Doesn't seem like the Bruins are going to do anything drastic this offseason, I just hope Horton can stay healthy (big if) and a couple of the young guys (out of Caron, Hamilton, Knight, Spooner) can improve and fit in somewhere.

campbell is terrible. and paying a terrible 4th liner 2-3 times what a replacement fourth liner would get is even more terrible.

he didn't. he got out of there as soon as he was old enough to play junior. i am not surprised he didn't want to represent the big red. people who went IHS-->cornell were easily the most likely to commit suicide.

Q: Who pulls the most ladies out of the brothers?

P.K. Subban: Wow, well definitely me. I’m the oldest, I have the most experience, and I’m the best looking. I’ve been told that on numerous occasions, numerous. Now that doesn’t take anything away from my brothers, Malcolm is good looking and Jordan’s a good looking guy, too. I mean they are related to me so they get a little bit of the looks. But right now I have to say I have the most experience. I’m a veteran when it comes to that, they’re still learning. They have lots of potential. They’re like first-round picks right now in the game, they still have to develop.

I dunno, Paille's cap hit is 1.3m next year and Thornton's is 1.1m. Bruins just overpay for their 4th line, I guess.

It's just not ****ing fair.
Can we get a live cam of the opening day of FA??? If you don't have a web cam, I'll pay for it. Would be epic

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

The BBB will be allowed to sign him to the same exact deal on July 1st

"Kelly has agreed to a four-year, $12 million contract. Kelly will officially sign the contract on July 1. It is the first day he will be eligible to do so because of tagging purposes as the Bruins rid themselves of expiring contracts."
