    This could work out well for both teams/players.

    I’m sure they’ll make it a better version, but I love the Acela. The cost is tough to swallow sometimes but it’s certainly not the worst way to travel. I just wish there were easier train options Boston to Orlando

    Maybe not full blown bounce back but he should definitely improve. There’s way too much skill there

    They've been talking about putting on in Orlando for years. A Tampa/Orlando/Miami speed train.

    I think you’d have to switch in DC, and the layover can be bad. Costs double what a plane ticket would be too

    Ive had very good luck flying into Sarasota or Punta Gorda and have no interest in driving all that way, train would be an interesting alternative

    Why not fly? There are a couple of airlines that often have tickets one way from Boston to Orlando
    or West Palm/Fort Lauderdale for $50 (sometimes less). I've flown one way from Niagara Falls NY
    to Fort Lauderdale for as little as $26. (....and no....it wasn't in 1968) :laugh:

    Iginla inspired Lucic to waive no-movement clause to join Flames

    "Jarome and I got to know each other really well the year we played together in Boston," Lucic said. "We were linemates, we shared a lot of stories, went out to dinner together a lot. … I like to think he knows me pretty well and that's why he took time out of his day to give me a call and help me with my decision. And he did help me make up my mind."

    I miss Looch. I know he wouldn't really help Boston out if he was on the team right now, but I miss him as a Bruin. I hope he comes out and plays well again this season.

    You really would have wanted to take on a worse player on a worse contract?

    Not that it’s my job to decide who fights who, but IMO Z should have taken on Scott around that time.

    McQuaid, held his own. IIRC....definitely lost, but it was a decent showing, no?

    James Neal seems to bring success everywhere he goes. What I'm wondering is why he has been on five teams in five years now?

    Penguins - won the cup
    Preds - went to the finals
    Knights - went to the finals
    Flames - Top seed in the west
    Now Edmonton, where he may help McDavid turn it around

    Part of it can be explained by his contract status and the expansion draft, but you'd think a guy with that much success would find a way to stay around somewhere. Maybe he's not a good clubhouse guy? Maybe he likes being a mercenary?

    Being Sentimental doesn’t win hockey games or improve hockey teams

    Lucic is the worse player and he has a worse contract. I will always love the guy but no thx

    I know the game has passed him by but man, this was the quintessential Bruin if there ever was one. There were so many moments when Lucic had me going , **** ya. I'm rutting for him all the way or at least until they get to Boston.
