Once upon a time the Boston Bruins had two good... nay, great goalies. Yeah we said great. Suck it.
One was older and more experienced. He had a trophy case that included a Vezina. The other was an up and coming young lad, obtained from a team so mismanaged in the past that their fans are parading through the streets after a four game winning streak.
Legend said that the two would combine to form one of, if not the greatest goalie tandems in all the land. Youth and experience were to join forces and wreak havoc in the land of the Eastern Conference.
But then one day a dark cloud formed over the land of Bostonia as fans began to create a giant something out of nothing.......
You see, during the Bruins 2009-10 adventure the older, and experienced goalie had some injury issues and was unseated at the round table by the young hungry, gentleman with a funny accent.
The town of Bostonia had levied heavy taxes and given the older goalie a $20 million dollar contract after his Vezina winning campaign as fans threatened to riot in the streets and not tend to the fields if he was not re-signed. He was a fan favorite, a town hero. A legend in the making.
But as the young goalie from the land of Tuukkamania slowly took over during a dreadful 2009-10 campaign, those same fans began to dislike their former champion. They took to the streets with pitchforks and torches, exclaiming that he was simply too big of a burden and must be cast out of town to live on his own, and to never be heard from again.
