Cam Neely, Bruins Preparing for Tough Cap-Related Decisions Upon Various Players Returning

Cam Neely, Bruins Preparing for Tough Cap-Related Decisions Upon Various Players Returning The Bruins have some tough decisions to make in the coming weeks. But as Bruins president Cam Neely sees it, that may be a good thing.

Neely sat down for the "Presidential Address" with Kathryn Tappen on The Big Bad Bruins Show and among the things they discussed was what kind of roster moves the Bruins may have to make in the coming weeks. With players like David Krejci, Marc Savard and Marco Sturm on the way back, the B's will have to make some decisions about their roster to stay under the salary cap.

For guys on the current roster, Neely says for them to be looking over their shoulders will only keep the current roster motivated. Even upon the returns, however, Neely said it will be a delicate balancing act, especially if the team is playing well.

"We feel we can compete for the Stanley Cup and we want to make sure we do what we have to do but not disrupt what we have as far as our team chemistry goes," Neely said. "We've got guys who know they have to compete for jobs. They're not comfortable. Once they do get comfortable, it will show in their play and things will happen that they probably won't like."

To hear more from Neely on this as well as his thoughts on Mark Recchi's leadership, the development of Tyler Seguin, the resurgence of Tim Thomas and the controversy surrounding Savard and NHL disciplinarian Colin Campbell, check out the video below.
