    Bruins & ECHL Carolina Stingrays



    If people can stop talking about politics for another second.

    What's the deal with going with another ECHL team?

    Anybody know Why?

    I imagine the whole Reading team goes to Carolina, right?

    Or what is the deal?  Isn't pretty much everyone on the team under contract with the Bruins?

    Probably not BH. I believe each NHL team is allowed to have only 50 players under contract.

    Its also interesting that Peter Chiarelli owns a USHL team called Dubuque. It seems this guy watches a ton of hockey.

    So they fund a team just for the sake of about 10 guys?

    i could be completely wrong but i don't think the Bruins are necessarily affiliated with Reading in an official capacity. I read something a while ago about how not all NHL teams have ECHL teams, but they can "loan" players to those teams pretty easily.

    east coast teams are weird, i know that they can be affiliated with more than one team. I'm pretty sure reading had something with the  maple leafs while they had a lot of bruins palyers too

    No they wouldn't really "fund the team". Teams in the Coast would have their own ownership groups that are trying to make money through ticket sales, etc. Having an affiliation with the Bruins only means that the Bruins are helping them ice a team by essentially giving them some "free" players. The Bruins already have more guys under contract than they have room for in Boston and Prov. They need a place to put them so it's win-win for the Bruins and Stingrays.

    I think you nailed it, and also it is kind of close so they save money on trips for scouts who want to get a peak at who is doing what.
