Re: Rooting for .....?

obviously new to the board I am.

Welcome.

I'm not sure how the Bruins got here with that young mostly noname crew below the second line.

Deep defense and good goaltending. The former was needed as many [more]

Re: Scotty Bowman!!!

Wayne Maki/Ted Green brawl...

That predates me. I recall being 7-8 and going to games in 70 and 71 and asking my dad 'why does that one guy (Green) wear a helmet' and no one else does.

Re: Rooting for .....?

To deny it exists or say it is jealousy is …. Trumpian.

Obviously an uniformed statement in many ways.


But .. if I repeat constantly it becomes true and I can convince myself others think so too, right?

Re: Rooting for .....?

Lucic and Thornton were the last of the tough guy Mohicans. All teams, even yours, had those dinosaurs.

Even mine?

And …. how many other teams that you know have gone into the stands to fight the fans of another team? Beat them with a shoe for example?

Re: Rooting for .....?

The Bruins do have 3 of the top 15 longest NHL suspensions, and 2 of the top 3.

Sure, 2 of them are …. not so recent (Eddie Shore - 16 games in 1933 and Billy Coutu, banned for life in 1927).

But, McSorley banned for a year in 2000 [more]

Re: Rooting for .....?

It's mostly jealousy.

Is that why you dislike Washington?

I mean, sure, the Bruins have had some success in the past years. But not so much as to garner jealousy. The city of Boston overall, yes, but the Bruins, [more]

Depth vs. Stars

A little salary cap talk.

Of the final 4 teams, 3 were in the top 10 in terms of spending (Carolina was #31). San Jose #3, St. Louis #4 and Boston #9.

But not a single player with a $10M base salary. Total Salary, which counts [more]

Re: Rooting for .....?

It's funny how many people hate the Bruins.

Lots of good reasons to dislike the Bruins.

Boston success in other sports. Individual players on the Bruins, or on past Bruins teams, that other teams very reasonably despise [more]

Re: Let The Pattern Continue!!!

Ray,

There is another 'sweep related' trend that occurs when St. Louis is in the cup finals.

1968 Swept by Montreal, 1969 Swept by Montreal, 1970 Swept by Boston.

Re: Rooting for .....?

I hope Marchand gets the winning goal in OT of game 4

If that happens, he will need to do a mock Orr styled 'dive'.

Re: BLUES WIN!!!!! LET'S GO BLUES!!!!!

It was a good game. Sharks came alive late, but ... couldn't close the score gap. I do like more sharks players than Blues, but ... should be a good series. Always loved the Blues logo.

Rooting for .....?

I'm torn tonight. I think the Bruins would have a very good series with either team. San Jose has the Thornton storyline. St. Louis has long history without a cup, in part due to the epic Orr goal.

I'd be inclined to want the series [more]

With all the talk in the Episode of 'The North' and its quasi independence, I was expecting a line about it now being 'opened up' i.e. 'there is so much more North now with the wall open' or 'Winterfell is now South for [more]

Sorry, why is it the North is just going to accept your prison population?

Oh, never mind, that was another character.

Re: puck/post

wadigo,

There have been several 'dulled' sounds on pucks to post. A few good loud dings, but …. not like I remember either. They have a camera in the net. A mike should be there too.

Re: Tukku Rask

There are a number of articles comparing Rask's postseason to the one Tim Thomas had that earned the Bruins their last cup. Very similar post seasons.

Re: GoT Petition

Ken,

I saw something about this.

They should do a 10 minute short in which the Night King just rolls through everyone and everything. And end with a 'satisfied now'.

Let's be honest. There is no ending or [more]
