    GDT: - 2019 NHL/Bruins Free Agent Talk II

    This is NOT the 2015 draft thread . This is the Free Agent thread.

    So going forward if 'you' hijack the thread be prepared for warnings and bannings.

    Time to lock Brandon Carlo up for the long-term. I'm ok with any number on this guy, he's the perfect RD partner for a scoring LD (like Krug).

    Carlo on a bridge cannot possibly be more than 3 million? Get it done.

    Too bad he’s not healthy. Bruins could have gotten a good return in a trade.

    Color me shocked.

    I don’t know about a “good” return, but probably a return similar to what McQuaid fetched.

    Would like to get something for Miller, but then again if Cliffyhockey has a sophomore blip or (God forbid) gets hurt, there are problems on that right side. Kampfer isn't any sort of long-term option. Axel is not yet a rose either. I guess Gryz can play his off side if needed.

    I really love what Kevan brings , I really do. What I don't like is how often he can't bring it. I gave up on this guy a while back. This isn't kicking your drug addict friend to curb, it's realizing he's not gonna ever gonna make it.

    Just for the record. No, I'm not trying to suggest Miller is a drug addict but he's a guy who is not going to make it IMO. Physically, I don't think he's gonna make it.

    Agreed. Would move him if needed. But if not needed, he's a beast they should keep for depth.

    Yes, brutal injury he had, but he's a complete workhorse when it comes to conditioning. You have to believe he's the type to do everything in his power to heal up and be as strong as ever. So, when he heals, he's one guy I give a chance to get his game back and show he's ready for the challenge.

    They could have really used him against the Blues. He's worth the risk, if it works with the cap.

    So Miller had a setback on his broken knee cap which is why he's not going to be ready? Is he going to LTIR as well with Moore?

    That’s fine. Having a Miller and a Moore in your back pocket is not such a bad thing. When healthy, both are serviceable defenceman that may prove to be very valuable down the road.

    In the meantime, LTIR is waiting....

    Carlo 2 years @ 2.8 or so would be great to see today. The guys did just fine with Killer most of last season. Their defensive depth will handle that adjustment. They need Carlo however, he's a defensive horse.

    Would love to see Miller play 60 games this year, but I would be happy with 40. Too bad injuries have derailed his career because he is just what they need on D right now, physical D who is big and can skate and hit.

    Miller sure has some space between his knee cap, if that counts

    While I don't disagree that his skillset is still valuable, with McAvoy, Carlo & Clifton all emerging on the right side they can afford to lose him.

    That said, I could see Clifton having a sophomore slump and Kevan returning to eat up his minutes by December.

    I think we'll know what we have in Clif within the first 2-3 weeks and if he isn't bringing it then we'll see a call up before Miller or Moore return.

    I really really liked Clifton last season, but would be okay with seeing Vaak, Zbroil or Lauzon step in if need be.

    The dreaded Sophmore Slump is real.

    Hope Cliffy can rise above it.

    Lets watch Colorado sign their guy for under 7 million and watch the Leaf fans wonder why they don't have the grit and depth to beat any real playoff team.....

    That injury is bad especially since it came back when he wasn't playing. I've expected him to be on LTIR to start all along. 10-15 teams would be calling about his services for a year if healthy.

    Nice to know that our RFAs are locked up and we are 4 deep on the right. I am a fan of Clifton and Kampfer. Left side looks 5 deep Lauzen and Vaak are NHLers. Don't think anyone other than those 9 will amount to anything. Wonder if we can get something of interest for Zboril who could use a new organization?
