Boston’s Owner Felt Bruins Were Better Than Their Cup Team

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE,

Those that expected a B’s ownership group and management team to express a disappointment after a seven-game loss to the Washington Capitals – and the team’s first opening round playoff exit in four seasons – got exactly what they were looking for. Bruins ownership/management liaison Charlie Jacobs used the term “disappointing” in his first sentence to the assembled media at Legends Restaurant at TD Garden, and the man signing the checks didn’t sound much happier.

Of course the younger Jacobs also mentioned the term “parity” in attempting to reconcile the reasons behind losing in the playoffs, and mentioned a level of pride still there with the team.

“We did expect to get out of that first round this year. We were probably a little better than the team that won the Stanley Cup when you look at the skill level and the age of the players,” said Bruins Principal owner Jeremy Jacobs. “We wanted to do better, we expected to do better and we have every reason to believe we’d do better.”
