Loui Eriksson will be always be remembered as ‘the guy the Bruins got for Tyler Seguin’. When Eriksson first came to town, the expectations were high but the results did not match the expectations. Seguin went off to Dallas and scored the highest point total of his career, 84 points, which still stands today. Unfortunately, Eriksson’s 1st season in Black and Gold was abysmal.

In the 61 games he played in the ’13-’14 season, he scored only 37 points and even worse he only scored 10 goals. You read that right, 10. That total was very underwhelming considering he used to scored 63, 71, and 73 points in prior seasons for the Dallas Stars. Continue reading Loui Eriksson Entering Contract Season »

Entering his 3rd full season in the NHL, Torey Krug is looking to play a bigger role, possibly as an everyday top 4 defenseman on the Boston Bruins in the upcoming campaign.

“For me personally, I feel like I’m ready for that challenge. It’s up to the coaching staff as well, but right now I’m eyeing that spot, and until somebody tells me otherwise, I’m going to go take it in camp,” Krug told the Boston Globe recently.

The top 4 spot he is seeking was opened when the Bruins traded d-man Dougie Hamilton to the Calgary Flames earlier this summer. Continue reading Torey Krug Ready to take on a Bigger Role »

It is August and NHL news is quite thin. Sometimes this stall in news brings wacky trade rumors and/or speculation. There are some rumors out there that include the Bruins, the most recent being the Bruins being involved in talks with the Winnipeg Jets for big money defenseman, Dustin Byfuglien.

For Boston fans unfamiliar with Byfuglien, he really broke into the league during the 2007-2008 season, playing almost the full season and scoring 19 goals with the Chicago Blackhawks. He has stayed mostly consistent since then, with his best regular season performance being the 2013-2014 campaign scoring 20 goals and 56 points with the Jets. He also played a huge role in the 2010 Stanley Cup playoffs for the Blackhawks, helping them win the Stanley Cup tallying 16 points in 22 games.

Krejci

Maybe the most interesting thing going into the 2015-2016 NHL season is how David Krejci will perform. Krejci played only 47 games last season, missing 4 weeks due to a partial tear in his left MCL which he sustained in late February, missing a crucial part of the Bruins season.

Krejci ended the season with 31 points in the 47 games he played, his lowest point total since the 2007-2008 season. If it wasn’t for the MCL tear, Krejci was on pace to score around 60 points.

It would be ideal if Kreci could stay off the IR in 2015-2016 as he is one of the top scorers on the team, and is going to have some new linemates to work with since Milan Lucic was traded to the Los Angeles Kings in a cap-dumping move by the Bruins.

Don Sweeney is not done making moves yet.

“There are a couple free agents that we’re still having conversations with that we feel might improve our club. If the financial component works, we’re not going to stop having those conversations because it might be the right thing to do,” Sweeney said recently.

Since the Matt Beleskey and Jimmy Hayes signings, there have been rumors linking the Bruins to free agent defenseman, Cody Franson. At one point the Twitter world had rumors that the B’s had actually signed Franson to a deal. Those rumors turned out to be false though.

Franson is a veteran d-man, who played for the Toronto Maple Leafs at the beginning of last season and then was later traded to the Nashville Predators. He had a career season, scoring 36 points, with a +/- rating of -7. Continue reading Why the Bruins Should not go after Cody Franson »
