My enjoyment of the Bruins' newest rookie coming in and averaging 2 points/ game is somewhat tempered by the fact I was about 3 years behind his dad in school.

Relax, the rookie has fewer teeth than you do, and also falls down a lot more. And - Don Cherry doesn't know who you are or where you live. You're so deep into the plus column it's ridiculous.

Don't feel bad, fatty. I'm old enough to be the kid's grandfather, maybe even great grandfather. I might have fewer teeth than he does, and I tend to fall down from time to time. The only thing that gives me comfort is that Don Cherry does not know where I live, so I can keep some of the jackets my wife refuses to let me wear.

Hey Carolina!

When attempting to tank* for a better draft pick, please don't be so obvious next time.

I mean, deliberately taking the puck from behind the net and putting it into your own goal? Too obvious!

*Since they won anyways, it seems they can't even tank properly.

Oh Cam. Cam, Cam, Cam

But this does bring up a question or two: the puck was stuck in Cam Ward's skate. Is that still a playable puck? Were the Coyotes allowed to hack at Cam's skate until the puck is dislodged? That doesn't seem safe (I mean, if we're looking out for player safety all that).

This is every 'Canes fan this season.
