Hamilton may eventually be an All Star but there's no way Knight will be in my opinion. As awesome as it would be to see all three players we got from the PK deal invited to the ASG..

The only way that happens if if Boston hosts it one year and we pull an Ottawa/Montreal and stuff the ballot, haha

The only individual I've seen refer to him as a future perennial Norris candidate was his coach

If Dennis Wideman can be an All Star then at some point, Jared Knight most certainly can be one. Don't sell guys short.

You guys are right about him and the Norris, the Hart and Calder trophys on the other hand are as good as his next year. They'll be renaming him Hart Ross in a few years.

No, but they can start carving the "D" now to save time.

Agree silly
The 2012 NHLPA poll featured 318 NHL players responding to the questionnaire.
The most underrated player:
Patrice Bergeron

Plus, there are not many 6'5 200lbs 18 year olds (and still growing/bulking up...sick) coming out of jr hockey with a resume like Dougies (d-man of the year, pts, etc)...if this kid stays healthy and has big Z mentoring him ...he will be the beast that "most of us" think he will be
and it cannot be ignored, the kid only started playing D at 14 if not mistaken??? Pretty special talent indeed

One of my all time fav Bruins, if not for injuries, I`d wager we`d be still talking about his playing days with appreciation, he was a very good player, Norris potential??? Not with 77 there but.....don`t worry, some here were so gaga over Kampfer ya woulda thought they had his name entered as a Norris finalist too

Problem with that whole Kessel move IMO is that he identified the incorrect need at the totally wrong time, what I believe he should have done was try and secure the services of a legit #1 centerman first, THEN go after a winger like Kess but.......his loss is definitely the Bruins gain, hopefully on all 3 draft picks accounts

Burke`s ability to recognize talent has been horrendous, a huge case of a man living off the "legend" of a Cup win in which he had little to do with orchestrating.

Pronger: Wasn`t going to ever play again in Edmonton, he and Burke had ties going back to the Hartford days

Neidermeyer: Made it clear, if he were to play again, it would only be with his brother
