Hopefully I`m keeping in the spirit of things, though I do admit to be being very passionate about the Bruins and "The Hub of Hockey"

OK, maybe Fulham has a slice of tradition and yes, I can see the Newcastle image.
However, I`ll stick with Merseyside because, like Boston, Liverpool has a record for sport which is far bigger than the city itself. Neither Liverpool nor Boston are among the most populated cities in their respective countries but , for sport they are at the top - in Boston`s case - at the very top.

Boston is a sports mad city and is renowned as so in north America.

As for the Trophy cabinet - lets look further back than fifteen years ! Boston has FIVE Stanley Cups !
And for a very long time the Bruins were the USA`s most successful pro sports team (successive play-offs)

And yes, some of the names on the ex-Fulham list are eye-brow raisers but not ICONS…….

Check out the retired numbers hanging at the Garden … #4 and #77 are the two all-time greatest defencemen in the history of hockey !!!!!!!

The “success cycle” thing (another thread ?) is really about hockey and not soccer but it does mean that the Bruins will again be a very successful team without relying on the Harrods factor. Laughing

I had the Canadians and Arsenal together cause no one likes them!!!

Daz, I think you might have touched a Boston nerve there!!

As far as the cup goes, wings all the way boys, called it back at the start of the season!!!

Yeah, gets boring after a while...

The Wings haven't played anyone decent yet though. But then as the real Don said - they worked hard all year to get themselves into that position. They got the Stars at the right time, cos they're hurting - look very tired. Good to see McCarty though, and Chelios getting it done at 135 years old!

Not sure which of you 2 guys will be parting with the said fiver, but maybe it would be better spent going over the bar some time! Laughing

Would love to buy you a drink mate but since you got married I've hardly seen you!! Is mrs Don laying down the law a bit or are we going to hear the pitter patter of tiny don feet?

Wings will go all the way, its all about experience!!!

Yeah, but watched the game, and the score doesn't truly reflect. The Wings played well, the Pens can play a lot better, and Osgood kept them in it early on, as the Pens could've been 4 or 5 up. Crosby and in particular Malkin were non-existant, but then Datsyuk wasn't much better and hated the physical side! Bring back Gary Roberts!
