    1 of 2 possibilities

    1)boychuk and/or stuart will be back for the bruins next game against montreal

    2)Give Mcquaid some playing time in providence instead of doing nothing during the break

    Yup, we'll put him to good use down here in Providence. We need the help and he can use the playing time.

    Abso-effin-loutely.
    Especially McQuaid, keep him sharp for his return.  And he should return.

    its nice to see the B,s reestablish alittle youth & depth on the backline.....stuart,boychuk,hunwick & mcquaid all good young talent & i heard that alexradrov is soon to be signed & should be here next year.....id rather see mcquaid go down & play then be stagnant around boston ......how well has hunwick been playing clamman....hes looked good lately but would love to see him get alittle PP time.....julien drives me nuts with his stubbornness

    I would also send down Sobotka .
    Not sure if Bitz can be sent down without passing waivers but he needs some conditioning.  Lucic also but he for sure cannot be sent down although I hope he's not on some beach in Mexico rather working on his conditioning and skating.
    Sorry Looch !

    Luc will be at home watching the Olympics with front row seats, probably in GM's box with Stevie Y alongside Recchi watching Canada.

    Actually, Looch would do good to be in some warm weather location. It does wonders for joint injuries (high ankle sprains etc).

    Hey bruins8. You do know that if Kessel was still a Bruin, Boston probably doesn't feel the need to go after Horton like they did, right. Get over yourself and support your team, if you really are a Bruins fan.

    Re: McQuaid assigned to Providence... WHY??

    Why?  Because he is the least skilled D man on the B's roster.

    McQuaid did a decent job filling in during the injuries, but with Stuart coming back(and eventually Boychuk), they will not need McQuaid. 

    A lot of people have jumped on the McQuaid bandwagon because he won a nice fight but, he is less-skilled than the rest of the B's defense corps.  He is not the best skater and is a little slower moving the puck than any other guy they have on the blue line.

    I don't think McQuaid is awful, but he is below the others on the depth chart and it's nice to know he is ready to step in when needed.

    Not just the fight, McQuaid has passed out some pretty decent hits, including the one that led to a Bruins PP against LA.

    I think they should sit Wideman for a game here and there to wake him up.

    I think they should have all the rest of the defensemen compete for their jobs, anybody makes a mistake they view the next game from the press box.  Keep everyone on their toes.

    McQuaid certainly deserves a few more starts.

    BadHab- i am truly puzzled at how CJ is dealing with Wideman!  The kid struggles and he plays more.  He plays awful and he stays on the top 2 D pairings!

    CJ at least figured out after 3 months of awful play that it is a good idea to limit the minutes of the awful 4th line.  No such learning curve in managing Wideman!!!

    I dont think widemans great, but I do think he has improved since the since the kings game. No errors like he used to, the whole team is starting to come together. Hopefully they can get on a little 3-4 game winning streak after the break and get hopefully a 6th seed

    Wideman made 2-3 really bad mistakes in the FLA game, the Panthers weren't skilled enough to turn them into goals.  If he has improved, it has been very slight.

    wideman also had 2 assists in the florida game so that kind of cancels out the mistakes

    Not Really.  When Wideman makes those same mistakes against a good team, they will score goals.  I agree he has been playing a little better.  He's now bad instead of horrible.   I'm with BadHabitude; play McQuaid and sit Wideman.

    I wasn't trying to compare Wideman to McQuaid, but if i did DW would get the nod.  He has much more potential(in spite of his shortcomings).  McQuaid can win a fight but is not very skilled. If he played the same minutes as DW he would be even worse than DW is this year.

    One more reason McQuaid goes to Providence...

    MONEY!  While he's down there he gets minor league pay and doesn't count against the cap.
    Even at a prorated amount w/the minimum salary, clearing a few extra cap bucks never hurts before trade time.

    Although the primary reason is that Stuart will be back healthy after the break along with Boychuck.

    "Wideman playing well."
    What does that look like?  It means he racks up some more offensive numbers.  Same defensive mistakes, not as horrible as his first year as a Bruin, but still the same mistakes.
    It took him until about 2 months ago to coral loose pucks at the blueline, a good bantam defenseman should be able to do that.
    Problem with impulse control, he just does things sometimes just because.  He's got time and then he'll just do something for God knows what reason.

    Defensively when Wideman is hitting on all 4 cylinders he makes a crisp pass out of the defensive end.

    This is not a guy you want on a serious contending team because he is the one who will go nuts and do something insane like pass one out across his own goal goal mouth with a disasterous rersult.

    Re: McQuaid assigned to Providence... WHY??

    I just don't see what the 'pro Wideman' fans see in him.  I see a guy who makes mistakes on a regualr basis in both ends of the ice and can't bury a shot.  Yeah, he makes a nice pass every now and then, but no better than anyone else.  What exactly qualifies Wideman to be considered a 'puck moving' defenseman?
