Bruins Playoff Fortunes

So Boston opens the playoffs on Wednesday at home against the New York Islanders after claiming the Northeast title and 2 seed in the East. Wait, what's that you say? The Bruins screwed the pooch,...

Tim Thom considering taking the year off

12

Very odd. Doubt it happens but intriguing nonetheless. Interesting aspect to it is the fact that his 35+ contract means retiring doesn't remove his cap hit from the books.

"You have to give them credit. Their organization, their coaching staff, they’re classier than that," Bruins head coach Claude Julien said. "They don’t do that. I don’t think that they’d send messages because they’re eliminated and go after a team and try to take away their chances. I don’t think they’d do that. I trust my knowledge of Lindy and his crew to be pretty accurate."

Claude with some brilliant gamesmanship... painting Lindy into a corner

Tuukka

"Tuukka Rask sustained a lower abdomen strain/groin strain and will be sidelined 4-6 weeks" Definitely better than some of the alternatives... still not a great situation though.

Andrew Ference, a political opposite of Tim Thomas, on the Boston Bruins goalie's White House snub: "It's not like the locker room all of a sudden changed one day. It's the same personnel and the same personalities. We're all practically married to each other. It's not like there are too many secrets on viewpoints and personalities. Maybe it's interesting for everybody else to read on the outside. For us it's just another day. It's the same family we've had for the last few years."

Lupul and Lundqvist?!

+

ASG assistant captains. Lundqvist is a stellar goalie but I don't get having a goalie as the A in this situation. Lupul just makes zero sense... first ASG, no star-power and doesn't lead the league (4th, yes but still). Just makes zero sense to me.

Silly Canucks

Apparently a Canucks staffer has some unresolved anger issues with the Bruins...

No discipline for McQuaid

In a move that surprised many, myself included, the league's department of player safety has decided that no further discipline is required for McQuaid and that his major and game misconduct were...

Kaberle to Montreal?!

Carolina already gave up on their prized FA acquisition and sent him to Montreal for Jaro Spacek. http://tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=382331 Spacek is on IR which tells you all you need to know about...

"I wish I knew," Julien said. "I really wish I knew. I guess when they announced the misconduct to Lucic, I just shook my head. I guess that was merit for being kicked out. That's all I can come up with." Julien on getting tossed... really hope he is omitting something serious...

BRUINS BEAR IS BACK!

Video at the bottom of the PD article. Not quite as good as past ones but I am not sure the 'Date within the Division' ad will ever be surpassed!

DISASTER

KHL team Lokomotiv in plane crash. "Among the NHL alumni on Lokomotiv's roster as of Aug. 31: Josef Vasicek, Pavol Demitra(notes), Karel Rachunek, Ruslan Salei(notes), Karlis Skrastins(notes) and Red Wings goalie prospect Stefan Liv"

Wade Belak dead

3

"Wade Belak has reportedly been found dead in his Toronto condo. Belak appeared in 15 games with the Nashville Predators this past season, racking up 18 penalty minutes. In 549 career games played between the Leafs, Predators, Colorado Avalanche, Calgary Flames and Florida Panthers, Belak had eight goals, 25 assists and 1263 penalty minutes. The former Maple Leaf was set to take part in the CBC program "Battle of the Blades."" What the hell is going on here? 3 fighters, 3 suicides inside of six months.

Sheer Awesome

I know this is off topic and in no way related to the Bruins or hockey but I just couldn't help but share this gem of a rebuttal!

Regarding fighters

I had a discussion with some on here previously regarding fighters and the impending death of the age of the 'goon'.  My contention (and many others I am sure) is that fighting and enforcing is...
