    Re: Kevan Miller Makes It

    Practice today . I guess Hamilton is not the 7-8th d-man unless Julien is channeling his inner Belichick trying to fool his opposition .  Doubt that.

    Defense pairs in practice today: Chara-Hamilton, Seidenberg-Boychuk, Krug-McQuaid, Bartkowski-Miller ^CS

    In response to dc-bruins-fan's comment:

    I think NAS is right in that McQuaid could potentially replace Seidenberg, who does appear to have lost a step and whose gritty game will probably deteriorate pretty quickly as he gets older. That said, I can't see him getting moved unless a veteran D-man is brought in some how. 




    I've been one of McQuaid's supporters from day 1 but he's nowhere near Seidenberg's level. Seidenberg is a great combo of hits and blocked shots that's matched by few in the league. He also makes a terrific breakout pass. None of those things are heavily influenced by being paired with Chara and they're a skill-set he's brought to every team he's played for. I can absolutely see him being priced out of Boston (ala Ference) but he's nowhere near as easy to replace as some are suggesting. The guy's a rock solid player.

    Re: Kevan Miller Makes It - Oh, No, He Doesn't.

    He's on waivers.  As expected.

    I wonder if any of the speculation that his sticking for a few extra days meant x, y, z, actually meant something.  Did Chiarelli make some calls to teams who could use a McQuaid, maybe?  Or did he just let it be known that the Bruins felt they had 8 NHL defenseman and see who called and what they had to offer?

    I guess we'll never know.  Unless Seidenberg doesn't re-sign next year because he felt disrespected, and besides, Soderberg was sleeping with his wife.

    Seidz has lost a step but no way do i want McQ in the top 4.  Hes a 5-6 dman and can be used on the pk.  Seidz will finish this year out and move on.  He has been a fantastic pickup.  But until one of the young guys is ready to fill in i am not even thinking about parting with him.

    I don't know how this will affect the experiment Nas is doing.

    Re: Kevan Miller Makes It

    All you guys saying he lost a step... I think that is incorrect. He had a hamstring injury throughout the playoffs last year after the Leafs series, he sat out a bunch of games... Is everyone forgetting this? I'd like to see you skate at full speed with nagging hamstring injury. If he's fully healthy (at 32) then I think he'll be just as quick as he used to be.

    I just wanted those to know I stayed on the thread title....Kevan Miller.  Did he play for the Red Sox?  When first hearing of the 8th defenseman decision, the question was who is the guy?  I cannot remember anyone mentioning his name in threads over the past month.  So I would speculate McQuaid is being shopped.  Did anyone who saw preseason games see Miller as a keeper?

    I think he played good enough in the preseason, but nothing impressive enough to shop any of the current defesemen.

    Re: Kevan Miller Makes It

    The talk about him (Miller) has always been that he's strong, not especially mobile, but sound.  He became a popular "under the radar" guy when looking at the Bruins's depth (I think is was Luedeke who first said he was a guy worth watching).  SanDog has a different opinion - that he doesn't have the mobility at all.  I'll let him complete the sentence if he wants.

    I think it's highly improbable that they would move any of the four vets in the lineup to add another rookie/AHL call up.  Think about that.  Cup finalist returns it's top six from the year before, and then moves one of the more experienced guys so that the top 7 is three guys with more than half a year of NHL experience and four guys in their first 82 game season.  Nope!
