    Overreaction, it doesn't say we signed him.

    Depends on how much they sign Debrusk+Grzelcyk. There won't be much room to sign a winger after those two depending on who they're trying to sign.

    That makes more sense . I’m a Habs fan so if I say sign him you must ask yourself why . PTO would be the way to go if you were curious

    Has Haggs ever been right ? Well looking into his toaster and saying something out loud doesn’t make it rumor

    Either that or Murphy and Haggs talk to each other a lot and pretend to be each other sources.

    Job description. Day dreamers

    Why not add McQuaid and Boychuk, get the band back together. See if Timmy will come out of the woods and play.

    In all honesty, he can probably be a 7th defender or something. I'd take him for AHL depth. But it's still a bit funny.

    It won’t be to go to the AHL. The Habs bought him out so he wouldn’t have to be stuck there.

    And to save millions of dollars. But I'm sure that had nothing to do with it.

    It cost us more by doing it this year, ideally the habs would have waited until next year and kept alzner buried. Bergevin did Alzner a favor, but if it ends up biting the Bruins in the ass, I'll forgive him.

    Any team that thinks Karl Alzner is an answer had better reconsider the question.

    Costs the team more to buy him out than bury him. Have fun playing him in the NHL. I see McAvoy needs a partner :laugh:

    Bruins AHL team is losing Petrovic, Lauzon, Zboril, and possibly Vaakaneinen.

    Yeah that's why Montreal who had 8+ million in cap space over the duration of his contract buried him in the minors in favour of superstars like Brett Kulak, Mike Reilley, Xavier Ouellette, Christian Folin, Cale Fleury (1 point in 41 games), Gustav Olofsson, Otto Leskinen, Noah Juulsen, David Schlemko, Jakub Jerabek, Brett Lemout and Rinat Valiyev.

    No, that is not why they did that.

    I don’t understand why the Bruins are looking at Dmen unless it’s for guys that want to play in Providence

    McAvoy
    Carlo
    Gryzleck
    Clifton
    K. Miller
    Moore
    Lauzon
    Zboril
    Vaakanainen

    that’s 9 Dmen and that’s if Chara doesn’t come back, it’s not the most experienced or prettiest group, could look a lot better if the last three kids on that list can prove to be capable NHL Dmen like they were drafted to be in the early rounds...

    Cant imagine by now there’s legs to this. How many teams are vying for Alzner lol. They’re probably considering him for Providence. Nothing more here

    Uh yes it is. Like I said in my post we had no need to save cap or money, he was a burden to our team. He was refused to be called up even with multiple injuries, and the players I listed were chosen instead. I'm assuming you don't watch any Montreal games, because Karl Alzner is clearly not NHL caliber any more, even on a bottom pairing. He isn't even doing good in the AHL.

    from what I understand based on comments attributed to alzner himself... he just doesnt get the zone defense played in montreal

    dude is only 32... a former top 5 pick... a standout in Washington for a decade... I predict theres every chance he will become a useful nhl dman again. if nothing else you really got to admire his ability to stay healthy and never miss a game due to injury

    if he is willing to take a 'prove it' deal in providence... we got a potential spot for him when chara retires.

    its looking like providence depth chart could be

    vaakanainen/berglund
    alzner/miller
    ahcan/wolfe
    possibly kamfer will be back although he could just retire for covid

    it looks like a championship defense in providence

    up front...

    fillipe/studnicka/lantosi
    lauko/carey/kuhlman
    Lindholm/federic/steen
    blidh/hughes/mcgreg

    I might have the lines off...
    but this is good mix of vets with a couple kids looking to break out

    having a winning culture in your ahl team is a good thing... I like the idea of miller/alzner being down there to help the locker room, and they both have a shot to make an impact for the big team before playoffs imho
