    So you agree with no cap in letting Guerin go? A player who was productive but was let go purely to line JJ's pockets. It wasn't just Guerin, there was a holdout or trade almost every off season due to the player "wanting to much money"

    Glad you support Jacobs over the team succeeding.

    Can’t see anything changing for a couple generations they’re here to stay especially after they’ve developed the land the old building was built on.

    Probably unfair to not give them a shot and automatically assume they’re the same as their dad look at what happened to Chicago.

    Regardless stakes/expectations are high I think their tenants are the best owners in Boston and the other 2 aren’t shabby FSGs soccer title they’re defending is more impressive by a long long loooong way than their MLB one and Krafts teams have dominated pro sports like no other franchise ever has in a cap era. And they are inheriting possibly the best team in hockey best goalie + top 5 roster.

    I got more beef with Allison/Dafoe/Kristich cheapness and holdouts causing us to punt on seasons before they started. Pretty sure McClaren can be lumped into that. Guerin found a sucker to give him a Jagr outlier contract the mistake on our end was Lapointe.

    Luckily the Thornton trade allowed us to bottom out which ended up being the best thing ever we were good again within months and won within 5 years.

    I forgot about Kristich, arbitration award they just walked away from and got nothing.

    And Kristich did what after?

    And do you get anything out of an arbitration when you don’t like the deal?

    Of course I agree with letting Guerin go.

    You would want to sign him for $9 million over 5 years? In 2003? How about some common sense.

    Still derailed a season but that’s 3 separate years same story. No he wasn’t a star. Wasn’t he on the ice for the Caps team that elimated us with Defoe’s bff Joe Juneau and fresh out of Europe Brian bellows?

    Each of those guys holdouts killed separate seasons before they started they were all productive players in their prime we couldn’t bite the bullet and give a decent deal to. At that point in time we were cheaper than Tampa or Oakland is these days baseball. Pretty goood comparison honestly because Sinden could be counted on for some shrewd moves were he clearly beat the other GM as long as it wasn’t Sather.

    Sinden pulled someone’s pants down every year there’s no active GM as good as Sinden under a salary cap forced to spend to the cap would be.

    Savvy move by Jacobs. maybe he didnt have faith in Charlie and now the blame can be shared by 6 people if there is a bad year. You could make a game of clue over which Jacob's heir is responsible.

    Bruins fans whining about Jacobs remind me of 8 year old kids begging for ice cream and their dad saying no, then them going I HATE YOU DAD because their friend from Detroit's dad bought them the fanciest Haagen-Dazs ice cream there is, but now you're doing alright while your friend in Detroit is fat and has diabetes.

    Only if ownership % is divided equally among the six children. It is quite possible that Charlie has the largest % of the Bruins. For the team's sake I hope so, having 6 equal owners could end up being a nightmare if they can't agree on what to do.

    Fair point, but it's difficult to imagine that a plan to pass the torch likely years (if not decades) in the making wouldn't have included some forethought about a hung ownership group.

    Mmm a lot to unpack here. Does anyone have actual numbers? I ask sincerely, specifically around revenue and profits. Easy to say “just spend more” but I don’t know if we have the full picture.

    The only thing I need to address immediately is @Idunkmyoreos what kind of psychopath are you??? Everyone knows you unscrew two double stuffed, put them together to make a quadruple stuffed and drink milk after.

    I don't know, that's why I said it is quite possible. I can't believe he (JJ) would set up the ownership transfer in such a way that a family conflict might derail the franchise down the road. It would put everything he's worked for the last 45 years in jeopardy. Ditto Delaware North.

    I tend to agree and I'd be shocked if Charlie wasn't given a high controlling stake.
    Charlie was groomed for this. Cam was groomed for his roll too.

    This is one of the best days of my life. I was so happy to hear this today I actually cried. Good luck Jacobs children. I know you could not possibly be a worse owner than your predecessor. 44 years. 1 cup. Thank you Tim Thomas wherever you are. And thank you J Jacobs for ripping off loyal customers for 44 years with overpriced flat beer stale hot dogs and flat soda

    How about bruin fans stop defending an ******* that is the worst owner in Boston and was one of the worst in the NHL. Lemmings must like losing. 1 cup in his reign in Boston. Let me guess ," that's better than none".

    8 years I gave this thief my money for season tickets, now I get two free games a year from work, I wont park at the Garden, wont buy his concessions and wont buy anything from the pro shop.

    As much as I dislike Mike Felger for the joke he has become I will always respect him for calling Jacob's a thief in print (JJ really taught him a lesson, getting him taken off the Bruins so he had to cover the Patriots at the start of their super bowl runs.)

    Bruins have some truly pathetic fans nowadays, they hate tough hockey and defend Monty Burns. Sad what some have become

    No cap, of course I sign him if I'm trying to win. Maybe only make 30 million that year in profit instead of 40.

    With no cap were they a better team with or without Guerin? The correct answer is with.
