In an effort to bolster an ailing line-up, as well as compete�with the Philadelphia Flyers, the Bruins have announced the following signings for the remainder of the season: Tim "Dr. Hook" McCracken (signed from the Syracuse Bulldogs); Gilmore Tuttle, Ogie Ogilthorpe�and Clarence "Screaming Buffalo" Swamptown (all�formerly of the Federal League). "With the loss of Chuck (Kobasew), Savard, Ference, we need some help," said Bruins' GM Peter Chiarelli. "I know these guys haven't played in a while, but the Hansons were unavailable due to a book signing tour. I think they'll really help out our team."Bruins' fans still hanging on to the�idea that the Bruins know what they're doing, or that it's the injuries and not management that is the biggest problem, are truly and sadly delusional.
