The Boston Bruins offseason is underway and the franchise isn't ready to blow the whole thing up just yet.
Lots of question marks need to be answered regarding the current roster and also how they'll attack free agency.
According to president Cam Neely their top need is pretty clear.
Neely wants the team to land a defenseman who could pair with Charlie McAvoy and eat up minutes.
“The elusive left D we’ve been looking for that can chew up a lot of minutes,” said Neely, when asked what he would add to this current core Boston Bruins group in a perfect world. “Maybe play on the second pairing with Carlo. That’d be more of a shutdown or some puck movement [with] some offensive blue line acumen. As we saw, you can never have enough D and we never seem to have enough.
“For some reason or another, we get banged up. I think our D this year had maybe eight concussions, which is something I don’t know how to combat. But that position is something that we’ve been looking [at] for a while. Hopefully we can do something to grab someone that’s going to help maybe play 20 minutes a game for us.”
