Neely introduced as Bruins President
By: DJ Bean

As was expected, the Bruins promoted vice president Cam Neely to president of the organization on Wednesday. Former president Harry Sinden, general manager Peter Chiarelli, and both Jeremy and Charlie Jacobs were on hand for the announcement. 

 

"There are a lot of things we want to accomplish," Neely said of the team's direction with him in charge. "First and foremost s winning the Stanley Cup and I can tell you without question that our ownership is strongly committed to bringing the Stanley Cup back to Boston."

 

Neely had 590 points in 10 seasons with the Bruins after being acquired by Sinden in 1986. 

 

"Being a player gives me another perspective," Neely said of his playing career and how it will relate to his new role. "I am a big fan of communication from coaches to players, from GMs to players, and quite frankly, ownership to players. As a player you...

Chiarelli: Bruins will not trade No. 2
By: DJ Bean

BOSTON -- Speaking at Cam Neely's introductory press conference on Wednesday, general manager Peter Chiarelli made assurances that the team will not trade down from the No. 2 spot in next Friday's NHL draft in Los Angeles and will select either Taylor Hall or Tyler Seguin. 

 

 

“I’m not moving it,” Chiarelli said of the second pick, one of two first-round selections received in the Phil Kessel trade. “We’re going to take one of those two forwards." 

 
 
Believed to have the best offensive 1-2 punch since Ilya Kovalchuk and Jason Spezza led the '01 draft, Neely said he will be thrilled with whomever the Edmonton Oilers, who pick first, ultimately pass on. 
 
 
“I’ve said this to Peter,” Neely said. “We’re in a good position. I think it’s a tougher call for Edmonton...

Hernandez: Drug issues 'in the past'

FOXBORO — Addressing the media for the first time since reports surfaced he had failed a drug test while playing at the University of Florida, rookie tight end Aaron Hernandez said those issues are “in the past,” and he’s looking forward to a new start with the Patriots.

“I’m just worried about the future and the present,” he said Wednesday after a minicamp session at Gillette Stadium. “I’ve forgotten about the past. I just keep grinding, trying to do the best I can for this team.

According to reports, Hernandez failed multiple drug tests while playing for the Florida, an assessment he later refuted. He did pass his drug test at the combine in February, which means he won’t be entered in to the league substance-abuse program.

During the draft process, he said he did not feel like he had to prove his character to teams.

“That’s the past....
