In Response to Re: Jeremy Jacobs Quote
I agree with CountyCork partially, yes money is LESS of an issue with Jacobs because of the cap but dont lazily say it is not an issue because it most defintely still exists. A couple obvious examples is the GM's salary (lowest in the league) the practice facility in Wilmington widley reguarded as the worse in the league ironically enough a deal was in place two weeks ago to finally get a state of the art building for the Bruins to practice and train in and it fell apart because Jacobs did not want to pony up the cash. I kid you not. Now the money issue for the most part in the cap era has to replaced with ownership and management savvy and ingenuity (see Detroit RedWings) I find it very disturbing that in December Jeremy Jacobs was quoted that he wanted to lock up Peter Chiarelli LONG TERM...? Why Jeremy? Midway through PC's third year he had yet to win a playoff series, on his second coach, numerous screwups with big contracts... THE REASON: The building was being sold out, season tickets were flying off the shelf, the new jerseys were being bought in a frenzy and Jacobs equated that with success, and he wanted to lock up Chiarelli because of his profits and not being a REAL Cup contender and PC proving himself come playoff time. This was why Sinden and O'Connell were here so long is because the profits were always rolling in. COMPLACENCY is the reason why I dont think this organization will win the Cup with Jacobs as owner. The slightest bit of success and Jacobs is more then satisfied and everything remains status quo.

ya, really, what has chiarelli done! boston only won the east and almost the entire league in points only missing by one, that blows!, we should have won by 30 or 40 points! we didnt have anyone win the hart trophy, all we could conjure up were the jack adams, norris, vezina and jennings, that freakin blows!
seriously, i thought the lewis signing was brutal before he ever got into a game. even after the year was done, the tsn guys were saying NOT to fire lewis and that they need some consistancy in boston, chia did right by firing him and getting the right guy in julien. he has made his mistakes, but he has also done great.
i think jacobs is a moron and only cares about profits, i think its quite obvious, but im so done with a new thread coming out about it every week. its so old. if you hate the bruins so much why waste your time bashing them, i wouldnt even read up on them if they aggravated me that bad.
lets talk about positives and stop the annoying jacobs banter, its been going on over 30 years now and you guys say everyone are sheep, but isnt that what all hockey fans are?
