Soderberg--Kelly--___________
Paille--Campbell--Thornton

Chara--Hamilton

We have an insane amount of L shooting forwards.

I bet the third line will be up for grabs by the kids, Smith might end up there. I don't know which line Eriksson would play on although with his defensive skills, you might want to keep him away from Bergeron to make sure the 1st line is much better defensively. As for the second line, I'm going to say Chiarelli convinces Alfredsson to join Boston this year. :yo:

Alberta_OReilly_Fan 07-04-2013 03:51 PM

if alfredsson isnt going to get sweet talked into joining the team then we pull the trigger on a deal for ales hemsky surrendering something like a second round pick and one of our b level foward prospects that might add a little grit to edmonton's bottom 6. Hemsky isnt going to get much more than that and he will be getting moved... so bring him in to play with krecji.. let eriksson form the very best 2 way line in hockey with bergeron... and then hope for the best that the third line works out for us

i think the first and second lines are as good/better after these moves... the defense remains almost unchanged... i think we are easily one of the top 3 favorites to win the cup and we do have caproom/prospects to load up at the deadline in case the third line doesnt come around

Playing on the top pair =/= being the 2nd best defenseman

Chara and Seidenberg never play together in the regular season, and Dougie played with Chara most of the early part of last year too. It's kind of an on-the-job training, Chara makes the kids look better and covers for their mistakes as they learn the NHL game.

As for the lines, I'd put Eriksson with Marshmont and Bergeron, then hope to land an Alfredsson or other free agent (maybe Iginla even though I hate his guts) for the top line. For line 3, I wouldn't be opposed to bringing back Ryder if he's cheap.

Loui will play with Bergy and marchy and form the leagues best shutdown line. We sign a free agent to play with Krejci

Agree with this. The big question will be the #3 RW. Don't have the space for two free agent forwards.

I'd like Ryder for the Krejci line. Assuming Alfie isn't an option.

Shaun 07-04-2013 04:04 PM

Sign Alfie

Iginla?

With this new found relief in cap space, the Bruins have options...

One of them could be Jarome Iginla..

Would he be welcome here? If you can't beat em, join em?

Lucic Krecji Iginla
Marchand Bergeron Louie
Soda Kelly __________
Merlot

Having 4 D set in Chara, Seids, Boychuck, McQuaid, and having Hamilton, Krug, Bartski, and Morrow all knocking on the door is a GREAT place to be.

So are Lucic and Marchand. We'll have to see how Claude decides to approach it.

Some Stars fans were saying he can play RW.

Lucic - Krejci -
Marchand - Bergeron - Eriksson
Kelly - Soderberg - Knight (?)
Paille - Campbell - Thornton
Caron

Chara - Boychuk
Seids - Hamilton
Krug - McQuaid
Bart

Rask
Svedberg

I wouldn't discount one of the kids from the Stars making the team next year...

Kiss My Rask 07-04-2013 04:26 PM

He plays RW too

Fraser could be 3rd line LW --but who switches to the right?

Fire Julien 07-04-2013 04:31 PM

L-K-Eriksson
M-B-Alfredsson
S-K-Fraser
P-C-Camara
Thornton

Chara-Hamilton
Seidenberg-Morrow
Krug-Boychuk

Watch for the Yeti 07-04-2013 04:36 PM

I cant think of who's going to play on Krejci line on the right side. I'd love Alfy to play on our 3rd line, but I don't think he's a 1st liner.

Eriksson should play with Bergeron. They are incredibly similar, and I think it would be amazing.

Lucic would benefit from Eriksson's speed and puck retrieval in the neutral zone. No reason now for not heading straight to the net with the floater Horton gone.

BruinsPortugal 07-04-2013 04:41 PM

Chia said he wants a shooter on the krejci line. Eriksson will be amazing with Bergeron, claude is already having wet dreams.

I wouldnt mind Iginla, Alfie looks to be target.

Only question i have is:Are they done, or will trade a defenseman?
