Tomorrow is training camp! Like, real actual training camp, with guys who have NHL contracts and everything! The summer is over! Okay, not quite, but it's so so close! Brad Marchand is signed, mostly everyone is back in Boston and the rookies who are sticking around for main camp are relocating to downtown...everything is in place to start the Bruins' second Stanley Cup march in a row. Awesome.

After the jump, the first photos of Michael Ryder in Dallas, and a new social media policy for the NHL?

Bruins News
  • A contract for Brad Marchand! Finally! [Globe]
  • If you like cheering for the underdog, the long shot, the kid who is supposed to have no chance any more, look no further than the Bruins' own Zach McKelvie, the 26-year-old rookie who hasn't played a full game since 2009. [AHA]
  • The Bruins could totally repeat as Cup Champs, you guys. Even Toronto writers think so. [Sun]
  • A final recap and rookie analysis from Kirk Luedeke. [Hockey Journal]
  • Benny-Poo is looking to make a good first impression at Bruins camp. Sounds a lot like what Steve Begin said upon arriving at Bruins camp two years ago, and everyone ended up loving or at least tolerating him, so. [Globe]
  • Tim Thomas is going to be in a Discover card commercial. [Herald]
  • Marc Savard will be on the Stanley Cup, but will Steven Kampfer or Shane Hnidy? [WEEI]

  • The two major RFAs still unsigned are Luke Schenn and Drew Doughty. What's the holdup, fellas? [NHL]
  • Steve Moore is finally taking Todd Bertuzzi to court. Unbelievable. Almost as unbelievable as the fact that Todd Bertuzzi is still playing, but that's a bone to pick for another day. [Globe and Mail]
  • Martin Brodeur might be done with the Devils after this season - whether that means retirement or another team, no one is certain. [NY Post]
  • The NHL has finally implemented a social media policy, and is the last of the four major American sports leagues to do so. [CBC]
