|Andy Brickley on M&M: ‘I expect [Tyler Seguin] to take a little clearer look in the mirror’||02.13.13 at 2:00 pm ET|
Andy Brickley of NESN joined Mut & Merloni on Wednesday to talk about what the Bruins might do with the money they freed up by trading Tim Thomas, Tyler Seguin‘s lack of production, and his broadcasting partner Jack Edwards, whose reaction to the Bruins’ comeback Tuesday has by now been seen all over the hockey world.
“I just admire his passion for the game,” Brickley said of Edwards, who was on video jumping up and down after the Bruins rallied to tie Tuesday’s game. “That was such an unlikely scenario, and how much he cares about quality play and the entertainment value of the visual medium we’re involved in, I think is spectacular. It’s different from my style and therefore I think we’re a good balance, but I think the fact that he’s enjoying it, doing a good job, calling the game the way it should be called, I think he’s doing the fans a service.”
Brickley said that, in addition to solidifying their long-term situation in net, the Bruins could be looking to add a veteran forward before the trade deadline.
“You’ll rarely get another Mark Recchi-type player, but I think that’s where they’re targeting somebody that can play in the top nine as far as their forwards,” he said. “They have a real strong room, but without Recchi and his resume or his pedigree, I think they’re looking for that type of player.
“I know they signed Jay Pandolfo and he brings a couple of Cups, experience, a guy that’s been around a long time. I’m not sure if he’s the guy, but I think they’re looking for that type of player that’s another voice in the room that can help motivate or keep guys in line or further get them to do what they need to do to be accountable to the rest of the team.”
|Bruins give Jay Pandolfo one-year deal||02.12.13 at 2:02 pm ET|
The Bruins and veteran forward Jay Pandolfo have agreed to a one-year deal, according to a source. The agreement was first reported by TSN’s Bob McKenzie, with Pandolfo receiving a prorated $600,000 deal.
Pandolfo, who has been with the Bruins on a tryout since training camp, must clear waivers before he can play with the team. The B’s placed him on waivers on Tuesday and he is scheduled to clear waivers Wednesday at noon.
A native of Burlington, the 38-year-old Pandolfo has played 881 games in the NHL with 100 goals and 126 assists for 226 points.
