    :eek:

    I hope Cassidy and his staff have plans in place to counter the trend.

    I sort of knew this was the case if St Louis won another game.

    I mentioned in the ticket thread that a NKOTB concert in San Jose was a huge problem

    Can someone post stats to prove that this bs is legit? I get a strong impression from this Bruin team that extra rest will have zero impact on their performance. They’ll be just fine.

    NBCSN always takes 2 Cup Final games as it’s in the contract. The past few years they’ve been games 2 and 3. NHL wants the Cup handed out on broadcast tv so Game 4 on is on the mothership.

    NBCSN promised cable operators and satellite providers that to get a boost in the monthly rate they can charge.

    There is a chance that NBC will allow WBTS to pick up that game as they have done it in the past in Chicago and Washington.

    Long break before finals is good. Long break before round 2 is not good. Cup is coming home.

    It could be 21 days the Bruins are winning the Stanley Cup

    Team doesn’t look for excuses they look to win

    If that series goes to 7, they play the 23rd...

    So they'd only have 4 days off..

    I'd rather the time off to rest our guys...guys like Karlsson are beat to ****..and will have no time to recover if they move on...the series has to go to the 21st regardless....so MAX they have 6 days to rest..

    Much rather have twice that.

    Might take them a second to find their feet and speed in game 1, but they'll be fine. Bruins are hungry and want this. Not worried at all. Let us come in rested and hopefully some problems healed a bit.

    Any chance Miller could come back?

    Do they get 10 days off between games

    He bodies will be more healed the mindset focused

    The staff prepared for their opponent set ups, entries, player tendencies

    They have 6 regulars over 30 and guys like Grzelcyk and Pastrnak who can use the time to recover from hits or injuries

    Ten days where they are in the journey is good with me

    Even those 4 days are plenty of time. I don't like that.
    I also don't get why they don't start the series on the 25th.

    With the injuries the B's have sustained or are nursing, I would take this over limping into the playoffs. They may be rusty for a period or two but certainly not for a 7 game series. The Sharks and Blues will hopefully go 7 and they will beat the crap out of each other. The Leafs and the media will try to instill fear into Bruins fans because that is what they WANT to happen. The hatred is at an all time high in Toronto to the point of unhealthy obsession.

    I like what Cassidy said, that it is easier to shake off rust, than it is to shake off fatigue.

    They’re talking about Ottawa and Edmonton. Nothing against them (I love both teams and their fans), but c’mon...

    I agree. The Bruins will be fine.

    Bruins were 0-26 in 2011 starting down 0-2 in a series and they overcame it twice in a month

    This team ain’t Ottawa

    I’m kind of digging 10 days of rest for 37, 46, 33, 42, 63, 88, 90, 48

    This makes no sense. A team should be rewarded for a sweep vs a team that goes 7. West should get one day off and get back at it

    Bos 25 & 27
    SJ/STL 30 & 1
    Bos 3
    SJ/STL 6
    Bos 9

    I hope this long wait doesn't cause Boston to go into the first game cold...

    I'm gonna be working Saturday, so i'll miss that, but i'll be watching the rest of the series no doubt.
