<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Klara</b></div><div>You are misreading the card, 2% finishing isn't shooting percentage, all of the numbers are percentiles among the league, my point is that Boston fans believing he is a good prospect, when he really isn't and hasn't proven at any level that he could be.

Being 1st in shots in the AHL with no goals isn't some grand feature.
.63p/gp isn't close to a point per game.

If he ends up as a 3rd line winger next year, that's a big success.

<img class="for_img" src="" alt="Krejci.PNG"></div></div>

Maybe I wasn't clear. In the AHL he 49pts in 60games or .81ppg. What I am saying is this only appears to account for his NHL time. Which if you watched was sporadic at best. I wasn't saying his shooting % was 2%. What I was telling you was his finishing would be higher if it took his 19-20 AHL season. Almost assuredly his defense would be higher too. TOI as well as he was the #1 center in providence.

Again, this is where analytics fail a little. The Bruins tend to take their time with guys. They view him as a middle six Center. There was no room there. They would rather play in him providence as a 1c then spot him on wing or 4c. Also, I as mentioned if he really did put on some muscle, I could easily see a 15/35 Season from him as a 2C with Smith and Hall. He is already very defensively responsible which bodes well and he has produced offensively at every level.

Like I said, it looks like we will see. If not Beecher or Lysell don't seem too far away. Haula also put up 29g and 55pts as vegas' 2nd line center two years ago. I think a healthy Coyle has a bit more too. If they decide to use him as 2C, I could see him working well with Hall - a similar chemistry to when Johansen was here.

Coyle had his worst season last year and I have to believe it's injury related. I can't imagine either are fun to play through "Charlie Coyle recently underwent surgery to repair multiple knee injuries. ... Coyle's surgery was to repair an “avulsion fracture” in his left kneecap and a small tear in his patellar tendon".

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Heyhowareya37</b></div><div>first off, i said i was hoping for another plan (b/c i considered no competent GM would pay him that) also correct me if im wrong, but cant Kase just sign the qualifying offer? Or do you only use the tender agreement to keep as an RFA. Because i coulda sworn you could just sign your qualifying offer if you wanted. Also he's not worth twice that when healthy. 5.2 million dollars for a guy who has a career high 38 points (if that was what you meant) Im just not there with ritchie, more of a matter of opinion. don't think he touches the game in enough areas, too many nights where you dont notice him.</div></div>

Yes, he could sign the QO for 2.6m but it's a two way deal, so they can bury him with effectively no real penalty.

a healthy Kase is a 5m player. His issue is health. He is elite defensively and despite all his injuries is still a .5ppg player. Danault and Hyman are about to get paid 6M+ on long term deals. Danualt a little different because he is a center, but his possession numbers are off the charts. Most of which was done playing with Garbage in Anaheim. I believe Ritchie was his line mate.

His last two years have been a disaster due to injuries (shoulder and head) . I know I am picking an choosing, but if you remove his rookie year and take his healthy stretch 17-18 &amp; 18-19 - he a 50pt player with 26 goals (as a 22 and 23 year old)

He is 100% injury prone, but it's high reward, low risk move.

Again, another big if, but IF he had stayed healthy he is effectively slightly better than Debrusk offensively and substantially better than Debrusk Defensively. Debrusk is making just shy of 4m and would have been due a raise if he kept doing what he was doing in 18-19.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>CMcAvoy73</b></div><div>Martinez, oleksiak, murray, maybe even koekkoek. Point is, bruins need a more defensively sound option. You may have noticed that the second carlo went down they were lost. Dunn is the polar opposite of what they need. Best case scenario, go after lindholm.</div></div>

Not sure I want to build a team around injuries. I don't really want any part of Martinez. Likely his last deal. He is getting old, he will cost too much
Oleksiak is interesting, but I he might get a decent payday and I am not sure he really helps.

Yes, they fell apart when Carlo got hurt, but that is because Lauzon was hurt and had a broken hand and was already slotted higher than he should have been. Gryzelcyk is really ineffective on D in the playoffs. Good puck mover. Clifton was exposed for being a 3rd pairing 7th dman getting too much ice time. Zboril was hurt? scratched? no idea. Tinordi was cut from Nashville, Miller was injured again too.

Point being... It isn't that they need a defensive dman. They needed NHL Dmen. They had two by the final game. 2.5 if you want to count Lauzon, who had the hand thing, and certainly not really anyone outside 73 and 48 that you wanted getting any serious ice time. Yes, it was when Carlo went down, but they were also onto their 8th or 9th dman on top of starting the season with 2-3 unknowns to begin with. Tinordi who is a defensive dman had 12m in game 6.

Murray is perfect, but will only play 22 games. koekkoek - no thanks, or maybe for league min. He is a 7th dman.

I know Dunn has been protected, but he is a Possesion monster in regular season and playoffs. He would help. substantially. He is better than you are giving him credit for and only 24
