McIver (Not that young anymore)

One of these guys will most likely make the big squad, probably Kampfer. Still leaves 8 D-men and Free Agency hasn't even begun yet.

This is the most talented group for Providence in a long time, although not a lot of overall experience there with the three rookies.

Bodnarchuk has to be considered an AHL veteran at this point. Perhaps they qualified him thinking that someone on the list won't make the P-Bruins roster.

Defensemen who were not qualified:

Wild
Valabik
McKelvie

Anyone surprised by these moves? What do think of the group?
