PLAYERS: Greg Zanon
TEAMS: Boston Bruins

But for newly-acquired Bruins defenseman Greg Zanon, there are no worries about divided loyalties in what has become one of hockey's most heated rivalries after that contentious Cup clash.

62. New Jersey Devils at Boston Bruins. SON OF THE DEVIL, KNEEL BEFORE ZANON!

Is it wrong of me that I want Greg Zanon to step out onto the ice, grab Patrick Elias by the helmet, rip his head off and then scream into the air? If it is wrong, I don't want to be right. Look, Greg Zanon is ******* terrifying, especially if you compare him with Steve Kampfer. Kampfer is like a little kitten and trading him for Zanon is like throwing that little kitten towards...

The trade deadline has come and gone, and perhaps to the chagrin of the many readers who have spent the last few weeks proposing all sorts of bold moves to acquire virtually every star player imaginable, Peter Chiarelli took a more conservative and prudent approach. He didn't overreact to the club's recent struggles and break up a Stanley Cup-winning roster. Instead he augmented...
