    Valentine has only made problems on this team worse. I can't believe they are going to finish the season with him. The team will continue to sink and flounder and after a bitter Winter things could po more »

    Hall is the real deal but he can't stay healthy because of his pedal/metal type game. This will likely wear on him as more seasons go by. It's not that the Bruins made the right choice but rather EDM more »

    Performance-wise Rolston = Kaberle: washed up and coming into a hot playoff race from a team dead in the water. At least he didn't cost a 1st rounder and if injuries occur in the playoffs we'll have a more »

    Vs NJ. Zanon looked good, Corvo and Rolston just awful. Better keep Krejci, Seguin and Lucic together for a while. B's need a RW, hope Horton/Peverly are back soon or it's a big hole. more »

    Peverly did make the Bruins a much faster team with his speed. Wheeler was all size. Peverly just plain can't shoot, that's his problem. He misses 7 of 10 shots. If he was more accurate his numbers wo more »

    I was too young back in the days of Orr?Espo but things are so hot here right now even the talk show hosts on the radio who hate hockey (read: Denis and Callahan) are faking like they're fans because more »

    Posted 12/05/2011 03:29:35 EST

    Yeah, I guess it makes sense. If they had a big lead in the standings then a rest might work but they are just barely ahead of the competition so I guess they can't spare it. I just hate to see them h more »

    With the ridiculous schedule coming up the next week or so I'm thinking the B's should use that as an opportunity to rest a player here or there and give Kampfer, Hamill et. al. some work. They will n more »

    Last year Kaberle's poor play was supposedly because he was playing for the Leafs and then he went to the Cup champ Bruins and still stunk. After that, I didn't think PC would ever be able to dump him more »

    In Response to Re: NHL Officiating: I don't hate NHL officiating. A lot of times I go "what the heck was that??!" only to see the official was right. There are some terrible calls all the same (see la more »

    The officiating last night vs Buffalo was bad but I think baseball has the worst, by far. Overall, I think the NHL is doing much better at trying to improve officiating. I think hockey is the hardest more »

    Sabres were fools going to the press with their complaints. They put themselves in a position where they were now obliged to win the fights and the game too. Ruff was stupid for suggesting "open seaso more »

    Can anyone think of someone better? I go back as far as Cheevers and TT is much better. Moog and Peeters don't hold up  IMO either.

    When they made the trade for him Chiarelli referred to him as a "two-way" player. I griped big time because he was not very good offensively and, at the time they needed some O badly. But since the pl more »

  • Posted 11/01/2011 08:36:49 EDT

    The players have to focus back on what makes them win: solid defense to back up their world-class goaltending. They won't win by trying to be more offensive; they don't have that kind of talent. The o more »

    The Cup wasn't a fluke, it was won on incredible goaltending, look at the numbers. This team had scoring problems last season that they did not address and now with Ryder and Recchi gone and only Poul more »

    At the trade deadline there usually is not much available and all is badly overpriced. I doubt Chia is saving it for that. What evidence is there of that anyway? Now that he has some room maybe he can more »

    At WEEI they got rid of their only hockey fans, Dale Arnold and Pete Shephard(sp) and now they are trying to talk hockey with a bunch of basketball guys. Dimwits! like hockey fans wouldn't be able to more »

    I think most fans had doubts at some point during the season. I was not sold on the Kaberle trade or Chris Kelly until well into the playoffs. I became a big Thomas fan years ago when he played his fi more »

    He was not in Vancouver last night? Is he in no condition to travel? Did he have a setback? I could have sworn i saw him in Boston recently. Nobody on TV last night even mentioned how Boston won it al more »

  • Posted 06/16/2011 06:46:51 EDT

    He could have easily won the Smythe if not Timmy. He was Boston's two-way forward who won all the important face-offs and scored two last night. Thomas might have overshadowed him a little. He came ba more »

    I'vI said last October that he was the best in the world and was blasted for it.  Brickley said his may have been the best playoff performance in Cup hstory. AFAIC, he has nothing more to prove, ever. more »
