In Response to Done with this team!
[QUOTE]Like Badhab I was a Bruins fan before they were called the Bruins and were actually called the Mayflower Puritans. They played 'hockeysport' on a bed of gravel instead of ice, as ice hadn't been invented yet, and water was kept in liqued form only. In 1927 I mistakenly had a menage-a-trois with Dit Clapper and his mistress at a back bay brothel, and ever since I have been faithfully bound to this team. However, as wonderful as the mid-90's were, when this team rarely made the playoffs, sent their best players packing, and were led by the likes of Dimitri Kristich, it is now, right now, that I have decided I can no longer follow this team. The two Vezina caliber goalies, the Norris winning defensemen, the three great centers, being in first place, near the top of the entire league, greatest goal differential in the NHL, playoff bound team that has scored 7 goals in a game twice this week and has a young exciting nucleus...just bores me now. How could they lose a 4-2 game to the Sabres with Ryan Miller stealing the game?? Just unnacceptable. It's back to the book club, bridge tournaments, and scrap-booking for me. Now, heavens to betsy! Where is my medication?!?

Awesome post Fletch....It is interesting that I'm assuming most of the fans on this forum are actually too young to have seen the B's win their last Cup. So that means all they have are some of these really good reg. seasons. I said it in another post, but I have NHL Ticket, I watch every B's game and I'm glad I do. They are entertaining, they have some brilliant wins, and some great, great comebacks late, and they are the best 3rd Period team in hockey. I was around for the 2 cups, albeit very young kid, but I said I was done with the team when they choked 3-0, 3-0 leads v. Philly. But I got sucked right back in by Thomas and Marchand and Lucic and Kampfer and Savvy's recent skill comeback. Maybe the B's won't win the cup this year, but I'll be a fool to say they don't at least have some makings of a team to get as far as the semifinals. I'm enjoying the reg. season though, so keep it coming B's
