Report: Bruins Had Deal In Place For Canucks’ Alexander Edler

Stephen Dunn / Getty Images By Mitch Cole (@DirtyWaterBuzz) Prior to Thursday’s Bruins game against the Capitals, Boston GM Peter Chiarelli told NESN that Philadelphia has retained half of Andrej Meszaros’ cap hit.

Video: Ryan Reaves destroys Alexander Edler

The Blues resumed play after the Olympic break with a sluggish, unmotivated effort. The Blues looked slow, out of synch and unprepared to take the ice against the Canucks. However, there was one man who looked happy to be back out on the ice and playing hockey. Ryan Reaves. If you missed the late night contest against Vancouver, make sure you don't miss this crushing hit...

Canucks’ Alexander Edler Takes Digger After Whiffing Badly On Check (GIF)

For Vancouver Canucks defenseman Alexander Edler, the transition back to NHL ice after competing on the big Olympic sheet in Sochi was not entirely a smooth process.

The Swedish silver medalist’s hopes for a big hit were dashed, though, as Edler mistimed...

The Canucks haven't been to Pittsburgh in like three years and let's be honest, we didn't miss them.  Excuse us while we giggle derisively into our coffee because yes, it's still coffee territory at 1pm.  Steiggy kept calling the Canucks one of the most successful franchises of recent years.  If you mean that the way you mean it when you talk about the Capitals...
