Discussion in 'Boston Bruins' started by Gee Wally, Jan 19, 2019.
I needed a chuckle today. Nice one.
Let's not and say we did
I hope to see Kevan on the B's next Fall.
Given how frequently he is injured, the emergence of Connor Clifton and the fact that Boston has some RFAs to sign in the off season, it would appear that the writing is on the wall for Miller.
I hope you are wrong. Miller had a couple of freak injuries this season but he does make a difference out on the ice and is also one of the leaders on the team.
I like Clifton but Miller is better now. Also would love to have BOTH playing
He would have been really useful this series and for the marathon that is getting to the finals and winning one
Hopefully the yutes are ready Freddy
GM DS confirmed Miller out to start but I didn't see any news on Clifton. Is he still injured?
Clifton is playing tonight
I just saw that too. That's good news. They never disclosed what happened but I guess he's recovered enough.
Moore day to day
He took a big shoulder to shoulder hit from Kadri.
It's very good. It puts Gryz back on the left where he is better and Clifton brings some good game.
It sounds good hopefully it is. Cassidy says its not concussion related and right now he'll have him listed as Day to Day.
Honestly, I don't.
My understanding is that Miller has become a decent stay at home defenseman. The way he plays the game -- all credit -- he is often injured, however.
I don't see Kevan as a physical replacement for Adam, Shawn, or anyone, really. I'm not certain how many fights he's had, or won, since he separated his shoulder.
It's not fair but if Miller is frequently injured for long stretches at a time, that doesn't help the club.
DK is critical to Bruins success. Hope he doesn't miss another shift..
I think trading Miller is the right move, since he is injury prone, we have good depth in the D and we can use ELC contracts to fill that role instead of 2,5M cap.
As much as I love Miller, we should trade him. He still has to have some kinda value so we would get a decent draft pick.
Guy cannot stay on the ice for whatever reasons. Factor that along with the pipeline of young dmen they have ready to go, and it makes sense that he'd be the guy you move, imo.
Would be a smart idea for sure. I think Clifton could slide into his role fairly well, not as mean as Miller but can play pretty physical when needed.
Well I guess we can't agree on everything. B's need a player like Kevan and Clifton isn't there .
Kevan is a good 3d pairing and is one of the leaders on the team (plus I like the guy). I have no say of course but I would have him on the B's.
When they say it's not about the money it's all about the money. I fear Kevan is the next Johnny Boychuk, Adam McQuaid because of the money. Love all those guys but bean counters count beans not loyalty, and a lot of other guys will be looking for those beans next year.
If they can dump Miller and Backes Cap Hits (doubt it) it frees up a lot of possibilities
something is wrong with Pasta, not hurt, but his head isn't there. Hes been a turnover machine all year, but the wiff'd shots, jeez
I think he may be hurt , for what its worth. He doesn't seem too have the separation or shiftiness he usually does. He seems up-right more than usual, so I'm guessing its back/ribs/hip/oblique.
I was nervous when Pasta was throwing out all those hits in Game 2 vs TOR
Even if he is hurt - it doesn't excuse his poor decision making and just absolutely whiffing on shots.
Here is the good news - the Bruins went on a 19 game unbeaten streak (is that the right #?) without Pasta in the line-up. I think we are a much better team when he is in line-up and playing well, but we have shown ability to play well without him.
