In Bruins news you can use:

  • That Bruins 2011 Stanley Cup should not have simply been a one-off, and in hindsight, it is easily explained how mismanagement doomed the team. WEEI
  • There is still time for a move before the 3 PM Saturday deadline, but neither Jimmy Hayes nor Matt Beleskey are attractive trade bait and there are much better options available than Malcolm Subban. Stay tuned. Boston Herald
  • Here are the Bruins designated draft picks, along with a handy reminder as to where all the ‘natural’ picks went and why. And thank you, Oilers, for that second rounder... Bruins NHL
  • ESPN missed the boat on a possible 30 for 30 documentary on the Bruins. Here are the hot topics that would have made up the core of a great piece. (With video) Bruins Daily
  • Adam McQuaid is back in Boston, and sends his video greeting from a familiar place while wearing a Red Sox cap. (Video, 0:53) Bruins NHL
  • Happy birthday, Turk! @NHLBruinsAlumni

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • When Top 10 Picks Get Traded- take a look at the fallout from 10 of those instances. Zdeno Chara was a mere afterthought in one of them, and left Mike Milbury to rue the day. Sportsnet
  • Although he will not be re-signed ahead of the July 1 deadline, the Senators are not saying an offer is out of the question for former Bruin Chris Kelly (if he is still available.) @PammerHockey
  • Very good news for Kyle Okposo and the Sabres- when we left off at the end of March, he was seriously ill and his future was in question. He is now ready to rejoin his team at training camp. TSN
  • It appears (thankfully) that most of the NHL jersey changes are mere tweaks, as teased here. Fox Sports
  • For the Bruins fan that has everything, how about a custom Mike Spicer fan caricature? @Spicertoon63
  • Daniel Briere is headed to Portland, ME to helm the new ECHL team.
  • The NHL is still interested in having a team in Seattle, and a Hollywood name (and Kings fan) along with a minority Celtics owner form the proposed ownership group. Sonics Rising
