We Leaf fans welcome you to our misery. You, of course, have a future with the likes of Bergeron and Raycroft, so we won't welcome you for long.

You forgot to mention Brad Boyes in your list of the Bruins' future stars. Remind me of who the Leafs got for him and McCauley. Owen Nolan?

Anyway, the Bruins wait until people develop as stars before they trade them for prospects.

The Leafs trade their future stars to to other teams so that they can put together the 1998 All-Star team reunion (Allison, O'Neill, Lindros, etc.). Watch for Wendell Clarke, Doug Gilmour and Mike Palmateer to be signed in the off-season.

It's a totally different kind of pain.

Snort!

Bruins offer coaching, front-office, playing position to Ray Bourque

quote:
BOSTON—Citing continued leadership problems at the executive and strategic levels, as well as the fact that they could use a little help on defense, Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs expressed interest in signing former All-Star captain Ray Bourque to help the struggling Bruins "in a variety of ways."

"In addition to being a favorite of fans here in Boston, Ray Bourque is a proven champion," Jacobs said, referring to Bourque's 21 years with the Bruins and his brief stint with the Stanley Cup-winning Colorado Avalanche. "I believe the leadership, vision, and motivation he exhibited during two decades as a professional hockey player will translate extremely well to his new roles as head coach, general manager, and hockey player."

We signed Dougie along with the NHL's senior citizens, Phil Housley and Glen Wesley a couple years ago(last season or the one before). Gilmour got hurt his first game, and I'm not sure if he played at all after that. Wesley, I believe, was hurt when they got him and never played. I'm not sure if Housley played either. Phil Housley, I believe, wore the old style helmet right up till retirement .

Lol.

20+ years in Boston didn't make him one. On the other hand, if he figured out a way to make the seats narrower and and water down the beer, Jacobs would probably throw him his own parade.

Hey, at least the Bruins have won two cups since the Leafs won their last one -- and been to the finals 5 or 6 times since then.

Am I arguing?

Like the Leafs ownership, Jacobs and his henchman Harry Sinden (and the venal Mike O'Connell) seem more interested lately (say the last 30 years) in padding the bottom line.

O'Connell was fired a couple of weeks ago.

Ouch.

No, it hasn't been a good year for me hockey-wise (though the Rangers did give us a great regular season and my wife's hometown team, the Petes could still give us an excuse to go to Moncton).

Of course, it could be worse. I could be a Leafs fan.

I guess in the interests of accuracy I should have put " and recently the venal Mike O'Connell" but I didn't think it was necessary considering the point. Anyway, will Jeff Gorton (when not driving stock cars) be any different? I won't hold my breath.

Ouch yourself.

So with the Bruins out who are you putting the kiss of death ... I mean rooting for in the playoffs Scott?

My own personal kiss of death goes to Nashville. Love that Paul Kariya.

My dark horse pick/curse goes to Montreal. Nothing beats a hot goalie, if he stays hot for the whole second season. And there's currently no goalie hotter than Huet.

Other than that, I have to go with some obvious picks to go deep (Ottawa, Carolina, Rangers, Detroit, Calgary, and maybe Nashville).
