Zing! That's good stuff. Gonna steal it..

I salute your attitude, but some of us derive enjoyment and relaxation from hating the Bruins and everything about them--right down to their cheesy anthem singer.

huzzah! Well done, you. I did get the sense it was an homage to the Habs fans, but surely he knew it would pique the whiney Ottawans too. Good on him.
- Comment on Habs call up Beaulieu, Nattinen from Hamilton (2014-01-17 11:13:42)
Seriously, are there lamer people than Sens fans? They sit around booing PK all night, and then they're shocked—SHOCKED!—when he rubs an OT goal in their faces. Hahaha!
- Comment on Habs call up Beaulieu, Nattinen from Hamilton (2014-01-17 10:56:45)
Beaulieu shoots left. His call-up makes sense given that Murray and Bouillon are the most frequent members of the taxi squad (both shoot left). But I too would like to see Pateryn get his chance. Can't be any worse than Diaz has been lately.

You forgot Johnny Boychuk on Mason Raymond and Ference on Jeff Halpern. Personally, I wonder if anyone around the Boston organization—Julien, Chiarelli, Jacobs or even silly Jack Edwards—has paused to consider how they got here and where they're headed. This is the kind of game they wanted. But in the last few games, they've lost two important players to scary hits, both of which the Bruins must concede were "hockey plays" as they themselves define such a thing. I'm talking about Boychuk and Loui Eriksson. They've lost a useful fourth-liner to suspension, and I assume Marchand will be feeling the after-effects of a filthy hit to the head (James Neal should get extra time off if he continues to lie about his intentions). The claim, articulated not long ago by Thornton himself, that fighting acts as a deterrent to this kind of thing is beyond risible. There is no code, only an escalating spiral of violence. Fighting can be a cause or an outcome, but for Boston the mode of retribution has never mattered. To them, it's not how perceived scores are settled; it's merely that they get settled through violence, and that the Bruins always have the upper hand in the intimidation arms race. In this twisted world view, Pacioretty's nudge on Chara after an OT goal justifies Chara's maiming attempt. Daniel Sedin standing his ground in the slot justifies a series of rabbit punches to the face. Subban's agitation and ability justifies an attempted knee-capping by Boychuk. It was bound to catch up to them sooner or later. But they won't get the message. They didn't learn from the concussions inflicted on Marc Savard and Patrice Bergeron. They won't learn from this. I just hope it's the beginning of their long decline.

- Comment on Bouillon will sit for Habs while Murray plays against Capitals (2013-11-22 13:29:39)
Agree. This was what was supposed to happen after Emelin returned, so I don't see a lot of point in nitpicking decisions to sit either Bouillon or Murray. They both have flaws, but they can each play a role. Neither was supposed to have a permanent place in the top 6 D.

Kinda like that glass-half-full perspective, which is often is short supply here.
