Bruins Daily: Could Toews Replace Bergeron? Will DeBrusk Stay?



Boston Bruins

Boston Bruins captain Patrice Bergeron will either re-sign with the Bruins or retire. Could Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews replace him if he retires?

Will Jake DeBrusk rescind his trade request from the Boston Bruins?

That, trade and free agent rumors and the latest Stanley Cup Playoffs news in the BHN Bruins Daily:

Boston Bruins

Patrice Bergeron has confirmed to the media that he will either retire from the NHL or re-up with the Boston Bruins.

If the Boston Bruins captain decides to retire, could Jonathan Toews serve as a (EXPENSIVE!) stop gap at center until the Bruins figure out a longer term solution?

Given how he played and the faith Boston Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy showed in him down the stretch and in the playoffs, could Jake DeBrusk rescind his trade request?

Boston Bruins defenseman Matt Grzelcyk is set for offseason shoulder surgery and that should serve as another reminder to fans and media that jump all over players for their on-ice performance in the playoffs. Chances are, every single player in the playoffs is battling a nagging and sometimes serious injury by the time the Stanley Cup Playoffs start and they should be applauded for trying to tough it out for their team.

Did Anton Blidh request a trade from the Boston Bruins?

Can we just change the Frank J. Selke Trophy to The Patrice Begeron-Cleary Trophy if the Boston Bruins center wins the award for a record-breaking fifth time?
