30th
Nov. × ’10

We are quarter of the way through the season, and it’s time to set your Calder watch. Synchronize now. Some surprises in the top five goal scorers: Logan Coture of the San Jose Sharks just barely squeaks into the rookie count and leads all rookies with 8 goals. Jeff Skinner of the Carolina Hurricanes is […]

The Boston Bruin’s defense is second only to the Montreal Canadien’s in goals allowed. Andrew Ference: B, has been paired with Zdeno Chara most of the season. Has looked good their so far, and is in fact a +12 despite only having two assists on the season.  The current +/- is roughly twice the highest […]

We hardly knew you: Matt Hunwick

29th
Nov. × ’10

Matt Hunwick, we hardly knew you, and now you’re an Avalanche. Matt, Good luck, I always liked your heart. Even on the nights when your head was elsewhere you laid your body on the line.  You had your spleen removed while you were here, you nearly had your eye gouged out by Mike Komisarek, and […]

Cap Crunch 3

28th
Nov. × ’10

For various reasons the players in this post are highly unlikely to be traded. Some would induce a rant from the average Boston Bruins fan that’d make a Mel Gibson diatribe look as meek and melodic as the local choirs rendition of Silent Night. Mark Stuart. As one of his biggest fans I’d be displeased […]

Cap Crunch Part 2

24th
Nov. × ’10

With the guys who might not even move if hell freezes over taken care of, it’s time to tackle the players the Bruins might get some value from trading. While it’s unlikely all of them, or even most will be traded, and the thought of losing some of them is nearly as scary as Brittany […]

Hold Up, Wait a Minute!

24th
Nov. × ’10

While in the middle of reviewing the Bruins cap crunch, I took a minute or four off to look at the All-Star Vote totals. Sure, the school yard format threatens to make a game that’s as real as Pam Anderson’s chest even worse, but that’s not the point. The point is there are players in […]

Cap Crunch Part 1

24th
Nov. × ’10

It’s as big a secret as Perez Hilton’s sexuality that the Boston Bruins are in a bad cap place… leads the NHL in Sv%, GAA, and SO. ….However, there are certain chowderheads in the local media who don’t buy Chara as a number one defenseman,…

Maybe, Sometime: Or why I Don’t miss Wideman

18th
Nov. × ’10

I had an on going argument over the value of Dennis Wideman to the Boston Bruins for nearly his entire tenure. One of us was of the opinion that his the offense and ability to dig the puck out of the defensive zone more than compensated for my opinion that he was a misplaced winger […]
