    How Did Krug Look

    I did not get to see the game last night.

    What were some impressions of him?

    Krug looks fast, good passer, good break-out, plus he had a couple of assists.

    He also looked like a player thrown in at the last minute and you can count 2 habs goals directly attributable to him.  I honestly don't think Bartkowski would have made those mistakes.

    Overlooked today - Iginla help cost the Bruins the game last night.

    Chara is the only decent defender on this team. Most of the others are mediocre or worse. Either they can't skate or can't pass, but almost all of wind up routinely turning over the puck leading to goals. I know we need a sniper but another decent defenseman wouldn't hurt either.

    Yep, not to mention Koko sitting last night as well for Providence. Also, perhaps the one-way contract given to Bart in anticipation of  this trade....

    I consider Hamilton a better than decent defender.

    I consider McQuaid and Boychuk to be decent defenders

    Re: How Did Krug Look

    Like all AHL defenseman on there first two or three shifts he looked shaky no doubt. You know forecheckers are going to go in and try n shake any kid up. On the powerplay goal by Bergeron, Krug was hesitant to shoot a onetimer and looked nervous. Chara and Peverley were like "no kid we are going to keep passing to you cause that is what you did in the past, catch n shoot a onetimer". Krug to a second ripped a decent wrister that Price couldn't handle Bergeron popped in the rebound.

    Bs fans were screaming that Krug should have stayed with his man out of the corner, on the 1st goal, up to the blueline but Torey dropped him for Lucic to cover back down low. Fat A** lumbered defensively (stayed true to this season) and the puck carrier found uncovered Ryder off to the side of the net for a goal. Some will still say that Krug should have stayed with the puck carrier up high but he did the right thing dropping back down low.

    I din't really see Torey get hammered off the puck during one on one battles in the Dzone or below the goal line. That is what I concentrate on the most on, especially with young midget defenseman. He did ok and that is good for me...for now.

    He looked great on the power play ...had an assist ...he is a fast skater , makes some nice passes ...and with a few practices with the team he wouldnt have any problemm to become a top 6 <s on this team within a few months ...not true what badhab said ...yes he was on the ice for the 2 first goals but o Subban<s shot he couldnt do nothing same as Ryder<s goal ..

    I really like him ...great skills great talent

    Seidenberg is the slowest player on the team. Opponents routinely blow by him and often he'll pick up a penalty for hooking or slashing, trying to stop them from breaking in all alone. Behind the net, he'll play the body but rarely gets his stick on the puck so the next guy in steals the puck and tries to set up an open man. I grant you that he was decent last year but this season he has been medocre.

    Hamilton shows terrific promise because he can skate decently and has some offensive skills to contribute as well. But he is still a rookie and has made more than a few glaring, defensive mistakes during the course of the season.


    Boychuk and McQuaid aren't very good skaters, especially backwards, and they have great trouble turning and staying with their men as they back into the defensive zone. Boychuk almost invariably slaps the puck around the boards either to a teammate who is already covered or to an opposition player at the point. When there is noone on the boards it usally just winds up as a needless icing call. They both have no stick handling skills and are poor passers, so they are like turnover-machines back in the defensive zone. I would concede that they are good with their fists, but that talent isn't enough to keep them in the NHL. They are like Dennis Wideman without the offensive skills.

    Yet they won a stanley cup.  I guess Thomas was just that good.

    You are mostly right because Thomas was terrific, as was Chara. In addition, we also had a better offense, which takes a lot of pressure off of the backline. Add to that, the Canucks were incredible chokers.

    Stanley, on Subban's goal the Montreal forward pushed him into the slot screening Rask, Rask even looked at him asking 'wtf'?  The play by play people noticed and commented, on the other goal he totally missed his assignment.

    Krug has skills and speed, but he is too small.  A PP specialist is about all he can be.

    You don't know that Krug is just a one dimensional player after one game. GMs, scouts and coaches don't base an evaluation around one play in front of the net, it's based over a whole game.

    Boychuk and MacQuaid were given time but were brutal at times when they first came up.

    I've seen him play several times. 

    He will have to overcome his size by getting much stronger, but that might make him slower a la Brandon Bochenski.

    Maybe we can recapture some history and trade him for another Ruzicka-type to kickstart the offense?

    I agree with you guys. Hawgood was a decent player for Boston. I'd be happy enough if Krug could even just be the next Don Sweeney.

    Re: How Did Krug Look

    Krug does look like another hawgood which might be the problem in the Bruins scouting dept. How many similiar players have passed thru the Bruins, and are playing elsewhere. Bartkowski was supposed to be the first "BIG " d-man for the Bruins, and it has taken him 3 years to get here, and he's not that big or fast. He looked OK in his second game, but not in his first. Krug's speed looks very good against the current experienced guys who are fading due to prior injuries and years of service. I just re-read the THN's issue on depth, and there are a number of teams like Nashville etc. with more than a few 6'3 plus 20/21 year old D-men. Where are the Bruins scouts ? or, are they mesmerized by memories of Don Sweeney ??
