like what? they are the same height? btw Hoggan is a forward also

Again Seguin and Sauve both can really skate and know how to score plus share similiar build. Maybe once we see Sauve play more, he will look more like a Horton. Bottom line is if healthy i'm excited to see what he can do at the pro level.

Huge if under the "play more" category with Sauve, the guy firstly has to stop injurying himself reaching for a kleenex box.

Seems/sounds like the kid is well liked by the Brass, and has solid skills, but if he continues to be injury prone, whether it`s just bad luck or otherwise, he may never get his chance....at least as a Bruin

Me too. He brings all the tools and is scrappier than Seguin, not that I would put him at the same level. Lets hope he has a healthy camp and finally makes the roster. His opportunities are fleeting.

Sauve hasn't been able to get to his peak bc he is constantly injured. But how about if he strengthens up , doesn't get injured, gets a try out in the nhl for a good majority of the year, could he score about 15 -20 goals, 35-40 pts?

Also regarding knight, even if he plays with two poor players, he should do well for himself and raise their games. He is in his 4th year. That is a truly good player, not needing another player to define your game. 52 points in 52 games is not great for a 4th year player. Also for a clutch playoff guy , he has scored only 7 points.
Actually, my personal belief is that only a truly "great" player has the ability to raise the game of average linemates, and Knight is not in that category imo. I think that Knight has done very well considering his role in London this year, regardless of what "year" this is for him. Only time will tell.

If I remember correctly, weren't you pimping Cunningham this past offseason (although that could have been Eannad, I get you two confused)? How many years did he play in the juniors before putting up good numbers?

As far as Sauve goes, I like him, but the kid is obviously made of glass. Wasn't able to stay healthy in junior hockey, hasn't been able to do it in the pros. I would not count on him for anything at this point, nor would I compare him to Seguin (in substance or games played).

any of the bruins faithful hear anything regarding Koko sticking around and possibly playing in the KHL next season? Towards the end of the year he suffered a pretty big injury that kept him out of the lineup for the rest of the year. Apparently he is back home now and maybe sticking around to play in the KHL so he can make some $$$ unless the Bruins step up and sign him. Could he just be playing hard ball?

Seriously? Do you have a link to something? Way out of left field and frankly ridiculous.

I have my ear on the ground and the footsteps I hear are those of Koko pacing back and forth anxiously awaiting the start of the next OHL season.

In all seriousness, Koko could have been a millionaire already. The KHL formed a junior league basically because of Koko. His face was plastered all over the country as the next big thing and all their advertisement was centered around him. And he walked (skated) away before ever lacing up the skates for them to play in....you guessed it, the OHL, for $50 a week.

Don't think money is the determining factor for Koko.

How could I forget ! Maybe that's why the Russians left him off of Team Russia for the Subway Super Series.

Speaking of Koko, is he going to be OK for development camp? I'm assuming so, but haven't heard anything.

Outlook: Like Tyler Seguin two years ago, expect to see Hamilton in Boston next year because he is not eligible to play in the AHL. Whether he is ready for the NHL is debateable, but the Bruins control his development if they bring him up as opposed to whatever situation he ends up in back in the OHL for a fourth season. Even with reduced playing time as a 6 or 7 in Boston, ******* Hamilton would undoubtedly benefit from being around the team and players like Zdeno Chara, Dennis Seidenberg, Andrew Ference and the rest of the roster and coaching staff.********

Does he project as just a wing in the NHL or could he play some center as well?

Great article by Kirk. Its good to get an update on prospects like Chudinov and Gothberg that we don't read much about.
