Yeah, he tied Chara for best on the team in pull-ups. Miller's not that big, but he is absolutely chiseled. Must live in the gym when he's not on the ice.

Miller/McQuaid would be a tremendous pair on D. To hell with mobility. They're both smart enough and responsible enough. I'd love to see that.

Easy win here for Miller. Plays a lot bigger than 210.

So this is why Smith doesn't fight much recently. Just terrible.

Win Miller

Edwards might be a homer, but he definitely likes fights and rough stuff and he is not afraid to say it and criticize (lightly) what the ref's and the league are sometimes calling to prevent fighting and rough stuff.

I thought the other feed was kind of bland. No real emotion involved at all. At least Edwards is into it. "Smith's the nail, Miller's the hammer!" haha. You have to love his enthusiasm. I know he's a homer but some of the people on here go overboard with him. I think it's just another way to dump on the Bruins when there is nothing else to whine about. I love that he's pro fighting and likes a good scrap. He can be over the top-but he's 10 times better than some of the hacks I've come across from other teams-that almost never get the treatment Edwards gets on here. Some of the stuff he says is hilarious.

Miller took Smith out back to the woodshed, dropped his britches, and beat his ass with the leather strap. A total one sided beatdown. Smith should have searched out Campbell instead. Like Miller, just hope it doesn't mean McQuaids days in Boston are limited.

Easy win Miller.

I don't mind Edwards' reaction when the fight is one-sided like that. It's the close fights (Rechlicz vs Lucic for example) that he calls one-sided that annoy me. Or the putting down of opposing players, basically calling them worthless (Rosehill vs Lucic, Z.Smith vs Horton).

Tough one to call. I couldn't tell for sure whether Miller was feeding Smith rapid-fire knuckles or Smith was intentionally attempting to take out Miller's fist by face-butting his knuckles. (The latter can be a very effective tactic when your opponent is handicapped by a shield on his bucket, but you are free to use the lumpy contours of your unshielded face to grind down and incapacitate your opponent's fists.) It looked to me like Smith was coming back strongly. Another 20 seconds and I believe Smith would have rendered Miller's fist unusable and taken this bout.


Dominating edge -- Miller.

Miller steam rolls Smith with an impressive, dominating and flurry of punches that scores the TKO win.

Solid win for Kevan Miller in his 2nd NHL fight.

I'm impressed by that Miller kid... I hadn't heard of him before the Brown fight. Seems more comfortable with the mitts off than most guys from the US College system. With McQuaid out he appears to be a decent replacement, and he will only get better with more experience.

Win Miller

That rumor has been floating around for a few weeks. I hope it's just a few "experts" inventing something to talk about. Money-wise, Boychuk seems more likely to go bc he makes more and could command something by way of trade. Any of the above seems nuts to me, but if they come up against it money-wise, they might move someone from the blue line. Bartkowski and Krug might be up for a raise in the near future.

If its up to me, Barts trade bait. I know Chiarelli wants to add experiance on the blue line, a left hand shot to replace Seidenburg. Bartowski's been good, but to me, he's the most exlendable. Miller needs to stay. And he needs a real jersey #. 86 is an NFL WR's number. Give him Jays old number,#29. He's a keeper.
