Feeling much better this morning, thanks... and you?


  • The Bruins scored Matt Beleskey and Jimmy Hayes yesterday, lost Reilly Smith and Marc Savard , and there were happy landings for Matt Bartkowski , Gregory Campbell , and David Warsofsky . [TheBostonGlobe] Matt Lindblad has joined the New York Rangers ... [WEEI] ... Justin Florek is now with the Islanders ... [NJ.com] ...and Rob Flick joins the Panthers . [NHL]

  • Don Sweeney survived the early firestorm and performed with admirable restraint on day one of Free Agency. [TSN]

  • The verdict? Well played- and now the Bruins appear to be on target for their stated goal. [TheHockeyNews]

  • Ryan Spooner and Jeremy Smith have signed. [NESN]

  • The acquisition of Beleskey should finally give David Krejci his wings to fly. [WEEI] Apparently the no-trade clause was what really made the Bruins' offer to Beleskey stand out. [PuckDaddy]

  • It is disappointing to lose Savard , but he is reported to be enjoying improved health. [ESPN]

  • All the recent roster upheval left Brad Marchand on pins and needles. [BostonHerald]

  • The Zac Rinaldo acquisition leaves uncomfortable questions,  while the Beleskey deal shows the wisdom of players considering settling for less than top dollar. [PuckDaddy]

Elsewhere around the rink:


  • (Now former Boston University Terrier) Jack Eichel has signed to jump on in to help the new-look Sabres . [BostonHerald]

  • Call him "boomerang." Zbynek Michalek will return to the Coyotes for his third stint! [TheHockeyNews]

  • Time to reassess the best and worst of Free Agency. [SportingNews]

  • Rich Clune 's relationship with alcohol (and ultimately drugs) developed alongside his career in junior hockey. He offers his story frankly, and as a cautionary tale. [ThePlayersTribune]

  • Former Bruins in the news: Carter Camper was acquired by the Capitals ... [@WashCaps] ...while Craig Cunninham was re-signed by the Coyotes ... [@ArizonaCoyotes] ...and Jared Knight accepted a qualifying offer from the Wild . [@RenLavoieTVA]
