Bruins even stronger despite offseason movement

Five core players from last year’s Bruins are not with the 2013-14 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.
