Boston Bruins President Cam Neely joined Felger & Massarotti to recap last season’s championship run and preview tonight’s season opener.
How have the Bruins turned the page on last season? What is the status of Marc Savard?
Will the Bruins spend to the cap?
And with a full NHL season under his belt, what will see out of Tyler Seguin this year?
“I think he’s going to have a fantastic year,” Neely said of the second-year forward. “He’s had a really, really good training camp. He’s showing more confidence, skating extremely well. We all know his skill set. He has one year under his belt, he knows what to expect.”
“He himself I know has personal goals he wants to achieve, and I think we’ll see him have more opportunity to get on the Power Play and play a regular role,” Neely continued. “That’s going to be dictated upon how he does play, but based on the camp that he’s had he should have a solid year for us.”
How will the Bruins goaltenders split the time this year?
“We’re all expecting Tuukka (Rask) to play some more games for us, especially out of the gates here,” Cam said. “Tim had a phenomenal year for us, as well all know. (It was an) emotionally, mentally, physically draining playoff series; he played a lot of hockey and played some spectacular hockey. We would like to be able to play Tuukka some more, and I think Tuukka is up to the challenge.”
“As the season progresses, we’ll see how it flushes out between the two of them.”
What’s going to change in the Bruins power play?
With Brendan Shanahan in charge of discipline in the NHL now, what changes can we expect in the games?
