    Re: Paille better than Marchand

    Good thread CCM at this moment i agree that paille should be on the forth line duties he is PK specialist. I have the feeling we will see him game 2 with WSH.
    But the positive is that we do have better depth this year then last.

    In Response to Paille better than Marchand:
    [QUOTE]Last night's was the first game I've been able to see all of.....and I've been reading accolades in these forums for Marchand....BUT....I sure didn't see it. Marchand is slooow.  He gets knocked down.  Despite his reputation as a hitter, he landed only one solid one.  He got the puck for a perfect set up and miffed the shot.  He made one good pass, to Ryder, all night. Paille is about 25% faster than Marchand.  His jet speed makes him a constant breakout threat to the other team....especially on the PK. On PK, he anticipates and therefore intercepts, where Marchand just waves his stick around.  Paille is a specialist.  Paille would mesh with Campbell and Thornton.  He's better than Marchand on the boards and MUCH better on open ice.   Hands of stone?  Paille scored ten last year, and had a lot more "almosts".   Marchand has scored zero goals in 20 games last year and 4 games this year.

    Marchand is looking better in the last couple games.  His shot on net is more accurate than Paille, but every thing else about his game is a question mark.  He is out of position primarily do to the fact he takes chances and does not have the speed to get back in the play.  Campbell and Paille would complement each other better.  Paille's speed and Campbell's aggressiveness would help the Bs keep the puck out of their zone.

    Maybe Marchand is going to be shopped.

    Wally i always liked your comments but i still like Marchand he is extra depth for when the season is in full swing. If we were to trade him we will need to put in an extra bargaining bait Wheels / Hunwick can get us a solid two way d man. Caron and Seguin are the next Bruins to be seen more often. When savy and sturm return in full recovery then it will be time to trade the three and go after our missing linc a solid experience d man with PP strengths.

    Thorn has been looking pretty good IMO... more like two years ago when many had him figured for the seventh player award.

    It will all work out for the best as the season rolls along. I just hope Paille gets another chance.   If that fourth line is clicking, it helps a lot!  I notice that CJ started them against Washington's top line last night....

    I think he started them in NJ too. Idk why he ever does that. I mean I guess if he thinks they are a good enough checking line to handle the other teams topline. Then he can get a favorable mismatch with the Horton-Krejci-Lucic line right off the bat. Its a good thing, but still risky.

    I agree starting Paille over Marchand, but it really has to be time to sit Hunwick - he is brutal to watch. Get McQuaid in or recall Bartowski.

    Bradybruin, you're absolutely right, Hunwick is awful.  He hasn't improved and he was coughing the puck up all over the ice last night.  Sure he got a goal, but that was more luck than anything else with 3 guys screening varlamov.  He has DENNIS WIDEMAN written all over him this year.  Thomas has looked great!  Glad to see good things happen to a good guy.

    Leave that fourth line as it is and trade Paille. Marchand adds a dimension we haven't had for a while. He's an aggitator with some offensive skill. He's a proven winner with team Canada over the years on big stages. Give him a chance...Paille has shown all he's got to offer and it isn't that much. 

    Hunwick is pretty good in the offensive zone and has good offensive instincts but defensively he's a disaster.

    Re: Paille better than Marchand

    PK did well against a premier PP . Marchand while on PK played well.
    So has Caron done well, he was on the ice for Caps last PP while empty net (6 on 4) and let's not forget the best PKer , Thomas.
    Right now for Paille to get back in there Marchand would be in play. As long as he continues playing without any dumb penalties to put his team in trouble or no major errors that lead to a goal,  Marcand is not going to get scratched.
    As for Hunwick , not a big fan ,  his start of season has been a struggle .  He needs more time and play simple. Then we'll see if his confidence returns .

    To me, they are the same type.

    The difference being that Paille is the better skater, and Marchand is the better sh-t disturber.

    But, I'll give the edge to Paille.

    Re: Paille better than Marchand

    For a guy with so called offensive upside Marchand has shown none. He does bring a bit of grit . I think Paille had a poor opening game and that gave Brad a chance to step in . Unless Marchand starts taking foolish penalties or something it might be hard for Paille to get back on the ice.

    We need the grit as long as Marchand does not take stupid penalties he should stay.

    Marchand>Paille IMO

    The Bruins have won 3 games with Marchand in the lineup; 0-1 with Paille.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Re: Paille better than Marchand

    For me Paille doesnt do it for me. Keep things the way they are. There was mention of Marchand not being an offensive threat....What do expect from the fourth line. They arent played to score goals. Although at times they will pitch in. You cant expect that line to produce on a regular basis. Now if you were to put Marchand with say Krecji and Horton, then you have to think his chances would increase. So THINK when you make retarted comments. Everyone is so eager to dis players so quickly. I will agree with the hunwick comments made. Im still baffled by him being on the powerplay. After several games with hunwick on the powerplay, it just doesnt seem to be working. I know he scored, but the only reason I can think of him being on the power play is for his puck rushing speed. But thats all I can really see him bringing to the powerplay. OH and he scored because the goalie was screened by two Bruins. Kudos to the two who were in front of the net.

    As much as I liked the resigning of Paille because of his speed and PK abilities I cannot argue with that logic and Marchand's sandpaper loved the shoulder to hip check he delivered against New Jersey should not have been a penalty.

    I think its time to give Paille a chance back on the 4th line and give Marchand a seat.
