Impact Players Sign In Boston

Boston sports fans received several early Christmas gifts lately as their professional teams have signed impact players:

Yesterday The Celtics signed Kevin Garrnett, whom I'm am told is a very tall, very good basketball player.

Also on yesterday The Red Sox traded for the greatest closer in the history of baseball in Eric Gagne (a Canadian - so he has to be good!!).

The Patriots earlier this off season signed the 2nd greatest deep threat (after Terrell Owens) in football by acquiring Randy Moss.

All these high profile impact acquisitions by Boston area teams make me turn and look at my beloved Bruins and wonder where their big signing was this off season. I personally do not think that Peter Schaefer or Manny Fernandez can even be mentioned in the same breath as Garrnett, Gagne or Moss as being immediate impact players. It seems like Santa was giving out elite athletes to Boston teams and The Bruins ended up with the lump of coal.

All that said, I do not blame the Bruins for being a little gun shy about going after a high profile player; after all they signed Chara just last off season and we all seen what an impact he made (just a reminder to everyone that he did make an impact but not in a good way).

Hey don't forget my Celtics also traded for Ray Allen. With Paul Pierce, Garnett and Allen the Celtics have one of the best 3 player threats in the NBA.

Now they just need a good bench.

eh, apples to oranges comparisons.

You must be here in MA Jimbuff, and an EEI listener to boot :-)

Celtics? Who? I haven't liked basketball since it became the "run, skip, jump and DUNK" league.

I believe you could possibly play on the C's bench. Perhaps it would be worth mailing in an application. Here I will get you going.

Dear Celtics,

Would love to meet with your human resources department to discuss present openning in your bench branch.

Warm regards,
