About Me: Love the Sox/Bruins/Pats, born in Boston a million years ago, now displaced. Played and coached in a much simpler time. Oh, and soccer is not a sport.

    1. You dont change the outcome of a game, even a perfect game, because you didnt like a call. You couldnt do it in any other game, so why bend the rules because this one is "special?" 2. Torre, in his more »

    Still not seeing how a player like Marchand could be in a C+ range. Maybe the disagreement on the 4th line individual grades is that that maybe they arent the best 4th line in hockey any more.  They d more »

    This matchup is an absolute disaster.  All Ive worried about re: the Bruins was getting matched against Detroit.  This will be like 2012, Washington all over again... all the geniuses think the standi more »

    I could not believe the Wings couldnt get past the cupcake Carolinas last night.  Mickey Redmond complained they look like a team that just wrapped up a playoff spot.  They did, they went to sleep. So more »

    You think he "will" be a good backup?

    The late goal against routine was a serious flaw last year in the regular season, and they seemed to button it up in the playoffs until the Chicago series.  Then G1 and G6 it reared its ugly head agai more »

    Spooner in to rest any of the regulars is a good thing, although I just can't watch Caron any more.

    Any idea what's wrong with Horton?

    I thought it was a lock that Det was 7 and Col was 8, but Columbus has forgotten how to lose and the Wings seem happy to take whatever spot they get.  They play Pitt & Stl in their last 3 games, too. more »

    Rask keeping the B's in it through 3 OTs and finally losing is one of your "examples" of blaming Rask for everything but the Kennedy assassination?  Brilliant. Of course Thomas stinking the building o more »

    Columbus starts with a 1-0 lead?

    Columbus looks primed to pass Detroit, who plays Pitt and Stl at the end, for 7th place.

    Pre-season quality dull game to sit through. Early and late goals were annoying, but they skated away from every check and looked like they were scrimmaging out there.  I get it, but please dont get i more »

    The article says he's missed time with a previous injury (a sprain) to the same wrist. However, acting like he was shot is a little embarrassing for him.  He should watch Krejci vs Philly break his in more »
