    Fluto Nails It!

    "Seguin’s playoff growth confirms that the Bruins were correct in developing him slowly. Seguin was too skilled to return to juniors. But because of his age, he was not eligible to play in the AHL, which probably would have been his best training ground. Seguin needed to practice alongside and play against men.

    Tonight, he will continue to reap the rewards of his bosses’ patience, as he makes his third straight playoff appearance."

    exactly WHO do you send your checking line out to equalize? the LKH line, bergy's line, or the emerging stars' line? quite the cunnundrum, eh? this team will wear down the bolts, not to mention their goalie's confidence has to be shaken after giving up 6 in two periods of play, and getting yanked.

    If Bergy didn't go down, not too sure there would have been any "playoff growth" this time around. Glad to see he got his shot and made good on it. Hope it continues tonight.....and beyond.

    And ADK, I've said the same thing as well; one of the key factors for the Bruins success is to use their size to pummel the snot out of the Bolts (wisely of course).

    essentially saying, "Coach, we will continue to take out forwards until you play the kid...."

    I think this years injuries/adversity highlights what makes this such a special run for the B's, and shows just how deep they are as a hockey club. Another "ada boy" to Bruins mgt. for staying proactive (trades).

    I saw an out-of-state newspaper headline yesterday that read "Seguin's 2 goals, 2 assist lift Bruins. Boston wins high-scoring affair to even East finals."

    Imagine before the first game of the season you got a little glimpse into the future but only got to see that headline. Seriously how pumped would you be?

    I thought they handled it all wrong. I said if he isnt playing in the regular season then they should have sent him to juniors. Hard to argue that now, but I still stand by it, but instead of saying Claude looks foolish here, he should have played him all along, give the kid credit for stepping up.

    Comes down to two questions, neither of which can be answered factually:

    1) Would Seguin have accomplished what he did in games 1 and 2 if he wasn't handled the way he was?

    2) Would you trade the impact Seguin had in games 1 and 2 for a greater impact during the regular season? (To bias you, let me ask you to consider that the Bruins won their division and made the playoffs easily)

    I can almost guarantee you. Rollie's confidence is definitely intact! You do realize this guy has never lost an elimation game in his entire career; right?

    Re: Fluto Nails It!

    Fluto can be counted on to state the obvious. Tonight, if Claude wants to win, he could start Paille/Campbell/Peverly. Speed, smarts, and more speed to counter whoever Tampa starts. The D is now our major concern. Would love to see Kamfer join the speedy guys, and would have a hard choice on sitting either Boychuck who has some good skills, but some poor decisions; or Kaberle, who has looked good carrying the puck on the PP, but not so good when forced to play strong defense. Chara, Seids, Ference, and McQuaid are all more responsible. Therefore, let the existing D continue, unless we see some obvious faux pas.

    He also hasn't played many either aside from that impossible EDM cup run a few years back....

    So this means in his 14 year NHL career he must have 14 Stanley Cups and also be heading to Hall of Fame and retired jersey with the 6 teams he played for not including his often trips to the AHL. Dwayne is an average goalie who gets hot not a 1-Time soon to be 2-Time Vezina Winner like our goalie.

    To be fair to Nightmare he is correct. It is just that Roloson's teams rarely are in a position to be in an elimination game let alone a meaningful one. Whether that reflects on Dwayne or not is an entire other issue unto itself....

    Remember when Conklin had to play a few minutes? He very nearly scored on himself trying to clear a shoot in....my god was that a goalie gongshow. No wonder carolina won...

    The only way Julien found out that Seguin finally got it was an injury which forced Claude to play the kid otherwise Bruins fans wouldn't have found out that Tyler was ready to contribute.

    Just glad Claude couldn't let his stubbornness get in the way of this one. Julien's love affair with mucker grinders like Thornton and Whitfield has got to stop.

    I agree, to label it a stroke of genius in developing a rookie is laying it on a bit thick. CJ was forced to play Seguin as a result of injury and unexpectedly to him the kid rose to the occasion and has been carrying the B's offense ever since. I call it incidental.....

    confirms nothing maybe he would have had 5g and 5A.

    No way to refute it now.

    Segs keep that 3p per game average going.

    If anything I think Seguin just solidified a good roster spot for next year if he keeps up the work ethic. Love it....

    He wasn't exactly lighting the blue touchpaper towards the end of the regular season so maybe a rest is just what he needed. He watched a few from the stands and was probably itching to get his shot.

    It's unfortunate that Bergy went down but one player's misfortune is another's opportunity. Compare it to last year when DK went down and they had to go with Whitfield. Seguin really was a great kid to have in reserve.

    I really got the feeling in the last game he had arrived big time. A lot of that is on the kid himself but you've got to give credit to the way he's been handled. He could have been playing all tired and beat up from the long slog of the 90+ games to get to this point.

    Re: Fluto Nails It!

    Here's an exercise for all the Claude-bashing Seguinistas :

    Imagine the Bruins are precisely where they are right now - heading into Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals with 9 wins and only 4 losses (a .692 winning percentage).

    But instead of getting the second pick in the draft lottery they got the fourth pick.  Seguin is on the Islanders.  The only difference in the line-up is instead of Tyler Seguin on the third line, it's Miroslav Satan.

    Is Claude Julien still a terrible coach?

    If your answer is still yes, then you either have an unwarranted personal vendetta against Julien - or an unhealthy attraction to a 19 year old hockey player.

    You may not like the defensive style he employs.  You may not agree with line combinations, time out calls (or lack thereof), or how he splits his goalie starts... but there is no basis whatsoever to say he is a terrible coach.  There just isn't.

    The Bruins are THREE wins away from the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time in 19 YEARS!!  You can disagree with his decisions but it does not make him a bad coach.

    I agree... but our defense has not been as strong and the Bruins need to worry about the counterattack from a very deep Lightning squad. These teams are very even in my book and will come down to who makes the mistakes and who can take advantage.
