In Bruins news you can use:

  • Let’s make a deal! If the Bruins can orchestrate it, they need for the Golden Knights to select a defenseman, even if a certain young goalie would be a better choice. WEEI
  • Despite all the talk of moving Matt Beleskey, the Knights would be better served by considering Drew Stafford or even Dominic Moore. Bonus- how Jordan Eberle is like Tomas Kaberle. CBS Boston
  • As a result of the expansion draft, ordinary summertime decisions for the Bruins bear extra weight. The last expansion draft was way back in 2000. (With video) Bruins NHL
  • The Bruins will help the Red Wings christen their brand new Little Caesars Arena (preseason) on September 23rd. PIZZA PIZZA! Detroit News
