They’ve known for sometime they’d be in this situation – coming into the new year, no cap space and the need to set yourself up for trade deadline day. And let’s not forget the massive bonus overage penaltyContinue reading “Are the Bruins Shopping for Cap Space?”

Bruins Inch Closer to a Healthy Roster

If you had told me at the start of the season that the Boston Bruins would be 8-1 through the first nine games of the season, I would have gladly taken that while telling you that “you are off your rocker.” Hockey prognosticators were telling us that if they could remain slightly above hockey .500Continue reading “Bruins Inch Closer to a Healthy Roster”

WEDNESDAY MAILBAG NOVEMBER 10 2022

Randy via email asks: My question relates to the B’s defence. My concern is lack of physicality other than Charlie. Nice to see Brandon step up with some solid hits last game. Teams are not intimidated in our zone. Reilly and especially Grzelcyk really worry me. Not so much in regular season but come playoffContinue reading “WEDNESDAY MAILBAG NOVEMBER 10 2022”
