Goaltending has been a heated topic in the city of Boston, Massachusetts in recent months. It started with the Boston Bruins’ loss of 23-year-old Malcolm Subban to the Vegas Golden Knights via waivers in October. Then there was ‘The Great Goalie Debate’ in recent weeks: Tuukka Rask and Anton Khudobin split the crease with five

Last week, I mentioned that the New York Islanders appeared to be a tailor-made partner should Boston look to make the increasingly-rare, in-season “hockey trade.” Should the Bruins instead opt for the more common negotiations with an established “seller,” look no further than the perennial “sellers from the cellar” Arizona Coyotes. Why the Coyotes? As

Back in the summer of 2015, during the infancy of Don Sweeney’s tenure as general manager of the Boston Bruins, the newly-appointed bossman had a lot of work to do. With the recent departure of fan-favorite power-forward Milan Lucic, Sweeney had big shoes to fill. Eager to replace the assertive, powerful offensive presence provided by Lucic,

Recent rumors indicate that the Boston Bruins have expressed interest in Edmonton Oilers center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Nick Kypreos mentioned the Bruins on Hockey Night in Canada as a team that has checked on the 24-year-old pivot’s availability. The Bruins may be looking for a center for any number of reasons. For starters, Ryan Spooner is a restricted free agent (RFA) again at

When a team puts an NHL player on the trading block, and when those players are reportedly allowed to explore trades, it naturally creates a stir among the hockey community. Which team will put together a package to acquire that player? Is that player even worthwhile? During times like this, players will often see their

The resurgent Boston Bruins saw their four-game winning streak come to a screeching halt Sunday afternoon versus a reeling Edmonton Oilers squad that had won just one contest over their previous five games. The B’s looked lethargic over the first 40 minutes, were outshot 27-11, outhit and generally outworked. Moreover, the result again thrust the

Now that the turkey’s been eaten, and we’ve all woken up from our food comas, it’s time to focus on the holidays. It’s a great time of year when you think about it. Friends and family get together, exchange gifts, and show each other just how much you care. What if NHL teams had this

In spite of being in North America for many years already, Anton Khudobin was never a true starting goalie in the NHL. Things aren’t changing with the Boston Bruins, where he sits behind Tukka Raask on the team’s depth chart. However, his recent strong play gave him a chance not only to shine but also

Though a Stanley Cup Championship in 2011 was probably worth it, Peter Chiarelli’s tenure with the Boston Bruins is (for better or worse) largely tainted by miscalculations. Swings-and-misses in free agency and at the draft. Rash, compromising, franchise-altering trades. Egregious misappropriations of precious funds which served to dismember one of the league’s elite franchises. You

It’s perhaps the worst kept secret in all of professional hockey; the Boston Bruins have a tremendous number of high-end left-handed defense prospects. With arguably the deepest prospect pool in the entire NHL – a pool that’s already paying dividends for the Bruins in numbers already this season, the question shifts from “who is going

His nickname was “Nifty”, and if you ever saw Rick Middleton play you would understand why. Few snipers could skate in on a goaltender or dangle the puck the way that he could. In fact, the term “dangling” in hockey might best belong to Middleton. It was the way he did it. When lovers of

The Boston Bruins are a measly 6-6-4 through their first 14 games this season after back-to-back losses to the Toronto Maple Leafs this weekend. But don’t let that record fool you into thinking this team is resting at .500. Three of those four overtime losses came in games where the Bruins either had a lead

Boston Bruins left-winger Brad Marchand has developed himself from a fourth-line pest into one of the NHL’s premier scorers. His path to joining the NHL elite was atypical, however. According to Hockey-Graphs, most players plateau in Wins Above Replacement (WAR) from age 22 to 25 and endure a slow decline in the following years. Other

This article was originally written in October, 2015. As many hockey fans, and Bruins fans in particular know, the Boston Bruins are the NHL’s oldest American team. Over the last 91 years, the Bruins have gained a massive gathering, and have become one of the NHL’s most beloved teams. In the rich sports region of

It has been more than six years since the Boston Bruins agreed to send Blake Wheeler and Mark Stuart to the Atlanta Thrashers in exchange for Rich Peverley and Boris Valabik. At the time many felt the trade was a win for Peter Chiarelli and company, as the veteran winger played a key role in

Back in July, I wrote about the far-reaching benefits the Boston Bruins would reap from a Matt Beleskey bounce back. Coming off of a serious knee injury and the least productive season of his career, it seemed a resurgence was not only probable but also likely. Talent doesn’t disappear overnight, and the Windsor, Ontario native has

If you didn’t get a chance to watch the first period of the Boston Bruins game against the Vancouver Canucks game Thursday, you missed out on the best stretch of Bruins hockey so far this season.

When the Bruins earned their first victory of the season in their opening game against the Nashville Predators, many had high expectations moving forward. Justifiably so as the team looked quick, skilled and exciting. That emotional high didn’t last long though as the Bruins laid a goose-egg against the lowly Colorado Avalanche in their home

If any team is familiar with a bad salary cap situation, it’s the Boston Bruins. When Don Sweeney took over as the general manager of the team, part of his job was cleaning up after former Bruins’ general manager Peter Chiarelli who, to his credit built a Stanley Cup team in Boston but simply couldn’t
