Teach Me How 2 Dougie

On the left, the famous line exclaimed by NESN’s own Jack Edwards when captain Zdeno had the goal of the year against the Panthers dons an awesome new t shirt. Featuring the familiar Black and Gold colors and the Tazmanian Devil doing what he does best, this shirt is a collectible for all Bruins fans.

On the right, a T shirt commemorating Boston’s exciting rookie defenseman Dougie Hamilton, referencing the popular song.  Wouldn’t it be great to be wearing this T shirt and impress all your friends when the 19-year-old phenom scores a goal from the point on the power play (okay, we can dream) or makes a savvy defensive play?

Dont Puck With Us Tshirt 1899

A cool design featuring Bruins Black and Gold. The “T” in Boston is symbolic in the city, and represents the MBTA, or “the T” where you can catch a train, the subway, or a bus.

And last but not least, The Jaromir Jagr selection. The newest member of the Bruins, hailing from Czech Republic, also happens to have a kick-ass last name that has Bruins fans everywhere tipping back a glass every time he scores. Check them out below.

For the Bros, because we all know mullets are still cool even if the collective female population writhes in horror at the thought of it. Bring back some Jagr nostalgia and support the newest Bruin during their playoff run!

Moves Like Jagr T 1899

Because this is clever, and we’ve all got an over-excited hoser in our group of friends who has proclaimed that Jagr is their favorite Bruin, even though they couldn’t tell you anything else about him.

Montreal Turtles 18.99

Because those squids in Montreal ruin the game we love and retract into their stupid little shells when real confrontation begins, let em know what you think of them with this Montreal Turtles shirt.

Joe Cannata Recalled by Canucks

Merrimack Athletics sent out the following press release today:

Former Merrimack College goalie, Joe Cannata (Wakefield, Mass.) has been promoted to the Vancouver Canucks of the NHL for the final two games of the regular season, as announced by the team on Wednesday.

Cannata was a sixth-round draft pick of the Canucks and signed with the team last spring after a stellar collegiate career at Merrimack.

Cannata appeared in 14 games for the Chicago Wolves this season, the Vancouver Canucks AHL affiliate, registering a 2.65 goals-against average and a .912 save percentage. Cannata compiled a 6-6-0 record during his stint with the Wolves.

Cannata departed as Merrimack’s all-time leader in wins, games played, minutes played, saves, goals-against and save percentage. He started all but one game in his final two years and allowed only 27 even strength goals (excluding empty netters) in 27 league games as a senior. The Wakefield native surrendered more than two goals only eight times as a senior, as Merrimack went 18-2-4 when scoring two or more goals. 

A two-time Hobey Baker nominee and Walter Brown award semifinalist, Cannata was a Hockey East first-team selection as a senior, becoming the program’s first first-team honoree since 1993-94.

BREAKING NEWS: Lucic Staying In Boston

Milan Lucic: Bruin for life?

On the verge of a potential lockout and a new Collective Bargaining Agreement whose terms and conditions and are still unknown, the Boston Bruins have made a move for their future. A trusted source told Blind Obedience today that 24-year-old first line winger Milan Lucic has agreed in principle to a new contract extension with the Boston Bruins. Originally believed to be a six-year extension, the source clarified that terms of the deal were still in negotiation, but the deal would be a “franchise contract”, which was explained as a deal that would “allow Milan to play for Boston until he retires”. Because the deal has not yet been completed, nothing official has been released by the team. Financial terms of the deal were not explicitly disclosed, however the deal will likely include a full no-trade clause. This would seemingly end recent speculation that Lucic may be traded, as he was rumored to be part of the potential asking price from the Anaheim Ducks for their star wing Bobby Ryan.

At the end of this upcoming season, several members of the Bruins core currently stand to be free agents, including Tyler Seguin, Brad Marchand and Tuukka Rask. This combined with the uncertain future surrounding the rules of the new CBA makes this move by the team even more important. Boston has been criticized by some this offseason for their lack of big moves, but in a recent radio interview on 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Felger and Mazz, Bruins President Cam Neely stuck to his guns, defending his lack of moves and core players saying:

“We do have to be better but I think our players can be better. We still have a young group of core players that can improve,” he added, mentioning Tyler Seguin, Brad Marchand, Milan Lucic and David Krejci by name.

It’s nice to see the Bruins sticking to their young, tough core of talented stars. The Bruins needed to make a big move, and this seems to be step one in what will hopefully be a process of locking up their team to stay in Boston for a long time.
