    Now that I've watched the team, I wouldn't make that change.  The only thing I'm considering right now:  if Marchand puts it together before Iginla scores, I might give him a shot with Lucic and Krejci.

    Something i thought would happen is putting Lou E on with Krec and Lucic and Iginla with bergeron and marchand, simply because iginla is a tough guy who works harder and lou i think would get more space on the lucic line.

    Might see it yet.

    Is there a single person here that thought Thornton would outscore, in the NHL, Ryan Spooner, in the AHL?

    How long before Bruins can't blame chemistry anymore ?

    How many games ?

    Are the Bruins laying blame to bad chemistry? Sorry, I missed that SanDog.

    I have only seen impatient Bruins fans complain about not scoring 4-5 goals a game.

    Spooner is not a 4th line wing in the NHL, stats aren't even comparable.

    Yep, exactly what I was thinking. Move the Newbies around.

    It just looks like they just can't score. Not that they aren't trying, but that they CAN'T. They look slow, and easy to control. Colorado made them look like a bunch of beer leaguers. It was pure luck that they beat CBJ, if not for the soft goal Kelly got against Bobo. Detroit was a full step ahead. If not for the deflection off of Loui's knee, this game isn't even close. 3 Games in a row that they are hard pressed to get anything going. I didn't see the first 2, and beating Detroit 4-1 was pretty impressive, but there isn't a lot of spark to their game.

     

    We are all probably getting worried about nothing. After what they did to the Leafs, I have a hard time doubting them, but that isn't it. They just look so slow.

    I don't need to see comments from Julien or PC to know scoring under 3 goals a game is not good.

    How many games before you start with callups or re-shuffling lines ?

    Impatient ? Or am I seeing something that does not look good becasue i've watched hockey long enough.

    I don't equate not liking Iginla taking wrist shots outside of the dots to panic.

    You got it San. You and I are seeing things we don't like. It doesn't take someone to point it out. It is early in the season, but so far....

    "Iginla is a notoriously slow starter..." - shupe, and half the world.

    I'm less concerned about Iginla's shot selection than I am pleased that he looks to take the shot when it's there.  Not worried about him, but in terms of when you start trying to goose him, I'd say 20 games.  So far, they've lost two games by, basically, two goals (plus an ENG).  They lost to a team that hasn't lost yet, much to everyone's surprise, and to the Red Wings.  They go through some kind of fallow period with goalscoring every year - sometimes more than one.  The best thing that can happen here is that the lines as they are catch fire, so as long as the team is still winning more than it's losing, and they're playing good, complete hockey - don't fix with what ain't broken.

    Debating Spooner v Thornton with Stanley?  Pointless.

    That's very fair. I love that iginla turns and fires but he has taken so many shots way out above or in the faceoff circle and those are easy pickens for even a backup goalie. Jarome's shot is so heavy, i'd just like to see him shoot more much closer. I know that is not always there but so many times he's had room to skate up and take something closer this season.

    60% wins should get us in the playoffs, right? If we can do that and stay healthy...

    No you're right but Thornton being in the line up is a wasted roster spot ...how about Thornton on the gallery, Caron on the 4th and Spooner in..

    I could see Caron taking Thornton's spot for a few games when Soderberg gets back.

    Re: BRUINS an 8 cylinders working on 7

    The Bruins are 3 and 2 to start the season. I am not making comments about the Bruins play, to early to judge. I will wait after the the Bruins play 10 or more.

    We traded Joe Thornton, Kessel and Seguin. The last three years the B's been to the stanley cup finals.

    We chanted thank you Kessel and now he playing better with the leafs then he did with bruins.

    Thornton is happier in the west coast system.

    Seguin may be the next thing but don't seem that way now but ????????? good luck kid in new conference.

    Out of all three of these players, i am thinking kessel so far is the lop sided deal. Unless Knight and Hamilton can show if they are the next one to step up. We got Reilly Smith and Erikson for Seguin.

    The Thornton deal  and now the kessel deal is in the history book. I am not losing sleep over this.

    Getting rask for raycroft was a great deal and lets not forget about Samsonov going to Edm. and eventually Lucic.

    As for Shawn Thornton well every team has one and at least he will not pull a stupid move like Lapierre just did.

    Smith Soderberg Caron could possibly be the future third line but Kelly will need to be the third line center for now.

    Agreed. And scoring under 3 goals per game is not great, but not so bad when you are only giving up under 2 goals per game.

    Let's see how they play through Florida this week...

    Re: BRUINS an 8 cylinders working on 7

    I remember Flame fans freaking out about Ig's & his slow starts. How many x have we seen him turn into a complete scoring machine after the Christmas break? I'm not worried about Iglina at all. Matter of fact I'm not worried about anything on this team. People complaining about speed? They lost 2 players that had some, but what did they do with it? It's laughable to hear people complaining about Louie scoring off his knee, but after 3 games he had 0 goals people were saying he needed a lucky bounce to get going. This place is funnier than Yuk Yuk's sometimes!
