    He had 3 points in 20 games, how is that playing well. Ritchie or Frederic can produce that offense with Bergeron and Marchand

    Bigger team that can counter the Blues size and aggressiveness with their own size and aggressiveness most likely wins. Blues manhandled them in my opionion, was truly sad to see, like watching the team that reached the 1990 finals spend the whole season playing "turn the cheek and take the powerplay" hockey.

    Columbus, bigger, tougher more aggressive team beats the NHL's dream team Tampa, Islanders beat Pens, Blues beat Sharks, Bruins(who were bigger and tougher than the Leafs) beat the Leafs, Leafs have responded by getting a bit tougher to try and counter Bruins.

    Seems like getting some size and being more aggressive might be a good idea.

    Doubt it. Neither can even keep up.

    Funny how you cherry pick stats. He had 12 points in 30 games the season before. That's a 0.40 PPG pace. Not bad for a rookie.

    And we still beat CBus in 6.

    Bruins had the right mix of size, speed and skill to go all the way to G7. MoJo couldn't cash in on two glorious chances. Marchand's shot hits Binnington's armpit hair. A little more skill ( or luck ) and that 1st period ends ends 3-0 Bruins, which would have been game.

    Bruins are on the right path with their current mix on the pro team and the prospects coming up look like the can further improve on that.

    Saw him live providence bruins and prospects games. He really didn’t jump out. Thought he looked better first time playing in Boston. Thinking he faces some very tough competition. It won’t be easy.

    I mean he's an option if he earns it at camp. He's got the talent to play up there and he's played with those too before. I think its more people tweaking rosters trying to see possible combinations.

    One of many competing for a spot. Much like Backes his soeed better have improved Bruce looking for speed and pace. Both ends.

    Looks like Trent Frederic added a step . . .“Everything we do is with intention and with the purpose of being better at hockey,” LoVecchio told WEEI.com in a recent phone call. “And I think that over the course of the summer Trent got a lot faster too. He went from being second or third in my pro group in sprints, to winning every race the last few weeks. It was kind of like a joke, he was crushing everyone.”

    Prospect Trent Frederic got faster with help from an ex-Bruins hopeful

    Wait. Aren’t you the guy who predicted Boston wouldn’t qualify him this season? If he didn’t improve in key areas he will either be traded or waived. I still maintain bruins brass like him. Not so sure about coaching staff. I’m leaning towards he gets traded.

    nope, not me. i do believe he has value around the league and several teams have asked
    about him. would love it if he was traded - to lose him for nothing would be poor asset
    management. don't think he can improve his skating enough to make a difference (along
    with his sloppy play with the puck and defensive zone weaknesses)

    I just noticed Axel Andersson has a European clause in his contract for this season. So his options are NHL, AHL, QMJHL or Europe. Contract would still slide in Europe or the Q.

    My guess is he'll be playing in the Q unless McAvoy and/or Carlo aren't inked by the start of the season which means he'll be in the AHL.

    Definitely was a missing element. Certainly shouldn't hurt his chances.

    Of all the Providence Bruins players over the years the nicest to the kids I witnessed was Lovecchio

    I heard he was doing this - so great to see he’s working with Frederic

    The Bruins are internally very high on Frederic- a lot higher than the HF crowd

    I think he’s going to put up Joel Otto type production as a high end third line 200 foot center

    The size the Bruins will have down the Middle is significant

    Studnicka measures at 6’2
    Frederic 6’3
    Coyle 6’3

    Beecher is huge

    One thing getting big guys but these 4 should all be top 9 skill wise with defensive games

    I dunno, but this is promising (article from the athletic by Fluto):

    The Checkers’ strength gave P-Bruins Coach Jay Leach the opportunity to evaluate which of his defenders were best suited for the task.

    “Jakub Zboril and Cooper Zech were probably our two best players defensively last year in the playoffs,” said the Providence coach. “It’ll be interesting to see what happens with those guys.”
