    A better question could be; "where does Eriksson fit in on this Bruins team ?" Kreji/Lucic/Iginla [ no change needed; Bergeron/Smith/Marchand[ solid second line, just jelling. What advantage to any change if Marchand and Bergie regain their chemistry ?]; Kelly/Soderberg/Caron[ all playing hard and all bigger bodies. Eriksson may have more speed and defensive experience]; Campbell/Paille/Thornton [Erikson could fill any one of these spots]. These players, along with the young D-men, present Claude with a serious challenge to his past structure. Certainly the more mobile PP is better than the old umbrella; certainly the speedier players recover their defensive posts better. Claude needs to adapt, with the most obvious the 4th line playing more than filling in, if he replaces Thornton with more skill, and sits Boychuck against the faster teams.

    Louie Eriksson fits on the Bruins the same way he'd fit anywhere on any of the other 29 teams in the league. Where ever the team decides to put him! You're one of the people as to why Eriksson is one of the most underrated players in the league. You obviously don't see what he does when he doesn't have the puck.

    Jordan may have won the a spot in some eyes but he did not out perform Ryan in camp, not even close. And Caron can lose his spot, it happens and has happened. Put Spooner around some NHL talent to see if he can perform (was a standout in camp and in exhibition games) until Chiarelli makes up his mind about bringing in someone else in while he hears how bad Erikssons concussion is.

    AHL numbers ? If you based Caron's numbers on his AHL performance he would be in the ECHL. Putting up Bruins pospect AHL numbers and presenting them to Chiarell and Julien is useless anyways.

    Who would win a race between Caron and Spooner coming back to play in the defensive zone?  Answer that truthfully and you should understand why Caron is up and Spooner is down.  Spooner simply has to start putting as much effort in on defense as he does on offense.

    I'm not in tha camp that thinks if the 3rd line doesn't score that much and aren't on the ice when the Bruins are scored on things are ok. The Bruins were successful in 2011 and 2013 becuase of balanced scoring.

    If you have some specific examples of Spooner not being a hustler on defense, terrible blown coverages or can't possess the puck longer than Caron, please go on.

    The bruins are playing good with out Erikson in the line up. The gm. against the devils couple of unfortunate pen. cost the game. The Bruins are only 2 pts. out of first place with 2 games in hand. I am not too worry about the team. It is nothing new to the bruins losing good players because of cheap hits. AT least McQuaid had the courage to stick up for his mates, Adam done this before. This is why i respect Canadian eastern boys they have a heart of gold. Marchand also is eastern resident but sometimes can pull off some bull headed moves.

    Right at the moment i don't see a trade coming soon unless ... ?
