I think there is a lot of seasoning amonst our rookies. Josi has been playing in the Swiss pro league for a a few years now and would have been on the Swiss olympic team if not for an injury. Geoffrion, Thang, and Flynn played 4 years of college w/ Geoffrion winning the Hobey Baker award. Klasen has been playing in the SEL and is like 25 or 26 yrs. old.

I think Austin Watson was the only player we had playing from the 2010 draft.
Ellis, Roussel,Beck, Latta, and Bourque are all from the 2009 draft.
Ah thanks. Right after I posted that one of our beat writers put up an article. One thing he mentioned was that some of your rookies have played together in development camps for 3 years.

But you guys have one hell of a team. Blum will be very fun to watch if he makes the NHL squad this year.
