Gotta have more cowbell.
We’re a long way from free meatballs.
Leave it to the Bruins. The team returns to the NHL schedule Wednesday night in Buffalo, Boston’s first game since Feb. 8’s 7-2 thrashing of Ottawa, but rather than dreaming of Black and Gold over the thought of watching Olympians Zdeno Chara, Patrice Bergeron, and Loui Eriksson play together for the first time in nearly three weeks, a certain segment of Bruins season-ticket holders are seeing red.
The hammer dropped Tuesday in regards to what Bruins faithful can expect to shell out in season ticket funds next season, and the news came with more angst than seeing Blake Wheeler cradle the puck. Based on reports from season-ticket holders, prices will increase anywhere from 17 to 44 percent next season, likely pricing many fans out for the tickets, which currently boast a waiting list.
“To be candid, we experienced some years here where we didn’t really have all that much goodwill,” Jacobs after the lockout ended last year. “It took a long time to build up that equity, if you will, of goodwill. I feel it’s still there in this market, and I’ve actually experienced it firsthand.”

The problem with loving the Bruins is the fine print in the contract that allows Jeremy Jacobs to declare primae noctis on your paychecks. We all know the deal going in. No matter what kind of success the team has, it will always taste slightly off as long as JJ’s cutting the paychecks.
Milbury called Scott a “predator” and that he doesn’t belong in the NHL. He also demanded that coach Ron Rolston be fired for playing Scott at all.
He said the talk in Buffalo is that Rolston is “in over his head” as an NHL coach.
“I’ll tell you right now, he’s way over his head. In fact he’s drowning. It’s a bush league play by a coach that doesn’t know any better and doesn’t enough experience in the league and shouldn’t be afforded another game. Not one.”
Milburry is right….though it should be Buffalo that is getting kicked out of the league…not just Scott. They just keep giving paychecks to the Kaletta’s and Scott’s of the world and take no responsibility for the carnage they inflict. Steve Ott? Please. Yet when its Ryan Miller getting grazed by Lucic, they do everything but get Jessie Jackson involved as a crime against humanity. That franchise is a disgrace. That city is a disgrace. They deserve everything from Scott Norwood to the shitty winters.
Seriously. Traffic, parades, clutter…you get it all. They almost take up over two city blocks, which suggest that it may really be the greatest show on earth.
It also means the Bruins have to leave for two weeks so they can melt the ice. Cue the team bonding dinners and playstation tourneys in Dougie Hamilton’s room. Tis’ the season. Continue reading
I guess the good news for Tyler and the Dallas Stars is that Steers generally don’t buy season ticket packages, and most B’s fans will tell you that all “queers” root for the Canadiens.
All kidding aside, the NHL is ahead of the curve in actively striving to move itself out from under the cloud of homophobia that shadows professional sports. Sadly, this is this is just another program that Seguin hasn’t seemed to include in his schedule of priorities.
