Johnny Boychuk, we hardly knew you indeed. In just 6 short years in the Hub of hockey, your thunderous hits and laser like slappers made you a fan favorite of Boston Bruins fans everywhere. You were a blue collar worker on skates and gave your all for your teammates.
Boom Boom Boychuk…
You will be missed…
Happy trails #55….happy trails….
Pot of Baked Beans Goes To Boston Bruins Reddit!
Back in July, if I told you the Patriots would trade Logan Mankins (for a tight end the Pats don’t throw to), their best offensive lineman and the Bruins would trade Johnny Boychuk (for some 2nd round picks in ’15 & ’16), a top three defenseman, you would think I was smoking an illegal substance. Well it looks like Bill Belichick and Peter Chiarelli have been smoking the whacky tobacky. These two trades were made planning for tomorrow instead of trying to win today.
Both Logan Mankins and Johnny Boychuk probably would not be wearing the Flying Elvis or Spoked B come 2015, but why not try to win now with an aging Tom Brady and Zdeno Chara? It now seems that the championship windows of both of these franchises may be closing quicker than their fans would want to admit or stomach. The Patriots may have a disgruntled Tom Brady on their hands and the Bruins have their “core” intact (minus Boychuk now) but the rest of the supporting cast is not good enough to compete with the iron of the NHL.
Mankins and Boychuk are just two of many bewildering and dumbfounding moves made by “the Hoodie” and PC. Here is a quick list of the head scratchers of both teams:
- Allowing Wes Welker to walk
- Allowing Danny Woodhead to walk
- Signing Danny “They won’t throw to me” Amendola
- Undervaluing Emmanuel Sanders
- Leaving Aaron Dobson inactive for 3 out of 4 games
- Cutting Kenbrell Thompkins (who Brady actually TRUSTS)
These moves have left Tom Brady with no one to throw to outside Julian Edelman and a half powered Rob Gronkowski. This is of course if he has any time to throw with the turnstile of an offensive in front of him. Instead of surrounding a future Hall of famer with an arsenal of weapons (hello Peyton Manning), Brady is given the scraps from the bargain bin.
Yes, finally there is a Bobby Orr postage stamp…
Unfortunately, for us Bruins fans in the United States, it’s only available in Canada. Orr joins 5 other Hall of Fame blue liners, Tim Horton, Pierre Pilote, Red Kelly, Doug Harvey and Harry Howell on the Canadian stamps.
Damn that is beautiful, now how the hell do I get one!

Who is the Awesome Jeffy Poo you ask? He is a passionate Bruins fan with some SWEET Black & Gold gloves.
The Gloves DON’T LIE people!
He is about to get you fired up for another season of Boston Bruins hockey!
Are you ready?!?!
Seriously, I have no f’n idea what that was. He is a Pittsburgh Steelers fan too, so that might explain it.
I really don’t know what is going on at all, perhaps he just likes the colors Black & Gold?
Well thanks Awesome Jeffy Poo….I am fired up for Bruins hockey now…..I think…..
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has been embracing Throwback Thursday on his Facebook page. First, it was his resume and now a picture from a trip to Disney Land.
I have seen that same look on Tom Brady’s face recently…..
…..it’s that look of fear of a scary amusement ride or a horrifying offensive line!
