Felger and Massarotti were joined by Boston Bruins president Cam Neely to talk about the Bruins’ hot start, trading Tim Thomas, and their power play adjustments.
“We are pleased but it’s early in the season so we’re not going to get ahead of ourselves just yet,” Neely said of the team’s 8-1-1 start, which is the best in franchise history.
Neely explained the main reason for trading Tim Thomas was in order to clear up cap space and provide flexibility for any moves the team may want to make. He did say his memories of Thomas’ tenure in Boston will always be of the 2011 Stanley Cup run.
“Just the way he played in that Stanley Cup playoff run,” Neely said of Thomas. “He was in a zone and he played extremely well. There’s no question. You can’t deny the way he played for us during that Cup run. He was a major part of helping us win a championship. I know it’s a team sport, but he made some big saves at timely times.
Cam also discussed what he is seeing out of Tyler Seguin and what the Bruins can do to improve their power play.[cbs-audio url=”http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/nyc.podcast.play.it/media/d0/d0/d1/d2/d6/d1/d4/12614_3.MP3″ size=”340px” download=”true” name=”Cam Neely Talks About The Bruins Hot Start and Trading Tim Thomas” artist=”Felger and Massarotti”]
