Does Söderberg use his size to his advantage? If he does, I really think it's a no-brainer. The Bruins need some skill and speed so if he has the speed, he definitely has the size, too. He might not become the best player on the ice but surely, he can be more dangerous, offensively, than Daugavins? As long as his D is sound, he really should be in there? If Horton is out, then that is even more necessary, imho. Daug will probably stay in because of his experience. 'Coach probably won't bench him because he missed a glaring opportunity to win the game. He didn't have obvious turnovers leading to goals or scoring chances, did he? However, with another injury, they'll need another guy. Daug could be on thin ice, though.

They've gotten to the final without the 3rd line. When the inserted Daugavins it was more for the PK replacement than looking for scoring. Not saying that we don't need that line to score, but it was a pretty obvious line of thinking for putting him in.

You gotta get him out there!
Or when he scored a hat trick on Viktor Fasth?
(sarcasm smiley because he didn't actually score a hat trick on Fasth. I'm just making a point that SEL is not a scrub league, he's put up big numbers on goalies on par with Fasth, who finished this season with a GAA comparable to Antti Niemi - granted with fewer games played, but still)

He had two assists. I remember the phantom assist quite clearly. He did too touch the puck, a Florida(?) player touched it afterwards, which could have negated the assist, but didn't, because the player in question didn't have enough control over the puck to justify a whistle if his team had a delayed penalty, for example; he barely touched it along the boards and it went straight to Jagr, I think. Also, Söderberg provided the screen on that goal, so I think it was a more well-earned assist than most secondary assists in the league.

That's wonderful they got this far without scoring from the 3rd line, but it probably would have been handy last night, no?

I think daugavins has looked pretty good since he has been in there. He probably should have just one timed that seguin pass but nevertheless he's had some chances which is more then a player like kelly has had. Jagr hasn't scored either even though he has had some bunnies but I don't want to bench him either. the puck will start going in for both of them if they keep putting themselves in good position. But the next discussion is if horton can not go in game 2 who do the Bruins put in as a substitute. I really don't want to see jordan caron in there, especially against a team with so much speed like the blackhawks, caron seems to have lead in his skates and he might not keep up. You replaced a PKer like campbell with another in daugavins. So now you lost a 1st liner in horton and are replacing him with seguin. Who would fit best on the 3rd line as the skill guy to replace seguin. Its either soderberg, caron or pandolfo. I don't think spooner is a black ace but if he is and has been skating I would put him in. If not I go soderberg. He's not very experienced at the NHL level but he's a mature responsible player. And all the practice on the small ice away from the games, who knows, maybe that has been enough for him to adjust to the playing surface. He led the SEL in scoring and I think that means he has the most offensive upside of the 3. But again, if spooner can play, i put him in. Very good year in the AHL and saad is the same age and is playing big minutes for the hawks right now.

They didn't need it last night. They took a 3-1 lead 6 minutes into the the third. That should have been enough and they should have shut the door.

Of course it would have been handy, who could deny that? If you looked a the games they've lost in the playoffs so far this year it has had more to do with completely head-up-the-ass decision making than not getting anything out of the third line.

But yes, I agree, that 3rd line has been crap and needs to produce or at the very least play even and not in the minus like most of the year.

I just get frustrated by folks who claim he "should" be in there like he earned it or is an obvious better option. He's not. He's just another gamble who might offer offense. That's fine. I wouldn't do it but it's reasonable.
x 100 I couldn't wait for him to get here but facts are facts he looked a little out of place . I am very hopeful on his future but if he is going to step in now he better be a better player than we saw. I really don't think we need to score too much on lines 3 and 4---we need lines that go out there and don't get dominated or scored on much . They have actually been doing a lot better since the first series but Im worried about them in this series and x 100 if tyler goes to line 1 and Nathans out although its sounding like we might see him again.

To be fair so have Kelly and Peverley. If you're going based on skill Soderberg is miles better than those two in that department and even though Soderberg has looked out of place he has been able to possess the puck for stretches at a time from what I saw.

If Campbell didn't get injured I agree 100% but they still need Kelly for penalty killing IMO. Kinda sucks but I think its true.

They could find SOMEBODY else to kill penalties. I know realistically Kelly won't be sat, I just think he should.

Just get ready to be disappointed, everyone, if Yeti does get the call. He absolutely does NOT use his size advantage. We think he's got balls because he cross-checked a guy in the neck when he wasn't looking. I am right here with everyone else in thinking he was a good pickup. He's got speed and loads of talent. But not ready for NHL primetime. Not yet. He needs a whole preseason camp and lots of action to rev up to fully-realized potential, and he needs to experience the aggression in this league compared to his old one. It's a smaller rink; it's faster and it's more competitive. People are hemming and hawing at Segs being a baby lately and not getting dirty in front of the net or in the corners. Did you SEE the few games Soderberg played for us? Dude got folded over every time it got at all physical. Not good timing at all to bring him in now, during the most important time of the entire season.

Kelly doesn't look out of place or a step behind. Pevs looks a step slower than the old pevs but not out of place. You guys just keep looking at the score sheet. Id love to see a third line of sods spooner--apparently he is the same age as saad so he is the same player as him and caron. Some of you guys actually think they would be a better line on june 14th 2013. We just held the penguins to 2 goals in 4 games although that took a ton of luck it also took a great group effort by EVERYONE

They could have, and would have, beaten the Penguins without Kelly or Peverley

Soderberg stepped on the ice basically after landing at Logan hours earlier; it was all new to him; all. He's been here practicing and acclimating himself to everything from A to Z for months now. Different set of circumstances. You could have written the same warning about Krug and it would've made perfect sense, too--until it was actually tried.

Soderberg deserves a shot to be inserted at this point. (That's what she said.)

As much as I dislike what we are seeing from Kelly /Peverley, at this point you can't put BOTH Caron and Soderberg in. There is a better chance that Kelly will find his game than there is of those two having any kind of impact.

We must play him. I just went to Sweden and Finland a few weeks ago screwing this kid over doesn't sit well with me and reeks of arrogance to not play one of Sweden's best players instead of Thornton (ineffective w/o GC) or some scrub who deked into the goalie on an empty net in OT.

What did Yeti show in the handful of games that he has played in the NHL that makes you believe he is ready to play in the Cup finals?

He was the best player outside the NHL this year.

Instead of Carl I know what I have seen from the others who are his competition for that spot. I freakin have seen a third line that can't score in a brothel for 17 full f-ing games and another healthy scratch who was played over him decide to try a deke when the net was wide open in double OT of a Cup Finals game. Horton has a separated shoulder. Its f-ing time to play the kid (and he is 27 or 28 by now so experienced.)

The depth guys playing over him suck balls Paille and the now injured GC aside.

He looked as good as any other one of our players during that stretch of time for the Bruins.

So why can't we just put him in, give him some sheltered minutes and if he looks good, play him more. We're not the same team without Merlot in and aside from Seguin, the bottom six needs a boost, especially with no Horton.

1) He showed he can play on NHL ice. In fact he said he prefers to play on NHL ice than the bigger surface.
2) He showed creativity, which is sadly lacking on the 3rd line and which is going to be needed versus the Blackhawks.
3) He showed some chemistry with Jagr, which could help on th PP.
4) He showed he can play Julien's game.
5) For some of those games he was in the top 3 forwards from the Bruins,as everyone was playing badly.

Outside of that, he can score, he can pass and he can check. He is a complete 2 way player.

I am getting fed up with North Americans who think other countries' leagues are less than the AHL. Sure he hasn't played for a month ,during which he has had time to familiarise himself with the Bruin's system, but neither have the other realistic replacements. Maybe he needs to be on the 4th line for the first game and play Thorton minutes +PP. But if Horton is out, I am pretty sure he needs to be playing if this team wants to beat the best opponent they have faced all year. Hopefully Julien agrees with some of the above and they can unleash the Yeti.
