    Re: UNACCEPTABLE !

    Drives me nuts that some of the posters on here mistake having reasonable expectations for a team, understanding that a season has both its good and its bad, and that there's no benefit to any fan to go batsheet crazy over a loss in the beginning of November, with "drinking the Kool-aid". People freaking out about this team already - try watching the Jets. Now that's painful.

    I will say this though, and it hasn't been mentioned enough here - many of us talk about the Bruins being a playoff team, and I agree. But the playoffs are a different animal starting this year and the road will be more difficult - it's entirely possible, if not likely, that the 1st seed will play the 4th and the 2nd the fifth (Though with how the Pens are playing it will likely be 1st vs 6th and 2nd vs. 5th). My point is even if  the Bruins win their division they will have a harder path through the post season. The Bruins are in a very tough division, and it's already looking like five squads will come out of the Atlantic. It's not impossible that the Bruins could end up 4th in the conference, like last year, and end u[p playing in the Met with noi home ice advantage in at least the first three rounds - and that's with finishing 4th out of 16 teams.

    The Bruins over the past four seasons have been the best Bruins team since I was a little kid, but unreasonable expectations for regular season games, and a Cup or nothing attitude, especially with the new playoff format, are simply unrealistc.

    I get that it's venting, but it sounds ridiculous, and given that I like the current makeup of the roster - I like the kind of intelligent, multi-purpose player this team's identity is built on - I'm going to speak up against people who call out the quality of the players.  I find those comments show a fundamental lack of understanding of JW's main point - they play the way they play for a reason, and it's not a lack of commitment or professionalism or even, I would argue, emotional engagement.  They have system priorities that have proved effective with this group of players.  When the players are slumping as all players do, all you see is the system priorities and those look boring and passive.  When the players are playing with confidence, the Bruins dominate the puck for periods at a time.  Same system, same priorities.  Just better execution.

    Anyone who crosses CJs approach, when one of his star players goes down, will get chastised on BDC and I don't care because it's worth talking about. It's not venting it's a willingness to criticize when you see something that is not right.

    Just like in 2012 when Horton went down, the system goes out of whack because of one cog is gone. Don't worry though a sure cure will be in town the next few days the Stars and Panthers.

    Right on Book. nobody can ever convince me that Lucic, Chara and company are an unemotional and conservative bunch. The frustration for me comes from my opinion that when this team decides to impose their will - I truly don't believe anyone can beat them. It usually comes out when they have no other choice (see leafs), or someone pokes the bear. (see finger biting)

    I'm right on with this viewpoint, i mean the players all say the right things before a big game and then wait till the last second to pull it out way too many times for the skill on this team. I also agree that when this B's team decides to impose their will, they can beat anyone, last years series against the NYR's and the Pens as evidence.

    The B's are 5th place in the Eastern conference today, not bad. Can the play better? Yes. Will they play better? Yes. I would say that the Bruins going by your standards Stan are playing at their MINIMUM standard of guality in their games as opposed to their MAXIMUM. Players are not robots and every player does not come to the rink every day with 7th game asperations on their mind. Thats what a season is all about, ups and downs, highs and lows. Thats what we as fans love about sports and hockey. If the B's went out and steamrolled every team to a championship that would be nice but very unrealistic. I'm sure Stanley there are days where you give only a "mimimum standard of quality" and thats ok because its human, and this from a person who professes to one day be the future G.M of the Bruins. When that happens then you can hold the players all accountable to your lofty standards.

    Re: UNACCEPTABLE !

    Yes it is unacceptable, but there is every reason to believe that this very talented Bruins team will be in the playoffs. I don't agree with those who blow off the regular season for many reasons, primarily being that management intends to present a quality team to those who buy tickets. Might a player show more intensity in the playoffs ? Of course, but in that instance he is increasing his capabilities over that shortened time frame, and would be exhausted by December if he did the same during the regular season. That's why so many work on conditioning that will allow them to last for the entire time, and still have an added push towards the finish line. The sloppiness we have all witnesssed needs correction, and the correctors should be the team leadership starting with Claude and Chia. They should be awakened after the recent happenings.

    See, the thing is, if you buy an iPad and it carps out after six weeks or it's not working the way it's supposed to and some Genius at the bar isn't able to figure out why, the way you put "pressure" on Apple to show them that this is not acceptable is to go buy a Dell or an HP or a Samsung or whatever.  You accept/don't accept with your wallet.  The equivalent for a Bruins fan living in Montreal would be to become a Shabs fan. Except you're not a season ticket holder.  You might go to a couple of games a year and pay through the nose for scalped tickets; you might get freebies through work.  Most of the time, you're watching for a comparably nominal fee on NHL Network or Centre Ice or whatever.  If you choose not to watch - they don't know and they don't much care.  If we all buy one less jersey, they still probably don't notice for years.  You have no way to put pressure on them.  That's why I was laughing about having a group tantrum on Chara's lawn or in the parking lot at Wilmington - that's about the level of influence you have on day to day levels of effort.  That, and buy a ticket (totally counterintuitive if you're trying to show how unacceptable their effort is) so that you can boo.

    You know where you should be looking?  Jersey.  Jersey was a highly successful program based on rabid team defense, two way players and sufficient offense.  They won three Stanley Cups playing that way: All world goalie, Norris Calibre shut down defenseman, strength up the middle.  Cup, Cup, Cup.  And what did the fans in the Garden State do?  They got bored and stopped going to games.  The empty seats were a league wide joke about how awful Exit 16 and its environs must be if fans won't even go out to see a perennial cup contender.  Then Jersey started to loosen up.  They started to rely on smaller, fast, offensively skilled guys instead.  And with the exception of one anomalous Cup finals appearance, they've tanked it ever since.  Point being, you might find that voting with your wallet produces a different result than the one you want.

    It's what NAS said in the end: either you tolerate it and continue to be a Bruins fan, or you walk because that's the closest thing you have to a way to exert pressure and show them that losing 3 of 4 is unacceptable.  Everything else is venting, but you need to choose your terms.  UNLIKEABLE! I buy.  UNACCEPTABLE sounds like you have power over this, which, until they offer you a job, you don't.

    From what I see it's a total lack of focus on the passing game. If they had focus, they would be creating more chances. Focus on the tape to tape passing. If they can't pass how can they do anything else. It's not time to hit the panic button. I think they are playing well. They just lack focus in the puck handling department. They need to clean up that end of the game and then the rest will come.
