Ah yes, here we are in the wasteland of the crappiest year on record this millenium. I mean 2016 was bad with all sorts of notable talents leaping off this mortal coil (Bowie, Prince, Carrie Fisher) but 2020 takes the cake.
Yes, hockey season should be happening right now and Tuukka Rask, in a normal season, would just about now be righting his ship after a poor first three weeks. But, 2020 and the ‘Rona have screwed all that up.
So with free agency dying down after a not so hot nor heavy 2 days, everyone is trying to stoke interest in hockey content without having the obvious hockey content. Since I didn’t feel like reading any articles and I’m feeling lazy, I present you with this: Pick your fave five Bruins.
