I love Boston's bottom six. Kelly, Peverley, Campbel, Paille are great at their roles. Thornton is actually decent I guess, but I never could stand him. I don't like our third line at all, but it's not because I don't think the players are GOOD enough to get third line minutes; it's because it's just a spare parts line. It has no cohesiveness (I'm not talking about chemistry because that we obviously have to wait for). What is it's purpose? If it's offense, having Boyle center it doesn't really work and Pyatt can't help to make up for it because he's got no vision or passing skill either. If it's defense having Kreider on it is pointless and Pyatt's not anything special in that department either. As for our fourth line, I have no problem with any of the guys on it individually, but it's old and slow and that hurts us. Campbell and Paille are small, fast, sandpaper guys and they make a ton happen for the Bruins. Like I said, no problem with Rupp or Halpern individually, but they are just far outclassed for their roles by guys like Campbell and Pyatt, IMO.
