5 Biggest Personnel Changes For Boston Bruins

Michael Ivins - USA TODAY Sports

There have been a lot of personnel changes this week due to the start of free agency. The Boston Bruins, as with most teams, have been affected by this, seeing some stars leave while others are arriving. Whether expected or not, this frenzy activity is normal, and it appears nothing has been taken off the table.

The Bruins have had to address one area of concern that needs to be resolved. The addition of a solid right wing player is crucial moving forward. With some key players, including a top-six forward, there is a gap of leadership, experience and talent that will need to be filled. Some of the recent signings and trades have helped assure that this gets done although there is still work left to do.

We can expect there to be more player signings as the finishing touches will be put on the squad in the weeks to come. As teams rush to grab the best talent available on the market, we can expect things to slow down. For right now, lets digest the recent events of the past week, or rather day, and try to make sense of all the new faces and the familiar ones that have gone.

As the Bruins begin to build a team for the next season that can challenge for the Stanley Cup again, lets take a look at some of the biggest moments in free agency for the Bruins. Here are some of the new arrivals and departures that are notable for the team.
