Bruins’ Bjork Takes Long Way to 100 Games

Anders Bjork played his 100th game in a Boston Bruins uniform on Feb. 12. Granted, 100 games does not seem like that many, especially for a player who has been in the league for three seasons. However, this particular player’s road to the milestone was a rough one. In fact, there must have been more than a few times over the past three years when the rising star wondered if he’d ever hit that mark. Bjork has always shown plenty of talent and the potential to be a top-six winger. He boasts spe...

Bruins Need to Go All-In at Trade Deadline

It’s that time of year. With the NHL trade deadline days away, teams are ready to go shopping. Buyers want to make their team better for what they hope is a long run in the Stanley Cup playoffs and sellers are looking to add pieces for the future while parting ways with players who have value. Last season at the deadline, Boston Bruins general manager Don Sweeney picked up Charlie Coyle from the Minnesota Wild and Marcus Johansson from the New Jersey Devils. Both players helped anchor the Bru...

10 Strategies for Recharging on the Spot

While it would be nice to have an entire day to recharge, it’s not necessary. And if you wait until you have a full day off (from work or parenting or any other countless responsibilities you have), you’ll likely be incredibly exhausted—physically, mentally, and emotionally. The good news is that there are plenty of ways to recharge on the spot, whether you’re responding to emails at your desk, sitting on the subway, or dealing with a tantruming toddler (yes, really). Below, you’ll find an ass...

Bruins Signing Lauzon Impacts Long-Term Roster Decisions

The Boston Bruins have signed defender Jeremy Lauzon to a two-year contract extension worth $1.7 million. This deal carries an annual cap hit of $850,000 and will keep him with the team through the 2022-23 season. For the Bruins, this deal makes a lot of sense. On the surface, it makes sense to lock up a 22-year-old defender who was scheduled to be a restricted free agent in the offseason. It makes even more sense to do so when that 22-year-old has played as well as Lauzon has both at the ...

Bruins Have the Keys for Another Deep Run

Chris Kreider. Tyler Toffoli. Kyle Palmieri. Josh Anderson. Ilya Kovalchuk. Joe Thornton. Ondrej Kase. Brenden Dillon. Those are but a handful of names being thrown around as potential trade targets for the Boston Bruins less than two weeks before the Feb. 24 trade deadline. It’s that crazy time of the “silly season” when fans and members of the media desperately try to imagine how every player rumored to be on the trading block may fit on their particular team. Even if a rather substantia...

Bruins Have Interest in Thornton and Kovalchuk

As the Feb. 24 NHL trade deadline draws closer each day, more and more names are being talked about in trades to teams that are buyers in the trade market. Two of the bigger names being floated around are Chris Kreider of the New York Rangers and Tyler Toffoli of the Los Angeles Kings. While the Boston Bruins have interest in both of those players to upgrade their top-six forwards for another Stanley Cup playoff run, below is two other trade options that would not require a major return. ...

The Boston Bruins Could Use Chris Kreider

from Matt Porter of the Boston Globe, The Bruins need a mid-aged, top-six winger such as Kreider, even if it means shipping out their first-round pick, something Sweeney said he regretted doing in 2018 when he and Rangers GM Jeff Gorton struck a deal for Rick Nash. He shouldn’t be afraid to include a young roster player, since that will be part of the ask. As good as Jake DeBrusk (23), Danton Heinen (24), or Anders Bjork (23) could be, Kreider (28) offers a mix of maturity, physicalit...

Boston Bruins and David Backes in Limbo

When David Backes signed a five-year, $30 million dollar deal with the Boston Bruins in 2016, many people were left scratching their heads. At the time, the 32-year-old former St. Louis Blues captain was coming off his lowest goal-scoring season since 2009-10 but was impressive in the playoffs the season before. More important to the Bruins, however, were two other characteristics: Backes’ physicality and his leadership. Unfortunately, the former is one of the reasons that the Bruins have fou...

Kreider & Toffoli on Bruins Radar

Last season, Boston Bruins general manager Don Sweeney pulled off two trades that ended up helping his team reach the Stanley Cup Final. Landing forwards Charlie Coyle from the Minnesota Wild and Marcus Johansson from the New Jersey Devils provided depth for the Black and Gold. Sweeney will be active up until the Feb. 24 deadline looking for a piece or two to add to the current roster. One place he would like to upgrade the Bruins is a wing for the second line. Two targets that are on his rad...

4 Bruins’ Storylines to Keep an Eye On

With the All-Star Game in the books for another year, the NHL will begin the march to April and the Stanley Cup Playoffs. On Monday, the league resumes the regular season schedule.

If they are to do so, keep an eye on four storylines as they return to the ice Jan. 31 at the Winnipeg Jets. 1. Get Healthy Injuries have been a factor for the Bruins...

Bruins Need Attitude Adjustment, Not Rental Player

With the National Hockey League’s trade deadline officially less than one month away, fans of every team are starting to pay close attention to who may be on the market and who might best fit their team’s current needs. Bruins’ fans are no exception, of course. However, more than halfway through the 2019-20 season, it is becoming increasingly clear that what the Bruins need is a different mentality among its existing personnel, not a rental savior from another club. This team is largely uncha...

Bruins Waiving Backes Was a Tough but Correct Decision

The professional sports world is an unbiased and often cruel place that never stops moving forward. This is a tough pill for many players and fans to swallow. One day, an athlete can be among the best players in their respective league and the next they can be phased out as if none of their past contributions meant a thing. It’s rarely ever so cut-and-dry and there are often a lot of difficult conversations to be had following a lot of deliberation and decision-making behind the scenes....

Sweeney Sees Draft Success With DeBrusk, McAvoy & Carlo

On May 20, 2015, Don Sweeney was hired as general manager of the Boston Bruins. Sweeney replaced Peter Chiarelli who was fired and he only had a month to get ready for his first National Hockey League Entry Draft. In that draft, Sweeney and the Bruins had three straight first-round picks at Nos. 13, 14 and 15. In his tenure as Bruins GM, Chiarelli missed on more of his draft choices than he hit on. In five years, Sweeney has hit some home runs on his draft choices and missed one a few as well...

Bruins’ Bjork Cracks Top Six

Anders Bjork belongs in the NHL, and in Tuesday night’s win over the Nashville Predators, he finally got a chance to show what he can do as a top-six forward. It’s not hard to understand why the Boston Bruins wanted to take it slow with the 23-year-old winger. He was eased back into regular action after the talented forward missed the better part of the last two seasons recovering from shoulder surgeries. Finally healthy, Bjork impressed in the preseason, but was sent down to the team’s Am...

Bruins’ Halak Showing His Worth as Backup Goalie

Tuukka Rask signed his current eight-year, $56 million contract with the Boston Bruins on July 10, 2013. Rask has proved to be worth the investment that then-general manager (GM) Peter Chiarelli made with two trips to the Stanley Cup Final since inking the deal.  After Chiarelli was fired in April 2015, the Bruins hired former defenseman Don Sweeney as general manager. Over the years, Sweeney has had some good and bad signings, but one of the best signings to date by the five-year GM happened...

Reviewing the Bruins’ 2015 Draft

It’s rare that a team can get three first-round draft picks, but to get them consecutively is even rarer. That is what Boston Bruins general manager Don Sweeney had in 2015. He used those picks to select two forwards and a defenseman, and one of those picks has already paid off. That year, Sweeney had 10 picks total, the most in one draft by any team since the draft went from nine rounds to seven rounds in 2005. While Sweeney hit it big with one first-round pick, he looks to have hit it bigge...
