Team(s) Interested: Boston Bruins- The Boston Globe‘s Kevin Paul Dupont tweeted last week he’d heard “lingering chatter that Ray Whitney could be a Bruin.” With the retirement of Mark Recchi after winning the Stanley Cup last year, they lost some veteran presence in the change room. Whitney had 57 points last year as a 39 year old, so he clearly still has the ability to put pucks in the net. Whitney does have a No Movement Clause, so he would have to approve where he goes. As favorites to be repeat winners this year, I’m not sure why he wouldn’t want to play for the Bruins. As Lyle Richardson points out at The Hockey News, “Whitney is in the final season of his current contract and will earn $3 million against the cap…..the Bruins can afford after center Marc Savard’s $4 million salary comes off the books when he’s placed on long-term injury reserve.”  It may be too early to make a trade now, but it would also be too late to wait until the trade deadline.

 

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page: http://www.thehockeyhouse.net
