Boston Bruins: Last Two Weeks By The Numbers – 12/20

The Bruins appear to be on their way back to full strength with the return of some of their core players from injury and as rumors continue to swirl about them landing some big names, their play has been improving over their last couple games despite the results not being there. During the last couple of weeks, they have seen a rematch of the 2013 Cup Finals, the first goal for a rookie winger, a dominating performance in the face off circle and a milestone goal for the Little Ball of Hate despite averaging a 10th-worst 2.42 goals per game this season. This is Boston Bruins: Last Two Weeks By The Numbers.

The Bruins have certainly struggled to score goals over the last few weeks, but they are starting to get some key guys back from injury.

The Bruins have certainly struggled to score goals over the last few weeks, but they are starting to get some key guys back from injury.

1: Craig Cunningham scored his first NHL goal against the Senators on Dec. 13 in his seventh career game – a shorthanded goal that put the Bruins up, 1-0. It was the third shorty the Bruins have scored this season: David Krejci on Oct. 21 and Gregory Campbell on Oct. 25.

1: Niklas Svedberg became the first Bruins goalie to require overtime in four of his first five career wins, according to Elias. Three have come this year against Buffalo, Columbus and Minnesota as well as his first career win on Jan. 2 of last season against the Predators.

1: The Bruins have given up just one power-play goal in their last 15 games dating back to Nov. 15.

Celtics Circuit: Rajon Rondo Traded To Dallas

Rajon Rondo will no longer be the floor leader for the Boston Celtics.

Rajon Rondo will no longer be the floor leader for the Boston Celtics.

The Boston Celtics shipped out their final piece of a golden era on Thursday evening as Rajon Rondo seems to be headed to Dallas to join the Mavericks.

The deal is not yet completed, but it appears both sides are close with just the final pieces being discussed. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Celtics will send Rondo and Dwight Powell to the Mavericks for point guard Jameer Nelson, Brandan Wright, Jae Crowder, a 2015 first-round pick, and a future second-rounder.

Rondo delighted Celtics fans for the past eight-plus seasons with his precision passes. The mercurial point guard reportedly clashed with former coach Doc Rivers. He is the final member of the 2008 championship team. Rondo said that he was interested in testing free agency next summer.

The ninth-year veteran will join Dirk Nowitzki, Monta Ellis, and Chandler Parsons. Rondo can afford to take more chances on defense with Tyson Chandler roaming down low. The Mavericks already have two pick-and-roll guards in Ellis and Jose Juan Barea. Dallas is the best offensive team in the NBA, but they are currently sixth in the loaded Western Conference.

Nelson, who is 32 years old, has struggled in 23 games this season for the Mavericks. The six-foot guard averaged 7.3 points per game with just 4.1 assists. He is shooting just 37% from the field this season. The Celtics could trade Nelson before the deadline since Nelson has just a year and a half on his contract.

Wright is a unique talent with his size and athleticism. The seventh-year veteran had trouble finding a place with the Golden State Warriors early in his career, but he really came into his own for the Mavericks. The 6-foot-9-inch forward is shooting about 75% from the field through 27 games off the bench. Wright’s specialty is scoring off of pick-and-rolls, which would have helped if Rondo was still with the Celtics. Since Wright has an expiring contract at $5 million, the Celtics could flip Wright before the trading deadline in February.

Crowder brings energy on the defensive side of the ball and Brad Stevens could use Crowder to trap opponents. If Crowder can display the talent he showed at Marquette, Celtics fans will be pleased. Despite being undersized, Crowder can ignite the crowd with his athleticism.

The Celtics now have three first-round selections in 2015 and 2016. Although two of those picks in 2015 will come later in the opening round, Danny Ainge has a solid history with those higher picks. Players such as Kendrick Perkins (27th pick, 2003) and Tony Allen (25th, 2004) were part of the rebuilding process and they developed into valuable contributors during the Celtics’ title run in 2008. Also, the Celtics picked up a $12.9 million trade exception, which they have a year to use.

Even though this doesn’t look like a strong move for the Celtics, they added more assets to use in their rebuilding project. The Celtics were able to get something in return for a player who may not be with the team next year.

Dear Patriots, Enough With The Optum Field Lounge Propaganda

patriots optum field lounge

Dear Patriots/Bob Kraft,

Please stop ramming the new fancy pants Optum Field Lounge down my throat. I have already received emails and today you are pushing it on me through snail mail. I can barely afford my tickets in section 336 AKA the third ring of the Saturn as it is. Now you want me to fork over an ADDITIONAL $1500 for admission to “a climate controlled indoor lounge complete with HD screens, media walls & state of the art technology.” If I wanted all that I would STAY HOME, not sit in hours of traffic, not pay $40 to park & not shell out $15 for a frosty adult beverage.

So cut the corporate crap…

patriots optum field lounge

 

I could only imagine the FURY and BETRAYAL of the now displaced season ticket holders who have  had seats in the future home of this yuppie haven. The blue collar fans that “used to” make up the Patriots fan base can’t afford this shangri la dee da anyways. So don’t pitch this to season ticket holders, rather sell it to the people who can afford it. Oh wait, they are already eating filet mignon and drinking Cristal in Putnam club.

Why not ask the season ticket holders what they want…rather than what you think we want!

Yours truly,

Joe Gill

Romo is a Good Target for Red Sox

sergio romoWhile we find ourselves in the midst of the Winter Meetings frenzy, the Stove is currently as Hot as it has been all offseason, with no signs of cooling ahead. Now that a certain starting pitcher has left for windier pastures, it is time for the Red Sox to move forward with their off-season plan. While it is true that the team is still in desperate need of multiple quality starters, a need also exists in the bullpen for a quality late-inning guy. The Red Sox did extend Koji Uehara at the very beginning of the offseason, but he probably should not be expected to hold down the back of the bullpen on his own. Enter Sergio Romo.

There have been recent rumors that the Red Sox have, in fact, been interested in Romo this offseason (along with the Giants, Dodgers, and Yankees). This interest is merited since: 1) Romo has been very good throughout his career, and 2) the Red Sox have a need in the back of their bullpen. Romo is a good fit because he spent the first part of his career, and even parts of 2014, pitching in the eighth inning as a very valuable setup man. Since Uehara will most likely be pitching in the ninth (at least to start), it would be important to sign a reliever who has experience setting up and can move between roles as needed. His additional experience closing games (78 career Saves) over the past two-plus seasons with the Giants adds another valuable element: that Romo can slide into the closer’s role should Uehara decline or fatigue (again) in 2015.
