In Bruins news you can use:

  • Peter Chiarelli will now stand pat through camp, to see "who might bubble up." Before the cap ties his hands finally, he wants to take every opportunity to keep his core. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • Locking up David Krejci and solidifying the Bruins down the center is a Western Conference style move. And it is a good move- just look at the comparables in Krejci's draft class. [TheFourthPeriod]
  • After David Pastrnak participates in Rookie Camp and the tournament in Nashville, he will either have earned a roster spot or will return to Sweden for another season. Peter Chiarelli vows to be conservative with him. [ESPN]
  • Just for laughs, the Bruins do have one intriguing option for the right wing, a right-shot who played that position in his rookie NHL year. [SouthCoastToday]
  • Froyo Matt Fraser is finally able to work out on the now healed broken foot that he was playing on last season in the playoffs. [Boston.CBSLocal]
  • Former Bruin Brad Park believes Tuukka Rask still has another gear and is not yet fully established, and as the team's nucleus is strong, he feels the Bruins would benefit by a focus on offense.  [ESPN]
  • One young Bruins defensemen deserves his shot in the NHL, even if it is not with the Bruins. [WEEI]
  • A long read: Former Bruin Hal Gill was among the players that changed their defensive games from "clutch and grab" to more positional as the NHL rules changed. He now finds himself a free agent without a contract.  The Bruins' present defensive system has been difficult for several otherwise good blueliners to embrace.  The Bruins hope Torey Krug and Reilly Smith do attend camp rather than holding out.  Several NHL enforcers are still without contracts, demonstrating a shift from fighting in the league.  [TheBostonGlobe]

  • On a happier note, look back to the Top 10 Hockey Video Games. Remember Sega Genesis? [BruinsDaily]
  • Thankfully, reports of his demise were premature- Jean Beliveau is recuperating at home from a bout with pneumonia. [MontrealGazette]
  • Book it! The Winter Classic will be the Capitals vs. the Blackhawks at Nationals Park. [PuckDaddy]
  • Reporting from the unveiling of the Maple Leafs stature unveiling, this is some of what was heard to be spoken in the crowd. Really! [DownGoesBrown]
