Buckle up!

(bing)

Good afternoon and welcome aboard Spoked B Airlines, the official airline of the Boston Bruins' playoff hopes.

Our current final destination is Raleigh, North Carolina, home of the Carolina Hurricanes and present resting place of the #8 playoff spot. As you may have noticed we've had relatively smooth sailing during our last stopovers in Tampa Bay, Toronto, Philadelphia and Buffalo (sorry about the turbulence in Long Island) and hope to have similar weather today as we arrive in Sunrise, Florida. Of course, it may seem odd that we take these routes to get to Raleigh...especially with all the planned return routes to Boston...but unfortunately, it's the only way to reach our destination.

Fortunately for us, we were able to put in some additives to our jet fuel between stops, most notably Bochenski Blast, The Fourth Reich, and Ferencik Evidence. We also have a bottle of Koba Stew which we hope to open later.

At this time we've reached a comfortable cruising altitude of 30,000 feet and, while most pilots would allow you to unfasten your safety belts, here at SBA we're going to ask you to buckle up. We've received clearance from the Chiarelli Control Tower to open things up, so we're going to really put these new additives to the test.

So have a nice flight and, over on the right, please enjoy the ruins of Tampa Bay which we just laid waste to last night.

LOL that is awsome!

I just read via boston.com that the Bruins only have 1 million in cap space to work with. the problem though is it cannot be pro-rated. Meaning to sign another player he can make no more than 1 million dollars all season. That does not leave us much in the terms of options. This all comes from a rule involving longterm injuries like Zhamnov's.

They also mentioned that Sturm would be signed by today and that he was supposed to get back to them officially in a day (I think that was yesterday). Supposedly Chiarelli confirmed all this. We will soon see.
