I've said this dozens of times, but no winger on this team cleans up his own end better than BB. Maybe Dupuis and that's about it.
So ya, I want him out there on the fourth line protecting leads. I trust him way more than Glass who has poor anticipation of the play and gets caught out of position way too often.
BB has an uncanny ability to get to pucks in the slot and other dangerous areas, and quickly transition the play the other way. There is a reason the fourth line gets hemmed in its own end so damn often when Glass s it there.
It's not magic or luck that BB knows where to go to clean things up when it gets scrambly... it's anticipation and you can't teach it.
