Since their Stanley Cup Final loss, the Boston Bruins have parted with four right wingers, necessitating a major roster shake-up. Although some of the vacancies have been filled, an empty spot still remains on the third line, raising questions about who will occupy it.
With Nathan Horton and Jaromir Jagr testing free agency, the Bruins dealt Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley to Dallas, leaving Shawn Thornton as the only remaining right winger from the 2013 Eastern Conference champions.
Loui Eriksson came to Boston in the Seguin trade, and he should slot right into the top-six. A day after Eriksson was acquired, Jarome Iginla signed on to become the No. 2 man on the right side.
Now the Bruins are left to identify a third-line player capable of providing depth scoring and two-way play. Although a trade could still be in the works, here are the five players either on the free-agent market or already within the Bruins' organization most likely to be given the spot.
