Boston Bruins general manager Don Sweeney is not ‘overly concerned’ that he still hasn’t locked up David Pastrnak to an extension.
The Chicago Blackhawks aren’t close to considering trading their best two players.
More on that, Boston Bruins and NHL news, as well as NHL trade rumors in the latest BHN Bruins Daily:
Boston Bruins general manager Don Sweeney isn’t concerned over the fact that star winger David Pastrnak is in training camp without a contract extension. He’s also ready for the heat that’s coming from media and fans.
Speaking of David Pastrnak, as my partner-in-crime at BHN, Joe Haggerty, while it’s both good and bad news for Sweeney if Pastrnak has a monster season, it’s definitely bad news for Bruins’ opponents.
Boston Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery thanked the team culture for making his transition into the Bruins organization so seamless. That culture is something he will lean on heavily this season.
In the final installment of BHN’s Countdown To Boston Bruins Camp, Haggs profiled Bruins captain Patrice Bergeron.
