2010-11 Prediction 6th Eastern Conference
When you talk (or type) about the B's, defense and goaltending come to mind. Zdeno Chara monitors the blue line in front of G Tukka Rask, and can send the puck the other way at over 100 mph. Nathan Horton also will help the Bruins after being traded from Florida. Surprisingly, where the Bruins figure to have trouble is putting pucks in to the net. The problem isn't a lack of talent, but a startling inconsistency. Patrice Bergeron and Marc Savard are world class talents. Milan Lucic and Shawn Thornton add the grit. Tyler Seguin, the #2 overall pick, has generated quite a buzz and all signs point to him making the team and (from a Boston perspective) hopefully helping to relieve the pressure on the offense. Watch for Bruins to be featured during the NHL Premiere festivities in Prague, Czech Replic October 9th and 10th.
Player to Watch: G Tukka Rask
