David Krejci‘s on ice presence is going to dictate how well this team does in 2015-2016. He is that important to this team and at 29-years-old, he is in his prime hockey years. Krejci is an extremely important player for the Bruins, and if he can stay healthy throughout the season, it’s probable to believe they will make the playoffs.

However, remaining healthy has been troublesome for Krejci, as last year he had two stints on the injury list missing about 7 weeks total. If the Center can stay healthy throughout the season look for a deep run by this Bruins team. If his injury struggles continue, there could be some issues.
