Gregory Campbell is okay with moving to the wing to take over Shawn Thornton‘s spot. So, it comes down to who the Bruins want to put in as center of the new ‘Maroon Line’. Do the Bruins move (demote seems the wrong word here) Chris Kelly to keep a high experience level on the fourth line, or do they bring in new blood? Ryan Spooner might be ready, as well as Alexander Khokhlachev. It will come down to how well they do in training camp (and if Peter Chiarelli doesn’t send any one or more of these players somewhere else).

I’ve been a center for the last four years, but I’m not going to [demand anything]. I want to be in a spot where I can complement other guys. If they throw me with whoever it is and I have to play wing and we’re a successful line, then so be it. That’s where I want to be. I have played center for a long time, so it may take me a few games, but I’m sure I can do it.” – Bruins forward Gregory Campbell

Nearly the entire current Bruins roster (as well as former Bruins Rich Peverley, Tyler Seguin, and Andrew Ference) have taken on the Ice Bucket challenge to battle ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). Got to leave it to the fair and balanced staff (who made the remark that ‘rats can swim’ remark about Brad Marchandat Puck Daddy to watch all these Bruins players do this to raise awareness and money for charity and completely supplant their good deeds by putting Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby as the ‘star’ of this charity project.  (Well, that’s two bonehead calls from their staff in as many days.)

What was the other one you ask? A small matter of being unable to understand basic statistics and throw off an opinion that had no merit. Why? Just another writer jumping on the bandwagon of hate for the Bruins organization.

No word on how long the NHL will suspend the ice and water for causing Crosby mild discomfort.

On a side note, the challenge has reached the front office in Boston. At the moment, the challenge currently remains open for Bruins head coach Claude Julien, and Bruins alternate governor Charlie Jacobs.

While we’re on the topic of NHL superstars, Alex Ovechkin doesn’t like the plus/minus stat. It’s not like it shows his glaring deficiency in playing two way hockey. Perhaps it was one of the reasons the Washington Capitals didn’t make the playoffs last season.
