LOL.... The passive kool aid crowd never ceases to amaze me and give me a good laugh or two.

Kind of an ironic name, no?
I used to be a huge Bruins fan, then the lockout happened...then they got rid of Samsonov and Thornton...then after proclaiming they were in SUCH good position to be ahead of everyone else when coming back...and they were terrible.
Then Savard got ran by Cooke and I suddenly cared again. Then the Bs didn't respond, and I was livid. Instantaneously reminded why I walked away.
Then the playoffs started...and what a run it was. Sure, it's embarrassing to be up 3-0 in the series, then 3-0 in game 7...and lose it all. But what I saw was a team of very young, very talented players with the #2 overall pick in this draft and an as-close-as-you-can-get guarantee with that pick. Krejci, Rask, Lucic, Bergeron, Boychuck...there is a lot of reason to like this team.
It hurt to lose Sturm and Krejci BAD. Sturm could've been overcome, but in losing Krejci, they lost a playmaker, and one of the biggest hearts on this team, and that was too much. In retrospect, it was flatly idiotic for the front office to add NOTHING at the deadline. They could have, they CHOSE not to, and it cost them dearly. They wouldn't have had to come close to giving up the #2 pick. But, oh well.
I'll be looking forward to next season...the first time in 8 years for this fan. I still think ownership stinks...but I saw enough of the players to let myself be setup for an epic fall...I'm ok with that. They'll be back next year, and there is reason to believe they will be much better next time around. A little older. A little wiser. A little more talent. And, hopefully, a little healthier.
Hey, if they could bring me back, a HUGE cynic at times, they must have done something right. Believe in these players, this could be a special group. I'll proudly be bringing my spoked B out of retirement.
