About Me: Love the Sox/Bruins/Pats, born in Boston a million years ago, now displaced. Played and coached in a much simpler time. Still get a little too shook up when the B's or Sox lose. Oh, and soccer is not a sport.

    1.  Bruins trade Malcolm Subban for Patrick Sharp.

    2.  Jordan Caron becomes the Bruins Daniel Nava and still doesn't get sent anywhere, to everyone's dismay.
