He appears to have carried that fire over to his coaching career, which began Wednesday with a 6-1 rout of the Ducks and a confrontation with Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau at the glass that separated their benches at the Pepsi Center following the seasonopening game for both teams. Roy claimed he was angry over a hit Ducks defenseman Ben Lovejoy had leveled against Nathan MacKinnon, the skillful forward the Avalanche chose first overall in June's entry draft. MacKinnon, 18, had two clever assists on Jamie McGinn goals in his NHL debut. "I don't think this league needs that type of cheap shot," Roy said. Boudreau contended that Lovejoy had merely tripped MacKinnon and the real problem was that Roy had yelled at Ducks players throughout the game. "Bush league," Boudreau said. Boudreau and his players also were incensed that Roy put out heavyweights Cody McLeod and Patrick Bordeleau for the final seconds. "He put their big guys at the end. Probably to make a big show out of it. But not surprised," Ducks defenseman Francois Beauchemin said. It bubbled over in a shouting match at the end, in which Roy pushed at and nearly knocked over the partition between the benches before relative sanity was restored. Roy received a game misconduct penalty. "There was no need for it. They got the game won. Just pull your players off and show a little class," Boudreau said. "He's going to be in for a long year if he's going to yell at every player and yell at the refs every stoppage in play. It's just not the way the game is played." Then again, the way the Ducks' defense performed Wednesday isn't the way the game should be played, either. Beauchemin's intercepted pass led to a successful breakaway by Ryan O'Reilly at 15:39 of the first period, but the Ducks weren't out of it until Colorado scored three in the middle period against a near-helpless Viktor Fasth. The Ducks took 36 shots at Semyon Varlamov but were frustrated until Jakob Silfverberg got one past Varlamov at 19:53 of the third period. Corey Perry had one shot on goal; the same was true for Ryan Getzlaf, who was dismissed with a five-minute fighting penalty after a scrap with Steve Downie that Getzlaf said was in defense of a roughed-up Lovejoy. "We didn't compete the way we wanted to. We stopped moving our feet a little bit," Getzlaf said. "When you've got a skating team like that and kind of stand still a little bit they catch you flat-footed. That's something that we're going to have to look at, and look at moving the puck a little bit quicker out of our zone and getting going." The Ducks' defense figured to be thin early in the season while Sheldon Souray recovers from wrist surgery and Luca Sbisa recovers from an ankle injury, but this was close to utter disarray. "A lot of breakdowns in the D zone," Beauchemin said. "A lot of odd-man rushes that shouldn't happen and second chances, rebounds and stuff. Those pucks, we've got to get." The Avalanche converted two of five power plays, while the Ducks were 0 for 2. Boudreau made a healthy scratch of left wing Dustin Penner, whom the Ducks had signed in hopes he'd rediscover his scoring touch alongside Getzlaf and Perry, his linemates on the Ducks' 2007 Stanley Cup championship team. Boudreau said the Ducks are "counting on Dustin to be a big part of this club" but felt they had to reward players like Patrick Maroon for having a better training camp. In the end, it didn't matter that Penner didn't play. The problem was that the players they did have in the lineup didn't come to play. "We didn't have the pushback that you'd like to have," Boudreau said. "You want them to score a goal and you to be so mad and you go in there and dominate the next five minutes, and we were in a 'Woe is me' type thing. Those are things that you can't do." LA Times: LOADED: Anaheim Ducks Season opener is a non-starter for Ducks By ERIC STEPHENS / ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER DENVER In order to flip the switch, you must be able to find it first. The Ducks will need another game to look for it because they were in the dark for their season opener Wednesday night against Colorado. Semyon Varlamov and the Avalanche never let them into the light. Varlamov made 35 saves, and the Avalanche ushered in the Patrick Roy era as coach by obliterating the Ducks, 6-1, in front of a spirited, hopeful crowd at Pepsi Center. And the 18,007 in attendance got to see the same fire Roy showed as a star goalie with the franchise as he knocked over the center-glass partition between the benches while trading harsh words with Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau at high volume. Roy complained afterward about Ducks defenseman Ben Lovejoy sticking his leg out at his rookie No. 1 overall draft pick Nathan MacKinnon, calling Lovejoy's play a cheap shot. Boudreau was furious at Roy yelling at his players, some of whom had gotten into a scrum with Avalanche enforcers Cody McLeod and Patrick Bordeleau in front of the Colorado bench right as the game ended. It's not our job to be going back and forth with their players, Boudreau said. And then all of a sudden I told him, that's bull it's bush league.

5 The problem for the Ducks was that moment was the most fire they showed all night. Defensive breakdowns were the order of the night, with Ryan O'Reilly starting them off by picking off Francois Beauchemin's pass and beating goalie Viktor Fasth. Colorado blew it open in the second with three goals. Steve Downie scored on a third rebound after Fasth stopped O'Reilly twice down low. John Mitchell made it 3-0 and then Jamie McGinn got the first of his two goals. Beauchemin and Cam Fowler were on the ice for four of the six goals against. Fasth made 23 saves but was under siege. A lot breakdowns in the (defensive) zone, Beauchemin said. A lot of oddman rushes that shouldn't happen. Orange County Register: LOADED: Anaheim Ducks Penner takes a seat for Ducks' opener By ERIC STEPHENS DENVER Dustin Penner was dropped from the top line to the fourth in recent practices and found himself dropped out of the Ducks' lineup altogether Wednesday night. Penner was a healthy scratch for the Ducks' season opener against the Colorado Avalanche. A poor training camp is at the root of his early demotion after signing a one-year, $2 million deal to great fanfare this summer. Instead of reuniting with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry after having success with the two when they came up together in 2005, Penner is watching Patrick Maroon skate in that prime top-line spot. Following the team's morning skate at Pepsi Center, Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau was pushing the notion that the team isn't already giving up on Penner before the season begins. The feeling is the big winger still needs to work his way into peak condition. We really are counting on Dustin to be a big part of this club, Boudreau said. I just think you have to reward certain people for having good training camps. And you have to make a point of if you don t have a great training camp, that this isn t just given to you (or) everything's given to you. So that s was the case. And in Dustin s defense, the last 10 days he s worked extremely hard. He s not quite where he wants to be. But he s getting closer, a lot closer than when he first came into camp. Boudreau said Maroon's performance in camp earned the first game at this stage. Maroon was thrilled at getting the nod. Obviously I'm very excited to be on the opening night roster, Maroon said. That doesn't mean anything though. I still got to continue to play well, continue my success of just competing hard and doing the best I can every game, show them I want to be here. Maroon, 25, has averaged 23 goals over his five American Hockey League seasons and led Norfolk with 26 goals and 50 points in Skating issues have been what has kept the burly power forward from making an impact at the NHL level. But the St. Louis native has worked on his fitness since coming to the Ducks' organization and improved his skating to where it earned him 13 games with the parent club last season. Maroon also scored his first two NHL goals. The credit for his improved fitness, Maroon said, goes to working with former NHL defenseman Rik Wilson, a Long Beach native who owns a training facility in St. Louis. We had a really good summer this year, Maroon said. I can t thank him enough. Obviously I've got to continue what I did in the summer and continue this in the season. Hopefully be a player every game and in the lineup every night. SILFVERBERG READY Left wing Jakob Silfverberg was activated from injured reserve and made his Ducks debut. Silfverberg was dealing with a lower-body injury suffered during the third period of the Ducks' Sept. 22 exhibition game against the Avalanche. He did not play in the final two exhibition games but returned to practice Monday and has been skating the last few days. He's good to go, Boudreau said. Silfverberg, 22, was acquired from Ottawa at the NHL draft in the Bobby Ryan trade. To make room for the winger, Devante Smith-Pelly was sent down to Norfolk. Hampus Lindholm will have to wait before he makes his NHL debut as Boudreau went with the veteran Mark Fistric, who also played in his first game as a Duck. Lindholm had an impressive training camp as he led the Ducks with three goals. Boudreau said Lindholm, 19, the club's 2012 first-round pick, was under consideration. It was a thought, the coach said. But at this stage, we want him to watch a game. At least to see how the intensity and the speed is ramped up an awful lot more than what he was doing last week. Not him individually but the game. FASTH IN GOAL Boudreau said there isn't a scripted plan in place with regard to how he'll use goalies Jonas Hiller and Viktor Fasth. Fasth got the first start against the Avalanche but it figures that Hiller will play on the opening trip, perhaps Saturday in Minnesota. We've talked as a group, the goaltenders, (goalie coach) Dwayne Roloson and myself of what the long-term plans are but they're all subject to change obviously, the coach said. Orange County Register: LOADED: Anaheim Ducks Final: Avalanche 6, Ducks 1 October 2nd, 2013, 9:22 pm posted by ERIC STEPHENS DENVER - Semyon Varlamov stopped 35 shots in a razor-sharp performance and the Colorado Avalanche routed the Ducks, 6-1, on Wednesday night in the season opener for both teams at Pepsi Center. Ryan O'Reilly scored in the first period and the Avalanche blew the game open in the second, getting goals from Steve Downie, John Mitchell and Jamie McGinn to make Hall of Fame goalie Patrick Roy a winner in his first game at Colorado's new coach. McGinn later added another score as Nathan MacKinnon set him both times in a sparkling NHL debut after being selected first overall in the entry draft back in June. The Ducks, who were missing the injured Luca Sbisa and Emerson Etem, were no match in this one. Varlamov was stellar from the game's first few moments as he stopped a scoring chance by the Ducks' Saku Koivu. Matt Beleskey was turned aside later in the first and Jakob Silfverberg was robbed in the second when the Avs goalie got a glove on his open chance at the last second. Silfverberg did spoil the shutout for Varlamov and Roy by scoring with ninetenths of a second left, his first with the Ducks. Viktor Fasth got the surprise start in goal for the Ducks but didn't get a whole lot of help from his teammates. Downie was able to convert a powerplay goal on another rebound that wasn't cleared out after O'Reilly had been stopped twice by Fasth. Silfverberg was making his Ducks debut along with defenseman Mark Fistric and newly acquired center Mathieu Perreault, who skated on the second line with Silfverberg and Teemu Selanne, who began his 21st and final NHL season.

6 Anaheim Ducks Ducks scratch Penner for Wednesday's season opener October 2nd, 2013, 3:27 pm posted by ERIC STEPHENS DENVER -- Dustin Penner was dropped from the top line to the fourth in recent practices and has now found himself dropped out of the Ducks' lineup altogether.

Orange County Register: LOADED: Anaheim Ducks Ducks are grounded in season opener By Pat Graham, The Associated Press Posted: 10/02/13, 11:23 PM PDT DENVER >> Semyon Varlamov was sharp in making 35 saves, and Jamie McGinn scored two goals, leading Colorado to a 6-1 win over the Ducks on Wednesday night in Patrick Roy s coaching debut with the Avalanche. Ryan O Reilly, John Mitchell, Matt Duchene and Steve Downie added goals for the Avalanche, who improved to on opening night. Top pick Nathan MacKinnon set up both of McGinn s goals with no-look passes. Alex Tanguay, back with Colorado for the first time since the season, had three assists. Varlamov stuffed the Ducks all evening but lost his bid for a shutout with seven seconds remaining when Jakob Silfverberg slipped a shot by him. Silfverberg (lower body injury) was activated before the game. Viktor Fasth struggled for the Ducks, allowing three goals in the second period. Things got heated after the final horn, with some players getting into a skirmish near the benches. Even Roy got into the act as he jawed from behind the glass. The Ducks Dustin Penner was scratched from the season-opening lineup because of a lackluster training camp. The right wing signed a one-year deal worth $2 million to return to Anaheim after winning a Stanley Cup in 2012 with the rival Kings. Starting in his place was Patrick Maroon, who got into a fight with Cody McLeod. You have to make the point of if you don t have a great training camp, this isn t given to you, Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. LA Daily News: LOADED: Boston Bruins Bruins even stronger despite offseason movement By Fluto Shinzawa October 03, 2013 Despite a few additions and some key subtractions, Claude Julien s Bruins look to be just as strong as last season heading into Thursday night s opener. Five core players from last year s Bruins are not with the version that will start off the season against Tampa Bay on Thursday night. Of the five, the ex-bruin whose departure created the most significant vacancy is a skilled, Formula 1-fast right wing who can also play center. Rich Peverley will be missed more than Tyler Seguin, Nathan Horton, Andrew Ference, and Anton Khudobin. Peverley was the No. 3 right wing before the Bruins traded him to Dallas. Before they slumped last year, Peverley and Chris Kelly teamed as one of the game s best third-line duos. They were penalty-killing partners. The leftshot Kelly and the righthanded Peverley, who won more draws than they lost, gave coach Claude Julien options on important defensive faceoffs. Peverley was one of the team s fastest skaters. He played on every line, both center and wing. Peverley was a point man and a down-low guy on the power play. Reilly Smith, Kelly s new right-hand man, does not possess Peverley s versatility. Otherwise, the Bruins head into the season opener as though it s business as usual. A team that replaced three of its four right wings will hum along as if no roster churn happened. We re trying to build a winner, said general manager Peter Chiarelli. That s where our expectations are. The team is not one assembled via happenstance. This template, formulated by Chiarelli, president Cam Neely, and assistant GMs Jim Benning and Don Sweeney, is one that worked in Two more wins last year would have been further confirmation of the blueprint s staying power. The Bruins had no intention of changing their formula, even amid the offseason turnover. Horton wanted out. The Bruins itched to trade Seguin and his six-year, $34.5 million contract. The Bruins couldn t afford Peverley s $3.25 million average annual value. Cap-wise, they couldn t write the check for Ference

7 that he deserved on the market (four years, $13 million from Edmonton). The Bruins believed they could land a cheaper backup goalie than Khudobin. Hockey operations identified and targeted the best replacements. Chiarelli pulled the trigger on the transactions: trading Seguin and Peverley for Smith and Loui Eriksson, signing Jarome Iginla and Chad Johnson. Free agent signee Torey Krug, Ference s fill-in, developed in Providence last year under the watch of Bruce Cassidy and Kevin Dean. The result is a lineup that has undergone surgery. Seventy-five percent turnover on the right wing voters might demand a similar percentage in Washington in the next election cycle is not insignificant. The stitches, however, are invisible. Iginla shares Horton s assets: bite, north-south speed, joy in shooting the puck. Iginla and Milan Lucic will be flanking strongmen for David Krejci, who plays bigger every time his linemates flex their muscles. Iginla is a natural leader, one the Bruins considered naming their alternate captain before pasting the A on Krejci s sweater. While Boston could be his final NHL team, Iginla s final landing spot will be in Toronto at the Hockey Hall of Fame. The tool that could make Iginla even more dangerous than Horton is his one-timer. Horton s go-to piece was his wrist shot a heavy, accurate snapper. Iginla can snap the puck off the rush, but his trademark is his onetimer, usually from the left circle. Iginla unloads it often and with pleasure. On the power play, the Bruins haven t had a similar right-shot one-time presence during Chiarelli s time. When Iginla winds up, either at the left dot or in the high slot, he will spread out the offensive formation. Teams will have to respect Iginla s shot. If they cheat his way, shooting lanes will open for Krejci, Lucic, and Krug. The uncertainty regarding Iginla is how he ll pace himself until the playoffs. Horton had a history of regular-season cruise jobs. But in the postseason, when healthy, Horton was one of the Bruins best. Iginla, primarily a left wing with Pittsburgh last season, submitted a playoff line against the Bruins in the Eastern Conference finals. The three previous years, Iginla s Flames didn t qualify for the playoffs. The Bruins acknowledge that Seguin, formerly their No. 2 right wing, could tear apart the ice in Dallas. It s possible, perhaps even likely, that Seguin will outscore Eriksson. But Eriksson s superior hockey sense and skill set fast, strong on the puck, crafty in close quarters, dependable defensively will make the second line better. You ve got a smart player in Eriksson that understands the two-way game, Julien said. With Bergeron being such a good two-way player, he s certainly going to complement that. Let s not kid ourselves. He s a highly skilled player with real good vision and shoots the puck well. He finds holes. I think it s just a matter of time before you see those guys really be a force game in and game out. Krug does not have Ference s experience. Ference plays a more physical game. But Krug plays at a higher tempo. Krug is a natural power-play quarterback and will direct the attack from the point on the first unit. Johnson, who has backed up top-flight goalies Mike Smith and Henrik Lundqvist, will be in a similar position. Tuukka Rask will make 60-plus starts. The Bruins are asking Johnson to be dependable, if not spectacular, every fourth game or so. There are still questions for me that have to be answered, said Chiarelli. But I like what I ve seen so far. Whenever you can bring in new faces and young faces, it helps the outlook of the room and of the team. I feel it energizes them. I see that happening. Boston Globe LOADED: Boston Bruins Lightning October 03, 2013 Staff When, where: Thursday, 7 p.m., at TD Garden. TV, radio: NESN, WBZ-FM (98.5). Goals: Steven Stamkos 29, Martin St. Louis 17, Teddy Purcell 11. Assists: St. Louis 43, Stamkos 28, Purcell 25. Goaltending: Anders Lindback ( , 2.90 GAA), Ben Bishop (3-4-1, 2.99). Head to head: This is the first of four meetings. The Bruins won all three games last season. Miscellany: On Tuesday, St. Louis was named the ninth captain in franchise history... Former Providence College defenseman Matt Taormina is on injured reserve with an upper-body injury. Boston Globe LOADED: Boston Bruins David Krejci sets a good example for Bruins By Amalie Benjamin Globe Staff October 03, 2013 The accepted wisdom is that there is no switch to flip, no easy way for a player to automatically lift his game and his production when the postseason comes. Accepted wisdom? Meet David Krejci, and the Bruins top line. He is proof that you can, Milan Lucic said. I mean, us as a line, we re all proof that we can. It s not that Krejci (or the line) has been a disappointment in the regular season, though there were struggles at times last season. But the center has been that much better in the postseason, that much more productive, as he raises his game from very good center to the best in the NHL. In the two seasons the Bruins have gone to the Cup Final in the past three years, Krejci has increased his points per game from 0.83 to 0.92 in and from 0.70 to 1.18 in Lucic, too, rebounded from a subpar 0.59 points per game last season to record 0.86 in the playoffs. That s significant. It s a lot easier to get up for a playoff game than, let s say, Game 55 in January, Lucic said. But, you know what, 2 points is 2 points at the end of the day, so you want to do whatever you can to create that consistency in your game to bring that high level of play night in, night out. Talking amongst each other, that was our main focus heading into this year, was to try to implement that high level of play in an 82-game schedule. So how do they make that happen? Maybe the bounces aren t going to be there every game, but the one thing you can control is your effort, Lucic said. That s one thing that we re obviously going to have to put a lot of work into is our effort. If we take care of that, it always seems like everything else tends to take care of itself. Krejci did come up with a few other theories for the change in production: the familiarity of opponents, the scouting, the style of hockey. But, he acknowledged, It s a really tough question. It s a little different hockey, he said. You see the same team 4-7 times and I guess maybe when you make those little adjustments, maybe that helps our line and our team, as well. When you play in the regular season, you see one team one night, another [team]. It s a little different. And while some of the credit goes to the coaching staff and scouting staff for pointing out the adjustments that need to be made, it s on Krejci and his line to make those adjustments. Maybe that s what helps our line, Krejci said. Maybe that s why we are so good in the playoffs, because we re smart players and we can adjust

8 quickly. Maybe that s why we re successful. But it s a tough question. I don t have an answer for that. As the season starts, Krejci and Lucic are focused on things other than their playoff production. They have had to get used to a new linemate in Jarome Iginla albeit one who slots pretty cleanly into the spot left by Nathan Horton and Krejci is trying to bounce back from back spasms that he suffered last Friday in Saskatchewan. The center said he will be a game-time decision for Thursday s opener against the Lightning after the back spasms, which he hasn t dealt with in six or seven years, knocked him out of practice for most of the week. He did return to the ice Wednesday at TD Garden. He just seems to play big in big games, which is great to have on your team, Lucic said. I saw him also have a [73-point] season here one year, so you know he can do it in the regular season as well. It s not just him. I think it s [that] all of us have to find that consistency in our game. That s what the main goal is heading into this season. It was something that coach Claude Julien noted when announcing that Krejci had earned the alternate captain role vacated by Andrew Ference. As he said, In the playoffs, he comes up big. With that A on his sweater, Krejci will be responsible for even more leadership on the ice and in the dressing room. So, too, will Lucic, despite wearing no letter. And it certainly wouldn t hurt if the pair can transition seamlessly with Iginla, if they can get just a bit closer to the heights that they hit once the games matter the most. Hopefully we re going to be as consistent as we can this season, Krejci said. We know it isn t going to always be easy, but we have to count on each other. Sometimes a guy is going to have a tough time, but that s why he s got linemates, teammates to bring him back up. That s what we have to do. Said Julien, You have to play to your highest level, and that s the expectation of the 20 players in the dressing room. And not just in the postseason. That highest level needs to be there every day, Game 1 or Game 55 or the Stanley Cup Final. So that s the plan for the line the hope even if they re not entirely sure how to make that happen. I think it s more of a mental thing, an excitement thing, Lucic said. That s the million-dollar question. I wish I had all the answers. Boston Globe LOADED: Boston Bruins Bruins would like a practice facility close to home By Amalie Benjamin October 03, 2013 The Bruins have been readying themselves for the season, but behind the scenes, they have been working on finding new ice for just that purpose. The team continues to work toward finding a new practice facility to replace Wilmington s Ristuccia Arena. The hope at this point would be to incorporate a facility into the plans for the old Boston Garden space, adjacent to the current TD Garden. My hope would be that we would have a premier, world-class training facility, Bruins principal Charlie Jacobs said. Not to say that we don t have one at Ristuccia, but we think we can do better, a little bit of an upgrade. If it works out with our partners at Boston Properties and we re still penciling the numbers there is a good chance that we would have one right next door, in addition to obviously some retail, some mixed-use, some restaurants. If that doesn t happen, he said, the team will continue discussions with New Balance on a facility in Brighton, and with the Skating Club of Boston. There are a number of different opportunities out there for us, Jacobs said. This might be Option 1 in my book, at the moment. Things change, though. It s an evolving process. He said the team has looked at models across the NHL, but this would be the most optimal because it would complement some of the other aspects of the development on the old Garden site. There is no timeline, but the plans have been submitted to the Boston Redevelopment Authority. The expectation is they will be reviewed in November with a preliminary permit potentially forthcoming. I think it would benefit us greatly if we were to have our own practice facility right here, Jacobs said. Raising pain Jacobs said he watched the Blackhawks raise their championship banner Tuesday night before switching the channel to the Bruins own show, Behind the B. Really? said team president Cam Neely. I did not watch it. I would prefer to watch our own. You have a hard time watching someone else lift the Cup and raise a banner, so I didn t watch it. Hopefully we ll be watching one in the near future here. And that doesn t seem like such a far-fetched idea. The keynote is to say we re really not going to play for second place, owner Jeremy Jacobs said. We re here to win and I think that the organization is in a good place to do that. I think we ve got the right combination. Soderberg out Carl Soderberg was placed on injured reserve retroactive to Friday s game against the Jets in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, when he injured his left ankle. That means he will not be available for Thursday s opener against Tampa Bay, but could play Saturday if he has improved. He said he didn t remember how it happened, though coach Claude Julien had said Soderberg caught a rut on the ice. It felt really bad after the game, said Soderberg. It s felt much better every day. As for when he could return, I have no idea, he said. It feels much better, so we will see. We can take a couple of days, but we have no idea. Jordan Caron is expected to skate as the third-line left wing in his place, along with Chris Kelly and Reilly Smith. Let s make a deal It sounds as though the Bruins are working toward a deal with defenseman Dennis Seidenberg, one of the few key members of the team without a contact for next season. Seidenberg, who has said it s not easy to play in a contract season, was signed to a four-year deal after being traded with Matt Bartkowski from Florida. Asked how high a new contract was on the agenda, general manager Peter Chiarelli said, It s pretty high. We ve had discussions, and we ll figure something out there.... Chiarelli said the team could use its three young defensemen Torey Krug, Dougie Hamilton, and Bartkowski similar to a platoon in baseball, based on what s needed that particular night... The Bruins placed defenseman Kevan Miller on waivers Wednesday, with the purpose of assignment to Providence of the AHL. Miller had survived the last cuts of training camp, but was the eighth defenseman on a team that usually carries seven. Boston Globe LOADED: Boston Bruins Expectations remain championship or bust for Bruins By Jeff Pini / Boston.com Correspondent / October 2, 2013 The expectations are as high as ever as the Bruins drop the puck on the season Thursday night against Tampa Bay. The team s management transitioned the Bruins through some personnel changes while maintaining the goal of competing for a championship. We re trying to build a winner and those are where our expectations are, said general manager Peter Chiarelli. We ve added some new bodies,
