Boston Sports Then & Now:
Tyler Seguin must have been CLAIRVOYANT, he knew back in 2011 that Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs was going to SCREW him (and other Bruins) over by NOT HONORING his pre-lockout contract.
How can you believe in a boss that talks out BOTH sides of his mouth?
I wonder how the players will treat Jacobs after the NHL Lockout ends…..probably like the relative you REALLY HATE, but have to be cordial to.
END THE LOCKOUT!

Boston Bruins center Marc Savard hasn’t played an NHL game since January of 2011 due to his ongoing problems with concussions and it appears as if he is planning for his future off the ice. Savard said on his Twitter page, @MSavvy91, that he would like to coach junior league hockey once he finally hangs [...]
How stereotypical of me. Anywho, one of my fabulous Twitter followers posted this (even though she's a Habs fan). Mark Recchi was inducted into the Hall of Fame! Oh wait, hold on, it's the National Italian-American sports Hall of Fame. Whatever, Recchi deserves it because Recchi is a ******* boss.
A real Italian-American BAWSS!

Did Alexandre Burrows bite Patrice Bergeron during Game 1 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Final? The referees then said no, but the Bruins — and the team’s fans — knew better.
So when the B’s and Canucks took the ice for Game 2, after Boston suffered a last-second defeat to Vancouver in the opening game, it quickly became clear that these two teams did not like each other. That...
Not sure how we've never seen this before but the headline says it all.
Amazing. This is kinda how we sound every morning we wake up and there's no new CBA in place.
Also, video is still kinda relevant even after all these years. Earlier today Joe Haggerty wrote a column ***** slapping Jacobs for bullying teams into prolonging the lockout.
Bobby Carpenter may not have quite lived up to the potential that landed him on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 1981, but he did put together a serviceable 21-year career that included four seasons with the Boston Bruins.
He also raised his daughter, Alex Carpenter, to be one heck of a hockey player, herself. Ranked as one of the top women’s hockey players in the country, the...
It’s probably not the best time to talk about the NHL and money, but ignoring Forbes’ latest report won’t lift the lockout.
According to Forbes, the most-valuable NHL franchise, the Toronto Maple Leafs, are the first NHL team worth $1 billion, while the Boston Bruins ($348 million) are the fifth-most valuable NHL franchise.
The New York Rangers ($750 million) are second-most...

Interesting stuff on the Internet. Usually the cry from people who don't know any better about the lockout is this:
"THIS IS ALL GARY BETTMAN'S FAULT,"
While that is probably true, the Internet has turned it's lazers on Boston Bruins owners Jeremy Jacobs.
This article lays it out pretty clear:

from Ed Tait of the Winnipeg Free Press,
The Winnipeg Jets and the National Hockey League are denying a report out of Boston that suggests Bruins’ owner Jeremy Jacobs reprimanded a Jets’ representative at a recent NHL Board of Governors meeting....
The story said Jacobs ‘answered by reprimanding the Winnipeg representative as one of the "new kids on the block...
Twitter is abuzz right now with Jeremy Jacobs bashing and it is fabulous. If tweets were throwing knives, Jacobs would be sliced, diced and cut into a fine mash. He's getting CRUSHED and rightfully so. The guy is a total asshole. He's currently the President of the NHL Board of Governors, which basically means he's running the lockout while people are too busy blaming...
from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
So if you’re the PA, what do you do here?
On the one hand, players have long ago and predictably tired of Bettman -- name-calling and all -- so the opportunity to see him removed from the bargaining room seems like an offer too good to resist.
On the flip side, some people were quick to argue on Twitter Thursday night that the NHL...
