Mar. × ’10

As the regular season winds down, I’m going to do a series on sev eral players, and Bruins situations that have held up, marked the danger points, or just plain made fans scratch their heads. Tonight however is a post on some teams that have done those things across the NHL. Pillars: Before the NHL […]

Who’s Cookeing

18th
Mar. × ’10

So if I were Matt Cooke, I’d have my head on a swivel and my name on a will tonight. Because the list of guys who will express their displeasure with him would be worrisome to anyone who spent a few minutes on Youtube or over at HockeyFights.com. Zdeno Chara is a 6’9 250+ skating […]

Bruins Vs Islanders

6th
Mar. × ’10

The Bruins entered the game looking to integrate Dennis Seidenberg into their defense in his second game since the trade. He performed with a quiet efficiency that is very different from the quiet efficiency that Morris displayed. They are different players and do things with distinct flair. Michael Ryder’s hit on Blake Comeau was unfortunate, […]

Thomas

4th
Mar. × ’10

This injury to Rask may prove the best thing to happen to the Bruins in a while. Tim Thomas is now in a battle to regain the confidence of the team in front of him. His numbers have certainly fallen off from last year, but the defense in front of him hasn’t been quite as […]

Deadline day moves & motives pt 1

3rd
Mar. × ’10

The Bruins moves probably have most scratching their heads. The defense hasn’t really been a problem this year or last. That said, the Bruins haven’t drafted much in the way of defensemen in the last two or three drafts. And today and yesterday addressed some of that lack of depth by picking up three prospects […]

A trade that won’t be made…

3rd
Mar. × ’10

I’m a firm believer that some players are only as good as their ability to tolerate the market they are in, and the support they are getting from the bodies around them. That said, an interesting trade that might spark the reemergence of two talented 30 goal scorers would be between Boston and St Louis. […]

Bruins – Canadiens post game

2nd
Mar. × ’10

Wow, two and a half reasonable to good periods followed by ten minutes of beer league play. The final ten minutes held not one twentieth of the quality of play of the first fifty minutes. Ference who I generally defend looked particularly out of place. He cleanly lost his man twice. Hunwick who seems only […]

Bruins & Habs 2nd Intermission

2nd
Mar. × ’10

As pointed out earlier, the Bruins moves today are useful for next season since it will provide a bit more depth on the blueline. It also clears a superfluous forward from the organization. The Habs started the period on a carryover power play and did little with it. Over all the Bruins played better in […]
