I wouldn't add anything to the Bruins yet. Let the kids develop and go from there.

Yeah, but placing rookies in depth roles aren't great unless they project to be a checking forward. For whatever reason, Boston roster always feels incomplete no matter how good it is.

To be fair, guys like Donato, JFK, etc would start off as a 3rd scoring line. It would be players like Kuraly on the 4th.
