30th
Jun. × ’11

With the Boston Bruins having won the Stanley Cup, and Brad Marchand having score as many goals as Jeremy Roenick or Mario Lemeiux in the playoffs. Like Niemi the year before last, he also managed to be a contributor to a Cup winner as a rookie, and in the last year of his contract. In […]

Bad Moves the Bruins Might Make

29th
Jun. × ’11

I think I expressed myself pretty clearly on what to do with SS, or at least what not to do. Some of the other names floating around are nearly as over-hyped. I say nearly because Stamkos is actually highly talented. Some of the other players I don’t see a point to the Boston Bruins chasing […]

Steven Stamkos, the Flyers and the Lightning

29th
Jun. × ’11

There are multiple reports that as of yet unsigned Restricted Free Agent Steven Stamkos is set to be offered a cap maximum  decade or more deal. This would make him the highest paid player in the NHL. It would also leave him a UFA at age 31 to 33. Meaning he’d still be young enough […]

NHL Entry Draft Day 1

25th
Jun. × ’11

Day one was anything but boring. Trades of players. Trades of picks. Off the board picks. Players sliding. Oh what a night.

Dougie Hamilton – Boston Bruins 1st Round Draft Pick

25th
Jun. × ’11

As I had hoped, the Bruins got a defensemen. A pretty damned good one. A good sized one. What’s not to love? He’s about the same size as Adam McQuaid, was ranked 4th overall by Central Scouting, and has a huge shot. He’s not quite perfect, with some holes still in his defensive game, but […]

I expect some drama tonight but these things would be a massive upheaval in NHL life as we know it. 3) A goalie going in the first two rounds of the draft. There has been zero talk of any goalie at all. I can’t see any team being desperate enough to gamble a pick that […]
