Julien: Seguin, Wheeler could fill for Savard
By: DJ Bean

Speaking in Thursday's conference call with the media, Bruins coach Claude Julien spoke about the current hole at center for the team's third line. With Marc Savard out with post-concussion syndrome symptoms, it is expected that David Krejci will become the first line's pivot, with Patrice Bergeron centering the second line.

 

"We've got a couple of different options here," Julien said. "I think one of the things we want to see is that maybe Tyler Seguin needs to be looked at as a center as well. We can't put him out of the equation. He's a natural centerman and was drafted as that. He's one of the guys we can look at."

 

Julien also mentioned former first-rounders Zach Hamill and Joe Colborne, as well as Ryan Spooner, all of whom remain in camp with the team.

 

"To be honest with you, I'd still like to see Tyler Seguin [at center] again, seeing now that he's got a few games under...

Perk: 'My spot is not up for grabs'

Kendrick Perkins will not be the Celtics starting center when the season opens, but the big man made it clear Monday at the team's media day that he still considers the job to be his. "My spot is not up for grabs," said Perkins who is recovering from knee surgery. Until he returns, Jermaine O'Neal is penciled in as the starting center, but Perkins made it clear that he expects to return to that role when he comes back.

 

Perkins said he's ahead of schedule in his rehab, but what that means is still a little unclear. The Celtics aren't putting a timeframe on it yet, but the prevailing thought is that it could be sometime around the All-Star break.

Shaq to Kobe: Yeah, I heard you

WALTHAM -- Shaquille O'Neal used Celtics media day to throw a salvo back at Kobe Bryant. 

 

Asked if he heard Bryant bragging about having one more ring than him in the moments immediately after Game 7 in June, O'Neal made his feelings very clear. 

 

"Yeah I heard it," O'Neal said. "My whole career I've been the measuring stick. Glad to see I'm still relevant. I would've been more upset, more hurt, if Tim Duncan would've made the comment. I don't compete with guards. They have the ball more than I do, they shoot way more than I do. You can't compete with guard. I'm only competing w/Tim Duncan so hopefully I can get No. 5 before Tim Duncan, respectfully before Tim Duncan." 

 

San Antonio's Tim Duncan and O'Neal each have four NBA championship rings while Bryant and Derek Fisher lead active players with five.

Wilfork on D&H: 'We kept our poise'

Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork joined the Dale & Holley show Monday for his weekly update on the team. Wilfork was pleased with Sunday's win over the Bills and the defense's focus on fixing its problems. "It's a positive step," he said. "I'm not saying everything's perfect, but it's a positive step. We have to keep building on it. As long as we keep doing that, and being aware of the situations, how a team wants to play us and wants to attack us when certain situations occur, we'll be in good shape. We'll be in good shape. But I'm very proud of the team, how we rallied and we kept our poise. We stayed even keel."

 

Wilfork said the team prepared well for Buffalo and that got the Patriots off on the right foot. "Everybody knew what it was about this week," he said. "It was about us coming out and executing, being aware of situations, and I think we were so confident because we knew that. In...
