UFA Defensemen the Bruins Should Target

Since the Bruins failed to address their one glaring need of signing a capable defenseman at the start of free agency, they are left with limited options and signing an unrestricted free agent seems to be the way to go. Don Sweeney and Cam Neely must find a diamond-in-the-rough type of player in the remaining UFA group of defensemen now that big names Keith Yandle (6 […]

Bruins Sign Backes; Lose Contributors in Free Agency

Recently, the Boston Bruins made NHL headlines when they signed former Blues captain David Backes to a 5-year, $30 million contract. Backes, who had 21 goals and 45 points last season, joins a Bruins squad that recently absorbed the losses of Loui Eriksson (VAN), Dennis Seidenberg (UFA), and Chris Kelly (OTT). David Backes is 32 […]

Trouba is NOT the Savior the Bruins Need

  Don’t get me wrong, I would love to have Jacob Trouba on the Boston Bruins. He’s a promising young defenseman that instantly makes the B’s blueline more skilled. However, if the Bruins plan on using an offer sheet on the 22 year-old, forcing them to give up their next four first round picks plus pay him a […]

Bruins Draft: Good But Not Great

The Bruins went into the 2016 NHL draft with relatively high expectations. With the Celtics head-scratching draft the night before stealing much of the attention of casual Boston sports fans, the B’s entered the draft with uncertainty around who would be available for their first selection at 14, as well as the constant rumors that Don Sweeney […]

Seven Players Who Could Be Drafted By the Bruins

The Bruins hold two picks in this years 2016 NHL Draft, the 14th and 29th overall selections, and will be looking to add premier talent to a squad that doesn’t have much to brag about as of late. Much like last years draft, this class of eligible players is highlighted by multiple elite names at the top, including presumptive number […]

Bruins extend Kevan Miller to 4 Year extension.

The Boston Bruins have extended Defenseman, Kevan Millar, to a 4 year extension worth 10 million dollars.  This contract extension really doesn’t make any sense to me.  This guy is a player that they could of easily let go and saved the money for more of an impact player.  I think 4 years, 10 millions […]

Chris Kelly injured, out 6-8 months

In Tuesday night’s game against the Dallas Stars, Chris Kelly went down and suffered a freak injury that turned out to be a broken leg that will put Kelly out of game action for 6-8 months. Before his fall, Dallas Star Colton Sceviour made light contact with his stick to Kelly’s hip region, which was […]

Loui Eriksson Entering Contract Season

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, […]

Boston Bruins Trade Rumor: Dustin Byfuglien

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 […]

David Krejci: The Most Interesting Man on the Bruins

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 […]

Why the Bruins Should not go after Cody Franson

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 […]

Bruins sign Matt Irwin

On Friday, the Bruins announced that they signed defenseman Matt Irwin to a one year, $800,000 deal. The 27 year old d-man has played on the San Jose Sharks for the past three seasons, scoring a total of 50 points during that time. He scored 19 points last season.

Bruins Trade for Jimmy Hayes, Sign Matt Belesky

Over the last few days, many have wondered just what GM Don Sweeney has been trying to do. After sending Dougie Hamilton to Calgary and Milan Lucic to the Los Angeles Kings, then acquiring lifelong goon Zac Rinaldo from the Philadelphia Flyers for a 3rd round pick, Sweeney’s job at the helm so far looked […]

NHL Draft Day Dust has Settled, Now the Bruins Need a Winger

Friday was a crazy day for the Boston Bruins. Early in the day it was discovered that GM Don Sweeney had traded Dougie Hamilton to the Calgary Flames for three draft picks. “Dougie for three draft picks? You have got to be kidding me,” much of Boston and I thought when we heard of the […]
