give pete a chance

i don't know if you noticed, but last spring the bruins cleaned house. i'm actually surprised rene is still singing the anthem (anyone else think he even seems to be there less). i read a blog recently lamenting the loss of knuble and rolston (again). give me a break! this is two years old now. talk about crying over split milk. would things be different if cam neely did not have a chunk of bone in is thigh..probably, can crying about it fix it? the bruins have been playing to half an arena at home all season because jacob's business model of riding bobby orr's success has finally stopped working and he cleaned house and has starting from scratch (allegedly). they say things are different over there, there is also a brand new set of rules to play by. i tend to believe things are different and we will have to take a wait and see attitude with the new regime, a regime that can do nothing about the fact that rolston is wearing the lovely green and red in minni. these current bruins, top to bottom, have a chance to revitalize this sport in this town, if we just give pete a chance and forget about cam neely and ray bourque and brian rolston. start believing in the guys who are actually bleeding and breaking for you nightly, the axelssons, the murrays, the stuarts, the sturms. these guys are now your bruins for pete sake!

I think there is definitely a new way of doing tings in the Bruins organization. Jacobs can't influence the team like he used to. Really what would be the purpose in it. He can't control the salaries because there is a cap. The team will max out or be close every year.

The only thing we have to worry about now is whether PC makes a good team. We will know that probably in 2 years time. If he isn't then we get a new GM. It is not like the old days when the team would penny pinch and we had to make due with what we had.

No kidding. I think some people out there have developed such a habit complaining about the B's management that they can't seem to give it up. I guess we need to give them a chance (to adjust).

One thing that seems pretty clear to me: PC and his people have real class. I'm sure the Kessel situation has been a difficult thing to deal with, with the wishes of his family, etc. I think they have handled it very well.
