My view is that the Bruins have enough skill guys, and should be able to produce enough offense, to "carry" a guy like MacDermid. He should have to earn a job, just like Bourque or Spooner or Caron (when healty) or Pandolfo. But if he's a viable option, he would give them other attributes that could be useful to this team. If one of the other kids is a hustle machine who looks confident and like he might chip in offense, fair enough. But MacDermid should be part of the conversation.
