Discussion in 'Boston Bruins' started by Fenway, Jun 11, 2019.
For your families.
Win it for everyone young and old because hockey is such a difficult sport to win, and someday there will be even more teams fighting for the Cup.
Win it now.
Where do I start? Perhaps at the beginning!
Win it for my Mom and Dad. Die hard Boston fans, who passed within several months of one another in 2002. They saw the 1970/1972 editions win it, but that’s before clear tv and today’s coverage. Used to go to games at the original garden with my two best friends and...my Mom!
Win it for my son, who is serving in the Army and shipped overseas after game 2....and will be watching on prehistoric media. He’s been with us every step of the way and his love for the game and this team never wanes.
Win it for Rask. No explanation needed.
Don’t need to win it for me. As I write this I realize I am blessed to be happy, healthy, part of the Bs fan base and part of this group of Bruins posters here at HF boards.
My 80 year old Dad and my two uncles in their 70’s who have been with them all their lives and win it for the 12 year old boy ( me ) and my best friend Don Smith who cried like babies when the Bruins lost in 1979 . I moved with my family to Cape Breton in 1978 ( from Boston ) while Don stayed in Massachusetts but we watch all games together ( using Facebook messenger) .
Win it for the members of this board who live and die with the team . I want everyone tomorrow night to feel like George Bailey at the end of Its a Wonderful Life .
Win it for the guys in the locker room, who kept bouncing back all playoffs, when things looked bleak.
Ah man, I’m in tears reading through these posts, it’s been an emotional few weeks and seeing so many poignant heartfelt words is absolutely beautiful.
So proud that these players represent our club. They come through on the big stage when it matters and have delivered us an incredible season with a Winter Classic Victory, Eastern Conference Championship and now just one more win to get.
Win it for Us. Win it for your teammates. Win it for your family. Win it for Boston.
Just Win x
Easy. The guy sitting next to you
I have nothing against this thought but I have to come here and admit I was judging their sick kid
Win it for the players’ kids, whose dads are on the road half the time.
Especially those (like Z’s daughter) who are old enough to understand what the Cup means.
Zdeno Chara riding the Rowdy Rooster is the ultimate dad moment
Win it for Kevan Miller, a key contributor who seems forgotten.
I know it's got to be very difficult on him, especially with the endless shenanigans the Blues are pulling.
Win it for yourselves. They might not be another time like this again. Win it for your teammates and the rest as folllows.
Win it for the greater good if hockey. Imagine what happens if the Blues win in a copy cat league. Every team will try to win a cup by taking out their opponents players.
I remember this pic after the 2013 loss. Life goes on and Big Z is so awesome.
I will have to read this again, tomorrow. @Fenway, this was just beautiful. Man...a lot to absorb here.
That pale ale I brewed on Easter Weekend when Bruins beat Toronto in game 6? I am going to name it Dirty Water. Seems fitting.
Hamiltonians, DM me and maybe I can fill a bottle for you.
Go Bruins. Oh, and this is for all my Maine/Mass/New Brunswick kin that loved hockey. I remember my Uncle Perley in Centreville tickling the piss out of me around 1971 before Saturday night hockey games. Mom's got stories of us when Bruins won in 1970. THis is for them, and for us. Boston Strong...all over the world!
And I hope my wife has some kind words for me since I had to sleep on the couch when Boston knocked Toronto out of the playoffs in April.
Big “this is our ****ing city” Papi
I think this might be polarizing, but win it for Donny Sweeney.
Got ROASTED for early moves when first a GM. Ridiculed by fans around the League — certainly HF fans around the League.
Promised he would go with youth but still be competitive. He kept that promise.
Handled the toughest role in sports, rebuilding while not being given leeway to lose in short term.
Swung hard last year at TDL only to have his gamble get ruined by a concussion. A concussion that also lost him that asset as a fit for this year’s 2nd or 3rd line or at least as trade value.
Took a gamble with TDL again this year and smoked one off the centerfield wall — and possibly turned into an in the park homer if G7 goes our way.
As far as the team goes...
His NHL coaching career looked to be over in 2004. He took a long, humbling journey back. He's a thoughtful and cool guy. He impresses me.
Also, Sweeney. He was around in 2011 but it wasn't his show. Sweeney is rock solid and seems to improve every year.
Win it for guys who never had a chance to, Normand Leveille, the Humboldt Broncos who some could have been future Bruins.
Guys that had the chance but never did fulfill their dream....Nifty, O'Reiley, Gille Gilbert, Park, Oates....
For the team and all the awesome fans from every corner of this world.
Tonight it is all or nothing.
It can be that one shot, one pass, one hit, one save who will decide the winner.
Please refs let the best team win and let that team be the Bruins.
I'm the only one in my family that follows hockey to any significant degree, so in that regard I can only say win it for me.
Plus all the others already listed above.
Win it for all the kids who became Bruins fans this year. Etch an amazing set of positive memories in their brains to enjoy the rest of their long lives as permanent Bruins fans.
Win it for yourselves.
No need for that kind of lofty words.
Separate names with a comma.
