After nearly winning the Stanley Cup this year, the Boston Bruins seem poised to make some major changes.
The team is ready to let go of winger Jaromir Jagr, who isn't ready to retire from the NHL. Concussion-marred Nathan Horton will also get to test the market after failing to get six years and $36 million in Beantown.
CSN New England reports that agent Paul Krepelka told the Bruins Horton is moving on and wants "a new beginning" elsewhere.
The Bruins may shop Tyler Seguin as well, given the team's need to clear salary cap space for the Patrice Bergeron and Tuukka Rask contract extensions. National Hockey League general managers are working the phone in advance of Sunday's NHL Draft and the July 5 opening of the free agent marketplace.
Here is the rundown:
- The Philadelphia Flyers have dangled defenseman Braydon Coburn to the Edmonton Oilers for draft picks.
- The Colorado Avalanche are willing to part withe defenseman Erik Johnson, who has been a mammoth disappointment since arriving from the St. Louis Blues.
- The Chicago Blackhawks are ready to move sturdy two-way center Dave Bolland in order to deal with its salary cap issues.
- Daniel Alfredsson wants to keep playing, but are the Senators willing to pay the price necessary to finish his career where it started? Maybe not.
- The Dallas stars began a big push for Vincent Lecavalier with a meeting today. The new regime apparently is following the same script as the previous regime.
- As the St. Louis Blues sign their RFAs one by one, other teams wonder if David Perron could be moved. He could.
