The offseason for the Boston Bruins — and first for new general Manager Don Sweeney — has been quite the rollercoaster thus far. No NHL team has been more active in wheeling-and-dealing this past week than the B’s, and in Day 1 of free-agency yesterday they showed no signs of slowing down.
Having traded one of their marquee players in Milan Lucic, and an up-and-coming defenseman Dougie Hamilton, the shake-up of the B’s as we once knew it is well underway. President Cam Neely and GM Sweeney made a splash and acquired top free agent of 2015 Matt Beleskey from the Anaheim Ducks. They also lured Massachusetts native Jimmy Hayes from the Florida Panthers in exchange for Reilly Smith and Marc Savard. And just a few days prior they landed agitator extraordinaire Zac Rinaldo from the Philadelphia Flyers for a third-round draft pick in 2017.
