    I'm sure Karson Kuhlman is a good guy who is kind to animals and whose mother loves him, but what, exactly, does he bring to the table on a line with Krejci and Debrusk?

    This is 3rd line center Kuraly all over again.

    My guess is that they will solve the 2RW issue at the trade deadline after they kow what they have and where they are going. So, for now, Kuhlman is in.
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I think we all can agree Cehlarik is toast here
    And Senyshyn being injured killed any opportunity he might have had
    So its 7 players for 5 roster spots,Backes, Gaunce,Ritchie, Lindholm, Wagner, Kuraly and Nordstrom
    When the music stops 2 will not have chairs

    Even if Zboril were to play lights out in the pre-season, do you seriously think that he'd supplant any of Chara, Grzelcyk or Krug? I guess that he could become the 8th D (after Kampfer), but is that better than playing regularly in Providence?

    To me it means they don't have a better option than Kulhman for now. Same as last year playoffs.
    Unless someone impresses in the near future, they'll get a top 6RW from trades or at deadline.

    I'd say that, even if Senyshyn weren't injured, Cassidy had Kuhlman already pencilled in as the #2 RW.

    As for the bottom of the lineup, it appears that the fourth line will be the same as last year, while the two spare tires will be chosen from Ritchie, Gaunce, Backes and Lindholm.

    Or be good enough to trade to other teams.

    It is absolutely baffling to me that Cassidy STILL refuses to break up the top line, even though they aren't that good together 5v5 and got torched by STL in the Finals. It would make the Bruins top 9 so deadly and well rounded too.

    I think they know by now what they have in Senyshyn.
    Unless he decides to bring it to the next level, they gave him the tools and the time needed to put it together.
    It's up to him to make it happen.

    I still don't understand why they can't put a package together to get a legit --- 25 goal RW for Krejci.

    They have the pieces to do it....even if they overpay a bit.

    They have at least 8 legit NHL defensemen ( I know KM and JM are injured, but they'll be back at some point) and what seems like 124 bottom 6 forwards, and of course picks.

    Why not move a d-man, an NHL forward and a 2nd for a guy who can make line 2 legitimate?

    Overall, I like what Sweeney has done here. My one issue is his unwillingness to make a move like this.

    Maybe I'll end up being wrong about this but I have no faith that Kuhlman is good enough or Bjork is durable enough to make a difference.

    I wonder if adding Senyshen, Zboril, Cehlarik and maybe Vladar is enough for a team to take on Backes? I really want him gone, if we can't trade him without giving up top picks/prospects, then send him to the AHL, at least it clears about $1M or so from the cap.

    He listed the three left side defenseman he would have to be better than to take a spot lmao

    why wouldn’t he list him there?

    What? Why wouldn't he? Grzelcyk is a good defenseman.

    An injury to either Bergeron or Krejci and this is a one line team all over again.
    I am not convinced that either Bjork or Kuhlman is the answer for the top 6 spot yet.

    Probably has to do with the fact that Grzelcyk is small and not overly physical (something bb_fan drools over) and doesn't bring an elite offensive game like Krug. So he's still the defenseman that is removed if he gets "outperformed".

    I see that I don't really have to answer that because Rubber Biscuit did a fine job of doing so:

    I think you are right, but I am intrigued by the idea of flipping Coyle and Krejci in that lineup. I don't care which is considered 2nd or 3rd line, but I feel Debrusk and Kuhlman's North South style better fit Coyle. The skill Heinen and Bjork have shown seem to be a better fit with a Krejci.

    What member of Cassidy's family did Krejci sell to the Russian mafia? I like Ritchie but C'mon.

    Speed and a quick release. He’s also a surprisingly chippy player for his size and decent at forechecking and back checking. In 11 games with debrusk and krejci he had 3 goals and 2 assists in 11 games.

    I see nothing wrong with Cassidy trying different pairings to see how they click... it's training camp after all. Time to experiment while they loosen up the rust.

    I'm of the opinion that you need to keep trying.
    Even if an experiment hasn't work a few times before.
    Doesn't mean you can't try it again in a different setting and/or in a different combination.
    After all, we have nothing to lose.
