It's a busy time of the year for the Bruins front office, especially for team president Cam Neely.
The Hall of Famer has a lot on his plate right now with the trade deadline approaching as he, general manager Peter Chiarelli and the rest of the Boston front office look for ways to improve.
Neely sat down with Andy Brickley on The Big Bad Bruins Show this week and did acknowledge that the team is certainly looking to add to and upgrade the roster, but also stressed that they'd like to do so without giving up anything from their current roster.
Not surprisingly, when asked what the B's were looking for, Neely admitted that they would love some more depth down the middle at center as well as having interest in adding a defenseman to handle the puck.
Neely also spoke about the recent decision by the Bruins to make rookie forward Tyler Seguin a healthy scratch. It's a decision, Neely says, that is one that is based just as much on where the Bruins are in the standings as it is in Seguin's play.
"We're in a little different situation — and we've said it all along — other teams that usually pick second, they're a struggling hockey club and can live with more of the mistakes," Neely said. "We don't have the luxury of some growing pains that maybe some other teams see their young kids do."
