Thanks Grunt. Really good thread already for the P-Bruins. Good content and no junk posts.

I was one of the fans with high expectations last season. I thought they would be really good after a couple of down years and was surprised at the mediocre result. I think it's important that the Boston prospects develop in a winning atmosphere.

The defense prospects have the most talent of any Providence group in a while. I'll be interested to see who makes the team. Will Bodnarchuk and Valabik make it? Will they be able to tighten the overall defense, assuming Boston brings in a good goalie.

The forward group has talent but needs help. Whitfield should come back and transition to a coaching role when he stops playing. They need his experience.

I'm also curious to see if the coaching change alters the culture and the results. Bruce Cassidy certainly has tons of experience. I hope he creates the right atmosphere for developing young guys. Anybody hear who will be on his staff?
