Torey Krug, Reilly Smith Still Question Marks As Bruins Camp Approaches

BOLTON, Mass. — “Uncertainty” hasn’t been a buzzword entering the last few Boston Bruins training camp. Sure, there’s been plenty of turnover since the team won its last Stanley Cup in 2011. The B’s have dealt with the departures of Mark Recchi, Andrew Ference, Nathan Horton, Tyler Seguin — all key contributors not automatically replaced. But, when each September rolls...

Bruins shrug off trade chatter

In Nashville, Tenn., on Sunday, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli continued to be transparent about his need to make at least one trade to clear some salary cap space and a logjam on defense. Farther north, several Bruins, after an informal skate yesterday at Ristuccia Arena, held tight that Chiarelli’s singing wasn’t reaching them from the Music City. “I didn’t hear...

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. The biggest takeaways were that David Pastrnak could begin training camp on the right wing of David Krejci‘€™s line, that he will not sign all of his free-agents-to-be and that he will trade...

The Latest On The Boston Bruins

from Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald, Winger Reilly Smith and defenseman Torey Krug are still both unsigned. General manager Peter Chiarelli said he hoped they’d be in camp, but he would not comment on negotiations. And while that situation plays itself out, there’s the likelihood of a trade happening. Chiarelli all but said he’ll be moving one of his nine defensemen...

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...

Could Brad Marchand be the odd man out in Boston?

They’re already just a hair above the cap ceiling and still need to find a way to sign restricted free agents Torey Krug and Reilly Smith to new deals. That’s not even mentioning the fact that David Krejci’s […] The post Could Brad Marchand be the odd man out in Boston? appeared first on Two Pad Stack.

Johhny Boychuk Wants To Stay With Bruins, Says Boston ‘Is Like Home’

Aside from four games with the Colorado Avalanche, Johnny Boychuk has only known life in the NHL as a member of the Boston Bruins, and he hopes it stays that way for the foreseeable future. However, it might not be that simple. The Bruins are up against the NHL salary cap, and they still have to re-sign restricted free agents Reilly Smith and Torey Krug. There have been rumors that...

Brad Park On The Boston Bruins

from Katie Strang of ESPN, “I think they have a very strong nucleus,” Park told 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...

Peter Chiarelli Wants Torey Krug and Reilly Smith In Camp

from Nicholas Goss of NESN, ...the Bruins still need to re-sign restricted free agents Torey Krug and Reilly Smith. The best-case scenario is to finalize these contracts before training camp begins Sept. 18. “I want them to be part of this team and I want them to have a full camp,” Chiarelli said when asked about Krug and Smith. “In my tenure here we’ve never had...

Can The Boston Bruins Afford Johnny Boychuk?

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal, They still have to sign power play defenceman Torrey Krug and top-nine winger Reilly Smith, and they lost first-line forward Jarome Iginla to the Colorado Avalanche because the Avs could give him more than a one-year performance-laced deal. They also have to resign their second-best centre David Krejci, also UFA next summer. ...

Bruins Top Five Young Players

Cunningham could solve Bruins’ problems

We mentioned last week the salary cap crunch the Boston Bruins are currently under.

Report: Boston Bruins need to make a trade

The Boston Bruins are going to have to make a trade in the very near future according to a report from the Boston Globe.

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...

Expect The Boston Bruins To Make A Trade Before The Season Starts

from Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe, The Bruins are in a jam. They have approximately $69 million committed toward 2014-15. This includes Marc Savard’s $4,027,143 annual cap hit and roughly $4.75 million in overage penalties (bonuses achieved last year by Jarome Iginla, Torey Krug, and Dougie Hamilton) they must apply toward their number.

Paying Torey Krug And Reilly Smith

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE, All is quiet with Torey Krug and the Boston Bruins. That’s probably exactly the way the Boston front office has mapped it out. Due to the interesting circumstances behind their first pro contracts, neither Krug nor Reilly Smith have full restricted free-agent rights; instead, they're entry-level restricted free agents. Both Krug and Smith...

Torey Krug and Reilly Smith: Their Situation Explained.

Smith and Krug are interesting cases. They’re considered RFA’s, but don’t have any of the benefits that RFA’s have (No arbitration or the ability to sign offer sheets). It all comes down...
