Chiarelli And Nonis Talk Draft
Less than a week after their game-6 Stanley Cup Finals loss, the Boston Bruins drafted for their future with a Swedish feel to their draft picks. Three of the six picks are from Sweden.
The Bruins did not have a first round pick this year. That pick was part of the trade deadline deal to get Jaromir Jagr.
