Bruins return Lauko to Providence; Set to Activate DeBrusk

On Friday, the Boston Bruins announced that Jakub Lauko has been returned to the Providence Bruins setting the stage to activate Jake DeBrusk from Long Term Injury Reserve. Some may view the return of DeBrusk as a trade deadline acquisition with the March 3 deadline about 2 weeks away. The Bruins haven’t been as successfulContinue reading “Bruins return Lauko to Providence; Set to Activate DeBrusk”

As Trade Deadline Approaches, Who Are the Boston Bruins Potential Trade Pieces

Trade deadline day is a little over three weeks away, the Bruins are in the midst of their bye-week and the phone lines are busy around the league. As in just about every other year, the Bruins are always linked to multiple players, even when it doesn’t make sense whatsoever. But hey, it’s that timeContinue reading “As Trade Deadline Approaches, Who Are the Boston Bruins Potential Trade Pieces”

DeBrusk to Miss Four Weeks: Bruins Utilize LTIR

The Boston Bruins announced that Winter Classic Hero and first line right wing Jake DeBrusk could miss 4 weeks.

They Said the Bruins Start Was Not Sustainable

Allow me to back track a bit because the title is not entirely fitting. It has more to do with some (a lot) of the negativity towards the Bruins 16-2-0 start and the next 18 games. So, let’s head back to the beginning. We all know the story, or we should by now. It wasContinue reading “They Said the Bruins Start Was Not Sustainable”

Are the Bruins Shopping for Cap Space?

That’s the million-dollar question and the easy answer is, yes. And They have been since the offseason. 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?”

Wednesday Mailbag November 16, 2022

So many questions this week and plenty of duplicates. I hope I didn’t leave any out. Let’s get right to them: @dangermike via Twitter asks: Hey Dom- on one of your upcoming Monday prospect rundowns can you talk a little bit about typical journeys for these players? Using Brett Harrison for example- if he showsContinue reading “Wednesday Mailbag November 16, 2022”

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”
