The Boston Bruins had their captain back at practice onTuesday morning.
Bruins president Cam Neely was a guest Thursday afternoon on Felger & Massarotti.
With David Krejci and Zdeno Chara sidelined with injury, the Bruins have done no more than tread water.
That they’re actually thriving and not diving without Chara should be a cause for celebration around the Bruins. Yet there seems to be little satisfaction with the higher-ups of the organization
Whether they’re trading a top-four defenseman on the eve of the regular season, sending a player deserving of a chance in the NHL back to the American League for more seasoning or doling out goaltending assignments, the Bruins are always looking at the big picture.
Just how bad is it for the Bruins? And, more importantly, is there anything the players, coaches and front office staff can do to turn things around quickly?

“Well, listen, we knew what we were drafting as far as skill level, and we knew what we were giving up as far as skill level,” Neely said.

Chara’s injury has given the Bruins a chance to evaluate what they have in Zach Trotman, David Warsofsky and Joe Morrow.
Zdeno Chara spoke with the media on Tuesday for the first time since being sidelined with a PCL tear 12 days ago, but still does not have a timeline for his return.
