Oh my bad.

I meant Spooner drops to the third line when Krejci gets back, Krejci-Bergeron-Spooner-Campbell until Kelly gets back.

I actually thought it was more entertaining the other way.

I read through the thread that Alicat posted, and the other thread that it was linked to.

All I learned was that Raptor Jesus is "some esoteric 4chan meme."

Now I'm way more confused than I was to begin with!

You guys are way over thinking this.

The simple answer....it's his nickname. Just run with it. Otherwise you're getting into the theology of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and you'll never look at people the same.

There's so many places that I could go with Spooner between Looch and Horton, but I probably saw all of them in a porno flick when I was in college.

Spooner getting a chance tonight between Lucic and Horton is a great move because it give the brass a chance to see what they really have in this guy.

Also, if I can play conspiracy nut for a second, it also puts Spooner in the best place to maximize his appeal to other clubs with the trade deadline looming. Otherwise with Claude's track record with rookies I don't see this happening.

I really don't like Julien's comments here: http://www.boston.com/sports/hockey/...pooner_to.html

He's basically saying "One mistake kid and you're back with Pandolfo"

It's sort of a backhanded showing of confidence.

Think of it this way.

25 years from now, when Brad Marchand gets elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame, some of us are gonna have to explain why we called him "Marshmont" and people's eyes are gonna glaze over when we start rambling about Sports Radio, Naughty Mazz and something called a "Rick from Natick."

Sometimes, just sometimes.....the mythical story is better than the actual story.

True, but at least I understand Marshmont! That can be explained.

The other one is too....mythical!!

Well, except he's not basically saying that. At all. One bit.

“I think it’s a great opportunity for Spoons to take,” Julien said. “We’ll see where he goes with that. If it doesn’t work out, we can always make some changes. We’ve seen him play enough that we know he can probably be a good fit there.”
Sounds like he's saying if it doesn't work out, they try something different. That's not a novel concept. That's called "coaching."

Spooner has just been handed the number 1 center job. And he keeps it. You heard it here folks. Bruinsdamus strikes again. Krejci slotted to the 3rd line to center Yeti and Peverley. If Kelly gets back, He centers the Merlot line. Thorty sits. Trust, I'm right about these things almost 3% of the time.

In all honesty though, I love that he gets the shot on the top line. I think there is more potential for scoring with him centering Lucic and Horton than if Pevs was there. No slight to the great Raptor Jesus, he just isn't a top 6 forward. Spectacular 3rd line guy that PKs and can work on the powerplay though.
