    Krejci heading back to Czech Republic

    It was great watching Krejci for all these years. The next few years are going to be tough as Bruins fans with this generation declining and retirements. I guess Chara was a preview but for a few of us, Bergeron is going to be surreal. Krejci is similar and hope he has great times at home...

    Tuukka or not Tuukka. That is that question

    What are the chances these veteran journeymen goalies are any good? Rask’s injury is the perfect chance to get a look at both Vladar and Swayman to start the year. Then, if Vladar is great or both are great Swayman can go down to Providence. But if Swayman is great, you can waive or trade...

    Bruins Round 2 Thread- New York Islanders

    I think it was a hard decision for Cassidy but, ultimately, I’m with you. He made the wrong one. There were goals last night that a healthy Rask gets. They didn’t lose the series because of Rask. As discussed up thread, he was overall good. (The forwards made them lose) But they may have...

    Bruins Round 2 Thread- New York Islanders

    The 2015 draft is very bad. I’m not going to defend it. However, Zboril was not an overdraft. Debrusk and Senshyn were. https://www.nhl.com/news/nhl-central-scoutings-2015-final-rankings/c-761663 If you think Sweeney should be fired, sure, I can see it. I don’t, the team has been good and...

    Bruins Offseason Thread

    Carlo’s value is reduced in general now and most teams aren’t looking to take on D at this time. (as the expansion draft is meant to break them free for Seattle) I guess if you could find a team with a spot you could get a 3rd or 4th round pick, maybe? Edit: I’d target replacing with Larsson...

    Re-sign Hall and another 2nd line forward. I would not protect Carlo (based on injuries) and if chosen, would sign a second pair D to replace him. Insert Frederic into the bottom 6. Studnicka probably takes the 2C role.

    6/9–Bruins at Islanders Game 6–Not Done Yet

    It definitely did not work with Ritchie. They need to rework their role players though. Ritchie and Kuraly need to be re-evaluated and they need to assess where Wagner fits overall. Some general thoughts: I’d like to see Frederic in the bottom 6 regularly. Studnicka looks better at center...

    6/9–Bruins at Islanders Game 6–Not Done Yet

    If you keep hitting, they’ll stop calling them eventually. The Blues series showed that. The bottom 6 just provided absolutely nothing from skill to grit to even speed. The D is young and was hurt. 2015 draft is a disaster but not sure there are other big draft issues.

    Bruins Round 2 Thread- New York Islanders

    And the D were very injured. But the bottom 6 were awful. Beyond not producing, they were outskated, outhit and overall useless.

    6/3 - Y'Hall Ready for This?

    Terrible goal. Very soft. He’s been great, but that’s an awful goal

    Bruins Round 2 Thread- New York Islanders

    Awesome, have to imagine it will be nice for them to be able to hang out if they choose in 2 weeks. By my count, that would be round 3 if they make it.

    Bruins Round 2 Thread- New York Islanders

    I’m guessing, but here’s my interpretation: They have less than 85% with 1st shots or fully vaccinated. Therefore, “filling in” means that in addition to the group getting their second shots, they need 1 or 2 people that are unvaccinated to get a shot this week to get to the required 85%...

    5/15 - Hall Aboard the Playoff Train

    Ugh. Hall and Debrusk were the best forwards. McAvoy on D. Gryz also had moments

    5/15 - Hall Aboard the Playoff Train

    Wow. Playoff hockey. I pretty much missed the 19-20’ playoffs, but I am back big here.

    2021-22 Goalie

    Yeah, great info frisbiterian! So first the Bruins have to figure out what Rask is asking for on a contact; considering he won’t leave the area, they likely only need to go year to year on term. Then, if Rask wants a 1 year deal, it’s a matter of what can you get for Vladar versus keeping both...

    Packers: Rodgers’ Chances of Returning to GB in Jeopardy!

    Their 1st round pick from only a year ago is a sacrificial lamb? Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson, Mahomes all sat (part of) that first year and led their teams to the playoffs in year 2. Depending on return, it’s perhaps lateral this year with the cap hit but it moves them forward next season, if...

    2021-22 Goalie

    Very good point. I guess, between the playoffs and a couple games this year, he can get ugly at times. Edit: and I had to watch that awful Washington game! You’re right that we do need to watch the larger sample and if it stays good, as Providence and his early stint for the Bruins shows...

    2021-22 Goalie

    Halak and Rask contracts are both up after this season. Swayman has played well in 9 games this year. Vladar has been mediocre in 4 games. Booth is available for the expansion draft while Keyser looks ready for seasoning in the AHL. In a perfect world, the Bruins could sign Rask to a 1 year...
