    Offseason Game Thread

    If you don't already have ducts for forced hot air heating, you should consider mini-splits for AC. Installing ducts is a pain and usually will eat up closet space in older houses.

    Offseason Game Thread

    Count me in as liking yard work, especially this summer. I hate to sit around and without anywhere to go it keeps me busy. My lot was on the edge of an old farm and as a result one side was years of accumulated dirt and rock overgrown with brush. I've been working down the line the last few...

    Bruins Offseason Roster Thread

    Off the top of my head if STL brings back Pietrangelo they'll have to move salary. Parayko might be available, although I think the B's would have trouble fitting his salary in if Krug comes back.

    Bruins Offseason Roster Thread

    If Krug stays, and I hope he does, they're going to continue to have problems with size on D. I don't see a good D construction that features potentially 4 guys 6' or under. 2 years in a row they missed having someone like Kevan Miller to help clear out the front and provide a physical...

    Game 5- Bruins vs. Bolts

    Chara has turned back the clock a little. Best he has played since the restart. I'm sure he knows this could be it for him.

    Game 5- Bruins vs. Bolts

    I love that Emrick says no call on the ice so they can't review. Then WTf did they do on the Ritchie hit? Paquette should not get any benefits of the doubt. League remains garbage.

    Bruins vs. Tampa Bay - Game 4

    99 times out of 100 after hit and response like that both end up in the box. Ritchie has to respond there.

    8/26: Game 3 - Ride the Lightning

    Last change will help tonight. Cooper did a good job of getting the matchups he wanted in the 1st 2 games. If they go with 7 D, I can see Cliffy getting some wing time on DZone starts and Cassidy being able to better spot Chara in the best situations for him. I really don't want to see Chara...

    Tuukka opts out of the rest of the season

    I do hope that whenever the 21-22 season resumes Tuukka is between the pipes. 1st, because he will undoubtedly be the best player they could have in that position. Close behind that is because it would drive all the haters absolutely nuts.

    Tuukka opts out of the rest of the season

    If you "dislike the athletic capabilities of the man" you have no clue. Pinning the Flyers loss and claiming he comes up small in the biggest moments reinforces that.

    8/15 - @ Canes (Game 3). Let's win a game.

    Absolute defensive clinic by the B's and especially the forwards. Totally dominated.

    Tuukka opts out of the rest of the season

    Tuukka knows exactly what the public reaction to opting out will be. He's never shown that he cares about what people outside of the locker room say about him. I'm actually envious of the mental fortitude that it takes to make such a high profile decision knowing the vitriol that will come his...

    2019-2020 Bruins

    Totally filthy hit that shouldn’t be judged solely on the basis of end result. If the round robin and play in games are any more indication it will take a severe injury to get their attention. Nary a peep about the number of cross checks and boardings sending someone head first into the...

    Real Fantasy- Draft

    The one player I'm probably most disappointed in not getting due to him being a perfect fit for my merry band of miscreants and divas was PK Subban. Since I couldn't get him I'll fill out my roster with his brother. I still believe in this guy's talent and he'll do well giving Price some days...

    Real Fantasy- Draft

    Wanted to go younger, but that tree was picked clean. We’ll fill out our D core with Brendan Dillon, D Marchand - Crosby - Wilson M Tkachuk - Coleman - Z Kassian E Kane - Pageau -Lemieux Lucic -Frederic-Perry Edmundson - Doughty Klefbom-Fabbro Dillon - Gudas Price Xxx

    Adam Schefter: SJH will carry his water. Or will he?

    I know this is semantics, but I don't consider Schefter a reporter. He's an access journalist. His entire lifeblood is his ability get inside information and be the 1st with the scoop. Everything he does is through the lens of "will I be able to keep that source". I get that maintaining...

    Adam Schefter: SJH will carry his water. Or will he?

    I agree with this 100%. I have no doubt that the outrageous theories about what the story could be were mostly plants to make the actual story appear less heinous. Judging by the reactions (outside of SoSH) it was a very successful ploy. All those media types who took the time to tweet out...

    July NHL News---Will we really play hockey?

    I think you are misinterpreting that. The league set guidelines that teams are not allowed to give indications of why a player isn't available so that they don't divulge Covid-19 test results. "Unfit to play" is how they are directed to respond when a player is not available for a practice...

    Stanford Cutting 11 Varsity Sports Programs

    It's not only about over representation of Caucasians. Elite schools also typically over represented by Asians, so it would not surprise me that sports that are both heavily Caucasian and Asian were on the cut list for those reasons. When my son was in the college application process I took...

    Real Fantasy- Draft

    This guy is total burnt toast. Really doesn't have much left, but he epitomizes what this team is all about and is ready to pass his bag of tricks down to the next generation. Pickings are slim and it's hard to pass on a guy the office of player safety has on speed dial. How many teams will...
