BHN Puck Links: Hayes Tributes And Do Bruins Fans Want PK Subban?



Boston Bruins

The hockey community said their final goodbyes to former Boston Bruins forward Jimmy Hayes who passed away August 23. 

What would Boston Bruins fans think if the Bruin acquired longtime nemesis P.K. Subban?

Does the Jesperi Kotkaniemi offer sheet really make sense for the Carolina Hurricanes?

That and more in the latest Boston Hockey Now Puck Links:

Boston Bruins

Former Boston Bruins winger and Dorchester, MA Jimmy Hayes left behind a tremendous legacy of giving and a passion for hockey that was rarely matched. His brother and Philadelphia Flyers forward Kevin Hayes had to give the eulogy for Jimmy and he absolutely nailed it. (BHN)

Great tribute by the lads at Spittin Chiclets to their fallen brother. (Spittin Chiclets)

Sadly this still needs to be said because the delusional anti-vaxer crowd continues to latch onto Hayes’ death to promote their baseless cause. Stop with your rumors and show some respect! (BHN)

Looks like a surprisingly large contingent of Boston Bruins fans wouldn’t mind New Jersey Devils and longtime Bruins nemesis PK Subban in Bruins uniform this season. I will write more on this and the potential of that becoming a reality either later today or tomorrow but I think it would be a great move on and off the ice for the Bruins.

If they don’t, will the Boston Bruins fan base be even more stressed? (BHN)

Finally, and back to Jimmy Hayes, given his Irish heritage and all the wonderful stories we’ve heard about how he lit up the room every time he walked in, leaving people laughing and happy I felt this song was a wonderful send-off to him. Rest easy Jimmy.



With 20 years of experience (SiriusXM NHL Network Radio, ESPNBoston, NESN,, etc.) covering the Bruins, the NHL, NCAA and junior hockey and more, Jimmy Murphy’s hockey black book is full of Hall of Famers, current players, coaches, management, scouts and a wide array of hockey media personalities that have lived in and around this great game. For 17 of his 20 years as a hockey and sports reporter, Murph covered the Bruins on essentially a daily basis covering their victorious 2011 Stanley Cup run and their 2013 run to the Final as well. Murphy has hosted national and local radio shows and podcasts and also has experience in TV as well.

No no no no no no no no no

No we do not want PK Subban, we hate him. Wouldn’t touch him with 100 foot pole. Nope. No.

Rick W Murray

Actually they’ll need to schuck some salary along the way Moore can go & maybe one other low level player. PK has lost a lot of his lustre over the years but he’s only 32, great wheels still can hit pretty good and can pop the biscuit in the basket I’d say yes.


Gloves are super glued on his hands. No accountability. Over rated player. Great guy off the ice. He can visit Boston anytime just not as a Bruin.

More garbage per usual

Yup, good guy off the ice. Expensive drama queen on the ice no thanks never want this guy on my team

Please stop

No PK, but we’ll take a 2C!

Nope I want nothing to do with this clown he is soft, expensive, sharply declining and full of drama. The opposite of a Boston Bruin. Get these headlines off my screen Jimmy nobody is saying he’s coming to Boston other than you. (Once again lol)


Subban is a slightly above average defenseman who is extremely over paid. I appreciate what he does in the community but the Bruins don’t need him.

William Mahoney

Suppan ? Are the Bruins that desperate to go after this “over the hill” player and they won’t go for Jack Eichel? Sweeney needs some help!

biff mc guzzle

sure, the Bs should obtain subban and from now on their style of play will be hit a guy from the blind side and then run like hell. if the fans like that, then subban will be a great addition.

Subban the turtle

Pretty much, It is a terrible fit. Subban should be nowhere near this team. The guy has literally made Jimmy Hayes death about himself.. he’s a social media narcissist. He is scared to fight, he’s aging, his production has fallen off a cliff, and he is absurdly overpriced. What’s not to love? As others have pointed out, we don’t even hate him because he played for Montreal. Nobody really cares about that anymore. We hate PK Subban because he’s unlikable and overpaid. Generous guy off the ice but probably the least “Bruins” player to ever exist. More shameless clickbait journalism… Read more »

Lololol clown

At least you’re admitting you’re a click bait hack Jimmy that’s really all I need 😂. I only click on these articles so I can do my part to let you know how hated you are in this business. You know it’s garbage and you have no shame so just want you to know that like 90% of the Bruins fan base thinks you are an idiot

Lololol clown

I will click on your articles *considerably* less just because you said that though. I’ve been talking to some actual intelligent Bruins fans lately and we could all use a break from your pathetic pandering. So enjoy the vacation Jim jam keep firing out those garbage headlines hope you realize every time you do the whole worlds laughing at you
