Found March 27, 2013 on Boston's Bettah:
PLAYERS: Malcolm Subban
TEAMS: Boston Bruins
Peter Chiarelli says Malcolm Subban will not be traded, but reports say otherwise If the Boston Bruins are to make any trade by next Wednesday’s trade deadline, phone calls made to general manager Peter Chiarelli concerning Bruins goaltending prospect Malcolm Subban. Subban, the 24th overall pick in this past summers NHL draft, is one of the top goalie prospects in the world and figures to be a huge part of the Bruins future. Whether that is immediate future via a trade for a top 6 forward or distant future when he actually tends the goal for the Bruins remains to be seen. If Chiarelli is to be believed, Malcolm Subban is to be a part of the distant future. On “Toucher and Rich” this morning, Chiarelli came on to talk about the trade deadline and said, pretty definitively, that the Boston Bruins were “not” trading Malcolm Subban. There is talk, however, this was said because there are plenty of reports to the contrary. New England Hockey Journal and Bruins prospect expert Kirk Luedeke is hearing otherwise. @bosbettah_benti Chiarelli: “We aren’t trading Subban.” Completely jives with what I was told by Calgary source yesterday. — Kirk Luedeke (@kluedeke29) March 27, 2013 This is the trade-deadline for you. Nothing is actually getting anything done and nobody knows anything for certain. It would make sense for Peter Chiarelli to go on the radio this morning and tell the people that Subban is not on the trade block for two reasons: It gives the people what they want to hear. It could be just Chiarelli working the trade market and putting out quotes to drive up or down the trade market. Basically? I’m not expecting any thing executives say to be truthful until actual trades happen.

The cavalry arrives: Jarome Iginla traded to the Boston Bruins

Sure, Wednesday night’s game sucked. It sucked a lot. The Boston Bruins are officially currently the third best team in the Eastern Conference and no amount of talk about “games in hand” or the hot start can change that fact.

Bruins get back on track

Bruins assistant coach tosses ear piece over his head, ear piece amazingly lands in fan's beer

Boston Bruins assistant coach Geoff Ward decided he'd had enough of an ear piece he was wearing during the Bruins' game on Monday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs, and nonchalantly tossed it over his head.

Bruins Can’t Close Out Canadiens Amidst Playoff Atmosphere in Boston

BOSTON — Walking into TD Garden on Wednesday night, you couldn’t help but feel spring. The sun was still up, splashing the Zakim Bridge with fans scurrying about getting their pizza and beer fix before heading into the big concrete building on Causeway. It felt like playoff hockey. That feeling only intensified soon thereafter as the latest installment of Bruins-Canadiens was...

GIF: Tuukka Rask wasn't happy losing to Montreal

The Boston Bruins lost to the Montreal Canadiens in a shootout after leading by a score of 4-2 after two periods. The Bruins weren't very happy with the result (obviously), but no one displayed their frustration quite like Tuukka Rask. Rask decided to take out his frustration by swinging his stick at the boards as he skated off the ice. The result went about as well as the...

Bruins Claim Kaspars Daugavins Off Waivers

The Bruins made a surprise pickup on Wednesday when they added former Senator Kaspars Daugavins (yes, that Kaspars Daugavins) after claiming him off of waivers. The Senators placed the 24-year-old forward on waivers on Monday. It’s a low-risk, cheap move by B’s GM Peter Chiarelli that has the potential to give the Bruins roster a bit more depth on the bottom half. Daugavins...

Bruins-Canadiens Live: B’s, Habs Meet at Garden in Huge Northeast Division Tilt

8 a.m. ET: This one has been circled on the calendar since March 3. That was the night that the Canadiens came into Boston and beat the Bruins 4-3 in one of the most entertaining games all year. Much of the entertainment came off of the ice, though, when Bruins head coach Claude Julien criticized and accused the Habs for diving and embellishing. It was just another chapter in the...
