Hey, check your PMs, kiddo. You're bunged, as my hubby would say. :)

Camara with 1 goal tonight
Hamilton goose eggs
Payne goose eggs
Griffith 1 goal 1 assist

Just throwing this out there, as I'm not sure it's been discussed to this point.

Other than Hamilton, is anyone else concerned about the relative lack of size of our prospect pool?

Anthony Camara - 6-0, 195
Carter Camper - 5-9, 176
Seth Griffith - 5-11, 185
Alex Khokhlachev - 5-10, 183
Jared Knight - 5-11, 186
Ryan Spooner - 5-10, 180
Matt Grzelczyk - 5-9, 171
Torrey Krug - 5-9, 180
Dave Warsofsky - 5-9, 170

That's most of our higher-end prospect pool right there.

I noticed that too when watching the camper-bourque-tardif line last night. all of those guys are around 5-9ish. I don't think its a problem for the bruins since the parent club as it stands is so big. chara, mcquaid, lucic, bergeron, horton are all over 6 feet and are physical players in their own right. I wouldn't think the team expects grzelcyk krug and warsofsky to all be on the bruins in uniform at the same time, probably even 2 of the 3. when it comes to forwards size isn't as much of an issue as long as they aren't gaudreau small or grimaldi small (5-6). though I don't see much oppurtunity for camper to be a regular or seth griffith. knight might not be tall but he is a physical winger, as is camara. from where i am looking only khoklachev and spooner are small forwards with top 6 potential and every team can afford a few less physical players. (see: david krecji, tyler seguin)

some notable prospects that do have size that were not mentioned are brian ferlin (6-2) and rob o gara (6-3). o gara i see as the future replacement of adam mcquaid to be a physical shut down D on the 3rd pairing and ferlin has a very wide spectrum to what his future holds. 3rd line power winger or never getting a look at the pros. i wouldn't be surprised if krug gets a shot with the big club in 2013 and then when grzelcyk is ready they shop krug for picks, prospects, or players. I just can't see them carrying more then one defensemen under 6-0, let alone under 5-10.

Kegs 11-19-2012 09:35 AM

In regards to the small players.

I personally think PC is looking for help on the power play. These small players tend to lean towards the smart playmaker mentality. A nice puck moving defenceman and an extremely creative playmaker may fix the bruins disgusting power play. They still haven't found their Marc savard :(.

I can't actually comment on their prospects because I've not had much chance to watch them. I saw subban and Hamilton play a couple times. And koko. They seem okay. Subban and Hamilton seem to be their best prospects. Maybe spooner. But I only saw a glimpse of spooner at training camp. Sauve looks promising too. Saw him at a training camp. But he clearly has health issues. Maybe spooner can fix the pp? I dunno though I never got to see him play maybe I'll try and watch some baby bruins games this year. I kinda want to watch Swiss league. I like the game their and some great NHL players went there

Haven't heard much said about Chudinov... His point production has slipped from last year. How has he looked?

It`s not the size of the lion but rather the size of his/her heart;)

Sorry, couldn`t resist a way too oft overused cliche to answer your question.

I`m not too worried about it in all seriousness, while those mentioned above aren`t big, chances of them ever being on the ice, as Boston Bruins at the same time is years away and unlikely if all even sniff an NHL roster spot for a few.

Another goal for Söderberg tonight, his 17th in 23 games.

it's something i've definitely noticed. I'm not concerned about it but it would be nice to see them draft some more size next draft. not a huge concern for me though.

Hamilton, Cross (yea, i still have faith in him), Brian Ferlin, Jordan Caron (still kinda a prospect) and Cody Payne are all guys with size that i think could be NHL players. even Camara i don't consider small. would be nice to add a top forward prospect with some size still

Kerby Rychel, Ryan Kujawinski, Jason Dickinson and Bo Horvat are all coming out of the OHL this year and fit the bill.

Kirk Luedeke ‏@kluedeke29
Very good source showed me a document from Spartak Moscow about B's prospect Alexander Khokhlachev...

Kirk Luedeke ‏@kluedeke29
In it- says that Koko is "a team member of Spartak Moscow and looking forward to winning a gold medal for Russia" at 2013 WJC...

Kirk Luedeke ‏@kluedeke29
Says "No reason to answer questions that are based on media speculation about future possibilities" citing no contact made w/ them by agent

Kirk Luedeke ‏@kluedeke29
So, looks like Koko will remain in KHL unless things change significantly between now and the end of the WJC tourney.

For those interested, here's a clip of Söderberg's goal last night:

http://www2.lhc.eu/video/1980178344001/

For a guy his size, he's got some pretty decent skating skills.

Thanks for the updates, Schnurvel. Keep them coming. There are many here who would still like to see the Bruins add this talented Swede to the roster.

I understand the exercise and you make good points, but just not sure of some of the examples you are illustrating.

In no way shape or form are Camper and Warsofsky 'high-end' prospects. You could probably extract a few other names from there as well who are closer to 'good' prospects, but those are most glaring.

I saw that and then a certain beat writer who is large and thinks he's in charge tried to pretend he heard the same thing. :shakehead

Best guess...Koko will join the Spits after the World Jrs. In time he will then be traded to a contender.

I'll take skill over size any day of the week. Skating and passing league now and don't see any issues with smaller forwards as long as the D can recover and recoup the puck to set the transition.

There is enough 5 tool players on the team now to play a possession game (a la Marchand) so if the D can get them the puck no problem.
