    Yes.
    He played in China. His anticipation defensively is top level. He was great on the PK always seemed to be in the right place.

    Why are we scheduling pre-season games against Philly and Wash? Those are the two teams that have hurt our players the most. Didn't Gudas headhunt someone in the preseason last year, or the year before?

    Players need actual game time to be ready No way he will play vs Caps and be crisp with out actual games under belt in my opinion.

    Found these two quotes interesting from Cassidy:

    "I think Frederic is a good option going forward"

    "Is it better to have Danton with a Kuraly & Backes" (Was talking about 2nd line Donato/Danton/Pasta)

    I wonder if They are thinking of starting Frederic out on the 4th line. I wonder how people would fee about a Cehlarik-Frederic-Wagner line or Nordstrom-Frederic-Wagner line.

    I feel like a guy with virtually zero pro experience is better served playing big minutes in Providence than playing 10 minutes a night up in Boston.

    Could be a way to get his feet wet at the NHL level and see what he's got. If he performs well and is outplaying Kuraly then you move him up and Kuraly back to the 4th line (where IMO he is at his best). In my head I have Frederic as the #3C getting 15 minutes a night. Maybe some time on the 2nd PP and in games where we have a good size lead you give him some PK time.

    If he makes it, tell him to get anew number.

    That sounds like we may be seeing a Heinen-Kuraly-Backes third line to that the season.

    Maybe Nordstrom-Wagner-Acciari as the forth.

    It's not the most exciting, but I don't hate it to start the season. Let the kids development in Providence and if this isn't working, 3C can be addressed by trade.

    Trade OR sign Stempniek.

    Personally I dont like Kuraly on 3rd line. I may be wrong but I believe he got the most minutes played per game than our other 4th liners, PK I guess. But in 83 career games, he has only 6 goals 15 points. Yes, that'll likely improve if given more minutes and better offensive linemates, but how much more?? 30 points??

    I guess there's no harm in beginning the season as Kuraly the 3rd line centre, but same can be said for Frederic. Personally I would love to see what he can do.

    On Bergeron, shame he couldn't get at least one exibition game in. Bruins play back to back to begin season. IF he's not ready to play the preseason finale, might as well give him an extra day and play him against Sabres Thursday Night.

    I really hope he dont play at all if he's not 100%.. A bad back is nothing to mess around with. My doctor took me off work 3 years ago cause of my back and it's only getting worse. Point being with Bergeron, if he's not completely 100%, missing a couple weeks in October is so much better than taking a hit when he's not 100% and having problems with his back all season, if not all his remaining career. So if he's NOT feeling at his best, I hope he's honest with team dr's and management and waits until HE know's he's completely ready to go..

    Like you said, it doesn’t hurt to start the season. That’s all it is.

    I’m so glad it’s a 1:05 start.

    I thought about going but I have a surprise party to go to at 5 so it isn’t worth it.

    I’ll miss the game but I’ll be setting my dvr for later
