Marc Savard getting traded in 2015 is ridiculous

Funny … After I went on about how the Boston Bruins were driving their fans insane, they actually had a pretty good week. They traded Martin Jones, who they got in the Milan Lucic deal, for a 2016 first round pick and a prospect. And on Wednesday, they made a seemingly innocuous trade when then sent Reilly Smith to Florida in exchange for Jimmy Hayes. It’s a fairly even trade...

Marc Savard Played Crucial Role In Bruins’ Resurgence To Contender Status

Marc Savard’s tenure with the Bruins ended Wednesday when he was traded with Reilly Smith to the Florida Panthers in a deal that sent Jimmy Hayes to Boston. The move marked the end of a nine-year run for Savard with the Bruins. Of course, the last four years have been difficult for the 37-year-old forward. He hasn’t played since January of the 2010-11 campaign after suffering...

Boucher: 2015 NHL Draft Road Trip

When it was announced that the 2015 NHL Draft was going to be held at the BB&T Center, I knew I wanted to be there. It’s a reasonable drive from Tampa and would offer the opportunity to experience a different kind of NHL event. The Florida Panthers had the honor of hosting this year’s draft at the BB&T Center and what a great experience it was. The Panthers and their...

Florida Panthers sign Jaromir Jagr to one-year contract extension

On Feb. 26, the New Jersey Devils traded legendary forward Jaromir Jagr to the Florida Panthers. While at the time it seemed like this trade didn’t make much sense for either team, it is safe to say that the Panthers have benefited greatly from adding Jagr to their lineup. Earlier in the season, I wrote an article about the NJ Devils trading Jaromir Jagr to the Florida Panthers...

Report: Odds are 'pretty good' Jagr stays with the Panthers

At age 43, Jaromir Jagr is showing no signs of slowing down. In the final year of his current contract, it’s ridiculous that we’re all discussing where he’ll play next instead of planning his retirement ceremony. A few rumors have popped up regarding the next chapter in Jagr’s career, but the most recent report indicates he’ll be back in Florida in 2015-16. #FlaPanthers...

Florida Panthers forward Jimmy Hayes was on fire earlier this season, and for a large part of the season, he was the second-leading goal-scorer on the team. His drive, skating, speed and aggression developed from offseason improvements, and he was making a significant contribution to the team.
