[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Would you pick Seguin #2 again? : Really, you think they're messing with his shootout strategy? Why, exactly, would they do that when he's been golden in the SO? If they were using the first shooter to get a read for the next two, I doubt they'd waste Seguin's attempt for that purpose. Look, Seguin is playing a bit like Sequin - we can all see it, and we're all reacting to the fact that he didn't land and take the team on his shoulders. But Badhab? I find the conspiracy theories of how over-managed Seguin is sound more panicky about the situation than the OP's suggestion that the Bruins should have taken someone else. It's no big deal that he hasn't found his groove. He will.

Yes BB, I am really anti-conspiracy, there are no UFO's, ghosts, no man on the grassy knoll, no big foot and no loch ness monster and puck moving defenseman doesn't mean anything so I can't comment about that.
I really think something was strange about that SO. Seguin had a sour puss before the shot and wore that same expression after and on the bench. I read into that.
Plus fact - the only guy to be a healthy scratch other than Paille.
CJ strikes me so much like a coach with a hair out for the youngest guy on the team.
I can't substantiate any of it. It's gut feel and my read of body language.
Look at Marchand, in my book at least 2 offenses worth a healthy scratch - over handling the puck in the neutral zone, one led to a goal. And no scratch.
