With all the great elements to compete, the Boston Bruins are looking to become real contenders in the upcoming 2013-2014 NHL season. Beginning in October, Bruins fans will get to see how the nerve racking changes General Manager, Peter Chiarelli, pay off. During the offseason, there were many shocking trades, signings, and revamps to give this team what it needs to challenge anyone.
There were many changes to the team during the offseason, but none more than in the offensive lineup, specifically the right side. Both Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverly left to join Dallas as Jaromir Jagr signed with New Jersey. Nathan Horton left to Columbus, only to be replaced by veteran hockey player Jarom Iginla. Iginla looked lackluster on his team in Calgary, where many doubted he would every be a super star again, however, his brief time in Pittsburg raised questions as to whether it was Iginla's ability or that of his former teammates that made him look to perform poorly. The Bruins expect Krejci and Iginla to really bring the heat to teams in the upcoming season, becoming an unstoppable pair. The only return from the right wing is Shawn Thornton, and they aren't worried that he will catch the new guys up to speed. Another threat comes from the threesome of newcomer Loui Eriksson, center Bergeron, and Marchand, who are expected to dominate the offense.
Defense is looking great with veterans Zdeno Chara, Dennis Seidenburg, and Johnny Boychuck still heading. A defensive duo to watch is the pairing of Dougie Hamilton with Torey Krug, who are bound and determined to show what they've got. Finally, holding down the net will be Tuukka Rask, who was signed for an extended term.
The way that this season is looking, the Bruins are going to be great contenders. Though it may take awhile for players to get comfortable, there's no doubt this team will bring it to the ice come game time.
