So, let's talk about where the Bruins sit regarding draft(s), shall we?

  • There are some very specific ways in which an expansion draft would affect the Bruins' roster, as Fluto Shinzawa explains, and the time frame to subsequently adjust the team's regular NHL Draft strategy would be only two short days. The Boston Globe
  • Job #1 is that search for the elusive heir to the Bruins' franchise defenseman title. Hockeybuzz
  • Keeping that need in mind, Boston University's Charlie McAvoy should be targeted with the Bruins' first pick. Discuss. Causeway Crowd
  • Is the white flag being waved over the Bruins' defensive corps? Who is expendable to get that defenseman that it seems all the NHL teams are seeking? Puck Daddy
  • Got rumors? Everyone has an opinion about which players are being targeted by the Bruins, and at what possible prices, as summarized here. TheHockeyNews
  • This sounds like a hoot, and Brian Ferlin is the special guest- the "Guns and Hoses" police vs. firefighters hockey benefit! Florida Times Union
  • NOT wishing to disappoint John Whitesides at Bruins camp this summer, Jakub Zboril is Crossfit training at home with his brother Adam, and is prepared to rein in his offensive impulses in favor of prudent defending as the Bruins wish. (Google translation from Czech) Brnensky Denik He was glad to be promoted to the first power play unit for the St. John Sea Dogs when they reached the playoffs. Brnensky Denik

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • You didn't choose the hockey life, your children chose it for you? USA Hockey has a guidebook for parents so that you will be well prepared. USA Hockey
  • Former Capital (and Bruins playoff hope spoiler from 2012, grrrr...) Joel Ward nearly didn't make it to the NHL, having played in the OHL, receiving tepid interest in the 1999 NHL Draft, and being cut from Red Wings camp only to be noticed playing roller hockey. His secret weapon? One determined mama. Sports Illustrated
  • The NHL is going to the mat on the Dennis Wideman suspension, filing suit against the NHLPA to enforce the full penalty. Puck Daddy
  • Could the Bruins be interested in collecting ALL THE MILLERS? UFA Drew Miller has not yet signed with Detroit, just sayin'... NBC Sports
  • Will Arnett and his team prepare for the NHL Awards, and a special visitor arrives at the meeting... (Video, 0:30) YouTube
  • Former Bruin Milan Lucic appears to be headed for free agency. The Hockey News
  • A team of roller hockey players is hoping to take to the ice and represent Brazil in international competition. The Wall Street Journal
  • Daniel Carcillo is only now ready to talk about Steve Montador's passing, and how hard he tried to keep up appearances for his teammates. Players Tribune
  • Because Vegas, baby- have a look at blinged out NHL logos. ESPN
