Like I have said, for me its not what has happened in the past that bothers me, its his attitude. As far as your statement about "playing the game the right way" I dont think there is "right way" to play. the B's, Philly and such play a hard hitting, physical game, MTL is obivoiusly built to skate, teams like WSH are built for firewagon styles of hockey and such..... I dont think any of those ways are wrong, they are just different and if it works for your team thats great. And youve heard it from a B's fan here first: every team, even Boston, has divers so Im not of the "GET UP" crowd in Beantown.

I can understand that aspect and he does give us "another big bodied skater" with talent for little money toward the cap but my concerns are attitude. He seems like a guy who just doesnt get that he gets bounced around or sat because he doesnt produce at times and feels entitled. We have a pretty decent farm system going right now and we have already gotten a Cup out of guys coming up from the AHL and still have others that are looking pretty ready to win a job. Why take the risk on a guy who is not living to that potential and could create problems for guys who could slide right in and do the same thing. And if Benny puts up 20+ goals and has a 50+ point season I will come back and retract all these statements.

I was less than enamored with signing Pouliot. Not because of the punch or whatever because it is what it is. He said yesterday after the signing that he basically wants to be playing on the top 6. When he has done nothing to prove he is worthy of a top 6 role. He wants that spot handed to him though. When is it ok to stop talking about "untapped potential" and start talking about a bust?

haha well theres always dreaming of finding room and cap space for Stamkos too but I try to stay at least IN the vague area of the stratosphere....

Shhh...... not so loud. Ive got a rep to defend. If people started to hear that there were bruins fans with common sense then everything starts to spiral out of control.....

I apologize then if I was unclear in my wording.

Crosseyed - you missed the point of that. It wasnt saying the Bruins shouldnt have said anything, I was pointing out that using the Penguins as the example of how to deal with it is flawed.

I have a slightly used Kaberle to sell, still plenty of tread left on the ol' tires, can give you ok minutes, passes clean, only hitch in his giddy up is his inability to shoot at any point where a legitimate opportunity presents itself but otherwise in fine working order. Like to take a shot at an Ehrhoff or see Kampfer up with the team fulltime. Inquire within.

I agree that Chara should have sat, I'm even cool with "Chara and Pacioretty spoke to each other via phone over the matter" and dont need a full blown apology. But your argument that the organization should have stepped up like the Penguins did is flawed. How many hits did it finally take before Shero and Bylsma said something? and unless Im mistaken and if I am I would love for someone to correct me, Mario is still sulking in the corner in his mansion after taking his puck and going home post Islanders debacle......
