    Has Soderberg Made You Forget Spooner?

    I knew he was going to be good, but he is into new heights.

    Now I think he can be even better. The stars are the limit.

    Not only does he show up, he is the best player every time he is on the ice. You can't take your eyes off him.

    If they had allowed him to play more, last year, and gotten him into some playoff games before the final, I believe the Bruins wouldn't have missed a beat with the Campbell injury and the Blackhawks would have been swept.

    But, that was then and this is now. Carlo will make us happy

    As much talent as Spooner has, you have to wonder now what Chiarelli might do with him. He's a PPG player in the AHL, nothing else for him to do down there. I do hope that PC gives Ryan a shot at riding with Soderberg as wing not as center. I think they will and his speed would help.

     

    PS. Faceoff excuse for Kelly is no longer valid, Soderberg doing just fine. The obligatory two pims a game for lazy hooking, since he got back, is getting old.

    This would have probably been better wording. Sounds better. 

    Yes he is playing awesome.......but why forget about Spooner ? He might contribute to the Bruins one day again or be a trade piece down the road.

    Maybe your title should suggest ..........has Soderberg made you forget about Kelly as a center. 

    It would be more appropriate considering the age of Spooner and the fact that he's still developing.

    San, that could not be mre correct. It seems his whole game has imprived since the move to center. But is this worse for Spooner? Before it was he can replace Kelly, B's can can move him, but now Spooner has a Soderberg in front of him whose game is rising.

    Soderberg has been real good, virtually all season.  PC said he would make an impact and he has.  Fits in well with the style, big body who has a little edge.  Glad the B's have him.

    Glad they have Spooner too.  I was impressed with his last run with the big club.  The speed jumps out at you, but was pleasently surprised by the amount of jam in his game.  Just turned 22, situation needs some resolution soon.  Would be ok if he was moved to bring in something to help now.  B's still have Khokhlachev in the system, who is 2 years younger.

    Soderberg has actually been quite complimentary about what Kelly has brought to the 3rd line since his return. Along with finally getting some time at center, Carl's comfort level of playing with Kelly again may have something to do with him reaching another level in his progress. This incarnation of the 3rd line has had some moments of pure brilliance. No need to mess with  something that is both working and improving at the same time. I also liked the shot on "Behind the B" that showed Carl and Loui speaking Swedish on the bench. Their chemistry also cannot be overlooked.

    Listen.  Spooner had 11 assists in 22 NHL games.

    He's clearly a beast and better than the likes of Devin Setoguchi.

    At the deadline, they can probably trade Krejci and play Spooner at first line center.

    Re: Has Soderberg Made You Forget Spooner?

    Yah i've seen quite a few posts suggesting Spooner is a 1st line center. But lets give up on a young prospect, AHL point per game player, for someone who had one good season only because he rode shotgun with Thornton and Marleau.

    That's the way to draft n develop.

    Re: Has Soderberg Made You Forget Spooner?

    No, not forget.  Go back to the thread on whether or not it was a mistake to send Spooner to Providence, because I assume those who were up in arms are your target audience here.  It seemed pretty clear in the games just before Spooner was reassigned that the Bruins had something with Soderberg at C and Eriksson on his wing.  Paille was doing well with them, but he wasn't germane.  The line was more dangerous offensively and better defensively if only because of how effective they were at maintaining possession in the offensive zone for long stretches.  Kelly coming back was a ripple until they sorted it out.  Long and short is that the Bruins are better the way they are now than they were with Spooner at 3rd line C.

    The one thing Kelly's better at than Spooner is working the wall.  He's a better fit as a wing given how they use that line.  Spooner will be back in the NHL before long.  The fact he has nothing left to prove means nothing - it's not about him - unless it means someone is willing to overpay to get him.

    Re: Has Soderberg Made You Forget Spooner?

    Soderberg did not play center with Spooner in the lineup. When Kelly returned he took over from Spooner at center and I am not seeing these wall, one on one battles you speak of. Kelly has been non-excistent. His faceoff game and forecheck has been terrible since 2012.

    It was a mistake to send Spooner down and a back track from what PC said earlier this year.

    Re: Has Soderberg Made You Forget Spooner?

    How is it backtracking when he's got four guys with less than a full season of NHL experience in the lineup, but he sent one guy back to Providence?  PC didn't say "We're going to play every young guy who plays well in Providence."

    Kelly's been back 6 games from an extended layoff.  He has a goal and an assist - for him, that's a goddamn scoring explosion.  He's even.  He's getting his legs back.  If you're talking about those six games, sure, he's been pretty quiet overall other than, yeah, the penalties.  But he has a long history of making the good, smart, small plays all over the ice, but especially along the wall that help you win hockey games.  I don't see any rationale against having a couple of players on the team who are defensive specialists, especially when one is Paille who occasionally makes you think "hey, maybe he could be an offensive force".

    And yes, I know Soderberg never played C with Spooner on the wing, but I don't think that matters.  It's not about Spooner.

    I think my thread about goalie embellishment was pretty good.  It got people thinking, debating, and involved.  And, minus Chowda's stupidity, it was fun.

    Incarnation---and re-incarnation. I agree the Louis and Carl chemistry is working and Loui is getting better.  Carl is finally getting a chance, and Kelly brings some conservative defense

    and smart but humble grit.  Just please get rid of Caron.  Spooner's 11 assists deserve recognition and a chance.  But who goes?

    My favorite one of those 11 was against Nashville.  Spooner chips it off the the glass from below the faceoff circle in his own end.  Soderberg picks it up at the blue line, skates it to the red line and chips it in.  Fraser crashes the net and scores.

    Spooner can't celebrate with him because he had peeled off for a line change a while ago.  Of course he deserves the assist based on NHL rules, but let's not mistake that for hockey prowess.

    I also like the one against Calgary in which he give it to Smith as his blueline, Smith burns two defensemen and scores. Assist warranted, but means nothing.

    You know who I saw on TV a couple of nights ago?  Ken Hodge Jr.  Before you continue acting like a petulent child and a dick at the same time, you should go look up his career.
