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings wheeled and […]

Bruins-Oilers Trade: Marquardt for Wild

The Bruins made another minor deal on Wednesday night, acquiring minor league defenseman Cody Wild for minor league forward Matt Marquardt. The B’s had originally acquired Marquardt from Columbus for Jonathan Sigalet. A fifth round pick in the 2006 draft, Wild was a three-year star at Providence College. Playing in the ECHL, Wild tallied 14 […]

Bruins Come Out of Trade Freeze Lukewarm, Acquire Rights to Kampfer

On Tuesday, the Boston Bruins made their first trade since the Olympic trade freeze was lifted on Monday by trading a conditional fourth round pick in the 2010 or 2011 Entry Draft for the rights to defenseman Stephen Kampfer.

Three Steps To Get The Bruins Back Into The Playoffs

For the Boston Bruins, the current season has been a far cry from last season’s Eastern-Conference-winning effort and the expectations that accompanied such a feat. Winless at the TD Garden in 2010, the Bruins have lost eight in a row and ten of their last eleven, with that sole win coming in a shootout. The […]

Bruins Trade For Recchi, Montador

The Bruins made a couple moves at the trade deadline to give the squad a boost as the chase for the playoffs hits the home stretch. Boston acquired 41-year-old winger Mark Recchi from the Lightning and defensman Steve Montador from the Ducks in separate deals. Boston acquired Recchi and a 2010 second-round pick for defensman […]

NHL Trade Deadline: The Fallout

The Bruins stood pat in this trade deadline but the Marrian Hossa sweepstakes still took a surprising twist when the Pittsburgh Penguins made the best offer to land the high-impact forward… Noticeable trades: Atlanta traded forwards Marrian Hossa and Pascal Dupuis to Pittsburgh for prospect Angelo Esposito, forwards Colby Armstrong and Erik Christensen and a […]

Trade Deadline: Some Interesting Moves…

While the Bruins are quiet, the trade market opened a bit with some signings that will raise the ante regarding certain players.  - Dan Boyle was re-signed by Tampa Bay to a 6-year, $40 million contract which means that the price for D Brian Campbell (Buffalo Sabres), who failed to re-sign with his team, will increase a […]

Trade Deadline: All Quiet For the Bruins, So Far

With less than 24 hours to go, the Bruins remain quiet on the trade front. I wrote, a couple of days ago, that I want to see the Bruins sit tight on their roster and it seems that Peter Chiarelli will do just that. It’s a very good decision, in my opinion, since the team has shown lots of improvements this […]
