    Respect? None! From Boston Media?

    Okay, Okay, enough with the Pens are gonna win tonight. The Bruins just beat them by an aggregate 9-1 on THEIR home ice. It's the fact that the Bruins match up extremely favorable to Pittsburgh. They completely disrupt their flow offensively  as well as exploit their deficiencies on defense. As a TEAM. That cannot be undone or re-taught in one day. If it had been the Pens up 2-0 they would give the Bs no chance. But for Pitt, it's pride etc etc. Pride doesn't get you past the Bs forechecking.  It doesn't get you back to your defensive responsibilities. It certainly doesn't turn your goalie into Patrick Roy. Enough. The Bs beat the Leafs the way they did because they started playing like they are now with 10 mins to go.  Pitt may win, but it won't be because of pride and reputation. It will be because the Bs messed up. That's the only way. These Boston reporters, man, they need to open their eyes.

    I kinda like it.  This team seems to thrive on the fuel of doubters.  If everyone says "they're better than the Penguins!" I start to worry.

    The Penguins are the favorites, the Penguins have better players, and more scoring, and Art Ross winners, and so on and so forth...

    The Bruins are just trying to play with 'em and take their best shot.  Let's see how it works out.

    Let the media say what they want. The problem it is a waste of time pointing it out because the media will say its not true and say they were taken out of sort. I agree with the Fletch

    Pierre McGuire and Barry Melrose have jumped on the B's bandwagon.  Both have said the Bruins are awesome.

    Felger, Mass and Haggerty certainly know just about everything about Boston sports.

    What's with this victim mentality?  Disrespect blah blah blah.  Tons of people expected (and still expect) the Penguins to win.  The media is more focused on the Penguins because that's how the media works.  National stories aren't about Krejci.  They are about Crosby.  That's how it goes.

    As for the home guys disrespecting the B's, well, look at posts by fools like SoxinIL for what disrespct sounds like.  I don't think Felger, Mazz or Haggerty has said that the B's are gutless or choke artists.

    In reality & I've been guilty of it myself. It is a form of whining to be complaining about sports media not giving your team any respect. If Boston continues to win & play they way they have been they'll earn it.

    There's a marketing reason here too folks... wouldn't be good business if every series was a sweep. Gotta keep the folks interested (and paying.)

    Well I'm not whining. They are reporters. They should be held accountable for not knowing the subject they are covering. I don't want homers. I was scared of the Pens before the series. But what I've seen would give me no reason the believe the Pens have any chance at all minus a colossal screwup baby the Bs. That's the analysis. And it's not wrong.

    Actually, it was recently.

    I do like Felger however. I am probably one of the few on this board that does. He may not be the most knowledgable, but he is dedicated to talking hockey on the air. That is something I respect.

    Enough.  There isn't a reason even to use that phrase to describe this team recently.  They went down and came all the way back against the Leafs.  They dismantled the Rangers.  They're up 2-0 against Pittsburgh.  In what context would anyone who isn't a total deeeebag from Illinois refer to this team as chokers?

    I believe he used the term after game 4 of the Rangers series. If I remember correctly, he said that the B's have a history of choking series away and pointed to the Toronto series and Philadelphia series as examples. He was saying that he wasn't as confident in the B's chances to wrap up the series in game 5 as others were after the way the B's played in game 4.

    That's a lot different.  They did fail vs. Philly and almost got jettisoned by Toronto.  Lots of people weren't confident the B's would win Game 5.

    Felger predicted a Game 7 vs. Rangers after the B's lost Game 4 to make it a 3-1 series

    It's not different. He explicitly called the Bruins chokers while making those comments. He was inferring it was almost gauranteed that the series would go beyond game 5 due to their nature as being 'chokers'.
