McQuaid, 28, is coming off a three-year deal with an AAV of $1,566,666. McQuaid has posted a negative relative Corsi every year of the six years he’s played in the NHL, including a -3.1% CF%Rel last season, which was the worst among Bruins defensemen this side of Kevan Miller and Dennis Seidenberg.

Through 63 games last season he had one goal and six assists.

In the Bruins trade earlier in the day the team acquired three draft picks — a first and two seconds — from the Flames.
