Bruins’ Front Office Diagnosed With Verbal Diarrhea

The Torey Krug/Reilly Smith holdout that isn’t really a holdout keeps getting uglier. As expected, they missed the start of training camp, which is well within their rights as unsigned players.

Bruins expect serious camp bids from Leino, Gagne

With the contract status of Torey Krug and Reilly Smith up in the air, perhaps it’s not such a bad thing that veteran forwards Simon Gagne and Ville Leino will be in Bruins training camp on veteran tryout agreements. Both players provide veteran competition for the open forward spots, and give the Bruins insurance in case the Smith negotiations take some time to get completed....

Reilly Smith, Torey Krug Expected To Hold Out

I am going to file this news in the “no ******* folder. Word coming out of Boston is that both Smith and Krug are going to hold out because the Bruins can’t haven’t signed them to new contracts.

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...

from Katie Strang of ESPN, “I think they have a very strong nucleus,” Park told ESPN.com in a recent phone conversation. “I think they’ll probably lose some offensive power with Iginla not coming back. I don’t think they have somebody capable of scoring, on a regular basis, 25-to-30 goals. Offensively, that hurts them.” The Bruins, who recently signed key performer...
