USA TODAY Sports

The final tally: The B’s drafted two Swedes, a Slovakian who played in Sweden, two New Englanders, and a Canadian for a total haul of three left wings, two defensemen, and a center. Happy Canada day, eh?

  • UFA Nathan Horton will probably move on, which may have saved Tyler Seguin 's bacon. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • Peter Chiarelli had been taking offers on Seguin, and had called him out on his professionalism. [WEEI]
  • With the probable loss of Horton, attention has turned to the possibility of signing Vincent Lecavalier. [TheBostonGlobe]
