I saw this tweet pop up in my timeline this morning: SKA of the
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:
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]
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 […]
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 […]
The Bruins have announced their preseason schedule but, unfortunately, have not indicated if any will be televised at this point. The preseason schedule is as follows: Sunday, September 20 (Providence, RI) -New Jersey Devils at Boston Bruins (Dunkin’ Donuts Center, Providence, RI, 7:00 p.m. ET) Tuesday, September 22 (Boston, MA) -Washington Capitals at Boston Bruins […]
This city is so weird when it comes to their sports teams. News broke last week that Dougie Hamilton’s agents were looking at a contract between 6-7 million dollars per year and the Bruinsphere, basically, exploded. Many were starting up their cars, ready to drive Dougie to the airport and move on. Here’s a small […]
Boom. Today the Bruins have announced that they have signed Providence College center and unrestricted free agent Noel Acciari to a two year deal. Acciari captained the 2015 NCAA Champion Providence College Friars and also won the Hockey East Defense Foward of the Year award. Here’s a quick rundown from reddit user u/tuukkas. Here’s a (very) […]
Hey Anton, welcome to the Bruins bud. The Bruins announced today that they have signed Anton Blidh to an entry level contract. Blidh spent last season playing for Frölunda HC of the Swedish Hockey League where he scored 5 goals. He also was on the Swedish team for the U-20 World Juniors where he scored a […]
