    I remember him at Center but if I remember right they moved him to wing from time to time,he was a very good AHL player for us

    Thanks for the info. Only played center for Grand Rapids and Cleveland. If I can be of any help to you in the future don't hesitate to ask.

    For those who missed it
    Szwartz to Ottawa
    McIntyre to Vancouver
    McNeill to Austria
    Old friend Tommy Cross got a 2 year deal with Florida
    And finally Divver reported Joel Messner will get an AHL deal with Providence, he was a decent fill in and the best of the ECHL Atlanta call ups

    any idea what has held him back from getting a shot at the NHL level? I`m only asking as I don`t think I`ve seen him play

    That’s pretty much it. He’s fairly one-dementional, although I truly appreciate his toughness and willingness to stand up for his teammates. He pretty quick to jump on anyone who goes near his goalie.

    Would hope Axel Andersson would play for Providence.

    If you want him to play big minutes and run the PP I think he belongs in Moncton
    Plus @BruinsNetwork thinks that's where he'll end up,playing in the Q will be good for him,hopefully...

    Sweeney doesn't want to rush the kid... they need him to work on his defensive side. Best place for him to learn that, it's with Providence, where he can be developed by the coaches on a daily basis.

    Don’t agree with the second part. Think the best place for him to develop his defensive skills are in the CHL right now. Some of the things he struggles with, like timing and handling the forecheck low and behind the net, will be exploited much easier in the AHL. He also won’t get the TOI he needs in Providence.

    I firmly believe the coaching staff in Providence is much more qualified to help Andersson's defensive and overall game.
    I'm not against him playing in the Q... but IMO Providence has the better tools for his toolbox.

    As of now he wouldn't play much,he'd get great coaching but no way to show off his talent sitting in the stands,defeats the purpose
    Maybe he has a great camp and maybe they finally move a left shot D not named Lauzon or Vaakanainen to make room

    Isn't Andersson a Right shot RD? If so does Vaak/Lauzon/Zboril block his icetime?

    He is and there's a serious need for a good one in Providence ,I missed that...
    They'll still probably play Lauzon or Zboril on the off side to start

    I still think in that scenario, since we really need a good one on the right side, That the Bruins will do what it takes, without rushing Andersson, play him in Providence and guide him into the right path. I also think Andersson his highly prized and should be handled accordingly.
