    Re: 10 reasons why the B's will win the Cup in 2010

    dkrejci46, one point that bears on this discussion is that Mr. Jcobs COULD HAVE lessened the hit from Murray's buyout by agreeing to his terms, rather than letting the thing go to court.  It would have cost JJ more out of pocket, but left something like 800,000 more in our cap space, which would have come in mighty handy now. 

    Also, they could have left Shaeffer in Providence.  He wasn't even playing first line there, which shows you how much he cares about his career.  Third maybe.  If he was left stranded there, that would have left something like 500,000 more on our cap space.

    Then we would have been at some 2.6 million instead of 1.3, much closer to what it will take to retain Kes.  Maybe one roster player to go instead of two.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: 10 reasons why the B's will win the Cup in 2010 : Really? All of your glasses seem to be half empty.  How can you seriously call yourself a Bruins fan if you are that negative about the team?  You make some decent points but, you have far too many and you go way too far on all 10.  It's one thing to be realistic, it's another to expect 82 wins like you seem to.  Every team has their issues but, there is no reason to be as bitter as you are about this team.  Do you even enjoy/look forward to Bruins games?

    IceGoalie3014 is right on the mark. We haven't yet seen a team win 82 games-even the Bruins teams with Phil and Bobby which were amoung the best teams ever.

    I don't spend every moment of my life on this forum, so take it easy.
    Manny is no longer on the books...yeah, I get it. That wasn't my point. My point (which you ignored) was that his contract did hamstring them for the time he was there, and more important, it was a stupid signing following a year in which they struggled to score, not keep pucks out of the net. Since you've found excuses for every move PC/JJ have made--and many have been questionable--I felt it was right to point out that the Manny deal was a bust.

    As Clamshack pointed out, JJ also could have bought out Murray earlier and let Schaeffer do his thing w/the baby Bs and they could have had more $$$ to sign kess with. JJ isn't just about being a skinflint, he also carries the arrogance that comes w/this team's hard line stance over the decades...i.e. players should be so proud to put on the spoked B that any salary demands or financial disputes will be met w/our defiance, even at the expense of the overall team's chances to win.

    meanwhile the results speak for themselves. You;re too young to understand the frustrations of fans who have watched this team over the decades either come close but refuse to go the extra mile to get that extra player that will put them over the top or simply put a bunch of tomato cans on the ice knowing fans will line up to buy $10 beer anyway and JJ lines his vault either way.

    All your maneuvering scenarios regarding moving Kessel smack of exactly what this team has done for years, cap regardless: Let a super-talented player go when his contract is up. Like I said (and you continue to ignore) when this is your MO, the result is a team that never gets a chance to gel and grow with its very best players.

    There is a reason for a 37-year Cup drought, and if you think this team is so good now, why did they get knocked off by a decent but nothing special Carolina team last year? Now you want to go into this season w/out Kessel and think the B's have an even better shot? Demand more of your team rather than just shaking the pom poms.

    A fool and his predictions once (and always) make for great laughs around here, no question.
