    Chara infront on the PP

    We need the Zdeno Chara that played in Ottawa. Averaging over 130 PIM's, and having a +/- in the 30's.. and used to stand at the top of the crease on the power play.

    Chara has been a pylon, and i dont think im the only one who has questioned his leadership capabilites.  I dont know if its cause hes getting older, or if julien doesnt want him sitting int he box, but the chara that used to fight, was the $7 million hero we wanted.

    The power play has struggled. And i think they have tried everything.  Excpet for chara in front like he did many times in Ottawa. I dont know if anyone saw Pronger doing the "avery like" screen, but Phili wasnt scared to put him down there.
    I would love to see this:

    I agree that Chara is being underutilized; yes he should park himself in front and screen the goalie; he would probably occupy a couple of opponents and create havoc in front. CJ needs to come out of the shell and have his team take chances rather than worry about what if.
    I believe that's the reason NJ let him go. He's one track mind.

    I would give that a go again even though the B's have tried that on occassion.. But we have Lucic that can do the samething why doesn't he park himself there?  I love looch but sometimes I think he is trying to be to finesse whhich he is not.  He needs to get himself more garbage goals.

    If putting a huge body in front of the net was a good idea, Boogaard and John Scott would be $5M players.

    I like this idea, it definitely worked in Ottawa....he can't lug the puck, its almost embarassing to watch, and keeping it in the zone might be even more embarassing!!!  have him plant out front & plug away; just hope an errand Boychuck bomb doesnt snap his ankle hhahaa.

    Your right... It may not be a good idea. But we have a $7 mil player we need to get more out of.

    yes that lasted for a little while in Ottawa but he was soon put back at the point.
    The PP needs a quarterback, a player that can bring the puck across (instead of dump in) and setup. It's worked okay with one of the forwards doing this but Bruins are back to struggling.  This setup, carry the puck player is best if it's a d-man although if Savvy get healthy and in game shape fast it could work.

    Re: Chara infront on the PP

    I said this for the past 3 seasons when the PP struggled. I don't expect that for every PP. Just on games where they can't get nothing going. However, it's useless to have anyone in front of the net if the shots don't get through. The other thing is. I have a feeling that the guys on the PP are too afraid to get in front of Z's shot. I mean the guy broke a teammates femer! One of the strongest bones in the body! That's even with protection in the area.

    If Boogard had hands that were useful than it would be a good idea.

    Re: Chara infront on the PP

    i understand the thought procees of putting him infront of the net but how do you utilize the hardest shot in the nhl hes almost to big to be put in front of the net his stick is to long to reachg those intight rebound chances put lucic there or something leave chara alone

    The Bruin PP needs some movement. Plain and simple. Planting a big tree in front of the net won't help if everyone is standing still and passing the puck to each other.

    Bruins make it easy on the other team's PK by passing the puck around with nobody moving. The opposition gets a breather.
