    Wow - 2 weeks in a row where Friedman managed to squeeze in a bit of Bruins news around his continuous fawning over the Leafs. :thumbu:


    13. Boston’s been linked to Coyle. If he’s not the guy, wonder if someone like Jeff Carter would fit the Bruins.

    14. They’ve also been linked to Kevin Hayes, but will have competition. Another possibility for the Ranger centre? Colorado. He’s exactly what they need.

    Id love me some Coyle. Young, competes every night and can slide up and down the lineup if need be but it seems like any addition made to this roster will just create another hole to fill.

    Tim Thomas living in Idaho, why do I picture a Fry Cry 5 type setting for Timmy? I loved Timmy and will always be grateful for his 2011 cup run but his departure always left a bad taste.

    Great interview with Ference on the last 31 Thoughts podcast which included talk about Thomas. You should listen to the whole thing, but if you aren't going to, spoiler alert to my favorite anrcdote:

    Ference said that one day Claude called a meeting with the players' leadership group. He asked the guys how he can better handle Thomas. Apparently, Claude brought him into his office to talk and Thomas just called him a communist and didn't say anything else.

    Not sure about Carter. 5 million cap hit for 3 more years... I would rather give 5 million to McCavoy and or DeBrusk.

    Not surprised at Clodes lack of a sack there. This is the same guy who cried to Kovalev and got a puck shot to his head by John Madden and didn't do anything.

    I don't mind him that much, he isn't as bad as some of the others, and is decent on the podcast. Marek is good on the podcast also and it balances some of he Leaf suckupage a bit.

    Try Andi Peteillo. She has to be the most annoying host I have ever come across.

    Would be a horrible move if you ask me. Not the type of move this team should be doing. Coyle definitely more in the right direction.
