Ice Chips

I apologize for the light blogging recently. Lots of "real world" stuff getting in the way...

I find it ironic that the Boston Bruins are being criticized for their salary cap management by the same media members who praise the Patriots' approach. The Bruins have been traditionally tight-fisted when it comes to paying their players, but they seem to be acquiring good character players at reasonable prices while attempting to keep their stars (Joe Thornton and Sergei Samsonov) by paying them a high salary - but not top dollar. That's basically been the Patriots philosophy. The NHL owners have seen what happens to NFL teams that spend their way into salary cap problems, and they'd be smart to be frugal.
