    The last time Bergeron didn't do well in the playoffs we found out he had surgery after the season. As an aside I can't stand the way the linesmen are handling the faceoffs - but that's not a new thought.

    Do you think he is truly spent or is past the days of #1 minutes? I think he could play a while longer on #3/4 minutes - but the team needs to be built with that in mind. Hamilton was supposed to be chewing these minutes down. Perhaps next year Charlie will. But no team is built to lose 4 defensemen the week of playoffs starting.

    But if you think he is toast that's a different scenario.

    I think he's spent largely because of the added minutes he's had to burden over the last four games. Certainly not done but more of a 2/3 instead of our previous views on him.

    Charlie Bourque ended up with the most TOI for all players on the B's last night. Chara may not be "done" but he's certainly worn down, and is probably no longer the best defenseman on the Bruins.

    If C. Bourque and Zboril (and Lauzon?) end up being as good as we hope they are, Chara as a 3/4 type over the next 2-3 is palatable.

    Mostly agreed, but I think Chara's more than palatable as a 3/4 guy though. And if McAvoy can continue the way he's playing now and Carlo takes a couple steps forward, I feel really good about something like:

    Chara-McAvoy
    Krug-Carlo
    C.Miller and whoever is letfover from the expansion draft
    With the top 2 pairs being pretty equivalent. And Lauzon and Zboril waiting in the wings. That's one of the deepest group of 6 defenseman in the league, despite lacking a real #1

    I mean, this could/should have been their defense for this series. And as much as it's sucked, I'm really trying to not overreact to losing a playoff series with, JML, Joe Morrow and Tommy Cross getting significant minutes

    In two games, Krejci is 0-0-0 with 2 shots. He's obviously not even close to 100% and the Bruins really miss him in this series. Without Krejci, they only have one center who can score.

    He's also playing at about 50% speed. So damn slow out there.

    Second line: wounded Krejci, Schaller, and Pastrnak. Small wonder Boris is struggling.

    Agreed. He was pretty good all year and is now playing about 20%(?) more per game.
