    A 2010/11 B's Team I would be excited to watch

    If everybody played to their potential, could this team compete for the cup?

     

    Milan Lucic-Marc Savard-Patrice Bergeon

    Taylor Hall-David Kreci-Blake Wheeler

    Marco Sturm-Joe Colborne-Michael Ryder

    Brad Marchand-Vladimir Sobotka-Shawn Thornton

     

    Chara/Boychuck

    Stuart/Siedenburg or Wideman

    Ference/Hunwick


    Rask/Thomas (Give Rask the Thomas parachute and competition until the trade deadline, then unload Thomas' contract)


    If possible keep Marc Recchi to rotate through the RW's and keep them motivated to play and keep Recchi rested and he becomes our 4th line winger and power play specialist during the playoffs


    Priorities would be to trade Ryder/Wideman but if they played like 08/09 I'd make a run with this team.

    Sturm-Krejci-Hall
    Wheeler-Colborne-Recchi

    With those 2nd and third line pairings I'm with you.....I said it before on another post but the key to all of this is the competition for playing time that should push the team next year.  Lots of hungry young guys is always a good thing and with Colborne, Sauve, Caron, Marchand, Alexandrov, Hall/Seguin, and other pics there should be a big push.

    Sorry, just not enough punch in the top 6 forwards to have a legitimate shot at anything beyond the first round.  Hall (or Seguin) is an as yet unproven (and unsigned) commodity...no guarantee they'd even be with the parent club next year.  Otherwise the lineup just looks like 2009-10 redux.  I still think the B's GAA will be near the lowest in the league next year, but without a bonafide first-line sniper on the right wing they go nowhere.

    Colborne won't be in Boston next year.  He'll spend at least a year in Providence, Suave will probably spend another 1/2 a year in Providence, then play Marchand's role, Caron isn't ready to make the jump from the Q straight to the NHL, he'll spend at least a year in Providence, Alexandrov doesn't feel he's ready to come into the NHL yet so he'll be in Russia, and there is no guarantee Hall or Seguin make the NHL, seeing as they're 17-18.  The lineup I want is:

    Lucic - Savard - Versteeg
    Hall/Bergeron - Seguin/Bergeron - Marchand
    Torres - Krejci - Wheeler
    Paille - Sobotka - Thornton

    Chara - Seidenberg
    Stuart - Boychuk
    Hunwick - Ference

    Rask
    Turco

    Im not too sure i like either of the lineups that were posted....One there is absolutely no Free agent signings, which is a must for this team, and the other is afraid to have any young guns playing.

    You think adding Torres and Versteeg is that much of an upgrade?  And you want to add notorious locker-room poison Marty Turco?  I don't think that's an upgrade except maybe in dumping Ryder out the door.

    Unless they pull and upset in the first round, maybe even get through the second round so they can feel that, despite everything, they're farther ahead, I think there will be bigger changes than this.  I'm not going to speculate on who they can get, but I get the sense the pieces will shuffle like this:

    Will definitely not move: Rask, Chara, Savard, Lucic.
    Bruins will consider moves affecting: Thomas, Wideman, Ference, Stuart, Boychuk, Bergeron, Krejci, Wheeler, any of the prospects except Hall/Seguin/??
    Bruins will make moves affecting: Ryder, Sturm.
    FAs who may or may not return to fill holes: Recchi, Thornton, Begin, Paille, Seidenberg.

    Basically, I'm guessing (yeah, I know) that they might take a shot a lineup split between 5-6 proven, higher-end vets and a lot of young guys and reliable vets.  Maybe that means a deal with, say Calgary, for Iginla and one of their defensemen (Regher would be nice - he was the guy taken with the Boston #1 sent to Colorado for Landon Wilson).  And Calgary gets Bergeron, Krejci, and maybe Ryder (a throw in).  I'm not saying that's the deal, but that's the kind of deep change deal I think they'll work on.

    So you might see a third line of Colborne or Caron centering Recchi and Sauve or Marchand, and a fourth line of Sobotka, Paille, and Marchand/Sauve.  And the D might have Chara and Wideman but then Alexandrov and McQuaid and Boychuk and some $1-2M career 3rd pairing vet or maybe the #16 pick in the draft.

    All of this is predicated on the idea that, for the first time in a long time, they have the potential to follow the recent influx of young impact players (Krejci, Lucic, Stuart, Rask and second tier Wheeler, Wideman) with a second wave of talented kids who can grow into roles.  It's worth considering rather than risk a repeat of the mess this year has been.  It may not produce a cup immediately, but it may bring one faster than any other strategy.

    I don't think I have ever read such utter garbage. Obviously Jezza and bean 15 have never laced up a skate. Chiarelli's task will be to eliminate thru trade or other alternatives, those players who do not add value on a regular basis. Start with Ryder; then Paille and [shucks] Thornton; Begin could easily be replaced with Sabotka. Wideman has been an enigma. He works harder than most, but sems to make horrendous mistakes. Chara is Chara, but he too, this year has made a number of mistakes, and is constantly turned by speedier wingers. Recchi should retire, we need another Lucic or Knuble at net front. Wheeler needs better coaching on handling the puck and using his big body, so maybe he stays. Seidenberg is a must to resign. Why would anyone want Torres?? Did you watch him last night?? Hunwick is the type of skater needed on defense; and Stuart has improved significantly. Bergie, Kreji, and [hopefully] Savard are all positives. Soo, replace the right wings in toto; and also Paille; and if they can, Sturm
