    CJ's style


    Old time hockey in the new NHL. It won't work. You end up with a mediocre team no matter how much talent you have.

    In spite of Cj the Bruins have enough talent to make the playoffs but it is such a waste to watch this coaching style hamper the players including the young players who will never gain confidence under this system.

    The Bruins defensive numbers look good on paper but that is because of their outstanding goalies. If they didn't have the goalies they have now they would be on the bottom.

    CJ can't adapt or is unwilling to adapt to the new NHL. Other coaches have realized this and when they play the Bruins even if they have less talent they know what's effective against the Bruins. And they ajust

    On the other hand CJ doesn't budge in his style . He doesn't adapt to the teams style he's playing against and doesn't seem to have a clue about making changes between periods.

    I think he'd be a great coach 10 years ago under the old rules. But this is a much faster offensive oriented NHL

    [QUOTE]Are you guys from Moon or what? This team couldn't score all year last season and all we added is Horton. So now we are extremely offensively rich? We don't have anybody who can score even 40 goals now. Lucic has outside chance and that's all. Look at the stat sheet and you will see that our team strength in net and on defense (Chara, Bergy, Thomas). Everybody playing from their strongest position and right now we are playing defense first. As soon you have Crosby, Stamkos or Ovi in your line up, call me and we can discuss offensive play schemas.

    I think the point we're trying to make is that it's the coaching style that'e happering the offensive flow and in turn keeping players from reaching their scoring potential.

    Crosby wouldn't be scoring as many goals under CJ's system

    No, what is complained about is the fact that he gives them the same amount of ice time no matter how they are playing and no matter what the situation is.

    Totally agree. Claude did the job of reclaiming a hockey team from the Dave Lewis debacle, but, now it is time for Claude to adjust or move on. I do not like the strictness of his 'System". Often you will see Seguin or Horton or Marchand react to a puck or opposing player, and then back off in order to conform to Claude's rules. If Claude's dictates were positive then Ramsey would have emulated them in Atlanta, but he did not. Prior to the Bruins/Atlanta game, Claude was quoted as saying " they play just like we do". Unfortunately, for the Bruins, the game proved that Claude's perspective was wrong. Too often this year, the Bruins have not been prepared for their opponents, and cries for lack of passion or lack of commitment ring out. If it were one or two players that critique may be correct, but when it appears to be the whole team structure , that is definitely Claude's responsibilities. However, once again, Claude is quoted as saying" I have no idea what is wrong". It is time for Peter and Cam to re- evaluate Claude's performance.

    TOI reports show this simply isn't the case.  He may give them more time than many other teams give their fourth lines, but if the team is trailing he shortens the bench just as expected.

    I love the cognitive dissonance of saying the team has a ton of offensive talent, it just can't score; the defense is brutal, it just finishes in the top 5 statistically every year.

    If the offensive talent is really there, this system doesn't prevent you from scoring goals.  Look at the Devils.  The system there doesn't change for anyone, but Mogilny, Elias, Gionta, and Richer have all topped 40 goals at one time or another.  They've routinely had at least one guy in the mid-30s with 3-5 other guys in the mid-20s.  Do they score 300 as a team? No.  And their secondary guys don't put up big numbers, but that's not the point.  The point is, if the Bruins really had this top gear offense being granny-driven down the side streets by CJ, you'd see at least one or two guys still put up big numbers by capitalizing on all of the turnovers the system generates.  You don't see that.
