Eric Karlsson was brought up to play with Mr. Kuba...plane and simple! (That was the day 1 game 1 master plan.) And they want a right hand shot to run the power play point!
Lee was sent down because he scored a goal and stopped shooting...then he took a dumb penalty at a bad time.
Picard is taken off the Power Play because he is a left hand shot and he missed an open net.
Volchenkov was supposed to be back for Boston but will play Heatley with one arm if he has to. (Anton is staying...we love what he brings! He's a Bryan Murray kinda guy!)
Phillips needs old #24, he's getting a little fatiged.
Carkner needs to again settle into his 5-6 role with Alex, heel his wounds and begin to dominate again from that position.
Nobody is being traded to anyone yet...who are you going to trade?? Kelly is back...the kids up front are to be given a chance to show...Picard has beat out Lee and Campy fair and square the coaches love the guy, he listens...the Boston tieing goal! Do you big time traders want to move Spezza...I guess not!
This is just every day garden variety hockey team type moves @ Twenty games!
What a luxury to have an extra DEFENCEMAN as I project he shall be needed again almost straight away...
