In Bruins news you can use:

  • The Bruins and Ryan Spooner’s camp have come clean with their thoughts on salary ahead of an arbitration meeting and ruling. It may be a bridge too far. Boston Globe
  • Here’s what other comparable players are signing for, and why the fact that it got this far is not good news for Spooner’s hopes to stay in Boston. CBS Boston
  • Zdeno Chara holds himself to a high standard as an older, elite athlete- Tom Brady and Jaromir Jagr are his spirit animals. NESN (Heck, Brady isn’t ready to rule out playing at 50... WEEI)
  • Have a look at a buncha handsome Bruins representing the team in China. @NHLBruins
