Dreger: Bruins "still looking for a top-9 forward"

Darren Dreger was on NHL Network’s NHL Tonight on Thursday evening.

On what he expects from the Boston Bruins:

“In Boston, the talk remains the same. They haven’t plugged the hole that was created by Nathan Horton or Jarome Iginla jumping ship to go to the Colorado Avalanche. So they’re still looking for a top-9 forward, preferably a winger.”
