Let me start by apologizing for the lack of anything on here. I can fill you in on the reasons why but we all have stuff going on that eats our time. I am back and this site will live on another season if anyone is still interested.
I can say though that I had a hard time with the end of the season, the draft and some decisions that have been made. Since then, I am back down to earth and am finding positives in a lot of moves. I truly feel the team was stagnant and needed something larger to happen, well it did as you all know.
Don’t want to flog a dead horse and re-hash everything that has happened so let’s move on to this season.
The one major thing that I am excited for is competition, excitement, desire to play for the Bruins. I think that this was an element that has been missing for some and that culture rubs off on other players. I can’t pick a player at this years training camp that isn’t chomping at the bit to prove themselves, prove last year was a fluke and compete hard for a roster spot. This is still a talented team and Sweeneely will make adjustments on the fly as this is a winning organization that will do what they need to to make the show. That’s all we can expect from them is energy, effort and to make the playoffs. They are now under the cap with some hungry players and room to adjust.
This Bruins fan is now excited and can’t wait for the season to begin!
With the emergence of Pastrnak on the first line, it seems that he is a perfect fit to this team. Not only does it make the top line a top line again, it puts everything line back to where it should be. I am glad that they kept him up as it was really only about 35 games of ELC contract burned which is minimal considering what the Bruins needed and what he is providing. They still need to grab a bottom nine forward and a top 4 dman if they want to be true contenders. This team is solid and playing lights out right now… hopefully Marchands bullshit didnt slow the process. Paille to the rescue?
Not sure how to read into the season so far. Poor effort, bad decisions, too many rookies and too many important departures?
Is it time to panic or give the team some time to gel? What say you?
I hope everyone has had a great summer of patiently waiting for the season to start. Without any movement thus far, I expect some activity to pick up in the next week or two.
Possible players on the way out: Boychuk, Kelly, Bartkowski, McQuaid
Possible new players: Pastrnak, Spooner, Fraser, Leino, Gagne, Yakupov
Players needing contracts: Krug, Smith
This is just what the media has speculated but nothing will happen until someone is traded. Put your opening lineups forward for some pre-training camp shitz n’ gigglz!!
This series is going to be down right nasty!
20 games left and hopefully a long playoff run! Did Chia do enough? What are your thoughts on the pick ups?
