    where were you?

    Shawn Thornton just said that "we have some players who just don’t show up some nights...". Wonder who could some of them just be ?

    Re: where were you?


    The big Wheel, which is funny because he's been calling people out himself.

    Ryder is very very obvious. 

    I hate to say it because I love the kid, but Tyler.  For Tyler, he looks exactly like he's been told to do things x y and z and clearly he will be punished if he doesn't do x y and z.  And things x y and z aren't his strengths.

    One of those things, if he gets the puck in the neutral zone he's obviously been told that he must dump it in unless something else is going on.

    Meanwhile Marchand can dangle whenever he wants and even if he turns it over bad, that's not a problem.

    He should start by looking in the mirror and follow that by watching Shelley, Cooke and Richards embarrass the team's brawn.

    Bravo NAS! I have been wondering when you were going to have enough of the stupid attacks...
    I don't always agree with your observations, but I respect your insight and look forward to your posts. Thanks for sharing your thoughts...people can be small when they hide behind a computer screen. I get tired of the petty crap.
    Merry Christmas to you!

    Let me get this straight, you say you don't like Thorton's game, which I can understand. That is an opinion, of which I have no issue. But your comment wasn't that. You are clearly calling him out on his effort, and that is just plain wrong. To say that he isn't putting an effort out on most nights, if not all is inaccurate. I've posted a few times that the 4th line is the only one that accually works out there night in, night out and you've been dismissive about that. Again, fair enough, I'm a big boy. But after last night's game, that is a pretty lame comment to make about a guy's game. 2 goals and a fight. 7 goals on the year for a thug.

    I was trying to be somewhat funny in saying you are a crusty old f*rt, but "they" wouldn't let me use that word.
    So, I am sorry for my comments. Uncalled for, and untimely.
    Merry Christmas.

    If we all stuck to hockey instead of personal insults this forum would be much more interesting....for one I personally am happy with all the input from fans who are able to attend Bruin games and can experience it live....many posters are very knowledgable about the ins and out of hockey on and off the ice....cap issues...rules etc etc...I enjoy reading about all the info on junior hockey and the up and comers...people see things from different aspects and feeds me info I would never know being so far away from the team I have loved since being a kid ...most of us here all love and want our Bruins to succeed...to all who contribute so much to this forum...Merry Christmas and GO BRUINS!

    Did you see Ference jump when Lucic got leveled?  Have you ever seen Thornton do that?  Nope.  He'll talk about it later and maybe there will be a staged fight in a different game.  He is the goon, yet he strikes fear in no opponent.  I don't care if he scored four goals last night.  With the amount of ice time he gets, he should be scoring. 

    If he were doing his job instead of trying to be a finesse player, maybe other teams wouldn't be so quick to take liberties.

    As for blah blah the fourth line great job all energy blah blah blah:  The team has a difficult time scoring.  The guys who are most likely to score are on lines 1-3.  Each second over 5:00 that the fourth line is out there is one extra second that a guy who is likely to score is on the bench.

    Here's an idea:  Give the fourth line third line minutes.  Get rid of Ryder, Wheeler, Recchi and Bergeron.  Use that money to get a true first line winger and fund the $500K per slot fourth line.  It would look like this:

    Lucic-Savard-New Stud

    Seguin-Krejci-Horton

    Thornton-Campbell-Paille

    Caron-Colborne-Marchand

    I almost completely skipped this thread and glad that I didn't. NAS and I disagree on a lot (Thornton, whether you can make comparisons on players 30 games in, the fourth line generally, etc, etc), but at least he's got an informed opinion. Who cares if he doesn't treat you with baby gloves?

    High class video.  I love the combination of fast and slow-mo.  The Seguin deke is filthy.  The hits linking up with the big beats is great.  Bergeron saving the day in slow-mo was perfect.

    The only thing I would change would be the random audio.  Jack's voice just comes out of nowhere and then disappears for a while.  It doesn't seem to follow a pattern or really belong.

    Geez, let's refer to the Merry Christmas post...

    NAS, I think you're coming a little strong on perry (I know, you don't care).  Looked like a throw away comment to me and kind of a joke about passing gas. 
    A whole lot of F U's in your comeback seem uncalled for, and frankly a bit over the top.  The comment from perry wasn't something that we all don't get here and you're not above it either.  Looks to me like he came back and retracted it too. 

    That said, I tend to agree with your thoughts on Thornton (and most of your analysis to be truthful).  I think you're one of the better posters and like your frankness.  Thornton has a lot of courage but doesn't always choose to engage when he could be making a bigger difference.  A little too honest and too much of a gentlemen this year.  Fantastic game the other night though.

    Peace folks, and my sincere holdiday wishes to all.

    NAS , this is one of those cats and dogs moments I had talked about before. Don't get mad at me but I disagree with some comments you make about Thornton's play .

    Has Thornton ever jumped in like Ference did for Lucic ? You say no . I say yes . A player has to be on the ice when a cheap shot occurs. He was, he did and it was only about 3 weeks ago.
     
    http://www.hockeyfights.com/fights/99538

    You have said that all Thornton does is ask his opponent if he would like to fight ( staged ) and if he doesn't then he skates away . Agreed . But...........if you go to http://www.hockeyfights.com/leaders/players/ like I did and go through the fights of the leaders throughout the league you'll be hard pressed to find very many reactionary fights compared to the fights that are staged. In today's NHL Thornton doesn't do anything different then the rest of the tough guys in the league.

    Playing tough and banging bodies should be a priority for a 4th liner. Agreed totally . You say he doesn't . My view is so much different then yours. I see him taking the man when it is there . He is not a devastating hitter but takes the body. And as far as being a finesse player . I don't care if you're Derek Boogaard, if any player ( in the league ) has the puck in the offensive zone you don't discourage him from making plays to try to put the puck in the net. IMO Thornton has some offensive skills ( I know you don't agree ). Does a coach tell him forget to about that part of his game just because he is a tough guy ?

    Your idea about 4th liners not having more then 5 minutes per game isn't shared by the 30 coaches in the league . Here's proof , just click on TOI for lowest to highest .

    I know I'm not exactly spreading the Christmas cheer with this post ( and I apologize for that ) but for me hockey is a 365 day thing.

    Re: where were you?

    Good post Chowdah.  I posted yesterday but then deleted my post, it was just silly to read what was being said and maybe some should delete there's also.
    There's one aspect of Thorton's game that irks me at times,  it's when he has a player on the forecheck lined up and then turns away from him instead of finishing his check. 
    While watching some games with some buddies that disagreed with me I showed them about 3-4 times in one game how he didn't finish his checks.  Now they text me on my phone everytime he doesn't finish his check (even the other night on his best game as a Bruin).  Take notice .
    As for the 4th line playing the minutes , I've said it before , I'm okay with it.  There were many games that they pinned their opponents in their own zone (more than any other line) ,  sure they didn't score but they didn't get scored against .  They're setting up the Bruins other lines to come in and do the same.  Call it what you want,  game shifter, momentum , energy etc...  It works. As Chowdah mentions with his numbers with most of the other teams.
    Their was game that Julien on the road where Julien would have them start the period and that I disagree because as a coach you're asking for a mismatch when you don't have the last change.  As good as they are defensively they cannot match with some of the no1 lines out there.

    Now guys and gals please , enough with the un-pleasantries and all this apologizing on a forum,  we are talking hockey here ,  right ? Unless the threads subject is off the topic, hockey.

    Merry Christmas !

    Outside of the retaliation nice post NAS.  Thornton just does not have the skill set and is an aging NHL fighter.  Excellent set of lines proposed at the end.  Would like to know the logic behind those choices.  Cheers.
