The Boston Bruins are working with a rotating seven defenseman roster. While this can be frustrating for some players who sit out on occasion, it does give the Bruins several strong advantages moving forward in the season. Whether it’s Dougie Hamilton or Adam McQuaid sitting out a game, those players come back from that healthy scratch with a goal in their very next game. See how the system is working for the Black and Gold here. (Boston Bruins)

Our associates over at Editor in Leaf give a very good review of Bobby Orr‘s autobiography, Orr: My Story. This sentence of the review summed up a lot of local opinions on the book. “This was not a fourth-liner looking to cash in on locker room stories, or drop bombshells on any controversy that may squeeze in a few more nickels. This was a guy that loves hockey telling his story.” Read the whole review here. (Editor in Leaf)

Tuukka Rask has had a great run so far this season for the Boston Bruins. He’s in the top five in all the categories, and looks like he will be a contender for the Vezina trophy this year. He’s also trying to aim for Olympic gold as well, and the folks over at Bleacher Report spell out how his chance to make the Finnish Olympic team will be directly tied to the next few weeks.

The Philadelphia Flyers are off to one of their worst starts ever as a hockey club. They fired their head coach Peter Laviolette, and have problems from cap issues to player confidence. In a recent poll of Flyers fans, ninety three percent want their suffering general manager, Paul Holmgren to be the next to go. For the moment, Flyers management are sticking with him, and only the Hockey Gods know why. (Puck Daddy)
