Anyone who's been down have any thoughts on Lehtonen yet?

With all the talk about Marchand, Knackstedt, Hamill, Wheeler, he seems to be the forgotten prospect.

I think thats because hes still the most wet behind the ears. All the others are approaching the cusp, with maybe the exception of Knackstedt whose a little further back.

I didn't really notice him, he was with Hammil and Wheeler out there and they were much more obvious then him.... didn't do anything special, didn't stand out, but didn't look behind or anything. I noticed a few decent passes during the drills, a couple nice glove side wristers that beat Regan. Those are the main things I remember, I was more concentrating on Regan, Hammil and Wheeler however.

I paid attention to him a bit. He can really fly and is long as they say in basketball; not sure about his puck and finishing skills but the size and skating appear NHL now.

I hope a lot of people show up. Be nice to welcome the boys back with a loud "Lets go Bruins!" chant... I promise to be fully liquored up at 930 and prepared to lead the way.

I'll be at Ristuccia tomorrow and the Garden Saturday. I'll have one of my daughters with me Saturday. Most likely I'll have my red Red Sox pullover on and a Bruins cap (most likely on backwards.) Feel free to say hello...it's always fun to meet fellow Hfers.

Just to be clear, the practices at the Garden are open to the public, right? If so, how many people usually go?

story by bish sep19

The rookies are hitting the ice as we speak. Chances are good that today will be a very tough practice for the kids as the Bruins organization tries to figure out who will be coming to Halifax.

There is still time for one or two of the youngsters to make it hard for the B's in terms of decision making.

Some people seemed concerned about that first outing for the rooks, and ya, I'd be concerned, too, if I thought that every team should be able to make a three and a half hour bus ride, after a couple of days of practice -- making sure, of course, that a majority of the team gets playing time -- and skate circles around anyone.

No, my friends, despite the 8-4 score, there was nothing that I saw yesterday that would shake my faith in the depth of the B's farm system. Obviously, I admire fans' concern and yes, I wish the New B's could have played as well as they did versus the New Jersey club last September, but all-in-all there were plenty of good things to take from the exhibition.

Each of yesterday's four goal scorers, Jordan Knackstedt, Levi Nelson, Blake Wheeler and Maxime Sauve all took advantage of their opportunities -- opportunities that lesser players may have missed. And some of the kids really made an impact on the game despite the Islanders taking control in the second. Brad Marchand and Mikko Lehtonen and Kevin Regan showed high potential, and the steady play of Zach Hamill and Andrew Bodnarchuk showed a growing maturity.

If Regan ends up with Tuukka Rask in Providence, I'll bet both men will have their best seasons yet thanks purely to competition.

Perhaps most importantly, Matt Marquardt and Scott Fletcher showed that they are willing to stick up for teammates a la Milan Lucic last season. This was also very, very good to see.

Marquardt, in particular, has shown some very good leadership skills since he arrived for Development Camp in July.

I do wish that more people could have the opportunity to travel with a hockey team on the road -- it is a fun experience at any level and yesterday was no exception. Story time on the bus is the best and makes life during rush hour on I-95

More to come...
bostonbruins.com

The newbies have concluded their practice session and have given way to the veterans.

The highlight of the session was a two-on-two drill that took place over the width of the rink. Some really good competition along the boards and in tight quarters in front of the nets. The best hit came when F Blake Wheeler steamrolled F Maxime Sauve

Did you read that somewhere or witness it? I looked for a blurb in it and couldn't find anything. I hope the big boy is okay... we definitely need him.

hopefully it's just the natural post-op stretching and pulling of the scar tissue.

That hurts like hell but dissipates over time.

Not a joke. I was there with Bri and WBG - Bri was the one who saw it first. Chara left the ice very early (for him), shortly after the wincing and working his shoulder. He did say at the STH meeting that his shoulder was not 100%, so hopefully it's just the pain involved with doing things he hasn't done in a while.

I wouldn't joke about something like that. As Slegr said, I noticed him working his shoulder and wincing and asked her and WBG if they saw it and then, after skating around hunched over, he took a few (5-6) wristers from just inside the blueline, did the wincing and working again, skated to the bench area, grabbed his extra stick and skated off.

Now, as Wally said, it could be just normal post-op stuff. The guys seemed to be trickling off the ice shortly afterward too, so he may not have cut things all that short. I'll be interested to see him tomorrow.

Hope to see some fellow HFers tomorrow too.
