Why Trading For Keith Yandle Would Be An Excellent Idea

Pro Hockey Talk reported this morning that Keith Yandle is potentially available via trade and immediate I had a raging cactus in my pants. Unlike the rumors for Rick Nash, which I believe would be a ******* stupid move on the part of the Bruins, Yandle would bring some much needed upgrade to an already good defensive group. Now let me preface this by saying that I'm a big Yandle...

The Norris Trophy Is Now A Sham

Nice shirt Karlsson, you fruit. The NHL "awarded" Erik Karlsson with the Norris Trophy last night and proved to the world that the trophy, much like the people who vote on said trophy, is nothing more than a joke. Now, I know I'm probably going to get a lot of hate for that statement, but I completely stand by it. Erik Karlsson is not a Norris Trophy worthy candidate...

Dear NHL: Just Stop It With This Awards Show

The NHL Awards Show is like a legal abortion that you can't look away from. Unfortunately I watched that piece of **** show every year and every year I write the same ******* thing because it never gets better. I'm not sure why the NHL subjects itself to such ridicule but putting on this award show, but it needs to stop. Everything about it is wrong. The hosts suck. The...

Why Signing Jaromir Jagr Is A Terrible Idea

So if you haven't read Matt Kalman's post over at CBSBoston.com yet, do so before venturing on. A lot of what I'm going to say is going to be a reflection of that piece. Now, don't get this misconstrued in any way. Days of Y'Orr loves Kalman. We love his snarky attitude on Twitter and we think he's a damn good writer, but we don't agree that Jagr would...

Milan Lucic: Busting goalies and trades in a single plow

Hey remember that time when Milan Lucic went to play the puck and Ryan Miller had a brainfart and decided to try to play the puck as well and well.. this happened?And then after the game Ryan Miller called Milan Lucic a "piece of ****." Then after that giant circus reports came out that Miller had a concussion only for later reports -- after Lucic was exonerated of all...

One Year Ago Today...

At this time last year I was sitting in the same seat that I'm sitting in now. Instead of wearing a black t-shirt, I was wearing my Tuukka Rask Winter Classic jersey. Instead of wearing my 2011 Stanley Cup Champions hat that I think I've worn for 365 days straight, I wore a black Bruins hat. Instead of a neatly trimmed goatee, I had a mammoth beard the color of the sun. Instead...

Lavoie's 'Kelly contract rejected' tweet all smoke

File under: WTF?Renaud Lavoie of RDS is reporting Chris Kelly's contract has being rejected by the NHL. NHL reject Bruins Chris Kelly 4 years / 12 million contract. Cap issues for the Bruins right now. — Renaud P Lavoie (@RenLavoieRDS) June 14, 2012 This makes no ******* sense since Chiarelli said the Bruins and Kelly have just agreed to the new contract in principle and...

Does the Bruins Philosophy Work For You?

The question is a simple one in theory, but the more you think about it, the more complex it becomes: Does the Boston Bruins philosophy work for you? Think about that for a moment. Take away the 2011 Stanley Cup Championship. Take away the playoff exit to Carolina, Philadelphia and Washington. Don't let emotions get in the way of your critical thinking. Erase any emotional and...

Neil deGrasse Tyson might be on to something...

Saw this tweet from astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. Yes, I follow scientists on Twitter. Don't ******* judge me. Congrats to the LAKings' NHL title.

Congratulations to the L.A Kings

It's no secret that once the Bruins were eliminated, most of DOY were pulling for the Kings to be the ones that we needed to forfeit the Cup to.  Be sure to visit The Royal Half throughout the offseason, I'm sure there will be lots of good content...and gloating :(Congratulations guys, if it couldn't be us, I'm glad it was you.

Bruins re-sign Chris Kelly, Gregory Campbell

Per TSN, the Boston Bruins have re-signed Merlot Line centerman Gregory Campbell and PK extraordinaire Chris Kelly to multi-year deals.Kelly's deal is for four years, $12 million while Campbell has a three-year deal worth $4.8 million.We love Chris Kelly but this still is a bit of an overpayment, but not as bad as we feared. Four years seems about a year too long, too. He had...

Thomas: Sitting out for 'friends, family, faith,' plus a free endorsement plug

Well, it's official.Tim Thomas won't be playing for the Boston Bruins for the 2012-2013 season. Here's his official word on the matter from his Facebook page:Would've been a decent update if it wasn't for the fact that he had to ruin it by throwing in an Evo Ultra Fit endorsement at the end.At least he's concentrating on the Three Fs and not the Three Ks,...

Thomas: Hockey's not important because the economy

This **** just gets better and better. After Chiarelli confirming Timmy might not return to the Bruins next season due to either family issues or fatigue, Timmy decided to lay it all out there with these two facebook status updates.*Sigh* Timmy's a master at turning a PR disaster into a PR ************.Sure, the economy is more important than hockey but if that's the reason...

Chiarelli working under assumption Bruins will be Timmy-less next season

So much for a dull off-season. Overshadowing the signing of Chris "Don't call me Ray" Bourque and re-signed of Pie Face was the news that Tim Thomas may take the 2012-2013 season off. And today, while talking about the Bourque/Paille contracts, Chiarelli confirmed those reports and is working under the assumption that the Bruins will be Timmy-less next season.From BostonBruins...

10 Things Tim Thomas Is Going To Do Instead Of Play Hockey

If you've missed all the fun stuff, Tim Thomas is talking about taking next year off. There's a few theories out there as to why this is happening. Some people think it's Thomas' way of making his own "No Trade Clause" since his will be up in July. Who would want to trade for a goalie, still have to take the $5M cap hit and have him sit out? No one. And...

Paille, Bourque Get Contract Extensions

Photo by Colleen KeenanWell it looks like Peter has been a busy bee today. Although the Bruins have not officially announced these deals yet, it seems as though both Danny Paille and Chris "I'm Not Ray" Bourque have received contract extensions. Paille's deal is a 3 year extension for $1.3M per year. Not a bad deal for Paille, considering he made 1.075M last season...

What the **** is going on?

Today was one weird ******* day for Tim Thomas stories. First it started with a story from Haggs about Thomas moving his family to Colorado mid-season. We've also heard this tale but he did it earlier in the year. No ******* clue. Haggs thinks it's suspect for someone to move though.But Thomas’ future with the Bruins started to get a little cloudy when the White House brouhaha...

So far he hasn't tweeted to fans asking them buy some crummy t-shirt, so his start on twitter is already better than Marchand's. Apparently he's getting more ink done.
