The Boston Bruins lost out on the NHL's biggest free agent prize, Sunday, when former New York Islander John Tavares announced that he was taking his talents to the Toronto Maple Leafs. 

Despite not getting their number one target on the opening day of the league's free agency period, the team did ink seven other players to deals.

The moves were headlined by the addition of defenseman John Moore, who the team signed to a five-year deal. Moore has scored 32 goals and tallied 99 total points over his eight year NHL career.

The B's also brought in goalie Jaroslav Halak and forwards Joakim Nordstrom and Chris Wagner on two-year deals each.

The team also inked two-way deals with Cody Goloubef and Mark McNeill, while signing top draft pick Axel Andersson to a three-year entry level deal.
