Afternoon Line

“Higher than I expected and higher than I think is warranted."

“We’ve had our fair share of players hurt badly by concussions, I don’t think anyone’s gotten a 15-game suspension out of those. Thornton is a guy who plays the role he plays and has never had any suspensions or issues. It comes down a little harsh for me.”

-Cam Neely, President of the Boston Bruins on the Shawn Thornton suspension, via CSNNE.

Afternoon Line

“Personally, I’d rather have a player with a separated shoulder than someone with a concussion.  I don’t know why it’s that difficult to look at the equipment and say, ‘We really need to do something with the shoulder pads and elbow pads.’”

-Cam Neely, President of the Boston Bruins via Fluto Shinzawa of the Bruins Blog.

Taking the Stanley Cup Home to Mom & Dad

From Dan Rosen at NHL.com:

Mike and Marlene Neely never got to see their only son win the Stanley Cup. They both succumbed to cancer, first Marlene in 1987 and then Mike seven years later.

Mike and Marlene also had a wish to have their children spread their ashes in the Pacific Ocean. So, that’s what Cam and his sisters, Chris and Shaun, did for them.

Today, Cam and his sisters are bringing the trophy he worked his entire life for back to his parents because a special visit to his hometown like this one wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Belcarra Regional Park here in Port Moody.

Update: Here are some of Rosen’s photos today.

Q. When was the last time you saw Ulf Samuelsson?

A. Well, we played Phoenix in Prague and I saw him from afar, which was good enough for me.

Q. Have you guys ever spoken?

A. No.

Q. Do you have an opinion on that day?

A. I think it’s been well chronicled, so let’s just leave it there.

Report- Cam Neely Will Be Named Boston Bruins President

via the Boston Herald,

The Bruins have called a press conference for tomorrow to announce that Vice President Cam Neely will be elevated to the title of team president, according to a club source. It has long been speculated that the Hall of Fame former Bruin, who became a club executive after GM Peter Chiarelli was hired in 2006, would one day stepped into the role of team president, last held by Harry Sinden, who was moved out of that role and into that of senior adviser to the owner, also after Chiarelli was hired.

Scoring On Opening Night

from Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun,

The Rangers might want to get Brendan Shanahan in uniform, at least for opening night. He and Cam Neely share the NHL record with hat tricks in two different season opening games, Shanny’s coming in St. Louis in 1993 and Detroit in 2001. He’s just about due again.

Making a Difference Away From the Ice

From John Bishop at BostonBruins.com, a note that The Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care celebrated the opening of The Neely Pediatric Bone Marrow Transplant Unit.

The Neely family launched the Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care in 1995 after the passing of their parents Marlene and Michael Neely from cancer. The Neely Foundation has raised more than $17 million from donations of all sizes, impacted thousands of families and continues to dedicate itself to designing, funding, and completing projects with immediate and tangible results.

“I know that neither of us ever dreamed that we would have this kind of impact when we set out on this mission some 14-plus years ago to honor our parents,” said Scott Neely, before turning to his brother to say, “Cam, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you have done to help us achieve our mission to be able to, in such a meaningful and significant way, honor the memory of mom and dad.”

The New Cam Neely

From Lew Serviss at Slap Shot (NYT hockey blog),

Lucic reported to Boston and banged and crashed through training camp and pre-season, a 6-foot-4, 220-pound bunker buster. He wound up cracking the Bruins’ opening night roster.

His introduction to the Boston faithful came 2:17 into the Bruins’ first home game. Lucic squared off with Tampa Bay’s Nick Tarnasky and rained about a dozen heavy rights on the unsuspecting Lightning tough guy.

The hit (and fight) parade continued. Lucic, 19, also looked at home offensively,setting up plays and firing a hard shot, on a line with the dangerous Phil Kessel and another skilled rookie, David Krejci. In the fourth game of the season, Lucic scored a Gordie Howe hat trick in Los Angeles, where he held his own with the Kings’ 260-pound enforcer Raitis Ivanans.

In Boston, the combination of physical play, heavyweight toughness and offensive ability in a Bruins jersey adds up to just one thing: Cam Neely.

Neely Gets A Position

via the Boston Bruins,

Charlie Jacobs and Jeremy Jacobs have just named Cam Neely as a Vice President of the Boston Bruins.

Cam will be working with Peter Chiarelli in hockey operations and will also assist Charlie Jacobs with other functions with the club.

“I really got excited about being involved with the Bruins again,” said Cam of his time at the Draft. He also said that like many people he was disappointed with the direction the club had taken over the last few years, and at the urging of Charlie and Peter, he felt the time was appropriate.

“The fans of the Bruins expect their teams (to play a certain) way…to take pride in being a Bruin,” said Neely. “You may not play well every night, but you can work hard every night.”
