I don't find the Rangers system too boring, not like the old Devils, at least.

BUT, the midday games between Boston-NY always seem to be soooo sloooow.

Zero chance it's not a packed house. Saturday night, home opener against a rival? Some like to talk tough about not going, but most will use their tix. And those that won't, will sell them. Nobody's just going to eat them to "make a point."

And I don't care if the Bruins play the Little Sisters of the Poor. Drop the puck!

Is it confirmed that we play the rags? Meh. Games against them have a history of being snoozefests and we'll probably lose (lundqvist has our number). If it wweren't the season opener I'b be seriously considering to watch the pens-flyers hatefest... but it is the season opener

Taking the positives, a) It's a statement game early on, b) I'm hoping for a matinee () and c) I'll get to wear my first ever bruins jersey for the first time, ven if it's only with a buddy in front of the laptop

Why don't the rags just play redden on the bottom pairing? I've heard reports that he could still hack it there and it's not like they are stacked at that position, i mean last year Bickel or so had 5 mins of TOI in a 3 OT playoff game...

That's unfortunate, the Rengers are always the most boring matchup

I don't particularly find the Rangers physical in the same way they B's are with the Flyers, Sharks or other teams. I am not a huge fan of "everybody collapse in front of the goalie and block shots" style of play. It works against the Bruins like a charm, but it isn't the most entertaining style of hockey.

Be glad this isn't a problem for the Bruins to solve. Sure we have the Thomas problem, but that one was a problem before the new CBA.

I bet it is packed too. I don't think the lockout in the end hurts the Bruins organization that much-although it may in the end hurt some of the small market teams.

whenever the B's play the Rags I really want to just see them drop bombs from the point all night. If they insist on getting in front of shots, make them pay for it. We do have the most dangerous slapshot in the league after all.

Nice to see they ditched those NHLPA jerseys and are back in their regular Bruins gear.

That may be, but since the Rags are the real Prez trophy winners (I consider the leader in team FM's to be more important than the leader in points) , then our boys better be ready for some willing dance partners.

Too bad it's not an afternoon game. I have to work at 8p that day. Maybe I'll be able to take a vacation day.

Sucks that it's against the boring Rangers but at least it's Bruins hockey. Talk about a ****** way to start the season up though.
