A Golden Opportunity

Former Bruin Rick Tocchet has been charged with financing a gambling ring whose connections included the New Jersey mafia, Wayne Gretsky, and possibly that insane guy who used to sell Cracker Jack in the Fleet Center. Several other former NHL players are suspected to have placed bets through the ring.

Unless, that is, Ulf Samuelsson, the man who drastically shortened Cam Neely's career with a cheap shot, is somehow involved. If there's the slightest chance that Ulfie could end up in Federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison in all of this, every Bruins' fans beer will taste a little better this winter. Here's hopin'.
