Re: Bruins moves today

No movement on the RFAs McAvoy, Carlo, or Heinen. Still a bit of a backlog at defense.

Heinen is opting for arbitration. Good luck there. I still won't be surprised if he is not back. He is a 3rd line guy that logged a lot of time [more]

Re: Bruins moves today

Why were/are the Bruins looking for a back up goalie as the article mentioned?

For Providence and as a 3rd option in case of injury.

Bruins moves today

They were pretty active for an inactive team. 7 signings, which includes the Connor Clifton extension. But no splash as all were sub $1M deep depth moves.

No movement on the RFAs McAvoy, Carlo, or Heienen. Still a bit of a backlog at [more]

Re: Bruins news & opinion

Bruins have $12M to spend, if they do so to the limit.

Lets say they get McAvoy at a discount at 6.8 and Carlo at 4.0. The Bruins have been good at selling the concept of 'team' to players, and staying for a full team that made it to [more]

Bruins news & opinion

The priority has to be McAvoy and Carlo, and that has been a bit quiet.

Signing Kampfer to a 2 year low money deal is OK, as he is an injury fill in guy, but suggests to me that either Kevan Miller will be moved … or Carlo will be part of a [more]

Re: Guy Carbonneau, HOFer???

Yeah. A good but not great player. You can give slack on the goal / point totals to Selke winners, and he had 3, and points for longevity, but …. this seemed a stretch.

Bruins needs

The Bruins still have that need for a top 6 RW. They do first need to sign McAvoy and Carlo to settle their cap situation, which looks doable. I don't expect Heinen back, or not for much money. The Bruins are deep on defense and gave their [more]

Re: Kahneman's "Thinking, Fast and Slow

Wow, Saul's board does get cranky.

Thinking Fast and Slow is a very good book, and I thought an engaging read. I do agree Arielly writes some excellent books as well.

Re: Marleau to Hurricanes

They will more than likely buy him out and make him a free agent. And if that happens he is likely to go back to SJ for one more year.

That is the expectation. So, Carolina essentially bought a draft pick. Not uncommon in the NHL. [more]

Re: Marleau to Hurricanes

Why would Carolina trade for him if he might not play for them?

Because they got a draft pick for taking on the salary, and there are league minimums. Teams with slack in the salary cap can use this to their advantage.

Re: I'm through...

It’s just a bunch of sour grapes because your team lost...

Your inadvertent reference to 'Grapes' saddens me more than the Bruins losing. He would have loved this year.
