Agree. It would be better if he were to retire; love his presence but his voice has really deteriorated.

We should, though, project a holograph of him from back in the day, and just play that every game night.

I don't wish to be unkind, but it's all bellowing vibrato. Rene should retire.

Jokes are all I have now. After trading for John Scott, we haven't just hit rock bottom, we're on our way to China. I've actually reached a point watching Therrien/Bergevin stare in mindless disbelief is more entertaining than the actual games.

Fun fact: The last time Montreal was this bad, was 1940.



No. Rask needs to start. That'll just make us getting demolished look even worse. We're going for broke!

Does anyone have a recollection about this 1972 movie? I am posting it here as the trailer has some great Bruins footage from the early 70's.

I found a review in the Harvard Crimson written by John Powers who would go on to a long career writing sports for the Boston Globe.

http://www.thecrimson.com/article/19...ib-suppose-it/

Quote:
I SUPPOSE IT had to happen eventually. Someone had to combine the making-of-a-champion motif of Downhill Racer with the sentimental mawkishness of Love Story, and set the whole thing inside Maple Leaf Gardens. The result is what you might expect.

Billy Duke, rising Toronto superstar. Fast on his skates. A little slower with his mouth, but that's all right. He's honest, and his mind is clean. Sherri Lee Nelson, rising bubblegum folk singer. Well-scrubbed, blonde, vivacious. Smokes dope occasionally, but she's basically committed, one understands, to making this world a better place for all of us to live in.

"A story of two people...two worlds...one love. These two should never have been in love...but they were." This movie, Winter Comes Early, should never have been made...but it was. Unfortunately, we'll be stuck with it until someone finally decides to do a little more work and come up with an incisive documentary of ice hockey. Producer John Bassett, a Canadian sportsman with financial interests in both the Maple Leafs and the Toronto Argonauts football team, never really comes close.

Bassett's major mistake is that he even went anywhere near the story line of Love Story in the first place. In recent Boston newspaper interviews, he scorned Ryan O'Neal's performance in that film, saying that he had set ice hockey back several decades. It seems strange, then, that he would adapt the Love Story theme almost in its entirety for what he hoped would be a fresh, penetrating look at one of the two most violent games in the world
Appears it was released in Canada with the title Faceoff

Yes, great footage throughout the movie indeed. And it was re-released as Face Off on DVD a few years ago. Good collectors item.

Absolutely!

I remember when it came out i was a huge Sanderson fan (still have a picture as a kid with me wearing a "Derek Is Unreal" tee shirt, i lived in that thing), so it was a much see.

Had a thing for Trudy Young after the movie, she played such a 'cool' hipster chick in the film.

Man, nice blast from the past.

Here is a full broadcast from 1989 that appeared would be an easy Bruins win.

Not exactly - but it was great hockey to watch.

Rene singing the anthems in 1985

This game was played on March 18, 1985 and notice who is behind the bench.

The PA announcer was Joel Perlmutter who thought he could scam Jacobs on tickets and lost everything and he died in 2001 at the age of 46.

The flag waver was a season ticket holder from Melrose and he was banned from the Garden by Harry a couple of years later when he waved the Quebec provincial flag instead of the Canadian Maple Leaf before a Nords game.

Scene I: Bruins management & staff are in Claude Julien's office. They are discussing tonight's game against Montreal:

Don Sweeney(constantly scanning his cell phone for proposed deals): You know Claude, with all the new guys on the team I'm not sure they truly understand what it means to play against those mother bleepers.

Claude(munching on KFC Extra Crispy): Hmmm....better have a talk with them. *Burps* Jay, (Pandolfo former Bruins whipping boy & present assistant coach) get the team into the locker room!

Scene II: Bruins locker room. The entire team is assembled and the new guys are wondering what this is all about.

Danton Heinen (rookie winger): I wonder what this is all about?

David Backes (new Bruins UFA signing) No idea. Hopefully it's not a reaming. Hitch used to get on us all the time back in St. Louis...no wonder we didn't have anything left for the playoffs.

*Claude strides into the room and faces his squad*

Claude: I want to talk to you about tonight's game. You are members of the Boston Bruins. One of the Original 6 franchises of the National Hockey League. It is both an honor and a privilege to wear that Spoked B on your sweater. Tonight we play the Montreal Canadiens who are also an Original 6 franchise. Now maybe you new guys don't know this but Montreal is, has been and always will be our most hated opponent. No other team even comes close. No Marchy, not even Vancouver (everyone looks at Brad Marchand who made one of the Sedin twins his personal ****** during the 2011 Cup Final) Now let me make this clear to all of you: You are the Boston Bruins. You have the best equipment and the best training money can buy. You are going to whip those poutine swilling sons of ******es every time you step on the ice. You're not just going to check them out of the play, you're going to check them 30 rows back into the stands. You're not just to defend your goalie when those jackwagons try to pile in on him, you're going to sweep that crease so clean you can eat your dinner off of it. You're not just going to fight those Montreal mother ******* you are going to beat them to such a pulp their own mothers won't recognize them. Why? Because they are Montreal. The Evil Empire of the NHL. The New York Yankees of the NHL. The biggest collection of diving, whining and cheap shotting swine you will ever encounter in your NHL career. Remember, there is a reason why they wear a toilet seat logo on their sweaters. That is all.

*Claude leaves the room. The new guys are shocked. They have never heard such angry words from their coach. Except when they fail to back check. Then they get it both barrels...*

Brandon Carlo (rookie defenseman) Wow. Claude really hates them.

Zdeno Chara (The Captain): And with good reason my young partner. Anyone who has coached or played against them despises them for they are a prize collection of ********** on skates. They are the opposite of what we Bruins are about. Never never forget that.

Tuukka Rask(5-15-3, .909SV% lifetime vs Habs): I don't know guys. We haven't beaten them here in 4 years. I don't think we can do this.

Chara: What? What was that you said? To hear you talk the game is over already. Well **** you. **** that. The game isn't over until the final siren sounds. Was it over when the Maple Leafs were up on us 3-1 during that playoff game? Was it over when the Sox were down 0 games to 3 against the Yankees in 04? Was it over when the Sox were down 2 games to 3 against the Reds in 75?

Rob O'Gara (rookie defenseman): Red Sox? 75?

David Krejci (veteran center): Forget it he's rolling. Besides you weren't even born yet.

Chara: Hell no! And it ain't over now! This could be one of our best games of the season. I don't care if a Montreal fan does call the police from his seat in the Garden when I plaster a smurf into the glass. I know the surrounding Bruins fans will make his life an absolute hell until security can get there. I'm not afraid of those little toilet seat logo wearing pieces of **** and neither should any of you. Now let's go out there and smear the blood of their corpses all over our ice. This is our ****ing house and our ****ing city!!!!!!!!!




**** the Habs!!!!

‘The Tradition’ to honor ‘Cash,’ an old-school money player

http://blogs.southcoasttoday.com/bru...-money-player/





Watch out tonight, Cash, because Espo is introducing you.

Big Phil, based in Florida and still connected to his brainchild, the Tampa Bay Lightning, via broadcast work, doesn’t visit Boston for Bruins functions. He never fully recovered from the Nov. 7, 1975 trade to New York. When the Bruins and the Blackhawks were set to play for the Cup in 2013, Esposito, whose career began in Chicago, was asked to comment on the series and offered a “What do I care? They both got rid of me – screw ‘em,” type response. But he’s here tonight at TD Garden in an act of loyalty that echoes the words of late Flyers coach Fred Shero: “Win today, and we walk together forever.”

In Rink Rap’s view, the more significant piece of Cashman’s career was those later ’70s and the second transition to the young club that finished first overall and gave the Islanders their longest series as a Stanley Cup dynasty, taking them to six in the ’83 conference final.

“Our identity went from a swashbuckling bunch of guys to a team where, basically, hard work. That’s how we had to win, we had to outwork people,” said Cashman.
