Boston Bruins Want To Become A Deeper And More Talented Team This Offseason

With the Boston Bruins getting eliminated from the NHL playoffs this past Sunday by the Ottawa Senators all eyes have turned to the front office looking for what is next for a Black and Gold franchise that is in transition.

The first move that Don Sweeney and Cam Neely made was to name interim head coach Bruce Cassidy the full-time coach for the foreseeable future after he coached the team into the playoffs.

“The way our team responded to his message, we had an aggressive bent to our game, we scored more goals and didn’t lose any of our defensive structure or foundation,” said Sweeney. “Our penalty kill remained tops in the league and our power play got better as the year went along, and to me it spoke to the change that our team responded to, our core players responded to and our young players responded to.

The next big question and one that looms even larger is what the Bruins will do with their roster with many fans and analysts saying that their current roster is simply not good enough to win a Stanley Cup even with the incredible youth movement that they showed this past year with the development and emergence of players like Brandon Carlo and Charlie McAvoy.

“I felt very comfortable moving forward that Bruce will do a great job, and that our staff overall did a very good job. We have a lot of work to do as an organization still. We want to become a deeper, more talented team from top-to-bottom. Taking one step forward, in my opinion, is not successful. It’s a good step, but we have work to do in a lot of areas if we want to continue to get better.”

Sweeney’s comments show that he understands what the team needs, and the question is can he go and get the missing pieces. For one I believe a lot of this depth and talent happens to be within their system in players like Matt Grzelcyk, Danton Heinen, Jake DeBrusk, and Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson. I would also include McAvoy in this group but unlike the others, he has shown an immediate impact in the NHL and is already included in Sweeney’s depth talk.

The questions now becomes who will they protect in the expansion draft, who will they resign (Zdeno Chara), and who will they pursue either via the NHL draft or in free agency.

Boston Bruins Already Having Injury Problem

Bruins Injury Updates Have Begun

Today GM Don Sweeney has given an update on a few injured players.

Matt Beleskey who which is not a big deal since he might not even make the team is day-to-day with a foot contusion. This happened is the B’s last preseason game against the Montreal Canadiens

Jakub Forsbacka Karlsson is day-to-day as well with an upper-body injury that he received in the game against Detroit on September 19th. Hopefully, this is nothing because he was a kid that was slotted to make a roster spot.

Last is Torrey Krug who will be out for at least three weeks pending a re-evaluation at that time. He was hit in the jaw with the puck and suffered a non-displaced fracture. It occurred in the game against Detroit.

Also on another note, the team has sent Jack Studnicka and Kyle Keyser back to the OHL.

The biggest injury is with JFK, now some may say Krug but I think the B’s can find a replacement for him. McAvoy will most likely take over on the power play and maybe this opens the door for a guy like Rob O’Gara or Matt Grzelcyk. Other than these few hiccups Boston should be a fun team to watch this season. Especially if they stay as young as they have in camp and the preseason games.

Bruins Grab First Win Of The Preseason

Boston took on the Canadiens last night in Quebec City and came out with a victory. Last nights team was all about the kids. Unfortnitally the game was not aired on TV in Boston. the Bruins defeated Montreal 3-2.

From what I have read from people that saw the game is that the kids were very impressive. Tim Schaller, Anders Bjork, and Jesse Gabrielle were the goal scorers. As the whole, the team seems like they are in a good spot to be competitive this season. Especially with all of the prospects on the roster that are eyeing a spot in the big club.

The most impressive was last years NCAA Hobey Baker Finalist Anders Bjork. Bjork scored his first goal in a Bruins uniform last night. Also, the word on the street is that his chemistry with the team is growing. Look for him to grab a top-six spot on the roster heading into the season.

Here is Anders Bjork on his first goal in. A very hockey guy answer:
