    There goes the bruins season

    The bruins should probably just call it quits now.
     
    One of our best players is likely done for the season

    If the B's were counting on him at any point this year, then they would likely be experiencing more brutal injury problems.  Too bad for Trent though, this type of injury at his age might be career-ending.

    Re: There goes the bruins season

    Not my favorite player and didn't understand Julien's fascination with the guy last season .  On many occasions could've taken a winger from Prov. and made Sobotka play center but opted for Trent to play center.  Brought zero offense , escpecially when Krejci went down in the playoffs.  I would've rather have seen Marchand being centered by Sobotka.
    What I do feel bad for Trent though is he's battled all his career and is a hard worker. No reward here.

    Thanks.
    I wouldn't poke fun at the guy. It must be devastating to him as a Achilles heel might never heel properly.

    You are right about him not bringing to much scoring touch, but I think JC new he didn't have to worry as much when he didn't have the puck as say, a rookie might in playoff action. Hard worker from the flats of Saskatechewan, where folks live and die for their hockey.

    Spot on, bro.  I'd imagine this would be a tough one to return from at any age, never mind at 33.  He couldn't be faulted for lack of effort.

    Spot on. 

    It wasn't Whitfield's fault that CJ opted to use him as the third line center.  He just came in and did his job.  I hope that he is able to resume what's left of his career after he heals.  What a brutal injury.

    Oh, come now. You may not like Julien's defensive style, but there's no coach on earth that tells his players not to try to score. They worked constantly on shooting drills in practice, but sadly guys like Ryder and Wheeler had bad scoring seasons. The coach can't put it in the net for them. And Julien was the same guy that coached them the previous year, when they were second in the NHL in scoring. What changed? Other than the slumps, Savard's absense for one, Lucic's for another, Krejci's injury-induced horribly slow start for another, and Chara's mangled finger (which handicapped his shot) for yet another. 

    As for Whitfield, this could certainly end his career. It's pretty sad when fans think it's no big deal, because it may not mean much of anything for the Bruins, it means everything to Whitfield, and he was a good soldier for this organization.

    You ask what changed so I will tell you.  What changed was the way other teams played against us.  Carolina showed teams that Cloode's system could be beat with a 2 man forecheck.  It took Cloode half a season and a 10 game losing streak before he would make any adjustments to his system.

    YUP !

    Marchand has had a habit of scoring in the big games throughout his young career.

    Granted that it's a big jump to the NHL, but the kid had one season in the QJMHL where he scored at a 2 pt. per game clip in the playoffs.

    Sobotka and Marchand might have brought some energy to an injury riddled lineup.

    It's all academic now, of course.

    What's with all these "good Saskatchewan boy" comments on the TSN site commentary anyways ?

    What kind of homer writes something like that especially when that country's biggest claim to fame is being mentioned in a Proclaimers' song :

    "I can tell the difference between margarine and butter.
    I can say Saskatchewan without starting to stutter."

    Who gives a f*** where the guy is from ?

    Marchand has scored in big games? He hasn't played in many big games as a pro. In the Calder Cup Eastern Conference finals 2 seasons ago, he was in the penalty box too often to make a big impact as Providence lost in 5 games to Hershey. I will agree that he has more offensive ability than Whitfield, but still, the guy isn't a prolific scorer. He is never going to be a big scorer. He can be an effect player in this league if he ever learns how to stop taking stupid penalties. I would never rely on him for offense. If you do, you're in trouble.

    Brad Marchand is a more prolific scoring machine than Trent Whitfield... 

    The kid scored 40 pts. in 20 games one season in the QJMHL along with some big goals for Team Canada in two WJCs (both Gold Medal winning teams)...

    Apparently, Julien didn't even recognize that the Bruins' biggest need in the Flyers series was for offense...

    One should go with the best player that a team has...

    Julien went with the more experienced, defensive minded player... 

    How dumb can a head coach be, really !

    Anyways, I hope Whitfield lands on his feet because at 33 years with an Achilles injury, his future NHL career looks pretty bleak...

    Re: There goes the bruins season

    And when I say "defensive minded" up there, I should also mention that he was a -43 playing in the AHL...

    Terrible injury to have, but this guy likely didn't belong in the NHL in the first place...

    Amazing that Julien stuck with him so long in the Flyers' series when he had no hits, no shots, no goals and didn't do much else in many of the games that he played in...

    Have to wonder what Julien was thinking ?

    Hey RMiller87. Take a pill. It's a long way from butt f**k Saskatewan to the NHL, and the kid made it. I don't need you to second guess that fact. People from Sasktachewan live and die for hockey, curling and the Roughriders. Get over it. It's an expression. Now RELAX !!!!
