In response to SanDogBrewin's comment:
Spark for chemistry. The Blues tried and tried Janney with Hull with zero success. Then Shanahan was paired with Hull and Janney started clicking with Scott Young eventually. This, as an example, happened because either Hull suggested it or Keenan just tried it to shake things up.
Bergeron with Eriksson will never work, it has not and won't ever. Very easy too see. Horton and Krejci clicked almost immediately. Thus far into the season there is still nothing there between Ignila/Krejci and it is almost February. Very easy to pick up that they don't know where they want to be found.
Julien put Bitz and Begin with Savard for Pete's sake. The lines can always be changed back, nothing has to be set in stone. This offensive set that Julien has of today is not going to beat Anaheim nor Chicago in a 7 game series. Not going to happen. This is very clear watching the games against good teams.
The blind love for Iginla's great accomplishments in the past is not allowing some to watch him make terrible decisions. It's like his mind has snapped back to being a rookie again. He needs to snap out of it with the TOI he gets or give someone else the chance.
HAHAHAHA! You dweeb....j/k. I understand what you are saying, but I'm going to say something else to you. This talk about the West going to be able to destroy the East. I love it that the West has so many teams that play Bruins hockey. In the East....Who can play Boston's style? There maybe 2 teams that might be able to match them physically for 7 games. Philly & Toronto, but who do they have that shows they can play that way for 4 rounds & who's stopping the puck? Bolland? Who I love, but IF that's who Toronto is hoping for to bring them over the hump? Good Luck!
The Ducks, Sharks, Kings, Blues, Hawks, that all play, or can play a similar brand of hockey. Then you have the AV's who probably are the speed team. There's 6 out of 8 teams. So, with the new format it's highly probable that one of the 3 teams in CA will be facing one another in round one. Then these teams out West are going to be beatened up like nobody's business & IF the 7th, or 8th seed do upset one of the "tough" teams they're going to have a tough go the rest of the way. So, whoever comes out the West? They're going to have a pretty rough 3 rounds of hockey. Last yr was half a season, this yr is a full one, plus Oylmpic's. You got 5 teams in the West that all play the same brand & it's the hardest brand to play. In the East you pretty much have only one that plays that way. And it's the team that's been thru the same trench's 2 out of 3 yrs. I love the Bruins chances!
