In Response to Re: Chiarelli's last stand?
[QUOTE]At least I know what a paragraph is. When you converse with someone off this board, do you just rattle off a few words or do you use sentences and breaks in between each topic with a paragraph? Quite frankly, I could care less who agrees with me or not. It's my opinion. There is nothing cliched about the importance of the GM in the cap era. Nothing. What Theo Epstein does with an easier playing field, Danny Ainge having success or someone like Belichick who understands value and hot allocate funding correctly, drafting, etc, Chiarelli hasn't proven this yet in this town. In other words, we haven't seen the results. According to fans like you, it's a can't miss recipe, right? There, 6 paragraphs, 7 if you count this sentence.

What? Please don't compare leagues. Each has different caps (Baseball non existent) and revenue streams. If you consider the facts, the Boston Bruins have been spending to the limit each year since the advent of the new CBA.
The Delaware North organization has built a garden without public support unlike many other NHL organizations in North America. The Celtics are tenants. So, if Jacobs decides not to send a player like Schaeffer to the minors and do a buy out, he was just being prudent.
The current management team has made choices including the coaching staff to build the Boston Bruins into contenders. Look at the number of teams who have reached the second round of the playoffs in the past 5 years. This year the Bs are legitimate Stanley Cup contenders with the recent trades.
The team still has a number of excellent young players on the Bs and in the pipeline from the AHL, Canadian juniors and US colleges and universities. Up until recently most publications rate their young prospects as tops in the NHL by comparison to other teams.
Many have written to make you understand that your argument is not valid. The Boston Bruins are contenders in a time of parity and no real dynasties. The jury is not out on Chiarelli any more. He has made his mark. The Stanley Cup would be the best of congratulations.
Lastly, writing in a paragraphs keeps the topic under one thought. The topic sentence is the first sentence. The following sentences are supportive sentences. The last sentence if necessary is either a conclusion or it is a transition to the next paragraph. If one was to have a conversation in a public area on these subjects one of two things would happen. One the conversation would not be long for yes people don't usually speak in length on one subject unless at work. Two people will have a long conversation that fully explains their point of view like one would write a well constructed paragraph. So writing in long paragraphs is to make a point. Spaces between sentences only makes the reading easier.
You seem like a good fan. Why do you think many are bothering to spell out their views here?
