Thank you, Toronto!

If someone told me back in October that the Celtics would have the most embarrassing season ever and the Bruins would be up 5-2 in game one of the Eastern Conference Finals...

I mean, my goodness.

I love this team.

It's about finding that next group of core players we can win with in the next 6, 8, 10 years. Let's face it, it's hard for 20-, 21-, 22-year-olds to lead an NHL team. Look at the playoffs.

idiot fans who insist he's not elite. it's a well worn narrative among dumb Bruins fans and the greater media that he Can't Get It Done despite literally all evidence pointing to the opposite.

Ugh. The power had gone out in my neighborhood so I tromped down to a bar on Dot ave to watch the game... and they gave up the tying goal so I thought "well, there's still game 7" and by the time I was done thinking that to myself they'd lost the series.

Spring Break My Heart posted:

Are there metrics on this? Seems like a mighty big risk to go down two but I can see it maybe being worthwhile if playing with 6 men is enough of an advantage and doing nothing is likely to lose anyways.

Tuukka started off with 5 seasons of goaltending as good as (edit: almost, holy poo poo Roy and Hasek) anyone has ever been (.928 save%, 2.11 gaa) and since then has been merely good/very good (.917 save%, 2.38 gaa). And he got a really big contract, so of course people start complaining when he's not quite the second coming of Hasek.

Bruins fans were sold on him as a transformative defensive talent and he never reached that lofty height, but he's a perfectly good player.

Yes, e.g. this. A different study I read maybe four or five years ago suggested a team could gain a non-trivial amount of points (I want to say it was like 8.5, which can be the difference between playoffs or golf course) over the course of a season by pulling the goalie much earlier, though I don't have it on hand.

Thanks! Gonna see if anything from the Sloane conference has covered this. I bet there's all sorts of wrinkles depending on where faceoffs are, how quick you can get a goalie out of the net (or back into it) etc.
