'Tank' may not measure up to last year

Using the newly debuted projection system of Puck Prospectus, VUKOTA, Insider takes the temperature of players on every NHL team, checking in Thursday with the Bruins.

Summer Skate -- Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins were the beasts of the East with the best regular-season record in 2008-09. With nearly the same core group of players, with the possible exception of Phil Kessel, the Bruins will attempt to put their second-round blunder against the Carolina Hurricanes behind them and take a step toward hoisting the Stanley Cup next June. If projections hold, they'll have the benefit of increased production from an oft-injured veteran ... even if a team pillar shows a few cracks.

To see which player could soar, which could sink and which could be a potential impact prospect, you must be an ESPN Insider.
