Friday Morning Skate: 2 hours


The closest thing to bruins news we have today is that Subban's arbitration hearing is at 9am. They might sign before, they might not. He might go to the KHL. We'll see. Go UFA ASAP, P.K. A...

Thursday Morning Skate: OMG AWK


Last night Andrew W.K. tweeted at intrepid chowder bloggers Sean and I. It was great. First, this happened: This is the best day.— CorneliusHardenbergh (@HBAdventure) J...

Wednesday Morning Skate: Settling The Score


Yesterday theScore canned their features department, which is a damn shame. They'll be back somewhere, though, I'm pretty sure. No other news going on in the hockey world, pretty much. What's on...

Tuesday Morning Skate: Punk. Quarterback Punk.


Last night I went to see Point Break on the big screen. Coolidge Corner tracked down a 35mm print and it was fantastic. Gotta go back there soon. As for hockey, I dunno. Tatar signed in Detroit,...

Monday Morning Skate: Gotta go!


Over the weekend my dad asked if there was a place to look at who still needed to be re-signed, so I sent him to capgeek (as you do). 20-30 minutes later, I got this text: So, Qwader & Campbell...

Friday Morning Skate: Happy Weekend!


Good morning, Chowdaheads. Hope you're all doing well on this beautiful Friday morning. I think I am, but its too early to tell. I don't think there is any big news or anything. 364 days until I...

Thursday Morning Skate: Soccer at Fenway


Last night I went to the Liverpool vs AS Roma soccer game at Fenway Park. The field was hilariously short, the soccer was...well, a preseason game. Still fun, though. How about you guys? See any...

Wednesday Morning Skate: Dubas?


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


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

Monday Morning Skate: Monday? Already??


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


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


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


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


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



Friday Morning Skate: Finals this weekend


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


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


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


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


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!


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


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


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


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


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!


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...
