Bruins lose Colby Cave to Edmonton

Adios, Cave Man.

It's always a gamble putting a player on waivers, and this time, the Bruins lost.


Cave is a hard-working player, one that you hate to see leave the organization, especially for nothing in return.

Edmonton has been trying to make itself harder to play against up front for a while now, so the move makes sense for them. It's essentially a no-risk move for a struggling team.

It's tough to see the Bruins lose someone for nothing again, but it's the reality of building a roster in today's NHL.

The Bruins also announced the move they made that ultimately caused them to lose Cave: they recalled Peter Cehlarik from Providence. We'll get to that in another post.

Best of luck to Cave in Edmonton.
