The Boston Bruins are keeping it simple for their Tuesday meeting with John Tavares in Los Angeles.
Rather than bring the pillars of the organization — be it past players, current leaders, and/or other Boston athletes — the B’s are rolling into the CAA offices led by general manager Don Sweeney, team president Cam Neely, and coach Bruce Cassidy. First reported by the Boston Herald’s Steve Conroy and since confirmed to 98.5 The Sports Hub, the B’s decision to keep it small is a definite less-is-more approach that all teams have followed since these meetings began on Monday.
The Bruins will be the second and final meeting of the day for Tavares and agent Pat Brisson, as a meeting with San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson and head coach Pete DeBoer was Tavares’ first of the day.
Tavares’ busy week will continue with Wednesday meetings with the Stars and Lightning.
The Bruins have $11.9 million in available cap space to sign the 27-year-old Tavares.
The No. 1 overall pick in 2009, Tavares has recorded 272 goals and 621 points in 669 NHL games.
