Bruins Owner Jeremy Jacobs Addresses Media, Fans

BOSTON, MA – Boston Bruins Owner Jeremy Jacobs addressed the media prior to Saturday night's season opener against the New York Rangers at TD Garden for the first time since the NHL and the NHLPA agreed to a new Collective Bargaining Agreement on January 12.

“Last week we announced that we reached an agreement on a new CBA and tonight the Bruins are back on the ice," Mr. Jacobs said in his opening statement, on the Black & Gold kicking off their 2012-13 campaign.

"When the puck drops, we put the last four months behind us and celebrate the return of hockey to Causeway Street. Like all of you I wanted nothing more than to have the season start on time in October. Make no mistake - it should have. The fact that we were unable to reach an agreement until just recently is a disappointment."

"I want to personally apologize to our fans and others who depend on this team for their livelihood," Mr. Jacobs continued. "But these are just words. The best way to make it up to you is to play hard and win."

Mr. Jacobs went on to talk about the experience of the Bruins roster, and their capability to bring a winning team to the ice every night.

"I said last year after our playoff exit that the Stanley Cup is on loan. I really meant it," he remarked.

"We have a strong team and one that I believe will be very competitive this season. I expect us to contend for the Cup. We have 48 games in 96 days before the playoffs."

"It's no longer a marathon - it's truly a sprint."

That sprint is sure to bring exciting hockey to the Boston faithful, and Mr. Jacobs referred to the team's desire to win another Stanley Cup.

"But our advantage - and it's a significant one - is that we know how to win," said Jacobs.

"I remember asking our players a few years ago how many of them had won the Cup. Just a few of our players raised their hand. Before the start of the last season I asked the same question. Nearly everyone raised their hand."

"We want this for our team. We want this for our fans. We know what victory feels like and we want that feeling again. I can think of no better way to bring our team back together than to focus on our shared goal of winning another Stanley Cup for Boston, New England and Bruins fans around the world.”
