Kraft on D&C: Optimistic about future

Patriots owner Robert Kraft joined Dennis & Callahan to talk about the present, and future, of the team as well as the future of the league as it heads into an uncertain labor situation. Kraft likes where his 10-2 team is now, but he is also optimistic about the future as the Pats own potentially five of the top 75 picks in next year's draft and three of the top 33 (their own, plus the Raiders first rounder and the Panthers second round pick).

 

"We are on pace for the highest rookie starts in our franchise history," Kraft said. "We have the most starts in the league by first and second-year players. Twenty of our 53 players are in their first or second year. We’ve gone from the fifth oldest starting defense in the league to the youngest one right now. I like the way our team is set up if we do a wise job of selecting players in the future we’ve positioned ourselves to hopefully be able to compete for the next...

Schefter on D&C: Bears will win

Speaking on his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show, ESPN's Adam Schefter said that he is picking the Bears in their matchup with the Patriots Sunday. It is the third time Schefter has picked against the Pats, with the other two occasions (Jets, Browns) resulting in New England losses.

 

"First and foremost, I get uneasy and squeamish overtime I pick against the Patriots because in theory, you should never pick against them. They are that good. They are that dominant. They are, in my opinion, the best team in football right now," Schefter said. "But I see them coming off that 'Monday Night Football' game where they can't play any better than that, on a short week, traveling, playing a team that's going to be fired up for this game like it's going to be their Super Bowl. I just think Chicago is going to come out and play a great defensive game.

 

"The ingredients are there for it to be a...

Garnett alley-oop sinks 76ers

Rajon Rondo fed Kevin Garnett for an alley-oop layup with 1.4 second remaining, and Garnett stole the ensuing pass to give the Celtics their ninth straight win -- a 102-101 victory over the 76ers in Philadelphia.

 

Andre Iguadola made a running layup over Paul Pierce with 6.6 seconds remaing to give the Sixers a 101-100 lead, but Doc Rivers drew up the game-winning shot in a timeout to help the Celtics improve to 18-4. Rondo finished with 19 points and 14 assists, while Ray Allen netted 23 points, including a 3-pointer with 1:04 remaining that gave the C's a one-point lead at the time.

Lucic, Bruins defeat Islanders
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins got three special teams goals (including Milan Lucic's team-leading 14th and 15th goals of the season) and Tuukka Rask picked up his second win as the Bruins defeated the Islanders, 5-2, on Thursday night at TD Garden. The Bruins had two empty-netters, with Lucic and Patrice Bergeron providing them. 

 

Brad Marchand scored his third shorthanded goal of the season in the second period when Islanders goalie Rick DiPietro took a gamble by coming far out of his net to play a puck. 

 

The Islanders got goals from Frans Nielsen and Rob Schremp, the first of which came on a shorthanded penalty shot in the second period. 

 

Michael Ryder added a goal of his own in the third period, which like Lucic's first, came on the power play. The Bruins finished the night 2-for-5 on the the power play. Lucic's first-period goal was assisted by Marc Savard, as the center picked up his first point...

Bruins make two trades
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins made a pair of minor-league trades on Thursday, sending Jeff LoVecchio and Jordan Knackstedt to the Panthers in exchange for defenseman Sean Zimmerman and a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2011 NHL Draft. They also landed forward Juraj Simek from the Lightning for Levi Nelson. 

 

Both players will report to Providence. For more on the Bruins, visit their team page at weei.com/bruins
