Stanley Cup pairing full of intrigue

Stanley Cup pairing full of intrigue

There is no shortage of storylines to this year’s Stanley Cup finals that begin tomorrow night in Las Vegas.The best one, of course, is that it’s in Vegas at all. The Golden Knights are the first team in any major American sport to reach its finals in its first year of existence since the St. Louis Blues in 1970, and — to the shock of everyone, even those who refuse to admit it — George McPhee’s and Gerard Gallant’s creation has been a contender since the first drop of the puck in October. The Bruins learned that the hard way when they made their visit to T-Mobile Arena back in...

A quick look at former Bruins going to the Stanley Cup Final with Vegas

A quick look at former Bruins going to the Stanley Cup Final with Vegas

This sure is a thing that’s happening. Let’s see how Boston contributed to it by players they decided they didn’t want anymore. A less-than-year old expansion team is going directly to the Stanley Cup Final in their first season as an operating franchise after beating the Kings, Sharks, and Jets in fairly quick order. That team is the Vegas Golden Knights. This is a real thing that’s happening in 2018. And there’s no one to blame but every NHL team that made a foolish moves with them, or within their line of sight to essentially set them up to dominate a weak, disparate, heavily...

What deal makes sense to keep Riley Nash in Boston?

What deal makes sense to keep Riley Nash in Boston?

Let’s use Matt Cane’s contract projections to see if there is a middle ground to be found between player and team Riley Nash had a career year in 2017-18. That’s a good thing. He is now an Unrestricted Free Agent (UFA). That’s good for him, but bad for his last employer, the Boston Bruins. Nash’s versatility and dependability made him a near invaluable member of the Black and Gold this past season. While many assumed he priced himself out of the Bruins plans after his 4 point (15g, 26a) season, that may not be so based on some new projections from Hockey Graphs editor Matt...
