[QUOTE]It's amazing that the Hahvud GM has locked up a mediocre coach and a bunch of mediocre players with no trade long term bloated contracts. This is not even a young team. basically everything they tell you is bs and you people eat it up! This is a soft, mediocre talented, aging team with no leadership whatsoever. Tampa, Atlanta even Carolina will be alot better than the Bruins very quickly.....

Well, I certainly don't like your tone, but I reluctantly agree with the (assumed) premise of your post, which, unless I'm mis-reading it, is that the Bruins are a mediocre team loaded with at best mediocre talent.
This is something I've been saying (altho' not as crudely as you) for a while now, and getting reamed for it.
My point is slightly different, however, b/c for the first time in a while I think the Bruins have a solid corps which they can build around for future success: (That would be Lucic, Krejci, Seguin, Bergeron, Savard, & Rask), but right now, as we currently stand, this '10-'11 Bruins edition is destined for a 1st or 2nd round playoff KO, or should they continue to get off to lousy starts and make idiot coaching decisions like sitting Seguin in fvaor of Paille, another humiliating DNQ.
This is not--RIGHT NOW--a Stanley Cup team by ANY objective measure, despite what many dreamers on this board say otherwise. If PC can pull off some amazing acquisitions by the trade deadline given the freed up cap space (and they should create more by dumping any or all of the following: Wheeler, Ryder, and especially Paille), then that could change.
But right now, mediocre is the word that best describes these Bruins.
