    [QUOTE]Woulda Shoulda Coulda. Yes the Bruins have a history of being cheap...I agree. I think they are building a good team and using $$$ to do it. Why get frustrated? Should they have gone farther ?? Sure. But let's enjoy the sucess. Was there a gurantee the Bruins would win with Shero . A big N-O. First of all the bruins didn't have a chance to draft Malkin and Crosby. Stop acting like crybabies and enjoy the future!!

    Re: BRUINS SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN SHERO AS GM

    Wow Chowdahkid you're obviously a fairweather fan judging by you haven't noticed the difference Chiarelli's made since he came here. He stepped into the job with the Bruins as one of the worst teams in the league, and the only positive thing being that the Bruins had the #5 overall pick in the upcoming draft (Kessel). In that draft he got Kessel (a bit of a no-brainer) and Lucic (a steal already and the potential to be the steal of the draft). He went out and got Chara and Savard (both the top free agent at each position and both coming off career years) during the same summer. He brought in Claude Julien (who is up for the Jack Adam's trophy). He made several minor (though key) free agent signings this year and within 4 years has brought the team from the bottom 5 teams in the league to the top 5, a feat almost unheard of in the NHL today.
    Finally if you think a team is only a success if they win a cup then you're a moron.

    How about winning a second round matchup when your the #1 seed with home ice advantage? Is that too much to ask? Sorry but who cares about the regular season it is meaningless and I would not call one playoff choke in 3 seasons under chiarelli "success"

    This organization has not won a second round series in almost 2 decades.

    Re: BRUINS SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN SHERO AS GM

    [QUOTE]Predictable to see this kind of contrived stupidity today, as Shero's decision to join Pittsburgh instead of Boston was based almost entirely on "Which club gives me the best chance of winning a Cup?" With all due respect for Shero, who like Chiarelli had the good sense to replace the first coach he'd hired for his new team, that was a pretty easy question to answer in the spring of 2006.   Which team would YOU have preferred to GM?  The Pens, who already had Crosby, Gonchar, Fleury and Co. in place or the Bruins, who had...almost NO ONE?  Therein lies the answer.  Shero's "decision" had very little to do with Jacobs and/or salary.  It had everything to do with which team would give him the best chance of winning the soonest.  Players like Crosby, Gonchar and Fluery don't fall into GM's laps too often.  Again, I'm not belittleing the job Shero's done, but let's be honest.  It would have been pretty tough to mess up not winning a Cup with players like that already in place. 
    Posted by BruinsCountry[/QUOTE]

    Absolutely. How many years did Pittsburgh have to outright blow to be able to win the Sidney Crosby sweepstakes after picking Fleury 1st overall a couple years prior? How many teams get 1st overall that many years? How bad a GM would you have to be to f*** that one up? Maybe Mike O'Connell bad.

    Re: BRUINS SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN SHERO AS GM

    Chowdakid you're obviously retarded so i'll educate you as to why they lost. THEY WERE TOO INJURED TO STAND UP IN A SERIES. If you've been paying any attention at all you'll know that Kessel is out for 6 months and was playing injured since the Montreal Series, Krejci has been hurting even longer than that. Hunwick if you didn't notice was out completely with the spleen injury, Recchi had surgery to have a kidney stone removed BETWEEN games 6 and 7 and still played 22 freakin minutes in game 7. I could go on but that alone should prove my point. Nobody could've prevented those injuries. Chiarelli did everything he could for the team, and the team played well given the circumstances (though games 2-5 were just embarassing). The fact that Cam Ward played brilliantly and Scott Walker got one lucky bounce for a rebound means nothing. And coming up from nothing to nearly make it to the conference finals is nothing short of incredible, so why don't you go pay attention to golf because you obviously don't know anything about hockey.
    And mentioning that the Bruins haven't made it past the 2nd round in nearly 2 decades when you're trying to blame Chiarelli for this year is completely pointless to your case, but helps make mine. From what he's done putting this team together he's brought us the closest we've been to a Bruins Conference finals since  1991 is nothing short of spectacular, especially after the stuff we've had to endure the last decade.

    And O'Connell as much as I hate to say it wasn't completely stupid, though what he got in return for Thornton was. Playoff Choker or not and that we're better off now doesn't matter he moved one of the top 5 centers in the game for a cap cutting cost is pathetic and nobody should ever say what the Bruins are doing now vindicates him. Any trade involving a franchise player should include multiple high draft picks. But as for what O'Connell has done well he drafted Bergeron, Krejci, Stuart and Axlesson. He did an adequate job (with the exception of the Thornton trade) given that most of his tenure was before the cap forced Jeremy Jacobs to spend money.

    Lisdtrom played with one nut and Gonchar played with a torn MCL do you hear them whining like you are?

    Did you see how the Bruins played in Game 1? Then see how they QUIT for 3 strait games and got beat to every loose puck? Your blaming that on injuries? GET A CLUE

    Re: BRUINS SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN SHERO AS GM

    Yea Lidstrom played with one nut but if you actually watched any of the games instead of reading articles after HE WAS A NON FACTOR IN THE SERIES. Have you ever tried skating with a shoulder injury or a hip injury. It affects your skating completely, seeing as your hips are your center of gravity, and affects how you pivot on the ice and how hard you can push off on strides. The fact that you have no clue what injuries do to players tells me you're never even played a sport competitively. Yes they played through injuries but it's obvious they're hurting. You can play through the pain, doesn't mean you're going to play like an all star.

    And robert4, you're missing a key thing in your formula. Julien is a coach, Shero is a GM, not a correct matchup.

    [QUOTE]I'm sorry, but the Bruins, as great as some of their teams have been since their last Cup have never went the extra mile or should I say dollar to put together a team that can truly win a Cup.  We see it now, with the contemplation of trading Kessel or dumping Savard.  The Bruins had a great core group of players this year that ran into the "playoff experience factor."  Next year, with a few inspiring additions would be right there with Pittsburg and Detroit.  But, you can be assured that that will not happen.  I truly believe that the Bruins will never win a Cup as long as they have the Jacobs as owners.  If Bobby Orr had gotten the team as he tried before, or if Robert Kraft owned this team, you can be things would be different because it surely does start at the top.  Maybe Shero went to the team with the most talent, but most people in the NHL know about the Bruin's Scrooge tactics.  Why oh why won't these guys just sell this storied franchise and buy the Sabres, their home team anyway?

    Re: BRUINS SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN SHERO AS GM

    Shero was part of a Stanley Cup winner for one specific reason....he had the healthiest team. That and Crosby decided he was going to play the best he has ever played down the stretch, absolutely carrying the penguins, the guy was ridiculous against Washington, he won every single puck battle. Shero should go down as a terrible GM in pittsburgh. The trade for Hossa was a complete disaster. He gave up the chance of a dynasty for a one year shot at the cup, that didn't happen and he got UNBELIEVABLY lucky to get one this year. PC is 10 times the GM that Shero is, he understands balance and depth, not just big contracts to top two draft picks. Don't worry guys, this will be proven in the next 10 years or so by the success of Bruins 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th round draft picks.

    Re: BRUINS SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN SHERO AS GM

    Chowdah, as the veteran fan you are, you know that what the Bruins are going through is all part of a process.  EVERY re-building NHL club goes through it.  B's have finished three years of re-building under Chiarelli.  (It took Pittsburgh 8-9 years to win a Cup after they hit rock bottom, so what we're seeing here in Boston is nothing unusual.)  RARELY do teams go from barely making the playoffs (2008 B's, 8th seed) one season to going to the Finals the next.  Certain steps are always taken.  

    At some point(s) along the way toward winning their next Cup, the B's...as has been true with most re-building clubs over the past 40 years...will lose in the playoffs when they were supposed to win and vice versa. 

    To my mind, the Bruins got a couple of those steps out of their way this past season.  They had a helluva regular season, one that exceeded everyone's expectations.  But just in case they were feeling a little too good about that season, Carolina snuck up to bite 'em in the playoffs, when the B's really should have won.  This is the "unfinished business" Chiarelli's referred to numerous times since the playoffs ended.  This unfinished business is what will drive the Bruins to do even better next year and during the playoffs.  The won't forget how they felt after they wasted the Carolina series this season...and even if they try to, Chiarelli, Julien, Cam and Sweeney won't let 'em.


    B's have shown a steady upward progression under Chiarelli.  No one wins the Cup overnight, it always takes time and patience.  Chill, relax and enjoy, the B's are on their way.

    Do you really believe this propoganda Bruinscountry? Or does Jacobs & Co. just have you this beaten down and disillusioned?

    1) This "rebuilding process" is entering its 18th year with ZERO progress being made where it counts in the playoffs during that time.

    "It took Pittsburgh 8-9 years to win a Cup after they hit rock bottom"

    Wrong again BruinsCountry, it looks like your Delaware North cue cards are a little off. PITTSBURGH was dead last in the Eastern Conference in 2005-06 with 58 points. IT TOOK 3 YEARS for them to win the Cup and they made the Cup Finals twice in that time.

    "RARELY do teams go from barely making the playoffs (2008 B's, 8th seed) one season to going to the Finals the next.  Certain steps are always taken."

    Correct, who is talking about going to the Finals, how about not failing in the playoffs for once. "Steps" like actually winning on home ice when your a #1 seed.  

    "The Bruins will lose in the playoffs when they were supposed to win and vice versa."

    Really? When do the Bruins EVER win when they are supposed to lose? The Bruins lose if they are the #8 seed, #4 seed, or #1 seed. It does not matter with this organization they will dissapoint no matter where they are in the standings. 

    "No one wins the Cup overnight, it always takes time and patience.  Chill, relax and enjoy, the B's are on their way."

    Right BruinsCountry... do you have this cute line in T shirt form? This has been Jacobs company line since he took over this regime in 1975 and fans like you keep singing it for him. What will the excuse be next year?

    Re: BRUINS SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN SHERO AS GM

    Is anybody else tired of Chowdakid and the garbage he considers knowledge.
    While it wasn't 8 or 9 years for the Penguins it's been 7 since they were at the bottom of the league. They began their losing streak in 2001-2002, getting the #5 overall pick in the 2002 draft (who became Ryan Whitney, since traded to the ducks for Chris Kunitz and prospect Eric Tangradi). The following 4 drafts they had a top 3 pick in each year (the third pick in the 2003 draft, traded up to select Marc-Andre Fleury) (the 2nd overall pick in 2004, which they used to select Malkin) (the 2005 draft, the year affected by the lockout, was chosen by a draft lottery based on the previous 3 years records by each team. Pittsburgh won the lottery and chose Crosby) (the first year after the lockout the Penguins finished with the 2nd worst record, choosing Jordan Staal.)
    Interesting to know you've only been a fan since the return from the lockout Chowdakid.
    And you're obviously not a true fan, because being one requires some insight into the team, and some faith.
    And all I've heard from you on this message board is hate everything Bruin and don't have faith.

    ECHL you would choose a lower class league for your name, sounds kinda fitting. What I don't like are idiots like Chowdakid and yourself who don't know a single thing about hockey come into forums and dump on a team that's made incredible strides the past few years. Name me a team that's won the stanley cup in the past 15 years that wasn't a powerhouse or that didn't need a rebuilding period before being good enough to win. The fact that Chiarelli took this team from the ashes and rose them to within 1 goal of the conference finals within 4 years is remarkable, the reason why he was voted the best GM in the league by his peers. But of course ECHL and Chowdakid know more than professionals, so maybe everybody should listen to them from now on. Retards

    What I hate is a bunch of fairweather bandwagon fans that see a trend of Boston teams winning titles and expect the Bruins to follow suit. Hockey's the one sport where you can't turn a franchise around in one season, but if you haters knew anything about the sport you would know that by now.

    Re: BRUINS SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN SHERO AS GM

    Chowdah, First of all, cut the krap.  You've made it too obvious you don't like real facts and evidence to get in the way of your feelings.  I see right through your attempts to distort.  Pittsburgh had high #1 draft picks going back to 2002 because of finishing out of the playoffs for 5 consecutive seasons beginning in 2002, yet it still took them 7 seaons (and 8 years) before they were good enough to win the Cup in 2009.  And yet despite all those years of high #1 picks, you're somehow trying to claim that Pittsburgh's re-building process didn't actually begin until after the Pens finished last in 2006?  All those high #1's drafted in 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006 had nothing to do with Pittsburgh's success in finally turning things around in 2007?  That's nothing but fresh manure Choawdah, the purest of bovine waste product.

    As Perry Mason might have said, Isn't it true that your transparently lame attempt to distort the facts...and in so doing denigrate the progress the B's have made in 3 three seasons under Chiarelli...has more to do with your continuing need to believe that the B's can't and won't win the Cup as long as Jacobs still owns the team than anything else?  True, but sad too.  You may not be well Chowdah. 

    Second, you're waaay too hung up making yourself miserable because of something you can't possibly change:  Jacobs' continued ownership of the B's.  To hell with Jacobs.  Why would you permit a schmuk (sp - the Globe censor gremlins eveidently don't know Yiddish) like him to affect your obvious interest in the Bruins?  I guess that means you won't be able to bring yourself to enjoy the Cup the B's are going to win in the next 2-4 seasons.  That's also sad. 

    Third, my opinions are mine and mine only.  While I too would like to see new owners, I don't give a damn about Jacobs.  The Bruins will always be OUR team, MY team.  Sheep you say?  Not at all.  I just refuse to allow Jacobs or any owner to ruin the pleasure I get from following the Bruins since 1964.  People in my family saw Eddie Shore play, I saw Orr countless times...and I'm going to let a guy like Jacobs stand in the way of me being a Bruins fan?  No way.

    Fourth, THE ONLY re-building program that counts is Chiarelli's.  Your 18 years of frustration are irrelevant to the good work Chiarelli has done here since 2006.  The progress the B's have made the past 3 seasons will lead to a Stanley Cup parade in Boston within 2-4 years.  Will you be there Chowdah?  For your sake, I hope so.

    wat , they have been revuilding for the past 16 yrs. and if u cannot see that chiarelli has no vision,, no plan and ur as blidsighted as sav was on cooke's hit.

    wake up bud, there are players here overly signed, there's not much about getting excioted about, they gaave away the best offensive player last year and who is dioing quite well the way i felt he would with a garbage team.

    either u cannot see this or ur lying to urself.i terll u wat they should have kept gorton ,

    chiare;;i has no clue what he's doing and u know why he holds on to that number 1 pick because that will make him or break him.
    pc is slowly heading to a respirator and the miracle he needs is from the draft,
