The latest information to hit my desk!

It has taken me hours to finally get a confirmation from one of our sources within the Bruins organization but it appears we have something useful to report.

Derek Morris is close to inking a three year deal with the Boston Bruins, as our source has dictated. This move is to fill the gap left on the Boston defense after today's trade of Aaron Ward to Carolina.

Turns out the only reason this signing did not happen earlier was because of Morris' concern over years, and not dollars. It is definite he will sign for approximately $3 million, but we are very confident it is for three years as stated above.

This move is all but done so if you are a Bruins fan, start ordering those Morris jerseys! I will bet my house on that!
