Morning Free Association: More Press Conferences

In case you missed it, the Bruins top brass held their end of the year media availability yesterday with the Jacobses, Jeremy and Charlie, and Cam Neely talking about the season that was.

For the most part, things were positive. Cam Neely praised the youth movement and their coaches for teaching them how to play in the NHL. Neely all but said that Cassidy was the king of the motivational scratch given that those who sat on the ninth floor often came back ready to make contributions in game action.

Neely also spoke about Brad Marchand and his actions, saying that Brad is a great player who needs to stop resorting to on-ice antics, that he plays better than those suggest. He also said that Brad is a good guy but you wouldn’t know it from his trolling and other behavior.

Later, off the dais, Neely was asked about the officiating in the series against Tampa. It turns out that he also had a gripe against the officials for the same three non-calls that we all hated.

Scrooge McDuck Jeremy Jacobs was also on hand to talk about the season. His comments mostly focused on paying high prices for players that need to play better and whether it was worth it. He suggested that some players get that contract and their position in the lineup and become comfortable, perhaps not earning the worth of that contract. He didn’t name names but it doesn’t take too much to guess some of the players he could be referring to.

Otherwise, Jacobs sees that the progression of building with youth from within is working well and hopes that next season has a better result, as we all do.

I was really surprised that he got exposed to the expansion draft, since we knew he could get hot like this.

Yup, he was a great fantasy team pick up last year. Less of a surprise this year
