    Rolston

    He was playing good on the third line,it might have been there best line for 3 or 4 games,i no Peverly came back,not really impressed with Caron with Lucic and Kreji either.

    Yeah I'm not a fan of Caron playing with Krejci and Lucic either. I'm sure once the playoffs start we'll see:

    Lucic-Krejci-Peverly
    Marchand-Bergeron-Seguin
    Pouliot-Kelly-Rolston
    Paille-Campbell-Caron or Caron-Campbell-Thornton

    Don't know how much the "Chara blocked shot" affected him, but Caron played VERY timid last night and was outmustled for most pucks.
    I thought Mottou played solid and deserves time over Corvo for sure as 7th dman.
    Rolston has been decent for what they are asking of him.

    These comments don't even deserve a response. Rolston is an experienced, and aging, player, with the emphasis on aging. Caron, just turned 21, has been a bonus for kreji's line for the past month. He hits as hard as any other checker, and continually keeps the puck in play. He will still make "rookie" mistakes, but not very often.

    Rolston has been a man on a mission. Caron on the 4th line makes that line ridiculously hard to play against.

    Caron-Campbell-Paille.

    That is a tough line to play against.

    Re: Rolston


    Agreed Bogie on most of your points but he is simply not first line material at this early stage in his career. He has only had one assist in his last ten games and is a -3 during that span despite playing the majority of the time with Krejci and Lucic.

    Yes, he is strong on his skates and has relatively sound positioning but he is not putting up the points. Hence, in the best case scenario he should not be on the team's #1 line. Maybe next year he will produce more consistently but he is not doing it now.

    Rolston's got the best one timer on the team.  I don't know how anybody can criticize his skill, especially at his age.  I'm looking forward to watching his line in the playoffs.

    Caron is probably the most underated puck possesion guy on the team.  You can't score goals if you don't have the puck.

    Well, we've all but clinched the second seed.  So if there was a time to experiment with line changes, it is now.

    I think that right now, Caron should be rotating through all lines, giving all critical Bruins one day off at a time.  

    Once the playoffs start though, Caron should be on the fourth line (if playing at all).  And before people jump down my throat, please tell me who you would demote out of the following:

    Seguin, Lucic, Krejci, Bergy, Marchand, Peverley, Kelly, Rolston, Poul

    The Kelly/Rol/Poul line has been completely on fire (for a while now) and shouldnt be messed with.  I understand that people tend to fall in love with youth, but you shouldnt prioritize rookie development over winning playoff games.

    Rolston has 13 pts in 19 games.  Caron has 14 pts in 46 games.  We need the scoring depth that Rolston's offensive production provides.

    Rolston stinks when the game turns into a physical game. This will be the Bruins downfall, a player like Rolston will not help.  Hes good in wide open mens league games. Mark my words!

    He throws plenty of checks and can take a hit just as any other forward.

    What the heck are you talking about?

    Rolston doesnt shy away from contact, in fact he's usually the first one in on the forecheck. What games are you watching?

    Agree. And I'm hoping Paille gets the nod over Thornton

    Can't argue with that, plus he has playoff experience.

    Re: Rolston

    rolston has been great for the b's so far. as far as who sits come playoff time, it's got to be caron. think back to last season, who sat to start the playoffs... one tyler seguin. clode will not put the youth out there if he doesn't HAVE to. if caron does get to play, i'd guess it would be with the 4th line. clode's track record speaks for itself, and it lead to a cup last season, i'm good with that. as far as d-men are concerned, corvo and mottau are the reserves come playoff time. man i'm excited for the playoffs to start. GO B'S

    Re: Rolston

    I'm honestly fine with whatever they go with. If you're bringing up the age of a player, either Rolston being old or Caron being young, that's a meaningless argument. All that matters is how they are playing, everyone is different at different ages. I think Rolston has been excellent for some time now. He's fast, physical, can shoot and making much better decisions. Caron is good, very strong, decently fast and skilled, but missing some intangible quality that I can't quite describe... I think he will develop it in time but it's not quite there yet. I have found the most impressive combos to be Rolston with Kelly and Pouliot and Peverley with DK and Lucic. I would also probably start with Paille on the fourth line because the playoffs are tense and his experience could be an asset. Especially against a young and inexperienced Ottawa team. But like I say, I'm fine with any combo, and I also think Caron does a decent job of recreating Horton's physical jam along the boards on the big line so that may be a good fit depending on the tone of a series.

    Re: Rolston

    Why do people want the 4th lines messed with?  That;s the best 4th line in the league with Paille, Campbell and Thornton.

    Caron is nothing more than a fill-in, IMO.  He and Pouliot can battle it out for time on the 3rd line.

    Lucic Kreicji Peverely
    Marchand Bergeron Seguin
    Pouliot/Caron Kelly Rolston
    Paille Campbell Thornton

    Also, I had a hunch Rolston would be giddy playing here.  Nice little addition, where he can be used in small areas to help.

    I think a more accurate way to put it is that Rolston's game does not match the 4th lines style.  He is not a grind it out cycle in the corners kind of player.  If he's in the line-up he needs to be playing with some skill and the type of players that can/will set him up for some shots, as that is his biggest assett.

    Caron can be effective on the 4th line, Rolston can not

    Re: Rolston

    Exactly. Don't touch the 4th line. I don't even get why Paille's been scratched of late, either.  Julien will push his buttons up and down the roster where he sees fit, but I don't see the need to be running around messing with lines.

    That 4th line is such a luxury, IMO. They all are tenacious, but slightly varied skill sets. Look no further when Julien put Thornton back in for the Cup last year. 

    The 3rd line appears to be the line that will have some options on the wing, but that's only been because of Horton's situation. Thankfully, Peverley is a good little versatile player.

    As for Caron, to me, he's a swing player now.  The kid's young. No playoff experience whatsoever.  If he outplays Pouliot down the stretch, great.

    Re: Rolston

    No question on Rolston's experience, which helps the Kelly line click, but so does Peverly with his speed. As noted above, Caron has the jam and puck control to help Kreji and Lucic. He does not, as yet have a scoring touch, but he does keep the puck in the offensive zone. He also played really tough and agressive on the 4th line, which we know Claude likes. Pouliot's speed and size are his biggest assets, but he does not play an entire game consistently which makes his playoffs a gamble. The forward lines are not the most glaring concern for the playoffs. Corvo needs to sit, and Mottau has smarts, bu lacks speed and size. Boychuck needs a brain infusion before every game, but he has size, toughness, decent speed. Zanon has been a steady and consistent D. There are concerns, but Rolston's experience helps to overcome some of them. Don't like him on the Pp point, but don't seem to have an alternative.

    Saw a stat on Brians pts production during the game last night.
    He has 5 times the points while with the B's than with 2/3 the season with the Isle
    To me, good pick-up PC

    Sounds like Rolston had no motivation to play well on Long Island. Doesn't really surprise me either.
