    Old guys playing in different eras

    Bill Russell would be a beast today - but heck, he was a beast in his own day, as well. And comparing Jordan to DeMarr freaking DeRozan should be grounds for - well, I'm not sure exactly, but something. Jordan would dominate DeRozan (and likely Harden, for that matter) in literally any type of...

    2019-2020 Bruins

    I'm surprised that no one has been talking up Wayne Simmonds. The Bs just got pushed around in the SCF. Shouldn't "find someone who can skate a top 6/top 9 shift who also creates space for himself and his linemates" be high on the priority list?

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    Yeahbut - you don't count on your goalie to stop only the ones that hit him, he needs to stop some that have a high degree of difficulty. To be fair to Rask, there is no game 7 if he doesn't do that throughout the playoffs. To be fair to everyone, Binnington did and Tukka didn't tonight.

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    Defensive? They carried possession but couldn't score. And when the puck went the other way it ended up in the twine. Scorers gotta score, goalies gotta stop. Their'n did, our'n didn't.

    2011 through the looking glass. Sucks to be on this side of it Edit what kenney said

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    Truthfully, if you go into the other team's barn and win 3, you deserve it. That's what I told the Toronto folks before game 7 of that series, and its's true here, too. .250 at home doesn't cut it in any sport, at any time of year

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    Sort of the anti-2011 And as people often say, you are what the numbers say you are, and right now, one guy's numbers say 1.000, the others say .750. Tuuk had no chance on the last one, but the others...

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    You kinda can - cashing opportunities is definitely part of playing well (as is the odd steal by the G of an opportunity that should be cashed). Whoever said that the Bs might be Dryden'd tonight should be banned forever.

    3 on 16, 0 on 29. Not deserved overall, but deserved tonight

    Just catching up via replay - looks like both goals were stoppable. C'mon, Tuuk!

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    I think y'all should cut Haunted a bit of slack on the shit thing. Just saying. And while I'm just saying...these Bs aren't the 2011 Bs, but they need to take a page from that book and make some of their own luck here

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    For some reason, the young woman in the Beer Store just objected when I referred to this evening as "Bruins Victory Night." "Not a fan," she said. Torontonians are weird. Wouldn't it be worse to see a team that entered the league after your last Cup win it? I know I felt that way about the 1992...

    2019 Stanley Cup Final - No Singing the Blues - Boston is Going Back to Backes

    Even better if it was via a first period assist

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    Yeah, the Finals were Cheevers time - and while Eddie Shore was an easy pick when two more wins were needed, 1 is a tougher number - until you combine it with 4, which is the right total (plus reflecting all-round legendary status)
