Yeah, signing Miller this early is perplexing (and he’ll likely start on IR/LTIR). I can absolutely see them putting Lauzon on the 2nd pair with Carlo and having a big “tough to play against” pair that has logged enough minutes to be steady. The problem, as you point out is that it’ll tend...
I think they will give Lauzon a shot at the second pair.
They may find a way to get a scoring wing and/or a more experienced D once teams see how their arbitration hearings shake out. We’ll see.
Would love to see what Senyshyn could do with Bergy while the big guns recuperate. (Would be even...
So emerge without a victory tomorrow, secure third pick. Win and it could be anywhere from 3 to 6 (Tigers, Orioles, D-Backs).
Maybe Pivetta pitches well and then the bullpen remembers it is 2020 and lights itself on fire?
OEL is precisely the type of defenseman to pursue but 8.25 Million AAV over 7 years for a 29 year old gives me pause (plus acquisition cost). That could end up handcuffing the team down the road.
I wonder how the FA market will settle out this year, particularly for contract lengths. Maybe...
I don’t see any chatter (yet) about WR Thomas or RB Taylor. Would be nice to have both on the practice squad.
edit: Not definitive but Jeff Howe says “It doesn't sound like Jeff Thomas will be joining the Patriots practice squad at the moment, at least not among the early wave of...
Now that Chara has indicated he wants to be back I’d be surprised if Sweeney doesn’t ink him to another 1 year deal. And it’ll be up to Cassidy to use this version of Chara appropriately (Limited minutes, 3rd pairing, PK). But that takes away 1 spot for the younger players.
