    Re: Is Mark Stuart a #2 defenceman?

    Stuart would be no worse and probably not any better on the PP than Seid, why Seid is there is just beyond me.  Pc gave him a big raise that noone else would give him, so now he is a PP specialist as well.

    Stuart is a very competent d-man, he was drafted as a first rounder in the deepest draft of all time. He is not a #1 or 2, but could fit in nicely anywhere as a #3.  He is a very tough, stay at home in your face player, who could easily be used as a shutdown guy, but to be a true #1 or #2, he would need an upside on the offensive and I don't see that happening, def not under Cj.

    Sieds has as many points in his last 5 games and Stuart has had all season.  In fact Stuart has the worst pt/game average of any Bruin D-man with over 2 games played.  How many teams would put their worst offensive D-man on the PP?

    Re: Is Mark Stuart a #2 defenceman?

    I have said because the players have said that Stuart was the #2 in strength behind Chara. I never would've had a problem putting him in the #4 slot until he got hurt last season, but right now I voted him as 5. On the PP? Not before Boychuk, Sieds. I'd put him there before Ference.  I'd still keep him over McQuaid at this point. By the end of the season that could change.

    Goat, I have wondered about Seidenberg's offensive bit.  He was rushing a lot last year, before injured, and getting some good scoring chances.....creating them.  But this year he is much more "stay at home" while Kampfer goes flying off like a forward.  Wonder why Seids is laying back so much.  He's a good shot blocker, but it would be fun to see him rush on the O more.

    Stuart is a number 4 defenseman, his health is becoming an issue.  Seidenberg is like Stuart, Boychuk, and Ference, doable with the CJ system.

    Boychuk (who has 9 more games and four more points than Stuart) has played 53:16 on the powerplay and has two more points pp points than Stuart who has played 4:35.

    McQuaid does not play PP and he has a better points per game average.  McQuaid is already better offensively than Stuart and I do not see anyone calling for him to be on the PP.

    How is it determined that McQuaid is better offensively?  When I watch the games, I see McQuaid throw a lot of pucks in the zone.  Not much else.

    Mcquaid has 7 points in 34 games for point per game average of .21
    Stuart has 4 points in 29 games for a point per game average of .14

    Plus McQuaid plays most of his minutes with a poor offensive partner in Ference and Stuart has played most of his minutes with Seidenberg.  On top of that Stuart has also averaged almost 4 minutes more TOI than McQuaid.

    Mark Stuart? He is a 5 or a 6...some nites he's a borderline NHLer. He has no offensive game. At best he could be a 4 when he is at his best

    McQuaid's offensive output:

    2 points vs. Carolina

    Assist #1:  Stops the puck at the point, throws it behind the net.  Horton wraps it around to the other defenseman who scores. 

    Assist #2:  Gets the puck in the defensive zone at the circles, raps it off the glass to Chara who takes it the length of the ice and scores.

    1 point vs. Philly

    Assist:  Throws it on goal. Ryder tips a weird one in.

    1 point vs. Buffalo

    Assist:  Gets the puck at the point off the faceoff, shovels it to Ference who scores.

    1 point vs. Atlanta

    Assist:  Great work down low on the boards, gets the puck to Thornton who scores.

    1 point vs. Washington

    Assist:  Wheeler takes the puck from McQuaid at the red line, feeds Bergeron who scores

    1 point vs. Pittsburgh

    Assist:  Honestly, it was a secondary assist and the video on NHL.com didn't go back far enough to see it.  Thornton carried the puck from the B's zone to the Pens zone and took a shot.

    ***

    What's my point?  McQuaid's offensive output isn't a talking point for anyone about anything.  He had a real nice play on the assist vs. Atlanta.  Nothing else was anything at all.  I'm not saying that Stuart is better in the offensive zone.  I'm simpy using game facts (instead of game logs) to show that McQuaid isn't.

    I like McQuaid.  I'm happy he's a Bruin.  I can't wait to see what he turns in to.  The level of gaga people are going for him is fueled by a few fights.

       When people start comparing the offensive prowess of Stuart and McQuaid, it would appear that the people posting here, are officially out of things to talk about.

    Third most minutes for defensemen, fourth on the team in +/-.  He blocks shots, he plays tough, he can play on any pairing.

    Yeah, that guy's a bum, but make that McQuaid, whoa Nelly.


    He's great.

    I reason I read this board, besides boredom, is to learn something about hockey. Some people who post here make good points.

    On the other hand, some people just stun me with their comments. I try to imagine that they're very young, or they've never played a sport, or whatever. But it's hard not to dismiss some people.

    And those of you who think Ference is the Bruins' worst defenseman simply show your ignorance. Please pay closer attention to what's going on in the games.
