Down on Krejci

    Down on Krejci

    Yeah, I know.  They won the Cup with him as the center of the top line.  I know.

    Now that we've established that:

    I'm really down on Krejci lately.  As I was watching the game yesterday, I was trying to remember the last time he did something impressive.  I couldn't.  With Horton and Lucic always primed to shoot and score, an upgrade at center would put this team into a different category all together.  I believe he is the main culprit behind the miserable powerplay.  Or, maybe he's not the reason it stinks, but he sure isn't helping the powerplay succeed.

    It's almost December.  He as three goals and seven assists.  That's two more goals and five more assists than SHAWN THORNTON.

    Maybe he's hurt.  Maybe he's done.  Maybe he'll snap out of it.  Maybe he needs to play on a different line or a different team.

    I'd love to see what the stats of Lucic and Horton would look like if Seguin were to play between them for a month.

    Re: Down on Krejci

    I can't argue with this post, he has been less than impressive this year.

    I am not opposed to moving him for a wing or d-man, with Seguin moving to the top center spot.  If not now, when?  With DK being a pending RFA, seems like it could happen.

    if i was PC i'd be more in a hurry to get pending ufa Kelly signed and take my chances with Krejci after the season....

    i also think Seguin's future's as a center....

    And with Kelly certainly looking to lock an extension up as the 3rd line center and centers a plentiful in the OHL coming in next year. You have to think why wouldn't Chiarelli put feelers out for an expiring contract winger and a prospect or some pics ?

    We have seen that PC is very patient (last couple of years anyways) he could decide to let Krejci do his usual spring madness then look to deal him at the draft to someone. If the deal is right do it but PC may have already decided he's keeping #46. I'm babbling I can't guess anymore...

    Meh.  He hasn't been good.  And yeah, it sure looks like Kelly is a more important conversation - how much?! how long!?  Golly!  But I'm not overly concerned about Krejci.

    Re: Down on Krejci

    This thread is about his play, not so much about what he will sign for or what he could fetch in a trade. His numbers are bad but I don't really have a big problem with his play. He could be better, but I think that's partly because of his early season injury and partly because the passion isn't there. He's a classic playoff type guy, and like Ryder those guys can look a bit lethargic during season play at times. I'm a fan of DK, I hope they keep him around if he can be extended at a reasonable price. I actually kind of like his poor play because I hope it brings his price down. We know what he can do when he's engaged, so if a slump makes him cheaper I say great.

    Not exactly the same but similar.  You could have commented on those.

    Re: Down on Krejci

    No doubt he's been sub-par. I wonder why?
    He seems to be skating OK. He seems real weak on the puck though, losing more battles than he should. Not that he is a great possession guy, but something is certainly amiss with his decision making. He can't seem to get a pass through. Is it laziness? Has he become Michael Glyder-esque? I think a healthy scratch might light a fire under him, unfortunately that means rotating out 3 new lines, so it won't happen.

    Re: Down on Krejci

    Alright , I'll input here.
    If the team was losing I'de be worried , right now they've won 11 out of 12 and got points in these last 12 games.
    The focus from other teams is starting to go to Bergeron's line. We might start seeing Krejci get it going. Horton also on that line looks like he 'll start scoring again and his bad stint has nothing to do with Krejci, he's gotten him the puck for some good scoring chances. Just hasn't buried them.
    I'm not worried at the moment.

    There is huge value in Krejci, the key to being a succesful NHLer
    is what you do in the playoffs, he is proven, if he doesn't get hurt
    thanks to that swine richards they may have consecutive cups!

    resigning for a good price is a must based on the talent that will
    need to get paid soon!

    If DK got hurt before Sturm would we all be claiming Sturm was the reason we didn't win. How about the fact we'd lost Seidenberg to injury too. I really think the DK injury was just the straw that broke the camel's back. No more, no less.

    Re: Down on Krejci

    I also wonder about his longterm health but I guess any player is one shot from being down the road savy is. Its frustrating because I am not sure if any of you watched him in the last olympics be he looked awsome and then you wonder why don't we see that much with the bruins. Sometimes I wonder if Krejci would be better off if he got more selfish and shot more pucks instead of always looking to pass. I wouldn't lose sleep if he was traded but I just don't know if the returnn would be worth it since Krejci is having a bad season.

    I think it was just a combo of way to many injuries and I think they missed seidenberg the most in those playoffs. Tuukka also I think was tired and running on fumes by the end of the series.

    That's the player I thought was the key.

    I, personally, am not worried about Krejci. He always comes around - usually by mid February.

    He will also re-sign with Boston because he doesn't want to go anywhere else, unless he is forced to.

    If Horton and Lucic could put a brick in the ocean then Krejci's numbers would increase.

    The line had spells last year just like this one.  They'll work it out. 

    If I'm PC no way do I trade Krecji this year.  Wait for the season to end and then evaluate needs.

    I don't keep up with all of the threads.  I rarely even open a thread when I don't recognize the OP.  If you're referring to the "What to offer Krejci" thread, well, I didn't open it and I didn't read it.  I would guess, considering the headline, it's about contract talks with Krejci.  I've never heard of the OP, so I don't care what that OP thinks.

    This thread isn't about contract talks.  It's about the incredibly poor production from the center of the top line.  I don't see that as redundant, do you?

    I would be more worried if he was the only go to guy we have but hes not.  Best think for the B's is for him to have an average year so he doesnt price himself out fo Boston.  He comes through when it counts.

    I'm not worried about Krejci at all. The talent is definately there. He's going against the other team's best D. Playing through an injury maybe? Other guys have had slumps and we don't bail on them.
