Superstar ?

Schultz has been putting up some points recently. I think they're just trying to assess where he is and what he needs to work on while rewarding his play at the same time.

White will likely never see AHL time again. I think he has more upside than what people may credit him with. I wouldn't be surprised if he develops into a Moen-esque 3rd liner.

I can then name the rest of the Hawks roster.
You mean Kostitsyn, the guy who was 2nd on our team in hits last year? You mean this isn't physical to you? but what the hawks did was?







I'm pretty sure we all know about Subban's track record of hard hits too.

Incredible to see what White has been doing in the AHL after bening out so long. Guy is an offensive juggernaut. lol

Yes, him. Only habs fans would call him a tough player.

How'd that work out?

It was a ****ing disaster, is how it worked out.

Why? Because the Bruins tough guys actually have NHL talent, and if you don't match that NHL talent, you are playing into their hands, they will just avoid the overly rough stuff and score goals by outskating and outplaying your guys.

This is what I fear will happen to Schultz.
It's a good opportunity to see if Schultz has any 4th line potential because we are facing injuries again, but trying to outbrawl the Bruins would end in a massacre (on the scoresheet, that is). I don't expect much from Schultz besides a few minutes (at which point the usual suspects accuse Cunneyworth of hating toughness) and a show fight. Anyway worth looking at to see what we have.

It's not like Subban was being targetted because they were jealous of his talent either. He did kind of provoke it.

White was a scorer in juniors. I think he can be like Zach Smith type.

This can only be looked at as a positive step in the right direction. Face facts, we aren't a contender at this point of the season, and what we need is a philosophy change. This fits that bill. You must grow tired of having other players mock our guys, rough our guys up and then you look at our 4th line and see wide eyed babyfaces looking on in enqvist and palushaj, two guys who are good for skating around the ice and nothing more. It's not like replacing those two with tougher, less skilled guys hurts our production as they dont even produce. At least the tougher guys will bring something positive to the table, and quite frankly it is something this team desperately needs.

It's not about just matching up with the top tough teams fight for fight. It's about letting other teams know that even if we do lose some fights and such, we are for once not going to stand around and be like Darche, saying "hey Gaustad, what you just said about Patches wasn't very nice, take it back"...nope. We'll have guys who can go out and punch him in the face. Make him accountable at the least.

This is what a 4th line is all about. Worrying if one guy can play when he might get about 6 mins of time on the ice is lame. His time on the ice isn't the thing hurting this team in the least bit. Poor production from the top guys and injury has been our downfall, and frankly, the beating our smaller forwards have taken is showing through in their play and now with injuries mounting.

From here on out, I fully expect them to go with tougher guys who have balls. Not big guys with some skill that are afraid of their own shadows, which we also have a few of on the roster.

They sure all seem to be big and play physical.

Tell me what is "physical play" if not hitting and battling on the boards.

Man people are blowing this waaaaay out of proportion.

Montreal have a guy who projects as a big, physical 4th liner. He has a spent a decent amount of time in the AHL, so they want to have a look at him. And what better time to see what he can bring, than against the toughest team in the league?

But let's get back on topic.

Ryan White is back baby. WOO!

Very good comparison

Too bad we play the Hurricanes tomorrow, they do not have any fighter except maybe Gleason and Allen. But against the Bruins I want to see Schultz agains McQuaid and White against Campbell

But he's already the best defenceman on the team, easily.

Can't wait for Wednesday's game. And Remember what happen at the end of the Buffalo game, the Kaleta and Gaustad story about Pacioretty. Me thinks that friday night, Gaustad and Kaleta are gonna have a visit!
