Greg Zanon was the Avs second* move in the 2012 free agency day, but he's going to be the first guy I profile. (*Matt Carkner excepted)Let's start with some basics and work our way into the advanced stuff. Zanon's a difficult one to profile, since he was on two teams, sites like Behindthenet.ca  don't do as well with players who played for 2 teams. Zanon's career high in points is 15, so I hope no one is looking for scoring from him. But, he also plays a defensive role. Last season he was at a low for TOI/game, and he looks to have been recovering from injuries. On the whole though, he normally hits about 18:00/game. Last season he was good for 1:46 PK TOI/game, which is usually reserved for defensemen on the second unit. However, the previous 3 seasons he averaged 3:02, 3:10, & 3:54. More along the lines of a #2 or #3 defensive defenseman. He only had 18 PIM last season, and in the last three seasons, he never cracked  (48, 36, 38). So we know he's prett...

Jared Knight, Ryan Spooner Remain Determined to Earn Spots in Boston Despite Return of Veterans Up Front

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- When the Bruins brought back the bulk of their veterans up front this offseason, the young prospects in the system knew they would be facing long odds in making the team this year.

Shawn Thornton Curses at, Fights Mark Wahlberg in Feature Film Cameo

Shawn Thornton certainly isn't doing any acting when he's getting in fights on the ice or driving opponents hard in to the boards. However, those same skills may well have come in handy as Thornton showed his skills as a thespian, performing a cameo in Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane's first feature film. Ted is the story of a veritable grown-up Pinocchio, a teddy bear...

Happy Free Agent Day!

Today marks the free agent signing frenzy. Here's what we expect from the Peter Chiarelli and the Boston Bruins today:At most, a depth guy you never heard of (at most). Don't expect a big splash from Chia, not with a limited cap which currently stands at a tiny $277,857.
