    Torey Krug is driving you nuts?

     



    Four goals fueled a hype machine that we hadn't seen for a player in quite a while.

     

    And for the rest of the playoffs?

     

    He was gone.

     



       It was not just the goals. It was the skill set he displayed, that got people excited.

     

    Also, it was the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and he was facing the Rangers, Penguins, and Hawks. That's a pretty tough assignment to begin your NHL career with.

    It will be interesting to see him against the weaker teams. He could have a big impact on the long dormant PP of the B's.




    I agree Big and it was only sensible that he had to take a step back after the record start he had.  Count me among those who think he made significant positive strides in his development last year. I'm excited to see how he does in the future.

    after the Rangers series they insisted on having Krug on the 2nd PP unit. Instead I would've preferred Chara playing less minutes on the PP,  not start on the 1st unit and play Krug more on PP.

    Yes.  I hope he fixes the powerplay.  You know, without a good powerplay, this team is going nowhere.

    Still nothing on Rookie Camp?  All this Behind the B stuff is pretty poor methadone for those of us jonesing for a dose of hockey.

    You probably dont champion prospects as much others On BDC. You did like last Cunningham last season and he has progressed. 

    Do you still have hope for Craig ? Or is he now Crap ?

    Even a big shiite starts out as a little Crap.  Prospects have a harder chance with cj, he will stop all creativity until u play his system and then some.  Whomever gets a chance will really have to know their D game.

    Show me a coach who just throws his creative rookies out there to sink or swim and I'll show you the coach of a lottery team who won't be the coach for long.

    CJ is not special in choosing his roster based on what he thinks will get him wins rather than which rookies he think are creative and fun to watch.  Can we just retire that whole line of argument?

    Re: Rookie Camp

    The Floridas, Dallas's and Islanders have too play prospects because they barely spend above the cap floor. They have no choice, Chiarelli and Julien have choices. 

    How can you blame a small market teams coach ?

    They recently won the Cup with a poor powerplay.

    They recently were in Game 6 of the Cup Final with a poor powerplay.

    It's more fun to watch when they score more goals, but I haven't seen one single item that suggests that a good powerplay translates into more success for this Bruins team.

    Kulikov, Gudbranson, Huberdeau, Shore, Petrovic, Howden, Bjugstad and Barkov.

    Everyone else is just noise.

    how would it hurt this team to have a good pp?

    would a good pp make this team worse?

    would a good pp be no fun to watch?

    might a good pp let them win game 6?

    would a good pp warm the cockells of the Badhab's heart?

    1.  Adding to the powerplay could take away from other facets that they do well.

    2.  See #1.

    3.  I stated that more goals would be more fun.

    4.  See #1.

    5.  Yes, but so would torching a restaurant with rude, dancing waiters, so the BHab's desires don't always translate into quality ideas.

    I can't imagine any use of a video.  It won't be like my training camp videos from training camp 2010. 

    I'll take a bunch of pictures, however.

    Re: Rookie Camp

    The PP questions come down to "boy, I wish they had different personnel or played a different system."  If they had personnel more adept at the PP, they'd have a better PP regardless of who's diagramming it.  Four years straight of lousy PP tells me it's not just coaching.  If a better PP means personnel changes - probably in the top six, and probably at least one C - I'm not sure I care. 

    That said, I'm not sure the PP won't be much better this year with Eriksson and Iginla.  Iginla's had double digit PPG 11 of the last 13 years (counting last year's 6 as 10 over 82 games), and he's never had fewer than 8.  Eriksson has a 10 PPG season to his credit, and, though he hasn't been a consistent PP triggerman, I think he has the skills for it.

    I think they have the skills.  I think it's coaching.  Savard was just one guy and if my memory serves me right, their pp was decent with Sarvard.  And just one guy shouldn't make that big a difference.  Now their PP just doesn't look right, it looks like they are passing it for the sake of passing it.  Other teams look like they are setting up someone for a shot.

    Anybody have any stats on when they pull their goalie?  It seems to me they play better 6 on 5 than they do 5 on 4.
