The back and forth: Part Two

Jul. × ’10

Blake Wheeler This fight epitomizes Blake Wheelers season as a Bruin. He tried hard, he meant well but the results just weren’t there. Despite seeing his TOI go from a respectable rookie average of 13:41 to a solid 15:47. he scored less, assisted less, and went from rookie sensation to a hairs breadth away from […]

Jul. × ’10

A series dedicated to a retrospective on the last season and a hope for next. Mark Stuart: Despite the Bruins continued failure to stock the jersey of the guy who hits with the force of his uniform number caliber, he’s a fan favorite.

Jul. × ’10

One of the latest rumors of where Marc Savard and Tim Thomas might end up is well Inane. Really. Both guys have no trade clauses, neither wants to leave the hub, and both are nearing the end of their careers. Neither has yet lifted the Cup, nor even played in a Stanley Cup Final series. […]

Stuart back in the fold

Jul. × ’10

Entering last season as the Bruins ironman Mark Stuart was poised for a breakout season. The previous spring he’d been the best defenseman on the ice in the Boston-Carolina series. He’s always brought his desire to win, his focus and his ferocity. Not known as a goal scorer he is shut down defensive force who […]

9pm ET

Jul. × ’10

I won’t be watching LeBron James. Its not just that I don’t watch basketball and haven’t watched two games in the same season since Sir Charles retired. Its not just that my home town is unlikely to land King James. I just don’t care. In hockey people are currently all agog that Ilya Kovulchuk has […]

Step into the light

Jul. × ’10

Bruins Prospect Camp opened today. I expect to get to see some of it in person this week.  For several prospects this is possibly more important than their draft year combine. If they fail to make a favorable impression today they may just find themselves moved so far down the totem pole they could be […]
