    He wishes he had half the talent of Marchand.

    Oh for sure Marchand is more talented. I just meant it more along the lines of the dirty/pest type.

    Except he sucks. Marchand is 3rd in the NHL in scoring.

    Yea, sorry I clarified earlier. Don't mean talent wise, but more of the dirty/pest type guy

    I'm OK with the bye now. Gives them a chance to catch their breath after a whirlwind week and get ready for the west swing and stretch run.

    They are 3 up on Toronto. Toronto will play 3 times before the Bruins play again.

    Crazy, but that was Rask's first regular season win against the Habs in Boston.

    It's going to be interesting to see what happens on the road. I worry that the Krejci and Spooner lines (as currently constructed) will have matchup issues against quality opposing lines. Claude always made sure someone on each line was defensively responsible, to the point of playing guys like Schaller way above where they should be. But it definitely worked on the road.

    Great start by Cassidy, but I think we need to be cautious. I was saying this to TFP, but teams (and especially Montreal) had the book on Claude. This is similar to how a team calls up a rookie pitcher and has immediate success until the league starts to figure him out.

    Great great start, but I'll reserve judgement for a few weeks.

    Not that your point isn't valid, but did Vancouver or San Jose have his system figured out too?

    He's been with the team for 10 years with mostly the same core. Other teams know what the Bruins were trying to do, so yes, I'd say so.

    There were basic tenets of his system that were not a secret and he may not have had the horses to run his system this year. The league hasn't seen Cassidy for 12-13 years, so it's not far fetched to think they're not as prepared to counter what Cassidy is trying to do than what Claude was trying to do.

    This makes sense. And since they were giving up chances anyway in the last 8 weeks or so, might as well crank up the offense to see if it ends up taking pressure off the D.

    Great 3 games after the Julien move. I think it is to be expected that there will be an initial fire under a team after a head coach gets let go so I'm hoping they don't slide back into mediocrity.

    The aggressive style has made up for some shortcomings in the defensive zone. You can see some odd man rushes broken up by guys getting their sticks in there. I think the classic Julien-training defensive style works to their advantage - guys know how to positionally be in the best spots, how to make judgment calls on when to play aggressively, but now don't need to worry about losing minutes for trying to make a play. That could work to their advantage the rest of the year.

    At the very least this has been a refreshing style of hockey to watch. I was not a fan of the firing of Julien, specifically the timing, but I'm coming around to the idea that the move needed to be made.

    Maybe complacency had set in and this move was necessary to wake the team up. Let's see if they can keep it up.

    I think the bolded is optimistic, but probably the best case scenario. I don't think Cassidy is some kind of wizard, but his system is obviously less rigid than Clod's. Hopefully, Clod's training along with a looser system will make for an effective mashup.

    I know they are going to the West coast, but a full week off on the schedule?

    edit: I remember hearing about the NHL bye week, but totally forgot.

    This place is quiet. Is everyone watching walking dead? Missed a good first.

    This team is playing fast, and I like it.

    I yelled at the TV.

    That may be due to the lack of a call or due to the drinking I've done all day. Either or.

    Agreed, is it the angle or the light? It doesn't look right.

    Krejci either took an extra inch off his stick so he can't properly handle the puck or he's on 'Ludes tonight.

    Agreed. To the point where I'd rather have Spooner getting 20 min / night.

    What am I saying

    Don't tell Stripes because he'll pop in 3 weeks from now when Krejci had a good game and blame his linemates.
