Summer, for the Boston Bruins, is a time of many things: of relaxation (see also Tyler Seguin's Twitter feed, an offseason travelogue) but also of readying their bodies for next season. As a Bruins fan, I'm happy to know that because they're doing their due diligence but also because, in at least one case, they're motivated by the early playoff exit this year to do better next year.
Dennis Seidenberg is starting his summer training regimen, inspired in part by watching playoff games from his couch. He doesn't like watching games from that perspective, though. He would rather be in the thick of it, still playing games, still on the quest for the Stanley Cup. So, it's made him hungry to get even better and improve his game for next year. He has goals: to get better, faster, more stable and more explosive.
