A look at Bruins free agents: Tommy Wingels

Source | 2 days ago.

It was certainly a statement of sorts in the first round of the playoffs when Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy selected veteran forward Tommy Wingels for the Game 6 lineup against the Maple Leafs with a chance to close them out in Toronto. Cassidy inserted Wingels on to the second line and dropped Rick Nash to the third line for that game and in doing so, showed plenty of trust in a player that had just arrived in Boston at the trade deadline. As it happened, Wingels wasn't much of a factor in a road playoff game that the Bruins dropped before ultimately coming through in Game 7 at home.

Haggerty: Bruins facing a big question about their top line this summer

Source | 7 days ago.

There were myriad questions facing the Bruins at the closure of their Stanley Cup playoff run in the second round against the Tampa Bay Lightning. It begs the question, should the Bruins keep their dominant top line of Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak together moving forward, or bust it up in the interest of balancing the offense a little more up front?

Haggerty: Could trade talks be cooking between the B's and Oilers?

The Boston Bruins will be no different given some of the improvements that clearly need to be made after a second-round exit from the Stanley Cup playoffs, an exit that highlighted areas of the B's roster that need to be better. It will be perhaps too much of a challenge for B's general manager Don Sweeney to accomplish everything on the "to do" list and uncover both a second line right wing sniper and a top-4, left-shot defenseman over the next few months.

Brian Gionta’s short stint with Bruins is over

After competing in the 2018 Winter Olympics, veteran forward Brian Gionta signed a one-year deal to close out the NHL regular season with the Boston Bruins. On Thursday, Bruins GM Don Sweeney admitted that Gionta, Paul Postma and Kenny Agostino were not going to be offered contracts for next season.

Bruins moving on from Gionta, Agostino and Postma; Czarnik may hit free agency

While none of them register as anything remotely surprising, the Bruins have made final decisions on several of their looming free agent players. Kenny Agostino, Paul Postma and Brian Gionta have all been informed by the Bruins that they won't be offered contracts for next season, according to B's general manager Don Sweeney, and so that ends their stint with the Black and Gold. "We've had some preliminary talks with all the [free agent] players, and just trying to sift through the term aspect in some of those conversations," said Sweeney to reporters at the NHL scouting combine in Buffalo.

Morning Skate: Look at all the ex-Bruins scoring in the Stanley Cup Final

Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I'm reading, while ex-Bruins Colin Miller, Reilly Smith and Brett Connolly all scored goals in a wild Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final. It certainly wasn't a banner evening for Bruins GM Don Sweeney watching three players score that he pretty much discarded through expansion draft, trade or out-and-out release. Should the Bruins have protected Colin Miller instead of Kevan Miller in the expansion draft while rolling the dice that Vegas wouldn't have taken him?

A look at Bruins in free agency: Rick Nash

By all accounts, the trade for power forward Rick Nash at the deadline should have worked out splendidly for the Bruins. Nash, 33, is a proven NHL goal-scorer, a skilled big body. Nash certainly looked as if he was going to be an impact player for the Black and Gold when he posted a couple of goals and a whopping 23 shots on net in his first four games after getting traded from the New York Rangers for Ryan Spooner, a 2018 first-round pick and Ryan Lindgren among other assets.

Haggerty: A proposal to address Stanley Cup playoffs beset by bad officiating

Nobody could blame Bruins President Cam Neely if he was more than a little salty after the level of officiating in the Stanley Cup playoffs this season. The Hall of Fame player and B's executive watched some truly bizarre officiating during Boston's two rounds of the playoffs prior to them getting eliminated in Game 5 of the second round against the Tampa Bay Lightning. "It does need to get addressed because the game has gotten faster," said Neely, of the consistently questionable calls in the playoffs.

A look at Bruins in free agency: Anton Khudobin

Source | 27 days ago.

It was a bit eyebrow-raising when Bruins team president Cam Neely last week mentioned backup goaltending as a priority for the Bruins on their offseason shopping list. The assumption was that the Bruins would find common ground with looming free agent Anton Khudobin after a stellar season in which he played 31 games as Tuukka Rask's understudy. The ability to play well and play relatively often is a mandatory one with the Bruins as the formula for team success includes a plan that gives their No. 1 in Rask ample physical and mental rest in the regular season.
