Okay, I am wearing my flame retardant clothes today because this is going to be a subject that is so sore you’d think it was hanging off of Tyler Seguin’s upper lip. Renaud Lavoie from RDS tweeted this out today: Bruins signed Jordan Caron. 1 year at $600 000. One way contract.
Big up to AlfredosSauce on the Bruins subreddit for showing me this: OHL Prospect Review 10. Belleville Bulls – David Pastrnak – Forward The Bulls opted to take Pastrnak, a Czech forward (playing in Sweden) who the Bruins took 25th overall at the 2014 NHL draft. The stocky winger had success at the U-18′s and […]
Let’s talk about Matt Bartkowski, shall we? During the 2012-2013 year, Matt Bartkowski played pretty well given the small sample size. Given the 11 games he played, Bartkowski posted a couple of assists, got about 14 minutes of ice time a game with most of it at even strength. It was a good jumping off […]
Milan Lucic is no stranger to fighting. Or making idle threats in a handshake line. Or screaming things drunkenly outside of a Starbucks. Or being talked to the police because of some drunken bros in Vancouver. Here’s to you Milan!
Ah summer time. Nothing is happening in Boston right now w/ the black and gold unless you count Matt Bartkowski agreeing to a new contract and announcing a new practice facility as something. Okay, let me rephrase that. Nothing exciting is happening. So we decided to try our hand at a mailbag of sorts where we […]
Much like last year, Tuukka Rask wants you to choose his new pads or the upcoming season. You can do this by checking out the Vaughn Facebook page and voting in their post. Basically choose C because goalie pads these days are so fucking boring. Big up to InGoal Magazine and Boston Sports then […]
The Bruins have officially announced that they will be building a new practice facility in the Allston/Brighton area. This announcement means that the Bruins will be leaving Ristuccia Arena, where they’ve practiced since 1987-88. The construction for the new practice facility should be finished in the fall of 2016. Seriously, this is offseason news. Is […]
Mick Colageo of Rink Rap wrote about Matt Bartkowski’s upcoming arbitration hearing: The rules are basically that the player and team can negotiate right up in time of the scheduled hearing (which would fall between July 20 and Aug. 6), so most cases are avoided at the doorway to the hearing. It avoids all the […]
Well, I guess it is time for the tribute I never wanted to do. On July 1st, Jarome Iginla signed a 3 year, $16M contract with the Colorado Avalanche – ending his tenure with the Boston Bruins. Fuck, lets get it over with.
It has become a tradition around here that when a player is not re-signed or is traded in the offseason we have a little photoshop vigil in their honor to say thank you. Honestly, I never thought “Hi, I’m Chad Johnson” would take off, but here we are. Who knew a throw away line where […]
I know Savard’s LTIR status is brought up a lot, so here we go. Before Free Agency starts in about 45 minutes, lets talk about Savard’s LTIR money. Teams who have LTIR candidates (Boston, Philly) DO NOT get IR cap relief in the summer, but those teams are given a 10% overage allowance to spend […]
[12:19pm] – Chad Johnson officially signs with the New York Islanders for 2 years, $2.6M We’ve gone over the expectations for this off-season and why they should be low. We’ve played Armchair GM. Now it is time for us to stop playing hypothetical and see if Peter Chiarelli can work some magic. He’s already qualified […]
Agent Kent Hughes confirms Bruins have sent a qualifying offer to Jordan Caron. — Dan Cagen (@DanCagen)
The Bruins didn’t make any trades. The Bruins have no cap space. The off-season looks bleak, but never say never…right? RIGHT?! Meh, this isn’t about the Bruins cap structure, this is about the NHL Entry Draft. The Bruins did pretty well over the weekend, especially with a steal. #25 RW David Pastrnak Chip did his homework […]
Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss. But at least we drafted the foreign exchange student from ‘Can’t Hardly Wait’! You remember him, right? The one who is taught to ask everyone to touch his penis?? Look at the headshot, and then look at the GIF. Go ahead…tell me I’m wrong. […]
