Torey Krug and Reilly Smith: Their Situation Explained.

Redditor/Bruins fan Crazy Canucklehead posted this on the Bruins subreddit the other day and I felt it was to good to not share. With his permission (right NESN?!), here is his post, uncut. Smith and Krug are interesting cases. They’re considered RFA’s, but don’t have any of the benefits that RFA’s have (No arbitration or the ability to sign offer sheets). It all comes down...

The Boston Bruins still have a couple of months before training camp and preparations for the 2014-15 season kick into high gear, and at least one Bruins player is making the most of his summer vacation. Boston winger Brad Marchand checked in on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon, and he did so by tweeting a picture of his new “pet” turtle he caught during some sort of summer adventure...

Grading Boston Bruins’ free agency

It has been two weeks since NHL free agency began and most of the top players who were on the market have already been signed, including former Boston Bruin Jarome Iginla, who inked a three year, $16-million contract with the Colorado Avalanche.  The Bruins had less significant free agent departures as well, including tough-guy Shawn Thornton and backup goalie Chad Johnson.  Despite...

Torey Krug On Bruins Starting Playoffs: ‘It’s Like Christmas Right Now’

Torey Krug is so excited to begin his second playoff run with the Boston Bruins that he compared it to Christmas morning. If Friday night’s Game 1 wasn’t enough reason for a young player like Krug to be full of anticipation, he’s also going up against the team he grew up loving in the Detroit Red Wings. Krug, a Livonia, Mich, native, remembers people in his neighborhood honking...

More on the Rangers signing of Mat Bodie & the comparison to Torey Krug

Yesterday, the Rangers signed Union College defenseman Mat Bodie. At first glance, I really like the signing. Well, let me clarify. I like the idea of the signing. After all, Bodie was a standout on the best squad in college hockey this season and the Rangers organizationally have woefully few puck moving defensemen. Plus (and I will keep beating this drum) the Rangers really need...

Torey Krug Fights David McIntyre in Loss to Red Wings, Shows Off Seldom-Seen Pugilistic Side (Video)

Torey Krug isn’t exactly known as a fighter. Standing just 5-foot-8 and 170 pounds, the Bruins defenseman isn’t exactly a heavyweight, either. On Thursday night, however, the puck-moving, power-play specialist showed off a different side of his game seldom seen to this point in his NHL career. After getting into a shoving match with Detroit’s David McIntyre in the corner,...

Boston Bruins: Torey Krug: Is he the real deal?

Every hockey season there always seems to be a younger player who rises above what’s expected of him, and performs at a level that people couldn’t see coming. This past season for the Bruins, that player would be Torey Krug, who was thrown into the fire of the post-season, and took the league by storm.  Did he find himself making rookie mistakes throughout his run? There is...
