The answer to this question is no, Torey Krug will not be traded this season. Despite facing some defensive challenges, Krug puts up the most defensive points for the B’s. In 33 games this season, Krug has 6 goals and 16 assists for 22 points. Krug is tremendous on the power play and is a terrific puck moving defenseman. At 5’9 and 186 pounds, the undrafted defenseman has exceeded expectations from the day he entered the B’s lineup years ago. In his first full season back in 2013-14, Krug recorded 40 points in 79 games. During the 2016-17 season, Krug set a career high in points with 51 in 81 games played.
The Paul Pierce comparison is coherent and obvious, but there is another great, bordering on legendary, Celtics player whom Jayson Tatum could learn from. Appropriately enough, this guy was the ying to Pierce’s yang - the one to his two. He was a hard-nosed gamer and a Tom Heinsohn favorite, earning “Tommy Points” inestimable throughout the course of his lengthy NBA career.
The Patriots Rock'd and Roll'd over Bryce P-P-P-Petty and the Jets
The Boston Bruins defeated the Ottawa Senators Saturday night at Canadian Tire Center 5-0 to move to 21-10-6 on the season.

With everyone on this Bruins team playing so well, Bjork is the odd man out.
Boston's Ryan Spooner had a terrific game for the B's and Tuukka Rask earned his 40th shutout of his NHL career to propel the Bruins back into second place in the Atlantic Divison.
The final week of the regular season is upon us! With 4 AFC teams battling for 2 playoff sports and the Falcons and Seahawks going for the last spot in the NFC, and other teams playing for seeding and home field advantage, this week 17, a sometimes boring week of starters resting and pointless games, should be a fun one.
Last Week’s Record: 13-3
Season Record: 158-82
For the rest of this season, us Celtics fans will be monitoring the Lakers draft projection spot. As we know, if the pick falls in the 2-5 range, the Celtics will get the rights to that pick. Well, don't look now but the Lakers pick is projected to land in the 4 or 5 spot.
If that game did not fire you up, nothing will.
