The Sox are already trying to stir things up at the vacant managerial position by inserting Shane Hnidy... the sheriff.



Also, thank you PC. Hopefully we don't see Bart back in a spoked-B this season.

That was me, and I put a sarcasm smiley, but I would take him for depth at short money, if he's in shape and agrees to be #7. He can't be worse than Bartkowski was. Bart clearly needs more time in the A.

I liked what I saw from Stevie K last season, lets hope he can add up to that and deliver a strong game tonite. We need him to

What about pulling Craig Rivet out of the ECHL and giving him a $500,000 contract to be a #7?

EDIT: Oh yeah. Because it's Craig Rivet.

unless you want to put Bob Beers in as your depth D-Man, instead of being your radio analyst alongside Goucher, Cross, Hnidy's return is as equivalent to tht infamous Rick Pitino quote when he was w/ the Celtics:

"Larry Bird is not walking through tht door, Robert Parish is not walking through tht door, Kevin McHale is not walking through tht door" or in this case skating through tht door.

Lol. On 98.5 someone called in and said the only way to fix the Red Sox was to insert Sheriff Shane Hnidy ito the lineup. Thats why it was said here in the thread.

Actually, I think it started after Game 2 of the SCF. Some guy genuinely wanted Hnidy to stir the pot. Since then its gained a life of its own.

I think PC is waiting to see what Kamper can do. If he can't cut it look
for McCabe to be signed by the Bruins. Its seems there not to many
Dmen available right now.

I hope you are right here Bill. I still have concerns about Kampfer.

Bartkowski is needed in Providence.

Can McCabe still play a decent game? I haven't heard much about him lately and the fact that nobody has picked him up is concerning.

He certainly has the size, skill, snarl and experience that could help the Bruins if he has anything left.

He's certainly no great shakes, but if he would rather take short money than rot on the trash heap, he'd certainly be an upgrade over the Bartman. I think people are gunshy over him more because he didn't play anywhere near his cap hit than anything else. Get him in at $1m or less and see if the dog can still hunt? I dunno.

I'm just not sure what other options are out there. I don't exactly see us swinging a deal for Yandle or Suter any time soon.

And, Bart, plain and simple is a still young defenseman who needs time to develop, hardly a bust
This.

I thought maybe Bart was ready to take the step, but it became even more apparent than it already was (after watching Kampf last night) that he needs to spend some more time in the A.

I still think the kid can make it in the NHL, but he needs to refine/improve his game. I think I put too much stock in his preseason performances the last two years?

It happens.

It sure does, just as I put too much stock in being completely unimpressed by a larger sample size with Marchand a few years back. I thought he looked lost, thought he had no clue how to play the NHL game. I don`t need to tell you how full I was with the buffet`s worth of crow I ate last year

I don`t know your age Glory, something tells me your not 19 based on your many posts and references to names/times gone by, but for some of our younger fans here, there was a time when a prospect/pick was actually expected to be a 3-5 year project and they were treated as such. Nowadays, seems that some deem a player a bust if they can`t challenge for Rook of the year or the scoring title after year 2

To look at local examples, both McQuaid and Boychuk spent significant time in the AHL before cracking the Bruins lineup. With young defensemen, that's more the norm than the exception; IMHO some people tend to think someone's a bust if he struggles at this level. Kids like Bartkowski are going to take a while.

except for one bad giveaway in our own end, Kampfer was excellent tonight. Kid moves the puck fast and effectively. His skating speed is refreshing to see in the back end

I personally like Kampfer better than Boychuck.

Kampfer though seems injury prone thus far in his short career

If by this you meant that we could have called up a d-man that would have been as equally unimpressive as Bartkowski was...I agree.

I had high hopes for Yuri, but I saw him a fair amount in PRO, and did not see much. Hopefully, he improves and comes back for another try.

Unfortunately, I am 45 , old enough to remember the days when 18 and 19 year olds that made it were much rarer. Also, it has always seemed to take longer for the d-men to mature and find their game. Even a guy like Chara is an example of that.

Haha, ya got me by 4 years, and I remember those days too, it was the rarity when a kid made the step right into the league. I recently heard when the discussion of raising the draft age to 19 was being discussed, that less than 6% of 18 year olds play even the 10 game stint they are allowed before a decision is made.

I am all for slow and calculated dev`p of a kid, especially when a team is in the position to do so such as the Bruins are.
