Julien just always seems to be able to get the best out of his D.

you do make a very valid point about julien - his system gives you the ability to cover up some lesser players...but with regards to individuals ready for primetime, i don't see much in providence. krug could possibly turn into a bottom pairing puck mover. bartkowski i never saw the excitement with his game. warsofsky is explosive but i don't think he'll ever be able to play defense against NHL bodies. trotman seems intriguing from what i've seen/heard...but not yet.

i guess the guy who'll end up in boston is aaron johnson. he's a tweener but has played enough NHL games to be able to hang. i figured hamilton would make the team and they'd scratch AJ most of the him in when injuries or dougie's learning curve shows up.
