Bruins Training Camp Notes: David Pastrnak Leaves Ice Early After Taking Hit

Reilly Smith, Torey Krug Expected To Hold Out

I am going to file this news in the “no ******* folder. Word coming out of Boston is that both Smith and Krug are going to hold out because the Bruins can’t haven’t signed them to new contracts. If you took a look at the Bruins salary cap, you’d notice that they are currently over the cap by $809k which means the two players couldn’t even accept their qualifying offers...

All Aboard The David Pastrnak Hype Train. Toot Toot!

Spoiler alert: I think the Bruins have some really, really good writers covering the team. Yes, there are a few bobos out there who think everything is awesome all the time, but there’s a good number of those covering the team who do a fantastic job. That said, most people who are given media credentials and cover the team also rarely go out of their way to say something bad out...

Oilers, Bruins discussed Johnny Boychuk trade over the summer

One of the summer’s most persistent rumours was the idea of a trade between Edmonton and Boston that would see native son Johnny Boychuk join the Oilers in time for the 2014-15 season. It was a deal that in theory made sense for both sides, as Boston could free up the dollars it needs to clear to become compliant with the salary cap, Edmonton could acquire a quality defenceman...

Boston Bruins Training Camp Notes

Bruins Extend David Krejci Jared Wickerham / Getty Images It was probably a good idea to do it now as opposed to waiting until next summer. The Bruins extended top two center David Krejci to a shiny new six year deal with a $7.25M cap hit. The Bruins likely got Krejci cheaper than they would have if they’d waited until after the season, where Krejci could easily have fetched a...

Peter Chiarelli and Salary Cap Mismanagement

“I can’t sign everybody” This is the hill Peter Chiarelli is destined to die on as the Bruins start to gear up for training camp. It is true – you can’t sign everybody anymore. The NHL put a salary cap in place so Jeremy Jacobs would ******* sign someone teams couldn’t spend millions upon billions upon trillions of dollars to create NHL super teams. It was put to give...

NHL rumor: Boston Bruins to trade a defenseman

There was some speculation last week about just who might be the odd man out in the jumbled Boston Bruins salary cap situation. Over at Two Pad Stack, I speculated that maybe Brad Marchand and his $4.5 million salary could be on the move after what was considered a sub-par season. Coupled with how tight things are in regards to the purse strings in Boston and it certainly seemed...
