Boston Bruins Updates
Some of the latest Boston Bruins’ headlines have explored the Jarome Iginla subject further, talked a bit about the B’s NHL Draft prospects, and also denied the “Martin Brodeur to Bruins” rumors.
Al Daniels’ Bleacher Report slideshow from yesterday delved into three thoughts surrounding the Bruins right now. The first idea is related to the low salary cap, concluding that the Bruins must pad their ailing salary cap with moves, if the organization wants to keep Iginla in Beantown. The David Krejci-David Pastrnak parallel comes up, as well as a brief informational on Boston’s new front-office man, executive director of player personnel John Ferguson.
More on Jarome Iginla, NHL.com reported that the Minnesota Wild, hoping to be a landing destination for Iginla, have contacted the 37-year-old veteran and also met with Thomas Vanek.
NESN.com released information that Jarome Iginla desires a two-year contact, but he will accept a one-year deal from only the Bruins.
Checking the Marty Brodeur rumblings, Joe Haggerty of CSNNE.com relayed news that sources speaking about the goalie’s interest in the B’s were incorrect. The slim salary cap and Nicholas Svedberg’s one-way agreement basically generated a doubtful Brodeur scenario for the Bruins.
Qualifying offers to 11 restricted free agents have been finalized by Peter Chiarelli, as the MetroWest Daily News and WEEI.com announced that Jordan Caron was given an offer.
