1. JFK has signed a deal with a team in Sweden.
2. You completely made up the backes stuff. It’s been the exact opposite unfortunately

My Bad with the JFK thing lol, didn't even know that... Good for him though, he needs a little more development...

brandon carlo is correct, backes and bruins have both been stating he is ready to give it everything he has until they tell him he cant play anymore. media was stirring up some ltir rumors but none of them were confirmed or had real footing behind them. Wishful thinking on our end i guess.

Thank you for BEING RESPECTFUL! Idk lol I heard it was more serious than we thought because they do need space to bring Carlo back, with Backes I believe they only have like 3.5 Million in space so they could bridge him, but if they wanna lock him up it has to be done. I have toyed around with trades too so we could look into that

@Bcarlo25 this is how you should discuss with people... Be kind, I made nothing up, and you look rude and wrong now

Sweeney came out and said they have enough space right now to sign Carlo. Backes has also been getting looks with Krejci/DeBrusk in the early part of camp. Can't imagine he'll stay there, but crazier things have happened.

The Bruins don't need money to sign Carlo. They can LTIR Moore and Miller and that would get them another 5m+.
Backes will be on the team this year. He won't get a ton of playing time. They might send him down to expand the teams he is willing to go to, but still highly unlikely.

He will be on this team until the offseason, he will be dealt or bought out then. The way Wagner and Kuraly play, having a vet that can step in throughout the season and still give them the consistency is very much needed and important in their division. They would have to give up too much to move him now, with no real reason/benefit for doing so.

Sweeney and Neely have both said about a dozen times he’s part of the team and that he’s healthy. Maybe they’re bluffing. Maybe they have a plan, but saying that the bruins have said he won’t be playing for them is fundamentally false. I don’t think I know more than everyone, but in this instance, I know that I know more than you. Sorry

How was I rude? You stated something as fact that was 100% incorrect, so I told you it was incorrect.

As one of the other guys said on this section, there were IN FACT multiple rumors that Backes wasn't going to play this season, that is a fact. I just wish Bcarlo25 would have said it more respectful instead of "oh your a jerk making up lies"... No other issue lol, just learn from the situation. ***Again u guys are probably RIGHT that Backes will play, but there is no denying that the information was put out there, and thus I used it. Just try to respect other's opinions, as they are valid, true, and may also be correct, yours arent the only ones that matter.

You said it came from the bruins, and multiple sources. That’s just made up. The bruins have never said anything other than he’s healthy, and a big part of the team.

"OR" not and, and its "Related" source not multiple.... Again, a rumor is a rumor, so it may not be true. But it exists so it was NOT made up... Idk why Im still trying to explain this to you, clearly your head is as thick as a brick... Just accept that the rumor WAS out there, you are wrong to keep trying to tell me otherwise, and move on!

@Bcarlo25 ... I tagged those guys here to mention something very important. I don't ever argue with anyone on here, I have had fun discussions with a bunch of guys on my posts and made edits and admittedly smiley faces cuz we r chill lol... I only ever argue with one guy and its you. On the other hand, I looked through your past few posts, and I see angry argument after angry argument. So the point is this, there is a common theme in arguments on here, and it is you. Stop trying to fight people, lets talk, lets agree to disagree about stuff, you are not always right, you are probably wrong sometimes too. I gotta be honest, Im done with you, what you say on my posts doesn't matter anymore, and I tagged the others to let them see what the issue is here, you. Enjoy this website, but please stay away from my posts, I don't need that toxicity here. Just trying to enjoy a friendly community.

Ya, and I’m the rude one. If you want to try to say that your original post did not insinuate that this information came from the bruins, that’s fine. You’re BS’ing yourself, and all of us if you take that route. It’s very clear that’s what you meant. If you said that there were some random bloggers trying to get clicks that produced this information, I would have had no issue with this post. No one credible mentioned it. No one associated with the NHL (I think this originally came from some random WEEI blogger) mentioned it. I’m not the only one that thought this was just made up, so, either you made it up, or you really misrepresented what you were trying to say when you mentioned where the sources were coming from. I think everyone here interpreted that as that it came from the Bruins.

So, did I make it up? Who's really Being themselves? smile Clearly, based on what u just said, I didn't make it up. As I have said, and you just said, I saw it somewhere.

Honestly, tough crap. People post absurd stuff on here and I tell them that it’s absurd. I’m blunt. If they take offense to that and start a battle, that’s their problem, not mine. I’m not going to come at with kiddie gloves. If something is just fundamentally wrong, I’m not going to say, “oh, well, I think that even though I’m sure you’re very smart and had the best of intentions, I think maybe this is just a little bit off. But good job slugger!” If someone posts something that’s bad, I’ll let them know. If it’s awesome, I’ll let them know that too.

I’m not going to stay away from your posts. If you post something bad, like this, I’ll likely say it is what it is. If you post something good, you’ll probably hear that it’s awesome. I’m not going to decide what I post on based on your feelings. There is a block function on here though. Feel free to use it. I won’t be shedding any tears over that.

You did see it somewhere. You were disingenuous about where you saw it. I don’t know if that was intentional or not. If you meant to say that you saw it from some random blogger that has zero credibility, you did not do a good job of expressing that in the description.

Your right bud, there is nothing wrong with being blunt. Im entirely with you on the fact that we can't be giving out participation awards and crap like that lol. I am against the "softening of America" or whatever u wanna call it, and I will tell u, I do respect that in you No need to tell people they are good when they arent. Im not saying you shouldn't be blunt or give your opinion. However, Im just saying that you will make less enemies on here by just trying to hold a good conversation rather than alienating other people on here by being a dick. There is a difference in being blunt and being a jerk. Come discuss with me, tell me that what I heard was BS!!! but don't tell me that Im making something up when we both know im not. Is that a fair statement dude?

Fair enough. I think we can chalk this up as a misunderstanding. I think we can both agree that the wording of the description led to people interpreting it as information that came from the bruins.

I promise you im not a bad guy and I genuinely don't think you are either bud! I also think we have a lot of the same ideas about hockey stuff in general lol... I just hate having heating talks ya know. No need to baby me lol, but I find that the best way to get someone to understand you is to say things in a calm, friendly, and non-aggressive way. Thats all man. Also I will admit, I did try blocking you a while back and I could still somehow see your comments... on my posts lol. Just how it is I guess, hey can't wait for our next big fight bud! smile --- This is an attempt at friendly jousting, I hope it doesn't come across as fighting words!

Haha sounds good. I’ll try to keep it a bit more cheerful. I can definitely tend to be a bit dry to but it mildly. Go Bs.
