LATEST STORIES FROM DAYS OF Y'ORR

Torey Krug and Reilly Smith: Their Situation Explained.

Redditor/Bruins fan Crazy Canucklehead posted this on the Bruins subreddit the other day and I felt it was to good to not share. With his permission (right NESN?!), here is his post, uncut. Smith and Krug are interesting cases. They’re considered RFA’s, but don’t have any of the benefits that RFA’s have (No arbitration or the ability to sign offer sheets). It all comes down...

Loui Eriksson Is Probably Your First Line RW. And That’s OK.

Are you still reading this? Good, you made it past the title without shutting down your browser, ripping your computer off your desk, throwing it in a dumpster, and then setting said dumpster ablaze. I’m here to tell you why it’s a good thing that Loui Eriksson is going to see a whole lot more ice time this year. Listen, nobody in their right mind would tell you that Loui Eriksson...

Peter and Chris: A Love Story

In high school, I had a copy of Clerks on VHS. I loved that ******* movie. I watched it pretty much every night before I fell asleep. Subconsciously, I think it might be why I love Patrice Bergeron so much. The point is, as technology kept advancing, I was still clutching onto this outdated format, going so far as to buying a new VCR just so I could keep watching a movie that in...

In Defense of Jordan Caron

Okay, I am wearing my flame retardant clothes today because this is going to be a subject that is so sore you’d think it was hanging off of Tyler Seguin’s upper lip. Renaud Lavoie from RDS tweeted this out today: Bruins signed Jordan Caron. 1 year at $600 000. One way contract. #tvasports — Renaud Lavoie (@renlavoietva) July 16, 2014 And it caused Bruins fans to line up at...

David Pastrnak Scouting Report

Big up to AlfredosSauce on the Bruins subreddit for showing me this: OHL Prospect Review 10. Belleville Bulls – David Pastrnak – Forward The Bulls opted to take Pastrnak, a Czech forward (playing in Sweden) who the Bruins took 25th overall at the 2014 NHL draft. The stocky winger had success at the U-18′s and the U-20′s this year and appears to be a favourite among scouts...

In Defense of Matt Bartkowski

Let’s talk about Matt Bartkowski, shall we? During the 2012-2013 year, Matt Bartkowski played pretty well given the small sample size. Given the 11 games he played, Bartkowski posted a couple of assists, got about 14 minutes of ice time a game with most of it at even strength. It was a good jumping off point in the development of a 25 year old.  In 2013-2014, thanks to the Dennis...

Milan Lucic: Fightin’ Round the World.

Milan Lucic is no stranger to fighting. Or making idle threats in a handshake line. Or screaming things drunkenly outside of a Starbucks. Or being talked to the police because of some drunken bros in Vancouver. Here’s to you Milan!

DOY Bag Skate. Like A Mailbag But With More Punishment

Ah summer time. Nothing is happening in Boston right now w/ the black and gold unless you count Matt Bartkowski agreeing to a new contract and announcing a new practice facility as something. Okay, let me rephrase that. Nothing exciting is happening. So we decided to try our hand at a mailbag of sorts where we will answer reader questions pertaining to the Bruins. If this is a popular...

Tuukka Rask Wants You To Choose His New Gear

Much like last year, Tuukka Rask wants you to choose his new pads or the upcoming season. You can do this by checking out the Vaughn Facebook page and voting in their post.   Basically choose C because goalie pads these days are so ******* boring. Big up to InGoal Magazine and Boston Sports then and Now for bringing this to our attention.

RIP Ristuccia Arena. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The Bruins have officially announced that they will be building a new practice facility in the Allston/Brighton area. This announcement means that the Bruins will be leaving Ristuccia Arena, where they’ve practiced since 1987-88. The construction for the new practice facility should be finished in the fall of 2016. Seriously, this is offseason news. Is it hockey time yet?

Matt Bartkowski Heading To Arbitration

Mick Colageo of Rink Rap wrote about Matt Bartkowski’s upcoming arbitration hearing: The rules are basically that the player and team can negotiate right up in time of the scheduled hearing (which would fall between July 20 and Aug. 6), so most cases are avoided at the doorway to the hearing. It avoids all the nasty insults that hurt feelings and erode bargaining power on both...

Farewell Chocobear. Our favorite Jarome Iginla Photoshops.

Well, I guess it is time for the tribute I never wanted to do. On July 1st, Jarome Iginla signed a 3 year, $16M contract with the Colorado Avalanche – ending his tenure with the Boston Bruins. ****, lets get it over with.

“Hi I’m Chad Johnson” Tribute: Our Favorite Johnson Photoshops

It has become a tradition around here that when a player is not re-signed or is traded in the offseason we have a little photoshop vigil in their honor to say thank you. Honestly, I never thought “Hi, I’m Chad Johnson” would take off, but here we are. Who knew a throw away line where we inadvertently trash another blog would’ve been so hot this season. So with that, we say...

Marc Savard, LTIR and the Salary Cap: What It All Means.

I know Savard’s LTIR status is brought up a lot, so here we go. Before Free Agency starts in about 45 minutes, lets talk about Savard’s LTIR money. Teams who have LTIR candidates (Boston, Philly) DO NOT get IR cap relief in the summer, but those teams are given a 10% overage allowance to spend on top of the cap limit. Once Savard qualifies for LTIR, the Bruins can designate him...

A Look At The Bruins 2014 Entry Draft Picks

The Bruins didn’t make any trades. The Bruins have no cap space. The off-season looks bleak, but never say never…right? RIGHT?! Meh, this isn’t about the Bruins cap structure, this is about the NHL Entry Draft. The Bruins did pretty well over the weekend, especially with a steal. #25 RW David Pastrnak Chip did his homework on Pastrnak – you can read it here. Pastrnak has...

NHL Draft 2014: Bruins…win?

Meet the new boss.  Same as the old boss.  But at least we drafted the foreign exchange student from ‘Can’t Hardly Wait’!  You remember him, right?  The one who is taught to ask everyone to touch his penis??  Look at the headshot, and then look at the GIF.  Go ahead…tell me I’m wrong.     The first round of the NHL Entry Draft has come and gone.  And, like most...

Why Your Expectations Should Be Low This Offseason

This is more rant than anything. You’ll probably hate it. Enjoy.  I think there are some ridiculous expectations of the Bruins this off-season. You’ve already heard people calling radio shows, writing blogs, tweeting that the Bruins need to make a huge move. “Ya the Broons need tah sign Tomas Vanek.” “Tha Broons should go aftah Matt Molson.” “Broons need a scorrah...

Bergeron, Tuukka Apply To Waste Management, Clean Up At NHL Awards

Seriously, this is Patrice Bergeron’s league – he’s just nice enough to allow everyone else to play in it. Bergeron cleaned up last night, taking home two trophies and also left as the NHL 15 cover person. After the completely unnecessary and over-the-top ******** cover voting process that annoyed people who will actually play the game, Bergeron was crowned EA’s spokesperson...

Bruins: Days of Future Future, pt. 4

After focusing on talented offensive defenseman Anthony Deangelo last time, we decided to move the search back up front.  DOY didn’t travel far, either, settling on Deangelo’s talented and equally enigmatic teammate, Nikolai Goldobin.     Nikolai Goldobin, RW 5’11”, 180 lbs Sarnia, OHL ISS Ranking: 26   Goldobin’s profile matches that of the other prospects whom the...

‘Good-bye, I’m Chad Johnson’: Bruins sign Niklas Svedberg to a one-year, one-way contract

The Chad “Hi I’m Chad Johnson” Johnson era has ended. The Boston Bruins have announced that they’ve signed Niklas Svedberg to a one-year, one way contract. In short, it means he’ll be Tuukka Rask’s backup next season and Johnson is hitting the unemployment line. Bruins announce that they've signed Niklas Svedberg to a one-year, one-way contract for $600,000. — Amalie...

Here’s the TD Garden Renovation’s super boring infographic

If you haven’t heard, the Boston Garden is getting renovated this summer and TD Garden social media team decided to present us with what might be the most boring infographic of all time. Ok, here it is. HASHING MARKS> ZOMG! Also, what an awful Photoshop job. That’s bad even by our standards. Basically, your season tickets got jacked so the floor could look like a hockey puck.
