While Andrew Ference is serving out his one-game suspension, the Bruins have a difficult decision to make. Do they turn to rookie Dougie Hamilton or Aaron Johnson to fill Ference’s role?
Both players have their pluses and minuses. Hamilton may be the better player, but including him in the Bruins’ lineup would split up Dennis Seidenberg and Zdeno Chara. Johnson hasn’t played for more than a month, but the B’s don’t really need Hamilton’s scoring prowess against the Leafs. It may be better to keep Chara and Seidenberg together since Ference will only be out one game.
WEEI’s Mike Salk and DJ Bean debated the issue on NESN Daily‘s Two Sides segment. Watch the video above to see who won.
