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.

“The Rookie Wall.” The familiar moniker just sounds foreboding and full of peril when uttered in any professional sports setting — almost like a high hurdle or sports rite of passage every young player needs to topple before they’re truly established with their peers.

 After getting such good feedback from the first Hagg Bag (probably the only time in the history of you’ll ever come across that sentence) and regaining the will to carry on despite the fact that Felger’s mailbag has now become a bi-weekly entity going forward, I bring you “Hagg Bag II: This Time He Means Business.”

Normally a midseason report card is fraught with uncertainty, hand-wringing and a fair share of bad grades that will send fans and players alike screaming to the principal’s

Gutting and gritting their way through the final few months and playoffs of a first – or even a second – NHL season isn’t something a player can theorize or talk their way through.
