Boston Bruins: Trade deadline approach leaves an underwhelmed feeling

On the other side of the deadline though, the only additions for the Boston Bruins are Ondrej Kase and Nick Ritchie, both from the Anaheim Ducks. With no discredit to them, they don’t scream excitement.

Maybe it’s a good thing and a sign that the Boston Bruins are confident the core group from last year can compete again this play-off season; maybe there’s no reason at all to be underwhelmed.

However, when you look around the league at some of the big movers, it’s hard to not feel a tinge of disappointment that Don Sweeney didn’t go bigger and bolder.
