If you’ve paid attention to this website in the past, you’ll notice we don’t spend a lot of time talking about hockey.
Fredy and I just aren’t the biggest fans.
I’ll typically pay closer attention to the Bruins when the playoff starts, because the NHL playoffs tend to be chaotic, but otherwise I’m not super invested during the season. Hockey games are fun in-person, but again, I am just not knowledgeable about the sport to even talk about it in this forum the way I would basketball, football or baseball.
As most of you already know, Boston has been the hub of sports for the past two decades, winning 12 championships in the process. From the Patriots dynasty (still going), to the Red Sox randomness of great seasons, to the Bruins having two more shots at the Cup, and the Celtics still trying to get banner 18 for the first time since 2008, the city is certainly trying to add more. All four teams have a decent to really good chance at winning one or a few during this new decade, which begs the question, who’s most likely to hold a trophy first this decade?
Thank God I’m just a bandwagon Bruins fan because that list would have devastated me! Listen, I love sports as much as the next guy but hockey isn’t for me. Maybe next season that’ll change and I’ll understand the game more. But as of now, what should be a kick in the nuts 4-1 loss in a Game 7 feels like a love tap for now.
In this post, I’ll be joined by fellow writer Nick. We’ll be discussing things to look forward to (unless your a Red Sox fan) this summer. Yes, Boston just won 2 championships, but the grind doesn’t stop and neither do we! Let’s get this bad bitch rolling.

In this edition of “They Should’ve Been a Dynasty,” we explore recent NHL teams that should have won more than they ultimately did.
Remember the rules, I see as a dynasty: a team that has won at least three championships in a 10-year window. It can be a smaller window (i.e. a three-peat), but I think the simplest barometer is winning three championships within a certain window of time, showing that you were the best of your sport, and you showed it repeatedly.
