    I think Iggy is trying to do to much and he just can't do what he wants.  All he needs to do is play a Recchi type game.  Maybe he shouldn't be on the top line?

    [/QUOTE]

    Been saying that for weeks.... Maybe one day Julien will realize also... Eriksson should be given a chance on DK line... Put Iggy on second line and move Smith to 3rd....very simple...  

    [/QUOTE]

    No.  Iggy's not helping at all.  Don't mess up the second line with him.  Maybe fourth, since everyone seems to want to sit Thornton.

    what has Eriksson done to get promoted ?   At the beggining of the season we said he needed time to get used to playing on the Bruins,  then the injuries came but when he has been playing I haven't seen a sign deserving to play on the 1st line.

    Why would Julien change 2 nickles for a dime ? I don;t think he can impact the lines enough to warrant the change and besides they're still playing well enough to win games and are in 1st place in their division.

    I think years of being called Iggy have left him unable to perform as a man.

    Thought the B's played well, they play like that and they'll win alot more thna they lose. Loved seeing Marchand play the way he did. Sick move by Spooner in the sho otout, wish he buried it.

    Exactly, kel.  Sucks to lose in the SO but it would be more concerning if they were totally outclassed today - which they weren't.  They went toe to toe.

    The PP in OT gave the Hawks more zone time in the final 5 minutes, but based on the chances each team had in the last 8-10 minutes, you'd have to say the Bruins had at least as good a chance of winning that game in OT as the Hawks.  I'm not at all bothered by losing to them in a s/ootout.  Game was a tie.

    This team is playing to Claude's game plan of defense, defense, defense. Only my opinion, but I don't see Eriksson adding much value. He gets into net front, but isn't strong enough to control puck or score. and it seems like Iginla knows where to be, but is not picking the holes for scoring like Marchand does. Don't want to beat a dead horse, but Thornton doesn't add the same value that the rookie replacements did.  Injuries to the defense are also hurting since most clubs know, and show, they can bulldoze Krug. It appears that change is necessary

    In the payoffs we've seen them go to OT in games like this , just very unlucky with bounces that went in against Rask while the Bruins dominated. Yup the luck factor. 

    The big positive is and confirms my belief that the Bruins can matchup against the best of the west when they have something to prove.  The game against the Ducks Marchand got a very borderline penalty otherwise at that point it was a 1 goal game with the Bruins coming on strong. Easily could have tied it on their PP.

    I still say missing something for the playoffs. Don't ask me what because if I knew I would be challenging Stanley for assist GM on the Bruins.  Maybe Book that's a good thread for you to start.

    Without Hamilton and Kelly, and with Loui fairly fresh in his come back, I have no complaints.  I think they played well.  If it was a playoff game it would have been decided in real hockey in OT.  After 3 periods it was 50/50 chance.

    On purpose or not the rule is there to protect everyone in the building on or off the ice.

    Throwing broken sticks is reckless and careless.

    P.S. Still complaining about the officiating I see.

    I thought the Bruins chances were waaay less that 50/50 (of getting two points) after Bartkowski's penalty carrying over into the OT. The PK held up and the Bruins actually got a few really good chances in the remaining OT.

    Campbell --> not-so-good with hitting the open net on a 2on1, but very good at hitting his own players in the chops on a spin-and-dump(Paille).

    [/QUOTE]

    Very dumb play on his part. You don't toss a piece of lumber in the air with other people around. Imagine if a player or fan got hit in the eye with that. Broken sticks should be dropped to the ice.

    [/QUOTE]

    Exactly Dez! Imagine how Toews would feel if he hit some 4 yr old in the face with it.

    Doesn't matter, you're not allowed to throw your stick...Period!

    [/QUOTE]

    per NHL Rules 75.4 Misconduct

    (ii) Any player who deliberately throws any equipment out of the playing area. At the discretion of the Referee, a game misconduct may be imposed.

    Regardless of whether it was intentional, it is a 10 min misconduct penalty.

     

    Also per NHL Rules 10 - Sticks...

    10.3 Broken Stick – Player - A broken stick is one which, in the opinion of the Referee, is unfit for normal play.

    A player without a stick may participate in the game. A player whose stick is broken may participate in the game provided he drops the broken stick. A minor penalty shall be imposed for an infraction of this rule.

    By 'drop' I interpret that it must be dropped immediately and in the vacinity where the player is on the ice...they can't leave it across the blueline in the offensive zone or across their own goal line. They can't throw it 'accidentally' into the feet of their opponent.

    It is possible that he could have recieved a 2 and 10 for that play.

    I thought his blank stare was priceless though - 'What, me? What for?!?"

    Correction: Stick must be deliberately thrown...referee must have thought it was 'accidentally on purpose'.
