Recchi extra forward and Marchand unfortunately will be sent down

i love the look of that forward group
I could go for that. I've been thinking moving Bergeron to the wing might be one way to solve the logjam at centre if they decide to try to re-sign Savard. Bergy played RW when he broke in to the league, and he was fine. He just might be the #1 RW we've been looking for. If he could shoot.

Sitting Recchi bothers me though. I know he's been looking slow out there, but he's a well-respected veteran and a leader. That's a tough one to make. Then again, they bought out Murray...
Maybe just use Rex sparingly, maybe on the PP, to set up in front?

Paille: 5 points in 7 games. PK has been perfect since he's been a Bruin.

The best thing? All 5 points were from assists.

If Daniel Paille scores 16 or more goals this season, the Bruins will send a conditional 2010 fourth-round pick to the Sabres along with their third-round pick. If Paille doesn't hit the 16-goal mark, the Bruins will only send Buffalo their third-round pick.

Might have been best effort of the year, stiffling D. Rask was well protected by D and wasn't tested all that much BUT, I really love how that kid plays - so calm and quiet and solid, he really truly could be a gem. Cam Ward type, frankly maybe a better athelete than ward - and that's a high damn compliment cause ward is a damn good goalie.

What can I say about Sobotka that hasn't been said, tremendous game. I always liked him but I think there might be even more there than I thought, what a game. Needless to say, unless he really regresses, he ain't going anywhere, regardless of who comes back and when.

Chara's best game of year, way to go Z.

Really like Paille, just what we needed.

Wheels gets a lot of knocks here, and he wasn't himself for a while BUT when you get flogged for 4 goals in 11 games you know you are talking about a damn talented player.

Ference ain't doug harvey but his game has settled.

Morris is very impressive.

Any negatives can be ignored for now, good game by B, let's get the blueshirts manana.

Nice to see a full Julien-style defensive effort.

Good to see the return of Chara.

Glad Sobotka got some results for his hard work.

Ference looking better and better, hope he stays healthy.

Paille got 2 assists without ever controlling the puck. He hits, he skates, plays good postionally, kills penalties. But it looks like he has hands like Yelle (or Milbury).

Before the 3rd period, looked like the Bruins who weren't afternoon players were Ryder, Krejci, Morris and Wheeler. Wheeler turned it around, Morris settled down and Ryder ran away with worst player honors for the day.

Edmonton announcers were raving about the Bruins work ethic.

Next day thoughts.....................

Chara was the biggest standout in this game. The boys continued their good work, but he upped his game a notch. And then some.

I think much like Aaron Ward developed a his forearm shiver move, Chara should continue to develop this "shove" move. Just test the waters a few times early to see what the refs will call, also to get them used to seeing this type of dominance and strength upclose. Then take advantage of any smaller player as much as you can from behind.

He's a big guy who's unable to over take a player who's gotten a step on him in tight around the lower boards. Send em flying as they skate away. It seemed to work quite well last night.

i think the two biggest things missing from the B's in the early games are back.

1) Physicality - Sturm, sob, chara, etc all picked up their hitting. Begin, thornton, bitz continued their physicality that they have displayed all the games so far.

2) Effort. Fighting for the puck, great dump ins, great puck rotation in the offensive zone. Great nuetral zone play, The jersey & Edmonton games are great indications that this team is finally on a great path
