In Bruins news you can use:

  • Keep your fingers crossed, Don Sweeney is negotiating with David Pastrnak’s representative. Two players also represented by agent J.P. Barry recently are now former Bruins. WEEI
  • Las Vegas was listening at the NHL Combine, and trades were the topic. The option to move Matt Beleskey would mean turning over a draft pick. Boston Globe
  • It’s nothing personal, but the Bruins can’t afford an expensive roadblock to the promising bevy of young Bruins coming up. Boston Herald
  • Immediate needs are a priority for the Bruins in a weak draft year, so the Bruins are prepared to sacrifice their first-round pick. NBC Sports
  • Congratulations to the Beleskeys, who have welcomed daughter Ivy and are enjoying a picture postcard summer on a lake. (Video, 0:39) Bruins NHL
  • Tim Schaller is a gearhead- we need to tell him about Stanley Cup of Motor Oil. @Showtime43CC
  • Seen at the QMJHL draft... Jeremy Lauzon. @Eags37

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Yo, Predators- It ain’t over ‘till it’s over, just ask the 2011 Bruins. The Score
  • It should come as no surprise that two heated topics under scrutiny by the NHL Competition Committee are slashing and offside reviews. Sportsnet
  • You may not often agree with Don Cherry, but he’s right. Hockey parents are the BEST. This HNIC opening montage doesn’t need pop music to sing. (VIdeo, 2:22) YouTube
  • On this date fifty years ago the ‘Second Six’ NHL teams arrived on the scene. NHL
  • They say no one wants to know how sausage is made. How about clear sock tape? Can you say “mucilaginous?” BarDown
  • To heck with pulling the goalie, try four forwards when your team is behind late in the game. Hockey-Graphs
  • Look at the looming court battle over junior hockey and pay through the lens of two players’ experiences. CBC
  • Remember little Oliver Wahlstrom, who wowed us between periods in Mini One-on-One? He’s been busy, committing to UMaine, decomitting, attending Shattuck-St. Mary’s, and playing for Team USA. He appears for to be Harvard-bound. For now. (With video) Press Herald
  • This podcast’s topic is nominally hockey as show business and the hockey fan hosts are a musician and filmmaker. Since one follows the Bruins, there’s plenty here, although it appears to have been recorded this spring. They also touch on NHL community outreach and players taking stands on social media (notably Brad Marchand.) NSFW (Audio, 1:01:22) Soundcloud, The Loudmouth Report
