Well, it seems that the Bruins have had a slight shift in organizational philosophy. After many years of turning a profit by merely making the playoffs, enough Bruins fans have spoken with there wallets by not showing up. Jeremy Jacobs may have finally gotten the message that making the playoffs isn't enough, and in order to sell tickets, he better have a team that has a legitimate shot at the Cup. I'm not convinced that he's completely changed his stripes, but this is a step in the right direction.

I love the Nylander deal and like the Gonchar deal. All things considered (i.e. what the Leafs gave up for an older Leetch) I think the Bruins have done well.

As for the Cup, I can see no clear cut lock. If the Bruins get solid goaltending, they have as good a shot as any other team. Go B's.
