  • It is the failure to take care of the small details that is adding up to losses for the Bruins. Everyone is underperforming. Julien's do-si-do on what putting Matt Fraser on waivers means is... interesting.  [TheBostonGlobe]
  • Although part of a coach's job is to motivate, Claude Julien is not entirely responsible for the Bruins' malaise.  [WEEI]

  • Not to get too far ahead, Lucic's future with the Bruins will be one tought decision for management. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • If you can bear it and are interested, here' s a GIF summary of the loss to the Blue Jackets on Saturday. []

  • Here. Read this and cheer up. It is not too late for the Bruins. [TooManyMenOnTheSite]

  • In order to continue growing interest in the game, what can NHL teams do to engage fans? What new fan bases are being targeted? [TheHockeyNews]
  • Here's one event that has become a bit... gimmicky. [PuckDrunkLove]
  • Did you see this odd penalty assessed to Ryan Carter? You may never see it again. [TheHockeyNews]
