Boston Bruins

On the Beat: Dater says Pierre Lacroix “gambled and lost”

What team beat writers are saying this afternoon:

Playoff teams:

  • Pittsburgh could be two-sport champions if the Penguins win the Cup.  The Steel city is enjoying some great success as of late.

Teams not in the playoffs:

  • The Bruins ownership wants to get Peter Chiarellin signed to a contract extension this summer.  He has done a terrific job in Boston and with a big summer of decisions ahead of him, it’d be smart to sign him to an extension in the next few weeks.
  • There was a lot to remember from the Hurricanes’ 2008/09 season.  Nice post by Alexander.
  • Adrian Dater says that Pierre Lacroix gambled and lost on the Patrick Roy situation.  How does Tony Granato feel at this point?
  • If Ken Hitchcock is one of the coaches Darryl Sutter is interested, it shouldn’t matter because Hitchcock is happy in Columbus.  He’d actually be a great fit for Calgary but there is no reason for Columbus to let him go.
  • David Staples does a good job of clipping together newspaper articles from Pat Quinn’s final days with the Leafs.  I think Tambellini made two great hires yesterday.
  • Donald Brashear comments on reports of possible steroids deals involving the Washington Capitals.  This story was broken in the Tampa papers this morning and was included in the Morning Papers.
  • Reports out of Russia have the Habs letting go Saku Koivu and re-signing Alexei Kovalev.  Although they may be true, I really don’t believe these reports.  That would mean giving Kovalev a boatload of money and basically make the Habs “his team.”  I’m not sure that’s the best role for Kovalev in any city, never mind the pressure-filled Montreal.

The Jets and Moose remain off the ice while the Ice of Winnipeg are back on it tomorrow night here in Manitoba.

Be sure to keep it locked to for all the latest news you can use.

Tongues were wagging in south Florida at the All-Star gear worn by Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck.

The folks who made his gear are giving it away to one lucky fan.

Dinner bell is ringing.

Time to eat and peruse the latest hockey news.
