Bruins Future Brightened By Draft Lottery Results

The results of last nights NHL Draft Lottery certainly have brightened the outlook of a Bruins team which as of the end of the ’09-’10 regular season was a lack-luster 30th in goals scored in the league. With Boston having the 2nd overall pick in the 2010 rookie draft the air has filled with promise due to the well known strengths of the incoming rookie class.

The two clear front-runners out of the rookies are Taylor Hall and Tyler Seguin, either of which promises to add to what seems to be an offensive less Bruins team.

I have heard some people asking why the Bruins received such a high pick while maintaining a playoff run, well to those of you that have been living under a rock the Bruins traded Phil Kessel their top goal scorer from the ’08-’09 season to the Toronto Maple Leafs in return for their First round pick in 2010.

Well as luck would have it, the Maple Leafs went on to have a horrible season in ’09-’10 and therefore ensured Boston with a very valuable opportunity in the upcoming draft.

Hopefully this year the Bruins will finally find the much needed spark that was so evidently missing in previous drafts.
