    i say just bring him along slowly  and benching can help if done correctly...just gives him  time to digest everything

    Miller, stay in Montreal so you can watch each time Kovalev comes back. Coach Julien stated that, in effect, he wanted more experience on the ice in the 3rd. IMO that's his problem in coaching. The Bruins needed to recover from Lewis, and establish a defensive capability. They have done that, and two years ago they had a mostly experienced roster so Claude was comfy and even played Lucic and Wheeler. Last year some of the "experience" left and injuries to important players disrupted the team, including Timmy's 5 hole problem and Ryder's lack of desire. Now Coach Julien has an elite rookie in Seguin; a solid rookie in Caron; and he reduces their time so his experienced players like Recchi[ no goals] and Wheeler [no finish}get more ice time. IMO that is not "good" coaching, just as shackling Seguin so tight is not using his resources effectively. Just a much more elderly coach's opinion

    Despite 4 unecssary drop passes and a bad game overall Seguin got called on when the game was on the line in the shoot out and scored unlike the vets. That was a tremendous vote of confidence in the kid by Julien despite his poor performance and he delivered for the coach. Nice job by the coach, nice job by the kid. Seguin is being handled well.

    He had a rough game and made more than a couple of mistakes. From what I've seen of him, I doubt he was sitting on the bench worrying about making more -- he was learning some lessons, and undoubtedly will learn many, many more before the season is over. It's not "punishment" for him to sit, more like  "discipline" as in the original meaning of the word, i.e. instruction.

    Ok, mistakes happen, but CJ has no idea how to use the talent he has. He has had Seguin shackled into a defensive model; he has saddled the kid with Recchi who couldn't keep up and now Wheeler who has his own learning curve. Anyone notice how Wheeler tries to dump the puck behind the defense and go retrieve it?? That's college play not NHL Perhaps Seguin should be skating on Bergie's left wing with Caron on the right. This is a good team with some weaknesses that coaching should help. certainly Julien's defense first has lowered goals against, but he has yet to establish a solid offensive game plan. If Kreji has to sit out, Paille is not the answer, as some "writers have mentioned. Recchi gives 200% but he is still not staying up with today's speedier players. However, the past two games have been against very good teams and not because the Bruins are lousy as some trolls indicate.
