The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same

Unbelievable, it literally is un-friggin-believable. How many players on this team can possibly get hurt in a given season? As if significant injuries to Patrice Bergeron and Andrew Alberts wasn't enough, now we have to contend with Marc Savard and Chuck Kobasew missing significant time. Two of our best offensive options for an already offensively deficient team will probably be gone for the remainder of the regular season.

Savard, a cracked bone in his back, and Kobasew, fractured tibia, won't be seeing game action any time soon. Once again, how many things have to actually go wrong before it's too much?

I don't think I could be rooting for the B's anymore than I am now. If they are able to make it to the playoffs with a band of rookies, some aftermarket players, and one Norris trophey candidate, it will be improbable and unbelievable.

As always, lets go B's.

Lets take a short look at the injuries so far this season.
  1. Patrice Bergeron - Grade 3 concussion, out since October
  2. Andrew Alberts - Concussion, neck problems, out since November
  3. Manny Fernandez - Knee, has missed almost all season
  4. Tim Thomas - Groin, missed several games
  5. Zdeno Chara - Shoulder, missed 5 games
  6. Marc Savard - Cracked bone in back, out indefinitely
  7. Chuck Kobasew - Fracutred tibia, out at least a month
  8. Aaron Ward - Ankle/Back - missed portions of the season
  9. Andrew Ference - Sprained knee, Misssed past few games, will be missing more
  10. Glen Murray - Groin, missed significant time

Feel free to add on anymore casualties as this could be just a short list. We have lived and died by compensating for injuries this season and it will be no different in the remaining 6 games. So, sit back and enjoy, as this should be interesting.

bruins will beat the leafs tonight, the sabres once and the sens once. they will lose to buffalo in their other game in OT.
washington is cooked...they'll lose tonight in tampa.

place your bets, this is solid.

The only team we can't keep down are the Caps - they are on fire. I agree we can take care of the Laffs tonight, Sabres too. But Washington needs to lose some games. I'd love to play the Pens first round - inexperienced D and shaky goaltedning (yes shaky) I'll take that.

If ever there was a time for Kessel to step up and play like he should, now is the time.

Thankfully even if the caps pass us, Philly ought to drop in the standings. Two more against Pittsburg and another two against Jersey make up 4 of their remaining 5

Bruins are poised to take 6th. If the rangers drop their next game, boston will rank higher via the greater number of points earned against the rangers. whoever we play in the 1st round would be good!

pittsburgh: i feel strongly about an upset here. we match-up well against this team and they have shaky goaltending. bruins scoring + crappy goaltending = 3-1 bruins

carolina: boston in 6. the bruins will pummel this team that is without brind'amour. bruins toughness will prevail.

habs: payback time. much like how the sens owned the leafs in the regular season then they shit the bed in the playofffs, this is our time to pay-out pain. habs injuries are starting to creep-up and they can't deal with them like the b's can. no koivu? uh-oh!

new jersey: brodeur 2008 isn't brodeur 1997. julien knows their system inside-and-out. payback for julien.

I think it's very wishful thinking to say the least, but I like your attitude.

Playoffs are indeed a totally different season.

If the B's do make the playoffs they're going to have their hands full with any team they face.

Different season indeed!

I can safely say the Bruins are a tougher team than any in the Eastern Conference...and I think that will matter most.
