    Is this even debatable? It's Game 7 of the Cup finals. Not even Alex Kovalev is lazy in Game 7 of the Cup finals. It was a bad read and not knowing how much time was on the clock, and you can put a bit of that on the guys on the bench for not yelling out the situation to him.

    No, it’s not.

    My point is Nylander got grief for lazy lackluster play. I don’t think the two players are comparable — nor the reaction of fans to those players.

    Really.... as I said, we sometimes see what we want to see. Marchand missed the goal in Game 7 that would have made him the hero and then the line change and now the narrative is etched.

    Marchand’s real problem on that play was either staying out too long or hustling too much when he was there. He was gassed when he went to the bench which you could see on his face. He wasn’t catching anyone in that situation so he tried to get someone else out there but it was too late.

    So, Free agents....

    Surprised we have not heard any movement after the Werenski deal. Figured that would get the ball rolling.

    Still confident something gets done this month with Carlo and McAvoy. The Krug stuff is all media-driven nonsense. Of course, there has not been any talk yet with him about an extension, Sweeney does not know what he has to work with yet.

    For me, it has more to do with him appearing tired and also not producing.

    Don't compare the guy who led the playoffs in scoring to a fraud like Nylander.

    Shame Gryzlyck just let ROR stickhandle in front of Rask and didn't step up and make a play. Him playing over Clifton was beyond disgraceful.

    Even ignoring the fact that Gryz playing didn't prevent Clifton from playing, this is such a bad take. Gryz is better than Clifton

    Bruins Charlie McAvoy, Brandon Carlo still without contracts - The Boston Globe

    Unless financial pixie dust sprinkles down over Brighton overnight, the Bruins will open training camp Thursday morning with two top young defensemen still on summer vacation.

    Restricted free agents Charlie McAvoy and Brandon Carlo, who play on the Nos. 1 and 2 pairings, respectively, as of late Wednesday afternoon had yet to agree to contract extensions with general manager Don Sweeney.

    “Still a work in progress,” said Sweeney, who took over the GM office in the summer of 2015 and never has had a projected roster player not report to camp because of a contract impasse. “We continue to communicate every day and we are hopeful we can find the right deal for both players — they’re important to our hockey club and we’ll continue to work at it.”

    This Morrisey deal should help push things along even more. Hoping by Monday we have our two boys back in the fold.

    Provarov is fairly comparable to McAvoy IMO. McAvoy has numbers but Provarov hasn't had injury issues. They're both young and expected to be top pairing defenseman for their respective teams.

    He's a stud and hasn't missed a game in through his first three years - certainly doesn't have the sizzle of McAvoy but he's definitely a steak.

    So this is where McAvoy should come in at if he signs that long?

    I'm gun shy about his injury history, but yeah that looks about right to me.

    If we sign him at around $7M, what is Carlo worth... We don't have the cap space as is to sign both. Damn Backes deal is killing us!

    Good comps now for short and long term deals. Should help move things along.

    Provorov was 6th in ice time for D last year and was the D leading goal scorer the year prior with 17.

    McAvoy will not get much more than 6,75M on a 6y deal if any.

    Werensky and Provorov just set McAvoy contract. It will be between 5 and 6,75 depending of the term and I’m perfectly fine with that.

    As for Carlo, the only way his Cap hit reach 4M is if he signs for 8y. No offense D aren’t getting paid.

    McAvoy
    15M/3y
    39M/6y
    56M/8y

    Carlo
    5,75M/2y
    17,5M/5y
    34M/8y
