    I can't remember the last time I've seen Boston get physically manhandled like that. Even at their worst they've always had players in their lineup capable of being physical but this time around they really had no answer for St-Louis' aggression. Even if they wanted to retaliate somehow, they had nothing. When's the last time Bruins got bullied lololol?

    They haven't been the "Big Bad Bruins" since Lucic cried about mean old Dale Weise. Now there's no one left who's big & bad except creaky old Chara. Bergeron is tough but not dirty, Marchand is a selective rodent, and the rest of their lineup is degrees of speed and skill.

    Heard that same clip. Hard to argue with Robinson. Also hard to stop thinking about how different our team might've been with Larry Robinson as our defensive coach. Good lord, what a lost opportunity...

    I think he would have done wonders for PK and NB.

    I’m not saying he would have. Turned Nate into a Norris guy, but I think he would have reached him a little.

    Guys like Vlasic and Burns rave about his impact.

    I think they may have been afraid of him. His legend dwarfs them all.

    It would be nice to have more of the legends involved, at least Kirk Muller is there I guess.

    NHL Draft tomorrow but the 10 AM show is focused on youth soccer.

    And now they’re playing a Moffat soccer goal call during a commercial.

    What a winning combo.

    Marinaro picks it up from 11 AM with a rant about the Montralouellettes, followed by NBA talk with Moe Conned, back to soccer -- this time an interview with Mary Walsh, who was on the women's national team and is now a pundit, followed by ... switching to a feed of the women's soccer game.

    Marinaro managed to make the whole morning mostly about soccer. Didn't see that coming. :sarcasm:

    One thing about Tony’s show is he doesn’t get budgeted many guests. So he has to free form it. And he is the least qualified for that endeavour.

    I’m still loving his recent discovery of basketball. He somehow was never exposed to Magic/Bird, the Pistons or MJ, and is now evangelical with all the zeal of a recent convert.

    Marinaro got into the Raptors big time although he's always had a weekly NBA segment with Peter Yannopoulos. Never showed the same love for baseball, even if I once saw him at the Big O taking in an Expos game. He's become a baseball hater as he sees it as a threat to his beloved soccer.

    Watching the Bruins and Blues powerplays in the finals brought home the point of a powerplay qb for me. Doesn't excuse the coaches for the Habs powerplay last season but believe a player like Krug would make a big difference.

    What a beast! great pic. BTW.

    I'll take Gallagher at ...5'9? 185 over a 6'2 200 any day. Those guys at that height perturbed me more than the taller ones when I played,seemed to be able to get down under.

    McCown’s last day at Rogers. He’ll get paid to stay home for a while. At his best, he was very good. Seemed to lose interest and be saddled with ineffective sidekicks in recent years.

    I would be interested to hear Timmins, but not being interviewed by a baloney slice.

    Good interview, recommend it when it comes up on their podcasts to anyone that missed it. Some background on the Habs recent draft.

    Didn't hear that, just a mention that the kid Norlinder broke his wrist recently which may be why they felt they could trade down and still get that player.

    Good interview. Said Caufield blew them away in interview. Too hard to trade up

    His comment too, they thought they were going to be in a position to trade back and select a defenseman and not necessarily a LD.

    Thomson rumors seem true.

    Before Timmins, Marinaro had Amanda Stein on to talk a bit about the Devils successful weekend after drafting Hughes and trading for Subban.

    Marinaro asked her about Caufield, and she was upset with herself because she knew she was coming on Montreal radio and she never asked Hughes about Caufield. She did mention that she did interview Caufield a few times heading into the draft, and she noted that he has a swagger. Tony then played her the clip of Bergevin saying the same thing about Caufield on Friday.

    So really, this kid is special on the ice and sounds special off it, too. Bergevin said he has a very endearing personality.
