Good read. Sounds like CJ is confident heading into next season with his personnel. I would be too. This group is going to be even better than this past season's team.

Great stuff. Love that he's gonna wait and see as far as the top 2 lines go and also love how emphatic he was about what Soderberg's upside is.

I would like to see Soderberg on LW with Bergeron and Iginla. Move Marchand, if not trading him, to 3rd line with Kelly.

I love how a thread based on some KPD nonsense specuplation balloons up to 20 pages in a couple days, but this one with some genuine insight into the team from Claude is going nowhere.

Great article, team looks good on paper, lets see how it drudges through the regular season. More anxious to see which kid rises to the top for a bottom six role.

I just noticed how Coach said in the article "Do we put Iginla on the first line with Krejci or on the other first line with Bergeron? To me, I always thought those two lines were pretty identical as far as contribution and production" I agree both are first and second lines too me are equally dangerous, to the opposing team that is.

Can't wait for the season to get started but I am in no hurry for winter. No way! I Loves summer..

Marchand and Bergeron have so much chemistry together why would they be split up? Soderberg needs to start on the 3rd line and work his way up, maybe a bit of pp time but to start the season he doesn't belong in the top 6

The article is BS. "....smiled Julien." You don't expect me to believe that, do you? :-P

Gossip > facts.

Julien sounds like a kid who can't wait to try out his new toys. Great stuff.

who do you drop out of it? They aren't paying Iggy and Looch 6 million to play on the 3rd line. Marchand was the leading scorer on the team and Eriksson wasn't brought in to be a 3rd liner either.

If the Yeti pulls a 2010-11 Marchand and makes it impossible not to move him up the chart that's awesome. Until then he's on the third line

This. But even then, I don't think there is any room for him in the top 6 unless he really lights it up. I like what he has shown but he didn't exactly tear it up during the small sample size that we got. The fact of the matter is that he has...what....less than 10 games of NHL experience under his belt? Combine who we have in the top 6 with the fact that he's still a relative unkown and I think it's way too early to even consider him in a top 6 spot.....barring injury.

There's an 8 page article on the Bergeron signing, not all threads get the same type of traffic.

The only thing worse then stupid posts are the people that incessantly whine about them.

Because the former is a trade rumor involving specific Bruins players that could have major implications for several seasons, allows for a wide range of opinions on cap goals, rosters, and overall team strategy, while the latter is a cursory early check in on a long, slow process?

OK, you're going to have to work extra hard to convince me of a few things:

1. Why is Soda above Bergy as 2nd line center?
2. Is breaking up the Soupcan line something you would suggest for other configurations, or were you just trying to give Danny his due with a promotion?
3. Do you think Kelly is better as a 3rd line RW or a trading piece to drop salary?
4. Camara is 19. Discuss.
