Not just pure, highlight reel type hits, but consistent, powerful, effective hits that knock guys off the puck? Seidenberg

He never loses in a collision . And you can always rely on him...........The guy's a Volkswagon

I like Boychuck in open ice sometimes.Not seen much that in long time,Seids is consistant but I bet Lucic is one who gets it done most times.My 2 cents

A slow hit with out much power from Chara would have to hurt, but I think the best technique is from Boychuck. I think Lucic is also good.

Paille has good technique and skates hard just not sure how much power is behind it.

After the Neil hit, Boychuk has not looked for the big hit anymore. Frustrating.

Lucic AINEC.

I don't care that Chara or Boychuk *could* hit guys more/harder. Either you do or you don't and they don't do it enough. McQuaid hits to hurt more than either of those guys now in significantly less minutes.


Personal opinion, Lucic needs someone to help share the load more on the forecheck hitting.

What about Dennis Seidenberg?

Lucic is the only forward on the top three lines who consistently takes the body; the second and third line albeit highly skilled are easily near the bottom of the league in overall contact and wearing down defenses.

The one guy who has the speed and outstanding TECHNIQUE to unload is Knight. He is an elite body checker. Hopefully he is on the ice in the next week or so gets some games in and can help in April. I see Shaw, Zucker, Henrique, Gallagher, on and on, all players I really like but imo are no better or worse than JK.

The kid is a bowling ball on skates and whether he ends up top 6 or top 9 he is going to be valuable- and after watching the Bruins piss me off over and over by not doing any serious wear and tear on opposing D's I've had it,

I'm openly rooting for Bourque, but damn it- someone, anyone, Buehler? needs to start getting in and causing turnovers and putting the body on the defense.

Knight will be outstanding at this. They been winning but when the bullets fly starting May we shall see....also to deal Spooner or Koko or Subban for a rental is just bleeping moronic. Talk about fast food mentality. Trade Spooner, trade Knight, trade them all if you want- FINE but if it is not in a package for a long term top 9 or top 4 defense they can fit into the system without losing other key contributors I'm good.

You want rentals you bundle guys like Joe Colborne with draft picks- firsts and conditionals, but you trade Malcolm Subban or Khokhachev and watch these guys play for years and years long after Iginla or Alfredsson are gone.

Dallas traded Iginla for Nieuwendyk and I clearly remember quite a few Dallas fans even with the Cup they won lamenting that deal- there is a 10 years history on HF you can go find this stuff

and Calgary while on the subject traded Brett Hull for Rob Ramage and won a Cup....great trade off. not

our own Bruins probably would have had 5-7 Cups in the 70's had they kept the 3rd and 4th overall picks in Reggie Leach and Rick McLeish in deals for veterans. Bad deals very bad

be careful what you wish for- there is no guarantee the Bruins cant win as is or with minor tweaking, and there is no guarantee they will with Iggy or Alfredsson.

If Calgary takes a Colbourne like package fine- but you include players who have a high probability for NHL good careers its just impulse emotion raging shortsightedness

I keep reading your posts on Knight and clearly he`s a kid you love, I hope he can get and stay healthy so I get to see what you have commented, and others like Dom have about this kid and how he plays when 100% healthy, I smell fan favourite if he can

Exactly. This is what I had been saying all last year when most were still in Cup hang-over, 'everything is dandy' mode.

Give me another guy (top 9) who can hustle in on the forecheck and cause turnovers and bad passes by guys with their ears up. Knight is unique because he can both cause those kind of turnovers and also capitalize on them. He just hasn't got enough pro hockey in under his belt right now to look at him as any kind of realistic option.

Seids doesn't hit as much as Looch, but when he does they're always massive.

FWIW, those are called crampons. As far as hitting, I's have to say Looch. He makes player change how they go after a puck. Hon mentions to Seidenberg and Boychuk. I give Thornton a "A" for effort in this department, but about a "C-" for aim.

Boychuck is good at open ice hits that while rare are always memorable. Sieds is solid not a huge hitter, but can throw his weight around. Thornton does try hard, but he is a step behind and will often run into the boards. Chara will occasionally thow a big hit, but most of the time its more of a push.

The best pure hitter on this team is Lucic no doubt. I cannot comprehend how anyone can think differently. Not only does he throw the most hits, he throws the biggest hits, and the hardest hits. Watch how many Dmen go out of their way, and often make a bad play to avoid a Lucic hit. You cannot say that about anyone else on this team.

I think ODAAT was asking for the best open ice hitter. At least that's what he said a couple of posts into the first page.
Not many Bruins fans should dispute the fact that Lucic is the best and most willing hitter on the team.
