The Boston Bruins encountered another off-season of roster turnover. But, even with David Krejci returning home to the Czech Republic and Tuukka Rask’s uncertain future following off-season hip surgery, the franchise still has lofty goals entering its 98th season.
“The expectations are certainly high here,” team President Cam Neely said, “and there’s certainly no reason to change that.”
The Bruins have a few significant questions ahead of them, including a long-term replacement to fill Krejci’s gaping second-line vacancy. Several pundits peg the B’s between second and fourth in the Atlantic Division. Very few, if any, have the team anywhere near the Stanley Cup Final.
