    Who's in, who's out for Game 7?

    Three questons.
    Mottau or Corvo?
    Thornton or Caron?
    What is McQuaid's status?

    If everyone that played in game six is healthy, go with the same lineup, Motteau did not look out of place. If the Bruins win and McQuade is ready for the next round get him back in there. I miss Thornton but we need Caron to crash, bang and maybe get a goal. Go Bruins.

    Mottau stays in, Caron stays in. Thornton out, Corvo out, and please stop with the hope McQuaid can play routine. He's Nathan Horton out, if there is such a term. Forget about him. I love the guy, but he's done this postseason--concussion.

    I had never heard an update on McQuaid, did not know the degree of his concussion. If he is done, the Bruins will miss him but Motteau played well and should continue to play ahead of Corvo. Adding Zanon and Motteau are proving to be godd moves by Chiarelli.

    At first it was a cut to the head, but I saw that hit on McQuaid, that was a concussion hit, just like the Savards/Hortons...it was hard, it rattled his helmet. He got seriously hurt, and the B's have been sitting here with the day-to-day approach. Well, if he's not healthy now, when will he be? Answer, he's done. If he somehow plays in these playoffs, I'll be surprised.

    Mottau.
    Caron.
    No McQuaid. It's weird how quiet the team has been on his condition. He's not practicing as far as I know and they have not used the C word, but what else could it be? Even if he were cleared to play I doubt they would toss him in to a game 7 as his first game back. Not when they have depth. (see Mottau above)

    Cl;aude should have had Caron in from game one, and he should use the kid properly. 4 minutes is not proper use of a big, fast and agresive young guy. Claude's hold down the rookies is an old hat decision. Caron proved he could play during the season, once Claude allowed him to play. Look how well the rookies are playing for Philly. The CAPS are big guys, Caron can go toe to toe with them, and Erskine just blows Thornton away, plus Thorny doesn't have the skills. Wonder if Peter is rethinking that contract extension. He could always use Thorny for Public Relations.

    Please don't say that Quaider is done for good (for this year).  I am still holding out hope.  But if he's not even skating yet that scares me.

    Bergeron was concussed in game 4 against Philly last year but came back in a week. It's hard to predict how long any player will be out due to a concussion. Your plan to assume the worst is probably the way to go though. I say whatever's best for the player.

    If there was one thing that McQuaid offered that is missed is that he could easily supply the "heavy" element, the designated fighter, the role that Thornton has. I like the idea of having that intimidating element (Lucic and Campbell certainly also fill that role if need be) dressed. However, this Caps series is about talent not who's more intimidating. Rather have the skater in Caron than the boxing gloves of Thornton, who I'd admire but the B's have already learned that in a skater/speed series, he's just not made up for that. He becomes more important in a physical series where the other team is throwing more weight. The Caps have been physical, don't get me wrong, but Thornton's importance on the 4th line in a series where the B's were not scoring is moot. He is not important to the team winning. He's a nice element. McQuaid is important because he's turned himself into a very good defenseman, and he can hit, and he would even turn a Zanon into a healthy scratch. I like Mottau, I want to see more of him. I think he's a smart player and liked his decision making with passes during Game 6. Zanon has been shaky, which is mind-blowing since I thought he played very well up until midway this series.

    Danny, I too find it strange that Zanon played better when paired with Corvo.

    Would rather see how well he plays paired with Mottau instead. Really hope it's #27 instead of #14 for Game 7. Corvo has me reaching for the Tums every time he touches the puck.

    Thanks for the thoughts. Early returns indicate not much faith in Corvo. And Caron seems to be the pick for lots of you.
    The question about McQuaid was because I've heard nothing, which I attributed to being out of state for a week. It's interesting to me that we're hearing nothing, rather than even an occasional update.

    Corvo was hurt. That shot that he took looked devstating. Right to the back of the leg where there is minimal padding.

    tough to picture our D last game w/o the 2 pickups at the deadline, Kampfer and bodnarchuk most likely would have been playing in an elimination game,   well done PC.

    Bergeron is in Julien just mentioned on the Bruins Blog. Now the question is Mottau or Corvo ? It has to be Mottau in a game 7 as well as uh Joe has played.

    "The Bruins needed Caron’s flexibility in case Bergeron couldn’t fulfill all his duties. Had Bergeron been limited in Game 6, Peverley would have moved to center, while Caron skated as the No. 2 right wing. In that position, Caron would have been a better fit than Thornton." (Fluto) http://www.boston.com/sports/hockey/bruins/extras/bruins_blog/ I think it depends on how Bergeron is.. I think it was made to look like Thornton for Caron for goal potential to downplay the concern/questions they had about Bergeron lasting the game. Downplay his injury and not put as much of a target on him. (but the Caps prob noticed fairly fast he wasn't taking face offs.) I just hope they don't target him bad because we need him.

    Null, I thought the marginal slashing call on Pouliot in game 5 would have shut you up for a bit.  Or the countless interference non-calls.

    leave well enough alone - same line up.

    I like Caron's flexibility in case someone gets hurt he can fill in.
