What the Bruins Need to Be Successful

The Boston Bruins are having a strange season. Strange in the sense that they’re considered a “struggling” team even with a top-five record in the NHL and strange in the sense that their once-sound defensive game is suddenly filled with cracks.

In conversations, columns and general musings, it has been difficult to classify this team. The Bruins have yet to really dominate a game but in the same breath, they haven’t exactly been bowled over either. They’ve made some pretty incredible comebacks but yet can’t hold a third period lead at times. Some players have looked elite at times while managing to disappear completely during stretches as well. We’ve been waiting for the team to take it to the next gear and finally break through for 30 games now. They haven’t.

It’s bad but it’s also not bad. Strange, right?

With the trade deadline less than two weeks away, it’s imperative that Peter Chiarelli add to the Bruins roster because the current team isn’t going to do much in the playoffs. But what does the team need to be successful? Glad you asked.

Chiarelli’s complacency in free agency could further harm the Bruins power-play

Since July 1, 27 out of the 30 NHL teams have signed new players to their roster via free agency.

Out of the remaining three, the Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings kept their team intact and re-signed pivotal playoff performer, Dustin Penner while the Edmonton Oilers added some key parts prior to July 1 by signing Justin Schultz and drafting Nail Yakupov first overall in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

The Boston Bruins, on the other hand, have been entirely inactive.

But is the reliance on the current roster going to eventually harm the Bruins along with their biggest downfall last season: the power-play?
