3 real losses at home this year, 8 real losses on the road. Small sample, but it's something.

One plus is that 5 of the last 7 games are home games. Bruins have benn a very good home team this season.

Also, Bergeron is coming back soon. Yeti is coming and my fingers are crossed that Marchand returns before the playoffs.

imagine if Kreji and Jagr played together on the reg. Also notice Jagr pointing to Kreji to tell Seguin to pass it to him, gotta love that about Jagr. Even when he doesn't have the puck he is telling the players where the best place to pass is and he has been doing that all year

You're right, Peverley has been incredibly soft the past few games, he's got no strength on the puck, and we could go on from there about Hortons dissapearing act or whatever, but I'll spare the negativity and the time.

Not sure what you're trying to get at with the pink hat comment there bud, and I won't take it as a direct attack from you and more to some others, but I've been here just like you have, and have been around to know what a real struggling Bruins team is like to watch . . . Paging Dave Lewis . . .
This 1000%. Lucic has been beyond bad. Bad enough he is not scoring or hitting, but his turnovers have been horrible. He needs to sit

Went to the game last night...a couple thoughts:

1) Jagr is unbelievable in offensively. You can see why he is a legend. Pretty one dimensional though...he doesn't really bring it going the other way (which is fine, since everybody else he plays with does)

2) Bartkowski I thought looked good.

3) Campbell is a real treat to watch away from the puck. Does all the little things right.

4) Daugavins looked strong out there. Fast and responsible.

5) Chara was very iffy today, although he did throw a couple huge checks that shook the glass and won his fight.

6) Tuukka was fine today. Justin Peters was just playing one of the better games of his ****** career.

You are a wise man then. I'll take it a step further: home ice doesn't mean crap. We've lost game 7's at home to Carolina, Philly and Washington. 8th seeds like the Kings win the Cup despite having to play on the road every series, etc. It's just been proven playoff after playoff that home ice doesn't matter.

I'm much more worried about what matchup we get round 1 than what our seeding is. Please avoid the Rangers...

He's going to cost us a pretty hefty price tag. He's not one of those guys that will sign on at a discount for a Cup run. He'd make a perfect Horton replacement, but I don't know if the cap room will be there to sign him.

As a jagr fan, i would be happy seeing him back in Boston, and i wouldn't be surprised if he wants back too. I doubt he likes the reputation he is getting as a guy bouncing around the league, he would play for 4 teams in around a years time, that is crazy. He likes it in Boston so if they are willing to pay him i'm sure he would stay. He is getting significant ice time and pp time, the things he wants most. Let's just hope he stays healthy throughout these last games and does well, who knows what can happen in the future.

I am "JAGRLOVER" from Kladno (you can read my first post about following all his career), but I donīt want him to play 21 min./game in Boston. He is great and he still dominates on the ice, but such TOI means that the team is weak without him. I thought he joined one of the best teams in the league after leaving Dallas and I was very surprised to read about poor play especially by Horton, Lucic here. I remembered the team winning SC and I thought this was the same. I watched the game vs. OTT (3:2) and I was enthused by the first period (shots 20:17, a lot of skills, millions passes - after seeing struggle of the players from Dallas, who coulnīt give good pass). This team was the right for Jagr I said. I expected some problems in first games and TOI 15 - 17 min. but I thought Bruins would be OK. It looks, that Jagr is OK but the team is not so strong. I was very surprised.
JAGR CAME TO HELP NOT TO SAVE - it should be carved into the stone. It is not good sign, if he dominates so much. This is not JAGRTEAM, these are Boston Bruins. It would be not good sign, if win or lost would depend only on Jagrīs finishing abilities. Boston had over 50 points before he came. JAGR MUST BE PUZZLE PIECE. ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT BUT STILL PIECE. IMO Jagr gets so much space in games, because the others clear it. He is big legend but sometimes it is disadvantage. when your playmates are not able to play they best, because they play with man from their posters. (The best Jagrīs teammate was Nylander - little bit but still healthy selfish, great on puck and HE WAS ABLE TO PLAY HIS OWN WITH JAGR AND TELL JAGR OFF BAD PLAY) I hope Bergeron and Marchand will change a lot in team after coming back. The team needs it.

Ive been saying this for a while. I think that's exactly the thought process. They think they can turn it kn at will.

Seidenberg in fact did exactly that last year. Guy is a proven money player IMO. We'll see about Horton.

It's all good my man, we are about to add 3 top 6er's in the next week or two. Then Jagr won't have to be the focal point of the offense.

Is he the only forward who turns the puck over? When the B's send the puck up the boards, you have a pinching Dman right on our wing, w/ a backchecking forward taking away the seam nearly boxing them in. Paille coughed it up all night, Peverley, everyone. Half the time their only play is back to a Dman. Who find another way to cough it up. Like aerial passes against the boards no bruin has any chance of controlling.

Worse is when they reverse it hard around the opposite boards. As our wings standing in the box at the circle have even less chance to get to that puck before a pinching Dman does. Our turnovers go above and beyond Lucic. But hey, win a cup and you get pink hats flowing in here w/ all the answers.

This has been going on for some time and since PC failed to address this by bringing in a puck moving defenseman are forwards come playoff time, if were going to have any success are going to be counted on to go back in their own end and lug the puck up the ice.

Thats Seguin, Jagr, Kelly, Marchand, and Peverly, even Bergy and Krejci guys with speed or as in Jagr's case exceptional one on one skill. Maybe this is why PC has loaded up with depth offensively as there's going to be a need for it. I'm sure PC tried to get another top 4 d-man but other teams aren't so willing to give them up and in his defense this is the next best thing as that and Tim Thomas was successfull in 2011.

Well my hope is they let Horton walk so I wouldn't mind re-signing Jagr.

I still want to see Jagr with Krejci.

Seguin back with Bergeron and Horton on the 3rd. Right now the black hole is at left wing (we have a whole bunch of bottom 6 left wingers) but Soderberg and Marchand hopefully returning should help this.

I agree. There is so much pressure on the home team to try to win the first two games, whereas the road team just has to win one of the first two games to be in good shape to win the series.
Many years ago when the B's played in the Garden, I liked when the Bruins had home ice advantage, but it doesn't seem like such an advantage nowadays.

In case of a tie, the first tiebreaker is ROWs and the Leafs already have one more of these than the Bruins.

It's fair to say that the Leafs would probably win the tiebreaker.

Barring off-season trades, the Bruins only have a bit more than $6.9M to sign 6 players for next year, including 2 goalies.

Rask will take quite a bite of that.

So as of now, they can't afford Jagr.

PS: Make it $11M to sign 7 players, as Savard wasn't on LTIR this year and could be next year.

Would be fun to find a team to take Pevs off our hands. He is simply way over paid.

Otherwise the discussion becomes more extreme....dealing Looch.

I would deal Pevs before Looch. Looch is still young.

One reason Daugavins might be worth keeping on-he is decent bottom 6 winger who we can pay as a bottom 6 winger.

Yea, I agree on that...I am sure we all would.
