    Pasta signed his 6y/39M steal deal on sept 14th.

    Zero worries about Carlo+McAvoy.

    Seriously. People need to stop being sentimental about former Bruins. McQuaid is not needed, and he's frankly not a good player any more.

    Yeah, who wants a veteran defense man with toughness, leadership skills and can fill in easily for Miller or Moore when out. I know they have depth but Sweeney has seen fit to invite Petrovic to camp as a try out, personally would rather have McQuaid. Can also easily mkae him Providence Captain to help with young D. Maybe even enable Zboril to show some improvement as he has stagnated.

    Guess you learned nothing watching the Blues use Krug and company as tackling dummies in the finals. Miller and McQuaid would have helped because the "puck moving defensemen" looked pretty intimidated.

    Why not trade Krug for Tuch +plus then.
    I want McAvoy (22) and Carlo (23) signed long term 6-8 years.
    McAvoy already the best Bruins allround defenseman, no doubt imo.
    But I would not want Krug for 7-8m/6-8y. Krug will be 29 signing next contract. Think the Bruins should be careful with long term contract on players in general.
    McAvoy and Carlo being the exceptions here

    What does Quaider have to do with the finals? He would have been either hurt or scratched for Clifton. He didn't even play most of last year or any of the playoffs. Quaider eats up more cap that we don't have, a spot that is already filled, and will most likely be on IR longer than the ice.

    I love Adam, I really do, but let it go people. Have him coach/train these kids, not take up a spot and money.

    Love Clifton, still signing Adam to a vet minimum deal if he would accept it.

    I also don't think the prospects on D are as great as many do.

    Remember we still need money to sign the 2 Dmen of the Bruins future

    Right side: McAvoy, Carlo, Cliffy, Kampfer

    Just don't see a fit my guy

    But we already signed him, if they wanted McQuaid they would have signed him instead. The choice has been made, Kamp is just a better fit and the right price for now.

    Maybe Quad didn't want to play here, maybe the price was wrong, maybe he's not 100%, maybe the role was wrong, maybe the sun didn't rise at the right angle that morning.

    Why are you sending the better player down to keep the tough guy? I love McQuaid but he's cooked at this point. No real reason to bring him in besides nostalgia. I know you're the hater of all things prospects, but we have plenty to try and get looks to already, and we don't need another player in the way.

    Thinking this sends bad message to all the quality young D prospect hoping to reach the NHL. Loved McQuaid but he's not new NHL ready. I don't believe he had much ice time last year?

    I mean, that seems like the type of deal that would work well for a McAvoy comparable, am I wrong?

    I think Charlie is more electric, butI feel Werenski has been more steady and consistent at this point, so I'd say yes very comparable, but if McAvoy was willing to sign for 6-7 years, I'd have no problem handing him 7-7.5 mil per.

    its a great deal and Id be surprised if Charlie didnt jump on it, Bruins have the benefit of going to a 4th year and having him end a RFA (unlike say with Carlo). Id do 4 with 5-6 mil a year.

    Werenski is a more complete D man than CM and is only 5 months older. Werenski generates a good deal more offense than CM than you think.

    He's also made it through a season without missing 1/4 of it to injury

    Werenski has outproduced CM at the U17, NCAA, World Junior and NHL levels on a per game basis. He has
    clearly been the better point producer at every level.

    Sweeney said that the Bruins have talked to both players about deals of different lengths, except for ones that would take them up to unrestricted free agency without buying at least a year of UFA

    At the end of the day , all things considered (quality of team , D partner, situational use, etc...), regardless of which you think is better, there is not a whole lot of difference in the skill level of these two players.
    Nor should there be a whole lot of difference in what they get paid.
