The Time is Now

The Bruins' have played 55 games this season with 27 games remaining. They have games in hand on every single team(except Pittsburgh) in the league as well. Most people believe that the Bruins' playoff chances are slim, which they are. But do not rule them out completely. The next 6 games will make or break this season for the Bruins'. They play the Islanders, Sabres, Flyers, Maple Leafs, Lightning, and Panthers, all on the road. These 6 games are over the next 10 days. It is very possible that the Bruins' can come out with 4 or 5 victories in these 6 games. The games against the Islanders, Flyers, Maple Leafs, and Panthers are all winnable. The games against the Sabres and Lightning will be tougher. The Bruins could still come out with a point in one of these games though, if they force overtime. If that is the case they will then put themselves in position to make a run at the 8th and final playoff spot. Montreal has been sliding recently, and they have a very difficult schedule, one where they play Nashville, Carolina and New Jersey in the span of 8 days. Also to be noted is that the 8th and 4th seed are separated by only 3 points. Which means any of these teams start to struggle then they could very easily find themselves out of the playoff picture.

I have to disagree with you on that one. Forget about the playoffs; it's time to do the dirty job and sell what we have to sell and evaluate the roster.

It's not a coincidence if the B's are mediocre, year after year. They always chase chimera instead of taking a step back and act for the future. They did the same last year as they panic and send JT elsewhere. It makes no sense to delay the evaluation for a 8th spot and an early exit. The only purpose will be to put money in JJ's pockets.

It's time to see what we have in stock: No more York, way much less Timmy, way much less Donovan and Mowers and way much more Kessel, Karsums, Kalus, Lashoff and Stuart. It's time to broke the pattern where you never evaluate what you have in stock and make bad decisions because of that lack of knowledge. It's time to build and build a winner for years. The timing is perfect and it's time to do to what we have to do.

Yes I agree, if we do make it then it will be an 8th spot and a very early exist. I dont think they will make the playoffs, but I'm saying if they win 4 or 5 of these games then they are right there probably 2-4 points out at most. It's interesting to think about.
