The Bruins are as front-loaded with goal-scorers as they’ve ever been in the Peter Chiarelli regime. The guys they have aren’t the 40-goal type, but they’re just the type that Chiarelli wants.

Jordan Caron made the Bruins out of training camp in 2010 and played on the second line for part of his first professional season. Three years later merely making the team is almost a bigger feat.

Jordan Caron doesn’t want to be passed over again. It’s hard to blame him, but it’s also hard to see it not happening.

Carl Soderberg traveled about 3,700 miles west to come to Boston. Now he’s moved over just a little more to stay in Boston. Goodbye center, hello left wing.  It’s the final piece in what has been a long stretch of change for Soderberg, and now, after joining a new team late last season, he has his new line and his new position.

Last year at the trade deadline, the thinking was that the Bruins needed to add a potential top-six right wing for two reasons: first, to bolster the lineup, and second, as insurance for Nathan Horton, who had seen his previous two seasons end early due to injury -- specifically, concussions.

An NHL season is near and nobody knows for sure what Chris Kelly’s line is going to look like. Sound familiar? 
DJ Bean
09/13/2013 - 4:55pm
Chris Kelly may have been joking, but there was some truth to his reaction when Carl Soderberg entered the Bruins' dressing room to chat with the media. "Carl!" Kelly said. "Good to see you!"

You can probably put the "which defenseman goes to the AHL?" talk on hold for a little bit.

Ten years ago, Patrice Bergeron forced the hockey world to learn his name a lot earlier than it was supposed to.

LOWELL -- As Gregory Campbell stood on the field of LeLacheur Park, chatting before Milan Lucic's annual softball game, a young fan from the stands screamed, "Campbell, you're my hero!" The fan probably wasn't talking about Campbell's two-way play or his willingness to drop the gloves against bigger guys, a

After what he calls a lost season, Jared Knight is willing to go to pretty extreme measures to give himself the best shot to reach the NHL. Just ask the 15-20 pounds he left somewhere in an Ottawa gym or rink this summer.

WILMINGTON -- The average fan might not even know which offensive position he plays, but if anyone knows anything about Loui Eriksson, it’s that he’s considered underrated.

WILMINGTON -- If all goes according to plan, Bobby Robins will be in the NHL the next time he reads “The Catcher in the Rye.” 
DJ Bean

The Bruins are going to be very good this season. Maybe they'll be better than last season, but remember, better does not mean more successful. 
DJ Bean
07/14/2013 - 1:03pm
WILMINGTON -- It's been two years since the Bruins made Anthony Camara a surprise third-round pick, and as the 19-year-old leaves behind an OHL career in which he went from a seldom-scoring agitator to a frequently suspended 36-goal-scorer and heads for the AHL, he isn't forgetting his goal.

Eight years is a long, long time, but the Bruins just can’t get enough of Patrice Bergeron. 
DJ Bean

Tuukka Rask took a gamble last season by taking a one-year deal. Now the Bruins are the ones taking a gamble, but the stakes are much higher.

WILMINGTON – When Malcolm Subban watched the Bruins come two wins away from winning the Stanley Cup, he was bummed out.

Loui Eriksson has a lot of things going for him as he comes to the Bruins, and the biggest one is pretty simple: He’s a sure thing.

Peter Chiarelli has done more than remake the right side of Boston’s offense.

Tyler Seguin wasn’t a Bruin, and now he isn’t a Bruin. 
DJ Bean
07/03/2013 - 12:03pm
The Bruins have some holes in their lineup, and they're on the right side of the offense.

“He’s maturing before our eyes. I feel that with the hard work that he’s shown us and the willingness to put in that hard work and continue to improve, I think the sky is the limit for Tyler.”

Having good players is slowly but surely catching up to the Bruins.

Tuukka Rask is going to get all sorts of money.  “I think he’ll get two, 2 1/2 [million dollars],” Brad Marchand said at Wednesday’s breakup day.
