Whats up with the Boston Bruins?

The Boston Bruins, a hockey team I grew up watching, a player named Bobby Orr who I idolized, with another handful of players I enjoyed very much to watch, like Ray Bourque, Cam Neely, Gilles Gilbert, Rick Middleton to name a few, these Boston Bruins have had it’s share of great player’s and to witness three Stanley cup championships in my lifetime is a great honor, from my favorite team.

I would be lying if I said that I wouldn’t want them to win another one, we all want to win and see our favorite players bask in the joy of victory, we the true Bruins fan have seen our share of losing years, like 39 years til they won again in 2011, which is what makes it sweet when they actually do win it all. What the Bruins do have is a competitive Management team in place and it all starts with Cam Neely, Cam was a player that the Bruins traded Barry Peterson for, sent Barry to Vancouver and Cam here to Boston, the rest is history. Cam with his toughness and good puck sense, had changed what the term power forward was and is looked at today. Cam since retiring and becoming the Bruins President, has taken this competitiveness and toughness from the ice, into his office in the way he leads this organization, the year they won the cup in 2011, had Cam’s finger prints all over this team and to this day in a few of the Bruin players today.

In 2011 when the Bruins hoisted the Lord Stanley cup high throughout the city of Boston and shared it proudly with all the fans, they were a very difficult team to play against, they didn’t have that big name goal scorer, what they did have was a whole team that could score, all four lines producing at a high level each and every game. The one thing that breeds this is Team chemistry. Even though there are still some core players left from the championship team, there are a few players missing that brought this chemistry, chemistry never shows up on the nightly game stats, it only shows up within all the players of the team and is what makes them very difficult to play against, team chemistry is a bond between the players, that makes them a family on and off the ice and having each others backs, no matter what situation that may cross their paths.

These Boston Bruins of today and with the core of players they still have since 2011, can they get back that “team chemistry”? You bet they can, but it also takes a big commitment from the Management and the coaching staff, so they can bring in the right players, who will form this bond that will ultimately give them the chemistry, to be once again a very tough team to play against from any team in which they face. You don’t necessarily need the best goal scorers, just a few that bond together and with each of their strengths, plus the strengths of the team, become a great hockey team once again. The Boston Bruins are just a few chess pieces away from regaining their championship team, forget about the drama from the Boston sports Media, as these guys really no nothing of any sport and if they don’t create the drama, then they would be out of a job. Just simply trust in Cam Neely and his team, to once again build a championship Boston Bruins hockey team, for us true Bruins fan to enjoy once again.

” Boston Bruins hockey is about being tough and competitive to play against, not the flashy give me the puck for “my” goal”

” Team chemistry comes from a bunch of players coming together and forming a bond, to play for each other and have each others backs, no matter what that may come before you”

Boston’s sports Media, should all quit and become comedians…………..

When ever I listen to those “Drama Queens” of the Boston sports Media, all I can do is laugh at everything they say, just to create a story and keep their jobs for another day.

They always ask the dumbest questions, they repeat themselves often as if they think their audience is dumber than they are, then they pick the stupidest topics to rant over, cause they think it will produce the most drama, or ratings for their show? They put so much pressure on the players to perform, that some simply fail to perform, cause they cave into the pressure.

Look at Edgar Rentaria, he played for the Red Sox and before he came to the Sox, he was a great player that won a batting title and a gold glove, but while here he did nothing, cause the sports media here nicknamed him “rent-a-wreck”, which ultimately led to his lack of performance while he was here, after leaving here, he was once again an all star player with the Atlanta Braves.

Some players thrive in the limelight, some fail in it, just look at Big Papi he can’t get enough attention for his liking, when he retires he wants to be above Teddy “ballgame” Williams, look at Tom Brady he loves to play games with the media and says things for them to run with or bite at his words, then when the media bites and runs with a story, Brady sits back and laughs at them for the drama queens they are.

Most of the sports Media studied sports journalism in college, but was never good enough to be in the top of their sport, maybe a little jealousy there? a lot of them are retired players  that are now reporting on their favorite sport, yes these guys are more credible, but at times they to bite at the words of current players, just to help create more drama for their stations in which they work and get paid to help boost their ratings.

There are some of the sports media I can stomach, but yet there are others that makes me vomit whenever they open their mouths, we won’t get into the who’s, as this might make them cry? Yet I will say that, if you think you can do better than Belichek, or even Julien, than go give the Bruins and Patriots organizations your resumes and see if you can bring championships here, to Boston with everything they deal with, on and off the field or ice.

In my lifetime I have seen a Baker’s dozen worth of championships come to this City, none being better then the three of the Bruins, as this is my favorite team and sport, my opinion of Belichek and Julien is simply “greatness”, two of the best coaches this city has seen, with Tito of the Sox being in third and doing what he did to end the curse. CURSE!!!!! you say? I say that’s for another blog, as it was only another way for the sports Media of this city to create more drama and keep their jobs for another day.

” To create drama is to create a fake reality, why not speak truths and create an actual reality”

” The sports media will create drama for us to bite at, if we don’t bite then they can’t do their jobs correctly”
