Bruins season tickets sold out
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins announced via press release Monday that full season ticket packages for the 2010-11 season are now sold out, an encouraging sign late in an offseason that has been very busy for the Bruins.

 

Though full packages throughout the loge and balcony are no longer available, some packages remain an option for interested fans. Half-season (21 games), 10-game and five-game plans in addition to Premium Club memberships remain available. 

 

Tyler Seguin and Nathan Horton likely have been selling points for fans, as the Bruins look to improve what was the worst offense in the NHL. The defensive core has largely been kept in tact, with Dennis Wideman shipped to Florida in exchange for Horton. Both Tim Thomas and Tuukka Rask remain on the roster, rounding out a team that on paper has seen only upgrades over the summer.

King on D&H: Brady contract will get done
By: Jay Asser

NFL analyst Peter King of Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports joined the Dale & Holley show on Monday morning to discuss Tom Brady's contract situation, comparing it to Peyton Manning's contract situation, and the rumblings that Brady would possibly hold out.

 

"I never was very worried about Brady being a holdout or a guy who didn't come in on time, he's just really not that kind of guy," King said. "But I don't think it's going to be a good situation if these talks stall and they don't go anywhere. I do think they're going to go somewhere and I think this deal is going to get done at some point this year."

 

King also touched on the growing optimism on the Jets with their new acquisitions this upcoming season. King feels that New York improved, but questions if they can come together as a team.

 

"Considering I picked Miami ahead of them...

Source: Jays want elite prospect for Downs

According to a major league source, the Blue Jays have been aiming high in the sort of prospect return that they’ve sought in exchange for left-handed reliever Scott Downs, in whom a number of clubs are believed to be interested. The source said that Toronto has been asking for one of the top two or three prospects in the farm systems of interested clubs.

 

In the case of the Red Sox, that would be consistent with a suggestion by Peter Gammons on WEEI earlier this month that the Jays asked for shortstop Jose Iglesias in exchange for Downs.

 

With Hideki Okajima (3-3, 5.81) enmeshed in his worst year as a Red Sox, Boston’s need for a middle reliever (especially a left-handed one) is apparent. The 34-year-old Downs (4-5, 2.41) — whose 2.29 ERA since the start of the 2007 season is the third best among southpaws with at least 100 innings pitched over that span, trailing only Arthur Rhodes (2.10) and Billy...

Wheeler camp in Toronto for arbitration
By: DJ Bean

A source with knowledge of the situation confirmed to WEEI.com Monday that Matt Keator, the agent for Bruins right wing Blake Wheeler, is already in Toronto in preparation for his client's arbitration hearing with the team Tuesday. The source added that Wheeler will be flying in sometime Monday. 

 

Should the sides head to arbitration, as is heavily expected at this point, it will be the first such occurrence since 2006, when the Bruins declined David Tanabe's $1.275 million award. 

 

Wheeler, who has missed just one game in his two-year career, scored 18 goals and chipped in 20 assists for 38 points last season. His sophomore stats remain overshadowed by his rookie performance of 21-24-45 totals in '08-'09.

Schefter on D&C: CBA issues slow Brady deal

ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter joined the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to talk about Tom Brady's contract talks. Schefter is much more optimistic than others who have indicated the QB is unhappy with the Patriots. Schefter said he believes Brady is on schedule to be signed before Colts quarterback Peyton Manning.

 

"On the basis of everything I've heard this weekend, it sounds like the Patriots and Tom Brady are furthest along at this point in time," Schefter said. "It sounds like something definitely can get wrapped up here this summer." Added Schefter: "I did not get the sense that it is imminent, but I did get the sense it's certainly possible in the next few weeks."

 

Schefter said he believes concerns about the collective bargaining agreement and how it will affect the salary cap are slowing down the process.

 

"Were if not for the...
