Bruins GM sees many similarities with Sabres

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli held a conference call with the media on Monday morning and discussed a variety of issues concerning the team and the first-round matchup of the Stanley Cup playoffs against the Sabres. Chiarelli said that he admires the Buffalo organization and sees some distinct similarities in how each of the franchises were built.

 

"I have admired the Buffalo organization. The way that they have built the team, the way that they stress bringing their players through the system, getting those players in the lineup. I admire the coach and the way that he has changed through the years, I think he is the longest tenured coach," Chiarelli said. "They have some good principles there and our assistant GM, Jim Benning, is from there, they’ve got very good principles there. It is not a coincidence that we are facing each other because there are some good people who have run through there."

R. Allen on D&H: Fans' booing 'disappointing'

Celtics guard Ray Allen was a guest of the Dale & Holley show Monday morning and addressed Friday night's debacle, when the team was booed by TD Garden fans during an embarrassing loss to the Wizards. "It's disappointing anytime your home fans boo," Allen said. "Obviously, nobody on the team wants to lay an egg out there on the floor." Added Allen: "The one thing I would say is it's so much easier for us when the fans encourage us. ... Booing's hard [to take], but at the end of the day, we have to go out and do our job."

 

As for his personal feelings about when the team goes through rough stretches, Allen said: "I never get discouraged. You can always get the next play, make the next play better."

 

Allen said the rumors at the trade deadline did not affect him or the team's play. "Nobody talked about it," Allen said. "Once we were in the locker room,...

Bruins have 60.8% chance for 1st or 2nd pick

The NHL Draft Lottery will be held on Tuesday at 8 p.m. The Bruins have a 60.8 percent chance of landing either the first or second pick by virtue of owning the Toronto Maple Leafs' first-round pick as compensation for trading forward Phil Kessel last summer. Toronto finished with the second-worst record in the league with 74 points ahead of only Edmonton (62 points). The Bruins have an 18.8 percent chance of landing the first overall pick with a 60.8 weighted mean of landing one of the first two picks. Per the lottery's rules, the lowest selection the Bruins can have would be the third overall pick.

Report: Jets' Holmes suspended

New Jets' wide receiver Santonio Holmes will be suspended for the first four games of the 2010 season for violating the league's substance abuse policy, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Holmes was acquired by the Jets from the Steelers late Sunday night for a fifth-round pick in the 2010 draft, and has faced a myriad of legal troubles over the years — he was arrested for possession of marijuana in 2008 and was involved in a domestic dispute in 2006.
