Selke 2016 Finalists: Joe Thornton not nominated for award

No Sharks nominated for the Selke this year. Despite playing one of the best regular seasons of an already impressive career, Joe Thornton did not receive a nomination for the Selke. The award is given each year to the best all-around forward, a description that couldn't describe Thornton's play any better if it tried. Patrice Bergeron, Anze Kopitar and Ryan Kesler all picked up nominations for the award. Bergeron is regularly a favorite for this award, as is Kopitar. While there's nothing wrong with any of the nominees per se, leaving Thornton off seems absolutely ludicrous to me. While...

Patrice Bergeron nominated for Frank J Selke Trophy again

I hope he wins! The NHL has announced that, as expected, Patrice Bergeron has been nominated for the Selke trophy for best defensive forward again. He's won the award 3 times already. The career record is 4. The other nominees were Anze Kopitar and Ryan Kesler. When's the last time Kesler beat Bergeron for some hardware? Honestly, I hope they voted him in just so we can see Zack in the Selke. Cmon, that'd be adorable.

The Bruins are on the outside, looking in. The playoffs are almost set to enter the conference semifinals.

Pressing On

Is anyone else still seeing an elephant in the Bruins' room? Overall, not a great press conference. Lots of mixed messages. — DJ Bean (@DJ_Bean) April 20, 2016 It certainly seems like Cam Neely’s seat is just as hot as Claude’s at this point. This team is going to be des-per-ate. — Pete Blackburn (@PeteBlackburn) April 20, 2016 Neely's main 3 points to improve roster: 1. Defense; 2. Right wing; 3. backup goalie. — Kevin Paul Dupont (@GlobeKPD) April 20, 2016 If the show is asking the question "should the Bruins trade Patrice Bergeron?" the answer is "stop watching...

Taking Responsibility

Patrice Bergeron holds himself and his teammates to account. It has been pretty quiet on the Bruins front today. Patrice Bergeron asserts that this season was on the players, not the coach. He addressed the final Ottawa game, the sting of the fruitless Western road trip, that Zdeno Chara is his captain, and his optimism for his young teammates coming up. Enjoy the charming picture of his family! (Google translation from French)[RDS] If the Bruins can land a solid defenseman for him, Ryan Spooner should be moved. Discuss.[CausewayCrowd] If Chris Kelly and the Bruins can agree on a...

The Bruins lost to Montreal at home. Again. 5 years ago.

Welcome back! It's time for another trip down memory lane! CBC Opening Montage Last game was no picnic and this one was little better. Chara was a last minute scratch, replaced with Shane Hnidy. Well, Hnidy played like 2 minutes. The habs won 3-1, so another 2-goal loss. It started with a very fast goal, and then a very fast second goal, and they never really looked back. Patrice Bergeron got the only goal at home in the first pair, which was nice at least. We love you, Patrice. Highlights Woof. What was said Still relevant today... People talking about firing Julien - shut up. Won't...
