    There is so much wrong with this statement it's not worth responding to.

    [QUOTE]1. Send two forecheckers deep and force them to go D to D behind the net-- pressure the puck handler. 2. Throw as many shots at the net--- some will get through or deflect off someone in the net or to someone in front of the net as TT is flopping all over the place. 3.  Pressure the points on the PP and force the Bruins to work along the boards. CJ's response:  Keep doing the same thing because the system will prevail. Reality:  teams with defensive speed and good forechecking will beat them consistently by forcing the Bruins into mistakes. Examples:  Carolina 2008/09 playofs                Philly 2009/10 playoffs                coming soon--- Mtl/Buffalo/Pittsburgh-- 1st rd 2011 playoffs. Solution:  See New Jersey end of 2006/07 regular season This team has little chance of going deep in the playoffs with CJ @ the helm.

    I think the strategies you list will cause teams more problems than the alternatives.  Every team.  On point one, which is the main one for most people, I think the real problem is that the Bruins have not been very good at generating (and scoring on) the odd man rushes that are the risk when you play an aggressive forecheck.

    As for the differing opinions that have been expressed in this thread, I think it boils down to whether you think the problem is a weakness in the system, or a result in the player's ability to execute.  I think it is more the latter than the former.
