    Is the ongoing "Tour d'Cup" a distraction?

    Yes, but...

    The players and coaches are not pushing it. The PR are likely fielding an enormous number of appearance requests and here's the thing: if you get a chance to show off the Cup at Foxboro against the Jets--the single biggest draw in New England sports--you do it!! 

    This is from a guy who's family watched a lot of Sox, Pats and Celts while growing up and moslty turned their noses at hockey. Sound familiar? If anything I hooked into the B's as a way find my own cool thing to follow and now here I am 30 or so years later...

    I say milk the Cup. Once a generation kind of thing, apparently. Maybe a few kids in the stands in Foxboro will now be curious to check out the B's. Just hopefully they didn't check them out today.

    Before the season started, yes. Now it's time to get to work. No excuse for today's game (the Avs are awful.)

    Their "window" with the Cup is over soon, but even still I don't really think that Horton or whoever is thinking of yesterday at Gillette Stadium when he's about to make a hit.

    I agree and thank God this 100 days window is now over. Send back the Cup to Toronto (Hall of fame... not the Leafs !!).

    I'm convinced it's a distraction that we don't need now. Party is over and put back your "working booths" guys.

    There is an NHL Network segment on Sunday's day with the Cup at Foxboro.  Couldn't be more obvious that this was the reason for their poor play on Monday.

    It was an entire day of coreographed BS.  Their minds couldn't have been farther from the Avalanche.  A police-escorted bus ride, running on to the field like the Patriots entrance, taking off the hockey sweater to reveal the Pats jerseys... It was all WAY too much to be performing mid-season.

    Such an unnecessary publicity stunt here.  Jacobs and Craft have obviously had a few dinner meetings.

    Get your heads out of the gutter boys.  These games mean something.

    I liked all of the appearances, until the season started. I did not like seeing them out there in Foxboro at that time. It was forced and too much. It's over. Time to get back to work. Winning brings people aboard. Appearances are a way to thank them for already having been there.

    the second that the pucked dropped for last weeks opener, the cup should have been wisked away, not to be seen/touched until they earn it again. so yes, i think it is a HUGE distraction. new season...move on. how can they possibly focus on this season, when they are still celebrating what they did last season? turn the page...

    You said it adkbeesfan. The 2011-2012 season has started. If I was a fan of any other NHL team I'd be getting p*ssed off by now.
