Idk, I just think Redmond might be able to handle himself. He played 4 years in college and a year and a half in the AHL. Idk if the Bruins are the right team to get his feet wet, but I think he gets a shot soon enough.

Idk if he meant that for the size, but more for the fact that he has a vendetta against Thor haha kidding. If so then I guess Jet didn't look at their sizes. lol It might be under the theory that Peluso is more skilled but who knows at this point. How either him or Wright would do at this point is all a guess. We know what Thor can bring, his good and bad games. The other guys are unknown how they'll do for us.

The problem is where to stick Scheifele. Right now he's stuck on the 4th so it's giving us an odd looking 4th line, and while he needs more then 4th line minutes, you can't give him too many minutes if he's not ready for a heavy load. Honestly though, I wouldn't be upset if we swapped Kane for Scheif on the PP if you want to try and make use of some of his playmaking.

Agree w/almost all of this. Thorburn is more player than fighter. He's a physical, high energy guy and if, for instance, we put him on waivers, he would be snapped up at once.

And all Ok if the doubters don't want Thorburn and Peluso etc to play, but then why have we gone the routed of bigger, physical type players and passed up skilled Euros etc. Why did we have Rypien and then Glass? Have we changed in essence since then?

BTW, Neil took liberties Saturday.

Are we going to be the big bad Bruins or the finesse Red Wings?
