Brian Ferlin right in Bruins' mix

It doesn’t take a long look at the Bruins roster to know that, if they are in desperate need of one commodity, it is a right shot winger. With the losses of Jarome Iginla and Shawn Thornton, the two right wingers the B’s have are both left shots in Loui Eriksson and Reilly Smith (presumed he gets signed). That should give the natural right wings at this week’s rookie tournament...

David Krejci’s Goal Scoring Could Increase With Loui Eriksson On His Wing

BOSTON — Bruins center David Krejci’s high hockey IQ, patience with the puck and ability to deliver pinpoint passes make him a tremendous playmaker. One element of Krejci’s game that doesn’t get enough credit is his goal-scoring ability. The 28-year-old forward has been a pass-first player for most of his time with the B’s, primarily because he’s been centering goal-scoring...

Questions Facing The Boston Bruins

from Mat Kalman at NHL.com, Who will replace Jarome Iginla? -- Iginla was the new Nathan Horton. Now the Bruins need a new Iginla to skate with center David Krejci and left wing Milan Lucic. Among the Bruins' returning players, only Loui Eriksson and Smith seem to have the type of offensive skills it takes to play on the first line. Either player will give that line a different...

Loui Eriksson, Simon Gagne Make Top Boston Bruins Story Lines (Video)

Winger Jarome Iginla’s departure from the Boston Bruins this offseason is the basis for many of the team’s top story lines going into the 2014-15 season. Loui Eriksson’s name has been popping up as a possible replacement for Iginla, but the Black and Gold’s depth on the blue line has some thinking that a trade might be the best way for the B’s to fill that hole.

With right winger Jarome Iginla headed to the Colorado Avalanche next season, the Boston Bruins are in need of someone to take his spot on the first line.

Loui Eriksson wasn’t able to perform at a top-six level in his first season with the Boston Bruins after he was the centerpiece of the package the team received from the Dallas Stars in the Tyler Seguin trade.

Loui Eriksson A Great Fit For Bruins’ Top Line Alongside David Krejci, Milan Lucic

The Boston Bruins need a first-line right winger after the free-agent departure of Jarome Iginla, and the search for his replacement should not extend beyond the team’s NHL roster. Veteran winger Loui Eriksson — the best player Boston acquired in last year’s Tyler Seguin trade — would be a tremendous fit on the Bruins’ top line alongside center David Krejci and left winger...

Bruins Should Fill Forward Vacancies From Within Organization

The Boston Bruins will have at least two forward spots to fill before the 2014-15 NHL season. Given the lack of talent on the free agent market, combined with the Bruins’ lack of salary cap space, the best route is to fill the vacant spots on the bottom two lines from within the organization. Luckily for the B’s, most of these young players already have NHL experience, and some...
