With round one against Ottawa starting Wednesday night, fan speculation is running wild as the Bruins return to the playoffs. Will they go far? Will they lose early? Who knows? Anything can happen, it’s the playoffs.

Here’s five reasons the Bruins will go far…(continue reading)

JFK’S First Term

By Patrick Donnelly



Ask not what the Bruins can do for you. Ask what you can do for the Bruins… Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson and the Bruins agreed to a three-year entry-level contract on Sunday afternoon after a huge win against the Chicago Blackhawks. JFK is expected to report to Boston during the week where he will practice prior to Tuesday’s game against Tampa Bay and will be available to make his debut that night, Thursday night against Ottawa, Saturday afternoon against Washington, or maybe even the playoffs. Personally, I cannot wait to see the novel of a last name that is Forsbacka-Karlsson stitched onto a Bruins jersey. Remember how Jarrod Saltalamacchia’s jersey looked when he was with the Red Sox? Yeah, get ready for a new and improved version of that. Great names are just made for Boston. . . (continue reading)

Charlie McAvoy is now officially a member of the Boston Bruins organization as he and the Bruins agreed to an amateur tryout contract (ATO). So, he will now report to Providence of the AHL where he will earn valuable experience at the professional level, yet not burn a year off his entry-level contract (ELC). . . . (continue reading)

Why the Patriots Don’t Need to Re-sign Player X

By: Joe Spinosa

Right now I am thinking to myself, “who are you, and what have you done to the cynical Spin who is never satisfied with anything?” For years, I have done the thing that few in the New England area have been willing to do, question the roster-building acumen of Bill Belichick. . .

Another trade deadline has come and gone on Causeway Street. Unlike Danny Ainge and the Celtics down the hall, Don Sweeney and the Bruins actually made an addition. Sorry Danny, had to say it; the opportunity presented itself. . . (continue reading)

Boston Bruins 2017 Trade Deadline Preview

By Pat Donnelly

Buy? Sell? Stand pat? What will Don Sweeney and Cam Neely do come Wednesday afternoon? As I began this article, nobody in the Eastern Conference who is jockeying with the Bruins for a playoff spot had made any moves stating loud and clear that they are going for the playoffs. Revisiting this a little while later, Ottawa, Montreal, and Toronto have all made deals that show they are committed to making the playoffs. Unless Montreal keeps struggling, the Bruins won’t really have to battle them for a playoff spot. However, Ottawa and especially Toronto are the two biggest teams in the way of the Bruins and their playoff hopes. . . (continue reading)

Eulogy: Claude Julien’s Job

by Pat Donnelly



Horrendous, atrocious, embarrassing, heartbreaking, sickening, shameful; I could go on for days. Words like those are all microcosms of the way the Boston Bruins are currently being run by management.

Coward, sheep, putz, worthless, scum: all words that can describe either Cam Neely or my fella Donnie Sweeney, they’re interchangeable at this point.

Avoidable, adjective, meaning: able to be avoided or prevented. Why this word? Well, ladies and gentlemen, if you haven’t figured it out by now, that’s exactly what firing Claude Julien was, avoidable. . . (continue reading)
