Rask needs to go...terrible and an embarrassment in big games...
Marchand playing like he’s been on a bender with RB for the last week....
Good call buddy! Stick to the 10 year old hockey injections ...the NHL is above your pay grade
Marchand off last few nights....Tuuka needs to go
how many kids from fed elite could play for Bruins right now? what a feeder league the fed is
From what I've witnessed thus far in the playoffs if the kid is a left shot defensemen and about 5'7" or better I'd say there might be 15-20 who could make the team and play without any problem. Of course you would have to take Torey Krug's spot which shouldn't be that hard. -4 in a series your team wins and a +/- of 0 for the season on a team that was 50-20-12 with a +56. Most marginal high school players could put up those numbers.
Torey Krug is terrible I'm still scratching my head about that guy having such a long run in the NHL.
How about Krejci? Aweful....look for Marchand to rebound. Rask as good as a u18 goalie.
Hey Rask supporters, how about that goal????
all goalies have their 'moments'. its easy to say a goalie must go, but replaced with??? excluding the other 7 goalies currently playing and i'll even give you a straight up trade --- who? Lundqvist, Quick (lost 4 straight). that means you have to admit he is a top 10 goalie. so we are going to toss a top 10 goalie? i don't disagree he might not be it, but give solutions.
The bigger issue is the refereeing. Doesn't matter that they were outplayed, they only record how many go in the net.
It was bad in Game 1, too - bad enough that it could have decided that game, too. Remember the ticky-tack cross-check by Pastrnak that negated a Bruins goal when it was still close? The DeBrusk "interference" call for a stick tap that resulted in the PP when the Lightning scored their second goal? And play should have been stopped when Rask lost his skate blade. It's different when a player loses one, they are down a man temporarily, no different than a broken stick. When your goalie can't push he can't defend the goal, and no one can take his place while he goes to the bench.
Getting to be like the NBA where the league is directing the officials on who to give the edge to. Which would be a shame.
I’m not sure if it’s comforting or not that the quality of refereeing is the same at the youth and pro level? They all seem to stink.
The Little Bantam Tory is flatout getting ragdolled. Bench him and give 'No Pass Donato" a shot.
48 is worse and more like a pee wee.
40, 46, 47, 48 all gotta go. 46 is an ambarrasment to any hard working hockey player. Wasted talent.
Something tells me the B's are going to have to take a serious look at all of those you mentioned to sign some of the good young players' next contracts.
At least Grzelcyk plays a little defense (his numbers are far better than Krug's - for the season Grzelcyk +22, Krug -0-), he can also man the power play and he can also make the 5-6 good passes a night Krug makes. Krug at $5.5 million or Grzelcyk at $850K? Just give Krug's money to McAvoy now.
46 Krejci is just plays too slow for today's game. All hands and you can hardly make room to get a shot off. DeBrusk will need some of that $.
Tuukka is playing at about half of his contract
I'm afraid if they can't replace or dramatically reduce Krug's minutes this series is OVER.
All will test Sweeney’s commitment to winning. 48 a tough cut but has to go, like ALL other numbers mentioned.
