Logistics at Root of Bruins Power Play Woes

15th
Oct. × ’11

A bit ago as the Bruins power play was lurching into the record books on their way to the Stanley Cup I mentioned how some of the problems of the powerplay were the mechanics, which are a tactical problem. In the off season after free agency was seven days settled into the hockey world and […]

More Answers than Questions: Bruins Training Camp

15th
Sep. × ’11

For the first time in decades there are very few questions to be answered in terms of personnel on and off the ice. We have two time Vezina Trophy winner, and Conn Smyth holder Tim Thomas returning in goal with the well regarded Tuukka Rask backing him up. The defense is nearly as well stocked […]

Win, Lose or Huh? The Offseason So Far pt 2

8th
Jul. × ’11

The Boston Bruins have the very unique opportunity to stay largely intact after a Stanley Cup Win, and potentially repeat. This hasn’t been done in years. Given that they finished their historic run just days before the NHL Entry Draft no one should be shocked they made no moves during the pause for breath between […]

Chiarelli And Bruins Reach For the Shallow End of the Poul

1st
Jul. × ’11

It would appear that Peter Chiarelli seems to enjoy yanking the rug out from the feet of his Northeast Division rivals. Over the past few years the Boston Bruins have signed from or traded from a lot of  so players. Michael Ryder just departed for the Dallas Stars, he was a Canadien. Marc Savard I’m […]

Four-(No)-Play the Case For and Against

7th
Jun. × ’11

Earlier today Aaron Rome of the Vancouver Canucks was suspended for four games. I’ll save the behavior of Henrik Sedin and Alain Vigneault for another post since that could easily spiral into pages. As a fan who’s team has been on both sides of suspension rulings I’m heartily ambiguous about this suspension. When Marc Savard […]

Boston Bruins NHL Draft Wishlist

31st
May. × ’11

I’m hardly discounting the rest of the season, but with the draft combine here and now, I can’t go another day without posting something. At forward for the Bruins only Recchi and Ryder are unsigned unrestricted free agents.  Brad Marchand is an RFA, and as this is his entry contract and he’s played just one […]

Relocation Atlanta, Winnipeg, the real reason

19th
May. × ’11

If the Thrashers move to Winnipeg, itself a ‘failed’ NHL market becomes a reality, it will be for much the same reason. Not because of a failure to draft well, not because some inviolabe law of the universe prevents winning in that location. It won’t even be because no one cared. Hell, we can all […]

Game 3 wrap Bruins – Lightning

19th
May. × ’11

Bergeron was in and on. Tim Thomas was much more focused and contained than he has been in the first two games of the series. The defense remembered their job title. With these three things the Bruins win was almost a given. Bergeron was just a dominant force wherever he was on the ice. Faceoff […]
