Next year, if Button, and possibly Knight or Spooner joined the talent already in PRO (along with guys like Cunningham and Randell), they would have a decent base.

Unfortunately Knight and Spooner will have to return to junior hockey if they don't make the Boston roster. They were both born in January 1992 and will be too young for the AHL next year.

Forwards
Cunningham and Randell could have a shot at playing in Providence. That's it for the forward prospects unless the Bruins find other players in the trade market.

Defense
Ryan Button and Colby Cohen could be good additions on defense. Perhaps David Warsofsky or Tommy Cross will leave college early and play in Providence.

Ironically, after a whole lot of concern about the glut of forwards and lack of defensemen in the prospect ranks, the defense in Providence next season could end up better than the forwards.

Goaltenders
Unless one of Hutchinson, Dalton, etc. has a breakthrough, or a trade brings a good prospect in, the goaltending could still be a problem.
