Maple Leafs GM denies Savard rumors
By: DJ Bean

Maple Leafs general manager Brian Burke shot down speculation that the team is trying to make a deal with Boston to reunite Phil Kessel with current Bruins center Marc Savard. 

 

"The rumor - what I read anyway - is that Boston is looking to move this player," Burke told Fan 590 radio in Toronto. "We have some options presented to us over the weekend, trade wise, that do not involve this player (Savard) that we are looking at."

 

Savard has been rumored to be on the block as of late. His contract includes a no-trade clause, but rumors have continued to swirl, including a report that he had waived the no-trade clause for a potential move to Toronto.

 

"Suffice it to say, the media are focused on one name," Burke said. "And we are looking at multiple names - not including Marc Savard."

 

Burke also stressed that he will not move defenseman...

Harangody on summer league roster
By: DJ Bean

Celtics second-round pick Luke Harangody will be a member of the C's summer league team, according to Scott Schroeder of RidiculousUpside.com. The Celtics selected the 6-foot-8, 251-pound former Notre Dame forward with the 52nd overall pick in last Thursday's NBA draft. 

 

JayCee Carroll is currently the only point guard on the team's summer league roster. The combo guard went undraft out of Utah State in 2008 but played for the Raptors' summer league team before playing the last two seasons in Europe. 

 

The shooting guards for the summer will be Rodney Green and Ryan Thompson. Green, who went undrafted last week out of La Salle, averaged 18.5 points per game as a senior. The 6-foot-6 Thompson averaged 17.2 points per game this past season as a senior at Rider University.

Recchi: Boston was top choice all along
By: DJ Bean

Newly re-signed Bruins winger Mark Recchi said Monday that he maintained good dialogue with general manager Peter Chiarelli throughout the offseason before ultimately inking a one-year, $1 million pact with the club on Friday. The 21-year veteran said that given the mutual interest in both parties to get a deal done, there "wasn't any" temptation to hit the free agent market and start over with another team. 

 

"They wanted me back and I wanted to come back," Recchi said. "…It really wasn't that hard, to be honest.

 

"If I went to another team, the coach doesn't know me," Recchi later added. "Really, I'm very comfortable in the role I've been given here and I think I've been good for them. It's just the right fit and really, I didn't see myself going anywhere else."

 

Recchi said the decision on whether to play another season had nothing to do with...

Bruins make Recchi signing official
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins announced a new one-year deal for winger Mark Recchi Monday. The deal, which is believed to be for $1 million plus bonuses, had first been reported on Friday, the same day the Bruins selected Plymouth Whalers center Tyler Seguin in the NHL draft. The 42-year-old future Hall of Famer was acquired at the trade deadline in 2009 and has totaled 59 points in 99 games with the Bruins. A veteran of 21 years, Recchi has 563 goals and 922 assists, good for 1485 points.  

 

Recchi is the fourth big re-signing for the Bruins this offseason, as they also re-upped defensemen Dennis Seidenberg and Johnny Boychuk while also retaining forward Shawn Thornton. For more on the Bruins, check the Big Bad Blog

Neely: Expect Seguin 'to make team' in 2010

Boston Bruins president Cam Neely was a guest of the Dale & Holley show Monday and talked about a variety of topics, including the selection of center Tyler Seguin with the second overall pick of the 2010 NHL Draft. Neely was asked if he expected Seguin to be the roster for Boston when the 2010 season begins.

 

"I'd be surprised if he doesn't," said Neely. "We are certainly counting on him to make our team, based on everything that I've been hearing from scouts. He should be able to make our lineup next year and it's a matter of what kind of impact he's going to have. But he should be able to make our lineup."

 

The Bruins made a trade just a few days prior to last Friday's draft, moving the 15th overall pick and veteran defenseman Dennis Wideman to the Florida Panthers in exchange for forwards Nathan Horton and Gregory Campbell. Neely feels that Horton, five times a 20-goal scorer, will be a good fit...
