I know the thought of sending Dougie Hamilton to Providence immediately has some people shaking their head. We know what this kid is projected to turn into. He was a top 10 draft pick, he showed some promise in his first few weeks offensively and he'll be a big part of the Bruins organization going forward. The reason I ask this question, however, is because it is unknown if Hamilton will take the leap needed to become an intrical part of the defense this season.
With Hamilton turning 20, he is now eligible to play in the AHL - something he could not do last year. So the question I propose to you is:
Could Dougie Hamilton benefit from a year in Providence?Add a comment

Oh Nike, you really, really fucked up. I mean, you had one job to do. All you had to do was make some hockey jerseys for the 2014 Olympics. It didn't have to be hard. It didn't have to be ground breaking. Copy the 1980 US jerseys. Tweak the 2006 Canada jerseys. Keep them simple. That's all one ever, really needs when it comes to hockey jerseys.
You really only had one job.
There's a reason why the Original Six uniforms are held in such high regard. The simpler a hockey is, the more elegance it lends itself to the eye. We like simple jerseys. This isn't college football. We don't need volt yellow, fake collars and crazy fucking patterns. It didn't have to be this way Nike, but you fucked it all up. You ruined it.
With the leak of the Team Canada jersey last night, this is shaping up to be one of the worst looking Olympics. Seriously.
After the jump, we'll look at Russia, USA and the newly leaked Canada jerseys...Add a comment
Stick tap to Daily Face-off, who has these cool little jerseys. Anyways, they put up potential line combinations for the Boston Bruins and while most are dead on, there were a few I didn't think were correct. I think that these are probably closer to what we will see in October.
Since 24/7 has been such a huge hit among fans for the NHL Winter Classic, it's not surprising more shows like this would pop up. The Bruins/NESN and whoever Alex and Ani are, are presenting Behind the B which promises to give fans "an unprecidented access into the team's locker room, executive boardroom, and player's homes." Can't wait.

Here's the trailer:
The entire NHL Playoffs.
Fantasy Hockey starting.
These are the holidays we all look forward to the most. Well, my sexy ninjas, the opening of fantasy hockey is upon us! That's right, Days of Y'Orr is once again going to run some fantasy hockey leagues!
Last year we had 3 leagues of 20 teams each going strong. That's right, there were 48 other people who were willing to put up with Justin, Jon, Pizz and I (since we're in each league) and play the shit out of fantasy hockey. It was fun, it was fair and I kicked so much ass in DOY1. So here's the deal:
- If you're a returning manager in any one of our three leagues, you get first crack at coming back. You will have 6 days from this post to reply and get in. If you don't - oh well. You can also decline ahead of time if you do not wish to come back.
- Based on how many people we in, we may open a 4th league.
The only way we will consider you is to email us. Don't reply on Facebook (and also like us if you haven't) and don't tweet to us at Twitter. We're not organized enough to deal with it all, ha.
We want active people. It makes a league so much better when everyone is playing - even if you're in last (like me in DOY3 :().Add a comment
Boston didn't want to re-sign Whitfield, a sign that they might be moving to a younger roster, and apparently no one else in the NHL wanted the career AHLer either. Whitfield signed a one year contract with Bolzano HC of the EBEL (Austrian Hockey League).
So yeah, if you're one of the three people who cared about Whitfield, then I'm sorry.Add a comment
So Gregory Campbell is having an autograph sesson next month at Sports Authority in Braintree. But he won't sign everything...
Love the line that says Campbell will not sign any photos related to his injury. Can't say that we blame him. Still an amusing line.
S/T to Garrett for this one.https://twitter.com/TwoOsinGoose_Add a comment
Man... we really thought we were passed the 911 Calls and the crying about Chara not getting suspended for hitting Pacioretty, but apparently some people can't let go of the past. Not that we should be surprised coming from a guy living in Quebec. But Dr. Pierre Harvey still has qualms:
"When I saw that picture I thought, well, he could have been dead. He was unconscious on the ice and I thought well naturally they will punish this guy," Harvey said, adding that Chara should have been suspended for 50 to 80 games.
80 games? You even hockey, bro?
"Any time you touch hockey in Canada you better watch every word you say because you're going to get a lot of people really upset," said Dr. Louis Francescutti.
Well... that's at least true.
