Players like Lucic, Bergeron and Seguin have spoiled this fanbase
. I have the same expectations of guys like Spooner, Knight and Koko - they will (and should) spend significant time in the AHL before they crack the Bruins lineup.
As for first round, second round, seventh round - the only time it matters is during the draft itself. I don't care if a guy was picked 25th overall or found playing roller hockey in front of the GM's house. It's a way of ranking players that has no relevance once they're in the system, expect to complain about them not living up to expectations. It's like graduating from Havard rather than UMass. Great on the resume, but once you're on the job, who cares?
Good Lord....Really? Hate to break the news but every team has picks like that...Plus Chiarelli has only picked one of those guys and a chimp could have done that...
Again, I have no problem if you want to keep Caron in the minors...you might want to tell that to Chiarelli though...
“We want to leave some flexibility, space and that’s not cap space or anything, it’s just I call it development space for Caron to kind of blossom and grow a little bit more as a player,” Chiarelli said. “That does this. Now if we add a player down the line the rest of the summer, we still feel had we kept (Pouliot) and added another player, it really would’ve boxed out Caron so that’s reason one.”
“If he can do something that, just from a pure number perspective,
if he can get what Ben got I would be happy
,” Chiarelli said. “He’s a bigger body. He’s come on towards the end of last year. He’s put some time in the minors. He knows what’s important in his game and what he has to focus on. So you know it’s about the latter stages of development for Jordan and he really knows what we want him to work on and he started doing that. So you see that promise, you see that development, and you know he’s a younger guy and you have to give him a chance.”
