Certainly they can not afford to go to California and get 0 points like last year but in any event they have to improve at home or it won't matter.
Given that they are winning less than 50% of the games at home, i dont see how that is gonna work out.

They should be sellers, but realistically, who wants our garbage anyway?

Jack Edwards just said on NESN the Bruins will turn it around but not this year and maybe not next year but in a couple of years they will be back.

Now down to 33.9%

It's still in their own hands... but losing against islanders and red wings is not acceptable at this point. The sad thing is this isn't really about Ottawa or Toronto playing unbelievable hockey to knock us out. I think 90 points will qualify this year

With a 5 game win streak we should make it... but asking for that 5 game streak is feeling less likely by the day

If this team intends to make a trade it better do it now

Fast drop from 1/2 to 1/3. Not good, not surprising either I suppose.

It certainly is not looking good.

I have to say, I was wrong about this group. I thought getting Vatrano back and getting healthy would be a tipping point for the offense, and they have improved, but it hasn't been enough.

Now it feels like they've waited too long to assess and address their shortcomings.

Ottawa has 2 more points in 6 less games.
Toronto 2 less points in 6 less games.
Then theres Tampa with 5 points less in 2 less games.

I just didn't think they would be so bad at home......again.

You can crunch the numbers many ways but you can't get around the home record.

It's over Rock. Let's hope a few kids or college guys get a few games late in the year for a bit of entertainment.

Actually no, it isn't. The games in hand decided that.

Actually, yes it is.

33 games remaining = 66 potential points. They currently have 52, meaning there are a potential 118 pts for them if they win out. Will they? No. But, mathematically speaking, they have not been eliminated yet so they technically still control their own destiny. It doesn't matter what those other teams do with those games in hand.

Now, realistically speaking, they're not going to make it. But mathematically is a different story.

Reality won't sink in fully until they have a full 7 days off in mid-February, before heading out to West Coast trip.

That's when teams will finally blow by them in standings link a broken down car on a highway.

Until then their seeding is a complete illusion due to so many GP.

In truth, they're actually closer to bottom of the conference than qualifying.

If no major move is made before that week off, no way on Earth our GM can spin the 'playoff teams don't sell off' mantra from last year's iil-fated rhetoric.

Little to nothing from the bottom 6, and while I love Schaller`s work ethic, having him in the top 6 isn`t ideal at all. Love Quaider`s heart, but I`m tired of watching a D slower than molasses

The only thing I feel I was wrong about prior to this season was the D not getting shelled nightly but truthfully, Rask saved this teams arse more often than not. Scoring has been the surprise issue.

This team, right now, is an absolute mess and I start moving parts out immediately and not wait, first up, I ask DK to waive his clause. Guys like Hayes/Beleskey and others have no value or little value.

I move Quaider and K Miller too, on a contending team, could be a solid addition as a 5-6 D-man who doesn`t play 18 mins nightly like Quaider did last night.

This season is over, this team has nowhere near the ability to string together a significant streak of wins. Cash in your chips and start sellin.

The better question is: what spot do they draft in? We are surely due for another 14-16 overall pick. Trade some pieces now, sell, drop further in the standings

The last two years, The Bruins found themselves in a position where they were not true contenders, yet they were so close to playoff contention that it was difficult for the front office not to try and improve the team for a potential Play off bid. We all know what the front office did, in terms of adding marginal improvements which ultimately did not provide the improvements needed to secure a playoff spot.

What is needed now is a major sense of realism. This team is not going to the playoffs. So start looking at next year. There are not a lot of valuable assets to sell, no Loui type of pending UFA (yeah I know what happened with him), but there are still things that can be done. Clear out some deadweight. Play and develop youth. Whatever. But FO...Just don't kid yourself that you're one or two moves away. You're not. Don't make a kneee jerk reaction. Be smart. Be patient.

I really hope the management realizes this and starts to sell right now. Anyway, I have my doubts and fear the moment where they give away other picks for a lousy rental that does not help us anyway.

A pick in the top 10 would be a great asset and could help entice Colorado to move Landeskog here without Carlo included in the package.

I'm sure his bosses at NESN loved to hear that.

Sell at 25.
