    He was told not to report for what it's worth.
    Trotz wasn't a fan of his skating. Don't think he'll work out here either, but a free asset that maybe does something.

    If you look at the prospects thread, I think, Dom posted something interesting along the lines that this could just be a favor to his agent who also represents a substantial number of Bruins- whatever it is, as you said, it does no harm to give him a PTO and see where it goes.

    I remember that back when he played in the Czech Extraliga, I thought that he would certainly make it to NHL. But that was already couple years ago. I hope he can turn it around. According to some interviews in the czech media. He kind of lost motivation in KHL and decided that if he ever wants to be in NHL now is the time.

    Well.. they played like Europeans ,lots of drop passes,lots of shots
    Bakos will be a good AHL add,Celharik was a bit more involved than past few games. Looking forward to seeing more Kovar

    If I remember he didn't look bad at all. Nothing to write home about, but he did a decent job on the 4th line while he was up. He brought some jam, that I do remember.

    Notes on Kovar, Cave and a P-Bruins win
    Coach Jay Leach smiled when asked for his impressions of Kovar’s performance.
    “He’s an interesting guy. I don’t know if you would call him the fleetest of foot. By the same token, he gets himself right in there. He’s not afraid of confrontation. He’s clearly a heady player, makes some plays. It was nice to see him score a goal,’’ Leach said.
    “For a first game, having not really skated in the last couple of weeks, I thought it was a pretty good showing. It will be nice to get him in practice this week for a full week. He can get acclimated to the power play and his line.’’

    He only receives the expletives because he's paid like he's the best forward on the team. But overall, I don't disagree with you, although I'm hoping that younger players slim that gap down a bit.

    Colby Cave deserves a chance. Throw #58 on him. It just feels right.
