    Posted 04/14/2014 08:55:34 EDT

    Seguin is great, I loved cheering for him, but the Bruins got equal value in return, plus prospects.  And more importantly they saved a bunch of money that allowed them to sign Iginla.  Without Iginla more »

    This is the opponent I wanted the least. That said, if you are destined to be champion, you should fear no one. Should be exciting.

    Clinched.  What a season!  Always good to have home ice, too.

    Winners of the President's Trophy may not always win the Cup, but they do have a much better winning % than the non-President's Trophy winners.  Since PTW's win 30% of the time and the 29 non-PTW's wi more »

    This has been the best Bruins team I've ever watched.  I've especially enjoyed seeing Iginla come in and elevate his line to an even better place, Smith emerge as a high-end talent, Krug play like a t more »

    He should have been suspended for his late hit on Horton a couple years ago.

    He was never a tightwad. Pre-cap he just didn't spend more than he took in like a few teams were doing. Since was a bit of a jerk (and short-sighted) when it came to spending on role players, but the more »

    Resting is good, avoiding injury is good and giving prospects a few games is good.  It's all good.  I'd like to see Spooner and Fraser in a handful of games.  I'd like to know if Spooner is back up to more »

    He's a great fit and really raised the talent level of the Bruins.  A measurable improvement over Horton.  I'd love to see him back. Moving Kelly is the obvious first move for next season.  I don't th more »

    Absolutely.  The rule is completely vague.  I believe it stems from its origin that in hockey it was originally intended that body contact was supposed to be simply stepping between the player and the more »

    'Gliding' has no mention in the rule. Orpik used distance traveled to deliver a violent hit. That's a charge.   In response to Not-A-Shot's comment: [QUOTE] In response to OatesCam's comment: [QUOTE] more »

  • Posted 03/31/2014 09:46:47 EDT

    No one did that to Gretzky because he always had his head up and was aware of his surroundings.  It wasn't because they were scared or didn't try. The Orpik hit is charging.  A clear penalty and possi more »

    Kane is a big hole, but this should be fun to watch.

    I wonder if we are going to see a few funky games out of the Bruins after the streak or do they come out hotsile after a so-so effort in the loss?

    Time.  If you want to build a monster team, you stockpile young talent.  But it takes time. It's not just the drafting and the losing, but also the development.  Their best players are all 23 and unde more »

    Emelin's hit was a clean, beautiful hip-check. Lucic doesn't like it because he's 6'4" and top heavy, so high hits are to his advantage - low hits favor players who are shorter and stocky. The only th more »

    It's not good to demote someone when they are not getting results.  You can damage confidence.  And saying he's a grown man or a pro is garbage.  Everyone is the same, regardless of level.  A coach ne more »
