In Response to Was I so crazy now?
[QUOTE]Saw this coming back in february. When all you so called experts kept saying they will come out of this funk and be fine in the playoffs. Well 15 goals in 7 playoff games on a rookie goalie isnt a winning effort people. They got lucky that Washington was ALLMOST as bad as the Bruins. Washington will get trounced in every direction by Philly if thats the next round for them. Philly can score on a power play!! They get to rest up now and get back at it next year. They need to spend that extra cap space this summer ( would love to see a Parise ) and not wait for the damn trade deadline that doesnt even matter anymore, good GM's are doing thier work in the summer now. Time for Chia to learn that and stop evaluating until every decent player is gone in free agency. The wait for the trade dealine tactic cost them a legit chance to make a run this year, all they did was add old tired legs to a allready tired team.

Congratulations puckhog, you've got the support of the hopelessly deranged Stanley.
Your all jilted that the Bruins didn't win, so you think you probably should take a swing at Bruin fans now to complete your little tantrum eh?
There are many on this sight that felt the Bruins could lose the series, and stated so. In fact, any sensible hockey mind would come to the same conclusion. The fact they didn't "predict it", means nothing. It was a concern for most here, and it turned out to be a viable one. The fact that most don't see the need to come on here and conveniently, after the fact, boast, they "knew" it was going to happen...doesn't take away from either their credibility, or in particular, their maturity.
Your mentor, Stanley feels that he's somehow validated now, for predicting the B's wouldn't make the playoffs. Is that what you aspire to???
First of all, if you saw this coming in February, you were about a month late, but you should be commended on your ability to pinpoint the problem as the team being "tired". Could you please clarify ...was it the physical kind, or the mental...or was it both. Some "independant" experts would consider the "tired' factor to be a bit simplistic, generic, and without much substance. I'd have to agree.
Also like to have your take on Rolston. Thought he did a great job overall as a 3rd/4th liner. Usually tired old legs get tired-er as time goes on. Most feel he found the fountain of youth in late March/April.
And the "good GM's'...yeah, I hope he figures out how to become one of those by just signing some FA, regardless of the price.
Finally, please update us on your predictions regarding Vancouver, Pittsburgh, Chicago, and Detroit. Did you nail those ones too? How about the Ranger game tonight, who's gonna win that and by how much? Obviously you're not the least bit surprised Ottawa has taken this one to game 7.
You da man !
The Bruins lost, and I agree, they didn't perform to expectation. Regardless of how close it was, they didn't do the things they always do when they're successful, therefore, they lost it, more than the Caps won it.
You, and people like you need to learn that those things happen, and when they do, sensible people don't post all hysterical and girlie. They didn't play very well against Montreal in the first round last year, and won despite that, getting better as they playoffs wore on. For all we know the same thing may have hapenned this year, had they got lucky and advanced.
They didn't though, and they're done. Deal with that....and spare us the drama.
