Updates from Monday

Peter Chiarelli has stated that Krejci’s concussion is considered “moderate”. That may be an indication that his concussion will keep him out longer than just one week.

Brian McGratton has been placed on waivers for the purposes of sending him to Providence. This move is clearly for cap purposes and roster limitations, so expect to see either Joe Colborne or Zach Hamill get called up. However, at the same time, knowing how Claude Julien likes to coach, seeing Jeremy Reich with the club would not be a surprise either.

With Krejci out, Blake Wheeler has moved to center. Wheeler has the size an speed to play center, but his smarts and awareness may make this a difficult transition. With Wheeler now at center, Daniel Paille is now forced back into the lineup. Here is the rest of the lineup:

Lucic-Bergeron-Horton
Caron-Wheeler-Recchi
Paille-Seguin-Ryder
Marchand-Campbell-Thornton

    I HATE Wheeler at center. Good game to start him off there too against one of Crosby or Malkin (unless they use the 4th line to match-up against one of them).

    Can’t say I’d mind seeing Colborne up for a little bit. If this was a lengthy injury to Krech I’d say go with someone else, but as it’s probably not, why not give him a cup of tea with the big club? Jamie Arniel aslo might be an option. However, I think we all know that we’ll see some plug like Wyatt Smith get the call…

  2. Bruins says:

    With Marchand being able to play center what about something like this:

    Lucic-Bergeron-Horton
    Wheeler-Seguin-Ryder
    Caron-Marchand-Recchi
    Paille-Campbell-Thornton

    Marchand has shown some offensive flair so why not put him on a “scoring line” for the time being?

    Either that or Colborne between Caron and Rex, Marchand back on the 4th line and Paille in the press box.

  3. dookie says:

    what are the cap rules re itir? my understanding is the lesser of 10 games or 24 days. why can’t pc place boychuk on ltir, or krecji if he will be gone the minimum anyway. makes sense to me – save additional cap room which is desparately needed. i must be missing something, but what?

  4. jmed says:

    not that anyone payed much attention in pre-season but lucic bergeron horton looked awesome as a line. this could be interesting

  5. Elwoppo says:

    update on sturm:

    Just read that Chiarelli expects Sturm to return in late November or 1st week in Dec latest!!

    No time table on Savard yet, Maybe late December or early Jan???

  6. Elwoppo says:

    Also i see that Malkin is listed as day to day with a leg injury, Anybody know if this cock sucker is playing tomorrow! Also this is the first meeting in thier building since the Cook/Savard incident!!! Interesting………………………………………………………………………………………………..??

  7. mook says:

    i love how everyone turns on coaching/players after a bruin loss.

    just take it easy. you all know we’re gonna make the playoffs, and that we’re going to get a top-5 pick in next year’s draft.

    • #4 says:

      Thats good. But I want them to win in the playoffs. That was a playoff style game and no1 answered. Oshie took krejci’s head off(wasnt cheap but still) and no1 even gave him a shove.

      Yet Mark Stuart throws a hit and of course someone comes looking for him. IDK if its Claude telling them not to do stuff like that, he wasnt happy with Ferrence standing up for Rex. It pisses me off that they cant seem to be big and tough and it encourages other teams to take runs at our skill guys.

      • moast says:

        What you said!!

      • Richardo says:

        I have to agree #4… Especially being at home on Saturday… They need to be tougher at home!!!

      • Bruins says:

        Did you not see what Ference did after the clean hit on Recchi?

        Why the hell would you want to get the instigator for fighting a guy after a clean hit in OT? 4 on 3 is almost a guarunteed goal.

      • #4 says:

        Did you not see me mention that?

        I agree in OT I guess you cant take an instigator. But you can do something to show dissaproval. IDK its not just a single event that has me griping about this its been going on for the last 2 years.

      • Bruins says:

        I actually missed that. But it is the definition of what you’re complaining about. Like I said OT is a whole different ball game than if you’re down by a goal in the second.

  8. Gcole says:

    am i just more barbaric, or does anyone else seem to want justice against matt cooke, and other assholes like him? i mean that rematch after the hit, PC pulls his usual shit and says the two points are more important than kicking his ass, and its clear they made the players not go after him (minus the fight to start off and get it ‘over with’) but what a bunch of bullshit!! i thought this was the BIG BAD BRUINS who dont take anyones shit and is tough to play against? apparently not, theyre really the big pussy bruins who wont punch you back because our coach is a fucking pussy and wont let them. and what proves this even more is that game the bruins didnt want to get distracted by cooke in, and wanted the two pionts more. THEY LOST 3-0!!! i would rather see the goon mcgratton we signed go out there and knock him the fuck out and get suspended, it would be more of an honor because he knew he did his job, and the team doesnt have to deal with his bullshit

    • #4 says:

      Look at Ruffs reaction to this hit in a buffalo game.

      Thats what you should DO! Not stage a fight 3 weeks later and send out Mr. Thornton (Reminds me of that friendly Middle School Principle, You dont want to deal with him but he’s not that bad).

      • moast says:

        So fucking true!! I watched this clip and loved it. I agree that this team is held back by the coach, in the sence of being “Big & Bad”. Waiving McGratton was pointless. Leaving the fighting to Thornton (Boring), Lucic and Chara is pointless. Lucic and Chara need to play hockey, not fight. Im really concerned about the game versus Pittsburgh. What, another fight from Thornton and thats it…..please. I hat Lindy Ruff with a fucking passion but I do have to respect him for taking care of business.
        The Big Bad Bruins are back and are tough to play against…..please are you fucking kidding me……they have the size, so i guess they are Big but Bad, fuck no…..they will get in shit from coach and management….brutal.

        I will always love the B’s but until I see a glimpse of Jonathan, Wensink, O’Reilly type players, I will never be fully happy with this team.

      • Gcole says:

        Yea and they waived mcgratton to free up cap space… What you wanna bet absolutely nothing will happen that needed the extra cap space, bet they’ll bring up some nobody r failure like hamill or Reich who won’t do jack shot for the team. I love how nesn keeps talking about possibly calling up zach hamill and it never happens. I think it goes without saying that kids a bust

  9. G-Rant says:

    Arneil recalled, may play with seguin tomorrow.

    Boston.com

  10. ELWOPPO says:

    Ryder hurt! Left practice early! Arniel recalled on emergency basis! This is creepy now. What in the hell is going on?

  11. ELWOPPO says:

    Were cursed! Last year all over again!

  12. Richardo says:

    Does anyone think or know if there could be a deal in place for Ryder??

  13. moast says:

    How about the B’s trade Hunwick, Ference, Paille, Wheeler, for a Pair of Balls!!
    Thornton (Boring!!) Campbell (Never Wins)
    Where the fuck is McGratton…..Fucking Brutal!

  14. Gcole says:

    What a wacky start Jesus Christ

  15. moast says:

    Ference is a fucking Pylon!!
    Cant say much for Chara either!

  16. Gcole says:

    Fights look pretty dramatic with hair flying all over lol

  17. Manitoba Fan says:

    I know the last two goals were lucky but we look fuckin brutal.

  18. Manitoba Fan says:

    wish bergeron would stop hitting posts and start hitting mesh

  19. Bear Facts says:

    Our team is fucking slow. We need guys like Seguin and Ryan Spooner playing. The D is exactly playing well with Mcqaids back to the play and Stuart halping out Sid the Kid.

  20. Birdman2403 says:

    I hate Wheeler ! How long are the Bruins going to wait for this guy to do something ?? All he does well is take icetime from other guys that would actually try ! Get him off the fucking P.P. and put Seguin out there !!

  21. Bruins says:

    This team is the real deal. Play like crap for 40 minutes and still come out on top by 3 goals.

  22. Gcole says:

    Did that really just happen or am I going to wake up soon?

  23. backbruin says:

    You morons that post every time we get scored on this year, and have some idiotic bad comment on a suspect play need to realize that these guys are human and are trying their guts out to win…I like many of you got down in past years when the going got tough but i swear to you after the second period went for a beer and talked to the wife as she got home….her being a fan as well came back to the big screen with “again: a positive attitude and viewed a two two tie….my neighbour being of course a bruins fan yelled out as i was entering the garage that we have tied it!!!

    you fake fans need to realize that this team minus all the scoring we have lost, are deadly!! confident and focused

    f-off all you pretenders!!!

  24. backbruin says:

    team is sick and i smell a cup!!!sniffffffffffffffff ya cut and paste this shit!!! CUP!!!

    BRING IT

    • ELWOPPO says:

      Like u new that was gonna happen!!!!!!!!! U were ready to throw the towel in just like the rest of us! Stop taking shit!!!!!!!!!

      • backbruin says:

        stfu up eldummo, you want to go through the shit kicking i gave you last year…Where all your posts are full of NOTHING BUT FK THIS COCKSUCKER BITCH ASSHOLE AND FKHEAD!!!

        Ya exactly, stick to reading and not touching your keyboard before you hurt yourself!

        I with obvious bias think this team has something different this year!! It’s called killer instinct and something to prove…so yes i did believe and no i didn’t get down!!!

        do me a favour wash your keyboard out with soap before you post again retard!

      • backbruin says:

        And i never stated i “knew” anything, what i said was i didn’t give up you monkey!! maybe you should cheer for the leafs so you can throw towels 82 times a year!

  25. Manitoba Fan says:

    That was an awesome battle back in the third. Second one this year, first one never had the same outcome but at least we know the boys are willing to battle for all 60 mins. The second period i still think was terrible but they never quite so thats all that matters! Bergeron looks deadly on the first line also. Gotta love our depth down the middle. Go bruins Go!!!!

  26. Haus says:

    There are alot of drama queens on this site. Im with you BackBruin. People gotta relax. And to whoever said he lost, Campbell won that fight, landed some good shots and Talbot only landed on top of him after he missed the big haymaker. I also thought the Wheeler line played well tonight. People gotta relax.

  27. Haus says:

    New Bruins rule: “Never post doom and gloom on ‘Bruins Rumors and News’ when the game is still on”. Then the bear comes and smashes the monitor over a guys head.

  28. Edski says:

    CHRISTMAS COMES EARLY FELLAS BRUINS HABS LETS GOOOOOOOOOOO IMMA BE LEAVING WORK IN VEGAS EARLY TO DRINK

  29. mook says:

    i thought ference and wheeler had a great game…what are you guys talking about? hunwick looked pretty good too.

    they won’t win every game 5-0.

    fucken recchi strong on the puck for the 6th goal! reminded me of when he swatted that barfalo player in last year’s playoffs.

  30. BosBrn77 says:

    Globe is reporting that Savard could be practicing with the team in 2-3 DAYS!!

  31. willisss says:

    Haha oh mannnn, now I remember why I don’t read thiis during games. Bunch of clowns…well except for a select few

  32. Richardo says:

    The Bruins just started a meltdown in Pittsburgh… The media is going nuts down there…

  33. Studlycodfish says:

    Bruins Habs tonite!!! Looking for a beat down by the Bruins !!! Have to agree with Back Bruin to many drama queens posting negative $@&; every time the Bruins get down or lose. We got a really good team here guys but were not going to win evey game but if we can win even half the bad games we play like last night aside from the 3rd they will finish top three easy!!! Hate the Habs go Bruins

  34. #4 says:

    I said the Bruins needed to come out tough and they did and it Worked!!! 3fights Love it, Malkin and Crosby with owies and taken off their games (even though sid still had 3 assists lol).

    How bout Sean Thornton 300% More production than last year allready Wooh!

    Even bigger game against the scabs tonight though I expect the same type of effort!

  35. mook says:

    how about malkin diving all over the ice?!?!

    i can’t believe the refs blew-dead the play where malkin got hit (clean) by thornton and campbell swung-around the net for a great chance. fuck was that?

    problem in pittsburgh: they’re pussies.

    • Bruins says:

      Lollllll yeah not like Marchand had a decent scoring opportunity or anything… I’m actually surprised Thornton didn’t get suspended for life.

  36. mook says:

    AAAAAAANNNNNDDDDD…

    Oshie had a taste of karma last night. Fuck you, dirty cocksucker. Enjoy 3 months on the IR.

  37. Bruins says:

    I’ve been so impressed with the play of Marchand and Thornton, even aside from their goals.

    • CCMGoalie says:

      I’m thinking that we have the most consistent and powerful 4th line in the league. I know we can’t build our team around a 4th line, but look at the stats, the 4th line starts MOST periods because they come out with fire under their ass and tear everything and anyone in their way down. THey are the definitive “Grinder” line in this sense.

  38. Haus says:

    The 4th line has been awesome, but they did get beat for 2 goals last night. Considering who they lined up against +/- 0 isnt too bad. Im glad there is major chemistry on 2 of the lines so early, just curious about how it all shakes out once Savvy and Sturm are back. No way Krejci should be bumped from Horton/Looch. Im sure Rex will be with Bergy. It will be interesting to see who remains.

  39. willisss says:

    wheres are old friend et le but?

  40. pearson says:

    so i guess thorton worked on his shot this offseason… best 4th line in hockey?

    • UEDkop says:

      Thornton had an interview last year where Naoko (I believe) joked about his goal being a highlight reel goal. He joked back saying every one of his goals is a highlight reel goal. I believe it.

      Pretty sure it was a game against the Thrashers, took a wrist shot from inside the blueline and beat the goalie up top.

  41. willisss says:

    oh that brad marchand…..i think he heard all the shit i said about him last year. he has been redic this year…whatever, he still likes nickelback, and thats wicked gay

  42. Bruins says:

    We need to pick up that Wahlstrom kid. He’s automatic in the shootout lol

  43. Gcole says:

    That’s the 500th dive I’ve seen from Montreal and the first one ACTUALLY CALLED A PENALTY! lol

  44. Bruins says:

    Canadiens apparently paid off the refs before this one.

  45. Bruins says:

    What the hell’s up with the team not coming to play in front of Tuukka this season?

  46. Birdman2403 says:

    I said it last night and I’ll say it again….WHEELER blows ! He brought down Caron and Recchi with his lazy – soft play. In my opinion WHEELER and FERENCE top the trading block. At least Ryder competes and tries….Wheeler…NOTHING !

  47. Manitoba Fan says:

    Ya Tuukka has had some shitty luck this season.Ohter than the first game thought he has played well in all his other starts. Surprised he did not suffer a concussion from all those shots to the head. The team definetly looked tired in the third, a lot of sloppy plays. Thought they played well in the first two. Hopefully they can get a lead in a game going into the third soon, would be nice. All in all thought everything was good today minus the third period. Ah well. GO BRUINS GO!!!!

  48. Et Le but says:

    Yep I’m back!!! Not to gloat – but to give you guys credit. You did look tired tonight. I’ll accept that excuse. Bottom line is we beat you in your barn for the 3rd of 4th straight time. Tuukka is trash, i know – sure he came from the Leafs – you guys will never learn. If not for Thomas you guys would be just like NJ. Carey will lead us to the CUP.

  49. mook says:

    what was with montreal wasting shots at tuukka’s head? fucken dirty.

  50. Et Le but says:

    That’s not dirty – it’s strategy. Tuukka is absolutely great on low shots and is positionaly sound. As the Habs exposed last night – he has great difficulty on high shots , so much so that it takes him off his game.

  51. Bruins says:

    The Bruins are averaging 1.5 goals for when Rask plays a full game, and 4.57 goals for when Thomas plays a full game. The only game when the Bruins gave Rask more than 2 goals for (which coincidently is the least amount of goals they’ve provided for Thomas) was against the Capitals, which only took the loss away from Thomas and gave it to Rask instead.

    Holy hell, can Rask catch a break this year? Is the sophmore slump mandatory even when you’re playing well?

  52. Haus says:

    Thats all well and good, Le But, but Rask didnt give up any goals on high shots last night. And lets be real, everyone knows Carey folds like origami when the pressure is on. You guys gave up the wrong goalie.

  53. willisss says:

    “Rask is trash”…haha what a dumb bastard. French canadians are the worst

  54. Manitoba Fan says:

    all you hab fans talking shit about rask will eat your words one day, hopefully in the playoffs. Price was deadly last night and thats why you won.

  55. Manitoba Fan says:

    Does anybody know when boychuk is coming back?

  56. Manitoba Fan says:

    Thanks

  57. ELWOPPO says:

    Did you guys see this? Silly girl!!!! This is what happens when you give alcohal to minors!!!

  58. Haus says:

    The sad thing El Woppo, is shes not a minor, shes in her 20s and works in my hometown. What a disrespectful idiot.
