When Dougie Hamilton gets into the thick of his career, he will be one of the best defensemen in the NHL.

Matt Fraser’s shot is good enough that it probably could get him an NHL job on its own on many teams.

This summer, Ryan Spooner shot the puck. On Tuesday, he scored.

In his first full season with the Bruins, Carl Soderberg was one of the best third-line centers in the NHL.

Training camp is set to kick off and this preseason figures to be one of the more interesting ones for the Bruins in recent memory.

ANTIOCH, Tenn. -- In the days after they beat the Canucks to win the Stanley Cup in 2011, it seemed the Bruins were high on being the Bruins, and for good reason.

WILMINGTON — David Krejci’s new contract doesn’t hurt the status of unsigned entry level free agent

The Bruins backed up the Brink’s truck for David Krejci. Why?

WILMINGTON —- In years past, Bruins prospects who have yet to turn pro have not participated in captains practice, instead waiting until rookie camp to get on the ice with teammates in the fall.

Tuukka Rask has a bright, well-paid future ahead of him. It would take such a good situation ahead to not want to hold onto a past that includes his first Vezina Trophy.

Loui Eriksson’s final five seasons with the Dallas Stars, were, from an individual standpoint, very good. He played as a top liner, scored a lot of goals, and played in all but three games in that span. He was beloved, albeit by a smaller fan base.

Folks have been saying it since Game 7 against the Canadiens, and Gregory Campbell’s been hearing it since Game 7 against the Canadiens: The Merlot Line model is no longer the way to build a fourth line in the NHL.

The Bruins were the only NHL team to take a serious look at Joe Sacco after the veteran coach was let go by the Sabres at the end of the season.

Here’s a semi-far-fetched theory: What if the Bruins had next season in mind when they made their first-round pick last month?
DJ Bean
07/13/2014 - 7:44am
It’s been a while since the Bruins had three forward spots in their lineup up for grabs. The offseason is far from over and those spots may be filled one way or another, but if cap limitations require them to be filled internally, the B’s have enough candidates to create a wide-open competition.

Zane Gothberg caught himself using a cliche when describing his development this week at Bruins development camp.  "Good things take time," the 21-year-old goalie said.  That might summarize the Bruins' organizational goaltending depth perfectly. 
DJ Bean

It's bad enough for Bruins fans that the offseason came as early as it did. Now they're realizing with each passing day that it might be a pretty boring one.

At the end of the day, Peter Chiarelli determined that Jarome Iginla wasn’t worth the roster shakeup it would have taken to sign him.

With mere hours to go before the start of free agency, nothing has changed since breakup day.

The start of the NHL draft is all about optimism. If you have a first-round pick, the day is filled with ideas of hope and what wonderful things may be ahead for your team.  The Bruins had a bad day.
