    I would normally agree, however, with Marchand and Pastrnak out for a good part of the beginning of the season… and then they have to get up to get into game shape… I think most Bruins players are going to be picking a hit in fantasy next year.

    How can anyone say this about a third pairing dman. If he was all of these things he wouldn’t have played sheltered min on the third pairing all season long. He is not close to what a Krug is and likely never will be, don’t hate the guy but to give him those accolades is a bit much. If they pair him on the first pairing it will be a disaster within the first month. Fast heavy forwards coming down on him shift after shift will be a disaster, his best spot will be with Carlo on the second pair.

    ... Want to check which teams had the lowest goals against last season? Apparently youll be surprised.

    Carlo is more than fine as a top 4D, hes very very good.

    Want to check how good McAvoy and Gryz were as a pairing last season? One of the best in the league when they were together.

    Lauzon and Clifton are both better than Chara at this point.

    Losing Chara is really nothing at this point. All they're missing is Krug and while thats a big loss his only real contributions were on the PP and he was pretty meh 5v5.

    Maybe watch a game?

    This isnt 2010 anymore, losing Chara is like losing a #6D.

    Also Chara might still come back and saying their defense is bad because they "might" lose their starting goalie makes no logical sense :laugh:

    First, i don't like your tone. "Maybe watch game", really?

    If you really knew hockey, I have a hard time seeing how you can say that Lauzon and Clifton are better than Chara? Even if Chara is far from being what he used to be, that is outrageous. Don't you think Cassidy (who I guess is probably a better talent evaluator than you) would have played them more than 15 min/game if it was the case? Chara, with all his flaws, still played 21 mins/game in key situations and was the main shutdown guy. Start watching hockey yourself. I don't think many Bruins fan will claim that Lauzon/Clifton are more than a 3rd pair Ds right now.

    I know a top pair D when I see one, and Gryzlcyk, as good as he is, is not that right now. I said he's a 2nd pair D, which is alright. Fact he was good with McAvoy don't make him a first pair D. It's like saying Mike Komisarek was a first pair D because he was playing with Andrei Markov.

    Most Bruins fan will agree that D is weaker that it has been in the recent past, and that the left side is pretty bad. That is just a fact. It is not a hot take or anything.

    Stop embarassing yourself.

    Yes the D isnt as good as it was last season. That doesnt mean it still isnt a very good D core.

    Chara played a lot because he was being covered by McAvoy, in the same way Bogosian was being covered by Hedman. Their main shutdown player was Carlo and that's not really debatable. Chara is nothing more than a tall bottom pair D at this point, why else do you think Boston isnt sure if they want him back?

    They have one hole in their top 4 with Krug gone that they will see if one of their young guys can fill and if not they will add someone at the deadline since they have cap room.

    *whispers* ... the Bruins don’t give up many goals because of their forwards not their D...
