Morning Free Association: Kevan Miller Sighting!

It’s official, Kevan Miller is back at practice. Yesterday it was reported by multiple Bruins reporters that he’s sporting the some-family-of-red no-contact jersey at practice. Bruce Cassidy said that if all goes well, he could be back in a regular black or white jersey next week.

Of course, we’ve all been talking about what to do when he comes back. Connor Clifton who is technically the last man up from Providence, having earned himself a spot with the big club with his playoff presence last postseason, has only 12 games left to play before he would have to clear waivers to return to Providence. November 26 is the day that he’s projected to lose his waivers exemption. If Miller returns later this month, Clifton would have to stay and perhaps Kampfer would become the odd man out.

John Moore is also due to come back within the next month or two. With cap and roster constraints, the Bruins may have to move one or both of these returning players. Kevan Miller is 31, turning 32 next month, and is in the final year of his current contract. With a logjam at RD, Miller is likely not to be re-signed and could be an asset for another team, if he stays healthy. Moore is more versatile as a left shot that can play either side. Moore is signed for another 3 years after this season.

One thing is for sure: this is a good decision to have to make. With the Bruins being such a defensive beast, it’s good to have too many D instead of too few. Perhaps someone can be bundled for a 2nd line RW?

G’day. They’re stacked at D all right. It’ll be interesting to see what Sweenius decides to do.

It feels like ages since the last game. 14 of them this month though!

Do you guys put your clocks back this weekend or next?

Oh, that’s a shame – I was hoping for another week of it just being a four-hour difference!

Why do we need DST???? It’s not for farmers. They get up at Throwup O’clock everyday, regardless! The saving energy slant…. also bullshit. Clocks for game management, only!!!

Hey All!!!
Only B2B after dark Halloween action for the Jo(e)s!!! We’re too far off the road for anyone to venture back. Scary without adornment!!

So, does Cliffy get sent down while possible? Give Killer a shot to show his (trade) worth??Kampfer can play until KevAn is ready. It’s never a bad thing to stock up on draft picks, either. Keep the pipeline flowing!!!!

Yeah, we’ve got the “too scary for trick-or-treaters” driveway as well. I lived here for 10 years before I felt comfortable walking the driveway after dark without a good flashlight. I put in a lamppost last fall, but it really isn’t enough.
And the rain the past couple of days dumped a massive load of leaves onto it, so one could not recognize that it was actually an in-use driveway.

They close off my road and all the kids in town trick or treat there. One point I just left the door open with the candy out so I could go make dinner. It was funny hearing kids scurry in and out grabbing candy.

Morning all. You can never have too much D. (tee hee.)

Holy wind today batman. I’m going to end up in Munchkin Land! Lots and lots of soggy trick or treaters last night. Stick tap to the kid dressed up as a Vegas Golden Knight. I told him he could take some extra candy. And after seeing a Golden Knights jersey in person, I really really really really really need one.
