Time For Bruins to Make Some Moves

The Bruins at the end of the first month find themselves struggling at 6-6. A far cry from the success of the past three seasons that included a game seven loss to the Black Hawks in the Stanley Cup finals two years ago. Not to mention a 54 -19 record of a year ago and the president cups champions for best record in the league. Gone are Jerome Iginla’s 30 goals.Only to be replaced by rookie Ryan Spooner who gets criticized by head coach Claude Julian for not playing  two way hockey.The power play ranks 13th in the league with a 7 goal in 32 attempt for a 21.9%. David Krejci is off to a decent start.The Bruins however  are 809,000 dollars over the cap space. Defenseman Torey Krug is out  for three weeks along with veteran Zedeno Chara.That forced the Bruins to recall Joe Morrow and David Warsofsky from Providence.With twenty one players under contract that does not leave GM Peter Chiarelli many options. Before the start of the season he had to deal defenseman Johnny Boychuck  and his salary to the Islanders. In that deal the B’s got two seconds and the Flyers third. That may attract some teams but for what? For now the Bruins only option is a wait and see approach and hope the points can increase. Its’s a good opportunity for Warsofsky, Morrow and Zach Trotman to get their feet wet. The trading deadline is four months away which gives the Bruins time to develop their young players.Don’t expect any major moves this year with the position the Bruins are in salary cap wise.
