Let's face facts—the Boston Bruins are most likely not going to acquire Zach Parise.
This offseason is about locking up key pieces to the team. Rask is going to demand a hefty raise, and Seguin and Lucic will both need new deals next offseason. Bergeron is another guy who isn't far off from needing a new deal.
Don't let Parise get you down—the Bruins have a lot to look forward to next season. Dougie Hamilton should join the Bruins ranks next season, and he is an extremely talented defenseman. The Bruins also have a healthy Nathan Horton to look forward to, and most importantly, a better Tyler Seguin who now has the experience of a full NHL season.
This next season will be one to remember for sure. Here are six predictions about the upcoming Bruins season.
