    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.

    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 »

    Posted 05/28/2011 06:31:35 EDT

    WEEIdiots showed their colors when the Bruins beat the hated Habs in game 7 and all they could talk about afterwards was jack Edwards' post-game comments. They hate hockey so much they couldn't bring more »

    I was hoping I was wrong about Kaberle but unfortunately not. What a waste of a draft pick. Chiarelli stinks. Bring back Jeff Gorton! more »

    Posted 04/17/2011 09:10:01 EDT

    Instead of blaming the players lke we always do, how about blaming the management for overvaluing them? The Krejci line is not a number 1 line. Kaberle is not a difference maker ad does nothing for th more »

  • Comment on: 'Bergeron’

    Posted 03/13/2011 08:11:44 EDT

    This is a telling quote about not just Bergeron but the whole team's lack of offense and consistency: "Kelly, a defensive center, saw 1:44 of power-play time. In Ottawa, Kelly averaged only 10 seconds more »

    Good point Maz. Management is always asking the players to step up but now management needs to do the same. more »

  • Comment on: 'Healthy Seguin is asked to take a seat'

    Posted 02/10/2011 07:24:07 EST

    Seguin still watches far too much rather than participate. It's obviously been a huge leap from Juniors and he still needs lots of adjustment. Not a terrible move by the Bruins. he'll be back soon eno more »

  • Comment on: Without%20Savard%2C%20Seguin%20should%20be%20pivotal

    Posted 02/10/2011 07:10:46 EST

    I think Seguin should not be living alone in his own place. He's taking on too much. He shouldn't be learning to cook and do his own laundry as well as how to become an NHL star all at the same time. more »

    I wish the Bruins would hire him as an assistant coach. They still miss his influence. more »

    Posted 01/12/2011 12:19:52 EST

    Bergeron, Wheeler and Seguin. I skipped Thomas because although he was his stellar self he was not the main factor in the game. Wheeler was everywhere and Seguin had one of his best games as a Bruin s more »

    Posted 01/11/2011 12:23:37 EST

    I can't believe Fleury is not in there; he was amazing. Chara is #1 start for me. Not only did he score the first goal but he led the team into a higher gear which led to the comeback. more »

  • Comment on: 'Bruins are trying to put the pieces together'

    Posted 12/01/2010 09:28:24 EST

    With Wideman and Hunwick gone off the blueline that really changes the look of the breakout. It's so much easier to forecheck a one-dimensional defense. Next move the B's make will absolutely have to more »

    Posted 10/22/2010 07:40:10 EDT

    Something is different indeed. If this was the Bruins of seasons past the effort on opening night vs the Caps after a long trip would have been disappointing. They have more confidence now and the spe more »

    If Savard stays they would likely send Ryder to Providence, at least that's what I'm hearing. I think the team is not as high on him anymore anyway. Personally, if he becomes a UFA I think it might no more »

    Nice reading between the lines Chris Gaspar. My wild guess is Savard to EDM. They need a C badly for Hall. more »

    Posted 04/16/2010 01:26:59 EDT

    Dupes is right on target. Chara and Boychuck ripped off some good shots and players had time to plant in front but the wingers atayed wide and Miller saw it all the way. This is too soft a team. Sturm more »

    Posted 04/03/2010 06:34:01 EDT

    After reading this story I'm now convinced that Chiarelli will offer him a contact extention for more money and a NTC to boot. (Who would want him anyway?) more »

    Nice article Chris!! That is the root of the problem. Funny thing about the Caps game: If the B's knew how to score goals they probably could have beaten WSH. They had enough chances; they just don't more »

    Posted 11/20/2009 06:37:14 EST

    Correction: Chiarelli did not draft Lucic. lucic was highly prized and drafted by Jeff Gorton even before he made a name for himself in the Memorial Cup. that's why the Bruins stole him. The only thin more »

    Posted 11/19/2009 07:59:31 EST

    He thinks they'll be fine when Lucic and Savard return? Neither of them are goal scorers and if anything, their absence has betrayed a gross lack of depth that will bubble up again during the next rou more »
