*Offense:’ With Marc Savard out indefinitely, one would think the Bruins would be hurting down the middle. Except they have David Krejci, Patrice Bergeron and number 2 draft pick Tyler Seguin, and a team philosophy that places defense first With decent scoring on the wings, the B’s had barely enough offense to make the playoffs, but they’ll need to get production from everyone to be competitive.Grade: C+’'’Defense:’’’ With Zdeno Chara leading the way, the Boston blueline has a great act to follow. Physical, talented with the puck and offering more than enough experience to keep the Bruins in games, the Boston defense will not make a fun night for any opposing team. Johnny Boychuk has already made a name for himself as a heavy hitter, and playing in a town living under the legend of Bobby Orr can only inspire better defensive play.Grade: A-Tim Thomas>Goaltending:With a Vezina Trophy winner at backup, the Bruins might be the deepest team in the league at goalkeeper. Tuuka Rask is fresh off a fantastic rookie season, and was considered a frontrunner for the Vezina at the start of the season. While goalie controversies are normally not a bad thing, in this case, it’s a win-win for the Bruins.*Grade: A+’
