The Bruins have been wheeling and dealing, lately. Tonight is the 2010 NHL Draft out in Los Angeles, but the Bruins have been multi-tasking.
They have already made a few key moves to bolster the 2010-2011 roster. Earlier today, they signed the unrestricted free agent winger Mark Recchi to a 1-year deal, which comes a day after signing defenseman Johnny Boychuck to a 2-year contract extension. Another big move the B's completed was to send defenseman Dennis Wideman, their 15th round draft pick, and a third round pick in the 2011 Draft to the Florida Panthers for forwards Nathan Horton and Gregory Campbell. Both are veterans of about 400 games, and have put up decent numbers, especially considering they played for the Florida Panthers.
The draft begins tonight at 7pm EST, and Boston will look to make further key additions to get them over the Eastern Conference Finals hump in 2011.
