The week that was: Bruins busy on free agent market

Bruins General Manager Mike O'Connell was a busy man during the first week of free agent activity. When unrestricted free agency opened on Monday, Aug. 1, O'Connell was quick to the pull trigger. There were no big signings on the first day, but he did make a move to acquire left wing Brad Isbister in a trade with Edmonton.

On Tuesday, O'Connell made his first big splashes in the free agent market. He resigned star right wing Glen Murray to a multi-year deal, and then he inked speedy veteran right wing Shawn McEachern. Later in the afternoon, O'Connell announced that he had also signed physical center Dave Scatchard. O'Connell and the Bruins were just getting started though.

Wednesday saw the addition of NHL All-Star defenseman Brian Leetch to the roster. Leetch, who grew up in Connecticut, starred at Boston College and then for the United States Olympic team, has won two Norris Trophies and a Stanley Cup. He was introduced at a press conference on Thursday at TD Banknorth Garden.

No sooner had the press conference ended, O'Connell announced another free agent signing, this time inking veteran center Alex Zhamnov to a three-year deal. Zhamnov has played 12 NHL seasons and has scored 20-or-more goals nine times in his career.

Despite making a lot of noise in the unrestricted free agent market, O'Connell has also been busy trying to lockup some of the Bruins restricted free agents to long-term deals.
