The Bruins were forced to make a tough decision this week as they sent Kevan Miller back down to Providence, but in the long run, it was ultimately the right one.

The big defenseman has impressed during his short tenure with the B’s, but Miller is approaching his 10th game with the club, meaning if they tried to send him down later, they would need to put him through waivers.

General manager Peter Chiarelli didn’t want to risk losing him to waivers, so he was forced to send him back to the P-Bruins and recall defenseman David Warsofksy, but Chiarelli acknowledged that he told Miller “next time will be for good.”
