    I mean, we really gonna be outraged about a forearm shiver we saw Aaron ward throw 100 times a game?

    We gonna really talk about how this is an indictment on the organization or Trent Frederic when it was a clean play? Really?

    I know he's replaceable, but that's a terrible waste of assets. Especially for a kid who is not MAKING the Bruins call him back up.

    He’s a cheap, defensively responsible guy with leadership qualities. Only 24. I could see a lot of bad teams taking a flier on him

    Seems like Providence was playing it safe considering his history w the shoulder

    maybe, maybe not, you say he`s an "asset", what would you think, going by what you say about him, he`d be worth in a deal coming back?

    Probably a late pick like a 6th. He’s not a major asset by any means but he’s useful. I don’t think he’s somebody you cringe at losing but I’m not sure waiving him is worth it when Acciari is the worse player imo

    good lord, so tired of NA. Seems like a great guy in the room and busts his arse on the ice but he`s just not nearly skilled enough even for a 4th line role

    He’s had moments where I thought he was an ideal 4th liner.....those moments just haven’t been this year


    I think we’d be better off having Bjork up considering the composition of this team

    Agree nothing against Cave but I don't mind losing him if thats what it takes to put the best team on the ice and hold players accountable for not performing. I don't think he'd stick with another team if claimed and would get sent down like Smith was by us with Dallas having the option to take him back.

    Agree.

    The 'fit' isn't there though because him, Donato and Heinen are so similar and soft and you can't play all 3 in the lineup at the same time.

    I predict Bjork will not re-sign with the Bruins. Heinen, Accari, and Nordstrom are playing in the NHL and he isn't. Poor player management.

    Very disappointed in Bruce’s explanation for not including Bjork on the roster. Wants to play the folks “who got us here”. Where? Look at the standings.

    Well as Harry Sinden once said, he better learn to yodel.

    Bjork will be a RFA, and will have very little choice if the Bruins decide to bring him back, and I have no doubt the Bruins will chose to bring him back

    I suspect his time will come this year but i guess we will see.

    Feel like this is a little overreactive.. hes still young and theres only so many spots. Its management's job to make these decisions and hes far from the first player to uave trouble breaking into a team. I'd say let's take it down a notch with the predictions

    Donato and Heinen are completely dissimilar players.

    Completely.

    True. One can shoot and do nothing else. The other can do everything else but shoot. And Donato is 10x softer than Heinen. Heinen actually wins puck and board battles. Donato gets rag-dolled a couple times a game over simple stuff.

    I agree

    Cave and Acciari both played less than 10 minutes today.

    If that’s going to be the plan, I’d rather see Bjork get those minutes.

    I see that side of it....but with their year long struggle to score goals for stretches of time, at least Bjork has the speed and skill to make something happen.

    This is ridiculous. Bjork wasn't with the Bruins today because he wasn't good enough, plain and simple! Three points in twenty games and people are outraged?? He has tons of potential but he needs seasoning and should remain where he is for now. Lack of AHL time last year may have somewhat stunted his development. Probably should have given him a full year down there from the start. The significant injuries last year (head, shoulder) definitely delayed his overall development. He needs time. Enough with the overreaction. I'm sure he didn't envision this when it was announced the B's would be playing South Bend, but he is a kid who appears to have a good head on his shoulders. Hopefully he shakes off any disappointment he may have.
