I mean Carolina traded a 3rd and 7th for a solid backup goalie/potential starter (on a dumpster fire of a team, but he should beat out Ward). The Bruins traded a 3rd round pick for a player who is arguably one of the five worst in the NHL.

Hextall traded the contract of a guy who hasn't played hockey since 2011 and now works for the league and a generously described third pairing defenseman with a first pairing contract for something.

Who just got voted into the HoF today. Wish the B's did that with Savard's $4.5M cap hit.

The Hamilton deal was weak and I have no idea what the Rinaldo thing was all about, but they just turned the Lucic deal into a nice return by flipping the goalie for a first and the kid from Miami OH

Hamilton just signed an offer with the Flames for just $250k more a year and one year longer than the Bruins offered.

I think it's fair to say that Sweeney is not good at his job.

Hamilton leaving will never bother me much. He's a good player, but the idea being spun with hindsight that he is a franchise defenseman is hysterically laughable.

Getting a weak return and then fucking it up at the draft is another story.

Also rumors that the B's are looking into Bickell.

There may actually be one franchise that would take Tanner Glass off the Rangers' hands after all.

He isn't right now but is projecting to be a franchise defenseman. Which I very much believe.

That's reading tea leaves, maybe you are right. In the meantime, my take on the news about the $250K/per and extra year is the opposite of Bombers - it doesn't look like he was ever going to sign an extension here.

Are there other ways to project 22 year old hockey players, especially defensemen? Give him a bridge contract and you risk running into a Subban situation.

That's fair. Like I said, I was in favor of bringing him back at the right price, and he's a good player. I'm just not sure I see the franchise thing. Time will tell, and it very well may turn out to be a terrible move.

Tappen is on the NHL Network, sadly. At least we still get to see her every once in a while.


Some good news:

NESN announced in a press release at 8:02 p.m. Thursday night that Naoko Funayama, the respected sideline reporter, will not have her contract renewed when it expires this summer.


Sarah Davis is an improvement.

Yes Julien going to Montreal was unexpected. I expected him to be hired by the end of the month but going to Montreal intensifies the rivalry ten-fold. Imagine if they meet in the playoffs !!! Both teams needed a shot in the arm and a change in leadership is a good way to start, although I have mixed emotions about Claude being canned by the B's. Shall I say the classless B's announcing Julien's firing on the day of the Patriots Super Bowl parade.

This team is going to get on a roll. The first line is fantastic. Pastrnak a career night last night. Hard to imagine a better night, yes I know he is only 21. Pastrnak's 3rd goal with a between the legs pass to himself was outstanding.

Team did falter at the end of the regular season costing home ice advantage for the East. Memories of Claude with those losses.

Despite the scores there have been times that the ice is tilted toward the boston goal. Much will depend on Rask. But yes they are real good.

They were also averaging an injured guy per game at that point. Amazing what they’ve been able to do considering basically all their top guys outside of Rask, Krug and Pastrnak missed a decent chunk of the season with injuries.

Andersen has been great, but part of the reason is that Toronto has largely handled the traffic out front. About the only time the Bruins got any traffic in front of him they either scored or the puck landed on the stick of the world’s most expensive checking line forward, Rick Nash, (16 goals in 82 playoff games), which as Ranger fans could tell you is the same as not getting traffic in front. Bottom line is the Maple Leafs have adjusted and the Bruins have not, that is the primary reason they are in danger of hacking up a series they should win.

I hate to admit you're right here, and I hope Nash plays a bigger role in the next series, but even looking at the numbers from hist last three regular seasons, he's clearly on the downside of his career. Sweeney shouldn't give him too much this off-season, if anything.

The Bruins finally decided to crash the net and look what happened? I’ll be interested to see how they do against Tampa which has a far superior defensive corps vis a vis Toronto. I honestly have no feel for how good the Bruins actually are. At the beginning of the series I thought they were a Cup contender. The last three games, not so much and even with last night’s win, their defense looks extremely suspect and Chara, who has been skating around with a fork sticking out of his back the past few years looks even slower and more tired then before—his fluke goal notwithstanding. If he and Girardi end up on the ice at the same time it will look like each team has a guy dragging a hundred pound bag of sand behind him, the difference being that Girardi is only logging 15-16 minutes while Chara logs 22-24.

Rask needs to play a lot better than he did most of this series. He had stretches were he looked strong, but much of the series was not great.

Toronto is really fast, which exposes the Bruins D other than Krug from time to time. Was always worried about the matchup, and given how they played after the first two games, they are probably lucky to have won. Then again, you say that about a lot of playoff hockey.

Toronto, Tampa, and Boston are probably the three best teams in the East. Going to 7 wasn’t too surprising.
