    I think they respect Gryz to showcase him to find a team
    No way he signs Moore and then let’s him sit

    Also this would be like a player 'jumping' Kuraly. We'd get over it.

    Eller is no star player. He doesn't need the added protection and fan indignation. If it weren't Marchand (who other fans just wanted to see beat up) it doesn't make the news or social media.

    Extreme hot take:

    Put Wagner with Marchand and Bergeron

    Put Pasta with Snek and Krejci

    Keep 3rd line together

    Put Backes with Kuraly and Acciari

    My hot take is that Sweeney makes a damn trade for Krejci's winger and we can keep the 4th line, Backes can slide into the 3rd line again.

    You can make an argument to dress all 7 D, since they have proved to be NHL assets in their own situations, and drop a forward who hasn't.

    I like Moore too but he lacks Miller's toughness

    Just got done listening to Mathew Barnaby on Brad Marchand/Lars Ellers last night.


    "I totally understand Marchand, and like he said he plays twenty minute's a game, Eller plays ten. Marchand draws a penalty and gets to play on the PP and gives the Bruins a chance to win, I'm sure we will see Marchand challenging him again but it'll be under his terms, what I totally understand."

    The scrub Lars Eller can piss right off. He will get his a** kicked again when Marchand decides to have another go. :box:

    That’s the problem when you match that line against the Ovechkin line . They will get a lot of ice time . For the most part they did well but that’s just a little too much of Acciari in prime time .

    Most players lack Kevan's toughness

    I definitely respect Marchand's dictating when he'll fight Eller. Then was not the right time for one of the top LW's in the game to go to the box. I'm surprised so many Bruins fans are so upset with this, Lucic turning down Laraque against Montreal was well received.

    It's not a joke of a comment at all. If anything, your response is the overboard post here.

    If the Bruins are playing a fast Tampa Bay team for example, I'm more than happy to see Nordstrom in there over Wagner. You dress the players depending on the game. If Kuraly has been off, he sits.

    It's pretty simple really. Wagner and Kuraly haven't won the right to play every night any anyone who criticizes people for thinking so is the one making bad jokes.

    Yeah, loved that 4th line.

    Cycle down deep against Zaitsev and Gardiner pairing will yield results every game. You?

    Still Believe that Kuraly and Wagner haven't won the right to play every night?

    Yes. You play them against certain opponents and bring in Backes and Nordstrom for other games. No one in the bottom six is cemented into the lineup. The lack of scoring proves that.

    They have been great lately and I've really enjoyed their play but it's a small sample size and only weeks after the entire team looked out of place. When slumps happen guys get to sit.

    We'll have to agree to disagree on this one.
