The Bruins Development Camp offers a glimpse at the Bruins' future.

USA TODAY Sports

<p><b>There will be some hard personnel decisions to make for the Bruins</b></p>

<ul>

<li> No controversy, just healthy competition between newcomer Chad Johnson and Providence Bruin Niklas Svedberg to be Tuukka Rask 's backup in goal. [<a href="http://prohockeytalk.nbcsports.com/2013/07/15/theres-competition-for-bruins-backup-goalie-gig/">ProHockeyTalk</a>]</li>

<li> Malcolm Subban 's skill has risen to the challenge of being in the spotlight in international competition, and he is moving beyond relying on his althleticism. [<a href="http://www.metrowestdailynews.com/sports/pros_and_colleges/x1592801216/Bruins-Subban-had-stops-and-saves-in-final-junior-season">MetroWestDailyNews</a>]</li>

<li> Anthony Camara plays with a gritty edginess that is very Boston Bruin, but needs to stay in control and not take bad penalties. [<a href="http://www.weei.com/sports/boston/hockey/bruins/dj-bean/2013/07/14/why-anthony-camara-remains-bruins-most-intriguing-pro">WEEI</a>]</li>

<li> Robbie O'Gara is developing both physically and mentally into the kind of confident contributor that the Bruins seek. [<a href="http://bostonherald.com/sports/bruins_nhl/boston_bruins/2013/07/bruins_bull_ish_on_robbie_o_gara">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> Peter Chiarelli will likely pass on Jaromir Jagr in favor of developing younger talent. [<a href="http://www.sportingnews.com/nhl/story/2013-07-14/jaromir-jagr-bruins-free-agent-return-ruled-out-penguins-peter-chiarelli">SportingNews</a>]</li>

<li> Expect some competition for spots on the Bruins' roster. Carl Soderberg will likely get another shot at the third line, and Dougie Hamilton, Torey Krug, and Matt Bartkowski will be in the defensive mix. [<a href="http://bostonherald.com/sports/bruins_nhl/boston_bruins/2013/07/bruins_competitive_juices_will_flow_in_fall">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> Short takes: Camp invitee Garnet Hathaway was glad to be assigned #68, and peddles lobster rolls in the off season. Trent Whitfield may return to the Bruins organization in an off-ice role.

<li> Another take on why Justin Bieber should have behaved differently in the Blackhawks' dressing room with the Stanley Cup (and etiquette tips for that very situation!) [<a href="http://causewaycrowd.com/2013/07/12/an-open-letter-to-puck-daddy/">CausewayCrowd</a>]</li>

<li> Andrew Ference would be HORRIFIED! Here's what happened when a grandfather left his skates hanging from a tree long ago (en français.) [<a href="http://25stanley.com/apres-les-arbres-de-noel-on-a-des-arbres-dhockey.html">25Stanley</a>]</li>

<li> Here's that OTHER terrific NHL newslist for you to peruse, with a few more Bruins related links. [<a href="http://nhl.si.com/2013/07/15/top-line-kovalev-on-khl-defections-olympic-concerns-more-links/#more-33859">SportsIllustrated</a>]</li>
