I’ve always been a contrarian when it comes to the Boston Bruins. I think most of it is that broken down Boston fan in me that refuses to ever look at something mildly positive. You all know the heartbreaking stories of the Boston Bruins. 2004 loss to the 7th seed Canadiens, 2009 loss to the […]
The New York Post has reported that Glen Sather and the New York Rangers have denied the Bruins request to speak to Assistant General Manager Jeff Gorton. “I haven’t given permission to anybody to speak to anyone and I won’t as long as we’re playing,” Rangers GM Glen Sather told The Post following the club’s […]
If you’re new to the series, check out parts one and two. Look at the 2015 free agent list, anyone out there tickle your fancy? Bree: Ooh, I love Free Agency. It’s my very own Christmas in July in which someone gets pretty presents and some others get coal. Coal they actually pay real money for. […]
If you missed this series, I feel bad for you son. We got some roster problems, but first read part one. Hit me! Charlie Jacobs has tasked you with making roster moves, which moves do you make? Bree: Sign: Spooner, Connolly and Hamilton. Spooner is excellent, Hamilton is slowly growing into his role and I don’t […]
According to professional newspaper journalist troll, Damien Cox, the Boston Bruins were in on a possible trade for Dion Phaneuf. Destinations for Dion: Given that Boston was one of the teams most interested in Maple Leaf defenceman Dion Phaneuf at the trade deadline, and restated that interest after he wasn’t traded, it makes sense that […]
In an alternate universe, Jeremy Jacobs has fired Cam Neely and hired his arch-nemesis as Bruins President. Figuring that no one can do a worse job than bring a team in 2015 back to 1980, he hired eight bloggers who have been critical, negative and at most time down-right nasty regarding the Bruins. He figured that […]
NHL Commish Garry Bettman held a press conference this morning and, holy shit, did he have some awful hot takes. First off, we’ll start the least offensive remark. It just goes downhill from there. One of the controversies of the week was Winnipeg Jets fans chanting “Katy Perry” to mock Corey Perry because being a […]
The original Boston Bruins “big man” (at least for us young babes) is hanging up his skates. Hal Gill is retiring after 16 years in the NHL. Gill played in a total of 1,108 career NHL games with six teams. “I am so thankful to have played for such great organizations. I was lucky to have […]
Well that was quick. 9 days after being fired by the Boston Bruins, ex-General Manager Peter Chiarelli is expected to be hired today as the Edmonton Oilers’ President of Hockey Operations.

No surprise here. Bruins centerman Mr. Perfect Patrice Bergeron was named a finalist for the Selke yet again. The Selke Trophy is awarded annually “to the forward who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game.” This is Bergeron’s fourth straight nomination for the Selke Trophy. He won the award last year and in 2012. Per […]
It’s been a week since the Boston Bruins canned team GM Peter Chiarelli, so it’s about time we give him the traditional DOY send off and go down the Photoshop Memory Lane.
TheScore has reported that Zdeno Chara will miss the World Championships thanks to a fractured ankle. Defenseman Zdeno Chara will not play in the World Championship in his native Czech Republic due to an ankle fracture, coach Vladimir Vujtek told Sport SME. Chara missed practice late in the regular season after blocking a David Booth shot during […]
First it was GM Peter Chiarelli this morning. Now it’s three scouts, including European head scout Jukka Holtari. Bruins will have a presser at 3pm discussing the Chiarelli firing. We’d imagine there might be a throwaway remark about these guys, too.
