BRUINS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Boston Bruins Let Benning go Bye-Bye

What the Bruins got with David Backes

David Backes is not your normal, everyday NHL star player. Through his 10-year career in the league, all as a member of the St. Louis Blues, Backes played nearly every game. He registered his fair share of goals and assists, but his greater achievements were in categories usually reserved for someone who never sniffs a 30-goal season. Backes has topped 90 penalty minutes in a season...

2016-17 Fantasy Season Outlook: Boston Bruins

The 2015-16 Boston Bruins came much closer to the postseason than many in the hockey world gave them credit for. With a 42-31-9 record, they finished with 93 points and just three points shy of the second wild card spot in the Eastern Conference. This season will be much of the same for the Bruins who will have to bite and claw their way to the postseason. While it will affect the...

2016-17 Season Preview: Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins are a franchise in limbo. Last offseason, they made a bunch of questionable moves that were focused on the future; I'd argue they made them worse in the future but they certainly made them worse in the short term. On the other hand, their current core, especially the forwards, played at an extraordinary level to keep them in the playoff hunt. Unfortunately for...

Is Marchand worth the money he’s reportedly asking for?
