    Bruins 2021 Season Thread

    From reading here, and with Carlo already on the team, isn’t Lauzon’s skillset replaceable? Zboril would have the rarer skillset. Still, I guess I can watch him and see over the whole season. On the other hand, maybe you offer someone like Carlo to Seattle for a draft pick? If I recall, Las...

    Bruins 2021 Season Thread

    Thanks @cshea always appreciate your Bruins updates. I look forward to watching more of the games in coming months. This past year has been so messed up. You’d think with work from home there would be more time for sports but for me it has been the opposite.

    Bruins 2021 Season Thread

    I’m similar to others, haven’t watched as much as I’d like. How have Zboril and Lauzon been? I mean, obviously good, but is Zboril showing first pairing upside? Second pair?

    Bruins 2021 Season Thread

    This year will be be all about how the young defenseman perform. McAvoy as the 1, Gryz as the 2, Carlo as the 3 and whoever performs best as the 4. If all the young guys flop, has anyone seen Yandle play lately? He’s expensive but could maybe be subsidized and fill that role out.

    I looked up his stats and they seem fine. 3 more years is a lot but perhaps the Bruins can get Florida to retain a couple million per year. If the young guys fall flat over the first month or two, he could fill a Krug role as power play specialist for the Bruins.

    2020 Dolphins: Aloha

    Good point, I talked myself in a circle there. It will be interesting to see the receivers with Tua after the bye week. It’s nice that they have some players to put around Tua.

    2020 Dolphins: Aloha

    I don’t think I am being clear- it sounds like we agree. Miami should only care about projecting what their receivers will do with Tua because that’s the only way they’re ever going to make the playoffs. So, if Grant will work best with Tua, they should get to that as quickly as possible. Now...

    2020 Dolphins: Aloha

    Why does anyone’s chemistry with Fitz matter? Parker and Williams seem great, just a matter of if they work with Tua and stay affordable. Parker’s deal is nice for his current performance. I don’t understand trading for Breida and then not using him. He seems great. They seem to still have a...

    Bruins Offseason Roster Thread

    A poster said they could be beasts next year. True, but they could also miss the playoffs. Without an upgrade somewhere or some luck with young players, they are awfully close to that Chicago phase where they’re more of a pretender than contender for a few years. Edit: no one is to blame for...

    Bruins Offseason Roster Thread

    They have 11M in cap space with Gryz and Debrusk left to sign. You can call that 6M, but it’s closer to 10M if they hadn’t signed Smith. https://www.capfriendly.com/teams/bruins

    I don’t understand why the Bruins wouldn’t offer even 1/10 or more unless they thought making him the highest paid player would create locker room issues? I mean, they have cap space.

    Bruins Offseason Roster Thread

    I heard that the draw for Hall was: 1) playing with Eichel and ability to put up points 2) Chance to get contract next offseason 3) ability to choose destination/avoid expansion draft; supposedly this was a significant factor I was wrong about the Bruins being a draw it seems.

    Agree with your overall point, the dollar$ are always (usually) #1. At the draft there was talk about how his favorite player was Bobby Orr and how he liked the Bruins style of hockey. We will see. I do think Colorado has a nice situation for him if he fits capwise as they extend people.

    Not even a typo! Just a brain cramp. 2010!

    Studnicka is the 2/3c in 21-22’. So that is an easy no. I feel like Hall is coming here. In that 2015 draft, there were rumors of him wanting to be a Bruin. And the Bruins had a preference that they wouldn’t disclose but it seemed like Hall also. As it turns out, everyone would have been...
