With the addition of future first ballot hall of fame inducted Jaromir Jagr, the Bruins field Marshall Julien has some thinking to do. He can slide Jagr into a line, but with the roster 100% intact it means someone is going to be demoted to a lower line and or removed from the ice.

Here’s a couple looks at what the lines could be L-C-R depending on how things shake out.

1:

Marshand-Bergeron-Jagr

Lucic-Krejci-Seguin

Daugavins-Peverley-Horton

Merlot

2:

Marshand-Bergeron-Horton

Lucic-Krejci-Jagr

Peverley-Seguin-Caron

Merlot

3:

Marshand-Krejci-Jagr

Lucic-Bergeron-Horton

Daugavins-Seguin-Peverley

4:

Lucic-Krejci-Jagr

Marchand-Bergeron-Seguin

Daugavins-Peverley-Horton

 

Of course whatever lines are decided with Chris Kelly expected back, things are only going to get messy again. Peverley and Seguin may have more speed than Kelly, but neither is as good at faceoffs, and Kelly is more than sound defensively. Depending on the opponent, and who is in the lineup and healthy on defense, I can see the Merlot line getting spelled out for a mix of Pandolfo, Caron, Daugavins, and various AHL call ups.
