Chiarelli: Vigneault's threats 'inappropriate'
By: DJ Bean

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli held an impromptu session with reporters Monday at TD Garden to express his feelings on Canucks coach Alain Vigneault's comments Sunday about B's forward Brad Marchand. The 23-year-old forward was given a game misconduct for his low-bridge hit on Vancouver defenseman Sami Salo. 

"Marchand -- and this is just my feeling -- but some day he's going to get it," Vigneault told reporters Sunday. "Some day, someone's going to say 'enough is enough' and they're going to hurt the kid because he plays to hurt players. And if the league doesn't care, somebody else will." 

Chiarelli said he found Vigneault's comments to be threatening. 

"I think we've learned our lesson over time that that's a real inappropriate comment," he said. "That's a real inappropriate comment, and it's an unprofessional comment."

Former Canucks winger Brad May infamously said...

Report: Tebow gets $250K per playoff win

Tim Tebow has a clause in his contract that promises him $250,000 for every Broncos playoff victory, according to an ESPN report from Adam Schefter.

Schefter writes that Tebow needed to play 70 percent of the Broncos' snaps during the season to initiate the escalator. Tebow played 73 percent. So, he pocketed a quarter-million for Sunday's overtime win over the Steelers and could earn a total of $1 million if the Broncos win the Super Bowl. That, of course, would first require that the Broncos knock off the Patriots on Saturday night at Gillette Stadium.

Esiason on D&C: Broncos can't stay with Pats

CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason checked in with Dennis & Callahan Monday morning for his weekly conversation, one week after predicting the Steelers would eliminate the Broncos and roll into Foxboro.

"I said that I thought it was going to be a layup for the Pittsburgh Steelers," Esiason admitted, "and here we are Monday morning trying to explain how Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos won that game.

Added Esiason: "It is a fascinating story, to say the least, how one player, Tim Tebow, he has a legion of absolutely diehard fans. I can understand why. The character of the kid is unbelievable. But coming into the game, the three previous games he looked like he was in over his head. And then the Steelers basically played into the Broncos' hands."

While the Patriots routed the Broncos last month, Esiason said Sunday's Broncos team looked different.

"Yesterday's game plan for the Denver Broncos was...

Mashup: Giant promises win over Packers

The Jets failed to make the playoffs, but New York still has a loud, cocky team making noise. After dispatching the Falcons Sunday following a few days of bad-mouthing them, the Giants are preparing to face the defending Super Bowl champion Packers in Green Bay. No problem, claims defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul.

"We're going to win," Pierre-Paul said. "A hundred percent we're going to win. … Because we're the best."

Read more about that story and others, plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Monday's Morning Mashup.

Brady on D&C: 'A challenge' facing Tebow

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady joined the Dennis & Callahan show early Monday morning to talk about the Patriots' matchup against the Broncos, following Denver's overtime victory over the Steelers in the opening round of the playoffs Sunday.

As was the case when the Patriots played the Broncos last month, Tim Tebow is grabbing most of the early headlines.

"He's a good player, and I think it's a lot for the defense to prepare for," Brady said. "I know in our preparations for him this last time, it's a challenge. It's a very different style. But they're very effective. They have a very good team. It's certainly not about one player on this team. I know a lot of people make it out to be one player on a lot of teams, but the reason why the Denver Broncos are in this position is their team as a whole. Certainly, the way that Tim played yesterday, it was just a great win all around by them.

"We've got a big challenge....
