That is exactly what needs to happen if Bulmer wants to devleop into an agitating bottom six forward. I don't think many of us REALLY expected him to be a top six forward, but if he can be a physical, agitating staple third liner, I will be happy to have spent that 2nd round pick on him.

Not arguing your point at all. A lot of our prospects were not put into good environments to develop.

Just wanted to say that I do not believe another year of juniors or anything would have made the outcome for Gillies any better. I simply believe he has very little hockey awareness and some of the worst hands I have seen.
