    Bruins Offseason Thread

    I think you are right. The roster to start the season is set. Coyle is 28 — if he can get back somehow to being the player he was in Minnesota four or five years ago, that would still be short of Krejci but it’d be a big help. Time for Coyle to step up. My guess is that we’ll see Coyle, Haula &...

    Krejci heading back to Czech Republic

    15 seasons, more than 1,000 games including the playoffs, first-line center on the team that won the Cup. Always prepared, always a leader, tougher than people thought. He had a great career with the Bruins and was always a pleasure to watch. Heck of a hockey player. Good for him and his...

    Bruins sign Tomas Nosek

    Just about $10m in cap space as of this moment, according to CapFriendly. If Krejci and Rask sign, I’m not at all sure how much of that cap space will be used up. We’re pretty much done with free agency now and I assume Sweeney is starting to look at trades. The roster as it is set now is a...

    Tomas Nosek signed as 4th liner. 2/$1.75 AAV. Don’t know much about him other than that he’s big.

    Bruins sign Derek Forbort (3 x $3M)

    I agree with this. The Bruins need size and experience on the back line, so adding an “older, bigger but less mobile” version of Lauzon at 3/$3AAV fills an important need at reasonable cost. The top AHL D men — Zboril, Vak — are plenty mobile, as are McAvoy, Gryz, Reilly and Clifton.

    Your top "forgot he was a Red Sox"

    Rob Deer had 143 ABs in 1993. He hit .196 with 7 HRs and 46Ks. It was the end of his MLB career.

    NEWC - The Semis

    Brutal turnover by Coleman and a snipe by Beauvillier. Game 7 coming up.

    Bruins Offseason Thread

    Hall, Rask and Krejci all told reporters today that money isn’t their top priority in negotiating their next contracts. From his quotes it sounds as though there’s a chance Krejci won’t be in the NHL next year. “You guys write a lot that I always wanted to play in Czech, finish my career in...

    Thanks, IdiotKicker and TheNapkin. I may be over-valuing Reilly. I’ve been thinking more and more the Bruins need to get bigger on D.

    I’m curious why you say right up front you wouldn’t sign Reilly. He was one of the Bruins whose playoff performance topped his regular season performance, and he was very good with Carlo as a 2nd pair D man. Counting stat: Reilly was +3 in the 11 games of the playoffs. Every other defenseman was...

    6/9–Bruins at Islanders Game 6–Not Done Yet

    Cassidy didn’t get out-coached. Trotz’s players played their system well and executed their game plans. Cassidy’s didn’t. And once Carlo was out, Trotz had the superior D corps.
