I think he fits in just fine on that line. There's no better option right now that's available.

He hasn't been good but he hasn't been terrible. If Caron can't take that spot from him once he's healthy, it's time to trade him.

I don't really see the hate on Bourque. He's not lighting the lamp but he's also not actively screwing the Bruins. He's a 3rd line winger.. I'd say Peverley was equally ineffective today. Kelly was too until his penalty killing ability late in the 3rd and OT.. completely redeemed himself there.

Bourque was okay. If there's one thing he's good at, it's carrying the puck through the neutral zone. I'd go as far as saying he's one of the better forwards on the team able to do that. He's ineffective in the offensive zone because he gets pushed off the puck a little too easily but we're also only 2 games into the season. I'd give it at least 5 more before I start begging for Lane MacDermid, Sauve or Spooner.

1. The make up call happened earlier with the incidental high stick

So which is it? A penalty every time or only when there's a makeup call to be had?

I totally agree with bruinsportugal I could not be happier with Hamilton so far . I also agree on Bourque but its early . I know you boys hate pouliot but bourque even if he improves wont do all the things that guy did well. Bourque could get plenty of points though and I know thats what a lot of you look at. krecji looks great to me ---hes playing with two guys that are showing some rust. Even though I say that im actually very happy with Horton hes five times better than after his last return, far less rusty than I expected him to be. I think the Bergy line might be carrying us soon---they are all skating great brad maybe a little rusty in a couple of areas . Defense I agree Mcquaid is a bit rusty but johnson isnt a big enough improvement not to let mcquaid work through it. Seids looked awesome to me game 1-- hopefully hes not out long . Rask looks very good but I cant say fantastic. The rest Id say good not great not rusty. Oh ya Paille looks very good to me.

Yeah I forget what exactly the PP lines are but I'm pretty sure Peverley isn't on any of the lines.

I think the Bourque experiment on the PP is because of his success in Providence. But it's not transitioning to the NHL so I would replace him with someone who can protect the puck in the corners if they are getting threatened.

Agree with you there

As much as I don't lke him, Rolston is better.

I totally agree with this.

Krejci is skating well and passing well, and that line has two guys who are still getting into game shape.

Horton IMO looks less rusty right now than he did when he came back from the Rome hit and while he looks Rusty, he is skating hard and looks very hungry. He is going to score soon.

Bergeron wasn't dominating at the dot like he usually does, but he was really playing well and I think that line is going to be lighting things up soon-although I suspect other teams who like to line match may be looking to shut that line down, which may provide more opportunity for the Krejci line to score.

To put McQuaid in context, he not only had two surgeries to remove his blood clot, they entailed removing one of his ribs and part of a muscle in his neck. For him to be playing in the NHL at this moment is astounding.

I'm not arguing that some more time might not be beneficial, but he deserves all the credit in the world for making it back on the ice that quickly.

Agreed. Within the organization he's the best choice right now. I don't think he's been all that terrible either, not great and that line needs to get going but Bourque hasn't been atrocious.

And if the Bruins consider free agent route I like Daymond Langkow more than options like Rolston.

Kudos to him and hockey players are awesome when it comes to that.. but he/the Bruins might want to think about having him rest a game or two (assuming Seidenberg comes back next game). Love the effort but having him trip over himself and just be fairly ineffective in general will bite the team in the ass sooner or later

Obviously not really an option with Seids down though.

Chara has been beast mode physically so far this year. Love seeing him get mean. Rather see Hamilton with chara but when your facing a team with a great top line like the rangers....I understand if Hamilton gets paired with Sieds so Chara & Boychuck can concentrate on what they have to do. Baby steps.

Just in from the game.

I will take the win.

I haven't read through the thread yet and Sports radio only had football on on for the drive home ...What is up with Seids ? I heard "lower body" ???

Johnson did well.

Did anyone see what Marchy did to Byfuglien?

After a shift on the way back to the bench Marchy skated up to Buff and puffed his cheeks out like a blowfish...He did the a couple of times. I guess Marchy was telling him he noticed the extra pounds

They played better against the Rangers but 2 points is good.

Left work early and plowed through on the PVR.

The Jets guys did not mention Seids, I REALLY hope it is just "day to day" and he is not rushed back. Today showed me we have issues on defense without him, he's a rock.

Adam McQuaid looks like a disaster area. I think he should have a seat, get healthy, and let Johnson play (who I thought looked alright).

Dougie Hamilton is going to be very, very, very good.

We hit how many posts? I counted 4 but stopped counting.

We are getting a bucket of chances, they will go in soon enough. We are going to throw up a touchdown within 2 weeks.

Seguin was flying today.

Anybody still want to trade David Krejci? He is motivated, skating hard and doing everything well. Without him in this lineup we have a massive hole (even IF you move Seguin to center).

There was a lot of edge to this game. The Jets are a tough match up for us. They play a grind it out, four line game and they have some size up front. They are a TOTAL pain in the ass to play against and I can't wait for them to move to the West.

Slightly glowing review of the Jets aside, I think with as few bounces we win this game 6-1.

I don't disagree, just wanted to give McQuaid credit. I think some people just aren't fully informed as to how serious that surgery was.

They are calling Seids "day to day". Probably a strain.

To be honest, I'd let him take as long as he wants. Rangers on Wednesday and the Islanders on Friday. We can let him sit a week and he would only miss those two games.

I want to heap credit on him because he is playing his heart out. That said, he is putting himself into dangerous situations in my opinion. If Seids plays Wednesday I'd sit Adam until he is "right".

Seids is reportedly day to day and they hope to have him back for the next game.

That is just too funny about Marchand. Y'know, he may be a pest, but he's got stones. So many so-called agitators hide behind the officials. Not him.

5....yep, it should have been a blow out....but the bruins were not at their best. Too many defensive lapses.
