Lucic is out with a broken finger for 4-6 weeks. Total bummer. Looks like Thornton will be pulling double tough guy shifts for a while. Chara can also throw his weight around, but he's needed on the ice more so then the box.
But with Lucic out, it's suprising how much the look of the team can change. Bringing up Marchand, Sobotka and Lefebvre will add some speed rather then toughness to the lineup.
Marchand is tied for first in most goals in the AHL with 6. Which is good news if he can start off where Kobasew should have. Sobotka will hopefully will make up for a bit of Lucic's toughness and provide a bit more of a goal scorers touch. I'm not to familiar with Lefebvre, but I'm excited to see what he can bring to the team.
Maybe the trade of Kobasew and some fresh faces will bring some consistency to the Bruins game.
