In response to red75's comment:
I can't believe how much complaining I'm seeing on this board about the depth roster fill ins, especially regarding a 9-2-2 team. Pandolpho looked fine for his role, and Bourque despite the lack of point production is a better option than about half of the Jets' starting 12. How is it possible that I see more complaining about roster depth on this board than I do on my Jets' board? Bourque has one point less and a better plus minus than the Peg's first line centre for chrissake. Get some perspective.
I was just thinking the same thing. Every single discussion eventually disintegrates into name calling and hardheadedness. Used to be we could have a healthy debate and move on...but now it's just reading a bunch of grown adults yelling at nobody.
I can understand why folks aren't happy with the depth on this team. We watched the Bs struggle mightily last year, then bust out as by far the most dominant team in the league for a long stretch, only to fizzle in the playoffs due to, among other things, a lack of PP scoring and inability to recover from a few injuries. Key injuries, but nonetheless...
Cheering for the Bruins these days has become the same as cheering for the Patriots. It becomes less and less fun to chat because nobody wants to look at what's right in front of them, but instead project out what it takes to win playoff games. Reality is none of the teams right now will be the same come playoff time, so it's a useless discussion.
So in the meantime we all whine and moan that Bourque isn't Morrow, and Chara isn't hitting the crud out of everything that moves like he would in a playoff series. I wouldn't mind it so much if people could just relax, make their point and move on instead of trying to get someone else to think the way they do. This isn't high school debate, it's a discussion forum. People forget the discussion part.
