The Optional Skate EP 6: Bruins’ Free Agency (So Far)

Free agency is underway and the Bruins have done stuff. What kind of stuff? How did Sweeney do? Who is making his return to Boston? Why? Where in Canada does Bree live exactly? Why is Robb having so many topsy turvy feels about David Backes? Why is Pez so damn good at jokes???? You asked and […]

The Optional Skate Ep 5: Post 2016 NHL Entry Draft with Kirk Luedeke

The 2016 NHL draft has come and gone and there are so so many questions from the weekend. For example, when could we see Charlie McAvoy in Boston? Trent who?

Bruins’ Buy Out Dennis Seidenberg. Prove Jesus Is Real.

The Boston Bruins have done the unthinkable and bought out Dennis Seidenberg. Here are the details per General Fanager: So the Bruins are going to save a nice chunk of change this year and a little bit next year. This leads me to believe that something major has to be coming down the pipeline. Seidenberg […]

Stop. The Bruins Aren’t Going To Offer Sheet Jacob Trouba.

Jesus Christ. The offseason is such an exciting, wonderful and shitty time to be a hockey fan. There is so much bullshit thrown around during the time between the end of the season and the start of free agency that it will make your head spin. The rule of thumb that I like to live […]

Will Connolly meet the expectations that made him a #6 overall pick?

Bruins’ Qualifying Offers and Brett Connolly

Yesterday the Bruins had until 5 o’clock pm EST to send qualifying offers to their restricted free agents. The players who were qualified were: Torey Krug, Colin Miller, Joe Morrow, Alexander Khokhlachev, Brian Ferlin and Chris Casto. Shockingly Brett Connolly and Landon Ferraro were not extended offers and will become unrestricted free agents on July […]

Steven Stamkos To Boston Is A Stupid Pipe Dream

Welcome to the offseason. I logged in to Twitter this morning to see this hot, steamy take sitting in my mentions: This, obviously, threw Bruins fans into a tizzy. The idea of having Steven Stamkos, a top 5 NHL player, in a Bruins sweater is an incredible one. Think about it: Marchand – Bergeron – […]

Bruins Put The Ass In Asset Management

So this happened today: I believe in what Renaud Lavoie has to say. He’s pretty spot on when it comes to his hockey stuff and if this tweet is true, it is just another blunder in what seems like endless amounts since the 2013 Stanley Cup Finals wrapped up. If you wanted to make the […]

Boston Bruins Sign Peter Cehlarik

Here’s Cehlarik’s stats from eliteprospects.com: Kirk Luedeke, a DOY favorite (and you can catch him on our latest episode of ‘The Optional Skate’) tweeted this when someone asked about Cehlarik:

Alexander Khokhlachev

Mixed Feelings With Alexander Khokhlachev’s Departure

I’ve never been a massive Alexander Khokhlachev guy but I was aware of the skill-set he brought to the table. He can carry the puck well, he’s a good passer and he can score goals. When he was drafted in 2011 (ahead of Brandon Saad, by the way), many predicted that he could crack the […]
