    Don't get me wrong, I'd be psyched if he is ready or one of the other kids is legit ready to make the jump.

    I still refuse to believe that the DPB on here is indicative of most Bruins fans. Once again just sad what so many here think regarding physical hockey vs "skilled" (soft) hockey. A mix is the ultimate goal but for all the crap I and some others take here for wanting hockey to still be physical its amazing how many just want skilled with no grit. Flat out sickening

    Are you ever going to actually respond to these people who want skill and no grit? You complain about them virtually non-stop, and most of the rest of us can't seem to find any of these posts. So either you're complaining about something that you know doesn't exist here, or you're misunderstanding what people are actually saying

    As for the crap you take, it's because you keep going on with complete bullshit like this "DPB" nonsense. If you could have a rational conversation about the topic for once, you wouldn't get so much shit.

    It's not about what you're saying, it's the way you're saying it

    If you wanted a mix, I’d agree but you don’t. To you, Carlo and Mcavoy aren’t physical. The truth is they have a mix of physical and skill. You want all physical and no skill as far as I can tell.

    What’s sickening is you strawmanning other posters positions almost every time you argue. It’s either straw man or extreme hyperbole or something irrelevant.

    Chara, Mcavoy, Miller... All physical

    Carlo is growing into his body and game and I believe what we started to see from him late last season will be the norm, a physical defenseman.

    Krug is small and skilled but if you think he’s a princess I’d question if you even watch games.

    Grzelcyk, small but no fear in his game.

    Moore, I have no idea.

    Is it worth getting this upset on losing a defenseman that is injured almost every year and 7th on the depth chart at best?

    McQuaid was our vehicle for the trip down memory lane....the big bad bruins... The bruisers.
    That was then this is now
    And now doesn't require tough talentless players to win. He was a 7th D at best 6th on one of his good nights that's when he wasn't watching which seemed to be very often.
    I do like the guy kinda hard not to like a guy who fights anyone and fights well especially when we are losing you can send him out to beat up an opposing player and fans I suppose gain some kind of a redemption sentiment... But let's face it ...it's nonsense
    If one considers his abilities, his injuries etc....Mcquaid was a liability and quite a costly one imo. And let's not forget he's going be 32. Good move Donny you dumped a little salary 2m approximately and a player that wasn't needed.
    Good luck to you Adam

    Bruins traded a 5th round pick to get McQuaid almost 12 years ago. He isn’t worth a 2nd now.

    Trades happen. Get over it.

    It’s not as if the player taking the bottom pairing RHD is a light player. Kevan Miller is tough and a more dynamic skater.

    It’s not always about skill...but it is almost always about SKATING.

    Adam McQuaid, at this stage, is a below average skater.

    If you value size and toughness over skating...then you can tune in to the NFL on Sundays.

    Solid point about the trade to get McQuaid here. I honestly think the trade value was pretty spot on.

    Exactly. I love Quader, but the dude is 32 in-season, has 38 year old mileage on his body from all the injuries and playoffs, and is good for about 3/5th's of a season most of the time. It's lucky to get that cap hit off the books. This is what it is man. He can still be idolized for all he did without freaking out. The team will be fine. Adam too, will be fine.

    And if you value skaters that are average and go into extended slumps were they make bone headed plays..... then you can tune into the ahl.

    No one here has said they don't want grit or toughness. The group that Fenian is constantly complaining about flat out does not exist here. That's why he never, ever quotes those posts. That's why when he's called out on it he never, ever follows up. Because he knows it's BS.

    If I'm wrong, then it should be very easy to find some posts by the members of this apparently large group here that actively say they do not want tough players

    But all the players you defend are all grit with no skill.

    Of course, any sensible hockey fan wants someone who can actually play while still laying on the hits and being tough. That combination is exceedingly rare.

    Well they definitely lost toughness, there's no question about that. The question is how much of an impact is that going to have

    McQuaid was definitely really really high on the toughness scale, but he was likely going to spend more time than not in the press box, so the real effect on the team is probably not all that great. -

    God help me if you ever become the Bruins GM if that day comes I will take my life within 2 hours. Jesus this is a cap league with penalty's attached to buyouts and bonuses. I am now on radar when it comes to you as I was warned and sir you have now earned that title. I am 54 years old and your cold hard facts of the direction of the way the NHL is now is astounding! Do you not get it at all. No team at the top 10 in the NHL pays a dman 2.75 million a year to sit in the press box. You also do not sit on your hands if you care about said player let him waste away up there when oppurtunith lies elsewhere to do right by a player who did so much for your team as a loyal soldier. players watch how others are treated and the perception will always be Boston did right by Adam. If you can not see that then I have no further words for you.

    Good post until the last sentence. I prefer toughness and emotion over soft Montreal like skating teams, and still like hockey more than football.
