that's some ******** scheduling

and to think jacobs' team gets a sweetheart schedule the first 2 months and he was all for the lockout.

I'd rather play more games early. You get the injuries out of the way in February. Boston has an extra 4 games to play between now and the playoffs. That means a very packed March/April. They're going to get banged up and run out of gas right before the playoffs start.

Well one of Boston's games was snowed under so it should be 15. This happens every year where a couple teams have a disproportionate # of games compared to everyone else. It was always a running gag that the Rangers would get more early season games to pad their point total.

Normally I'd agree but this year with the lockout I think it's better to ease back into the flow before you get crushed with the back to backs. And Boston will probably have enough of a playoff cushion that they can afford to rest guys later.

Just heard about DiPietro going on waivers. Sucks for the guy, he was actually a decent goaltender before all those injuries hit him. Somehow always stepped up his game whenever he played us.

i was looking at their schedule, and boston barely has any back 2 back games compared to some other teams. 7 in total. they only have 5 remaining.

Lou did modernize a little with DeBoer as opposed to recycling another trap coach.

And Burke won a Cup post-lockout so I don't know how outdated he is. He did get lucky with Nieds and Pronger but built a solid group of forwards there nonetheless. Toronto finally looks like they've improved with his talent this year.

Just came to post this, damn I am slow. So the trash can was waived. I'd be shocked if he didn't clear. Who would want that contract?

I figured they'd keep him for the cap hit though.

Maybe this is a sign of them actually turning things around?

Doesn't the cap hit count now regardless? Or is that next season?

Well according to Katie Strong they keep a cap hit of $3.6 million on him this year at least.

I think Shanny does those videos because he likes the sound of his own voice and it makes him feel smart and important.

I was so confused as to why the wheel was different when I spun it with Giroux, and then I realized

I am a big fan of playoff setting/shea webber mode activated.

Also you are right. DePietro getting waived is the perfect way to know Bleed isn't around today.

At least we only have to play the Isles once more this season. What they're probably gonna do I'm assuming is send him to Bridgeport. Then they bring up another goalie. Probably that blimp Nilsson that gave us all kind of problems last year. Maybe Poulin though cause he's seemed to have been up more.

I guess this puts the odds of DP being bought out this Summer very high?

This isn't that far off from what happens in real life with Datsyuk.

The wheel says Taylor Hall's hit on Clutterbuck will be deemed a hockey play.

Hearing is going on right now, I think.

Nash is STILL out. People are saying on NHL.com that if they don't disclose the reason he isn't playing, its personal.

Didn't they say it was head related when he first went down?

Ya I would assume this means DiPetro is getting bought out.
