Top Questions Facing the Bruins:
- How will the Top 6 look for the B’s?
One of the best lines in the NHL last season featured David Pastrnak with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand, but do you want to keep the majority of your scoring on the first line? One could say putting Pastrnak with David Krejci could bring better scoring balance to the second line, but then who would you put with Bergeron and Marchand as well as with Pastrnak and Krejci? Which leads to a few possibilities.
2. Which young kids will take it up a notch?
Forwards Jake DeBrusk and Danton Heinen had good success last season, and Ryan Donato and AndersBjork will get the opportunity to grow their games this season. All four of these young men have the potential of playing in the top 6, and to see them all battling for it will make for good competition to watch.
