Sunday Skate: Believe it or not the Bruins do have weaknesses

After former Bruins goaltender Andrew Raycroft told Dale Arnold on the Zero Pucks Given podcast that a healthy Bruins team has no weaknesses this week, Ken Laird and Matt Kalman spent the beginning of this week’s Sunday Skate program explaining the areas of concern Boston has with 10 games left in the regular season.

“The second-line right wing and the third line are still concerns,” Kalman said. “You went out and traded for these guys but you don’t know what you’re going to get out of them and so far [Marcus] Johansson got hurt and [Charlie] Coyle has been a solid, do-the-little-things, play hard, play smart guy. But this isn’t the Riley Nash of last year, who gave you all those points and made that third line an excellent third line. And even with that third line you couldn’t go more than five with Tampa.”

There are other questions marks as well, including whether the Bruins’ defense is deep enough even when healthy, if the Bruins could survive injuries to their forward corps in the playoffs and what would happen if coach Bruce Cassidy had to pull Tuukka Rask and go to Jaroslav Halal during a first-round series.

Give a listen here to Sunday Skate and be sure to tune in every Sunday from 8-9 a.m. on 93.7 WEEI-FM.
