    That’s a win for the Bruins that he didn’t go to Toronto as was rumored.

    2019 NHL Draft

    I want no part of a drafting a guy that was a “monster” skating against 16 year olds as a 20 year old in the WHL. He’s exactly the kind of overreacting that I don’t want this front office to have to the way the season ended. I want them to draft the most skilled guy available. If he happens to...

    2019-2020 Bruins

    I mentioned that they started practicing at the garden in the finals after game 1 because the ice was horrible and they wanted to get used to it. It’s my understanding that the biggest issue with the ice quality at the garden is the construction, which will be completed by next April. The ice...

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    I think he was referring to the reports that will inevitably come out today or tomorrow as to which players were playing through injuries that will require surgery in the offseason. Which is always a factor this late in the playoffs. And I hope everything works out well for you on your situation.

    2019-2020 Bruins

    There is no reason for anyone to want to move on from Rask or Krejci. They were both very good this year and there is no one on an ELC coming up that could match their production. If Keyser tears up the AHL next season, maybe he can replace Halak as the backup in 20-21, but he’s a long way from...

    2019-2020 Bruins

    Belichick doesn’t operate in a world of guaranteed contracts and no move clauses. It’s comparing apples to watermelons. -In his league he could just cut Backes. -Bergeron has a full no move clause, and can’t renegotiate his deal even if he wanted to leave. Whenever Belichick does of those...

    2019-2020 Bruins

    Where to begin. If all Krug can net you is 2 2nd round picks, you let him play his contract out and have him for next years playoffs. If I did trade him it would be for a winger that is a hell of a lot better than Josh Anderson. Next, Zboril was drafted in the first round and is not even 22...

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    This is insulting and completely inaccurate. The Bruins “showed up” last night. They carried play in the first and couldn’t finish due to blocked shots, good goaltending and pure shit luck. They made two mistakes and they ended up in the net. That allowed an already great defensive team to put...

    Adding future bad contracts isn’t going to help the situation.

    How is that rink? I got invited to play on a Sunday night team there. They said it wasn’t bad but these guys are used to Hockey Town. Is it actually not bad or just less of a shit hole than Hockey Town.

    He’s still relatively cheap and has upside. He’ll probably command $2.5 per year which is fine for a good 3rd line wing that could score 20 goals if things broke right for him, and is defensively responsible. Keep him while he’s in that dollar range, the. when he gets to UFA replace him with the...

    2019-2020 Bruins

    No actually 4. If Toronto finished with 3 less points (97), they still would have made the playoffs over the 9th place team (Montreal with 96). It doesn’t matter that Montreal is in the same division in this case.

    2019-2020 Bruins

    Actually four points. And just like how I expect the Bruins young players to get better, the Leafs young players will also get better. Barring season ending injuries to guys like Matthews, I would pencil them into the playoffs.

    2019-2020 Bruins

    The biggest issue with those odds are that the Bruins at #2 will probably have to beat #4 and #1 to just get back to the ECF.

    2019-2020 Bruins

    They just have too many NHL or NHL ready defensemen. I would love to see them be able to keep Krug, but to do so and pay McAvoy and Carlo, someone has to go. Miller is the obvious guy. Sure they missed him in a finals series against a heavy western conference team, but they still have to play...

    Is Kevan Miller movable at $2.5 million? Or is that just sunk cost with the injury at this point?

    2019-2020 Bruins

    Maybe I’m just overly bullish on their ability to draft and develop young defensemen under Sweeney. They need a couple of potential top 2 center prospects in the organization absolutely, but I like where they’re going at the other positions.

    2019-2020 Bruins

    Probably not. The road opened right up for them and their forward group that was great all season couldn’t close the deal. However management should have the same plan going into this offseason that they would’ve had had Pietrangelo and O’Reilly hit posts in the first and Marchand’s shot on the...

    No they will all be back, another piece of the roster will have to get moved. Heinen will be the most affordable of the 3.

    2019-2020 Bruins

    Keep in mind that the salary cap is about to hit those teams hard in the next year or two. For as big of an opportunity as the Bruins wasted last night, they’re still building towards their window. Tampa is about to see theirs shut. Especially with Yzerman gone now.
