If that was the bad Jaromir Jagr, the Bruins got one hell of a deal with the Stars.

Wade Redden and Rob Flick probably are very nice people, but Wednesday was way more about who the Bruins lost than who they added. 
DJ Bean

The Bruins wanted to add a goal-scorer, and now they have it in Jaromir Jagr.
DJ Bean

Jaromir Jagr is a Bruin. Or, to put it in terms more appropriate for this season, Jaromir Jagr is a Bruin and he’s actually a Bruin and the Penguins haven’t taken him away from the Bruins.

Two days until the trade deadline and the biggest names you’re hearing aren’t exactly the biggest names.

Forget the discussion of who’s to blame between Jarome Iginla, Jay Feaster and Peter Chiarelli. Who’s to blame for what’s actually happening on the ice?
DJ Bean

Peter Chiarelli handled the Jarome Iginla trade situation the best he could. Now he has less than a week to handle trades that will actually happen even better.

Just past midnight on Wednesday night/Thursday morning, Bruins fans won the Stanley Cup. They jumped up and down, smiled from ear to ear and waited in their pajamas for commissioner-in-this-scenario Jay Feaster to bring the Cup out onto the ice and hand it over to them.

"Now that I’ve been given this opportunity to be a big part of the puzzle, as much as I’ll have pressure from you guys, you definitely put pressure on yourself to perform. It’s up to me to elevate my game and bring it to a certain standard and that’s the responsibility of being an athlete. I know what that responsibility is now.

The Bruins can only hope that March is their worst month of the season.

Claude Julien finally got two points Thursday night to end a two-game skid, but it's safe to say he also got his team’s attention.

Since when are the Bruins a nerve-wracking team to watch? Since when does a third-period lead mean a good chance of a nail-biter and a pretty good chance that they won’t come out of it with any points? 
DJ Bean
03/17/2013 - 6:37pm
Are the Bruins the best team in the Eastern Conference? They're on pace to finish first, but they've lost their only two meetings against the Penguins and haven't seen the surprising Canadiens go away.
DJ Bean

The Bruins have the pieces to be a great team -- that much can’t be debated. Yet in order to be as dominant as possible, they need the right guys going at the same time. Too often recently, they haven’t had their top line producing like a top line, and they’re going to need that line going as the games get more important late in the season heading into the playoffs.

Perhaps going from playing against the Penguins to playing against the Panthers is like taking the weight off a weighted bat.

The Bruins wrapped up the first half of their 48-game schedule in horrific fashion Tuesday, blowing a two-goal lead in the final 6:18 against the Penguins and suffering their fourth regulation loss of the season.

The two points were big – they always are in the shortened season – but what stood out on the ice Monday night in Ottawa (aside from Kaspars Daugavins attempting his fantastically unorthodox shootout move against Tuukka Rask) was the knee-on-knee collision between Chris Neil and

Last year, Tyler Seguin got two Selke votes, which is probably on par with the ridiculousness of Mariano Rivera potentially not getting voted into the Baseball H

The Bruins needed something to get their bottom six forwards going. Maybe it was a new addition to the third line (Jordan Caron), maybe it was just some grit (Shawn Thornton to set up a goal) and maybe it was just facing a Flyers team that isn’t very good this season.

Chris Kelly had no idea that the Bruins had placed Chris Bourque on waivers until he was asked about it following Boston's 4-2 win over the Maple Leafs Thursday.
DJ Bean

The April 3 trade deadline is less than a month away. The Bruins have both a very good team and over $12 million of cap space (well, the prorated number of that) to play with. If Peter Chiarelli wants to make a big move (or two), he can.

Claude Julien wanted to voice his frustrations.  That’s why, when he was asked a question about playing without Zdeno Chara Sunday night, he said this:

The Bruins have officially entered the gauntlet, their most grueling stretch of the season or whatever cliché you want to use to paint the picture of just how hectic the month of March figures to be. 
DJ Bean
03/01/2013 - 1:17am
Here's a scary thought for the NHL: The Bruins don't need to be at their best to win.  They weren’t satisfied with their performance Thursday night against the Senators. Over the course of a season, whether 82 games or a lockout edition, that’s going to happen.

Patriots fans can only hope Bill Belichick and friends return from the scouting combine with a long list of defensive back options to sift through over the next couple months.
