Really, a big difference between the two is how they handled lockouts in their sports. Jacobs (allegedly?) was a driving force behind two lockouts that cost the NHL significant games. Kraft was credited as being a voice of reason by friends and foes alike during the NFL lockout, and one of the reasons the NFL didn't lose any regular season games.
true but Kraft was thought of like this even before the lockout. I rememer them having issues with Wilfork's last contact as well.
The B's extend who they want to. Since chia took over they do it early and do it well but JJ gets no credit for that while Kraft is the man even though they haev training cap contract issues almost every year like the Bruins did under Sinden/OC. I still believe it was 90% sinden 10% Jacobs that was the problem. If it was 90% Jacobs why did so much change when Sinden finally retired. I don't see a guy Like Jacobs changing that much at that age after that many years of doing business. And for that to happen at the same time as new management comes in. Sorry don't buy it.
