Happy Summer, Y'all!
There should be nothing worth talking hockey about in the summertime but iDigress...
Few things of note: LA Kings...Stanley Cup Champs
NHL Draft: The Bruins in the 1st Round make a Bold Statement Between the Pipes and Choose a Goalie! More in a sec*...
and the schedule is released. That's about it. I read the schedule and it includes a Cruel February with 10-out-of-13 games on the road...7-in-a-row over 2 weeks!!! Then also closing April & the season 3-out-of-4 games on the road. Since I'm a Cub Reporter...I'd love to do a fluff piece for NHL Dot Com. "Who Chooses The Schedule". Hey don't you want to know?
*More About That In a Sec...
The Bruins picked 24th out of 30 in the NHL Draft this year and chose the second goalie in the first round. Yet MALCOM SUBBAN is the little brother of a Hated Canadien.
Oui..."Monseigneur Massengil" Himself, the Montreal Canadiens'
star defenseman P.K. SUBBAN is the older brother of the Bruins new Goalie.
Isn't That Special!
Depth in Youthful Great Goaltending is something the Bruin will need to figure out one or two more Stanley Cups before this Great Era of Bruins Hockey Ends...
The Celtics, gawd bless 'em, ended their Lastest Big Ride almost to the Promised Land of the Finals.
The Bruins are anchored by their goaltending tandem, their defense then their offensive forwards.
I'll leave it to my betters to bandy about the bends of these 2011-12 Bruins...
I liked what I saw, for better or worse this past year.
Hey I tried to RTFM but I cannot find out what picks the NHL schedules!
I will get to the bottom of this!!!
