Yah, because everyone was lining up with offers for him.
Sometimes theres a hidden gem in the 7th round
All I know is our forwards need to learn how to score at least 4 goals a game because This defense is going to give up a lot of goals.
I feel bad for Tuukka-his stats are going to suck. I figure Svedberg gets tomorrow's start but Tuukka will be carrying a lot of weight in his shoulders.
But if a team has got to have a ton of injuries-early in the season is better than the end. At least when players return there's still time to make a playoff push and if not-fingers crossed we win the lottery.
Yeah this is not going to be a fun time for our goalies.
Rask needs to freeze the puck a lot more and just take his chances with the defensive zone faceoffs. Its not ideal but we can't clear the puck at all and it's a big part of how things are getting completely out of hand in our end.
For sure. These young experimented AHL guy have a lot of pressure. The vulture are licking their chops.
Right now, our best Dmen is in his ELC, still make rookie mistakes, our #2 comes back from injury and plays like a #4-5 and the rest are #6-7 or AHL guys. Lots of pressure on the Forwards, Rask and Julien.
Well see what happens in November. Will be interesting for sure to watch it unfold.
that was killing me to watch yesterday, even when they were leading.
And article said Chiarelli chose to move Boychuk for the 2nds rather than McQuaid or Bart for a 3rd.
This was the line-up in practice leading into the Buffalo game:
My preference on the defense--play the kids and sit Bartkowski.
I'd rather have a Morrow-McQuaid pair instead of Warsofsky. DW is tiny. Plays tiny. No way he could take on other teams' top lines.
This is karmic payback. The Hockey Gods are not pleased. Oh, you said you have 7 NHL defenseman, huh?
Well, this should be interesting. There will be no more wondering what's "in the system"
"Ladies and gentlemen, your Provid...erm...I mean, your Boston Bruins!"
Thank goodness Providence mimics Juliens style a bit.
the best is that people will use this as an excuse as to why the bruins sucked this year. fact is, they were going to anyways
I wonder IF those young guns have the hiccups some of us actually expect them to strictly due to youth/inexperience if those same fans screaming for the kids in training camp (although most were part of the Spooner love fest) will see just why most coaches/GM`s or whomever, if they have the choice, will often look to the vet as their choice and in reality, the only guy Julien chose over one of the kids was/has been Gagne, and I`m not sure he`s taken the spot of anyone from Providence who would help this team right now
Love the Robins story, but not sure how his presence would make a lick of a difference right now
Chiarelli is an idiot, should have moved Bart for a 3rd. I would rather even have signed Boychuck and then move Chara in the off season.
I think his intent was to use the seconds to get a better RW but he didn't think through what this defense would look like with a couple of injuries-especially if Chara was one of them. Not a good showing by a GM there.
I figured this was going to be an off year (make playoffs but lose in the first/second round) when they couldn't find a real top RW but this team looked awful before the Chara injury and while I think they could have worked through that the team has had Dmen dropping like flies and hasn't had a chance to adjust to one new guy in the line up much less 2 and now 3.
Gonna be a long season.
im with you on this one
Is that even possible?
Again, that's assuming he had takers. Would you give up a third for him? Just ridiculous thinking.
Anyone want to see Krug's finger?
I'm warning you it isn't pretty
Parise slash on Krug was reckless and uncalled for and cheap and he should get games.
Been watching Warsofsky since his BU days and have seen him a lot of times in Providence. At then end of last year he was playing very, very well down there.
I dont know what was going on in training camp but he did not have the best of camp.
The guy I saw in March could play up here. He would take a hit to make a play and very smart player.
If that's his finger, there is no way he is coming back in 2-3 weeks.
They had it in another thread. Looks nasty!!!!! Not so sure about three weeks.
