Welcome Ryan Donato!!
Happy Belated Birthday Zdeno!
Donato with a hatty? What , expectations too high? C`mon
I`m excited to watch the kid but in all honesty, keeping all expectations in check....for at least one game but THEN, I`m hammering him on the interwebz whenever a mistake occurs. B`s take this 3-2 with Holden potting the winner....book it
So Ryan is confirmed in?
He scores his first tonight then
Columbus have won 7 straight. Don’t take them lightly and come out strong tonight!
Welcome Ryan Donato I used to watch you Dad !
A win with no injuries please !
HERE WE GO BRUINS...HERE WE GO
Didn't realize the Jackets have won 7 in a row, but hey if we can beat the Lightning with all of our injuries, we can beat the Jackets.
GO BRUINS! GO DONATO!
My ex wife and her family were next door neighbors to the Donato family growing up. Small world.
Is Donato going to play Center or LW?
If he's a future center I'd put him between Marchand and Pastrnak out of the gate.
He'd also look good playing LW on a line with Krejci and Rick Nash.
I'd expect him to start at LW. While he's played center in college, he played wing in the Olympics and I don't think the Bruins are going to throw him 100% into the fire tonight. MAYBE center is an option down the road, but for tonight, I feel we see him 3rd line LW with Gionta and Wingels. Maybe he's with Krejci and Nash, but Heinen has been playing well there. We'll see what happens.
I’m thinking you are right and the Top 6 will remain the same (Riley in between 63/88) and Wingels will center Donato/Gionta on the 3rd line.
Any word on what number he’s been given?
I haven't seen anything, but you'd think they'd just give him #16?
It would make sense, but 21 is available also. He probably has a lot of relatives with those jerseys and it would save them some cash this time around...
Doesn't Szwarz wear #21 this year? I feel like he can't wear a number that was previously worn by a different player the same season. Seeing he's still in the organization.
It was a joke...
But, seriously, I’m not sure how that works. There is nobody listed as 21 currently on the B’s roster, so I assume it is technically available (unlike say Bjork’s 10, which is still his even though he’s out for the year).
scheduled a massage, acupuncture and back adjustment for tonight. Had I known Ryan was signing that wouldn't have happened.
Smartphones and headphone. Be a real fan! Some things are more important
Ha...I need total relaxation with needles in my back.
He's wearing 17
Donato and Z
What a welcome sight
WTF w/ this Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday BS.
This isn't the NBA.
I can no longer tell the difference...............in the refereeing at least.
Seems as though this team went from always needing at least two forwards, to having three legitimate scoring lines with nobody having to play up a line, in a matter of a couple weeks.
I am pretty surprised Donato is playing. Really surprised actually. Would he be playing had not Backes gotten hurt ?
