<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>LetsGoPens69</b></div><div>What would Sens fans think about Guentzel, Pettersson, Poulin and 2022 1st round pick for Tkuchuk and Zaitsev..?
Zaitsev’s contract is 18M total and Pettersson’s is 20M total and Pettersson has one more year of term. And Pettersson just turned 25, signed till hes 29 years old. He fits in way better with Sens timeline, and Zaitsev(29 years old and signed till 33) fits with the Pens.
Poulin is a 6’2, 215 pound power forward, he’s not Brady Tkuchuk, but should play a similar role very soon.
Guentzel signed long term for 6M. Tkuchuk needs a new deal.</div></div>
I don't think there's much that gets the Sens to move Tkuchuk. I mean, there's trades out there, but not that's realistic. I'm not sure they'd do Lafreniere straight up. I don't think there's anything the Pens could do outside of Crosby+. Not saying anything about 'fair value', but that I think the Sens (team and fanbase) value him more than the rest of the league would.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Shane_Kelly</b></div><div>1, this "twitter bot" is one of the best Bruins Content accounts out there, 2. you can't be comparing the Hall of Famer Jarome Iginla to Jake, not top-6 forward at the moment Debrusk, 3. I also watch the games, and he has had too many lazy moments to count. For example, last night in OT when he changed instead of staying with his man in the 3 on 3 OT. Another example, after Kuraly's muffin pass up the middle, (he is also playing poorly) Debrusk took a wide looping turn out of the zone rather than stopping on the puck and trying his best to generate some back pressure to at least attempt to prevent the cross-zone pass that led to the caps goal.</div></div>
It's not working for DeBrusk right now. Going for the change - you could criticize him for the opposite as well, staying out. As far as the turn vs. stop - that's a decision - make the turn and maintain speed, which looks really good if the puck gets back to the Bruins quickly, or stop and maybe not be able to get back into the play. I watch DeBrusk going hard on forecheck, hard on backcheck - working hard is definitely not the issue, in fact I'd wager he's being told to pause and then react a little more often, becuase he's sometimes skating himself out of the hplay.
I think it looks like he's overthinking things - which is pretty much the same as the old "gripping the stick too tight" saying. I think he'll come out of it - but it looks painful right now. He needs to relax and play.
