Here is part 2 of our Bruins Season preview, looking at their projected lineup and salary cap situation:
EXTRA – Justin Florek
The Bruins, despite not replacing Jarome Iginla, still have an above-average top 6, with a good spread of talent in the center ice position. They will be looking for Sponer to make a big jump this year, to provide a cost-conscious element to a team that is in tough against the salary cap. The Bruins have about 34.6M committed (after taking Marc Savard‘s $4+M off) to just 12 forwards, before Smith re-signs.
