Is it October Yet? Bruins 2015-2016 Team Update

BostonBearAs you Bruins fans already know, many changes have been made to the Bears’ roster and game plan. They have been nonstop training this summer to improve their play and train their new players. While it has been sad to see some of our favorites pack up and move on, it has been pretty cool to watch our fair amount of new guys work for their spot on this team. There are high hopes for this season.

All of our favorite players have been hard at work training for this upcoming season, in hopes of another banner. The Bruins began their training camp just this past Thursday, September 17th. Thursday’s practice began with off-ice fitness testing which was their only practice that was closed to the public. Since Friday there have been on-ice practices, that are entirely open to the public. Most of these practices are held at Ristuccia Arena, and will continue until September 2nd. There are a total of 60 players on the roster for training camp, only 20 of which played in an NHL Bruins game last season. The first official preseason game was on Sunday, September 20. The Bruins won with a score of 2-0.

Newly acquired Bruin, Colin Miller.

The B’s acquired new players that will each provide nice aspects to the 2015-2016 team. The free agent taken up by the Boys, Matt Beleskey shows the tough style that the Boston fans like. The right wing is expected to fight for pucks around the crease while also scoring around 20 goals this season. Another one to watch is Colin Miller who was the only player acquired in the Milan Lucic trade and is expected to replace the lost scoring production with the trade of Hamilton. He ranked second among all NHL D-men in scoring last season and should compete for a third-pairing NHL spot. It looks as though smart trades were made for the team and hopefully it’ll show in their first game this season against the New Jersey Blue Devils.

This season should be an interesting one as always, the B’s are going to have to work hard with their rookies as they are a fairly young team this year after losing a good amount of experienced players. As fans we’d like to believe this is the big year even if we are rooting for underdogs. No matter what I will never underestimate Boston, and I don’t think even a Canadiens fan would be so dumb to do so.
