Heading into this week's expansion draft it appears the Bruins will lose either Colin Miller or Adam McQuaid.

It has been pretty much the speculation all along but given that Boston made no trades and did not get Zdeno Chara to waive his no movement clause, it seems to be close to certain that Vegas will choose either Miller or McQuaid. The Bruins can afford to take that hit given the development of Charlie McAvoy.

Colin Miller may be the most likely member of the Bruins to be drafted by the expansion Vegas Golden Knights on June 21st.

The Bruins seem to be leaning towards protecting seven forwards, three defensemen and Tuukka Rask. There isn't much value in a few of the Boston forwards who will be left unprotected (Matt Belseky and Kevin Hayes) so it is more likely Vegas will go after Miller or Adam McQuaid to bolster its blueline. Of course, Vegas could try something completely different and select goalie Malcolm Subban from the Bruins. No NHL team can lose more than one player in the expansion draft.

Colin Miller recorded his first career playoff point in Boston's 3-2 overtime loss to Ottawa in Game 6 on Sunday.

Miller assisted on Patrice Bergeron's game-tying goal in the third period that led to the overtime period. Miller was used sparingly in the playoff series as he averaged 15:33 minutes per contest. The Bruins were eliminated by Ottawa, but this series should prove to be a positive experience for the 24-year-old defenseman.

Colin Miller logged 13:27 of ice time in his return to the lineup on Wednesday night from a knee injury.

His first appearance since Game 1 against Ottawa knocked Tommy Cross to the press box. The Bruins may have gotten Miller back, but the back end is still hurting with Torey Krug, Adam McQuaid and Brandon Carlo on the sidelines.

Colin Miller (lower body) will probably return to the Bruins' lineup on Wednesday.

Miller declared himself ready to play and Boston coach Bruce Cassidy acknowledged that the plan is for Miller to return. However, Cassidy also said that the final decision would be made at game time, so there's no 100% certainty. If he does return though, Miller is projected to play alongside John-Michael Liles.

Colin Miller (lower body) is getting better and could be ready to play Wednesday in Game 4 against Ottawa.
