Playoffs 28 skater limit

Initial Creation Date: May 27, 2020
Published: Jul 12, 2020 at 9:45
Team: 2019-20 Boston Bruins
Team Explanation
Which skater(s) do you want to cut? Why?
Me, Blidh because I just don't see an NHL player when he's on the ice. Likes to hit but seems too slow and has no hands. Might be more suitable for playoff hockey.

Which skater will get cut? Why?
Me, Senyshen because he seems least utilized while Cassidy was in Providence so he'll be trusted less. Has the raw tools and I'd want him on. Waiver eligibility next year.

Assuming it's two F, I would cut Carey first. He's great but a great AHLer.

Then, not sure who's the second one. We know what Kuhlman can bring, Studnicka is guaranteed, then you have Blidh who's an okay 4th liner but he may be one guy I would cut. Thought that they were going to place him on waivers when he was activated from SOIR in January but he stayed up so Cassidy probably likes him. Senyshyn can play well defensively and has some offensive upside so I would keep him. Frederic brings grit.

Legace. Cause if the Bs get to that point i’d rather see Marchand or Cheevers in goal. Sorry Legace fans 😇😁.

They only need to cut one skater and I can't see it being a D. I would cut Blidh, Carey and Kuhlman before Senyshen, he just brings more.

Carey has been the Providence captain and the most veteran. Cassidy knows him and when he's played up the gave him second or third line opportunities kind of like Cameron Hughes. They might reward him for his efforts kind of the reason why Blidh is there. They've been good soldiers and put in the time and effort, just not seeing the desired results.

I don't see what Kuhlman brings that Senyshen doesn't. He's small, his hits aren't inspiring nor do they seem to wear anyone down and doesn't have good hands. He has speed and energy for days. Just seems like a poor version of Wagner and I like Wagner's contributions.

31-man roster so assuming they bring 4 G, need to cut two F/D.
Kuhlman has more experience which give him the edge. Long-term, agreed Senyshyn will probably be better and a produces more offensively, but not now. Let's see how he does at camp next year because he is waivers eligible.

I wasn’t assuming 4 goalies. I had envisioned the better of Vladar and Legace in camp will get in. Camp just runs better with 4 goalies.

Camp will be interesting for next season with what to do with guys like Zboril and Senyshen who require waivers. A guy like Studnicka who should probably be there but doesn't need waivers and needs to bulk up.

If Krug is back there are some tough decisions on D.
