Right Wingers

No! No dreadful election news, just some assessments of Bruins wingers.

In Bruins news:

  • Time to assess the Bruins’ right wings- Dave and Daver (David Krejci and David Pastrnak) should be healthy and productive. Cerebral Danton Heinen will be pressing Jimmy Hayes for a spot if the latter allows it. (With audio, 45:22) Scouting Post
  • Six. That’s how many centermen Ryan Spooner is in competition with for a job. Providence Journal
  • If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result, Cam Neely’s confidence in the improved performance of his fundamentally unchanged defensive corps this year is not rational. NBC Sports The sobering news from Team Europe’s preview games is that Zdeno Chara looks noticeably slower. Fox Sports
  • No, Brad Marchand’s contract extension has NOT been forgotten. WEEI
  • Much depends upon this trio of Bruins in the upcoming season. The Score
  • Meanwhile, on the links with a pantheon of former Bruins at their annual golf outing, Heinen spoke about seeing his shot at making the roster. The Boston Globe
  • Matt Beleskey joined Pastrnak and Andrew Raycroft representing the Bruins in a trip to China to promote hockey. The Chinese are very serious about learning the discipline and skills to play the game... and learning how tall Chara is. Player’s Tribune
  • NHL owners and executives are left holding their collective breath that they won’t be left holding the bag as franchise players like Patrice Bergeron play in international tournaments. The Boston Globe

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • In welcome news, the Boston Pride’s Denna Laing (who survived 133 days of hospital meals at Mass General, just sayin’... ) will use her experience as a victim/witness advocate to pursue a career in law. NHL
  • Pause to remember 9/11 with Paul Stewart, whose immediate family as well as hockey family suffered losses, as he reminisces about Ace Bailey. Hockeybuzz
  • Looking back at the Canada Cup, what was in it for the players? Ultimately, as it turned out in 1984, not much. Is the World Cup of Hockey now only meant to replace players’ participation in the Olympics? Boston Herald
  • New "concussion spotters" will actually have the authority to remove NHL players from games. The Hockey News
  • You know these 15 types of folks that you’ll meet at the World Cup of Hockey, including that one hot-handed goalie on that otherwise unremarkable team that steals games. Sportsnet
  • Nino Niederreiter grew up in Switzerland, where his yard didn’t see the sun for three months a year- perfect for an ice rink! His backup plan to playing hockey? Plumbing. Player’s Tribune
  • Watch the North American "Young Guns" to get a glimpse of the future of the NHL. The Globe and Mail
