    The schedule:

    Too many days off in first half, and no injuries.
    Not enough days off the second half, lots of injuries.

    Bruins aren't exactly killing themselves with the effort, which may be a good thing come playoff time. They may have something left in the tank.

    1- Really really bad turnovers from D-man is a start,

    2- Worse PP team in the league for the past 3  years... Looks at the suit in the back of the bench in charge of  special team.. sorry Rolston at the point.. extremely predictable, too slow, too old, not a leader.

    3- Don't blame Obama, here in Canada we like him, then again we have health care less crime, and we don't have shows like : Lady Hogger, and swamp people lol

    4.  Last but not least.. Smile, there's nothin' we can do about this team of underacheivers

    Re: Designated Excuse Thread

    the excuses from Thorny, the only player the Boston media can talk to, are useless. Marty Turco may have been a reasonable idea, but he is not ready, in any way, for this current NHL. Not his fault , he's just too slow and not as alert as necessary. Timmy is overworked. Lay that at Claude's feet for not using Tuuka through January and february. Misplays on goal one, three and five [Timmy's}; goal two was a gift from the shoe-flys in the sky[ fire them or give them new glasses]. Did the first three deflate the Bruins? oh Yeah. Did Claude kick butt and go with three lines in the second? Oh NO. Claude has demonstrated his skill in a defensive style, he is still missing on flexibility and management [ see Terry Francona]

    Re: Designated Excuse Thread

    I don't think it's a question of excuses - more decisions made that aren't working right now.  The biggest category?  The overarching decision to replace the few lost veterans with young guys in the organization.  At some point, you have to make this decision or your young players never get a chance to break through.  Yeah, they brought in Pouliot and Corvo, but I always looked at them as insurance in case Kampfer proved too Hunwick-ish and Caron needed more time.  Caron needed more time.  Curiously, he's been one of the best Bruins in this bad stretch.  If he continues to produce like this when the rest of the team gets its D-first game back in order, then that original decision will have been the right one.  Even with Ryder producing far more in Dallas than he would have in Boston.

    Same reason they were pretty much undefeated for a few months. It's the ebb and flow of hockey. But injuries are a major factor at the moment. They miss the talent, but more importantly the patchwork lineup is not playing the system very well.

    The OP of this thread will claim that he is never coming back to BDC about 5 times during a game thread on the Bruins Blog when Boston goes down a goal- Pathetic!

    The only intangible that worries me, "the malocchia." Do you know what I mean?.

    1) Injuries
    2) Not scoring first
    3) TT is tired
    4) Being hesitant playing the physical style due to refs and Shanny's scrutiny.
    5) Being on the road
    and most importantly
    6) Me not being at the garden for a while getting the crowd going, stupid Christmas requests

    Hard to believe a guy that looks like him would make fun of anyone.

    so this is the complaint box eh? just one... jacobs is greedy, pc is stupid, clodes an idiot, the team's lazy, the goalies are no good, pp stinks, the system doesn't work, they can't draft young talent, TToo many distractions, not enough done at the trade deadline, but FIRST AND FOREMOST- their fans have lost hope on march 14th? keep the faith b's fans it's NOW when the team needs to know EVERYONE is behind them. NOW is when you cheer the loudest. NOW is when you offer that extra vote of confidence. it's funny, you get to see people's true colors when the crap hits the fan. some lose hope and slink away, others stand up and continue to fight to the bitter end. which are you?

    Re: Designated Excuse Thread

    didn't doubt it for a second dez. this team deserves better from their fans. 9 months ago they accomplished something for the ages, showing some incredible intestinal fortitude. coming back from 0-2 down in 2 series, and winning 3 gm 7's. how quickly we forget! when these guys have their backs against the wall (getting REAL close to that now), they rise to the occasion. i really believe that's the reason for the mediocre play the past month or two(injuries didn't help of course). they weren't playing FOR anything, playoffs looked to be a lock- not so much now. watch the change in their demeanor over the next week, with the sens breathing down their neck. they will heat it up at just the right time. GO BRUINS!!!

    ADK, you just took the thoughts right out of my head. I've said it before that being a Bruins fan is alot like being a Dead Head. The team/music is great but the fans often stink.

    hey kel hows my favorite goalie expert. ive been here just reading but its time to start back up again. trolls are out of control though. at least the ones from the last years run had some ammo with the year before to philly dropping 3-0 lead or 20 years of past playoff performances. these clowns dont even have a leg to stand on. either way im back ,dez brought me out with his return of  "i guess im a sheep who loves kool aid" thread which was right in my wheelhouse.

    the excuses well were does a bruins fan start. the biggest thing and to no-ones surprise is man games without a doubt. i dont know what the number was last year but it wasnt like this no way. one of the experts on here probably have the numbers, along with alot of other factors excluding presidential visits!!!

    Re: Designated Excuse Thread

    Last season after acquiring Kelly, Peverly, the team had a rough patch, were not scoring, were making turnovers, and only had Thomas saving them. I see no reason to panic now and I have every reason to believe the team will bounce back with avengence. The B's rattled off their ridiculous win streak earlier this year right after playing horribly pathetic hockey over the first weeks. Slumps are just that..slumps based on fatigue this time of the season. The Rangers will slump and when they do, it will knock them out of the playoffs early.
