  • Last Year’s Finish: 1st
  • Key Additions: None
  • Key Losses: Chad Johnson, Shawn Thornton, Andrej Meszaros, Jarome Iginla

The Bruins, needless to say, really didn’t have to add much to their roster as they easily won the division and were the best team in the entire league. However, their lack of cap-space has hurt them this off-season as they were not able to re-sign Jarome Iginla and they still haven’t re-signed budding stars Torey Krug and Reilly Smith. The money situation could REALLY hurt them next year as star center David Krejci is set to become a free agent after the season. All of this has fueled talks that players like Brad Marchand and Johnny Boychuk could be traded to clear some money.

Aside from the cap problems you can pretty much lock the Bruins into a top 3 spot in the division as they have players like Tukka Rask, Zdeno Chara, and Patrice Bergeron leading the way. There is no reason to worry about the upcoming season over in Beantown.
