Welcome back to the bottom pairing with Ference, not a bad bottom 2, McQuaid is steady and a little under-rated in my books.

McQuaid has that rare ability to push all the air out of your lungs when lining you up from merely 5 feet.

There are so many unsung heroes from the Cup run, but McQuaid is on the top of my list. Did he ever wear down forwards by inducing good clean pain.

Great news.

Looking forward to seeing that 'Quaider smile--the one that opponents should not be looking forward to seeing since it comes just before his switch is flipped and he destroys someone

So..

Chara - Hamilton
Seidenberg - Boychuk
Ference - McQuaid

Looks much, much better with McQuaid in.

Everything looks to be shaping up for the Bruins!

Only question, if it even is a question, is how will Rask handle his number 1 job (Even though he's already proven he can handle it!!)

VERY good news.

Us Bruins fans are so fortunate to have a cat like Quaider on the team. His game just fits what I love about my B's.

That Ehrhoff turtle job will always be one of my SCF highlights.

I value him for his steady presence and solid performance night in and night out, but just out of curiousity - does anybody think his condition will affect his fighting and how often he drops them?

I hope that he doesn't give in to his natural urges and immediately go out and take on some tough guy just to prove he is up to the task. Hopefully CJ tells him to stick to his basic, simple style of play, eithe take the guy out at the blueline or move the guy away from the centre of the ice and then get out of the way so Tuukka can see (and stop) the shot! As others have noted Mcquaid is a highly under rated player. As folks will recall, our play off history shows that when he is out of the line up we lose!
Take care and take it easy at first Adam, I'm glad to have you back.

That was very funny.

I like Adam. He has such a sweet face but is a tough kid.
