Sharks just signed Ferriero yesterday it seems. Can we get a scouting report other than what can be found on the web?
Not much to add to what I'm sure you've read....
Can play center or wing. Decent speed and good defensively.. Likes to throw some big hits for a guy his size (not sure if that will translate to the pro's). Was awesome at everything his first 3 years in college, but last year he was snake bitten. Some BC fans thought he could be a hobey contender his senior season. He scores in bunches, then has a slump. He and several other BC players seemed to have a post national championship hangover last year.
I wish him well in the pros, but I don't know that he will make it to the NHL. FYI, I never consider myself a good evaluator of pro potential. If he gets his confidence back and does make it to the NHL could be a pleasant surprise. I see him more as a 2nd liner in the AHL.
Nice win by BC tonight as they scored 7 goals. The under classmen are contributing with the upper classmen. Ben Smith already has 6 goals which was his total goals last year. Hopefully they get the sweep on Sunday.
They were really, really impressive in the BU game. I thought Muse looked back to his 07-08 form, their additions on D (Dumoulin and Cross in particular) provided a solidifying effect that was missing last year IMO plus Sneep has been on fire. And although they don't really have any "name" forwards unless you count Kreider, it's a good group, fast skaters who forecheck well and cause problems.
In short, a typical BC team, back to being a serious threat unfortunately, last year was good while it lasted.
