Like many of you, I enjoy reading the opponent's GDTs and PGTs. I'm not surprised about the tears shed by Bruins fans after last night's game. But Shady Machine siad it right that pretty much every fan base has similar highs and lows.

That said, what you said about Julien is completely wrong. He's rarely known to complain to the media, often to the chagrin of Bruins fans who WANT him to go off. If you want to talk about a complaining coach, go look at Alain Vigneault. As for the video, I'm surprised people still believe this was really John Stewart. That video was made by a bitter Vancouver fan who has allowed the Bruins and their 2011 Cup win to live rent-free in his head ever since. While the video was well-done from a production standpoint, it was definitely not from The Daily Show.

I don't really look in on the Jersey threads much, but I can vouch for the Montreal GDTs. They one poster in particular, MoenInGlory, who puts together some EPIC GDTs. I also agree that they seem to have a longer leash than other fanbases, but you might say I'm a wee bit biased in my views on anything having to do with that organization.

No, but he's an arrogant, dirty coach.
Yup... for all the flak we give him on here the guy plays a big part in how classy this team keeps it off the ice.

Huge plaus to him last night too. He could have went haywire last night after the 1st but he kept his cool and stuck to a game plan that works against the B's.

The best part about it is Steigy kept calling him Brent during this and did not correct himself once.

Every time we beat Boston, I think back to the kid posting Cooke rant vids on youtube while he wore makeup and had a Taylor Swift poster behind him. Hope he enjoyed last nights game.

It was the loudest I've ever heard it there during the regular season and I've been to around 30ish games.

I'd hardly say Cooke has done "next to nothing". In fact, if you want to know exactly how much Kennedy has contributed in comparison to Cooke... he has as many points as Cooke has goals.
Two goal difference and one guy is awesome and the other is a bum? Not in my world.

You're putting words in my mouth, but if you want to go down that road... Kennedy has Craig Adams by a very healthy 1 goal + 1 assist margin right now. The offensive stalwart Deryk Engelland is also hot on his heals sitting only 1 point back.

Rather than read the Delicious Tears type threads from other fans I much prefer the threads where they go off on one or two of their own players during a GDT, just stringing cut downs one after the other. Some of the few gut-busting laughs I've had on these boards came from that exercise. When HFB fans get down on a player while the game is going on (so every post is short), the acidity of the posts is unparalleled.

"______ is so bad he makes me want to sacrifice my first born to the GM."

"Ugh. _____ you ****ing suck; why do you play hockey? Do you hate me?"

etc

You get that continuous reflex laugh thing going and it can't be beat. It's not so much any one of them is hilarious. More like it just builds up rapidly because there's 5 new posts ever second. I was reading a thread Carolina fans had for Corvo earlier in the year and I almost fell out of my chair. Plus their avatars are funny too.

-Sutter is clutch.

-Bennett is here to stay.

-Bottom six needs blown up and reassembled. Moving Dupuis down with Sutter would be a start.

-Our personnel on defense is fine. The scheme and execution could be better.
agree with everything here 100%

The arrogance was unbelievable.

the GDTs in which we're losing are always bad, but they are bad in a self-contained way. We rarely go out of our way to bash opposing franchises or fans. If opposing fans were to come to our GDTs they'd just think, 'wow, they hate their team and each other."

The irony of which is somewhat hilarious. Regardless, stuff like that is why I rarely read other team's GDTs unless a) it's a team I hate; b) they aren't playing the Pens; and c) they just got trounced. Sometimes I just need that dose of schadenfreude.

Yeah the whole "the team almost left because of attendance" shtick is the worst because it's not true as it had nothing to do with fans or attendance.

They had 200 student rush tickets for that game but I'm almost positive they have the 10am student rush online program every home game now. Sometimes they set aside 500 tickets and have students line up at the rink but that wasn't the case for the Boston game. It was just the typical 200 online student rush tickets.

It was a pretty normal night in CONSOL energy wise until the third. That's when I was finally impressed with the noise the crowd brought with them.
