    ECQF Game 3: 4/24/24 @ Tarranna

    Somehow Shattenkirk gets a jersey. Is Grzelcyk hurt?

    Bello to IL with lat tightness

    At what point do they question how many breaking balls these guys are throwing when all your starters are getting hurt?

    Round 1 Bruins-Leafs

    I wasn’t calling for his head. I was saying he should be questioned. But that’s probably my bias against coaches in hockey in general. I think 90% lose their usefulness after 3-4 years.

    Round 1 Bruins-Leafs

    He also had a no trade clause. I agree with you on Barzal. Guarantee he’d like to have that one back.

    Round 1 Bruins-Leafs

    I think a lot of the not retaliating for physical play is due to how they get officiated after the constant whining by Montreal, Tampa, Vancouver, etc after the cup year. They have to get over that, go back to being a physical team, and just kill the penalties if they get called. Problem is...

    Round 1 Bruins-Leafs

    They tried to build the team around skating ability and speed to make up for the lack of top end skill and they have probably the worst ice surface in the league so it doesn’t surprise me. Puck sticks and bounces everywhere on that surface. And they’re not skilled enough to overcome it. And...

    Round 1 Bruins-Leafs

    And that’s where I think some criticism can be made of the coach. Breaking the puck out has been a problem all year. Sweeney has made several roster moves trying to address it. He can’t come with anything scheme wise to help it? Maybe counter what the forecheck is trying to make them do?

    Round 1 Bruins-Leafs

    And he was a big part in losing that series.

    Round 1 Bruins-Leafs

    I think it’s definitely fair to talk about the coach if they lose this series. He’ll be going on year 3 of what is either a 3 or 4 year deal, so it’s extension evaluation time. I think he’s an ok coach, but if he can’t come up with some adjustments here in this series to slow down Matthews or...

    Round 1, Game 1 -- Toronto @ Boston

    They’re alternating. Ullmark gets game 2.

    If you were a ballplayer...

    I would have gotten cut from division 3 high school team. And they didn’t cut anyone.

    Round 1 Bruins-Leafs

    They’ll get the HNIC 8pm time slot. Guaranteed.

    Jack Edwards to retire

    Jack is a good dude. Ran into him about 2 hours after a game at one of the bars around the Garden. This was probably 2010 maybe? Anyway my buddy and I bought him a couple beers and he had some great stories. Best of luck in what’s hopefully a long and healthy retirement.

    4/16- Finale vs. Ottawa

    This game meant nothing. Going balls out to set a record last year did them no favors. Just go in healthy.
  16. Salem's Lot

    Choose the opponent?

    Absolutely. The problem is that Florida knows they’ll just run right over them, so I expect them to completely mail it in tonight, and we’ll get Tampa.
  17. Salem's Lot

    Choose the opponent?

    Toronto. Shorter flights and a less physical opponent. It’s not just about winning the first round, it’s about getting out reasonably healthy.

    4/15 -- Boston @ Washington

    Not a bad idea

    4/15 -- Boston @ Washington

    Carlo blocked a shot earlier and he’s not on the bench. Of fucking course.
