    He hurt his lower back from stuffing his wallet with all those checks from Dunkin' commercials.

    I disagree. I believe he is hurt. It seems the wrist would be the most likely issue.

    He's still better then the 13th forward so I hope he finds his game playing through it, but I have to believe the injury is impacting his game immensely.

    “I think trading Miller is the right move, since he is injury prone,......” That should make teams banging hard on Sweeney’s door.

    Seriously, what do you think he would bring back? Try to look at it from the acquiring team’s perspective.

    I think he will bring back the same type of return as McQuaid did. Maybe a nominal pick and a depth player, 8th D/14th F.

    I am not excited about this, but I realize that it is a very realistic possibility.

    He would bring about what McQuaid did I would imagine- at least a 3rd or 4th round pick. Not much more I don't think.

    Teams who want to compete but lacks in RD could give 3rd rounder or maybe 2nd round pick (bit too optimistic i think). Atleast I would be fine acquiring Miller for 2nd or 3rd round pick for my team.

    Devils and Panthers looks like teams that could go after him.

    Btw how is Anders Bjork doing with his injury?

    Twitter is saying Grz has a serious knee injury?

    seems he's ok

    This stuff about Miller being injury-prone is pretty ridiculous. We're not dealing with Jacoby Ellsbury fragility here. His last two injuries were 1) smashing his kneecap after crashing into the boards, and 2) being slammed in the throat by a shot. In other words, just bad luck.

    There is no way he isn't dealing with an injury that is significantly impacting his stickhandling and shooting ability whether it is his thumb or something else.

    Could be a case of him also being healthy scratches but Kevan Miller has never topped like 65-70 games a year and I think he did that once. Not so wild saying that hes injury prone.

    Not a Bruins injury, but did anyone see Werenski's hand after taking that shot? Gross. Surprised he finished the game.

    That ballooned out so fast, I was surprise he could get his glove on!

    Yup. And all though I’ve been impressed with Krug during the playoffs, if you really want to free up money and add a truly impactful wing - Krug commands a lot of those beans.

    They could move on from Miller too...it wouldn’t kill’em...that’s a chunk of change, combined...and I think we both agree we might have replacements in-house in say Vaak and Clifton. Sure, the defense isn’t as vet solid...but adding a elite wing would make this team even more dangerous offensively...and I don’t think many of us would hate our D. Lots of Clifton and Vaak fans.

    Damn thing blew up like a balloon. I'm guessing a bad sprain, if it had been broken he wouldn't have been able to return

    Good question about Anders. I have not heard anything, either, on his recovery. I would assume if his shoulder is healed he can at least begin to skate.

    I have high hopes that this talented kid will be a big contributor next season.

    Im big on the kid. But IMO I hope they let him start fresh in the AHL and work on his game. He played just under 40 games two seasons ago and just over 30 this season each split between the B's and PB's. Let him slow roast in the AHL this coming season. At least until you cant give a reason not to call him up. Just my two cents. All in all, what ever they do with him, I just hope he can make it through this coming season healthy

    Exactly. Guy plays like a warrior with no regard for his health, and yet some want to just chalk it up to being injury prone -- as if he's somehow softly built or made. On the other hand, if he were to shy away from contact and not block shots he'd be a guy unwilling to give it all for the team. Sometimes you really can't win.

    I was sorry to see Quaider go and will be sorry to see Miller go when he does. Definition of Boston Bruins if you ask me.

    I like Miller's snarl, but if he's not injury prone then injury prone doesn't exist.

    We have 2 days off after game 2 so that might help DK and the team in general?

    I truly love guys like McQuaid and Miller, and I am always sad to see them leave. But these guys drop off fast and the smart play is to get out ahead of that drop. Just like we did with McQuaid. And just like I hope we do with Miller this off season.

    If he was making a million, take a chance. But 2.5 is too big of a gamble. Especially when we have young D forcing their way up onto the roster.

    Yeah, the latter is what makes this a no-brainer, even though I love Miller and his game. The Bruins have done such a great job at drafting and developing D, that it makes decisions regarding players like McQuaid or Miller alot easier than in past years (think of all the finger-crossing we were doing back then with the likes of Trotman, Morrow, Cross, Bartkowski, etc as the heir-apparents coming through Providence). If anything, now there is kind of a logjam at D, especially if Vaak (and maybe Clifton?) continue their trajectories.

    I was listening to NHL radio today, and they talked at length about how good the Bruins D is.....without ever uttering the word "Chara." This has been a long time coming, IMO, and it feels good that it's finally being recognized.
