    Back to Ryan White, I am way more in favor of signing him now that McQuaid is out for two plus months.

    So, can we get a tougher forward already?

    LA has been running Boston tonight and we have nobody interested in responding.

    After Pasta got run, Backes yapped at MacDermid but he would beat Backes up pretty bad ---too bad that Backes is our toughest forward out there.

    Bruins are responding by hitting right back; I haven't checked but I'm pretty sure the hits are pretty even. Chara has been stapling the Kings forwards all night long.

    Yeah, guys like Pastranak have been pissed off trying to throw hits all night and get revenge for being roughed up ---I can think of better things for him to focus on and would rather have a 4th liner focused on running MacDermid etc.

    The Kings have been playing a heavy dominating game --it is ONLY tied because Rask has stolen this game.

    If we have an "energy" line trying to throw meaningless hits, we may as well get a guy in there who can actually throw impactful hits that will put their D's head on a swivel.

    DeBrusk planted a couple of people. Same with Backes. With the exception of the Kempe hit, everything has been clean. It's been a hard, physical game. 35 hits for the Kings, 34 for the Bruins.

    Got to think they’re just waiting on a Beleskey deal to wrap up before they sign him. It makes zero sense to keep him in limbo.

    Who would take him? Very hard to believe somebody would trade for him.

    It depends on what the Bs are willing to give up in addition to him.

    Don't know what they promised him, but if they don't give him a shot now with Acciari, Backes, Krejci, and Spooner out then I can't imagine they ever will.

    They're looking at rolling out 5 rookie forwards tonight. . .

    It may not the most reliable source, but capfriendly still shows his PTO with Boston as active, but he hasn't played with Providence at all that I can tell. They signed him 10/10 right? I would have thought we'd have heard something by now.

    No updates yet? Can it be that he tweaked something or isn't in the best shape? Right now I would think that he'd be a better **** stirrer than Beleskey. The other night against Columbus they were anemic in the first period or two .

    Send Belesky to the AHL, let him (try to) get his game back. Sign White, move on. Maybe Belesky's value will improve, maybe it won't. But I can't see his value getting WORSE than it is now.

    They need White or a player like him ASAP. There are options in the minors that wouldn't cost too much and considering that Vatrano is firmly in Cassidy's doghouse I would use him as trade bait. Spooner they need to use as a piece to upgrade the top 9

    I DON'T THINK YOU'RE allowed to sign a player to a PTO and assign him to AHL.

    Agreed. Just how much could we get for Vatrano? The guy is simply not good.

    Pretty funny combination of two sentences.

    Pugnacious center Ryan White remains in camp on a tryout basis, but Cassidy said so far the team has attempted to fill holes with in-house candidates.
    “Those are internal discussions. I think it’s a matter of exhausting our options that we do have with guys who have been in the organization that we feel can help us, depth guys. We talked about adding to our depth in the summer and that’s getting tested from Day 1 here. I think we’ve done a good job with that. Some guys have done better than others, that’s normal,” said Cassidy. “And without kicking the can down the road, those are (Don Sweeney’s) decisions on who he signs and who he doesn’t.”
    White said he has possible opportunities in the KHL, AHL and other NHL clubs, but his first choice is the B’s.
    “Don’t want to give up on the dream,” said the affable White, who is being paid just a per diem to stay with the team on the tryout deal.

    You're probably correct, as otherwise why wouldn't he be getting some game time in otherwise.

    You would figure if White were part of the teams plans at all they would have signed him for the Caps game. One of the types of teams I'd like to see more size dressed.
