Bruins share their Valentine's Day secrets, a meathead is spotted and your twitter questions are answered
Go back to the great American hockey -- Kevin Walsh filling in for my yard which Joseph I guess means. The last time. I wasn't half. At bat. You know -- we'll see your American you like hockey so you absolutely qualified for the show they -- I've I've come as a replacement which is good enough and never in good fashion and and thanks -- -- -- sartorial splendor over here it's nice question nice to know you -- me about a third of the way there. What looks -- about Valentine -- it's a couple days in the past but. You know romance is kind of about an attitude in a not so much about it counter my -- show. 365. A year it doesn't surprise me -- -- old romantic journal and a little bit and -- all I can see that is get the old fashioned wins are not going on the ties and he's a handsome looking devil. For me it's not about the chocolates and flowers and roses and any of that on Valentine's Day while -- I'm expecting my first child so. This Valentine's Day I found myself in target buying high chair. That's when it kind of became real does little baby -- on the way so everybody's Valentine's Day it was a little different this year. Here's what the Bruins talk about what they do for their special someone on Valentine's Day. I don't mind. Because then then you give it already -- -- I -- yes it is and I couldn't -- I was here today. Some zones that is not legal in the cat out of the bag here and -- -- In this this year I got there I got my life. -- panic here and some others. Yeah yeah just to achieve here flowers and now. I'd like flowers in the interview room. It's just like they overpriced stars in the nothing. Special. The goal flyers. I'll see some little -- to -- them better and better yesterday. Know Jeff just flowers flowers and then they close to him. Every year isn't it. The studies and my dad almost pushing for a little suspect enough that I and so he's taking the kids the same elements also there are too -- -- going into. To give my secrets of race and every guy in addition of you know that's that's a good idea why -- I think. You know that it would be special. You don't want anybody ripping off your creativity it's about time. Have to get to the word of the week which means we have to take a trip to and a gust body that -- have to go to the library loans last time you -- -- actually with them last year went back to my old alma mater Salem state college and I was in the college library right now it's. Many a time back in the day during my college career Walsh who -- -- means let's wait and did you pay all your fines that are still I don't know when he finds there I'd -- -- public library back in the day almost and graduate because the -- that's different story for different if you're having trouble tracking down let me know and I will find him for you last time I was library that I don't know couple weeks ago what -- -- to -- to the food easy library that we hear it. Happier Comcast sports net noted author here and that's why he was in the library aren't let's do -- Kevin Walsh style don't want -- Oh no I've got that ball back over here just like that was -- -- all -- what I'm just out that's the space invited Israeli and today was space invaders little shuffle that separate. This week's hockey word of the week we talked to Gregory Campbell. And his word was professional cap which is you're the consummate professional you're gonna enjoy this one appreciate. He really is professional professional means somebody who knows what they're doing very very skilled and do my example is. -- again and yeah. -- -- -- -- This this one -- -- -- -- we only broke got a couple times last year -- but actually I think the person that we're gonna talk about the head of the week was the target that. Matt -- in -- in all honesty we might have to turn this into the mat Cooke of the week that rather than me had a week because once again. -- he's in the headlines he's hurting people washing its always it has it has always him you know people can say. It happened fast it wasn't his fault you know it was an accident it was just the fast paced courts -- the denominator. It snack or is it you know what. There's no good reason why his left leg went up in the air and then came down -- escape on the back of the Achilles heel of our calls and Bruce tried -- -- -- he's trying to take his legs out or is trying to do we did which was sliced the Achilles tendon which is gateway. Either way that school is tough to know that again the guys we had a good week. -- Couple Twitter action here we got a -- from Tim cannot wants to know about Tyler -- whereas I going to be in a year and a half and half years from now in the context of superstars that will he be the superstar that down. Leadership role and emotionally I would think you know I think he has lost Jets still think he's on board and on pace for that. I think what happened this year was he like he lit it up in Europe he scored goals it will you can do whatever he wanted to do offensively. And I'm not sure if it was the rink size as much as I think he just felt like he was gonna come back here and it was -- automatically translate. It was going to be made it easy for the last four or five games. But the talent -- we're used to and I eventually two and a half years from now two years from now. Thirty goals or seventy to eighty point guy powerfully stable. All star perennially I think he's going to be -- Okay here's my -- I'll believe it when I see if he clearly has the talent. If he has the work ethic that you know allows that talent to come out he will be there all the tools are there comes down to that he asked to bring it each and every time. He may not -- -- balls every game but if he works part some of those goals even some better luck you'll start finding his way it's kind of a karma thing you well and good things will probably. Our next Twitter question comes from at empty stands -- -- -- what the possibility of drawn again Monday for Jason Spezza coming over this trade deadlines. I don't think expensive because he's out the back injury maybe meant Daniel Alfredsson who could be available at the bottom drops out. For Ottawa that's an interesting game to put out there -- again was certainly has the -- everybody wants and people think would be a great fit. It's rugged player because he's an offensive player because some big name because he's. A veteran that everybody's gonna wanna win the Stanley Cup for its a nice little combination. For a team like Boston Bruins -- -- about this. -- -- In the last year of his contract with the Dallas Stars. He skated with -- heavily and -- Chris Kelly when they won the Stanley Cup a couple of years ago. Chemistry is a huge deal for the Boston Bruins it's all the ever talked about Michael -- -- the -- kind of chemistry of the Boston -- starter -- bottom -- -- Western Conference teams right now they -- a bit. If you start to hear his name a little bit I think it's an interesting name to keep an. Okay Michael Ryder good playoff player during the regular season not so much at all I don't think -- -- him I don't sit there and cared about though because the trade deadlines and April. It's only three weeks into the playoff starts -- year is getting of the playoff run. Where is a proven performer you're even making my argument for me OK okay fine so you get a rental I had him Michael Ryder -- he can come in and score some playoff goals that night. I guess it's worth it exotic convinced of mats still wants to know what his status is with Jordan Raanan and he is. On the front line last year to get to get a call up some points. Might have some. I mean they're gonna have to run through some players and some injuries are gonna happen before the bring a guy like that up I thought it was very telling. That they went out and signed JP and offered a contract and put him right on the NHL roster rather than call Jordan Raanan at some point I can tell you right now. There are a lot of Bruins people in the organization that didn't love what they saw a crime this year didn't feel like. They saw the urgency down in Providence while -- is going on certainly didn't see the production in the consistent energy level. -- from that kind of player maybe he was just kind of waiting until the NHL start again. Sort of coasting through blood. I did I don't know that we're gonna see in the -- lot of guys were down and that's a possibility because the Bruins are going to be playing every other day. In the schedule gets very happy and maybe does come up at some point but I think the bloom is off the Rose little them. We do it a Simpson -- win in the week and here's what happened Phil Perry one of our. I'll Riders on CS NNE dot com it was his birthday on an Adam Hart and reduces the great American are very talented Adam Hart not. Bought him an ice cream cake. And I was so lucky to comment right timing got a piece today and I commented. That -- in case were far more probably -- thirty years ago than they are today it was the standard fare at children's birthday parties. Yeah I'm willing to bet that about 10% of the -- hates me now are basically expressed. It with the soft that a key part. And it's insisted on. You know -- to Walsh -- -- exact kind of -- busted on the birthday party takes somebody's cake that gives us a little offered a lot of tape edited it wasn't until. He is soliloquy and pastry case and how great they were back in the day get off Kevin Walsh has -- everybody.
