Game Day Thread: Flames at Bruins (I Hate Dougie)

Embed from Getty Images

It’s that time of year again, when we boo Dougie Hamilton because he didn’t want to be part of the Bruins anymore. Was it Boston, the media, or any of his critics that made him leave? Did he want to leave because his brother was going to be shipped across country? Who knows? Alls I know is this: we should thank Dougie because without him going away, we wouldn’t have Charlie McAvoy. I think it’s worth it.

It’s not a direct causation mind you, but the Bruins probably wouldn’t have been in the right position to draft Charlie.

I’m glad Dougie is gone. I only hope that he follows his big brother wherever he is now, Arizona I think. For as good as Dougie is, his brother is not. So, Dougie get yourself traded to Arizona- you have a couple of weeks to make it happen!

Anyway, the Flames are in town. I don’t give one, two, or three craps about that franchise. Calgary currently sits in the third spot in the Pacific though they probably shouldn’t seeing as they have an even strength goal differential of 0; the LA Kings with one game in hand sit only 1 point behind them and have a goal differential of +26.

It’s the last game before the dreaded annual Western Canada Roadtrip. Tonight, the Bruins will honor the 1977-78 Bruins in a pregame ceremony. Bruce Cassidy seemed pleased that the guys he grew up watching are in the house today.

Even Don Cherry is here!

Anyway, Kevan Miller is still out which means the return of McGrzcelquaid. Bruce Cassidy decided to limit playing time on players the other night. Keep an eye out for benching if the Bruins continue to have some issues with

Shore? Didn’t he die like 30 years ago?
That might not be a good deal.
