Brad Marchand and the Boston Bruins are gearing up for a challenging season following their record-breaking regular campaign and a disappointing playoff exit, especially with the absence of Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci.

At the Bruins' first captains' practice, Marchand acknowledged the uphill battle, stating,

"Losing both of them in the same year is a significant blow to our group. But it offers other players the chance to step up, assume more leadership, and shoulder a heavier load..."

Marchand, a likely candidate for the captaincy at 35, stressed the importance of leadership beyond the title, a characteristic he possesses, according to Charlie Coyle.


While leadership is vital, the Bruins must also address the challenge of replacing Bergeron and Krejci's production and leadership collectively. The departures of key players like Tyler Bertuzzi and Taylor Hall could have ripple effects on the team's dynamics.

Despite these challenges, the Bruins are determined to forge ahead into the upcoming season.
