Forward lines shake up

Team: 2020-21 Boston Bruins
Team Explanation
Debrusk was forced to play right wing when pasta was out so maybe he can be effective. Debrusk needs to play with skilled players he looks lost on those grinder lines. I hate to move Craig smith but we heard them rant and rave about this line in training camp so maybe give them a shot and hopefully get coyle out of his funk. I also feel Freddy needs to come back to add some spark. Thoughts?

DeBrusk isn't good on the RW, the last/current experience just confirmed it, no? The top6 lines are great, keep them together.

Second line has been awesome. Bruins go like 7-2 in their last 9, and just because it’s too straight people want to mess with the lineup. Weird.

If there's any indication to you that JD cant play RW was literally last game when cassidy moved ritchie to 4LW so JD could play 3LW mid game. It has never worked nor will it ever work. And why fix something that aint broke? the top6 has been the deadliest it has been in years.

I hear you guys, I just know Craig smith will drive the play on most lines he plays on (hopefully get coyle going) I guess I’m just not ready to give up on debrusk being a contributing factor to this team offensively and krecji and hall have looked good. Also the fact we haven’t really seen that Ritchie, coyle, smith line thought it might be a nice change considering we didn’t bring smith in to be on our second line.

Yea the switch up wasn’t so much that I think were playing terrible I just felt like guys aren’t up to their potential, but I suppose 6 games before playoffs we maybe shouldn’t be playing around too to much
