Uuuuhg !

 

When you are up 5-2, you close them out.

 

Boston has been beyond deplorable in OT and Shoot Out, by this was just cringe worthy. Oh well.....Next.

The key will be getting Patrick and Lindblom back. 

 

G (32) and Jake (30) are getting older, but so are Bergeron (34), Marchand (31) and Krejci (33). They are #2,3,4 in scoring on the team. 

 

Surrounded with the right support cast, plus one or two young guys who crank it up a notch (TK for sure... Lindblom was on his way, Patrick is ripe for a breakout if he gets the migraines under control, Frost?, Farabee?), I actually think our vets are necessary as part of a well-balanced roster. Sandwiched between G/Jake and TK/Lindblom/Provy/etc are Hayes (27) and Coots (27). They can certainly maintain their level of play for another 3-4 years.

 

To the poster who said blow it up... really? What does that look like, exactly? It's too late this year (we wouldn't be bad enough for a top 5 pick). So, if you sell off G, Jake, Ghost... are you really ready for 4-5 years of terrible hockey? That's another hard reset. 

 

I can't imagine the organization and the fans having any kind of appetite for that.

Kind of feel the same about boston, as you stated the bruins core is getting old, so is rask, and the pipeline depth is worrysome.

 

A few studs perhaps, but sweeney has whiffed when it matters.

The major difference is that Boston has enjoyed and is still enjoying lots of playoff appearances and success... including a Stanley Cup. 

 

Imagine if you had blown it up after that historic meltdown against the Flyers. I bet it would look much more like a choke job followed by blowing it up instead of a building block to the Cup.

 

Boston likely has a lot more goodwill built up with the fans than the Flyers do at this point. 44 years and counting without a Cup, and a decade with just two playoff series wins is a hard sell for any fanbase!

 

So, in your case, a 'soft' blowup or sell-off - if it happens - is probably a lot more tolerable in the afterglow of a successful decade.

 

But, the Bruins are at the top of the league, so there's still lots of life in that team.

      I think it's a combination of both things. Certainly it looks like Giroux is declining, which is fair enough given his age I guess.    What I'm more worried about at this point is replacements. TK is the only guy we have whose production seems to be improving to a fairly high level. Couts is still hanging strong, but he does need talented linemates to really shine.    Beyond that, I'm just not sure who we have kicking around to be part of a true top line in the future. Frost

      Lolz at Marchand...couldn’t happen to a nicer guy!   Playoff atmosphere in the building to go along with the playoff weather we have been having in Philly lately.  Let’s go Flyers chants were reverberating throughout the concourse as we were exiting the building.

      A thing I have been telling myself about this group is half of them are really young guys. They are bound to be inconsistent. I feel like I've seen flashes of what could be, especially with Sanhiem...Appleyard said he was having a "dominant WHL game" except he was doing it against the big bad Bruins in the NHL.#6 was pretty damn good last night.  to @OccamsRazor 's point they have played 3 top eastern conference teams and won two and lost by a goal to the hottest team in the league and
