Thank You Bruins.

Dear Bruins..

Thank you, for giving me the best 18 months of my 36 year sports watching life. Thank you for making every second watching and every second crying from heartbreak worth it with the Stanley Cup in 2011 and letting me walk with my chest puffed out a little more with my Bruins tshirts on this past year.


People here will say you suck, will say blow it up, will say fire this guy, trade this guy, but you know what? They can bite my chunk. You gave us the team and defining moment of our lifetime (atleast those to young for Orr) and I cannot be more proud to be called a Bruins fan for life.

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and I have no doubt, 2011 will not be the last time you raise the Cup in the near future. You recovered from the Hurricanes loss and Flyers debacle to win it all, and you will do it again. I have no doubt you will come back stronger and better, and have something to prove. You now know winning the Cup is not the hardest thing to do it your life. Winning it AGAIN is.

Awesome. Well said man. No need for any negativity around here. Criticism sure, but the future here is damn bright.

Agreed. I never expected another deep run. There's a reason cup winners usually go out early

But even though you did, you guys took it right down to the wire. Thanks for another fun season. And thanks for allowing me to watch the next few rounds with a lot less indigestion, haha

Never thought Id ever see them win a cup. Its been a great run (and a lot of hockey) over the past two seasons. There are a few quick fixes but there is a real good young core on this team with some talent coming up and (I think) some money to spend. We had the chance to repeat mostly intact and came up short. Changes will be made where they need to and hopefully we compete for a cup every year!

Great season, terrific last season. Sucks the reign has to end on this note, but Seguin and all of our young guys are just beginning to progress in their careers.

We'll be back. Thanks for a great two seasons. There's no sport like hockey.

Awesome post. We'll come back strong next year. We were missing our most clutch player. Hopefully Horty will be 100% healthy next year.

Also can't forget McQuaid's epic pinch that led to Horty's goal last year in Game 7 against the Habs. Both guys were sorely missed.

Thank you for the look at the Cup last year, and thank you for your efforts this year. You are the very best, although I bet you're second-guessing all the carousing last summer

Hell *** yes. The Bruins will have half a year to heal and regroup and stoke the fire to destroy. We're going to have a lot of fun for a number of years.

What a fantastic year, Boston Bruins! Thank YOU!

As much as I may hate your team sometimes, you guys got a great future, nothing to be ashamed about at all. I hope the Leafs can get to that level sometime in the near future, I want nothing more than to have that beautiful feeling of seeing your team win it all, even if only once in my lifetime. Until that happens, I and other Leaf fans have no right to talk **** to you guys.

Yep! Had a lovely run. Just didnt have our best in the end. If we did it would have been over early. Love my team, and look forward to see how the rest of the series plays out ( Go Blues, and Kings!)

The future is oh so bright! Hamilton, Knight, etc.

Next year will be great! I look forward to another parade in 2013

As much as I hate the bruins because of my fave team there's no shame in their season. It's extremely hard to repeat and most teams after the lockout even made the playoffs after the finals. I expect them to be even stronger and well rested next year.

BTW, Bergeron is a warrior. Too bad the guy played injured and it didn't work out. Really like him.

Thanks indeed, for the end of last year, the great summer watching you all enjoy the cup, and an incredible run in Nov/Dec. Given the injuries at the end, and lack of powerplay all year, I was glad to see the fight still in the players. Didn't want to end it this way, on a cheap goal, but am not disappointed like when we lost out to Philly or Carolina.

Rest well, draft or trade well, and come back even better next year. I'd like to think Chia knows even better what he can and can't get away with in the off-season and trade deadlines.....

I think the cup win humbled me.

I waited 22 years for them to win it all, I'm willing to wait another 22 honestly.

Very well said!!

I'm damn proud of this team. If I'm feeling bad, it's because I know they feel terrible. They left it all on the ice, but repeating in this day and age is almost impossible. Even if they'd beaten Washington, without a healthy Bergy I don't think they were going to get much further.

Can't wait to see Dougie and Co. at development camp!

When it comes down to it this was kind of like a bridge year heading into the start of the season, and we're still an up-and-coming young team. The run in November and December increased expectations a lot but with key players injured hard to be too disappointed (except for with the power play).

Here's to 2 cups in 3 years, 3 cups in 4 years, etc!
