Jacobs: Jury still out on Bruins

7 Comments

The Boston Bruins may have gone into the All-Star break as one of the NHL’s hottest teams, but the team’s CEO, Charlie Jacobs, still isn’t satisfied.

Jacobs, of course, had previously called the Bruins’ season “unacceptable.”

And now?

“What are we, 6-1-3 in our last 10 games? I feel we’re certainly trending better. We’ll still have the odd game where we seem a bit uninspired, but I guess you’re going to have that in an 82-game schedule,” said Jacobs, per CSN New England. “Having said that all of that, the stuff that we’ve done with the better play has gotten us to eighth place.

“Do I feel better about it that we’re in a playoff spot? Yes. Do I wish we were in a better position than we are? Absolutely. Again, I’ll repeat that for this team to be even remotely close to missing the playoffs isn’t something we can be happy about. I would hope that this solid play continues for the next 10, the next 20 and for the rest of the season, frankly. We’re at where we’re at, we’ve dug ourselves a hole and we’re starting to get ourselves out of it. But until we have a nice playoff run, the jury is going to have to be out on this group.”

The B’s have a tough stretch coming out of the break with games against the Islanders, Kings, Rangers, Islanders again, and Montreal.
