Wednesday Morning Skate: Dubas?

38

The Toronto Maple Leafs hired an assistant GM who's a whizkid with analytics and is 28 years old. They might not be a hopeless mess in the near future. And that's just...I don't even know. Good...

Tuesday Morning Skate: Ayup

150

Running late so I don't have any topics for y'all. Talk amongst yourselves.

Monday Morning Skate: Monday? Already??

168

I don't know about y'all but I had a killer weekend. Sad it's over, really. I don't think a whole lot went on hockey-wise. What's on tap y'all?

Friday Morning Skate: End of an Era

130

Yes, folks its true: Philip Lahm is retiring from international play. It makes sense - he's not getting any younger and he just captained his country to a World Cup victory. A heck of a career for...

Thursday Morning Skate: Drying Off

152

Good morning everyone! Hope you're alright, what with the flooding and whatnot going on yesterday. Not a lot going on Bruins-wise. What's on tap y'all?

Wednesday Morning Skate: Gone Fishing

153

Its pretty much vacation time for NHL GMs, though some would argue that Chia already was. But he signed two guys that might be in the lineup next year (one much more likely than the other) so its...

Tuesday Morning Skate: Letdown

81

The afterglow of Germany winning is starting to fade and the roughriders are 1-2 and there is nothing going on hockey-wise until late September. Just...nothing. Is this what life has been like for...

Monday Morning Skate: Victory at last

66

THEY DID IT GERMANY DID IT BLESS YOU KLOSE BLESS YOU SCHWEINSTEIGER BLESS YOU LAHM BLESS YOU MUELLER BLESS THEM ALL Good morning everyone, what's on tap?

Friday Morning Skate: Finals this weekend

133

This is a little late so it'll be hurried but the world cup final is this week and it should be fun. Can't wait to see what David Pastrnak comes up with next. What's on tap, y'all?

Thursday Morning Skate: Nil Nil

181

Yesterday's world cup game was not nearly as good as the one on Tuesday. It wasn't particularly remarkable except that maybe the Dutch should have used their other goalie in penalties and an...

Wednesday Morning Skate: Dismantled

69

It's tough to really put into context how bad Brazil's 7-1 loss to Germany was. It checks all of the boxes, pretty much: At home World cup semifinal Emotional leadup Leafy meltdown But on a...

Tuesday Morning Skate: A little bit Klose now

179

Today, Miroslav Klose has the opportunity to break Ronaldo's all-time World Cup goal-scoring record. They're tied at 15 apiece, which is nuts. And who is Miroslav Klose playing? Why, its Ronaldo's...

Monday Morning Skate: Arbitration Ahoy

137

Arbitration season is upon us. Only one Bruin has filed for arbitration: Matt Bartkowski. If this goes all the way to arbitration he's probably not on the team long-term. Which would be unfortunate...

Friday Morning Skate: Happy Birthday, America!

31

In high school I often got broken up with like right before my birthday. I feel like that's America's relationship with their world cup run. Good memories but also bitterness and heartbreak. So it...

Thursday Morning Skate: It's raining, man

152

Gooood morning! I hope you're all prepped for your July 5th barbecues. Reminder: Storrow is closed at Noon today and they are doing the fireworks in Boston tonight instead of tomorrow because...

Wednesday Morning Skate: Gross

395

Losing sucks. Team showed a lot of heart. Julian Green has as many world cup goals as Wayne Rooney does now. Sigh. What's on tap, y'all?

Tuesday Morning Skate: The Banner Yet Waves

90

In 1861 Belgium (among others) invaded Mexico to install an emporer as state head. Of course, America was preoccupied with un-de-unification at the time so they were somewhat successful. However,...

Monday Morning Skate: Drafted

159

The draft was this weekend and assorted craziness ensued. On more day until the start of free agency. The bruins aren't likely to go get anyone big, but whatever. Today's World Cup games: Noon:...

Friday Morning Skate: Through!

260

THEY DID IT The USMNT are through the vaunted Group of Death. Ghana is slain. Portugal is going home. Germany is...well, still Germany. But we held them to a single goal, which is actually decent...

Thursday Morning Skate: I Believe That We Will Win

155

Good morning. It's USMNT day today! Today's games: Noon: Ghana vs Portugal Germany vs USA! USA! USA! Here is how that will shake out: 4pm: Algeria vs Russia Belgium vs Korea Should be...

Wednesday Morning Skate: Poor Chara

264

Last night Bergeron won all the awards and Rask won the vezina and we found out that the PHWA are terrible at valuing defensemen. As bad as GMs seem to be. Krug and Julien came in 4th for Calder...

Tuesday Morning Skate: And the award goes to...

230

NHL awards are tonight. Per Tuukka via Amalie Benjamin, "I'm up for the goalie award and Bergie's is up for whatever that award is." Today's world cup games: Noon: Costa Rica vs England Italy...

Monday Morning Skate: Jermaine Jones

171

Gooood morning, everyone. Both of Portugal's goals yesterday were pretty preventable. Now we need a win or draw vs. Germany on Thursday to advance. Today's world cup games: Noon: Spain vs...
