Before we get started, let's just get a few basics out of the way.This is not a "Chiarelli sucks" post. We do not think Chiarelli should've pushed hard for Parise or Suter (though we wouldn't have complained if he did), especially give the Bruins current cap and who they need to re-sign next year.This certainly isn't a post in support of the vocal minority of idiots out there who follow the "one man's trash is another man's treasure" approach to trades in the NHL. Yes, we know that in your head a package of Tim Thomas' contract and Max Suave for Bobby Ryan sounds like a pretty sweet deal but in reality that is awful and if Chiarelli called the Ducks to propose that, every other GM would laugh him out of the league.This is merely a sort of What If post.Chiarelli has openly stated he will not be active in free agency. Given what is out there and how much he'd have to over pay, this isn't necessarily a bad idea. He has said he wil...

Andrew Bodnarchuk has found a new home. The defenseman, who spent the bulk of the past four seasons with the Bruins' American Hockey League affiliate in Providence, signed a one-year deal with the Stanley Cup champion Kings on Friday. Bodnarchuk, a fifth-round pick of the Bruins in 2006, did play five games in Boston in 2009-10 and was recalled in February of this past season...
WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Even after being selected with the ninth overall pick in the 2011 draft, Bruins prospect Dougie Hamilton knew he still had plenty to learn before being ready for the NHL. He just wasn't prepared for how hard one of those lessons would be. A massive blueliner who is still growing, adding an inch and 11 pounds in the past year to stand at 6-foot-5, 204 pounds...
A.B. Can we talk about how sick this kid’s Boston Bruins sweatshirt is? Or more importantly why 20 years later he isn’t rocking a Tyler Seguin jersey? It would have been the ultimate tie-in. Old school 90′s shirt evolves into a 2012 phenom jersey. This video was funny but he missed a golden opportunity to bring it full circle. He must be a Canadiens fan now – the only reasonable explana...
WILMINGTON, Mass. -- They've battled against each other for the past four years in the Ontario Hockey League. Soon they will be competing again for far greater stakes, vying for a spot on the big club in Boston. It's the kind of competition that could lead to some animosity and a bitter rivalry. It could, but not when Jared Knight and Ryan Spooner are the two parties in question...
It's amazing how long these offseasons can seem when you're not playing until the middle of June. The Bruins are taking a longer break than they would have liked, but they have already gotten through much of their extended offseason. We've already had the draft, the development camp and the opening of free agency, though the Bruins haven't actually participated in...
It may be the offseason but the Bruins are still keeping busy as they put together next year's team. Free agent season is upon the NHL, new contracts are being signed every day and the two biggest stars on the market -- Zach Parise and Ryan Suter -- just inked new deals with the Minnesota Wild. While the Bruins made an offer for Parise, they have remained quiet on the free agent...
Welcome to Julylights, a month long series taking the top plays of the '11-'12 season and giving them to you one a day, every day of the month of July. Marty Turco is a seasoned vet. He has played in over 500 games, and has won 275 games in his career. However, Turco was not a regular in the NHL last season. He only played in five games for the Boston Bruins, but he made...
What a difference a couple of days make. Since the Zach Parise and Ryan Suter watch is over the summer is basically officially started.

Perusing the internet today it appears that the Boston Bruins also offered Zach Parise a significant contract offer.
Fluto Shinzawa, Boston Globe --- Before Sunday’s market opening, GM Peter Chiarelli said he expected to be quiet. The Bruins have less than $3 million in available cap space.
Had the Bruins signed Parise, they would have exceeded the $70.2 million cap by...
Compared to say, the Minnesota Wild or Dallas Stars, the Bruins have had a pretty calm offseason. That being said, it hasn't been a quiet offseason for Peter Chiarelli and the rest of the B's front office. They've already had to deal with the Tim Thomas scenario, they've re-signed Tuukka Rask to a one-year deal, locked up the fourth line, re-signed Chris Kelly and...
