  MIDDLETON – If roster turnover is healthy, would that make a lack of turnover unhealthy?

Call it complacent, call it too comfortable or call it unheard of in today's day and age. The Bruins could -- and very well may -- enter the season without a single veteran pickup. GM Peter Chiarelli likes what he has, and assuming he wasn't throwing the media for a loop on Tuesday, that's the way it's going to be.

When will Daniel Paille have an offseason? He may have one every year, but Paille’s certainly kept busy in each of the last two summers. The last offseason was jubilation, and this one could be doom and gloom.

With the collective bargaining agreement set to expire on Sept. 15, the talks between the owners and the NHLPA (led by Donald Fehr), could be lengthy. The owners decided to open with a joke.

The Bruins are set to open their sixth annual development camp on Thursday, and fans who are in the area will get a chance to check out the likes of Dougie Hamilton, Malcolm Subban, Jared Knight, Ryan Spooner and Alexander Khokhlachev, among others.

Tyler Seguin will always have a special place in his heart for the NHL draft. After all, it was just two short years ago that the draft defined the then-18-year-old Plymouth Whalers star center.

  The late, great Terry Kath once sang that he wanted to be free. There aren't many Bruins who can identify with that, thanks to what Peter Chiarelli has cultivated in Boston.

On the same night that another team raised the Stanley Cup, the Bruins made two moves to keep members of their Cup-winning team in Boston.

For all of the talk of Tim Thomas leaving his teammates high and dry, he sure did come up big for the guy who sits next to him in the Bruins’ dressing room.

If you’re trying to figure out what Tim Thomas is thinking or doing, save yourself the headache and just give up. Take the good with the bewildering.

It's always something with Tim Thomas. 
DJ Bean
04/26/2012 - 3:55am
The Bruins sat in their dressing room baffled by their fate. It was what you’d expect from a team that had just been eliminated: quiet guys, short sentences and the general sense that players were preoccupied with thinking about what could have been.

Two of the most intriguing words in all of sports are “if” and “necessary.”  If necessary, a series can go five, six or seven games. If necessary, a team that’s a win away from advancing might need two or three games to do it.
