Healthy, but likely dealing with low confidence based on recent play.

The team has died from a confidence standpoint. The only way to revive them is if the goalie steals two or three in a row, but his mind still seems to be on the moon.

Either on the moon or deep in thought on how he can blame his own crappy play on others.

During the time Ducks hired Boudreau one Capitals fan posted in Finnish hockey forum that hopefully BB will not bring assistant coach Bob Woods with him who was responsible playing the dmen and penalty killing in Caps.

Well look now, penalty killing that worked with RC is totally **** with Woods/BB.

Penalty killing takes a hit under Boudreau

If they had any heart, they would run two.

The question was if we see any good runs coming up. We wouldn't want them to get tired.

I would like to see BB do more to get Ryan involved. Nothing has been more irritating the past few games then watching Ryan half-ass it until the final 5 minutes. I know the player shouldn't be like that, but IMO what's needed now is for BB to get Ryan more involved. The best way I see that happening is by moving Ryan to the top PP unit and move Fowler to the 2nd unit. Move Getz to the point with Lubo. Defenders have to give Lubo more respect so it should open more space for Getz. I think Ryan just getting chances will help him "feel it" more during the game, which should help with his play on the ice.

Getzlaf is terrible on the point on the PP. It's been tried before, a number of times.

I really don't get it, he's actually pretty good defensively. He should be flourishing in that role.

Playing the point on the PP isn't about defense. It's about opening up lanes for the PP unit to exploit, and Getzlaf doesn't do a good job at that from the point. He keeps things on the perimeter, and seems too willing to play catch with the other point man.

On the half-wall, he's just more effective.

I've only seen it done for one game with Lubo and it seemed to work great. He shouldn't run the PP but IMO having Ryan on the ice instead of Fowler is a big plus. They had Hagman there though last time :S

So I know it's only been a little more than a month since BB replaced Carlyle, but does everyone think the team is better or worse since the change? I'm leaning on worse. We have scored more goals, but or defense is still horrid, and our PK absolutely stinks.

Pretty much the same I'd say, just different approaches.

I'm not sure Bonino would have gotten the chance he has gotten under BB if Carlyle was still around.

About PK, it also hasn't changed much, just became less lucky/effective. Same positioning, same approach.

Yeah unfortunately some players are playing better under BB then they did for Carlyle, while it's the opposite for others. Nothing new.

Improvement for sure, but BB can't get Lydman out of his funk, and Brookbank seems to just be so hot and cold that being said I think Lubo is looking really good since coming back, though that might be more due to actually be 100% for the first time in ages.

And the goaltending, well it's not very good most nights.

I wasn't expecting miracles from BB, he has a brand new farm system and roster to deal with, never coached in the West, going to be some adjustment to be made. I love how BB is giving players like Bonino a big chance though.

Way too much juggling with the lines for my taste. Lets for god sake keep the top two lines for now with Blake back. How about Hagman-Mace-Cogs on 3rd?

No, wait. Macenauer is sent down to the minors...

Not to mention Bonino has been very good. Mace isn't a 3rd line center IMO, will be a great 4th like center

Some guys look better, some look worse I'd say his results are about the same. Boudreau is getting more out of the depth players but less out of the star players so far.

Getzlaf is one guy who looks a lot worse under BB, 1 goal and 5 assists in 14 games. Fowler and Perry are a couple of other guys who looked much better under Carlyle.
