Now heâ€™s forced to get into the right wing mindset permanently and play most pucks sent his way on the backhand â€“ a nuance Eriksson insists is no problem for him. The Bruins typically spread things out in their breakouts, and rely on both good, strong, smart passes to players in motion and textbook dump passes into the corner to set up their offense. Perhaps still feeling a little Dallas in his game, Eriksson and Marchand have bumped into each other in some instances and completely switched sides on the wing at other moments. http://www.csnne.com/blog/bruins-talk/eriksson-still-working-transition-bruins I'm embarrassed to admit I had no idea Loui was a "natural left wing" who shoots left, now playing right wing. Suddenly playing right wing while shooting left, and gathering passes on the backhand, is quite an adjustment. Never mind the "overloading" aspect (sic). This tempers my enthusiasm for second line potential, though given the B's tight defensive system, I wasn't expecting 30 goals from Eriksson in any event. My hope is that he eventually adapts & can contribute offensively while providing solid defensive play, and I believe he will. It's going to take time, however, as Julien suggests.
