Michael Felger looks to the immediate future and 2004 and doesn’t see any players as definite locks to be gone with the exception of Ken Walter. Bob Ryan says No Dynasty. Peter May has a look at Bill Belichick who doesn’t like dynasty talk and realizes that 2004 has begun and every team is 0-0.

Karen Guregian believes that the reflective Ty Law will be back next year and perhaps longer.

He also reports on the damage done by college punks in Boston. Andrea Estes also reports that Mayor Menino lays some blame on the colleges.
Steve Bulpett reports that the Celtics may deal for Brent Barry.
The Bruins host the Thrashers at 7:00 PM. The game is on NESN.
