Bruins Daily: Center Of No Attention; Petry To Stars?



Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins are staring down a gaping hole up the middle, and Jeff Petry may be staring at another trade very soon.

That; NHL trade rumors, news, and more in the latest BHN Daily:

Boston Bruins

Boston Hockey Now: For the first time in over 50 years, the Boston Bruins are set to enter the season without a proven No. 1 center. What does this mean for the future of general manager Don Sweeney?

Note: I originally (since edited) referred to Boston Bruins hall of famer Johnny Bucyk as a center in this column. This was the ultimate brain cramp on my part as I know better that ‘Chief’ was a left wing. There’s no excuse for a lack of fact-checking and editing, and while I am going through some health issues that have left me out of sorts lately, this should not have happened. My apologies for this embarrassing mistake.
