? Felger talks about it quite a bit (whines and moans most of the time, but oh well not much different from a whole bunch of people in Montreal), and they have Thornton and Ciarelli in interviews regularly every week (I love Thornton's interviews). Definitely not hearing as much about it currently as I would like to mostly because Pats and Celts are owning the league and Red Sox just decided to make 2 blockbuster signing, but I don't feel that the coverage is that bad considering there's 4 major teams that all actually do well in the city.
I actually expected the coverage to be worse than that when I moved here 2.5 years ago, but I've been pretty happy overall. Might have been a lot worse in the years before when the Bruins had a losing team, but I wasn't there to compare.
Hearing the "Ole ole ole" and "Bleu Blanc Rouge" song during the playoffs last year on the Boston radio because they wished for Montreal to go past the Pens so they wouldn't have to face them is still one of my favorite radio moment ever Especially with the irony afterwards and how they said they jinxed it, etc...
One thing though is that I feel many don't know much about what they're talking about, more so than in Montreal. When they were asking last year to trade Toronto's pick for Kovalchuk for the end of the season I was really thinking "are you freaking insane?!".
That sums it up quite nicely. Thornton interviews are very good. Mostly it's all Pats/Sox talk, which frankly I don't care for. Felger gets into hockey at times, but he is ignorant and he knows it. He was pushing hard for Kovalchuk, and he still can't see the importance of having Chara on the team. What gives?!
I agree, the irony of the ole ole songs on Boston radio, and the general support we gave Montreal in the playoffs came back to bite us in the ass. Great run for the Habs though, that was fun to watch even for me. Admit it, Habs/Bruins in the conference final would have given us all heart problems anyways
