The roster has been finalized in advance of opening night tomorrow. The Bruins host the Predators at 7:00PM on NESN.

  • Malcolm Subban is now a Las Vegas Golden Knight - what did the Bruins get in return? Bupkis. Zero. Zip. Nada. WEEI
  • No team would trade an asset for him, so as much as the Bruins valued him, sadly, his market value was pretty low. Days Of Y’Orr
  • Perhaps they were carrying too many goalies, but this turn of events is still a loss for the Bruins. Bonus- Patrice Bergeron is ailing, and Rob O’Gara is headed to Providence. Boston Herald
  • Peter Chiarelli rolled the dice in drafting the young goalie in the first round. Take a look at the success that brought him to the Bruins attention, and his subsequent struggles. The Hockey Writers
  • Well, Anton Khudobin, it is now all you. No pressure or anything. Boston Globe
  • The Bruins roster is nearly finalized, as sketched out here. WEEI
  • In happier news, it looks like Matt Grzelcyk will be standing in for the injured Torey Krug for now. Other youngsters will still be waiting in the wings. South Coast Today
  • Jake DeBrusk and Anders Bjork are steeling themselves to take the ice in Bruins uniforms tomorrow. Bruins Daily
  • He not only brings it every night, he makes those around him better. Zdeno Chara is huge part of the Bruins, in more ways than one. Bruins Daily
  • The Don Sweeney era is now up for scrutiny. Boston Herald
  • This Bruins season preview includes a bold prediction, as well as games that you shouldn’t miss. NESN
  • The Road Ahead- saddle up for a Saturday matinee at home this weekend against the Avalanche, then a quick Western road trip. Metro.US
  • Ryan Spooner is not just a hockey player, he has other talents as well. Popternative
  • Battered boards and chicken wire frame the scene in this picture of Frank Brimsek and Eddie Shore. @NHLhistorygirl

  • This projection can’t quite pin down the Bruins and Panthers, but names the team teetering on the cusp of being the bust and looks to the Maple Leafs to take it all in the Atlantic Division. Puck Daddy
  • Thirty-one thoughts includes the tidbit that the Blues and Canucks were interested in The Jagr. See the interesting GIF of a resistance drill employed by Connor Hellebuyck. The Capitals are still reeling from last season’s elimination at the hands of the Penguins. Sportsnet
