Julian Needs To Recognize Young Talent For 2015 Bruins

With the 2015 NHL training camp underway for the Boston Bruins their’s no doubt that head coach Claude Julian has a short leash. The Bruins said good bye to long time GM Peter Chiralli right after the 2015 season. The Bruins failed to make the playoffs and were eliminated a year earlier by the Canadiens.

Time will tell how successful this years team will be. The Bruins traded long time veteran Milan Lucic to the Kings as well as defenseman Dougie Hamilton. With salary a definite issue Hamilton was probably the teams best and healthiest defenseman. Earlier this week it was announced that veteran defenseman Dennis Seidenberg will undergo back surgery and will be out six to eight weeks. With that said that leaves thirty eight year old Zedeno Chara carrying the load. After that theirs injury prone Adam McQuaid, young Torey Krug, Zach Trotman , Joe Morrow, Jakub Zobril Kevan and Collin Miller and free agent Matt Irwin fighting it out for the fifth and sixth spots.

If the Bruins are going to be successful this year Julian is going to have to be patient with second year players David Pasternak, center Ryan Spooner, and Seth Griffith al showed flashes of brilliance last year but can they do it night in and night out in the NHL. Julian was heavily criticized last season for the way he  handled  his young players.If the Bruins are going to have a winning season the young Bruins will have to step it up. The Bruins added ex Duck and left winger Matt  Beleskey to add some scoring punch from the left side. This was one of the weaker areas for the Bruins last season. Also the Bruins acquired ex Panther and rugged right winger Jimmy Hayes to the lineup.

Goaltending seems to be an area of strength for the Bruins. Long time net minder Tukka Rask returns for another season.The question is can Rask carry the tea for the season and hopefully the playoffs. Rask isregarded as one of the leagues top goalies. If Rask gets hurt the B’s have young Malcom Subban and Zane Mcintyre in Providence.

Theirs no doubt that Claude Julians leash is short. But the Bruins will need a lot of factors in order for the bteam to reach the playoffs. The Bruins need to regain their identity of four years ago and play like Bruins.
