Felger wants Lucic to go back to being a goon. Awesome.

He's partially right. I don't want or think Lucic needs to revert to being a goon, but he does need to get back to the physical part of his game. He needs to get back to intimidating other players and using his physicality to create space/turnovers for his teammates to capitalize on. He's become more of a finesse player and gotten away from the part of his game that made him special.

I agree. I do think part of that is some of the calls against him may have made him a bit timid.

I think Lucic will aways be under the microscope. If he's hittig and fighting, he should be scoring more...if he's scoring, he's not hitting and fighting enough.

You want them to talk about the Bruins training camp that won't start for over a month? "Yeah, that Hamilton kid should be pretty good."

There's only so many ways you can break down the same sports story, with the same sports people, with no sports of interest going on. Yeah, it's sports radio, but good god is it tedious to listen to when nothing of interest is happening.
The NHL and NHLPA met today with the future of the season hanging in the balance. I'll bet they didn't even mention it.

Used to respect Mr. Haggerty. Not anymore. His trashing of Tim Thomas (regardless of what one thinks per Tim's behavior & subsequent exit) is gratuitous & nakedly self-serving. He knows Tim's gone for good, why not cut him down to build yourself up?

In the sports media biz as presently constituted, the coin of the realm is face time, making yourself the story (CHB), and becoming a minor celeb. That's where the money is, and Haggerty, like so many in his profession, understands that one must make hay while the sun is high. Why are Felger, et. al. spread so thin & ubiquitious? 'Cause they gotta "crush it" while the crushin's good.

Bob Beers made a good point on F&M. It went from 3 guys to around 50 writers in the Bruins locker room, a lot of them from electronic media, and they all want that story that'll help them stand out. Have to keep that agenda in mind.

Beers certainly didn't rush out to defend Thomas other than "he's a goalie, what can you do"....when asked by Felger if he's a good teammate.

Thanks for posting this link. Something of a gift in the dead of August. A good ten to fifteen minutes of knowledgable hockey talk. Note Chia's relatively -- relative to 98.5 -- engaged demeanor.

Thanks again,

Hard for Chia to have good hockey talk amidst the interviews of mentally ill homeless people and naughty Mazzarotti bits.

It only took shunning the White House, denouncing same-sex marriage, and bailing on his teammates + employers whilst still under contract, but Tim Thomas has finally lost his Godlike/can-do-no-wrong status he has enjoyed since 2006.

love Felger but he has jumped the shark- what has happened to this guy; everything is negative, everything is a conspiracy, he looks for something wrong in everything.

Love the shot Beers took at him yesterday about going after the player, the owners, the fans, and now the media Felger has become a characture of himself which is to bad

Not to defend Felger because it's more than obvious what his schtick is, but the players have sucked. The ownership group has enabled the players to act the way they've been acting. The fans have become more about attending the event rather than the outcome of the game. And the local media has been scooped repeatedly by the national media about what's really happening with this team. Pretty accurate all around, IMO, despite Felger trying to sensationalize it even more than it is.

Felger atleast has an opinion and he will express it. Is he wrong alot? sure, but he's also right alot and will put his name on things. I listened to EEI for years, and never heard a real opinion or anyone who dare be critical of any of the local teams, unles it was hockey of course.
