#2514663 Bertuzzi in, Jurco out

Posted by Dabura on 24 April 2014 - 12:22 PM

I'm ok with this. Bert's a graybeard, he knows what's up, he's not going to be remotely intimidated, and hopefully that rubs off on others. Speed and skill is great, but we do need a heavy, someone who's not afraid to park his ass in front of Rask. And, credit where it's due, he's a goal scorer. Andersson is not a goal scorer.

 

There's also a funny bit of irony here: Bertuzzi in his prime basically paved the way for Lucic.

Boston traded Tyler Seguin (yes I know he is / was a bit of a problem) for Loui Erickson.......is Erickson that much better than Franzen? There are deals to be made if you try hard enough, I just feel like our guy ain't tryin' that hard....

 

Problem is, he doesn't actually want to make a deal. It's all about the country club atmosphere with him.

Because he's Abby?

Actually, I think what pisses me off the most about this is that it really is the Nashville series all over again. Perimeter, perimeter, perimeter. We're suppose to have grown since then. We're supposed to be tougher, harder, gutsier, heavier, younger, faster, way more aggressive. Instead, we look like a shell of a team.

 

Granted, it's impossible to overstate how much we miss Z and E right now.

I wish I could say it's Boston outplaying us but it's us being cute and just not playing properly. This team needs a power forward to trade for franzen. He's big and fkin useless

 

We need a Wayne Simmonds like no one's business. IMHO

I want Franzen gone this summer.

I would agree - but if howard doesn't deflate the building with that softie to start the game we might be playing much better. We were okay before that happened. 

 

We're on the same page, then. I think? I'm saying Howard has to save that. He has to be a wall for us, like he was in the first game. He can't be anything less than phenomenal.

But is Babcock really playing Kindl and Lashoff as much as I think? Or does it just seem like they're out there all the time because they're screwing things up really bad?

 

They're out there all. the. freaking. time. Been that way ever since E got hurt, I think.

At this point, I would put more blame on the lack of goal scoring.  Kinda hard to win games when you only score 1 goal per game.  Heck, today we have nothing and only 3 shots on goal.

 

Lets put it this way, if Howard was allowing 5 goals and losing 5-4, I would agree with you.  *cough cough* Lindback

 

Fair or not, Howard has to stand on his head just to give us a chance in this series. We knew that going in, and nothing's changed. He can't let in softies. Can't happen. That we're not generating offense just hammers the point home. Time for him to earn his big fat contract.

When Datsyuk won game 1 with a similar wrister, do you think Boston fans were calling for Rask? That was a great shot. Maybe not unstoppable, but hardly a gimme. Rewind and look at it again.

 

Rask was totally screened on Datsyuk's shot. He had no chance.

yup dabura is right I believe unless babs switches leggy and andy

 

I think he's hinted he might go that way if Andersson isn't really clicking right off the hop and/or he wants to get into the matchups chess game straightaway.


What? I'm confused. But that's normal

 

Alfie's out, back problems. Andy's taking his spot on the third line, but he'll probably get bumped down to the fourth, with Leggy moving up to the third.

What are the lines tonight?

 

No changes beyond Andersson taking Alfie's place on the third line. I think?
