What’s Wrong With The Boston Bruins

4th
Feb. × ’12

The Boston Bruins are broken. They may not be as badly off as the Columbus Blue Jackets or The Montreal Canadiens but like those teams they need someone to reach under the hood and switch out a few parts. The Bruins problems come under three main categories. None of the categories is all that deep, […]

Black, Gold and Back

31st
Jan. × ’12

Tonight the Boston Bruins throwdown with the Ottawa Senators. Just days ago Tim Thomas, Tyler Seguin and Zdeno Chara faced Erik Karlsson, Milan Michalek, Jason Spezza and Ottawa Captain Daniel Alfredsson in the All Star game and skills competition. Tonight the goals count for more than bragging rights, the win will either provide separation or […]

Downed By Derelict Defense

15th
Jan. × ’12

A staple of the Boston Bruins, perhaps even more than the “Big Bad Bruins” image, across the last several generations has been the quality of it’s defense. Park, Orr, Bourque and now Chara have anchored the blueline in particular and the franchise at large for far longer than I can remember. The supporting cast has […]

December Stars and Stumbles

2nd
Jan. × ’12

December was all things considered another good month to be a Boston Bruins fan. The way the month ended with a very lucky win against the Coyotes and forty plus minutes of sleeping and most of a period of passable effort for the sedated in a loss to the Stars shouldn’t overshadow the month as […]

Unsigned Hype

7th
Dec. × ’11

The Bruins have half a lot of choices to make between now and July first. They are on a pure rampaged through the league with a roster very little changed from the one that one them the Stanley Cup. Most of the team is fairly young, and it’s hard to argue that any of the […]

Bruins Escape With 2 Points

17th
Nov. × ’11

The Bruins escaped their visit from the Columbus Blue Jackets with two points and that’s about all that can be said for the home team in front of the crease. Tuukka Rask made the most of his appearance and gave the Bruins a chance to…not lose badly. Curtis Sanford as the other end of the […]

Fixing The Bruins: The Nuclear Route

1st
Nov. × ’11

Something has to give. When you go from first to worst without significant changes in on ice personnel, the problem needs to be addressed. Nuking the team or off ice leaders, trades to fill needs, or simply a shakeup it is past time to live up to fan expectations of a creditable title defense. The season after a championship win shouldn’t be a sedate victory lap it should be a tour de force that shows why the team is the top food chain.

Fixing the Bruins: Pride, Promotion and Punishment

31st
Oct. × ’11

The Bruins are in an unusual place in that they have all the cap room they need to make internal tweaks to the roster. It has been ten games, and it’s clear not only are some players doing better than others, but some are trying harder than others. I’ve been to Bruins practices where the […]

Bruins vs Canes 10/18

18th
Oct. × ’11

The Bruins played a great first period putting shots on Ward early and often. Unfortunately Ward looks to be back in the form that helped the Hurricanes win a Stanley Cup a few years ago. The second period was mostly more of the same. Then things got ugly. Chara reacted to two members of the […]
