1. I was a Bruins fan while you were still pooping your shorts. Can remember watching every excruitiating moment of the 'too many men on the ice' game (look it up), plus Klima's 3OT winner after Wesley missed the open net and eberything in between...been bleeding BlackNGold since I was 5.
2. I want nothing more for them to succeed. I would trade humilations and "I told you so's" galore from the likes of you and every other Bruins pollyanna who thinks this team is sakting away w/the Cup this year. Seriously. I'd love for nothing more than to be wrong about this team/franchise.
3. That is such a naieve question as to hardly merit a response. JJ pays everyone's salary. Hires the GM. Tells PC what he wants and at what cost. The salary cap is a red herring when you absolve the owner of any responsibility. Had he sat down w/PC earlier they could have looked at a guy like Kessel and said "we're gonna need him when his contract comes up." Then maybe they wouldn't have overpaid Thomas, gone to court w/Murray and spent $3.3 M on Morris. Not to mention the plain and simple fact that responsibility for any franchise, company, business organization starts at the top. It's his team for crying out loud, and the record of failure is there for all to see.
4.No, I did NOT think they had a chance to win the Cup last year b/c there were so many teams better than them, and that was proven so in the playoffs. As Bill Parcells was fond of saying "you are what your record says you are", and the Bruins were ousted in Round 2 by a pretty mediocre club. THIS YEAR they're coming back w/virtually the same team MINUS THEIR NUMBER ONE GOAL SCORER. So yes, they're worse off this year.
Finally--just saying "I know more about hockey than you ever will" doesn't make it so...it's just a stupid, arrogant statement of meaninglessness made by a person who resorts to calling anyone an "idiot" who doesn't agree with their point of view. Again--no surprise that you're just 21 years old. Kids your age think you know everything when the reverse is almost always true.
We'll see who's right come playoff time. You better get your excuses for their ouster ready now.
