Bjork & Studnicka are my picks
Anders Bjork does not impress me.
Or someone in the organization badly misevaluated what he could provide going forward.
I'm hoping Studnicka can make an impression at training camp. If he can step in and show he can produce that would be huge now and for the future if they move him to center
I’m hoping he makes it so he can get his teeth fixed
I love him somewhere between Cheez it’s & Key Lime Pie
Personally, I'd take winger by committee over the center by committee that they had last year.
The thing for me is that whatever wingers end up on the right wing of either the second or third line are going to be the third best player on that line, and I think that's ok. I think, assuming they keep similar lines as the end of last year, Krejci & DeBrusk and Coyle & Heinen are good starts to your 2nd and 3rd lines. I think they're going to have an easier time filling those spots internally than they did filling the center spot last year.
Yeah, we know.
I know we don’t encourage violence anymore. But it would be nice if Boston had a guy or two that could play top 6 minutes and hit to hurt.
Think they got a little lucky this year with the matchups in the playoffs. Once they ran up against a bigger d group they couldn’t wear down skating in circles the 5 on 5 scoring became an issue.
Having an Anderson or Ferland type could help against those types of d units going forward. If nothing else it could balance the scales a bit as far as injured defenceman go in a series which Boston seems to be on the wrong side of consistently
Marchand - Bergeron - Heinen
DeBrusk - Krejci - Pastrnak
Bjork - Coyle - Ritchie
Nordstrom - Kuraly - Wagner
Thanks to those who caught my error, with Coyle centering the third and fourth lines.
Bjork is going to be a good one, he just needs to stay healthy.
Sounds like last year. We will go into the season again with questions on the second and third line. Good job Sweeney. Guy thinks he is a genius going after the bottom bin players, but eventually it’s going to bite him in the butt. He lucked out particularly with Johanssen last year, but you can’t expect that every scrap pick up will work.
I think he’s ok at best right now. He has never ever “wowed” me, that’s for sure.
Jesus... I hate the takes from fans who act like the offseason is already over. Sweeney has time. Relax.
Clone Coyle not a bad plan
Yeah him and a half dozen other guys.
I like double-Coyles.
Well, I suppose just because Sweeney didn't make MoJo an offer, doesn't mean they can't work something out eventually. DS assumed he'd get interest elsewhere, and why make an offer when you need to get the RFAs (Carlo, McAvoy) settled first.
Maybe if no other teams go for MoJo, he'll consider a Boston offer. That's assuming there's any cap space left, of course.
It'd be great to have him back, but there are a few priorities ahead of him.
I’m surprised mojo isn’t signed yet?
Injuries maybe holding him back
Actually statements like that is why he's GM of the year.
Why would he show his hand?
A little posturing maybe? He knows he will need help on both the second and 3rd lines and maybe someone will step up but no GM in their right mind is going to under sell their players when their looking to add help.
Amend my immediate reaction to if it is true the Gm of the year needs to be fired immediately
I think Sweeney is a very bright man and has his cards all lined up.
With Johansson, maybe he didn't make an official offer to Mojo but it doesn't mean they haven't talked terms. You never hear too many rumors since Sweeney been in charge because he doesn't show his hand, he's actually very keen and usually is a step or two ahead of the media and has the canniness to play them right into his hands.
