It is concerning for Bruins fans but don't speak for all of us. The Leafs beat us straight up last night and are in the playoff hunt. This year is very strange with the shortened schedule and though its an outside chance that they would reach the cup finals, there's still a chance. As far as I'm concerned with a physical roster like that and some speed on the wings with some solid centers, though not the best centers, can make some noise in the playoffs if the can sort out the goaltending and if Gardiner plays well, their blue line might be solid. Not ideal, but solid. I think we'd do fine against them in the playoffs, but other teams I think would have a bit of difficulty with them.

Please speak for yourself, and not for all Bruins fans.
I don't think the Leafs are a crappy team, but are much improved from last season...and with this shortened season, anything could happen in the play-offs.

As for Peter Chiarelli, if it wasn't for him I think it could easily be 41 years and counting since the B's last Cup victory in '72.
I feel like the den mother (along with GahdenRinkRat)at times .

I have more patience because I believe all players go through rough spells. If I thought they were really lazy and not trying I would say so but I don't see that at all.

I also hate when fans boo their own players. It hurts the team. If folks think booing will inspire a player to be better than watch and pay attention. All it does is make them have no confidence.

I hate seeing the guys come out on the ice with sagging shoulders and no swagger. Savvy was great at getting the team out of a funk.

OK...I am a sap and I admit it.

Leafs fan here, watching the Bruins I think they are by far the most complete team in the NHL in terms of team system, chemistry and players. However, I think they are missing a game-breaking forward, a real sniper. That's why I thought Corey Perry would be a Bruin had he hit the UFA market, he's not none as a sniper, but he's a game-breaking forward no doubt.

But then again, Bruins already proved you can win a cup without that game-breaking forward, I personally just think it will help their cause more.

I thought the B's had a few snipers going into this short season, but a couple of guys I had in mind (Horton and Lucic) have been very disappointing to say the least, and just can't seem to "wake-up" and start scoring...but I'm still hopeful these guys can get their act together ASAP to give the Bruins a better chance for a successful play-off run... but if they (and some other players) continue to struggle, the B's might find themselves fighting for a play-off spot in April.

I know I'm not suppose to say this, but I miss Recchi and Thomas. They both led by example, and played with a lot of heart!

By saying "us Bruin fans", it seems to me that you were speaking for all of us Bruin fans whether you intended to or not...and yes, I have a problem losing to the Leafs, I actually have a problem losing to any team, but I still don't think your response to the Leafs fan was warranted.

I didn't see the in the post (#650 above) because it was a , so try to get your facts straight and be a little more courteous to other fans when they are asking a legitimate question, or don't answer them at all...and by the way, this is only a suggestion, not a lecture.

Let me make it easier for you to comprehend. The LEAF poster was being SARCASTIC in his praise of the Bruins,

That's what I was responding to. Don't suggest anything, heed your own advice.

How about we just agree to ignore each others post , I will stop speaking for ALL Bruin fans as you say I did, and you can stop being a den-mother and giving advice to other posters.

Sounds good to me, except the den-mother thing. (I am the father of 4 great kids).
I will gladly ignore your posts from now on.


P.S. I wasn't the only one who took issue with your post. The mods are always watching us!

We have a least that in common. Well 2,3, Orr, we root for the Bruins.

I went and looked at the boxscores from the B's loses and OTL's so far this year, specifically the PP;

4-3otl vs Rangers, PP went 1-5
7-4 loss to Buff, PP 0-4
4-3otl vs Rangers, 0-4
4-2 vs Buff, 1-2
4-3 vs Mtl, 0-2
4-3otl vs Wash, 1-2
3-2 vs Pitt, 1-2
2-1 vs Pitt, 0-2
3-1 vs Wpg, 0-4
3-2 vs Tor, 0-1

so in the 9 losses or otl's the Bruins went 4 for 28 on the pp for a 14.3%. in the games they lost by 1 goal, they went 3-18 so, a marginally better PP could have gotten the B's another couple wins, or at least a couple extra loser points. My biggest concern is that they only draw about 3 penalties per game in loses.
