    A Good Problem To Have; Defence options

    There was a thread started on this topic, BEFORE yesterdays (Game #2) game.

     

    The prevailing 'wisdom' then, with the usual certitude, seemed to be;

     

    (that if/when Redden, Seidenberg and/or Ference return, this is what will happen)

    "Krug sits first.

    Hamilton second.

    Bartkowski third."

     

    Is this still the case? Is this what will happen? This could be a real mind-melter for Claude

    Me? I say, the kids stay until a change/tweak is required. The foot speed and fast-focus on the puck retrievals and subsequent break-outs is a new one, a new look for Boston's defence. I like it.

     

    The team's winning and looking pretty good and tidy doing it.


    Let Seidenberg, Redden and Ference rest a little longer

    How was the Bruins defensive zone breakout during the Leafs series ?

    How would you compare Redden and Seidenberg carrying the puck out of the their own zone versus how Krug and Barkowski do it ?

    Why would a coach change something that is working ?

    Right now, if Seidenberg is ready Tuesday, he goes in and Hamilton sits.  After that, the calls are more difficult.  I don't think either Redden or Ference get in unless they are clearly, absolutely 100% healthy, and even then I don't think both get in.

    Krug is making it easy to keep him in the lineup - for now.  That could change if Tortorella is able to use last change to exploit that pairing in game 3.

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that your logic prevails because it is mine as well.

    I agree.

    Right now , I think the kids keep playing, there is no need to have the vets come back too early. The Bruins seem to be a much different team with the kids, especially with Krug and Bartkowski playing so well . It is a nice problem for CJ to have. We are seeing a much quicker team with these young guys . If it ain't broke , don't fix it . Seidenberg will be the only one that will displace any of the three kids, if he is ready to come back, and in my opinion , Hamilton might be the odd man out .

    At the very least Krug will say. Hamilton was on the ice (with Chara) for both Ranger goals last night which means he could be subbed for Ference or Reddon depending on who's ready first. I'm under the impression that Seidenberg might take longer to come back.

    Seidenberg is guaranteed a spot in my lineup when he is healthy.  Hamilton is now my first man to sit.  I think he is playing with low confidence right now.  I think a game upstairs is generally helpful for struggling players.

    Pretty much how I see it.

    CJ will go with veterns....Seindenberg will replace Krug....I do hope that Redden is a black ace. I would like to see Krug over Hamilton but I don't think that will happen. It's freakin amazing how that lil Krug is not noticed in our own end and yet his presence is felt in the Rangers end. Love that kid. He's the Mac Heron of the CFL....the Vega with a Cadaliac engine !!!

    Re: A Good Problem To Have; Defence options

    In the past CJ has worried about his left right match-ups (we also know about his tendecies towards vets) Sitting Hamilton would keep Seidenberg on his playing side I believe. I,m with the majority Krug & Bartkowski in behind Chara on the left side. Seidenberg, Boychuk & Mcquaid on the right. Love to see the B,s steal one in NY!
