This level of effort in this thread is yet another example of why they should never hold these games.

Eriksson - Bergeron - Eberle
Skinner - Stepan - Tarasenko
Baertschi - Sutter - Pominville
Paille - Handzus - Clutterbuck

Chara - Seidenberg
Del Zotto - Bieksa
Orlov - Boychuk


Special Teams

PP1: Umbrella

Halfboards: Eberle left, Eriksson right
Goal line/bottom of the circle: Bergeron
Net front: Pominville (Chara late in games)
Point: Del Zotto

PP2: Shooting

Strong-side halfboard: Skinner
Goal line/bottom of circle: Stepan
Net front: Tarasenko
Point men: Chara, Orlov

PK FW 1: Handzus/Paille
PK FW 2: Sutter/Pominville
PK FW 3: Bergeron/Eriksson

PK D1: Chara - Boychuk
PK D2: Seidenberg - Bieksa

Late in games (in pretty much all defending situations) Chara & Seidenberg pair up with one of Boychuk/Bieksa rotating in for whichever's tired.


C: Chara
A: Bergeron
A: Seidenberg

Style of Play

Emulate the real-life Bruins.

Offensively: Lots of D-to-D on breakouts, with faster forwards coming in to help slow (read: non-Del Zotto/Orlov) defensemen break out. Adding Orlov gives me more opportunity to skate the puck out and limits the opposition's ability to clog the neutral zone and stifle the breakout. Dump the puck hard around and get 2 men deep to help win the puck back. D are allowed to pinch to secure puck possession, center plays 3rd man high to prevent odd-man rushes the other way if possession is lost.

Defensively: Two-man forecheck with one aggressive forechecker and one cutting out the middle of the ice, defensemen pinching up the boards to limit zone entry. When in-zone, center comes deep and helps win board battles, big defensemen clearing the front of the net to allow Holtby clean looks. Opposite of Laviolette/Tortorella "block shots at all costs" approach, which should allow more rebound control and less deflected goals.

Overall: Spread out the ice time pretty evenly among four lines, conserving energy for my top 6/9 for late-game situations where they're needed.

Chara/Seidenberg with Paille - Bergeron - Eriksson when I need to preserve a lead.

Del Zotto/Bergeron on the point with Chara net-front when I need a goal late.

I'd whip the 'peg's candy asses
