Found June 26, 2013 on The Nosebleeds:

Jaromir Jagr confirmed the news that we all pretty much knew was coming – he won’t be back with the Bruins next season. Jagr says he won’t be back. “I don’t think I will. … Maybe if I scored 20 goals in playoffs, but I was 20 short.” #Bruins — DJ Bean (@DJ_Bean) June 26, 2013 Jagr will not return to Bruins. — Fluto Shinzawa (@GlobeFluto) June 26, 2013 Jagr was acquired by the Bruins in a trade with the Dallas Stars around the trade deadline this past season, and it was pretty well known that the forward, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent, would only be a half-season rental. The 41-year old Jagr recorded nine points (2 goals, 7 assists) in 11 regular season games with the Bruins. He tallied 8 assists in the playoffs but did not score a goal. It will be interesting to see if Jagr signs elsewhere this offseason or decides to hang up his skates for good. Either way, at least we’ll always have this memory.

  • Bring him back....The Bruins never would have gotten to the Pittsburgh series if JJ hadn't settled the puck down on the boards. Whether he scored or not is irrelevant, none of the younger 1st line players scored either, he still assisted. I really wish that a network would replay the 1st/2nd period in game 5 where JJ forced his will on Blackhawk player by pushing him into the zone with his left hand and controlling the puck with right-hand stick, very impressive. What JJ brings to the Bruins is experience, work ethic. This is a Triple-Crown Hockey Hall of Famer, you mean to tell me that you wouldn’t like to see him mentor. If he hadn’t been injured in first period, there would have been a Game 7. It is so easy for younger men reporting on this issue to say “Oh, he’s old”….that may be the case, but he is in better shape than most; and as in the case of the bedroom, experience, endurance take JJ of Sequin (who thinks he great, JJ is great). Give him one more year. This Boston fan would really like to see him come back.

Bruins not expected to re-sign Andrew Ference

CSNNE’s Joe Haggerty reported Wednesday morning that it was unlikely that the Bruins would re-sign unrestricted free agent defenseman and alternate captain Andrew Ference.

With the NHL lowering...

Tuukka Rask Proved He’s a True No. 1 Goalie, Doesn’t Have to ‘Answer Those Questions Anymore’

It’s safe to say that the Bruins were able to stay afloat without Tim Thomas this year. It’s also safe to say that they found the right man for the job and that the only thing left to put ink to paper and make it official. Tuukka Rask stepped into the B’s No. 1 slot this season, filling Boston’s crease after years of Thomas keeping the TD Garden twine free of rubber. Rask...

Andrew Ference assumes he won’t be back, erases beard

With the way the salary cap works in the NHL combined with the fact that the Boston Bruins young defensive core is starting to get minutes at the big boy club combined with the fact that he really didn’t play all that well, Andrew Ference doesn’t expect to be back in a Boston Bruins sweater in 2013-14. On one hand, its sad because Ference became so much a part of the community...

UCLA fitting national champ in era of low offense

Not only is UCLA the national champion, the Bruins also serve as a model for how to build a winner in this new era of college baseball. The Bruins ended the year with nary a .300 hitter, but, boy, could they pitch and play defense. ''We play a lot of tight games,'' star closer David Berg said. ''We aren't explosive offensively, but we win a lot of games...

Bruins will remember loss 'forever'

Thank You Bruins

What a CRUSHING way to end the season. Minutes away from a game seven. B's took their foot off the gas. You can't do that against Chicago. That's why they were the best team all season. We almost didn't get to see a season at all. Instead we were treated to one of the best Finals we saw in our lifetime, despite the disappointing ending. Some people are blaming...
