I am satisfied with being one point out of first in the conference with two games in hand. Why aren't you?
Because being one point out of first place has nothing to do with winning the stanley cup. The goals have changed for the Bruins. It's not just OK to win the adams division, or beat Montreal in a playoff round anymore. It's about Lord Stanley. The GM's of the Pens and the Devils, two teams at the top of the conference with the Bruins aren't "satisfied", they are analyzing their strengths and weaknesses and making moves in this shortened season. I think it is pretty clear that Chris Bourque is not the answer for the 3rd line, and neither is Jay Pandolfo (good depth signing). Whether you like Ponikarovsky in that role is another story, but I hope that PC gets in the ballgame soon. Injuries are going to happen, and I don't like the depth that I see. Go out and get some help now, when your squad is healthy and you don't need to make a deal and another GM can hold you over a barrel. Have I been entertained by the Bruins this year, you bet. Am I happy with their start, I sure am. They are showing that they know how to win. But that doesn't mean that I don't want to see them improve this roster.
