I'm not sure, but you know how the Montreal fans were stuffing the ballot box for the All-Star game - I'm almost positive that some Penguins fans have done the same thing. The NHL needs to wake up and stop being so FUCKING stupid....

Either that or everyone is voting for Crosby and Malkin because they are the two most popular people in the league. Just a thought though.

Well dick head...what about the two Penguins defenseman...neither one of them have played this year....If I knew who you were I'd punch you right in the lip.....

Anonymous David said... are right...the all star ballet is a complete joke. The east totals are more than twice the west and there is no way Fleury,Gonchar or Whitney should be on there or any of those Canadians.

I would assume if as stays well that Savard, Chara and Thomas would all be there and Wheels in the rookie game.

I don't care if the entire starting line up is all Penguins, as long as there are no Canadiens starting.

The B's seemed to get a little lazy in the win tonight toward the end, not as much hustle. Are they letting this early success go to their heads? Love the team and am pleased with what they're doing right now, maybe I'm just afraid of a loss, I don't want the streak to end until 2012...

They are trying to get Axelsson going! Everyone here hates on him...he had a chance to leave a few years ago and decided to stay with the bruins, how about a little bit of slack here for a guy who showed loyality when times were tough. I personally am not a huge fan of his but he is as solid as they come defensivly and provides very good depth....and how long is Yelle gonna be out? any at all..if so he is that much more important.If he is expected to miss some time Chris Gratton would be a nice addition to the 4th line and a fairly cheap price tag.

Kobasew is a spark plug who fits in to the Bruins system.He isn't going anywhere!

I honestly don't know why there is so much talk about moving people out and bringing new guys in, especially a guy like Kobasew who is just starting to get his feel back and still producing while doing so. This guys fits into the system perfectly, and his game is only going to improve. I also feel bringing in Gratton would be a huge waste of what little money we have to work with considering we have a much better guy in Sobotka that could easily fill that void(we've seen what he can do late last year) and hes having a killer year down at Providence. So why not water the system and let some of these young guys grow, because I'm not sure if you've really noticed but that's been the biggest reason for the success of the team thus far. I just don't see the point in moving anyone or tinkering with the chemistry of this team because it's off the charts. Until we see them start to struggle, there's no reason for any changes.

Sobotka is an angry dwarf, smallest guy on the ice sometimes but has the biggest attitude

the bruins are on fire; first in the east and second (sometimes third) overall and we're still talking about making trades and line combos?

never happy. how about this: support your team! the coach and GM knows what they're doing, that's why pj isn't in providence. that's why gratton (who sucks, large) isn't on this team. that's why kessel wasn't traded for hossa. that's why we didn't trade everyone for bouwmeester. that's why you're at home picking your nuts. hi anonymousy, go fuck yourself.

I think the chemistry of the team is nice, I'm looking forward to seeing exactly what this team is capable of down the stretch.

I have been working out of town alot these days & do not get a chance to access this site as often as I would like to. Upon signing on today however, it appears that I certainly did not miss much.

You would think that the contributors would have, at the very least, one blog daily (especially the day & after a game) that us Bruin fans can chat about and put our two cents worth in. I do not think that that is asking for too much.

It's getting to the point now that if there is a post, we should declare a national holiday.

Get with the program guys!!!

Out of curiosity, can we get an update on the site? The B's have played 3 games since the last post. I'm not trying to rag on the writers here, but I'm sure there's a lot of us checking back all the time, and we need something new to go off on... Maybe consider adding another writer?

Tim Thomas has over 67000 write-in votes for the allstar game. pretty impressive. what's not impressive is somehow the NHL didn't include him in the standard voting? He did play in the allstar game last year... Poor.
