Every off-season, Mikey from Orange and Black Pack and I like to throw potential trades at one another. Last year it was Milan Lucic for Wayne Simmonds which I accepted with open arms. So this year, Mikey threw this out to me:
“Zac Rinaldo is one of those players that you hate playing against, but you love having him on your team.” Zac Rinaldo is a waste of cap space, a roster spot, and carbon. He’s the kind of player that makes you go “OK, Claude. Fine, you can have Gregory Campbell back.” Since entering the league, […]
We thought it was finished. We thought we were in the clear. We were wrong.
Don Sweeney is at it again. After trading for Jimmy Hayes, I was told by some friends in the know with the Panthers that he would get a Reilly Smith type deal but could possible take a hometown discount. While I figured the possibility was there, I didn’t think it would be this significant. Jimmy […]
I am physically exhausted in the Don Sweeney Era of Bruins hockey. It has been such a roller coaster these past few days that I had no idea what to expect when the first day of NHL’s Free Agency wrapped up. At the end of the day, I was Boo from Monster’s Inc running around […]
[UPDATE 3:54 PM]
Oh hey, some not shitty news finally. According to WEEI, SweeNeely and the Bruins have re-signed Ryan Spooner to a two-year deal. No word on the cap hit, but we’re not expecting it to be high. But then again, SweeNeely gave McQuiad $2.75M a year, so who knows anymore. We like Spooner. He’s young, fast and skilled, […]
This is getting to be like beating a dead horse at this point. And for those of you who’ve grown tired of reading doom and gloom stories about Boston’s recent personnel trajectory, please feel free to navigate away from the page now. Sure, there’s some genuine positivity contained within, but you’re still going to have […]
I am not fucking shitting you guys. The Boston Bruins have traded a 2017 third round pick for Zac Rinaldo. You heard me right. The Bruins have traded a legit asset for Zac Rinaldo. Fuck this team. Fuck Don Sweeney. Fuck Cam Neely. I hope they suffocate in a bag of smashed assholes.
When the dust settled and the smoke cleared from a wild and bizarre weekend in Sunrise, Florida it left a lot of Bruins fans lining up at the Zakim Bridge to take the plunge. Now, I’m not really here to talk about the two trades Don Sweeney made. You can argue anything and everything you […]
Oh no! Your team just made a trade and you have to write something about it! What do you do now? We here at Days of Y’Orr have developed a handy flowchart for you to follow to help out in situations just like this one. Using our patented “choose your own slander” system, you will […]
Pez’s note: This is my raw reactions from last night. It is a little messy, but oh well. I have had my coffee and as a borderline insomniac, I slept relatively well last night. When I woke up this morning, I made my egg white omelette and turned 98.5 The Sports Hub on via the […]
Pez Plays GM is a multi-part entry looking at how I would structure the Bruins if I were to play General Manager. This is a series I’ve done in the past. Part I focused on identifying the Bruins core and assessing which free agent(s) I would bring back to the team. Today is a meatier […]
Welcome to Pez Plays GM! Ever year I’ve been with DOY, I’ve ran this segment. A lot of people hate it, some people like and it and most won’t read it. The next series of posts are simple: I am the Bruins GM and I am trying to build a Cup contender. Part I will […]
