Kaspars Daugaviņ

for all the haters out there i thought he looked good in game 1. only caught 2 periods before heading out but he is so strong in the corners and looked good with jagr. also had a nice backcheck on bozak breakaway to at least hassle him a little bit going in. i like him in the lineup.

Mentioned this in the other thread, did anyone pay attention to the matchups Claude may or may not have played last night? Did he use the Kelly line on Kadri? If so the Daugavins choice is a defensive one, and I don't mind it at all.

he was ok. he blew some offensive chances and missed a few opportunities to create offense. he also had a couple bad turnovers that luckily toronto immediately botched the mistakes got swept aside rather than magnified. id certainly start pevs or soderberg over him next game no question.

Peverley should be in over him for game #2, but I doubt it.

pevs will be in. anyone that watches daug's play last night and compares it to a good peverly game understands its night and day between the speed they can bring. peverly can add the grit as well but has chosen not to for most of boston's season. duag could play better i think but i for one expect clode to get one of his guys back in.

Meh, didn't do much for me. Jagr needs somebody with some offensive acumen on his line which is why I'm hoping Soderberg or Peverley slot in there Saturday night.

Dog looked fine, but honestly he should not be playing over Pevs.

As the playoff move on, I expect Sugar sitting with Sordeberg and
Pevs and Dog both playing...

random thought but how about these two lines

marchy kelly seguin
jagr bergeron peverly/soda

there was a shift where kelly was with those two for a good 35 secs and the speed of kelly was more dynamic than bergy. this also gives someone for jagr to get completely comfortable with.

having options are nice.

Daugavins is the perfect Thornton replacement....he's over his head on the third.

Get Soda or Pevs in there next game.

i agree. those saying he should be in over peverley must be assuming he returns to form the first game hes back because hes been frustrating all season

no. idc how "dynamic" they looked. Marchand-Bergeron-Seguin is the best line we have. no point to break it up.

Ideally a healthy scratch or Thornton replacement if they draw a soft team.

Not enough offense to warrant a 3rd line spot.

The back check on the breakaway was excellent, but I'd still prefer Pevs.

I was nervous both times Bergy was in the box, and our 2nd best face-off man was upstairs.

Also, Pevs being a right-handed shot might work better offensively with Jagr & Kelly.

Can't argue with results though, and I won't lose sleep if Clode rolls the same lines.

not now but it'll take 4 lines against better teams, #sowhynotnow.

I agree with this. Either Peverley or Soderberg should have taken his spot, IMO. He was serviceable in his role, but is better suited to the 4th line of this team.

Paille played on the 3rd line and he's definitely not an offensive powerhouse. Not sure where you're heading with this point. I'd rather see Soderberg in place of Dawg. For me, Peverly didn't showed anything, this year, who make me believe that he will help us. On most nights, he was bad, overall, in all three zones.

you cannot put jagr and soderberg on the same line. it just doesn't work they both want the puck. to put soderberg in you have to chnge up the top 2 lines which after last night will not happen. peverly does make sense as his speed could help push the play for jagr. soderberg seems like an average skater at best.

And having Paille on the 3rd line is not good enough either.

Kelly-Peverley-Ryder bailed out this team more than once in 2011.

I don't see how the current 3rd line is better or even.

Especially when you have Peverley who's playing like a shell of the 2011 Peverley.

In the playoffs it's almost impossible to draw a soft team.

I think he's brutal. He had that one nice defensive play but other than that what did he do? He had no idea where to go when Jagr or Kelly had the puck and every time he touched the puck in the offensive zone he'd take a stupid shot that got blocked up into the stands or just turned the puck over.

Pretty much this. I can't believe some people think the Bruins owe him something for the one decent game he had against his former team. He's fine to have coming in as an injury replacement, but has no business starting on a team as deep as the Bruins are.

Pevs should be in for sure. Everybody got a chance for a fresh start to the season, so why not Pevs. He takes faceoffs, can kill penalties, and creates more offense and speed than Dogman does. Get him in there, as he at the least will make Jagr more effective. Any team with a 3rd line of Pevs/Kelly/Jagr with two lines in front of them playing the way the did last night is a top 4 cup contender!

i think the ideal forward lineup right now is

lucic/krejci/horton
seguin/bergeron/marchand
peverley/kelly/jagr
paille/campbell/daugavins

...that is a very good lineup
