Camp Observations: If you’re a fan of all-world offense, dazzling dangles and pinpoint shooting accuracy enough to make Navy Seal snipers jealous, the player to watch at Boston Bruins development camp this July was none other than Ryan Spooner. The supremely skilled forward was extremely impressive during camp week as his extraordinary arsenal of offense was on full display. His uncanny on-ice vision and deceptive speed remind me a lot of a younger Marc Savard.
Future: Through four years of experience at the junior hockey level, Spooner has spent time with three Ontario Hockey League franchises; the Peterborough Petes, the Kingston Frontenacs and the Sarnia Sting. Over that time, the Ottawa, Ontario native overcame injuri...

The Bruins have won just one Stanley Cup in the last 40 years. With that championship coming just over 13 months ago, it shouldn't come as a surprise that the club continues to try to keep as many key components of that title squad as it can. After locking up free agents Chris Kelly, Gregory Campbell and Daniel Paille earlier this summer, the Bruins signed coach Claude Julien...
After Chick-Fil-A's owner came out publicly against gay marriage, it has been a part of a PR nightmare. They are losing endorsement deals (The Muppets) and they are now persona non grata in the city of Boston. But now they have a big name in its corner.
Boston Bruin goaltender Tim Thomas took to Facebook to express his support of Chick-Fil-A.
His post said:
I stand with Chick...

He has made note of his improved golf game and his fiancee. That said, the working assumption along Causeway Street is that Savard, who turned 35 on July 17, isn’t on the verge of a hockey...
Liverpool FC is moving on to Baltimore to take on Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday before heading back across the Atlantic -- but not before wrapping up the Bruins-Liverpool Shootout. When last we left the clash, Shawn Thornton and Martin Skrtel were up 3-2 on Rich Peverley and Joe Cole heading into the fourth and final round. What was the outcome at Liverpool's training center...
We rarely do serious posts here at Days of Y'Orr. It obviously isn't our style. Quite frankly we're not even remotely good at being serious. Not on this blog and certainly not in our day to day lives. We take hockey so obnoxiously seriously that we had to form a blog to do ridiculous photoshops and needlessly troll opposing fan bases just to take the edge...
