January 30th Bruins articles

Got some interesting stuff today. Even some trade talk mentioned which is why I'm posting these so early.

Herald articles

Pitiful loss puts jobs on line for dreary B’s: Rangers roll as trade talk grows
Lewis still waiting for leader to step up
Stuart might be first to go

The last article had some interesting stuff about Stuart, teams the Bruins are talking to, and that the Bruins are prepared to dump Boyes for nothing more than a draft pick.

Globe articles

Switch pulled, power still out
Bruins are frozen in place
Sabres thumbnails

Terry O can post any I might miss or aren't up yet. Goodnight LF'ers. Hopefully today's game will be better for both the Bruins and the fans.

Sources also said the Bruins are prepared to dump second-year forward Brad Boyes, who was scoreless for a 14th consecutive game, for nothing more than a draft pick.


That wouldn't be too smart. Deal a young forward
who has shown promise when his value is at
an all-time low? I think we can afford to wait and
see a little longer with Boyes.

I find it interesting how Lewis puts the blame on Thomas so quick.

Sounds like a man desperate to put the blame somewhere other than himself.

Shady goaltending will kill your team's confidence.
That said, the goaltending plain out sucks, the D are horrible and the forwards are terrible.
Too bad we didn't have a consistent 1st stringer

The only thing is we continued to grind it out,” Lewis said. “We didn’t have any quit. We kept going at them. We battled to the end, and we’ll do it again (tonight in Buffalo). It’s a devastating loss. We’re going to pull ourselves up and be ready to play (tonight).
Was he watching the same game?

there is no way he did. we were blatantly outworked from the get go. the rags beat us to every loose puck and so obviously wanted it more it was embarrassing.

maybe, he has a schrewd psychological approach. blame the goalie so the players, embarrassed by their lack of effort, attempt to squelch their distain for the "system" and actually show up to support their goalie.

After reading these articles it is frightening that there are still people who dont want Lewis fired. Last year Sullivan was the wrong guy for the situation, but Dave Lewis is flat out clueless. At least Sullivan's team played hard and he addressed problems. I cant even stomach another game of this loser, nevermind four more seasons.

I agree. Hopefully the writer's sources are wrong. It's sad to watch Boyes play lately; I can hardly believe he's the same player. Aside from his scoring last year, he was also more physical. Not a punishing hitter, of course, but I remember so many times someone would try to hit him and Boyes was strong on his skates and that guy would go down to the ice. I don't remember that at all this year. That said, I think it's too early to give up on him and why trade him for next to nada?

I am up in the air about trading Boyes....he has been useless for the month of January, but he is young and might have it in him to bounce back. I would rather see trades of the UFA's like Sturm and Stuart first, before just giving up on Boyes. BUT, he has pretty much sucked this year so......

Not that I disagree, I think it's just that people give other people a chance is all.
Is 40 games enough time to evaluate a coach?
Not here, but it sure can say a lot about the GM who picked him.
I wanted Lombardi and Crawford, but LA is sucking too. That doesn't mean I'd blast them out in 40 games however. This is a bad program here, and it's going to take a little time. With Lewis? Probably not, but fair is fair.

I'm not a fan of Crawford, but he didnt have our team.

On paper we look like at least a top-6 team in the east, on the ice we look like a top-3 team for the draft

And you never blame you're goaltender, Thomas stole a lot of game by himself

To blame others, is to excuse yourself.

Gonzo, its more than the results after 40 games. It is the constant lack of preparedness, lack of aggression, the no sense of urgency, the failure on his part to hold anyone besides a fourth line rookie or #6 defenseman accountable.

I am secure in my gut instinct...this guy is not the coach for us.

I'm not far from agreeing here, trust me. My statement is simply based on principal, and I want to see this team; this management, start to make sense and then stick to their guns. Maybe start that next time? Could be they need to eat this hiring, that is true. Look at what St.Louis is doing with one guy we could have had. They could make the playoffs, and I've always said built or re-building -- in this league you need to make the playoffs. It sets the bar, and it teaches those whom you are growing with -- what it takes.

It's frightening how poorly run and misguided this organization appears to be right now.

We are not contenders. We should be hoarding young talented players, not dumping them.

And it seems to me that the players have totally tuned him out. Or is that even possible when it "seems" he doesn't say jack squat anyway.

I don't care if the players listen to the Coach or not. I only care that they win -- or die trying.
