    Sure those are reasons to watch but many Bruins fans have moved on from celebrating high season point totals and 2 rd playoff exits.

    How about celebrating a relatively quick retooling and massive improvement from the team?

    You can be happy with where they team is at and still want more

    Yeah, I must have forgotten how the 2010/11 team went from missing the playoffs to winning the Cup in one year.

    I mean it’s not like they built up to it in increments or anything...

    Maybe they also needed the cash because Rick Nash is going to play.

    Bruins didn't miss the playoffs before their cup year?

    Yes, I know.

    Thank you for making my point.

    I don't know I celebrated pretty hard when the Bruins beat the Leafs in Game 7 this year.

    Maybe it was the rum.

    It's good that you're excited and confident. The original post by Real linesman was a more realistic analysis of this years team though.

    It’s an opinion like any other.

    Not surprisingly, you missed the point entirely. The 2010/11 Cup team was not built in a day. They had some successes and some setbacks along the way.

    This team went from missing the playoffs, to losing in round one, to losing in round two. Hopefully, this year they can take another step forward.

    It was kinda the glass isn't only half empty, it's completely empty and in pieces from being thrown against the wall.
    It's not remotely possible to have a negative view of this team right now IMO. When the always choking Capitals and an expansion team meet in the Stanley Cup finals, how could you not think it was at least possible? This isn't baseball.

    good for him though I'd rather honesty than forcing agendas. Should he be positive for the sake of being positive? say what you think of the teams and thats that

    i like how negativity is always “being honest” and “calling it like I see it” as if only complete homers are allowed to feel good about anything

    Who would have thought the trading of a #7 defenseman could cause this place to go in the complete ****ter. Absolutely impressive.

    I don't get the negativity surrounding this team among some fans here.

    Then again, this place was giving Tampa Bay credit all summer for acquiring Erik Karlsson, so maybe it's not surprising.

    Yeah but it IS Quaider not just anyone. Adam plays with so much heart and has been on the team for quite awhile. I loved watching those facial expressions.

    From where I sit at the Garden I can say the fans near me love the guy. Also seems well liked by the B's and guys who work for the team.

    He is what many of us "not so young" fans think of when we think of one of the B's players. I "get" it but will miss him. ...sigh...

    I wish Adam the very best and will always think of him as a Bruin.

    I like McQuaid, and will always admire his style of play. As I've said before, value wise the trade was good, but I didn't like the move because I like having depth back there on defense. McQuaid is a great #7 because he is a 3rd pairing defenseman on a lot of teams. I'm just mind boggled with the amount of negativity being spewed after this one.

    At least he didn't go to Tampa. I'd still like stone for first line rw.

    Mentioned this already but it's crazy to look at the reaction in this thread and compare it to the opening night lineup thread where virtually nobody had him in the top 6.

    I'm sad to see him go, but this was exactly the time to do it and getting a 4th back is very good value for him.
