Anyone know if any other teams do the 3F1D OT setup as much as Boston does? The NBC folks were talking about it as if it were really strange, and only being done because it was an out-of-conference g more »

I'm surprised no one has commented about the picture of Rask with Fletcher during the first intermission.

The argument for Krejci's importance is simple. His return makes the lines: Lucic-Krejci-X Marchand-Bergeron-Smith Kelly-Soderberg-Eriksson Comparatively unimportant 4th line. When X was Iginla, it wa more »
Forum Post: Waaaaay too much Campbell!

There was lots of Campbell towards the end of that game because Fraser had his butt stapled to the bench. Whether there was a specific event to trigger that, or simply that he wasn't doing anything us more »

In response to dannycater's comment: No offense, Dr, but aren't predictions supposed to be based on what is going on during the season to date? Isn't that the reality? No? Or is it based on hope. Yes, more »

Actually, that site makes its predictions based on the season so far. Krejci being ruled out would mean no real change in roster, leaving that 25% intact. Him being added should bump that up. -- Pro more »

Yikes, talk about surviving the final two minutes. One point in the bank, time to grab the other!

How to make Julien want to rip off your hair and use it as a wig: do what Krug just did.

I know he's young, but Cunningham needs to learn that passing to Kelly on a breakaway is never the best option.

Posted 12/15/2014 12:08:48 EST
Based on what's on capgeek, it looks like they've dipped into Savard's money twice: the Cup year and last year. Each time about 60% was used ($2.5m and $2.7m, respectively), and I believe that's pure more »

The only other factor I can think of is that referees have a tendency to wan to "even up" calls during a game. Since they don't take a lot of penalties themselves, it will tend to depress their chanc more »

Well, they made a game of it. They just have to start sometime in the first half of the game.

Sometimes I really wonder if the Bruins have a lot of trouble seeing opposing players wearing white.

Corsi is shot attempts for versus against. Team 5v5 Corsi was 55.1% while he was in the lineup, and dropped to 51.2% while he was out. While he was on the ice the Bruins took 57.31% of shot attempts more »

What's the premium on getting Buffalo to eat some of the contract? If Boston picks up the full value, it likely means no other acquisitions without equal salary going out. There's an opportunity cos more »
