Cassidy is too hot. 
Time to double down on a bad Idea I think.

Yeah, they might be around for a while.

Who knows, Cassidy might be the real deal...but it's still mostly CLODE's team.
Oh wait, Clode's team is full of gritty grindy goodness now.

this really makes me smile. im more than skeptical of this transition for them. when does Price and Pacioretty's money come up? theyre gonna be in trouble then.
im wondering how much of those moves were Bergevin and how much were Julien.

Brad Marchand's 70 pts is the most by a Bruin since '08/09 and they still have 15 games left.
kinds ridiculous that no one has gotten 70 points in 8 years but thats another story.

and how many were the Molson's?

The common whine out of MTL has been that the team was too soft.    Things were right in Lennie's wheelhouse.   

Does anything get better than Desharnais' spot replaced with a grinder?

Good stuff.
That's what I call bum slayin'.

Nice work by Lennie on that one.   I think schedule trends are important before asserting a goalie or team is doing well (backup goalie debates usually).   Unfortunately, there are too many exceptions to the rule, but in the aggregate, it's better to pay attention to strong vs week matchups, concentration of schedule, and home vs away. 

One of the things that I get confused by is concentration of schedule.   I need to start looking at the last two years  a little closer to see if there's a trend and how strong it is. 

In the meantime, I hope Sully hangs in there.

You've earned an e-fist bump for this one.
