The Boston Bruins are in quite the precarious spot.
On one hand, it’s easy to say that the Bruins have had a successful offseason thus far. Boston’s biggest headache on ice, Dennis Wideman, was traded away along with the 15h overall pick to the Florida Panthers for Nathan Horton, an instant upgrade on offense, and Gregory Campbell. Then, the Bruins re-signed soon-to-be free agents, Johnny Boychuk and Mark Recchi, to contracts rewarding both for their stellar play during the 2009-10 season. Finally, the Taylor versus Tyler debate was settled once the Edmonton Oilers drafted Taylor Hall first, leaving the Bruins to select centerman Tyler Seguin second overall.
Now, it gets complicated.
6:30 pm: Four hours later…we now know that Marc Savard will not dress for tonight’s game since Boston is still waiting for medical clearance from his latest neuropsych test. Bummer for Bruins fans hopeful that the center made his debut in a critical game but really, best to sit Savard until he’s fully back at 100%. The Bruins and Sabres have taken the ice for warmups–on the ice for Buffalo, who else but Thomas Vanek?
