30. For The Fans Download

Could TD Garden possibly let some fans back in this year? Can anyone bring up the idea without a backlash?

The question is high on the minds of Matt Dolloff and Ty Anderson, who are in disbelief of the idea that the Patriots could start next season in an empty Gillette Stadium or that the Bruins and Celtics may not let fans into the Garden until after the summer. So many other arenas have figured out how to safely shuffle fans in and out, so why can’t New England? Not to mention all the other businesses that are restricted or closed. Most importantly: is there room for a nuanced discussion about this at all?

But beyond the COVID crisis, Matt and Ty have plenty of hockey to talk about. So they spend over an hour discussing the Bruins and the National Hockey League. The temporary realignment of the division should keep some of its features for next season. Why haven’t Jake DeBrusk or Anders Bjork taken steps forward? Are either of them going to be an answer for the Bruins’ top-6? Because they need to be. Ty believes the Bruins could be planning to sign a big-time free agent … in 2022. The guys also get into the Flyers and the challenge they present for the Bruins in their division, as the teams get ready to face off on Thursday. Jakub Voracek launched an epic burn at a reporter that he doesn’t seem to like very much.

It sounds like they’re about to wrap up, but Matt and Ty take one last detour into the NFL. Matt is finally rooting for Tom Brady and the Buccaneers to win the Super Bowl, but he wasn’t necessarily rooting against them. Ty is hoping the Patriots really do load up for the 2021 season, considering the cap space that they’re projected to have.
