Fall of 1980 - Bruins consider move to Salem, NH

Came across many stories between November 1980 and January 1981 about the Boston Bruins' investigation into Salem, New Hampshire as a new home.

Here's a few articles:

Interesting to hear this. Can't see the Bruins being serious about ever leaving Boston but still interesting to read this.

Very interesting, although as what has already been said, I can't see the Bruins serious about moving from Downtown Boston to out of the state. I would assume they would keep the Boston name despite not even playing in the state since Salem is a part of the Boston Metro area. The New England name was available though after the Whalers were forced to switch to Hartford as part of the WHA-NHL merger agreement in 1979.
