Lord Stanley Cup lamp I must by this lol
Great addition for the Rangers. That's a nice one-two scoring punch between Nash and Gaborik. My only concern if I were a Rangers fan is the team has a ton of cap space tied up between three players in Gaborik, Richards and Nash. If that trio doesn't put them over the top or if one of them gets hurt, they will have a hard time making any meaningful adjustments within the cap restraints.
That said, every team has it's faults with bad signings. The Bruins are dumb on the bottom end of the scale. There's not a guy on the team who makes less than a million. Lots of guys in the 2-3M range that are overpaid. Krecji at $5M is a joke. And of course we have the whole Tim Thomas fiasco going on. I think it's total bullshit that his $5M counts against next seasons cap even though it's his choice for not playing. Such a weird situation regarding Thomas. I can't think of any Boston sports player in recent memory who has gone from universally loved to universally hated in 10 months like Thomas has. This would be true even if he said he was going to play next season. Most people wanted to see him traded after the season was through due to his age and acting like a total asshat and being a distraction to the team publicly this past season.
The B's have the least cap space available. I heard the Bruins were trying to appeal to the NHLPA about the whole Thomas situation. I'm not sure what they'll accomplish. I'm sure they're stuck paying a homophobic crybaby to sit on his ass. I used to like Tim Thomas. I still think he's a great goaltender, but unfortunately he's proven to be a crappy person IMO. Chiarelli needs to work his contracts a little better. I understand wanting to hold on to a core group, but some guys just aren't worth the money. Oh well. Going to be an interesting season.
Amazing how things change in a year as a Boston sports fan. 1 year ago today
Bruins - cup champs, Tim Thomas a hero who gets talked about in conversations reserved for Russell, Bird, Williams, Orr, Brady etc.
Celtics - lost in the playoffs, but optimism for the upcoming season with a healthy squad and Jeff Green one more year into the system.
Red Sox - absolutely killing it and living up to the hype of "easy 100 win team" with the Gonzalez and Crawford additions
Patriots - Always optimism with Brady / Belichik at the wheels
one year later
Bruins - Thomas a distraction all season and an even bigger distraction now that the season is done, Bruins bounced early in the playoffs
Celtics - couldn't get it done and missed the finals. Good guy Ray Allen splits town to partner with the arch rival Heat. I will say it was one of the best "losing" and inspirational playoff performances of all time. This spring was a great time to be a Celtic fan. But, hopes aren't very high for next season. Team is older, Heat and Thunder are the same teams, Lakers add Howard.
Patriots - choked in the Superbowl AGAIN against a NY team. Still optimistic for the upcoming season, but they really need to get a ring now. If they don't win another Superbowl, the memory of the Pats 3 Superbowls will be equally shadowed as the team that went 18 and 1 as well as losing again when they had their shot at redemption.
Red Sox - I don't even want to talk about it. When I heard Pesky died yesterday, the first thing I thought was how sad it was he left us during the most disappointing season I can ever recall as a Red Sox fan.
