TEAMS: Boston Bruins

It was gamble worth taking, but the Benoit Pouliot experiment is over in Boston. The Bruins took a chance that the enigmatic forward could finally harness his ample skills under the tutelage of Claude Julien, signing the fourth overall pick of the 2005 draft to a one-year deal last summer. Julien did get more out of Pouliot than any previous NHL coach in his stops in Minnesota and Montreal, but even a career-high 32 points was still underwhelming production for the player of Pouliot's ability. Pouliot dazzled at times with some highlight-reel goals, but also disappeared for stretches and was...

Bruins goalie Thomas waives no-trade clause

Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas, who does not plan to play next season, waived his no-trade clause, general manager Peter Chiarelli said Friday, according to ESPN Boston. The clause would have expired July 1, but Thomas waived it early, possibly so that the Bruins can trade him before or during the upcoming draft. "He has given me a complete waiver of his no-trade clause...

Tuukka Rask Begins Contract Negotiations to Officially Replace Tim Thomas (Video)

You can rest assured, Bruins fans, that there are no rebuilding years. Every single year the team's goal is to capture the Stanley Cup. With that in mind, there's certainly a lot going on in the world of the Bruins. The team just opened contract negotiations with presumed starting goaltender Tuukka Rask, who's job it is to replace the heralded former Conn Smythe winner...

Bruins swallow hard, pick Subban's brother in draft

The Bruins found themselves in a different draft situation than they were in the last two years. No more high picks coming for Phil Kessel.

Malcolm Subban Promises to Add Spice to Montreal Rivalry, Talent to Bruins Net in Coming Years

When the Bruins' turn to walk to the podium in the opening round of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft in Pittsburgh finally came late Friday night, Boston fans feared the worst after murmurs of the unthinkable started to spread.

Bruins Enter NHL Draft in Midst of What Could Be Another Very Busy Offseason

Peter Chiarelli has said that he doesn't want to disrupt the Bruins' core too much, but the B's general manager has been a pretty busy guy already this offseason. Chiarelli has worked to re-sign players like Chris Kelly and Gregory Campbell. He's also had to deal with the Tim Thomas situation, which took another weird turn on Friday when Chiarelli revealed that Thomas...

Bruins Select Goalie With First Round Pick

                        The Boston Bruins selected goaltender Malcolm Subban with the 24th pick in the 2012 NHL Draft. This was a really stupid pick by the Boston Bruins.  I have no idea why they would draft a goalie with their only first round pick.  We already have Tuukka Rask as our long-term goalie and Anton Khudobin as a back-up.  Not to mention that Malcolm...
