    Yeah, but he's a minus 6, so his defensive game isn't there this year anyway! :sarcasm:

    unfortuneate news

    However, the bruins have been winning games even when playing not up to snuff so perhaps this will force them to play the way they are capable

    Give spooner a look

    Frankly I'll take that over a lot of other variations of lower body injuries. He probably would say the same thing.

    crap news, guys track record is good- was getting scoring chances (1 goal and 4 posts in last 4 games tells me he is, plus the shot on the PK), great PK, double great.

    Spooner getting a call up is interesting- he's someday going to be quite the player, but he's certainly got enough ability right now to contribute.

    I dont think he'll do the Krejci one goal in 27 games, or Marchand 1 assist in 20 games but always something to remember (atleast for me) when watching these kids come in

    real excited to see him, hope Claude puts him in

    Tough loss.

    So best case scenario is that he comes back to help us for the SCF?

    a fan belt isnt the most sexy thing in a car but you need it- Kelly even struggling this year is a A quality PK; good leader, very popular and in last 3 weeks has looked to me pretty damn good offensively- 2 posts vs Habs, 1 vs Caps, goal vs Sens, and post the other night....that is getting chances and the true barometer how guys are playing

    I know I'm in the minority on this guy but I think its a pretty bad loss- hope he comes back for the playoffs cause he can really help

    would have been nice to have his calmness and great awareness and defense last 6 minutes of last night- couldnt have hurt

    Broken leg and they're shutting him down? Oh boo hoo.

    Suck it up and skate you pantywaist. Ice up after the game.
    . . . clearly not of Bruins cloth.


    Anyways, that sucks. Hope he rest up with soothing music in a darkened room, meditating about tiny pucks and HUGE nets.

    Eek. That's even a long shot, I'd think.

    The break has to heal, and the he has to recondition, because it's not like he'll be able to do a lot of work on it during recovery.

    I think he could conceivably be back for the 2nd round.

    Eight weeks is about May 8th. The earliest the playoffs will start this year is April 29th. If any 1st round series goes 7 games then the second round doesn't even start until 9 weeks from now.

    I believe Soderberg's contract expires after this season so that may not be an option for us. Not sure if we retain the year on his contract if he doesn't come this year.

    No doubt. How does it go from their just waiting for the swelling to come down to oh look it's broken? Kelly must be a pretty tough guy

    Broke mine about 10 years ago, and I sure knew it was broken (hurt a lot). I'm pretty active, and was very disappointed after the cast was removed (after 6 weeks). It took way too long to feel confident turning, stopping, etc. Even after all this time it still feels "bruised". Maybe it matters where the break happens (mine was close to the ankle). However over the long term, way better than ligament damage.

    Our third line has been dreadful, so it's certainly not the end of the world. We will miss more of what Kelly COULD have been from here on out as opposed to what he actually WAS during the first half of the season.

    The third line certainly can't get much worse in terms of production. Kelly will be missed, but I'm fairly confident Chiarelli can put together a good third line by the trade deadline.

    Tough loss and an important player but this team still has no excuse to not win the division and have a top 2 seed. He will be back for the playoffs and hopefully not hindered after it heals.

    Tough loss.. Hasn't been playing great but a bad Kelly is still noticeable defensively, we'll see the difference without him...

    Soderberg potentially coming over better not make Chia wait. He's been far too conservative lately and this just isn't the time. We need to upgrade the 3rd line anyway. We have plenty of cap space and plenty are guys are available, what are we waiting for? He's all into that chemistry, more will develop if we acquire guys early. I'm hoping for Clowe or Morrow. Glad to see Spooner is getting a shot, though. Thought he way stay in Providence for some more experience, but he's worked his ass off and deserves some big league time. He'll be on the roster full-time next year anyway, let's see what he can do now.

    Best case scenario, we have Kelly back for the playoffs and this is our lineup:

    Marchand-Bergeron-Seguin
    Lucic-Krejci-Horton
    Soderberg/Trade-Kelly-Peverley
    Pie-Soup-Sugar
    Caron (If Providence doesn't make/have an early exit to the playoffs, maybe replace him with Spooner if he plays well)

    Awful news. Kelly is a key member of this team. I never thought I'd say this, but we need another center.
