Official New Location

Please check us out at our new location!!

-Matt and Pekese


Okay, I feel like I have not been clear, so let me try and make things such.

I am managing two blog right now, Bruinsrumors and The Boston Sports Blog.  I am not getting rid of Bruinsrumors, it will still be here.  The Boston Sports Blog is an experiment and it just like Bruinsrumors, with the same hockey info, except with all 4 major boston sports teams.  For those who are not interested in that, Bruinsrumors will contain only Bruins and hockey posts, so everyone is happy.

I moved Bruinsrumors over to Wordpress because it has a better presentation and for those who were getting upset with the lack up sidebar updates, wordpress should fix that.  The new Bruinsrumors location, same site as this, just better presentation is

The Boston Spots Blog, for those interested in not just the Bruins, is  

If The Boston Sports Blog fails, I will just manage this blog.  If everyone HATES the wordpress version, I will come back to use this one on blogger.

If you are still confused, or have any concerns, shoot me an email at, or leave a comment.

Olympics Preview : Canada and Czech

Here are potential lineups for team Canada and Czech. Milan Lucic has been invited to camp but his chances of making the team are slim. It would be great to see Lucic in his hometown of Vancouver representing his country, but he is young and team Canada is stacked with allstars. I hope I'm wrong, but I am leaving him off my roster, for now. Additionally, Marc Savard was not invited to Team Canada's camp. While that does not mean he will not make the team, it is a sign that GM Steve Yzerman is not considering him at this time. If an injury to a center arises, I fully expect Savard to get strong consideration for a spot. However, since Team Canada has so many centers, I put three of them on the wings, assuming Yzerman will choose the best players rather than the best lineup. It will be interesting to see how Team Canada is actually selected. I also did not include Scott Niedemrmayer because he may retire this season and therefore would not take part in the Olympics. Team Czech does not have the depth that Canada, Russia, or the U.S. rosters have, but they cannot be counted out because they have some very good players especially on their top lines. David Krejci is centering the first line, while Robert Lang is not included on this team because of his injury/retirement status for the upcoming season.

Team Canada

Extra: Morrow, Richards, Marleau


Extra: Campbell, Boyle, Phaneuf


Team Czech

Extra: Erat, Hudler


Extra: Spacek, Roszival

New Blog!!!!

Okay, so I have been spending the past few weeks trying to decide what to do with the blog.  I really love it, but I wanted something with more flexibility.  I also am a huge Celtics, Sox and Patriots fan as well, and I love to talk about not just the Bruins but every team.   I thought it would be an interesting concept to have what we had at Bruinsrumors for all the 4 major sports teams in New England.  

I know many of you here are just hockey fans, but this new blog will not change the content.  There will still be as many if not more pieces on the Bruins and NHL as were here.  The layout is a little more professional and the content will have more links.  There is also an easier way to update stuff like the sidebar and there is now the option of pages which makes it more website like.  I note, I am not going to stop Bruinsrumors.  I'm simply trying something new and if everyone hates it, then I will come back to this site.  I would like as much feedback as possible.  

The site is The Boston Sports Blog.  There is also a cool embedded chat which I thought was really neat.  

Edit:  I didn't say this, but I am still going to post some things here, so it's not like this site is gone as of now.  Basically, Bruinsrumors and everything here will be at The Boston Sports Blog, it will just also have the other teams as well.
