About Joe Haggerty
Joe Haggerty has covered the Boston Bruins and the NHL for the Woburn Daily Times Chronicle over the last six seasons and does actually remember the last time the Black and Gold were favored in a playoff series. Haggerty grew up in a hockey family, but the closest he came to playing ice hockey was enrolling in an ice skating class. Haggs is old enough to remember when TV guys like Mike Milbury, Rick Middleton and Andy Brickley skated for the B’s, but still young enough to think that Milan Lucic could be the next Big Hockey Thing in Boston.

Aaron Ward was very rarely at a loss for words during his two-plus years with the Boston Bruins, but the verbose blueliner had the sound of someone who had just felt the rug being pulled out from under him on Friday afternoon.

Brad Penny was remarkably consistent while putting together a solid half season body of work in Boston prior to the All-Star break, and headed into Saturday’s start with a stretch of six straight outings during which he’d allowed three runs or less.

Does a hockey team have a fatal flaw if its front office brain trust refuses to acknowledge it? Amid an economy that’s dropping faster than Wily E. Coyote over a desert cliff, that seems to be the question of summer for a Bruins team poised to sweep through a critical period of free agency and roster-building.

Even weeks after the season came to a surprising, premature, resounding thud in the overtime of Game 7 against the Carolina Hurricanes -- a defeat that had both GM and head coach lamenting the better team didn’t win the series -- the ending is still a bitter pill for those associated with the Bruins.
