I like Lucic as a hockey player and would love him here but he acts like a tough guy way too often. If you're going to fight then fight, don't act tough.

Bruins get so pissy when they lose.

Roloson seems to be missing something he used to have. I have to agree with you rangers32815 that he doesn't exactly look like the sure thing his last two appearances.

Maybe I'm just nervous about things and being overly critical?

Anyways, game 7 coming up. Another nervewracker, no doubt.

Tbh I haven't been following this series, thought Tampa was up 3-2 in the series and was wondering why they weren't celebrating a little more

Julien is a funny guy. His head is going to explode for all the wrong reasons. Cool it dude, save your anger for Kaberle

Oh, Clode. He always looks so morose.

I love Guy Boucher though. He has a lot of talent, no doubt, but he's always putting his players in the best positions to succeed.

Yeah, Boucher looks like a guy thinking ahead and not letting his anxiety come out. Coaches are so disposable, but I think he has a good run ahead of him.

I'm amazed at how well he coaches that team. He has a solid system in place and has the team playing it well.

yeah Bolts! Yeah, Boucher said if Roloson had a bad game 5 and he had to come back for a must win in game 6, that would be a bad situation for him. Roloson (especially at his age) got some much needed rest.

PJ Stock making a good point about Julien using Chara in front of the net.

How would you feel taking a player with a 105 mile/hr shot and using him as a screen?

Seriously. How much difference would there be between having him as a screen and having Lucic there? Plus, I feel like Chara's size could even be a detriment to him there, as it would be a lot harder for him to maneuver in tight spaces. Look at St. Louis' goal. If he's 12' tall, he may not be able to get to that puck as quickly.

That's not even entering the issue of missing his bomb from the point.

Negligible, to me. Guy couldn't even get his shot through 99% of the time. He looked more involved in front of the net.

What Clode really needs to do is get Mark recchi the **** off the powerplay, or even the ice altogether. He's a trainwreck, yet he's playing him on the PP over their best player, Bergeron.

Yes, Lucic has better hands than Chara and is still a huge guy to contend with if you are a defender.

And Kaberle is the guy who is supposedly replacing Chara's presence on the PP blueline, except he is awful.
Julien is an idiot about this.

The 5 guys that should be on the Bruins PP unit:

Lucic in front, Horton in the slot, Krejci on the wall, Bergeron on the left half board, and Chara in the high slot. Not Mark Recchi.

If Julien wants to tilt things in the Bruins favour, he has to change things. That's the coaching that wins games.
I'm okay if he doesn't though. If he wants to waste a shot that makes defenders change their plans, it's okay with me.
Recchi is peripheral to it all, in my opinion. He is one of those vets who can make a big difference with his smarts, but their PP engine is sputtering, nothing that truly demands respect is coming from the point.

Would love to see TB win this series and then beat Vancouver to once again deny the cup going back to Canada. That would be awesome, twice in a decade TB stops the cup's return to Canada.

You are never 100% sure where you have the Canucks, but maybe 90%.

And if they do not collapse, they ought to run over Tampa. Like the Canucks have the elite offensive punch in the Sedins, and they also have a deep, mature and strong roster. Tampa as a team gets these stretches in games were they look like a "young" team. Hedman and Stamkos is really young, so its not strange. But they aren't as solid as the Canucks.

Vancouver vs Boston might be a interesting match-up. Like a Chara vs the Sedin's matchup over a 7 game series seems like a big X-factor. Vancouver could run over them easily, but if Chara gets a hold of the Sedin's, it could slow Vancouver down.

Didn't say they could, just said I would like to see it.

Any one of the teams left can play well enough to win the cup or collapse and crap the bed. No sure thing this season although Vancouver is closest. If the Sedin's vanish again or Luongo cracks under the pressure they are very beatable.

I accidentally clicked on the Pens board and decided to look around a little..

Apparently they all really hate Dubinsky.

Maybe it's because he called Crysby a crybaby.

yes i agree. look at Teddy Purcell. see what happens when a player doesnt get ice time with one team gets dealt and gets more ice time..



look what happened when Prust came to the Rangers.


Kings must be regretting trading Teddy Purcell


51 pts with his first full season with the Bolts. had 22 pts in parts of 2 seasons with the Kings. yes the Bolts have more talent but he actually gets alot more ice time....


great trade for the Bolts even at the time it was a great move...

Julien is dunce but this is one of the few adjustments he has made 105 mph slap shot has helped at all in the PO's for them...they are at 8% PP eff of every playoff team only the Rangers and Pit have a lower PP %

In my opinion, the two best teams since the lockout are the '10 Blackhawks and this year's Canucks. I'd say the Canucks are better, too, because of pure depth and a far superior goalie. If they don't win the cup, I wouldn't be surprised, because they certainly have their inconsistent moments. At the same time, they're much better talent wise than Boston and Tampa Bay.
