According to Ken Campbell of The Hockey News, the Boston Bruins have fired their Director of Amateur Scouting, Wayne Smith. Smith was one of GM Peter Chiarelli’s first hires when he became General Manager of the Bruins. After one season as a scout, Smith was promoted to head scout and oversaw a scouting department that drafted Tyler Seguin and Dougie Hamilton and pushed for the team to sign Torey Krug and trade for Matt Bartkowski.
The move comes as a bit of a head scratcher for some, as Chiarelli has said that Smith is a very good scout and a good friend of his. However, when looking at the Bruins’ draft record, the numbers and results are awful.
Since Smith took over the scouting department in 2007, Bruins’ draft picks have played in a combined 144 NHL games, and have a stat line of 14 goals, 23 assists and 37 points. That excludes Dougie Hamilton and Tyler Seguin, of course, who were both top 10 draft picks. Add that to...

Every hockey season there always seems to be a younger player who rises above what’s expected of him, and performs at a level that people couldn’t see coming. This past season for the Bruins, that player would be Torey Krug, who was thrown into the fire of the post-season, and took the league by storm. Did he find himself making rookie mistakes throughout his run? There is...
The Boston Bruins announced today the training camp would begin on Wednesday, September 11 with Rookie Training Camp starting on Tuesday, September 3. So far this offseason, the Bruins have made some big changes by adding forwards Loui Eriksson, Jarome Iginla and resigning both goaltender Tuukka Rask and center Patrice Bergeron to eight-year contract extension. Gone is center/wingers...
Bruins fans certainly got to know the bizarre antics of Jaromir Jagr during his short, half-season stint in Boston this past season. With news that the B’s wouldn’t be bringing Jagr back next year, the 41-year old Czech forward has to decide what his future holds. Jagr addressed that future by posting a really strange video to his Facebook page on Tuesday. In the low-quality...
In what feels like another lifetime ago, in the days before Jaromir Jagr left a few mediocre seasons with the Caps and NY Rangers and headed for the KHL, the scuttlebutt was Jagr had become a problem in the "room" and a selfish player. On July 1, 2011, three teams who had been talking to Jagr for months: Detroit, Montreal, and Pittsburgh were "shocked and disappointed...
The “Devourer Of Souls” AKA Zdeno Chara of the Boston Bruins has been a galvanizing figure for the franchise since his arrival in 2006. He has become a stalwart on the blue line and a leader as the captain of the Bruins. Big Z has been a driving force behind the team’s turnaround since 2008 with two trips to the Stanley Cup Final, winning it all back in 2011.
At age 36, Zdeno...

Though the 2012-2013 season finished about three weeks ago, the Bruins have yet to cease development for the upcoming preseason in September.
The seventh annual Boston Bruins 2013 Development Camp hosted at Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington, Mass., featured many new, upcoming and hopefully future stars. The camp started on Wednesday, July 10, and wrapped...

This tweet was very funny. Although, it's very true when describing hockey players.

This may shock you, but Jaromir Jagr is a ******* weirdo.
A potentially broke, gambling addicted weirdo.
So apparently he posted a video on Facebook and he looks like he just crawled out of a crack shack. The video isn't in English, but if you want to watch it here it is:
Ugh, yeah. Luckily Puck Daddy is on it:

The Bruins’ short summer will be over before you know it.
The club released its 2013 preseason schedule Tuesday and coincidentally, they will open their exhibition slate two months from Tuesday. Training camp will open Sept. 11, and the Bruins will drop the puck on their first preseason game on Sept. 16 in Montreal.
The club’s first home game of the preseason will be played Sept...
The Bruins have announced their preseason schedule. Unfortunately, Boston only has two home games at the Garden:
9/19 vs Detroit
9/23 vs Washington
Here's how the rest of the schedule breaks down:
Boston Bruins draftee and current UND goalie Zane Gothberg coaches a group of youth hockey players during a clinic in Burlington. Gothberg is currently attending the Boston Bruins prospect camp.
Check out the O'Gara Blog Zane Gothberg mention (ndgoon.blogspot.com)
(Before we jump into this, I think itâs become clear that someone in the Boston Bruinsâ front office knows my schedule. Going on a boat for the Fourth of July with friends? Trade Tyler Seguin. Out at a holiday weekend cookout? Sign Jarome Iginla. Decide to take a vacation? Finalize contracts for Tuukka Rask and Patrice Bergeron. Now, Iâm not suggesting that Peter Chiarelli...
Earlier this morning, a very disheveled looking Jaromir Jagr (or a really good impersonator) posted a video on Facebook presumbably after a few blackjack shoes that was entirely in Czech, in what can only be described as odd.
According to Puck Daddy and transcribed from sport.rz, Jagr allegedly talks about his future in the NHL looking "black."
