Seguin has been my biggest dissapontment. When is this kid going to finally carry the team. Still very early

I truly believe we need three lines who are actual threats to score if we're going to see our team successful. Kelly and Peverley are driving me nuts. Get Soderberg in there, or juggle the lines...
Agree.

I'd rather see Jagr rested until he can fill in on the top 2 lines than have to suffer through another shift on the 3rd line with Pevs and Kelly.

He's being completely misused.

I agree. I expected him to be much further ahead in his development by now. The guy has all the skills but very questionable hockey sense. Has to slow things down and create time for plays to develop. Takes way to many low % shots & shies away from the dirty areas to much.

I think the Tyler Seguin version we see now would be much more dangerous with a guy like Krejci. Krejci can possess the puck & allow Seguin to utilize his speed to get open. But clearly CJ doesn't see it that way.

I am not saying Seguin doesn't have the skills. But the thing that he lacks the most is his hockey sense.

The top two lines should be:

Marchand-Bergeron-Jagr
Lucic-DK-Seguin

I dont really care that Horton has 2 goals, I still dont think he is playing that well overall. Putting Jagr on that line gives you a great puck possession line.

Clode is married to his top 2 lines and won't even think about switching them unless the team goes down 3-1. Jagr doesn't fit in the bottom 6, and it's clear the Bruins just will not get the PP opportunities sufficient for Jagr to impact a game with his PP skills.
Agreed. Its like Claude and Chia never talked about the plan. He should have gone after Clowe then.

Marchand has already showed chemistry with Jagr and Bergeron/Marchand are money. I know that it's meant to be a more defensively responsible line, but Seguin isn't that much further along than Jagr in that respect.

Looch and Seguin have ALWAYS looked good together too.

Everyone wanted Krejci/Jagr combo, but to me... This is the stronger configuration for the top six.

Soderberg - Kelly - Horton

Not a bad third line...

Agreed. Hope we stay alive long enough to see it.

Er, alive in the race, that is.

I think lots of things will have to be considered depending on how the rest of the playoffs go... Including the fate of Clode Julien.
Lucic will make 6 million by himself next year

Lucic and Boston's first to Colorado for Seth Jones

Soupy's a gamer and brings effort to every shift. If might pay off with Soderberg and Horton, if they can find any kind of chemistry.

I think Jagr is more talented than Iginla, but I think Iginla would've been a better fit with the Bruins' roster than Jagr has been.

Selfish jackass.

Whoa, for real?

The biggest problem with this organization for decades has been its lack of respect for people who can do amazing things in front of the net and SCORE. Yeah, much better to have passers fail to go tape-to-tape and turn it over or David Krejcis that stop time to playmake the hell outta the puck only to pass it to someone who can't find the back of the net.

Selfless as a practice kills this team when it comes to scoring goals.

Not sure it would make a difference to any but the fourth. Campbell deserves more minutes than Kelly, but I'm not sure it would make much difference to that third unit.

But Thornton plays better with Campbell than he does with anyone else. I think Merlot would suffer far more than the third line would benefit.

Kelly did come back from a fairly significant break. His game being off isnt that shocking.

Probably right ... Keep Merlot intact. No sense messing with something that ain't broke.

FWIW the "selfish jackass" remark was aimed at Iginla for screwing us over and lying about his trade list, not Jagr's style.

Agree with this.

That 20 goal year was a outlier, any Ottawa or Bruins fan could tell you that, i'd prefer to keep Peverley around over Kelly but at this point i'd seriously look at getting rid of both, niether can do much of anything offensively (in Kelly's defense he did get hurt) and for the money they're bringing in they need to at least return to 10/11 form to justify it.

They're probably be replaced with someone else who gets bought out

If the break was mid season of last year that would be a better excuse for him because he hasn't done much since then.

That would be such a sweet top 9.
But ideally I think Söderberg should be playing center with Kelly taking the face-offs.

Call me a Chris Kelly apologist but I think he's been pretty good this season as long as Peverley is not a wing on his line.

meh? Bergy had 10 goals with all the PP time, Kelly had 3 with none and 3rd line time. I dunno what to say. Lucic 7, Pev 6, Campbell 4.

The team as a whole hardly scored a thing.
