    You say barring an injury like like the entire top 6 plays 80 games each a season

    McAvoy 63gp
    Carlo 76 gp
    Killer 68gp

    Kevan "Lou Gehrig" Miller has missed almost 100 games the past 4 seasons.

    I just hope the same people that were for this trade don't whine when we deal a better pick for a worse defenseman in February

    True and honest, give me a break with the lecturing. His previous season before last he played over 70 games and before that over 60 games. I predict he'll play over 65 with N.Y. this year

    Bruins had 26 fights last season. 11 of those fights were by players who aren't on the team anymore.

    McQuaid had 6 of them (he was 6-0 btw)

    Kevan Miller had 4
    Backes, Chara, Kuraly had 2 each
    Noel. Carlo, JDB, Pasta, McAvoy 1 each.

    Regardless, fighting doesn't even matter anymore really, but if someone was concerned about "dropping the mitts" it's not like there is a cavalcade of guys ready to take over it would seem/

    Valid point about the injuries. I think it's a bit of a red herring to talk about a worse defenseman in February though. McQauid, for all his toughness, was pretty clearly the 4th defenseman on the right side. If the team is dealing for a worse guy, that means the right side was decimated and none of the kids could ably fill in. This menas the season has gone terrible wrong. In that case, they are not likely buyers anyway.

    You specifically said LAST season stats showed he played the majority of the season. You were absolutely wrong and I pointed that out. That's not lecturing.

    And yes, he'll probably play over 65 in NY because he doesn't have three guys clearly better than him in front of him (just on the right side) like he does in Boston. Allowing him to play is one of the reasons he got traded. He almost assuredly would not play 65 games in Boston, so I'm not sure why saying he'll play 65 in NY proves anything.

    No shit. They have openings on the blue line. Boston doesn't. Disingenuous.

    this thread is comedy gold though when people bring up the oft injured McQuaid's history and pimp up Killer when McQuaid has in fact played more games then him over the past four seasons.

    Comical.

    I don't think anyone has "pimped up" Miller with regard to missing (or playing in) games. McQuaid's injury history is well know, so it makes sense in a McQuaid thread to mention it.

    To counter this point, barring injuries I'd assume they'd have a list of teams McQuaid would ice against. Washington, Columbus, California teams, perhaps others.

    The right side is hurt a lot and McQuaid was in that group. Carlo has missed the past two playoffs. Miller is a long shot to play 70 games. Zboril will be the key I'm guessing.

    I wouldn't be making that decision but I'd hope someone like Gryz who the larger opponents will be looking to squish against the boards on a forecheck.

    I'd rather we not let Gryz build up a concussion resume, and at his size I think he will.

    We don't want Chara fighting, Miller is decent at fighting but generally does fight for himself, Backes should not be fighting anymore. Who else? The new 4th liners?

    I misread it. My apologies. I still think that you're being disingenuous by completely refusing to consider the possibility that this season he would have spent an awful lot of time in the press box.

    I think it's fine overall. Adam gets to go to a place where he can earn his one last pay day instead of not playing a good part of the year.

    I wonder if they traded him out of respect to McQuaid. Both parties knew he'd be sitting in the press box a lot of evenings yet he's still a very valuable NHL d-man that's done a lot for this team. I'll miss seeing him out there - but am strangely happy that he'll be an NHL regular again this season.

    The point is, you can be the toughest, most passionate player on Earth...and if you can’t skate, you will be in the ECHL if you’re lucky.

    It’s a fact...it’s not about preferences here. Yes, the game has changed. But there is still room for grit, toughness and big hits. The difference is that the 4th liners of today can actually skate and make plays.

    I think it's a very real possibility that DS approached Quaider and presented the opportunity. If I'm Adam, my goal is to secure another contract and the best chance at that is NY, not Boston.

    And they have 3 guys who can play LD or RD in Moore/Zboril/Lauzon. If Miller went down, I'd imagine that Moore slides to RD and Gryz fills the #3LD spot. They could also use it as a chance to give Zboril/Lauzon some NHL experience.

    I'm one of Moore's biggest fans, but that wouldn't be the best idea IMO

    Would think Zboril would play.

    You honestly think that 5 foot 10 Andrew Shaw is going to be taking on 6 foot 5 Adam McQuaid?.....

    It's pretty much completely impossible to have any sort of conversation about toughness around here. It's just endless talking in circles
