Early season Krejci appreciation



The reaction from more than a few that I would EVER post an appreciation thread for DK however, the consistent effort (points aside although fantastic) he has put in, shift in and out in the early stages has prompted me to come on here, eat just an appetizer of crow being so early in the year.

THIS is the way we all saw DK play from round 2 onward in that Cup year and I know the guy has it in him to do so more consistently and for at least the start of the year, I have to give props where they are due so..................David Krejci, props from a big time critic of yours, keep it up or I`ll be bouncing back to the other side

This is truely a year he should excel.

He has admitted in the past, that the long season wears on
him, and that there are long stretches that he just can't get
pumped for the games.

With this extra short season, hopefully he can stay motivated
all the way to hoisting the cup.

He has been our best forward so far, but I think it has a lot to do with Horton's play. Lucic and Krejci play so much better with him on the RW!

What a shock, a Krejci appreciation thread that only has two posts in about one hour...Lucky for us the brass holds DK in higher esteem then this fanbase..

He has been great this year. Much different player as well with another scorer on the line too... the Matrix!

Considering the number of disappearing acts made by Krejci in the past few years, this is a BOLD thread...

I noticed right from the first game that Krejci had a spring in his step that just wasn't there last year.

Krejci's a playmaker first and foremost, and he'll always look 100 times better when his wingers are putting the puck in the net.

The Bruins appreciate him even if some fans don't. Thank goodness.

And thank you ODAAT.

He leads the team in playoff scoring and is always at the top of the scoring lead for the Bruins and he still gets a bad rap. He is in many proposals for other players while being on the top line with great playmaking abilities.

The guy is under-rated.

Don't get me started with your " Krejci is a victim "...

Krejci IMO has been the best and most consistent forward on the Bruins so far. He is doing what he does best, which is getting the puck to his wings so they can score.

Krejci IMO when at his best is great at getting the defense to get caught up in the puck so they miss Lucic or Horton sneaking in to snipe a goal.

He's playing hard and last night his line was the only line that didn't look gassed and seemed to be playing in all parts of the ice.

Huh? He is no victim.

I am just saying for how good he is, he doesn't get the appreciation as say a Bergeron, Chara, Lucic, ect.

No, he doesn't because his history of disappearance acts are well documented. If the Bruins need/try to acquire a big time player, Krejci will become the first name to pop up.

I don't know, I have seen plenty of threads about Lucic dogging, but I have never understood the tendency for Bruins fans to think that they have to trash Krejci as if saying is plays well somehow questions Bergeron's abilities.

I mean do the Pens have 40 page threads dissing Malkin to build up Crosby or visa versa?

Krejci and Bergeron are both good although their strengths are different.

As long as he can remain .74 PPG in the regular season and a .80 PPG in the playoffs I will be happy.

Those are his current PPG in his career.

Everyone goes through slumps, look at Kessel (hahaha), being that high is very good in todays NHL.

I was just saying today that DK has been a pleasant surprise for me. I think the issue is people just assumed he would be the new "Thornton/Savard", so they take it out on him when he isn't top 10 in scoring. It's a ridiculous assumption and shouldn't be help against him.

I'm REALLY hoping he can use this short year to gain the consistency he's lacked so far early in his career. His skills are definitely not the issue. So far, so good and I have him/Lucic as our best forwards so far. Horton has been great as well.

It's like we have a #1 line

He really has looked great so far, thank goodness too considering how meh the rest of the forwards have been offensively

The great thing is the team just picked up 11 out of 12 points without the 2nd and 3rd lines playing up to their capabilities, the team oughta be pretty scary if they catch on and the rest stays consistent

Maybe we can deal Krejci to a team for a guy who lead his team in scoring during a play-off season Stanley Cup win? Is that the type of big game player you have in mind...

Krejci for Malkin sounds great to me

Very quietly a PPG, let's hope he stays consistent. The LKH line has been dominant, and he's the catalyst.

I would do this deal. I think Chia would get laughed at well probably after the Pens hung up the phone.
