Kase Is a top six forward when healthy and quite skilled, As for me I'm a Wild fan. Someone said on here recently that I was afraid to reveal my team, Not sure why that was said.

Well then why did you not type in Wild for your team on your account?

And... you really are clueless.

Let me get this straight. Bruins playing a meaningful game and Kase, who wants to prove something, decides...my conditioning isn't up to snuff so I can't finish the game. Everything that needs to be proven is taken care of right there. He doesn't deserve any more ice time in a Bruins sweater.

Yes Hall said he was lacking confidence BLAH BLAH BLAH, But these guys do multiple interviews a day and they aren't going to say the truth. What was Hall going to say? As much as I like Ralph Krueger he sucks as a coach, Buffalo ownership Is toxic, And Eichel Isn't a very good teammate. Hall lost confidence. What a joke, Don't drink the koolaid, You are really slow If you believe what these guys say In Interviews most of them talk fast and say what we want to hear and can't wait to RIP off the headset. Wise the freak up! Lost his confidence what crap. Lol.

I hope Pasternak is able to play after that savage brush by Leo. Just him finishing the game was a profile in courage. The sacrifice will be an example to young players everywhere.

I see the Bruins gave the Providence team some ice-time. None of our top-10 players were skating.

Feeling a little more confident about the series after seeing our AHL team make it within a second of going to OT.

So for expansion draft - does every team have to expose a goalie that played in the NHL?

What do bruins do? Their two main goalies wont be under contract.
And the other goalies have not played enough games...

I expect the Bruins signing Rask.
Since Swayman is backing up Rask in the playoffs, you can say “Adios” to Halak.

Halak won't be available to Seattle from Bruins though, since his contract will be up.

Do Bruins need to sign another free-agent before the expansion draft with the understanding that player will be exposed?

This made me LOL.

Bruins had about 3 regulars in the line up last night. This kid might be the worst trash talker of all time.

I believe Halak will count as a Goalie exposed by the Bruins. so not much to worry about. They would be able to take him even if he is a UFA.. so i don't think they need to do anything out of the ordinary to become expansion compliant. Seattle is able to claim UFAs but obviously that player is not forced to sign with them... I could be totally wrong but that is how i read it.


So essentially when it comes to Taylor Hall. The Bruins will probably have a wink wink deal done but not sign him before the expansion draft. Same goes for Krejci.

Seattle can try to take either one as a UFA but then they need to be able to sign them.

I thought exposed players had to be under contract. But I'm not 100% sure.

According to NHL.com the goalie must be under contract OR a RFA. Halak would not meet the requirement.

Ok Boys. So what to Expect from the Caps. Hard borderline hitting. Some cheap shots some good solid hitting. ONLY thing that concerns me is the 1st D pair. Gryz is too small. He’s going to get hurt early. I hope Cassidy switches that pair. That’s all.
Other than that I say Bs in 6

Im not that worried, Bruins played them tight all year, and are a better team than they were in the majority of the games they played. Bruins D is much better, Caps Offense was a little better on the top end, but now I'd say top to bottom they more evenly matched. As long as they stay out of the box, Bruins should be fine.

I actually prefer McAvoy/Lauzon pairing...Gryz back with Carlo and Reilly with Miller..
