I was at the Sabres vs Bruins game on Thursday night, and while I was trying to procure a beverage before the game, I came across a table where they had Bruins memorabilia, all framed and autographed for auction. There was lots of classic stuff, Cam Neely and Bobby Orr and the like, and then I came across this.

Yup, this was a picture of 'that' hit, featuring Ryan Miller and cheapshotter extraordinaire MIlan Lucic. I think what irked me the most about this was that the auction was actually for charity, and supported by the Boston Bruins organization. Pathetic really, and no class whatsoever.
Of course, there was no one of rank anywhere near the display that I could talk to about how classless that was. Just talking to some Bruins fans around the display and they were quite surprised that was even there alongside pics of their previous Cup triumphs.
To each their own I guess, but pretty disgusting nonetheless.

No surprise here. Just shows how classy their team is if they're selling this, and especially since Lucic signed it.

I'd feign surprise, but it looks like Lucic put his seal of approval on it already. Nothing new here in Colon Campbell's NHL.

Besides, I'm sure Dr Recchi has assured Campbell that there were no injuries sustained on the play.

Not surprised in the least. The Bruins organization is full of scum and infested with rats. This is their best photo of the cleanest indecent in bruins history ! Why wouldn't they honor it with a photo ?

What is it with you lately? The Boston Bruins could gang rape someone and you'd be like 'WELL THE BRUINS WON THE CUP AND YOU GUYS DIVE'. I thought Toronto fans hated Boston? Like I said earlier, must be jealousy.

What are your opinions on the picture?



My thoughts: I can't believe Lucic signed it. Well, I kind of can.

I hate the Bruins because they're in our division, but their players are undeniably effective at what they do.

Who cares if Lucic signed it, it's a charity auction for Christ's sake, it's not like the money is going into the Bruin's pockets.

You guys are up in arms about this team contributing to a charitable cause, it's ludicrous.

Alright that's fine.

I take it you would have no problem with this being signed and auctioned off for charity too right?

Next time Boston is in town, The Canucks should auction off a framed picture of this...

I don't see an issue, if it was for personal gain there would be an issue with both pictures but there is nothing wrong with benefiting the less fortunate.

Having heard Jack Edwards' biased commentary and seen the way Julien defends the team, I'm less surprised that this happened than I should be.

In response, someone needs to broadcast these in their stadium and hire alternating crowds to chant, "Bru-in bull!" and "Wake up Boston!" This franchise's fans need to WAKE UP!





When neutral media comes together to criticize your team for its actions you know you've ****ed up!

EDIT: If those videos in the stadium don't get the job done, to give them their own medicine someone needs to find all the times Chara gets decked on YouTube, Chara getting beat down by Neil, Marchand getting decked by Subban, etc. Boy what a mess of a franchise
