Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli Confirms That Shawn Thornton Is Gone

Ugh. It was pretty much a foregone conclusion that the Bruins were looking to get younger and by doing that you have to get rid of the “old guard”. With Shawn Thornton becoming an unrestricted free agent this offseason, many believed Thornton would be done in Boston. Today, GM Peter Chiarelli basically confirmed it. Check […]

Bruins: Days of Future, uh, Future?

“Another day, another draft pick that would be a good fit for the Boston Bruins if the 2014 NHL Draft just so happens to transpire in an advantageous way that would greatly benefit the hockey club.” – Bo Jackson   We continue down the draft road to Philadelphia by making a stop BEHIND THE (former) […]

Draft 3

It Feels a Bit Draft-y Up in Here

Wow!  What a series, right?  The hockey world was shocked to see the Kings prevail in 5 games to win the Stanley Cup against the New York Rangers!  Ugh…No.  Despite multiple overtime games, the series was pretty boring and uneventful, and almost everyone’s prediction of domination from the west came to fruition.  Gary Bettman’s wet […]

S/T to The Score.


Briere & Gallagher Got Their Doctorate Apparently

The other night Montreal’s Brandan Prust nailed Rangers’ Derek Stepan with an egregious late hit to the head, which for Boston fans feels all too familiar. Awful. Stepan got a broken jaw for this and is out for who knows how long. Meanwhile Prust got a mere two games. Related: Dan Carcillo (who’s a piece of […]


Pump The Brakes On The “Trade Brad Marchand” Talk

The city of Boston has many nicknames: – The Hub – The Cradle of Liberty – Beantown But I have another nickname for this city, especially when it comes to their sport franchises: – The City of Overreaction It seems that once a player has a bad postseason for the Bruins the “trade him” birds […]


Former Bruin ‘Great’ Miroslav Satan Retires

After a 22-year-long career, Miroslav Satan is calling it quits and retiring. As a Bruin he had 10 points in 13 games played during the playoffs (14 in 38 in the regular season), including this doosie against the Sabres in Double OT. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BC_JTU4yotw This spurred the a new dance craze — The Satan. Also, we don’t […]
