Dougie Hamilton Expected to Crack Top Six Defensemen for Bruins Next Season

Dougie Hamilton Expected to Crack Top Six Defensemen for Bruins Next SeasonBruins' general manager Peter Chiarelli has had a busy offseason so far. And it's not about to stop anytime soon.

Chiarelli just re-signed centers Chris Kelly and Gregory Campbell this week, following the re-signing of forward Daniel Paille. With Tim Thomas still committed to sitting out the season, the Bruins must now look to re-sign goalie Tuukka Rask as the primary netminder. The Bruins still have room for several more roster changes down the road, as Chiarelli also expressed the desire to add a top-nine forward, and many anticipate Dougie Hamilton to have an impact on the defense in the 2012-13 season.

Bruins fans didn't have to wait until all these off seasons moves were completed. Fortunately, NESN.com Bruins writer Douglas Flynn held a Twitter chat on Wednesday to answer all of your Bruins and NHL questions.

Fans joined the chat with the hashtag #NESNLive. Check out the conversation below.
