Thursday is upon us, and we continue to get little details about the (hopefully) upcoming NHL season.
Yesterday’s mini news was the revelation of the presumed new division alignment. One version of this realignment was shared a few weeks back by ESPN’s Greg Wyshynski, and while his looked a little different than this, he confirmed that this was the current one.
Not finalized yet, and still subject to change, but the 2020-21 four-division re-alignment currently looks like this according to sources:— Pierre LeBrun (@PierreVLeBrun) December 9, 2020
If multiple people are reporting it, we can probably count on it at this point.
Sayonara, Maple Leafs, Canadiens, Senators, and the state of Florida!
Interestingly, the last one of these had Carolina lumped in with this group. It appears that they’ll be playing in a hybrid southeast-midwest division.
If this is the Bruins’ division, you have to think they’re at worst the third-best team, right?
You could make an argument for the Flyers being a legitimate threat, and maybe one of the Penguins or Caps. I still don’t really buy the Islanders, but it’s going to be a short season, so...anything can happen!
That’s Glen Murray scoring a whole bunch of goals, and it’s Murray in the photo atop this post too.
I once had a chance to bid on a Glen Murray All-Star Game jersey on eBay several years back, while he was playing for the Bruins. It ruled.
I forgot to bid on it. It ended up selling for like $20. I still think about it.

How would you rank the teams in the Bruins’ division?
