Bruins fans gonna fan... - Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

Goodbye, Merlot, hello Maroon.

The Bruins look to rework the formerly formidable fourth line.

  • Enjoy a quick retrospective of Shawn Thornton 's time as a Bruin in these 10 video clips. [NESN]
  • As Merlot gives way to Maroon, who is likely to slot into the vacated spot on the wing? [CausewayCrowd]
  • As for the Fourth Line changes, think of it as... remodeling! Just don't expect an identity overhaul. [MetroWestDailyNews]
  • You heard it here first: Cam Neely still sees a role for fighting. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • Friend of the Blog Bobby Robins may find a door opening for him. [ESPN] He still maintains his website, and continues to exhort us to all "be excellent." [BobbyRobins]
  • This one roster change may be their biggest offseason move, and demonstrates the Bruins continue to believe that their philosophy is generally sound. [WEEI]
  • Here's Thornton behind the scenes being himself during a Boston Bruins TV shoot. (Video, 3:11) [YouTube]
  • If we're going to wildly speculate, let's look at Johnny Boychuk. He has a modified no-trade, but is an Edmonton native. The Oilers or Jets may have their charms for him, if he is looking to sign one last multi-year contract. [EdmontonJournal]
  • Here are the key constraints and deadline dates for the Bruins' offseason player movements. [TauntonGazette]

  • Catch up on all the NHL teams' statuses on compliance buyouts here. Chris Kelly 's name comes up as someone who may be sacrificed to keep Jarome Iginla.  [CBSSports]
  • The Bruins are one of three of the best built teams in the NHL. The facts speak for themselves. The Avalanche can learn from this. [MileHighHockey]
  • Is Patrice Bergeron on the cover of EA NHL 15 by a landslide? [ObnoxiousBostonFan]
