Chiarelli: At some point, I’m going to have to trade a defenseman

At the first intermission of the Bruins’€™ rookie game against the Lightning, general manager Peter Chiarelli discussed the team’€™s NHL roster and where things stand going forward.

Thomas Smith and the ‘Look-Up Line’

http://justcureparalysis.org Could there be a change on the horizon in the way the game of hockey approaches dangerous hits along the boards? If Thomas Smith has his way, this is just the beginning. Smith was paralyzed playing for the Boston Junior A Bulldogs when he went headfirst into the boards while trying to avoid a collision. Somehow, he came back and resumed playing hockey...

Bruins need a trade to free up space

This time of year, the U-Hauls that wedge themselves under the Storrow Drive bridges are not the only vehicles reintroducing themselves to Boston. In the coming weeks, as the Bruins return, luxury cars will rocket past unfortunate undergraduates en route to downtown apartments. But one Euromobile will have to turn around and aim at another NHL city. The Bruins are in a jam. They...

Marc Savard Turns To Golf

from Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun, There are days when Savard still suffers symptoms, but his health has improved — though he realizes a potential NHL comeback is not likely in the cards. “It’s going to be tough to play again,” said Savard, who had 207 goals and 706 points in the regular season and added eight goals and 22 points in the post-season. “I listen...

Marc Savard, LTIR and the Salary Cap: What It All Means.

I know Savard’s LTIR status is brought up a lot, so here we go. Before Free Agency starts in about 45 minutes, lets talk about Savard’s LTIR money. Teams who have LTIR candidates (Boston, Philly) DO NOT get IR cap relief in the summer, but those teams are given a 10% overage allowance to spend on top of the cap limit. Once Savard qualifies for LTIR, the Bruins can designate him...

NHL announces salary cap at $69 million, leaving B's with just under $6 million in room

The off-season for the Boston Bruins just got a whole lot more difficult. And that's putting it lightly.Through multiple reports, the NHL has settled on the final cap number for the upcoming 2014-15 season: it is is $69 million. Many projected the cap to creep right above the $71 million mark. It isn't. And this is bad news for the Bruins. Very bad news.With the final number...

Bruins looking at $4.75 million cap penalty

The salary cap numbers are finally beginning to filter in for the Boston Bruins for next season, and they are not very good at all. The excellent, accurate web site www.capgeek.com has the Bruins pegged for a $4.75 bonus overage penalty for the 2014-15 season, and that essentially means it’s dead money that Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli can’t utilize for this upcoming...

Quotes from Savard’s TSN Interview

Marc Savard was arguably one of the best playmakers in the NHL before Matt Cooke decided to go King Henry VIII on him on the ice. It spurred Rule 48 and every hit — legal or otherwise — being put under a microscope. Last night, Savard joined the folks on TSN for an interview. Here are some quotes (taken from PuckDaddy), and some tweets: On Rule 48: “At the end of the day, I...

The Bruins May Need To Get Creative To Re-Sign Jarome Iginla

from Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe, This is how the Bruins locked up Iginla to a one-year contract with a $1.8 million cap hit. They promised Iginla $4.2 million in bonuses for a possible payday of $6 million. So far, Iginla has been well worth the investment. The drawback, as the Bruins always knew, is how it will affect next year’s books. The Bruins are projected...
