Brian Burke has been with Toronto since November, 2008. For many, he came to a team that had precious little desirable talent playing at the NHL level, and the franchise was lacking […]
The Boston Bruins’ breakup day came approximately six weeks earlier than it did the season before. During the day’s interviews and meetings, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli indicated that while he didn’t foresee any major changes, he would like to “add some pieces.” The Bruins will need bottom-six players with one or two to have the potential to move into the top-six group, if necessary. With the current situation as is for the Bruins, here’s a look at five free agent forwards that the Bruins should target.

I have a love/hate relationship with the NHL Trade Deadline. As a fan of the game, it’s exciting to see players move to different teams to help win a city a championship. After the deadline, most NHL teams are set for the home stretch of the season leading up to the playoffs. You know who is going to be a contender and you know who is going to be looking forward to game number 82.

The Montreal Canadiens have traded for long-time Toronto Maple Leaf defenceman Tomas Kaberle. In a surprising move, the 33 year-old Czech was acquired from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange […]
Chris Kelly has never scored more than 15 goals in any one of his seven seasons in the NHL. In 24 games, he scored 10 for the Boston Bruins.
The facts could go on for awhile, too.
For example, the Bruins are a perfect 8-0 this season when Kelly scores a goal, 9-1 when he registers a point. Speaking in regards to his defensive abilities, Kelly is a +16, tied for third-best in the NHL with teammate Brad Marchand. He has a shooting percentage of 23.8%, fourth highest amongst NHLers who have played 20 games or more and he’s seen his average time on ice jump from 13:32 in October to 14:45 in November.
Chris Kelly, as underrated as he may be, is actually a very crucial part of this Bruins team.
He also happens to be on the final year of his contract.
Heading into this past summer’s 2011 free agent frenzy, most of the anticipation and speculation from fans and media alike was focused on the big-name, big-money catches like Brad Richards, […]
