BRUINS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Loui Eriksson A Great Fit For Bruins’ Top Line Alongside David Krejci, Milan Lucic

The Boston Bruins need a first-line right winger after the free-agent departure of Jarome Iginla, and the search for his replacement should not extend beyond the team’s NHL roster. Veteran winger Loui Eriksson — the best player Boston acquired in last year’s Tyler Seguin trade — would be a tremendous fit on the Bruins’ top line alongside center David Krejci and left winger...

Lucic regrets handshake-line actions, but isn’t apologizing

The wrist injury Milan Lucic suffered in Game 7 of the Boston Bruins second-round playoff series against the Montreal Canadiens is healing quite nicely, thank you very much. But the ignominy he and the Bruins suffered in that same game, well, that’s taking a little longer to wear off.

The Bruins May Have Too Many Defensemen

from Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe, ... Still, nine is too many. Seidenberg is healthy, and so is the injury-prone McQuaid. Miller will be fighting to retain his spot, as will Bartkowski and McQuaid.
