Was always driving from the former. Seat of all NHL power Montreal through the free and independent states of Vermont New Hampshire and Massachusetts today. It struck -- what an odd thing royalty is. Royalty in modern times is something that is perpetuated by those. Who didn't actually. Make those great conquering achievements and establish their -- but rather those who find themselves because of a certain location and history in an accident of birth. Isn't -- me down in a position to carry on a tradition extemporaneous. Those royals sit there on their show before and were in their hand mirrors they do. And try to dictate morality. According to them about how you can dive or how you should play or how you shouldn't want a player into the center blast and the rest of us. Wheels for filthy masses are just supposed to take. A couple hundred years ago -- rowdy radicals charged artisan Boston bars went down to the dock and -- the king's tea into -- these seats all of these. And in doing that it struck a court order wearing dry right now -- That Lincoln this was -- emit thirty and concede. The flight is not only the right thing to do. It can be a heck of a lot of form. And who has more fun than. The great Jack Edwards voice of the Bruins on S and mark -- 93 point seven WEE we get that matchup tonight. We're a great rivalries not just in Boston sports but all sports. Bruins Canadians waited it out earlier today at much WEE ID -- and they did on sports center a year ago he forgets some of that stuff. -- barrel lay on the ice -- and going off the -- and given the finger patch or read muses. An amazing rivalry for the first time here in 2013. We get Bruins Canadians and a couple of teams they're pretty good year all the -- -- that for the division Montreal's appoint back Somalia the rivalry. Now you have two teams that don't like each other. This early in the year but it's at night for the division a look at at an angle. It's what you need right I mean just last year. We talk about the rivals. It's only. Good drive broom ball teams mean some things the last -- sort of lost a member. It assumed that Stanley Cup run rather the Bruins game seven and you thought you know what. But -- -- -- -- Bruins team this is going to be some in the canes aren't going anywhere young and if fast. It's great young players if they get everything you need -- PK soup on the guy you love to hate. This -- -- it's going nowhere. In panic among last year it hit a bunch of injuries still but that non factor. -- 78 total points absolute non pregnant no not fun not far at all no. Emea. We have at the winner this now leads division that's what you want you want them back in the playoffs you want a seven game series against these guys. End their back and they're playing better so -- is it generally stood at a day what do we have great -- before with the -- case to -- contract. Hats off to the Canadians but they often -- through your five and a million dollar deal back in August and before the lockout kinda stuck to their guns. That's they got -- -- two years five point 75 million. That's a great GOP can want it five -- five years. Get him for two year deal. That kind of money. -- bigger plates mutual aid and put a good player begin -- that. Well in terms of the team itself and -- Casey money talk about that is a guy that if he wore a if he wore a Bruins sweater you absolute level as what -- highlights today get ramp up for this. You forget that he's investigator and he -- around but my guy he -- he skates in place so hard. And that's a guy if you if you found -- way your team you love that guy you hate him because he wears the red white and little Montreal. You would love him if he played for the Bruins and you'd not many guys like now on that team yet not all that likable team is not likeable with style play. -- I've gone back and listen and Jack today and thinking about this rivalry just that. You're Bruins team Wright thirty stands for something it stands -- this blue collar approach. It stands for all four lines that clawed its general out there pretty much as for good goaltending good defensive hockey. The commanding Stanford -- around trying to get penalties again on the power play. That's them that's the opposite with the Bruins stand for -- all. As an organization. That. They just. It's something unlikable but most of that team not -- PK -- on -- does some of that stuff that we eyes are on the ice like he's on the Montreal diving team. But it just it's easy to dislike them because of the way they play the game yet he's had this like Montreal. It is -- like their fans seem fan base. That was call on 911. They arrest Shara. Couple years ago this would dealing with here. With the Montreal fan base -- You talk about last year and now they're back it is great that there back and it's great that they're so. Breaking a likable of the Yankees -- is great because it was competitive. In there it's not like Reich is the case for all that money. Screwed them -- Steinbrenner. Evil empire well turned -- teams spend just as much down strike at. There were easy -- this like the Canadians are so easy to hate that it makes this game tonight that. Much more exciting -- Bruins and that's why Brad Marchand is out and include joins keep his fingers crossed. That -- replace. Saturday against camp I believe that these close. It looked like this morning skate Gregory Campbell took his place with Bergeron and -- and -- first look at Ryan Spooner. Which which I find interesting a prominent fourth line there with McDermott and -- I don't know amid the -- estimate the Katie skilled right he's scored I put him on the fourth line -- a -- ball. The second third line via the second on that third line involve their little bit more. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It looks like they're trying to get him back for Tampa and it's this team in general right in the week we talked about about buffalo and in the game and in the way the season's gone. -- goal at the stretch -- of what three days without hockey he played Saturday Sunday Monday Tuesday. They're a three game -- a three day off stretch later on this month. -- next three day off stretch is not the month of April there's a legitimate sprint comic. But the Boston Bruins just take a look at the schedule and get a chance and it really. It starts tonight but it really starts later on this month. And this is where that depth we talk about and at some people make fun of -- for the rolls out. All those lines and the only place that fourth line too much in nation be help they are let's cited keep. Your top two lines more ice time this one that really helps you this when I think that is huge when you gonna play all these schemes in such a short amount of time. And begin -- 21 of this month you -- I have a three day off stretch until April. And you'll look -- see the fact that you know IA's already got -- a look at. All the points they've gotten other -- -- sheet through what eighteenth at seven points. But they have you know 141516. Other guys. Who party gotten points. And had that sort adapt and use it at this point. Ike is a major -- throw other teams that are more top -- And and it's not just -- four lines obviously helps but it is depth of of guys you can bring up here. Like owner like Iran that might be coming up at some point have a guy like McDermott and Cardiff and in all of these guys crisp Bork because ship. These -- you look at the schedule not to look at march and April. Mean you're talking about. At least three games -- week sometimes for me playing every other date back to backs. So receptive to these teams it's gonna be all about depth that -- year. Mean lines are gonna be left and right at the teams can be healthy and we knew we already shorten the season to -- Marchand is out and Orton is out and Seidenberg has been out choke. It's gonna continue it was going to be a stretcher other guys go -- Bergeron a creature -- to whatever it is. So it's all about the depth right now on this team and only a four lines that you're competent. Authority can hit and a continued -- more Vietnam with the angels while. Arch rival first place on the line does get much better for -- we've been out without anything here Celtics or Bruins for a couple of days. And I can't wait for this game here ties is a cold beer can on the couch -- game. And get yourself locked in for Bruins committee that Texas is exactly use the same thing with -- put him on the bleeping fourth line. When he first got caught -- put guys in the best position to succeed it it's difficult maybe if he gets Boehner kind of his feet wet a little bit and nick is like you said the dep is gonna come and placed -- are we gonna play a lot this year with. Different guys going down throughout the years we've -- -- his first game in Montreal he put him out there and to skate around try to relax try to get as comfortable as possible. And it eventually maybe move up to more skill like that that play areas and you know do you in his first NHL game in Montreal bump them up to a second line got a tough call. But I think as it goes on maybe get him off the fourth climbing. Almost that third line games more skill players Travis tech. The show and he says sorry -- maybe it's just me but I wouldn't wanna get excited to get a professional diver on the Bruins I ams a week. I'm in the minority then I would love. Go to one of the -- whoever they can't go get a player like that it agitator but he's freaking good. And the reason you don't like him is because he plays for Montreal -- crappy style player but as a player. I'd taken my team any day of the week. -- and -- we get your Bruins phone calls and hear Mike Dario. I don't know what's up Mike Mike -- caught right in the area trying to like get that stroke and a little too early today. Actually I'm right in between ordering him to -- sorry what about what you wanna. Do you were we to. I understand yeah I see here Wailea bacon -- she's -- that the beautiful. Places elegant in between you know had a wonderful big ones but it's kind of a late breakfast. Man at my car stop their day on a Mike Michael puts a hold Belichick which order he -- -- talk Bruins Canadiens that's where we are full service radio show -- -- there. Now I've not called a station but I get a call on a drive through. And it's that weird thing to do you've already ordered now the call comes in you know -- got to hand the person the money and get the food back I game ended the the Turkey bacon chatter on English muffin their Duncan donuts and Diet Coke again and ankle. And you're like okay -- -- I wanna disperse and hear me when I'm paying this they wanna hear that a problem to stop a dumped on the way home it's a tough call -- like on old. And I'll let him make an order I respect that they called in there wait non talks Bruins. 61777979837. That your phone number you can text that's on the AT&T text line at 37937. Your thoughts. On his Bruins Canadians game here tonight and beat this rivalry. Yes it's still hold that same -- guys. I'm here injected that diatribe as your ticket about the dislike for decades my blood starts to -- little bit.
