Team: 2019-20 Boston Bruins
Team Explanation
This team still cant score 5v5 goals. Part of it is they are trying to get too cute. But at some point you have to put guys in a spot to succeed. Ritchie is weighing whatever line he goes on down right now.

Bjork has 3-3-6 in 5 games at Prov. Had a great camp. He will be getting a look sooner rather than later. Problem is the only FW that has options is Kuhlman snd he does not deserve to be sent down.

5 stars. I love the idea of putting Heinen on the top line. I would say that I’m not a fan of putting Bjork in the lineup. They’ve rushed him twice and he’s failed. He hasn’t been able to get significant time in Providence due to injury. I would give a good hard look at putting Kuraly on the third line LW and slipping Backes into the 4c role.

Its more or less that theyve put bjork in his off wing and he got injured both times. They tried desperately to get him to work at rw because senyshyn somehow cant get his offensive game to translate from juniors to the pros and their rw prospects are almost non-existent.

Are you saying he got hurt because he was playing his off wing?

Bjork played RW long before he signed with Boston.

Bjork played RW in college and for US jr team. It’s his off wing but it’s his comfort zone.

I like this a lot! that first line is great, but yeah they haven't done much 5on5...
I would just point out that Debrusk and Kuhlman seem to have great chemistry, they put up those two good goals in the other game (that both were overturned), but at least they can connect
But obviously you aren't moving Pasta to the third line so whatever works works!

The first injury certainly wasnt from them rushing him up to the big leagues, the 2nd you could argue was from them rushing him back from the 1st surgery but both were unfortunate. I guess im saying its not his natural wing so it could contribute. (i honestly have no idea how long hes played rw for)

I was thinking about the speed factor. Krejci doesnt play fast and i think that could hinder debrusk and kuhlman together who both play faster. I know its not really the popular opinion but i think they should have moved krejci while his value was at his highest this offseason and gotten a faster 2c to play with these guys.

It’s either him or Lindholm. Lindholm can play C, more versatile , and is useful on the PK so it would probably be Ritchie. But i doubt he clears waivers so they will hesitate.

Another reason they should have just bit the bullet and bought out Backes. Would not have saved any cap space this year, but it would have next year and it opens a roster spot.

I mean they could always try and bury backes in providence... kind of classless move to make but when moore is ready to come back they have to move money anyways. someone is going to get put down and it shouldnt be kuhlman.

What i’m Saying is that the RW is his natural wing.

so back to trying to generate some 5v5 scoring, you would leave bjork down and bump kuraly up and put backes over lindholm at 4c?

If it’s me, I’m signing Coyle to an extension today, putting him with Bergeron and Marchand, bumping Pastrnak down with Krejci and Marchand, call up studnicka and play him with Heinen and Kuraly, and do whatever for the fourth line.

In terms of realism I would like Heinen on the top line, and Kuraly on the third line. plug the fourth together somehow
