The Boston Bruins are stacked on offense in my opinion. Their top-6 is already penciled with Milan Lucic David Krejci Jarome Iginla Patrice Bergeron Brad Marchand and Loui Eriksson all expected to make up the Bruins top two lines. That is quite the combination of size speed and skill.

Skip down to the bottom-6 and you see the Bruins have one of the better 4th lines in the entire NHL. Gregory Campbell Daniel Paille and Shawn Thornton form that line and they bring nothing but energy intensity and a blue-collar work ethic to every game.

Now this is something we’ve talked about at length before and after having a rather lengthy discussion on Facebook this morning I wanted to revaluate the situation. The Bruins 3rd line is where they appear to have their only weakness upfront at the moment and it was a problem all last year as the 3rd line never really got going.
