Kalman: Bruins Will Need Goals From Lucic, But Winger's Goal Right Now Is Health

Any longtime teammates of Bruins forward Milan Lucic that want to take some liberties with him, the opportunity to get him when he's not 100 percent healthy should come in the week ahead when training camp begins. Lucic admitted Monday that he's still rehabilitating his surgically repaired left wrist, which was injured in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference second round against the Montreal Canadiens.

Will the NHL publicize divers?

Interesting tidbit here from the New York Daily News , pertaining to last week's news that the NHL is cracking down on embellishment: [Bill] Daly, the NHL's deputy commissioner, told the Daily News via email on Friday that the NHL's new fines for players and coaches for excessive diving will be determined after each game by video review, regardless of the call on the ice. In other words, just because a player isn't called for embellishment in a game doesn't mean the league can't charge him for it later.
