Very weird to me that he got moved to pro when he hasnt shown much in College yet.
how can you even say he has injury problems. Pens fans were so defensive when people said Staal had injury problems for a freak accident and now we're readily throwing that label on our own guys. Get real.

Wish some official confirmation on the Semin deal was available, if it's even true?

The thing is that I would not mind that if Crosby had a sniper of Semin's or Parise's caliber on the other side. We get into problems when Dupuis is Crosby's go to guy instead of the grit guy on the line playing the same role Kunitz does on the Malkin line.

Just assume it's not true and go along with your day.

Plus, it would give us more balanced pairings.

Desprès - Letang
Martin - Niskanen
Orpik - Engelland

Not too bad.
you know I've had the idea that this would be the pairings by the end of the season in the back of my mind for a wile.

If Despres is paired with Tanger and Martin stays, there's gonna be a serious battle for the 6/7 spots. Engelland/Strait/Bortuzzo/Dumoulin/Morrow.

and 37 the year before, as a freshman. College seasons are around 40 games. If we're gonna be tagging people as injury prone lets not use 30 games of their college careers as 19 year olds, as the only qualification.

He had a freak accident, which is ipso facto, not indicative of a "condition."

Is Letang injury prone too? Or does that logic only extend to topics in which you want to be the dissent?

Agreed but I wouldn't put Morrow on that list unless he's a regular on the 3rd pairing. He has too much upside to spend his 1st year of pro hockey bouncing around between 6th and 7th spot.

There has to be some way to make money of Bennett's good looks. What's the name of Barbie's new boyfriend doll again? The Australian surfer dude? He looks exactly like that.

Hey, he should have to work his way back up the depth chart after last year's **** show. Lucky he even made #5.

Like Jig said, there are two top 6 spots available, provided one wants to move Dupes out of the top 6 (I think most do). Further, Bennett's coach at DU had this to say on his departure:

Quote:
"Beau is big-time talent who would have put up big numbers for us last season if it wasn't for his injury. We wish Beau continued success and hope to see him in the NHL soon."
http://www.denverpost.com/du/ci_2039...#ixzz20F9Gx2Bs

So he seems more than convinced of Bennett's abilities at this point.

I get what you mean, but my point is that if BB is in the top six, that isn't a bad thing like this cat was trying to say.

I'll take BB over Dupuis in the top six every day of the week.

If BB pushes Dupuis out of the top six, it means he played well and that can only be seen as a positive to me.

Also, BB in the top six doesn't mean Shero didn't acquire another winger. Four spots, two current legit wingers.

Easy math.

Only in California would someone name their child Beau. I am glad he is up over 200 pounds, in the schools I grew up at he would not have gone a day without someone fighting him with that name.

42 game season year before he missed 5.....then last yr he missed all but 10.

I'm not saying he's Martin Havlat made of glass. I'm just saying he hasnt shown me a lot in College and I dont think he's nearly ready for the NHL.

"Bo" is a very common name is it not?

bro, he was most likely scratched a few games during his freshman season as a 170 pound 18 year old in a big time D-1 program.

That is the southern version, isn't it? And if so, yes I think so, in the south.

Well I just meant in general. I didn't know if you meant the spelling or just the name.

I actually think he had an injury (knee?) his freshman season. Either way, one legit injury where he missed a few weeks and one totally freak injury. I'm not going to call him injury prone.

What's the rumours of the Semin's apparent contract? Any reported lengths and cap hits?
