Dennis Seidenberg

...

Just to change up the dialogue here a bit, I've decided to start a thread with a little love for one of my favorite players in the league.

For heroes unsung, I think Seids is a player who does so much on the ice and gets little in the way of league-wide recognition for it.

He's physical as hell.

He blocks shots.

He's efficient at the simple transition game that the Bruins play. Good puck mover and good skater. Won't put up great points, but will chip in modestly sound ways.

He's frequently paired with the greenest or biggest defensive liabilities (Kampfer, Corvo, etc.) That shows a trust that CJ has in him to cover for mistakes, to communicate with his partner and to win enough one-on-one battles to make up for the miscues that come with inexperience or sloppy play.

Seidenberg's ability to play on either side of the ice and in any situation asked of him makes him among the most versatile players on our team.

To ask for a better #2 defenseman would just be greed. I know he doesn't produce numbers that astound, but I couldn't be happier with him.

If they gave 3rd and 4th assists, Seids would be a top 10 offensive D-man in the league IMO. He doesn't get a lot of final touches before a goal but he's awesome at keeping the puck in play and facilitating the cycle. A really perfect defenseman for this team's system and style of play.

Before he got here the biggest hole on the team was a lack of a #2 dman. Don't think we win the cup without Seids efforts.

I want Seidenberg to retire a Bruin. Period.

Great player.

The Boston Bruins have acquired Dennis Seidenberg and prospect Matt Bartkowski from the Florida Panthers for Byron Bitz, Craig Weller, and a 2010 second round draft pick.

That 2nd round pick ended up being Alexander Petrovic.

No disrespect on Petrovic but he's obviously the only good one of the group. Bruins win this deal.

Glad he's a Bruin.

Great change of pace MMB, have to admit, at the time of his aquisition, due to ignorance about his game, wasn`t too overwhelmed with the deal. A few years later, have to say, this has to still be one of Chia`s best moves out there. Weller/Bitz and a 2nd (not sure who the Panthers took for him?)

Thanks for starting a refreshing thread.

Seids was huge for the B's in the playoffs. Wasn't he injured for the 2010 playoffs ?

He deserves more attention.

Love Dennis on the B's.

The series against the Caps really cemented for me his character. While the team somewhat didn't perform up to expectations, I thought Sides actually lifted his game to another level for that series.

Best player in that entire series as far as I'm concerned.

Yeah, suffered deep cuts on his forearm from an opponents skate shortly before the playoffs that year.

His absence was yet another reason why, even though they ended up losing four in a row to Philly, that whole little run that year was all gravy to me. That team was thin to begin with before layering on the injuries.

Also, really appreciate his solid work during the season but are there too many other guys that raise their game so consistently and appreciably in the playoffs?

There are four players I have seen live that have stood out above and beyond for different reasons every single time I have seen them.

Kovalchuk and Gaborik are just plain better then everyone else on the ice. Every time I see them live, they stand out no matter who else is on the ice.

On the other side of the spectrum is Dennis Seidenberg and Vlad Sobotka. I have never seen guys throw their bodies around which such reckless abandon. I would suggest to buy a ticket near the glass on Seidenberg's side.... I have no idea how that man makes it through an 82 game season plus play-offs...no clue. An absolute animal... Vlad is just insane... No idea how he has not broken his neck yet... Cannonball.

His collisions with Ovie were one of the few highlights from the last playoffs. Man did they go at each other....

He was born to play D for the Bruins. He's the perfect guy to play alongside Chara, and he can carry a defensive pairing himself if the situation requires it. Great, great acquisition.
