No joke? Friedman posted.
I'm gonna miss that guy.
I hate this move.
What the frick?
The team just got significantly softer, lost a rock solid bottom pair guy who can play with anyone, and the locker room culture/leadership just took a big hit
Rangers offical account.
Today is a sad day in my Bruins fandom
Too many NHL level D-men and too much spending on the press box.
McQuaid put his body on the line for years for the Bruins but in the end fell in the rankings.
Boston was spending 4M on press box just because of defense.
Yeah I am NOT a fan. Love McQuaid and am not looking forward to playing against him.
True warrior. The Bruins are gonna miss him.
I really, really, really f***ing hate this move this close to the season. Reeks of the Boychuk one.
Obviously McQuaid isn't as good as Boychuk was, but he's a guy who is very well liked on the team, one of the few guys left from the 2011 team, has been a rock solid 3rd pairing guy for pretty much his entire career here... I get we're getting deeper on defense and have more, maybe better options, but this was a trade to make in July. I don't get it.
Going to miss McQuaid very much. You could not have asked a guy like him to give more during his stay here. Thank you Quaider!!!
I'm fine with the picks but Kampfer was terrible the first time he was here and his attitude was worse than his play.
Kampfer probably just a throw in. The picks are the real return of the trade.
Unless this is a move to dump salary for another trade the bruins have lined up, this trade makes no sense. Really questioning Sweeney’s trades during his bruins tenure.
Bruins are running out of toughness. Teams are going to take liberties
Love Quaider. Hate to lose him but he was going to be in the press box and he can play in NY.
Kampfer is on a two-way contract, will probably get through waivers and can play in Providence and be a respectable call up on the right side if needed.
My guess is McQuaid asked to be dealt rather than sit as the spare RD.
Sure you save some money against the cap, but they aren't up against the cap now (not even close really).
Guy will be missed.
McQuaid was overrated here but why get another mediocre dman? Is he waiver eligible?
Also Gorton and Sweeney seriously love each other
Will miss him the guy was a warrior.
Maybe free's up space for Nash?
Who cares if he was going to be in the press box? I’d rather that than $2.75M in unused cap space.
There’d better be another move to justify this.
Don't like the trade at all.
I like if even less of you tell me this means Kampfer is now our #8 defenseman
what the f***
Garbage deal by Sweeney unless he's bringing someone else in and needed the money.
This f***ing sucks! All this time, Darth Quaider's been one of my favorite players, along side Lucic.
I know he's a part of the old school game, and isn't the fastest Dman any more, but this team really did seem to play like they were a few inches taller whenever he was in the game. He did his job week in and out. Blocked shots like a champ, took on horrible injuries with perseverance. Fought his ass off against all comers and scared agitators league-wide shitless. You couldn't ask for a better teammate.
Good bye, Adam! Good luck in New York. Please don't hit Bergy or Brad too hard when you play against them....
I hope so....
