In Response to I feel real bad for the sheep
[QUOTE]I'm starting to feel bad for these poor souls who get sucked in every single year and think the Bruins have real shot at a Cup. This whole organization is mismanaged! I am a die hard Bruins fan as well but that doesn't mean I am going to fool myself into thinking this team has a shot or that the powers that be know what they are doing. I hold MY TEAM accountable. We are the Cincinnatti Bengals of the NHL like it or not it is really that simple
. This front office is fundamentally flawed as well as the team on the ice and ownership is more then happy if they just qualify for the playoffs. Are the last holdouts finally starting to see that this is a never ending cycle of ineptitude on Causeway St?! Nothing is going to change without changing the overall philosophy of this organization...

Excellent analogy. Love the 40 Minutes avatar. That was exactly what they proved themselves to be last night (and all too often.) There aren't too many organizations that would keep a coach around after he blows a 3-0 playoff lead, making the franchise just one of 4 stinkers in all of pro sports to ever pull it off, but sure enough, the B's did.
I'm also a die-hard Bruins fan. If I could force myself to root for someone else I would, but I sure as h*ll am not going to sit around watching them put these tomato can teams on the ice year after year and pretend they actually have a shot at winning hockey's greatest prize.
If this were Florida, Atlanta, Carolina, Anaheim, etc., it wouldn't be such a big deal...but this is an Original 6 franchise that used to be the pride and glory of all New England, and now they're just a perennial 1st or 2nd round KO. It's disgusting, and I'm disgusted w/myself for letting myself believe they could get it together this year.
Tack another year on to the "without-a-Cup-O-Meter", b/c we can safely say this is now 39
years and counting. They won't get out of round 1 this year if they even qualify at all.
Worst part is, the owner couldn't care less. Wait, that's not the worst part. The worst part is, when that old skeleton finally kicks off the team gets run by his even more clueless tool of a son.
I think Cubs fans are going to see a world championship before Bruins fans ever do.
