And as Pierre Maquire just labeled him "Patrice Bergeron" funny how good guys are when you don't watch them play!

They've been comparing him to Bergeron since the day he was drafted.

Didn't get to see too much of the game today, but from what I could tell on the radio, JFK didn't see much ice time in the first two periods but was pretty involved in the third.

Now, with Krug and Carlo out, everyone's talking about bringing McAvoy in. Why not Grzelcyk?

This is from an article on ESPN:

If the Bruins need reinforcements, they could recall Matt Grzelcyk or Tommy Cross from Providence of the AHL. The Bruins have until 5 p.m. Sunday to add Charlie McAvoy to the roster for the playoffs. However, if he signs an entry-level contract and plays, he will burn a year of eligibility on his contract, and it's unlikely the Bruins will take that chance and allow the former first-round pick (No. 14 overall) out of Boston University to reach free agency early.

Grzelcyk is much more ready than McAvoy. He not as big or as powerful a skater, but his instincts are much better, he moves the puck just as well, and he won't make the glaring errors that McAvoy has been prone to do, due to his inexperience.

McAvoy has singed his ELC. Looks like the brass felt he was the best option from Providence to help with the injuries to Krug and Carlo.

Also saw a tweet that Eichel missed out on a $2m bonus by missing being in the Top 10 for PPG, by .01. Going scoreless in the last 2 games didn't help. But boy that is tough!

Any Idea what the OOC schedule will look like next year ? going by the last couple of years - Seems like the Denver and Michigan trips this year were return trips for home games in 2015-16, as were the home games versus Harvard/Yale and QPAC .

Besides Cornell @ MSG , any idea what the OOC opponents will be... H VS Colgate ? @ Sacred Heart ?

Denver comes here for one, we don't play at Sacred Heart, we go to QU, I heard over the weekend in Chicago Mankato comes here for two (we're there in 18-19) and there's either two games @ASU or we're playing in the Desert Hockey Classic out there. There was talk in the schedules thread of a BU-Penn State series, but I haven't heard that elsewhere. The games above plus RHH and Beanpot total nine.

I heard @ Union is the 10th non-conference game. Open the regular season there.

Any idea when Denver is slated to come in? Trying to travel more this season to see new teams, never saw Denver play before and it would be worth a quick train ride north.

No idea, but all games between DU and BU and BC during this deal between the schools have been in October.

Well, incredibly, Charlie's first game as a Bruin will be in the PLAYOFFS. This could go either way. Hopefully it won't set him back. Quite a challenge, for sure!

I can't believe the Bruins don't have more depth then that in their system. Grycz is much better, Cross is better. Huge mistake if they suit him up.

Yeah, I caught that too. Joe had goal totals of 14, 21, and 28 through 3 seasons. I always wonder what that 90-91 team would have looked like with him back for his Senior year. Maybe that title game gets settled in regulation for the good guys. :D

We hadn't had true NHL talent in some time, he was the first to bolt early that had a legit shot.

Actually, I think Ron Anderson, Ric Jordan and Bob Brown were the first BU players to relinquish eligibility and leave for the pros. Anderson to the Capitals, Brown and Jordan to the first year WHA. Their departures followed the 1971-72 season.

If you're an NHL team, why would you possibly target Quinn over Bazin?

Quinn has AHL and NHL coaching experience for one.

Followed by Mike Fidler and Bob Sunderland. Didn't Vic Stanfield leave early too

That may be, but according to Felger (98.5 The Sports Hub, not the "Felger" on the UNH thread), he is not only starting, but they are pairing him with CHARA!! That means the most minutes on the ice. I can see his point, though. If you're going to burn a year (they could have just left him in Providence and got him for three years), you're not going to play him seven minutes a game. If it doesn't work out, you drop him down to the third pair. Might as well see what he can do.

And I'm not sure I agree that Gryz is "much better." Or, let's put it this way. I think Charlie has a greater "upside." And, let's face it, that's what they go by. You get your chance and either you impress or you don't. I'm afraid Gryz may be down there for a long time if Charlie turns out to be good.
