    Pasta dished on his first season as a Bruin.

  • David Pastrnak spoke about initially longing to return to Sweden, how injuries opened the door for his NHL debut, meeting Jaromir Jagr, how helpful David Krejci was, and making rookie mistakes (including some social gaffes) both on and off ice. He also detailed more about the recurring injury that knocked him out of the PBruins lineup during the Calder Cup playoffs. (Google translation from Czech) [hokej.idnes]
  • Younger Bruins will be called upon to step up into greater roles for the team as veteran free agents do not return, and will require some patience as a result. [NESN]
  • Change is good. Claude Julien is embracing it. Check out his new look as well!  [TheBostonGlobe]

  • Change is good, but too much change is NOT GOOD. Don't expect a new-look "run and gun" game from the Bruins.  [WEEI]
  • WHEN this all turns around, be sure to credit Julien, after all, he has experience taking the Bruins from disarray to the playoffs. [BostonHerald]
  • The Oilers are pondering making an offer to Dougie Hamilton , and what they would liekly need to give up to make it happen.  [EdmontonJournal]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Jon Cooper's money is just no good in Chicago. Vince Vaughn beat him for the dinner tab just as Charles Barkley had done. [PuckDaddy]
  • The lease has ceased in Glendale, Arizona... [Sportsnet] ...and now the Coyotes have filed a lawsuit of their own against the city. [Sportsnet]
  • Fred Braithwaite is hoping to make the jump from playing to coaching Team Canada's U-20 goalies and consulting to becoming an NHL goalie coach. [TheColorOfHockey]
  • NHL scoring is down, and Scotty Bowman explains what has factored into this new reality. [TheProvince]
  • Joseph Veleno has received "exceptional status" designation just like John Tavares before him, and will play major junior as a fifteen-year-old. [TheHockeyNews]
  • Gordie Howe is doing well after another stem cell treatment, and will be moving to Toledo, OH to be nearer his son, Dr. Murray Howe. [SportingNews]
  • Teams have intangibles, too. Resiliency is one factor that is key to Stanley Cup Playoff success. [Grantland]
  • Now Wyatt Russell has joined the cast of the new Goon sequel. [Deadline]
