Bruins move to FM

Here is a press release regarding next seasons radio contract:

The Boston Bruins announced today that they have reached an
agreement on terms to extend their contract with CBS RADIO Boston, which has been the radio home of the Bruins since the 1995-96 NHL season.

Additionally, CBS RADIO Boston announced today the arrival of “98.5
The Sports Hub,” which will debut on Thursday, August 13 at 98.5 on
the FM radio dial. This new FM sports station - the only FM station of
its kind in the Boston marketplace - will serve as the radio home of the Boston Bruins beginning in the 2009-10 season and the New England Patriots of the NFL beginning with their 2009 season.

“This is an exciting day for not just Bruins fans, but for fans of
all of Boston’s sports teams,” said Bruins Principal Charlie Jacobs.
“For the first time in Boston, listeners will have an all-sports
station on the FM dial which will be the home of the Bruins and the New England Patriots. CBS RADIO Boston has truly been a great partner of the Bruins over the last 14 years and we are thrilled to continue thispartnership with them as they launch their new Sports Hub venture.”

The new station will probably feature lots of Bruins talk. Good news for the fans who listen to sports talk radio. The past couple of seasons the Bruins would barely get any mention on WEEI even during playoff time.

This is awesome news! I can't wait for it. A sports radio station will be great for the Bruins and for the fans.

my question is this......with so many key players leaving the bruins/habs rivalry, does it lose its meaning. i think it is the greatest rivalry of all time in hockey, and it has lived up to that especially in the last couple of years. but with so many key players gone form both sides(mostly montreal) is this rivalry not going to be as entertaining as the last two years, because i lived and died with these two teams playing each other, and the pure hatred that was easily visible.

wow. this is huge. they get both bruins and pats game. weei is in for some serious competition. felger (ok with hockey, good withfootball, hates basketball) and tanguay (pats radio host, good with pats, sox but bad with bruins) are suppose to have their own afternoon shows. toucher and rich stay on and host the morning segment. i like it alot, there should be alot of hockey and football talk instead of politics and celtics.

sad to see 104.1 go but i am excited that there hopefully will be bruins talk on this station. weei has gotten better but still does not do a good job talking about the bruins. it will be hard though for this sports hub station to compete with weei, but we love our teams and our sports talk shows here in boston.

btw will the bruins just sign kessel and hunwick already so i can stop checking nhl sights every 5 seconds.

Anonymous, are you asking if a handful of players will affect an 82 year old rivalry with more playoff rounds played between each other than any two other North American pro sports teams?

If so, the answer is "no".

The perfect trade
I will trade phil kessel and andrew ference for sheldon souray and andrew cogliano.You will get a puck moving d and a young foward that has a lot of up side not as good a kessel but young.What do you think.

As much as Souray would look good in Boston, we would have to make even more trades to fit in his contract. He has a 5.4 million cap hit. We could sign Kessel for less then that.

What about Kessel and Ference to Chicago for Seabrook and a prospect? Chicago will need to move salary by next year for Keith, Kane, and Toews. Adding Kessel to an offense loaded with Kane, Hossa, Sharp, Toews and Versteeg would be a welcome addition.

Boston would get a legit #2 d-man that would fit under the cap and a future prospect. (Maybe Beach, Sweatt, or Aliu)

i dont think we would need to give up that much to get seabrook because chicago has to dump salary, and probably could not afford kessel. i think it would cost ference picks and prospects. but i like the thinking of seabrook.

i would be fine with the bruins doing nothing major, dumping a little salary like sturm and if we have to ward, picking up a physical d-man to platoon with boychuk in the 6th spot and going into the season with that.

btw check out the biggest piece of shit article on about the winter classic without ovechkin, scott burnside is a fucken joke, he should be promoting hockey on, not putting it down.

Funny enough we actually got WBZ1030AM here in Niagara Falls, ON. It would come in clear as a daisy in the evening. Day games couldn't be heard though. I'll miss the ability when driving around or just hanging out at night to simply flip the dial and there they were. Didn't need anything fancy...just an AM radio.
