B's 4th line

I dont know if anyone else feels this way but i thought in todays preseason game against the rangers the 4th line played excellent. Tenkrat hustled the whole time and i was impressed with the way they played on the ice. At times when the rest of the team was slowing down and playing horrible, it seemed the 4th line was the only bright spot. Im excited if this continues, because we'll have great depth. Kessell played ok today, besides the mishap in front of the net, and i think Savard's passing was amazing but his defense lacked tremendously. Overall they played an up and down game with wayyyy too many penalties, but come opening night i think they'll be ready to go. if the 4th line plays as well as they did today, i think we'll be in for a much improved bruins season. considering theres no other place to go then up.

p.s. the new scoreboard at the garden is excellent!

Tenkrat looked pretty good. I think the 4th line should be Mowers, definitely Hoggan, he was a wrecking ball today, and Tenkrat and Statsny can alternate. Maybe Brookbank every now and then if we need a goon in the lineup.

Does anyone have any pictures or specs?

What makes it stand out from other scoreboards?

As much as I really hate to mention this (again), we could have had a fourth line of Stastny centering Ruutu and Petrovicky for very reasonable coin. This would have been a hard-working, hard-hitting line that would easily be capable of 10 quality minutes per game.

Instead we have a glut of basic crap to try and pick enough players from to simply fill out a roster instead of three guys that could have been counted on before the start of camp to get the job done.-- I liked what I saw from Hoggan yesterday, but he couldn't even become a regular on last years terrible St. Louis team. Lewis little pet (Mowers) couldn't fully crack the Wings lineup- ever- and he's now 33 years old and past his peak. (whenever that was). Tenkrat is simply crap that Chia took a chance on. Despite his goal it's obvious that he's a waste and the only reason he's still on the roster is that Chiapet brought him here himself and doesn't want to look like an idiot. (too late)

I don't understand throwing millions around and then not throwing a few hundred thousand towards a quality fourth line so we could at least have a possibility of "rolling four lines".

The HD screens are probably 12x18 feet. The video quality is like watching your screen at home with little distortion based on your viewing angle. So essentially you have 4 screens at right angles that show the play in realtime. Then above those screens is a circular ringed scoreboard about 4 feet high with time, scores, etc. If you are sitting in the upper bowl, you'll have a much better view up close if the play is hard to see.

My only criticism is that time left on penalties was pretty miniscule.

Re: 4th line. I do like Hoggan and Mowers. I'd like to see Hoggan make the club, and Mowers is a shoo-in anyhow.

While I do not share your disdain of Mowers and Hoggan (I actually think Mowers is highly underrated; I like what I've seen from him a LOT)... There is no way that our fourth will be as good as the one you jones for.

It seems like an ongoing philosophy with whoever is running the show that we sign fringe NHLers to fill out the roster, and this is lousy strategy. If we could ever throw out a fourth that resembled the one you are suggesting, the entire team would benefit more than we could ever realize.

If we are using the strategy of 2 scoring lines, a checking line, and a fourth... Then the fourth's duty should be to go out, and cause havoc... I don't see ours being that kind of line.

Sounds just like the Flyers new scoreboard this year. Indredible how much better it is than the old ones.

Wow, when have I ever said that? When have I ever even said that I liked the signing in the first place?

As I have stated many, many times there were much better options out there. Feel free to continue to misquote me though.

I'm pretty sure you expressed an opinion that "enforcers" are needed, when in fact they are just a waste of a roster spot.

Those pics are great - thanks dafoomie!

I'm glad to see they didn't take it over the top or make it look tacky. It looks nice the way it is and I'm psyched about watching games there this year.

Enforcers, yes. You made the claim that Brookbank was my favorite player which is not true. Nice try though, and again, feel free to continue to misquote me.

Haha sorry, I won't misquote you anymore. Stop taking yourself so seriously and learn to deal with some sarcasm.

That one's pretty nuts too, but the Bruins one seems more classic looking somehow. The Flyers one looks too busy or something.

Enforcers are part of the game and Brookbank will be more than adequate. We dont want to be the only team in the division without a heavyweight. Watching your hometeam get pushed around,in my opinion, sucks! If hes in the lineup that wont happen.

Flyers scoreboard looks like the ACC one, I like it.
Good upgrade for the Bruins as well
