Bruins' Eriksson could fill Iginla's top-line role

Thursday, 07.24.2014 / 4:53 PM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Jarome Iginla's departure means there is an opportunity for Loui Eriksson to move into a more prominent role with the Boston Bruins. At least that's the way Bruins coach Claude Julien sees it now as he contemplates what his lineup could look like Oct. 8, when Boston opens the 2014-15 regular season against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Julien, who spoke on a conference call Thursday to announce the hiring of Joe Sacco as an assistant coach, said Eriksson will be given the opportunity to take Iginla's minutes and, ideally, account for the production Iginla gave Boston last season.

Iginla had 30 goals and 31 assists but signed a three-year, $16 million contract with the Colorado Avalanche on July 1. Eriksson had 10 goals and 27 assists in 61 games last season but was sidetracked by concussions.

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Salary-cap constraints have forced Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli to watch from the sidelines as the rest of the GMs in the Atlantic Division have made efforts to improve their rosters in an attempt to catch the Bruins.

Steve Yzerman (Tampa Bay Lightning), Dave Nonis (Toronto Maple Leafs), Dale Tallon (Florida Panthers) and Tim Murray (Buffalo Sabres) have been among the busiest managers in the League since the market opened at noon ET on July 1, combining to sign or acquire via trade 18 players.

Marc Bergevin (Montreal Canadiens) and Bryan Murray (Ottawa Senators) most notably have been involved in some significant trades involving veteran players. Meanwhile, Ken Holland has struggled to find players willing to take the Detroit Red Wings' money.

Babcock looks to learn more via advanced stats

Thursday, 07.24.2014 / 10:46 AM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock is of the belief that the more information he can gather the better he will be at evaluating and running his team. That's why Babcock is interested in the growing movement of advanced statistical analysis in the NHL.

"Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind," Babcock told NHL.com. "You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'"

Babcock said the Red Wings have not hired someone to serve as an analytics guru, but he said such a move is coming.
