Bruins hope to resign Iginla

Darren Dreger: That’s certainly the hope of the Boston Bruins and of Jarome Iginla as well. I know Peter Chiarelli, the Bruins general manager, reached out to Don Meehan from Newport Sports last week. There’s been no official back-and-forth in terms of dialogue or a negotiation and the reality is that the Bruins don’t have the tag room or the cap space to close this deal in-season.

Bruins may look to trade Subban

The Bruins shouldn’t be in need of a new No. 1 goaltender for some time, but Subban appears to be a viable candidate. Or, perhaps, a very valuable chip in a possible trade.

Bruins targeting help on defense

Some trade targets:

Possible replacements for Seidenberg

Here are a few names to keep in mind when the Bruins get serious about a veteran defenseman on the trade market:

Bruins could make a deal for a defenseman

Chiarelli could try to find a more experienced defenseman on the trade market, perhaps dangling a young blueliner to a non-contender for a player with a little more on his resume. The Sabres’ Henrik Tallinder comes to this mind, while the Rangers’ Dan Girardi, the Jets’ Mark Stuart and the Senators’ Chris Phillips — all unrestricted free agents at season’s end — have come to others’.

Peter Chiarelli not interested in trading Brad Marchand

It has not been the easiest season for Brad Marchand. The winger has struggled to produce, with five goals and nine assists in 34 games entering Thursday’s game, and has had multiple incidents of questionable judgment in the last week, with his antics in Vancouver and a boarding penalty against the Flames.

In the wake of Marchand mimicking kissing his Stanley Cup ring and then mimicking raising the Cup and kissing it during a loss to the Canucks last Saturday, his coach and general manager expressed disappointment in him.

But that doesn’t mean GM Peter Chiarelli wants him gone.


Bruins tough guy Shawn Thornton has decided to appeal his 15-game suspension for punching and injuring unsuspecting Penguins defenceman Brooks Orpik. Thornton’s agent, Anton Thun, confirmed in an email that his client was appealing

Evander Kane trade talk – Are the Bruins interested?


Something is definitely not quite right up in Winnipeg where power forward Evander Kane continues to show signs he’s unhappy with his station in NHL life. The Winnipeg power forward is essentially breaking rocks in hockey jail for the Winnipeg Jets with no chance for playoff appearances, and far out of the league spotlight toiling for a team in the Canadian hinterland.

How many games do you think Thornton should get for his hit?


Ryan Miller bolstering trade value, Olympic candidacy with strong start

If there has been a silver lining in this dreary season for the Buffalo Sabres, it has been Ryan Miller. The former Vezina Trophy winner is having a rather remarkable year between the pipes, which has kept the Sabres in a lot of games they probably wouldn’t have been otherwise. Perhaps more importantly, however, is Miller’s play has kept his trade value relatively high, which can only further aid the Sabres’ rebuild.
