<li> A successful reload. How the new lines may look with Jarome Iginla and Loui Eriksson. [<a href="http://bostonherald.com/sports/bruins_nhl/boston_bruins/2013/07/peter_chiarelli_wings_it_as_bruins_reload">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> Iginla's camp approached the Bruins this time, and worked toward a contract with bonuses that was agreeable to all. [<a href="http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog/Ty-Anderson/Bs-get-their-warrior-in-Iginla/141/52668#.UdrG7Pn2Z8E">Hockeybuzz</a>]</li>

<li> The Bruins were wise to look past the embarassment of the first attempt to sign Iginla, and will benefit from his talent and leadership. [<a href="http://hockeyjournal.com/blog/kirks/Kirk-s_Call-_Bruins_will_embrace_Jarome_Iginla-s_talent-_leadership">NewEnglandHockeyJournal</a>]</li>

<li> The Bruins' recent roster moves were conservative, not punitive, and necessitated by salary cap issues. Time will tell. [<a href="http://www.weei.com/sports/boston/hockey/bruins/mike-salk/2013/07/08/bruins-take-conservative-route-tyler-seguin-trade">WEEI</a>]</li>
