    Kiddie Korps on D not wilting

    As a matter of fact, they are thriving.

    It will be very tough to sit any of them out.

    A tip of the hat to Dougie, Torey and Steve. You deserve it, boys.

    It's strange actually wanting Krug to have possession of the puck in the offensive zone.  His skating is so damn good he can find the shooting lane easier than anyone else back there.

    Bartkowski 19:12 TOI, led team in hits w/ 6, +1

    Krug 18:08 TOI tied for team lead in shots with w/4

    Hamilton 14:44 TOI

     

    This group has played with a ton of poise and have been very good.  Will be great to get back the healthy vets, CJ will have some decisions to make.

    I hope he decides to keep all three of them in. This team is playing too well to make changes at this very moment.

    If and when Dennis is healthy he will replace one of them. The question is which one, I think he'd replace Hamilton. Once the 3 were inserted into the line up they became a much more up-tempo team, fun to watch.

    They're playing awesome.  Against Pittsburgh (most likely), I'd prefer Seidenberg and Redden.  Crosby, Malkin and Neal are just a little better than Hagelin, Callahan and Nash.

    +2....I agree. I feel experience outways youth. Not to say I dont like what I see from these kids....I really like Barts play. Krug has been involved offensively. Id still prefer Hamilton and Bart over Krug. Theyre more stay at home D players and bigger bodied. Krug has been a joy to watch.

     who is steve ?

    Im really impressed with the 3 rookie D men, exciting that next year they all should B a regular.

    At this point, I'm not sure Seidenberg comes in in game 4, even if he's good to go.  Being up 3-0 gives Julien that luxury.

    Ha, ha!!  I think he was a quarterback for the Falcons back in the 80's...  pretty good one too.

    Obviously,  it's Matt Bartkowski.

    BTW...  B's future looks bright with these 3 defensemen maturing like they have.  Now Claude and Cam can focus on offense in the draft and FA.

    Re: Kiddie Korps on D not wilting

    One of the upsides of the kids' play is how it impacts PC's cap manipulations next year. If he let Redden Ference and Johnson walk, he'd still have 7 D with Krug, Bartkowski, Hamilton Chara, Seidenberg, McQuaid and Boychuk. That's $18.933 million to the D. He has 11 forwards under contract (not counting Savard) for $37.75 million, with a total committed payroll of 56.683. If Savard goes LTIR that leaves him 7.617 to get his keepers signed and two more forwards.

    A buyout to someone like Peverley gives enough space for the holes to be filled with promotions from Providence. Not ideal, but we knew it would be a tight cap year, and the performance of these three young D - and their entry level contracts - gives PC a lot more wiggle room.

    You can just tell the Rags were not expecting the increased mobility on the back end the kids brought.

    That team looks dumbfounded and for some reason Torts can't or is unable to make the necessary adjustments.

    NAS is right, though, the Pens are a very different animal and a new strategy is needed in the ECF.

    Assuming it's the Pens - it's still a 2-1 series - Ottawa wins at home tonight and it's a whole new ball of wax.

    There is a Steve Bartkowski somewhere. Maybe another sport - it rings a bell.

    In fact if the B's get through and it's the Sens, going with Krug may work as a counterbalance to Karlsson's speed off the back end.

    One thing I know for sure, no matter who the B's play adjustments are going to have to be made.

    Considering the fine job CJ is doing with the kids against the Rangers I now have full confidence in him doing so next round.

    This is the first time I have ever said  have complete confidence in CJ, by the way.....

    Good thing they got a chance, I mean good thing there were injuries or Bs fans wouldn't have found out what i've seen in Providence.

    The putdown is warranted, that's why it only rang bells.

    If the American and Canadian Football were legitimate sports - I would have remembered.

    That's a shot - but I agree.  I'll always chuckle when recalling a sports segment years ago involving the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL.  The broadcaster, might have been Lance Brown of CFTO said and I paraphrase "There were 25,000 spectators down at the SkyDome dressed as empty blue seats to watch the Argos and the Ticats."  Brilliant!

    Your hate for North American football is on par with my hate for that diving, ref chasing and riots in the stands sport known as soccer.
