NHL Draft 2011: Boston Bruins' Status Unchanged On Eve Of Draft

With draft weekend upon us, it must be awfully quiet over on Causeway Street these days; the Celtics holding pat with their less-than-favorable draft picks, the Bruins lacking the urgent need for a player or role to be filled as they have in so many years past. 

The Bruins, whose draft loot from the past few years has included Patrice Bergeron (2003); Milan Lucic, Brad Marchand and Phil Kessel (not to mention Tuukka Rask for Andrew Raycroft, 2006); Joe Colborne, Max Sauve, Jamie Arniel and Michael Hutchinson (2008); Jordan Caron and Lane MacDermid (2009); and of course, Tyler Seguin, Ryan Spooner and Jared Knight in 2010, don't have an immediate need, but have the luxury of being able to draft based on what they anticipate needing in a couple of years, and will likely do just that. 

Ryan Murphy and Nate Beaulieu continue to be high on the list for Boston, with Sven Baertschi also being considered.
