Well in just 24 hours, it has gone from bad to worse for the Boston Bruins. They came out uninspired and downright horrid falling to the bottom dwelling Carolina Hurricanes, 2-1 in a shootout.
Will Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli make a trade? Probably not.
The fans have taken out their frustrations by using their creativity to produce these Peter Chiarelli MEME’s.

Safe To say that Bruins fans have lost their friggin’ minds (like Cam Neely) as this team has gone from elite to mediocre (and that’s being nice) in a matter of 8 months. All GM Peter Chiarelli has done is subtract from the roster that was the best in the regular season last year. He gave everyone on the team 25 years deals, gave everyone including the TD Garden janitor a no trade clause and traded a top four defensemen which was a “core guy” for a lifetime’s supply of turtle wax from the now playoff bound N.Y. Islanders. So the U.S.S. Boston Bruins has been taking on water and Cap’n Pete is holding on to the wheel steering towards a wicked big friggin’ iceberg.
Pete….we are still waiting…..and waiting….and waiting for that trade!
So the folks at Big Bad Bruins, BST&N & Dirty Water Tees figured we might as well kill some time and vent some frustrations by getting YOUR creative juices flowing.
We want you to use your anger for something good like making a fantastic Peter Chiarelli MEME!
Frustration. Disappointment. Downright Anger.
Team President Cam Neely encapsulates how every Bruins fan feels right now after yet another unsettling loss, this time to the Ottawa Senators at home.
Yeah Sea Bass I want to punch something or SOMEONE as well. Can you tell Peter to meet me at the bike rack behind TD Garden at 3PM?
Just one season removed from being the best team in the NHL during the regular season, the Boston Bruins have hit rock bottom.
They have no grit, no snarl (just watch the tape of their 6-2 thrashing at the hands of the MIGHTY Columbus Blue Jackets).
They are no longer BIG & BAD.
The Black & Gold are just sad and listless.
The heart & soul they displayed during the 2011 Cup winning season and the 2013 Final appearance have been ripped from their chests while their lifeless carcasses have been left to rot on the ice.
That heart & soul consisted of such character players and leaders as Andrew Ference, Shawn Thornton & Johnny Boychuk. What the hell, throw Jarome Iginla in that category as well. He helped poke, prod and motivate both Lucic and Krejci to productive regular season performances last year.
This season those heart & soul guys have been replaced by the likes of Jordan Caron, Matt Bartkowski, Seth Griffith, Matt Fraser, Alex Khoklachev, Bobby Robbins, and Craig Cunningham.
All decent players in the AHL but not NHL caliber.
There are tens of thousands of Bruins montages out there. Some are great and some not so much. However, NO montage encapsulates the rich and glorious history of the Spoked B like this.
This Bruins montage WILL bring a black and gold tear to your eye!
You can’t stop it, you only hope you can contain yourself. But let your love for the Bruins flow and let the world know it!
Let’s just hope the 2014-5 team can turn it around and add to these beautiful hockey moments!
