    Can someone please show me who on the Bruins defense is soft? As in Montreal soft?

    Even without McQuaid, in comparison to most teams, this is a tough group. Carlo might be the softest of the group - and yet, I am sure Sweeney and Cassidy are asking him to play with more of an edge.

    If Zboril gets an opportunity, he can play a tough game too. That is partially why he was valued over Chabot.

    What is flat out sickening (aside from your constant referrals to comments that never actually existed), is that you claim to advocate "Physical Hockey," but you don't. You advocate fist fighting.

    It may be difficult for you to understand, but there are more than 3 sports in North America, besides fist fighting, soccer and ice capades.

    One of them is hockey.

    And yes, I and everybody on these boards like fast, skilled, physical hockey.

    Gryz is probably the softest. I don't know much about Moore at this point so I can't really say. Carlo played pretty soft last year up until March, and then it was like a switch was flipped and all of the sudden he was angry. I really hope he keeps that up.

    The rest of the D group is tough enough, imo.

    I agree the Defense is still pretty physical and tough, that said, they lost their one guy who would plaster a face in if someone got hit or got a cheapshot. I just don't like it at all, especially if that $2.5M is used on someone absolutely stupid like another depth 13th forward or a 7th d-man.

    Other guys will have to step up.

    I don’t see the B’s spending the $2.5m on a 7th D or depth 13th forward.

    McQuaid’s a UFA next summer though so that really doesn’t make sense

    There is no guarantee that the kids will step up this year like they did last year. In the even things turn south this cap room allows Sweeney to make some moves.

    Wow, this thread continues to grow. Who would have believed moving a depth defenseman could have generated so much interest and controversy. If we needed another sign that it's time for the season to start . . .

    As RB pointed out, McQ was a UFA at the end of the season anyway.

    This is about Cap flexibility for this season I would imagine.

    If there is one thing the B’s have, it’s depth. Why trade McQuaid for another 7/8th depth D? If anything, he became expendable because the B’s feel Zboril or UV can step up if necessary (and are cheaper).

    And even if the B’s wanted to bring on a player like Winnik, he’s not costing you McQuaid’s cap hit.

    With a touch over $5m in space now, if the B’s do need to make a move, they have the room.

    Which is what I'm really hoping for. I don't see a move for a D-man coming, but i would definitely like to see something in the top 6.

    Agree.

    I think the D is in good shape, even without McQuaid.

    Might as well trade for him now so extension talks can start. Seguin would be my top trade target. Play him at center or RW, plus you have a successor to Krejci.

    My first thought after the trade was that I see the Bruins using the cap room to bring back Rick Nash. I'm not sure how I feel about such a signing, but I feel like they liked what Nash brought to the top 9.

    Who liked what Nash brought? he is a completely useless floater. As for Quader, we lost locker room leadership, he doesn't give you much on the ice and is never healthy.

    I'm still hoping for Panarin, but i think it might just be the "hope" side of things. I think he'd be fantastic.
