Discussing the projected opening-night lineup never gets old. It’s also pretty exciting for Bruins fans that there’s this much competition in camp. In fact, it’s never been like this since I’ve covered the team.
General manager Don Sweeney was criticized when he first took over the job in 2015 and many questioned his draft selections. At this point, he deserves credit for building the depth in the organization.
Even though every coach wants consistency in lineup, it’s inevitable the roster will change throughout the season due to injuries and other circumstances. Now that the preseason is over, Sweeney & Co. still has some decisions to make.
While the top two lines, and the fourth line, appear to be set, the third unit remains in question.
