The Boston Bruins have worked their way to where they are now in the NHL. They went to a retreat for team building in the Great Diamond Islands. The team participated in a number of activities such as kayaking, rope climbing, and building rafts. Shawn Thornton said “It is a big deal to get to hang out and really get to know each other with having any distractions around for our team. Also general manager Peter Chiarelli said he made a conscious decision not to disrupt the team’s chemistry. Chemistry and communication are two of the most major keys that help make up a good team.
