It`s a heckuva luxury to have a kid that skilled learn and develop without the immense pressure and downer of playing for a lousy team.

Coaching staff as well deserve a ton of credit
That is a good point, and I think it speaks to the type of organization the Bruins have become.

They have established a young, core group that they are going to build around going forward, have a proven coaching staff and system, and their locker room is top notch, all perfect conditions for young up-and-coming players.

The Bruins do not have to rush any of their prospects, instead they have the luxury of developing them at their pace, and then bringing guys into a low-pressure situation where they can play and be mentored at the NHL level.

It reminds me of the way Detroit has done business now for a lot of years, and I think it's an approach that can make for a long run of success.
