God damnit. God fucking damnit. I would like to say good morning to everyone and it might be the only good thing I say this entire article. Before I go off on my tangent, I want to talk about the pathetic display some Bruins fans put on during the Peter Chiarelli/Season Ticket Holder press conference. I listened to some of it and read live tweets by HBAdventure and guy337 and some of the shit I read made me want to throw up my lunch. The best one of the group was:
For all I know, a seven year old asked that question because no hockey fan would ever ask a question like that. Why haven't the Bruins won a Cup yet? Are you fucking serious? Are you watching the god damn game you have season tickets for or are you just ripping them up and throwing them away? First off, why would you ever ask that question? What is your fucking thought process here? Why not call Theo Epstein and say "Oh hey Theo, why haven't you won the World Series in four years"? It's a ridiculous statement. I know that I'm going a little overboard here with my tangent, but that question really bothered me, especially the second part. Why hasn't Chiarelli made adjustments? What adjustments would you like him to make? Trades? I guess Tomas Kaberle, Chris Kelly and Rich Peverley don't count. Who do you want the Bruins to get? Brad Richards? Are you willing to part with Toronto's #1 pick, David Krejci and possibly Michael Ryder for a guy who makes about $7 million dollars and is coming off of a concussion? Sounds reasonable, right? Just because you can win the Stanley Cup in NHL 11 doesn't mean it's an easy task. Sometimes I forget how much we (fanbase) armchair GM but it's something I know I'm going to have to stop doing. You're not an NHL GM, you'll never be an NHL GM so I think it's safe to say that you should be asking an NHL GM such idiotic questions as the one above.
Someone also talked about Michael Ryder getting a contract extension. Come on man, come on. Michael Ryder? You want Michael Ryder on this team longer than his current contract? Are you on drugs, brah? The last thing this Bruins team needs is more Michael Ryder. Ryder isn't the guy we all thought he was going to be when he signed a contract here. He isn't a top six forward, he isn't a hard worker and he barely qualifies as a goal scorer. Instead, the only thing Michael Ryder is, is a floater! I nicknamed him Cloud because all he does it float out there (clever right?).
Okay, I'm done Bruins fans. I didn't mean that. Please give me another chance. If anyone asks, you were hit by a baseball.
After the jump...lets look at the last Bruins' game...
