Kessel To Toronto, Classic Jerseys Revealed, Phaneuf lays out Okposo

Phil Kessel

Alright, I know, the Loge has been slacking for the past summer. But for good reason, we’ve all been super busy with our respective jobs. But, I, thekiiiiid, promises that we will be back in full swing along with the regular season. It’s been a busy few weeks for all of us. So, lets get to it. Kessel goes to the Leafs for 2 first round draft picks. Yea Burke? Dude, in all honesty take him. I was blown back by this acquisition for about 2 minutes, then I thought, whatevs….Kessel didn’t buy into Julien’s system, nor will he buy into Burkes. I know, he’ll score atleast 6 goals against the B’s this year….but if I learned one thing during the first round playoff series against the Canadiens last year, f*** ’em. Tonight people were telling me, “Yo, he got a long-term contract for a lot of money.” Wow, cool, I hope his loonies and toonies keep him warm at night while the Cup is passed around the Garden or UC. Money only makes sense in the NFL or NBA, championships mean more in the NHL. What does Brian Burke, Toronto GM have to say? Well if you can decipher what he has to articulate between bourbon shots, listen here.  So, what does this mean for the B’s? Nothing, Sturm is back, we picked up Begin, Krejci is will be ready in November and hopefully at that point Rask is ready to rock if Thomas is tired. For Toronto? Who cares? Komisarek will yuckie his pants like he did with the mediocre Habs, and their goalie situation is still questionable. This has little impact on the Northeast division except that Kessel has more buying power when he plays Boston or Buffalo. I’m over it.

NHL.com with the story:

It was a difficult deal to get done, butToronto Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke stuck with it, and on Friday night he got his man.

Burke continued his revamping of a franchise that hasn’t made the Stanley Cup Playoffs since the 2003-04 season, acquiring 21-year-old center Phil Kessel from theBoston Bruins in exchange for a pair of first-round draft picks and a second-rounder.

The trade was contingent on Kessel signing a contract with his new team, which he did by agreeing to a deal TSN was reporting is worth $27 million over five years.

First Round Playoff Preview?

Put the kids to bed early and tell the wife you’ll be home late. The Bruins and the Canadiens will meet for the last time in the regular season, tonight at the Boston TD BankNorth Garden. Not a whole lot to say here, the Habitants need a win to clinch a playoff berth, the Bruins need to start up the playoff engine. Both teams struggling with injuries, so it’s a pretty even  match-up for these potential first round opponents.

Will the B’s mention anything about the Winter Classic tonight?

On another note, I could not decide which B’s montage I liked the best, so I’m going to put a few more up here:

Fenway_winterclassic_medium

UPDATE: The Boston Globe is now confirming this story. Still waiting to hear confirmation from the NHL. Wondering if the Bruins may announce it tonight at the Habs/B’s game.

ESPN.com is now also confirming the 2010 Winter Classic will be in Boston. Still waiting on the NHL.

I’m sure you have noticed, but it’s been super busy outside the Loge the past 2 weeks thus the lack of conent. We apologize, and will be back in full force next week. Anyway, I came across this article on Stanley Cup of Chowder today and was super stoked. According to the Boston Herald, the Boston Bruins and Fenway Park will host the 2010 Winter Classic on New Years Day. While the opponent has not been set, I hope it’s the Canadiens, there has been rumor it will be the New York Rangers. More coverage here. Thekiid had the chance to check out Chicago host Detroit in the 2009 Winter Classic at Wrigley field, unreal experience. It’s really something the NHL has to do annually.

From the Boston Herald:

Don’t breathe a word of this. Because nobody’s supposed to know. But the Boston Bruins will host the NHL’s Winter Classic outdoor hockey game against an unnamed opponent Jan. 1 at Fenway Park [map]!
