    I've said it before, I'll take Warsofsky in the line up all day over Miller or McQuaid.

    I'd rather have either of them all day over Warsofsky and apparently Bruin management agreed with that last season.

    Uh, no offense to anyone here, but I think I know how Wharsophski is spelled.  Not only have I been one of their neighbors for 75 years, but I actually gave birth to David some years back, I officiated over the marriage of his parents, served in the CIA with his grandfather, and once had a torrid little love affair with his great aunt.  She was a naughty biscuit.

    Anyhow, don't tell me how to spell his name.  Oh, gotta go...David's calling...

    Seen him play many times at many levels. I think if he gets a chance, especially on a good team like the Bruins he'd be pretty good.


     


    His weaknesses are he is not as good defensively as those two, and he tends to lose battles for puck possession in the corners or along the walls. In both those aspects, from what I've seen, he was a lot better at them in April than he was in Novemeber. I'd argue those are McQuaid and Millers strengths. In front of his own net, he is very good at getting to rebounds before his oppnonent, when I saw him at the end of last year, it was obvious how much work the kid had put into his defensive game. Positioning was night and day.


     


    First pass out of the zone, it's not even close. I think this is his bread and butter.This to me is one of the more underrated parts of the game.  Tomas Kaberle was a pylon in his own end yet made a pretty good career out of this. Very good on the power play, terrific skater.


     


    I understand why people like McQuaid and Miller, I get why the B's management and coaching staff have them out there. If I had my choice, especially in the playoffs, I'd want a player like Warsofsky out there than them two. In my opinion he has the ability to have more of a positive impact on a game then those two.

    Sorry Kel the B's have an identity in the league as a hard hitting, rock solid team. Warosofskee doesn't fit the bill unless it's to replace a Bart, or a Krug out of the lineup who basically all have close skating abilities. I think the B's are going to need both McQuaid & Miller. Not saying to not keep him, but I certainly don't think he makes Miller, or Quader expendable. Not yet anyway!

    I think he is only in his skating ability. He certainly doesn't have the same shot accuracy. Which I think is the reason Krug is such an asset. Something the B's have been missing since Bourque was back there.

    Good for Wojciehowitz.  He was my favorite character on Barney Miller, but he hasn't much work lately.

    Kel,

    Great breakdown.  The thing that sticks out there is that he's suspect on defense.

    McQuaid certainly isn't and Miller, outside of high pressure bobbles that lead to crushing goals against in huge games, is on his way to being solid also.

    If this guy has an issue with puck battles at the levels you've seen him at, how's he going to do against the best in the world?

    Re: Warsofskee signed

    Whores-on-skis looks like he could be a good NHLer and fairly soon. I agree with kel's assessment on the kid's development but I feel like he's not quite ready for prime time just yet. He's one of the guys that I'm interested in seeing where he's at this pre-season.

    So I was away in Maine for a bit over a week with no internet or cell service for the most part. I get home and check out BDC and find I missed....absolutely nothing.  I'm starting to look for Bruins in 2 on NESN, recording them and watching it when I can and pretending I don't remember how the game went originally. The season can't start soon enough!

     And this is why he got a one year $600k two way contract. This is how PC values him for the moment.

    Curiously, though, jm...he also called the guy "NHL calibre" at one point.  From nothing more than reading tea leaves, I would have thought Trotman was ahead of him on the depth chart, but he didn't get the same endorsement.  Then again, the tea leaves last year would have told you that Miller was the least likely of the three to end up playing 40+ games in Boston.

    I wouldn't read anything into the contract other than that Wojciehowicz hasn't proven anything yet.  And he's no Ute.

    True. Miller, however did make the team out of camp. I guess we will see how this camp unfolds in a few months.

    The simple fact that Whoresoftee posesses a similar skillset and size to Kroog makes him...

    A. an injury replacement

    B. trade bait.

    What did the B's miss in the playoffs last year?? Another big bodied defensive presence in front of the net and in the corners. You can carry one undersized "PMD" on a team, not two.

    thus McQwade or Millar > Whoresoftee

    In my opinion he has improved this aspect of his game. Still not as good as McQuaid, and at his size he may never be. I'm totally guessing here but I'd say the improvements are due to positioning and working on his upper body strength. If he continues to improve this part of his game, where he closes the gap between him and the other bubble guys I think his ability with the puck gives him an edge over them.

    In my view you don't always have to be 6 foot something to be effective in the corners or on front of the net. A smaller defenseman with strong skating ability and good positioning can be very effective. They learn how to use their lack of size as an advantage. Will he be able to do this? I don't know, but his work in his own zone has come a long way since as recent as a year ago. He also has some pretty good resources in Sweeney, Bourque and even Krug to lean on.
