[QUOTE]Does anyone else here think that Krecji gets the short end of the stick all the time ? Come on face it, with horton and lucic on his line they did well, then he gets shipped off to ryder and wheeler because savard is back , savard hasnt earned his spot yet. Damn you guys, how does krecji ever get consistent like this. Its the same as i said about seguin needing a fixed line and bergeron as well. Maybe the dam coaching has finally realized this.

Have to agree that #46 is suffering from a bit of linematw whiplash. Can't blame his sub-par play lately completely on that, but I do believe a center works best when he gets familiar w/his linemates, anticipates their habits and strengths, and knows how to avoid their weaknesses.
I've stopped trying to believe in ryder and Wheeler. They show up for flashes then disappear for stretches. I'd rather see PC try and move one or both w/the Tor. draft pick as extra bait for a top 6 winger type who can really put the puck in the net, but I have no clue where or how to find one.
as for Savvy, I'm still solidly in his corner. Everyone's impatient w/him but we can't forget that it took Bergeron and an entire year to get back to his best after that serious concussion and while I hope it won't take Savvy quite that long, I do think we haven't seen anywhere near his best hockey yet--and if they're patient, we will come the spring. If the Bruins are going to the playoffs it could be like getting a whole new player at just the right time if he starts finding his game by mid-to-late March.
Also would hold onto Krejci and Bergy b/c I believe in being strong up the middle, and along w/the goaltending this may be the B's best asset.
I do fully agree w/SanDog and others, however, who have suggested that if NOTHING changes roster-wise, we're staring at a 2nd round KO at best. I understand that's debatable. I understand that they were "supposed" to lose to Buffalo last year (and would have if Rask hadn't stolen the series), but depending on those X-type of factors is too risky. They need upgraded scoring punch, and another slick skating offensive-minded Dman wouldn't hurt either.
Piece of cake, right?
