Ok, this is not good. Young, promissing big center shelved for a month, starting goaltender with injured knee and line shifting taking place only 3 games into the season. What is the main problem with this team? Aside from the super large names on the backs of the road jerseys, it is their defense. Inconsistent play on the back end has led to too many easy goals thus far in the season. Marco Scandella has struggled. Clayton Stoner looks like 2010 Stoner again and Keith Ballard looks ready for bar-league hockey.How to fix? I don't know, other than trying new combinations and maybe mixing in Matthew Dumba more. Head Coach Mike Yeo's leash is starting to stretch.

We're only three games into the season, so it's too early to draw any conclusions, but a few things have jumped out at me:Parise and Granlund are tied for the most points on the team - Parise has 3 goals, Granlund 3 assists.Koivu (0-2-2), Niederreiter (0-2-2), Suter (0-2-2) and Brodin (1-1-2) are tied with two each. Harding has a .950 save percentage in his only appearance. But for taking a penalty shot cold, he'd be perfect.Konopka has an impressive streak of fighting majors, and owns 37% of all PIMs of Wild players (17/46).

Tomorrow, October 10th, 2013, marks the first visit of the Colorado Avalanche to the Garden since the same day in 2011 -- a game the Avs won by a score of 1-0. A lockout shortened season last year resulted in no cross-conference matchups, and so two full years have passed since Matty Duchene, Varlamov, and the rest came to the Hub to play a game of hockey puck, and I would hazard a guess that most us didn't really think twice about their absence from the Bruins experience in the interim. Boston -- for reasons you all well know -- has a bit of an odd relationship with the Avs. It's nothing like the history the Bruins have with the Canadiens, or the Flyers, or even the Rangers. There are no 1930s brawls I can point out to you (obviously) and no evocative pictures of bleeding and bruised players shaking hands I can pin at the top of this post. The team (and heck, even the franchise -- ‘sup, Nordiques!) just hasn't been around long enough to have a playing history of the same tenor as those the Bs share with some other teams in the league.. In fact, the Bruins and Avs have played just 134 games in the course of their history: Boston holds an all-time record of 69-49-15-1 against our friends from Colorado, and has scored an average of 3.93 goals a game against them. They're in a team that, in recent years anyway, we've only see play the Black and Gold once or twice a year. Even in the deep recesses of the history between the two teams, stretching all the way back to 1995, the games were interesting or not, depending on the night, but taken together, fairly unremarkable. The first game ever played between the Bruins and the newly relocated Colorado Avalanche, for example, was a low-key affair. 18 years ago, on almost this exact date (October 11), the Bruins visited the brand-new Avs at McNichols Arena. Despite efforts by old friends Cam Neely, Adam Oates, the Bs lost, 3-1, largely on the failure of both special teams to live up to expectation. The power play was terrible, and penalty kill not good enough, and overall, the Bruins' first loss that season smacked of dissatisfaction with the team itself, rather than any real feelings of competition or animosity towards the Avs: "We're not getting the job done," said left wing Kevin Stevens, who has yet to score a goal. "We can't get the puck set up or anything." And so it would go: the Bruins would lose, not terribly, not in any way that caused panic or overwrought dismay. The Bruins lost in the first round of the playoffs to the eventual Stanley Cup finalist Florida Panthers; the Avalanche, in their first year, rode their successful first season all the way to the Stanley Cup. While the Bruins didn't do much against the Avs that first year, the overall record stand in favor of the Black and Gold. But the record doesn't matter, that first game doesn't matter, really. There's only one thing that matters when it comes to the Bruins and the Avs, one thing that, despite a really meh overall history between the two teams, will forever connect the two teams, and the two fanbases. I know I don't need to tell you. There's not a Bruins fan alive I need to tell. I'm going to anyway. On June 9th, 2001, the Colorado Avalanche gave what the Bruins never could to one of the best soldiers Boston's ever had. After 22 years of being one of the best in the league at what he did, Raymond Jean Bourque raised the Stanley Cup. No player had waited as long. The trade that sent Bourque to Colorado after 20 years in Boston was extraordinarily bittersweet: The Boston Globe wrote in the days following the trade: "So we join thousands of fans in wishing Ray Bourque well. He deserves better than this year's Bruins. So does Boston." Boston couldn't give Bourque the Cup, not that year, and there was no reason to believe the situation would change in the year after. As Bob Ryan wrote the morning after the Avalanche defeated the New Jersey Devils for the Cup, "We have a new metaphor to stand for

New season, new ideas - looking at those who have started out hot (and those who have stumbled), that infernal Martin Erat question and more. Debate, discuss, enjoy! I’d be remiss if I didn’t kick this off with a mention of Mikhail Grabovski, whose legend has already begun to grow. Why? Oh, no reason, unless you consider 7 points in 3 preseason games impressive. Or the fact that he followed that opening act with a (credited) hat trick and a bonus assist in the season opener against Chicago, and an assist on a game-tying goal plus a shootout tally the following game. The points are nice (…seriously, they’re really nice) but in his brief time here he’s also shown a knack for going to the net, a beautiful skating stride and the ability to get walloped in the face by Zac Rinaldo and keep on truckin’. If that second line ever clicks... watch out. Speaking of clicking, the Caps' top line certainly has been so far, as Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and Marcus Johansson have all come out of the gate hot. They're putting up points, and while they haven't been producing at even strength (just like everyone else) they're still maintaining possession at five-a-side and getting their chances - the even-strength points will come. In the meantime, they've looked like a cohesive trio, clearly comfortable with one another and capable of breaking out some dazzling moves. We've seen how this trio can drive the direction of the team; if they keep it up, the rest will (hopefully) fall into place. It'll be interesting to see how long Connor Carrick sticks with the team, as each game brings him that much closer to the magical ten-game mark. The decision to send Carrick back to the OHL or the AHL would seem to be a fairly easy one on the surface - give him as much experience as possible without burning a year of his contract. But with Jack Hillen now out for 4-6 months, can the team afford to be without an extra body on the blue line, especially with most of their reserves requiring a trip on the waiver wire? One hopes something like that wouldn't be the reason to keep a kid who, while improving every game, is probably not NHL-ready just yet... (Bruce Bennett / Getty Images) Hard not to feel a little bad for Martin Erat - this is a guy accustomed to playing top-six minutes with top-six linemates, and instead he's relegated to less than ten minutes a night with a grinder at center and a rookie on his opposite wing. I can't really imagine a scenario in which he remains on that line, whether he's moved up to another line or simply moved, but it really does bring up the question that pretty much everyone is asking: why? Is it something Oates is seeing in him (or rather not seeing) that is keeping him on the outside? Is he simply on the fourth line to provide stability and defensive consciousness to a rookie learning the ropes? Or is it really just a matter of having too many bodies and not enough ice time to give? It's confusing, particularly given how clear-cut most of Oates's decisions have been in the past. One of the bigger issues for concern with the Erat situation, though, is the fact that early on it didn't sound like Oates had even communicated a plan or a reason to Erat (although it appears that this has since changed). Combine this with what Mathieu Perreault said shortly before being shipped to Anaheim: "You're wondering a little bit if they're trying to find another guy to play in my spot. I don't know what's their mindset, what they're trying to do." Until now Oates has been billed - and seemed to have lived up to the reputation - as a great communicator, but to listen to Erat and Perreault, it sounds more like the days of Dale Hunter than anything else. Does this communication only extend to those who are "his guys"? There's nothing about this Erat situation that doesn't stink. And while debate and discussion is always a good thing and is part of being a fan, am I the only one tired of
