In Response to Re: Bruins' CUP Window now closed : Hey, someone making a good point, without an insult...Very refreshing. But, just a friendly reminder to watch how you spell Krejci. There is at least one person in here that will have a hissy fit if you get it wrong. I really messed it up, so I have been practising it all day. But back to your point. I agree with you that the bruins have 3 quality centers. They are probably the deepest at that position than any other team in the league. My big problem with the bruins is on defense. This team won last year DESPITE the defense (except Chara), not because of it. They just seem to mess up easy clearing plays, and force the forwards to come back deep to constantly bail them out. I know that is part of a forwards responsibility, but not all the time! I know it was only pre-season, but it sure looks like more of the same. Morris, Wideman, and Ferrance are defensive liabilities, and I'm not sold on Stuart or Hnidy either. I hope I'm wrong (it's been known to happen).I am just taking a wait and see approach, before I get excited about this team.

Thanks, I fixed the name. I was getting tired last nite .
Really , the season better start soon or all us Bruins fans will end up , how should I put this , Okay, You all read " Lord of the Flies " . Anyways you get my point.
I think we have a much better defensive core. The problem is in our defensive zone it's not the players, it's our system. I don't even want to start breaking that down as I feel I'm betraying my team (LOL) . Actually Olsonic
kind of broke it down last season and pointed it out pretty well. We do learn things on these threads.
Teams have adjusted with their forecheck to the Bruins breakout. We saw it near the end of the season and against Carolina. It's our coaching staff
that must make this transition and work on it.
I have all the respect in the world in Julien and his staff and certain these adjustments has been worked on . Maybe that's why in pre-season they kind of got hemmed at times as they are working on something new. In the latter stages I did see same pretty passing and puck movement to convince me they will and have found a solution, an improved system.
Can this season start already !!!
and GO BRUINS !
