Bruins Wrap: PTO Ideas For Bruins; Sullivan Extended; NHL Rumors



Boston Bruins

Should the Boston Bruins look into signing defensemen P.K. Subban or Keith Yandle to professional tryouts if they remain unsigned?

That and more in the latest BHN Bruins Wrap:

Boston Bruins

With their lack of experience on the blue line for the first 1-2 months of the 2022-23 NHL regular season, would it make sense for the Boston Bruins to at least give a veteran defenseman like Milton, MA native Keith Yandle or P.K. Subban a professional tryout?

Note to Boston Bruins fans immediately shooting this idea down because of their hate for Subban or thoughts on the player and due to salary cap concerns, a PTO doesn’t cost NHL teams anything against the cap.

PGH: The Pittsburgh Penguins signed two-time Stanley Cup champion head coach, former Boston Bruins head coach, and Marshfield, MA native Mike Sullivan to a three-year extension. Some could say this was a surprise since Sullivan’s contract was set to expire at the end of the 2023-24 season, but Sullivan is now locked in through the conclusion of the 2026-27 season.

No to pk Take Clifton over the high priced recently expired Subban any day of the week. The bruins must learn from their mistakes which are too many to name and too numerous to remember, however there are a few Hayes, Belesky, F-O-L-I-G-N-O!!! Nick of course one of zombies on the walking dead, but slower.

The last player the Bruins need is Suban. Why?


Or. Yandle for that matter. Soft as a tub of margarine
