    Trust me, the Bruins sect in Boston has and always will have that vibe so long as the core is here. You’re right most of these guys weren’t here 8 years ago, but the primetime players were. They’ve shown the ability to not show up, and have done it too frequently in the biggest moments. I’ll spare you the list, but I’m sure @Brass can concur.

     

    Agreed. There is nervousness in this game. Tuukka has shown that when the lights are the brightest, the goals he lets in are the softest. He's universally beloved in Boston, though. The nervousness, in my opinion, is more so felt by the Gallery God fans who have been forced out of the arena due to high ticket prices and snobs in suits. Boston sports don't have the Tawmy-from-Quinzee types anymore; they're essentially business meetings. There are both positive and negative aspects to that.

    It’s friggen going 7 because it always goes 7. Toronto has been far and away the better team all series, so theoretically they should win - and probably will. The difference for me has been Babcock/Cassidy. Babcock is putting on a coaching clinic and all Cassidy can do is tell them to dump, chase, lose the puck battle, repeat. Absolutely zero creativity. Marchand and Pastrnak are getting outworked and outplayed in every aspect. Lots of respect to Toronto for stifling the best line in hockey.

     

    Let’s talk officiating again. It’s awful. The first 2 Boston powerplays were really bad calls, then they missed a blatant boarding against Pastrnak only to be bailed out by a Marner DOG.

     

    I’m up in the air on that GI non-call. Rask was never going to make that save, but it could’ve gone either way. Bruins fans will blame that call for the loss of the game and possibly the series - completely ignoring the gift calls they got and couldn’t capitalize on. 

     

     

     

    The defensive zone coverage by the Bruins forwards has also been absolutely atrocious this series. A lot of offense is being generated by the Maple Leafs points because they're wide open and can do whatever they please.

    On a FB group I belong to a person got a 95/96 game worn Mighty Ducks at a Salvation Army... it was beyond filthy and unsalvageable. 

     

    We need pics of that.

    This comment really sucks.

     

    Billionaires are destroying our economies, our environments, and the very nature of the social contract. On the whole, they're way more likely to be caught up in sexual exploitation of marginalized groups simply because they want to be.

     

    I don't like the implication that being involved with hip-hop means you're more likely to seek prostitutes. I don't see the connection; old white dudes do just fine paying for trim all by themselves.

     

    Ok.

    It is totally legitimate to wonder how and if he will influence the storylines in his "competition".  Especially if ratings aren't where he wants them to be. Last time around, we could be sure that NBC would have no interest in such a thing.  But now?  With the league entirely under his control?  That remains to be seen.

     

    How much of a goddamned mark would you have to be to wonder if the XFL games are/were staged?
