    Recchi said 99% of Bruins want to win cup - who is the 1%???????

    source:  http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=283612

    Quote from Recchi

    "The reason I like Boston is 99 per cent of the guys on that team really want to win a Cup and that's the most important thing in that dressing room."

    So who is the 1% guy?  I don't think it was Fernandez he was talking about because  MF is gone anyway.  I think he's sending a message to someone there or an unsigned regular roster player.  From what it seems to me, my guess would be Kessel or Savard. 

    Don't just disagree.  Name the names.

    1% isn't too shabby, in fact, it doesn't add up to even one player.  And you can bet that the 1% guy is or will likely be moved by the start of next season.  But don't worry, that 1% factor will be present here next season, just as it is in every NHL locker room every year.

    Compare where you work to the Bruins:  would 1% be a good number in your company?  Damn right it would.  And nearly unattainable.

    Not buying these explanations.  No how no way.  Companies I've worked for?  How about the teams I've played for?  In my beer league teams we got rid of the guys that had other motives than winning the playoffs.

    And for the 1% not equalling 1 player.  Come on.  Get serious.  Did you really expect him to say 95.6521% of the guys want to win a cup??  (assuming a 23 man roster).  Hockey player math says this equals one guy.

    "It was just how it came out".  No.  This guy is a team leader.  This is a guy who's got his act together, his brain and his arrse are connected.  This is not like 90% of the guys in baseball that say something stupid 90% of the time.

    Huh? Just because he said it doesn't mean it's true... Every other team could say 100% of thier players want to win the Cup then that would mean the Bruins rank #30 in teams who want to win it all. It's just cheap words but for some reason you love to eat them up.

    when you are speaking, in general, and you are talking about percentages few use the term "100 percent." You often hear cliches like "i gave 110 percent out there," and Recchi did something that a lot of guys do, they say "99 percent" which is to mean the entire team. It's a cliche. You want to dissect a simple quote like this, and you become sick. I've heard 99 percent used often on many subjects. It's something we just say because 100 percent is finite, and 99 always allows just a little doubt. That's human nature, people. By the way, anyone who doesn't want to win a stanley cup probably should be like Stephon Marbury of the Celtics, who was insulted by a 1.3 mil minimum offer in the NBA. Apparently the guy, who has a ton of money in the bank, doesn't care about winning a NBA title. He's concerned about his next paycheck. I would be in complete shock if there are guys in the NHL who don't want to win the stanley cup. It's the ultimate in playing sports. You want to be champions, it's what sports is all about. The sacrifices, the road to winning.

    a better thread here also would be...woo hoo!! Recchi is back for another season, and a full one....This guy is a pro's pro. Outstanding career. The type of veteran the B's need in that lockerroom. Bravo to the GM

    But seriously, it's just an expression. I'd say the amount of players who are actually vocal about "wanting to win the cup" would be around 40%, because it seems as if it's a given while you're in the NHL.

    Im going to start my comment by saying this is just sometihng not mentioned on the post yet.. maybe Hindy? He might not have been happy with the fact that jr (hunwick) came up and took his spot towards the end of the season. To play the whole season to be a healthy scratch in the playoffs cant be fun. Now I love the way he plays the game, he's tough as nails and a great 3rd pairing def... Just a thought because everyone else in boston assumes its kessel.

    Its obviously Kessel since he's the one that wants the big coin instead of taking a slight pay-cut and strengthening the over-all team. Nobody else is holding out except him. Its Kessel.

    Kessel wants to stay in Boston...he has made this point many times...he also was very clear that he is not asking for the reported $5mil...if it were up to Kessel he would be signed by now.

    PC is simply waiting for the league to set the market on Kessel...unless Kessel is traded or somebody vastly overpays for him, he will be back on the top line with Savard and Lucic.

    Your $5mil tag would require the offering team to give up a 1st, 2nd, 3rd round pick...plus actually PAYING the contract...not too many teams can spend that cash, let alone justify sacrificing the picks.

    Re: Recchi said 99% of Bruins want to win cup - who is the 1%???????

    OK I changed my mind.

    Now that I read the story I'm curious as to why he said that.

    I suspect it's just because not everyone is all that riled up about the cup. Usually, the older or more mediocre players don't care all that much. I'm sure he didn't mean to say the 1% doesn't want the cup. Only that they're not all that committed.

    Incidentally, 1% is impossble because there aren't 100 players in there and you can't cut a human being in 3 parts to get that estimate, but hey, he's not a mathematician he's a hockey player.

    And no, i'm not going to name names because I don't know what he was thinking.

    Re: Recchi said 99% of Bruins want to win cup - who is the 1%???????

    I don't know why on earth anyone would say "Kessel or Savard" considering Phil Kessel played two months and through the playoffs (and was the highest scorer in said playoffs for the B's) with a torn labrum and rotator cuff that required surgery, and Savard played Game 7 with a knee injury that would have sidelined him during the regular season. Not to mention that he played in the finals LAST year with a broken bone in his back. I mean, my God. If that's not desire, what the hell is?

    Sounds to me like some "fans" just want to dump on a couple of players, for whatever reason.

    Whoa...where did all these mathematicians come from? lol...one percent can't be just one person, you can't split a person up in 3...it must mean 3.5 people haha

    Whether Recchi meant 1 person or a few doesn't matter. But the fact that he didn't say 100% sounds to me like he feels there's at least 1 individual (probaby a few) that don't seem to be as inspired or willing to work to win the cup. I've never met any of these guys, but I find it hard to believe that a player wouldn't want to win the cup. I mean i would think all of these guys have been dreamming of wining one since they were old enough to tie their skates.

    And if it is a player or few, maybe being the veteran leader, he's just trying to send a message like, "Listen, this very well be my last year kids. I think boston has it and you better play your hearts out cause I chose to stay here instead of trying to go to Detroit" haha.

    Or maybe, like with most things in Boston sports, we're all reading a little too much into it and should be focusing on how great next year is going to be having him back. 
    GO B's.

    Thank you.
    You have to wonder about someone who says 99% is just an expression that means "everyone."  In which language?  On what planet?

    Yes.  Recchi is pointing to somebody.
