Good to see the Bruins fan whining even more about their team than the opponents. Whats he excuse for todays game?!?
I remember reading that he arrived at the camp out-of-shape. Maybe that's why he can keep up with the play this season?

Pick 1 of about 6 players that went on to solid NHL careers instead of Hossa and the Damphousse trade is viewed as a solid return. We also got a 2001 2nd rounder in that deal that was sent to CBJ to have them take Chabot in the expansion draft instead of one of our goalies.

We received Souray+the immortal Josh DeWolf+a 2001 2nd rounder for Malakhov. That 2001 2nd rounder then went in the Zubrus/Linden for Bulis/Zednik/2001 1st (Perezhogin) trade.
I am fully aware of the situation the team was in, I just don't see how it changes anything from a fan perspective to see 3 of your favorite players dealt away for scraps. At least the godawful Turgeon trade got us a player that was much appreciated here beforehand in Corson.

yeah, its actually a pretty big game between the sens/leafs. While not impossible, the leafs will have a very tough time making up 4 points with an extra game played at this time of the season.

Although, one may figure that its better to finish 6th than 5th... so maybe the leafs have the upper hand after all

Didn't guy have a kid? It's a different element I bet. I'm too young to know but I'm sure his mind isn't always on the game anymore.

The win today pushed them to 5th worst...2 points away from 10th worst. Hopefully they play slightly better than .500 the rest of the way and get far away from the bottom 4.

They won the cup.

Marchand won the cup. Chara won the cup. Lucic won the cup. Campbell won the cup. Boychuck won the cup. Claude Julien won the cup.

Never feel sorry for them.

Ever wonder if someone 'not named' Colin Campbell wouldn't have been chief of NHL's disciplinary machine we would all be saying that ?



Remember, this is the man who called Chara's hit a 'Hockey Play'

For a 2nd in 2013 and a conditional 5th.

STL has been looking for a 2nd pairing LD for a long-time.

Badabing!

I'm not a fan of generalizations or cheap insults, but whenever some juvenile Bruins fan wrings out the tired '9-11' cliche or talks about the Habs having 'no class' or 'no respect', I am so tempted to remind them of those racist tweets and Lucic's disgusting personal behaviour.

Thing with Lucic is his game is based almost entirely on his strength when driving for the net. He's a bowling ball, only not as smart. He seems to lack the I.Q. to compensate when his brute force is minimized.

It would be the same thing. I actually attribute refs putting away whistles in game 7 vs TBL as a bigger reason they advances. TBL having the deadly powerplay were put at ES all game and still lost only 1-0 I believe. Imagine if they got a single PP they deserved.

I agree with you on the bruins fan portion. The worst part being I don't even know of anyone who called 911 so the insult is entirely ignored. Even with vancouver and montreal's riots boston has a higher crime rate so meh. It's essentially just noise for me when someone doesn't want to talk hockey.

As for Lucic, he's a unique player but not perfect. The reason Lucic will not be as effective going into the future is fairly simple. He's human. The guy is strong and a good physical player but bruises and injuries happen. No way this guy continues to play on the edge until he's 35. His body can't handle it. That's why he's slowing down for the good of his health and the longevity of his career.

Leopold traded for all of a 2nd and a conditional 5th this season.

The market for d-men really advantages sellers. We have to accept parting ways with one of our 2nds.

With them it's always 'do as I say, not as I do'.

What great times for Bruins haters: embellishment city, they were leading us by 2 (twice) then lost, they almost didn't care because Iginla was coming to Boston and they lose another game today. I love it.

I remember some threads on the main board about our good start and some of them simply replying "3:3". Finishing first in the east was a pure formality for them. Good times.

So did Iginla score in his debut for the Big Bad Bruins? He surely owes them one for costing them the game against the Habs, distracting his -now- current team with the trade rumors?
