For someone cheap, he's let Chiarelli assemble a winning core with a potential future Hockey Hall of Fame goaltender (Thomas) and defenseman (Chara), turned a perceived downard asset (Kessel, who has worked out great for you guys by the way) into a bounty and so on.

The Bruins haven't missed playoffs since when, a bit iin the 80s/90s?
I WISH my owner was that cheap and that awful.
Jacobs is allowed to keep his house as he sees fit; he's allowed to dislike escalating salaries and he's allowed to steer his ship and offer his opinion on the league.

He is ONE voice in the process, remember?
