While the 2013-2014 Maple Leafs had some significant defensive issues which probably cost them a potential playoff birth, it got me thinking about the kind of defensive player that the current […]

Buyouts are swelling the ranks of a barren 2013 NHL free agent class, as teams have begun trimming their fat to free up salary and roster space and comply with […]
By Wayne Whittaker, Boston Bruins Correspondent With names like Jarome Iginla, Martin St. Louis and Jaromir Jagr being casually tossed into conversation around Boston, it can be easy to get […]
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.

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?
New Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin has been fairly active regarding the signing and the re-signing of key players for the organization in the past 72 hours. The rookie […]
The NHL free-agency is just days away, and at this moment every NHL team is likely going over how they will approach this, ever important, time of the off-season. Will […]
Looking at the Montreal Canadiens’ defensive depth chart this off-season, it is difficult to decide whether the team boasts an embarrassment of riches…or just plain embarrassment. With so many question […]
