    Recchi finds a way

    Marchand finds a way

    Krejci, Horton, and Lucic don't.

    When K-H-L make a move, that's it. They expect the move to work and if it doesn't, well that's that. The other team gets the puck. 

    No battle in those three. Nope. Token displays and nothing more.

    Lots of power play time. Lots of horrible, ineffective, lazy power play time.

    I actually think Kelly has looked pretty good doing what he does (if he was on Montreal we'd be noticing him all over the place because they're playing exactly his game), and Paille too. Some people still hate on Rex but he's one of the few reasons to watch these games. The guy is focused every second of every shift, and he actually seems to have a plan in mind to create offensively, rather than just going through the motions and wasting time. Marchand is another, and Bergeron may finally find a way to tap into some emotion and produce, but other than that, the "top" offensive guys just don't make enough plays. 

    And they don't seem to know why their approach fails. That's the real problem.

    Didn't even realize Recchi was playing.

    I like ol' Rexxy, but right now the B's could use the 1998 version.

    Re: Recchi finds a way

    Please enough of this.  yes - he is a sure thing hall of famer, has had a great career,...no question.  BUT - he is well past his prime and it is not fair nor realistic to ask and expect him to fill 2'nd line minutes.  He is a liability to the other 2 on the line and is depriving them of speed.

    He would be great on the 4'th line.  Classic example of stubborn / bad coaching of CJ.

    Thinking about it more, it seems as simple as this - he keeps his feet moving and expects the opponent's best effort, rather than standing still and expecting every move to work and being surprised when it doesn't.

    Marchand's the exact same way.

    They're the only two creating offense. Maybe they're the only two who can in the playoffs.

    Lucic and Krejci have shown in the past they are perfectly capable of getting it done in the playoffs.  2 poor games does not mean they don't know how to deliver.  They need to get it going right now though.  On the positive, Marchand has been as good as i expeceted in the post season, he's made for this time of year.  And yeah, Recchi continues to be a great asset when the pressure's on.
