He actually does play a little soft along the boards for a winger and doesn't battle hard enough to recover the puck. Fortunately he doesn't play scared and will go to the dirty areas to score but definitely prefers to sneak in the back door and slither into deveioping passing lanes. He does have very good instincts and a quick and accurate release.

The has question with Bozon has always been how he will project in a pro style game without much of a physical side to his game and a lack of commitment to play both ends of the ice. Both problems are very correctable and he seems to be improving on last seasons effort which is always a positive sign.

Bang on, IMO.

His high-end offensive capabilities are questionable too. It seems more likely that he'll top out as a 3rd liner who can fill in occasionally on a 2nd line in the NHL.

From what I've seen he is something of a perimeter player, not one afraid of contact but not naturally committed to it either. Sounds like he's improving in this regard which is good to hear, but will need more strength for it.

Also while I don't think the dev camp told the whole story, his shot probably isn't as high end as Gally or Collbergs.

I was at 2 of those 4 development camp sessions and have been going to a lot of those over the last 2 years...You have to understand that Galchenyuk's shot is the most powerful I have seen from one of our prospects. Collberg was a notch below, but still very impressive.

Any comparisons to their shots is a bit unfair.

Strangely, the trait he had most of his problems with in the dev. camp was his shot. You'd look at the camp and just feel that he didn't have that great of a shot. Then you compared it to Collberg and Gally and felt he had a pretty weak one. You then see some games and feel it's not that bad after all.

I remember hearing an interview with Bozon just before the start of dev. camp where he says he did his summer training off the ice and that last time he put on his skates was before the draft. He was probably just a little bit rusty.

Galchenyuk participated in a few events during the summer and that might also explain the difference.

Bur the hands and the potentiel are surely there.
Agreed, he seems to have the hands as he slid a nice pass to his linemate, but his skating looked slugish to me.

He seems to know where to be on the ice, I watched about half of last nights game and he covers a lot of ground quickly but also seems to be smart positionaly. Overall it helps that he's on a good team as I was really impressed with how well they played.

I thought he looked good as well, agreed on being fluid and smooth skater, but I didn't think he looks stocky, in fact i'd say he's got to fill out and improve both his upper and lower body strength. But at 18 it's to be expected, he'll have several years to work on this at least.

He lacks strength and mass imo. Can't really speak to him being soft or not yet but he didn't appear to be overly physical (the only other time I saw him play was the CHL Top Prospects game last year and the stream from the development camp) It looked like he could get knocked off the puck easily but i'll have a better feel for him as the season goes on.

Like I said, BEFORE I compared it to Gally and Collberg's, I had already thought that his shot was rather weak. Not David Fischer's weak.....but weak nonetheless and especially from a supposed pure scorer. Not often crisp, not often precise. Then you compare it and find it extremely bad.....but that was not my main point. I thought Thrower's wrister was much better. Though Vail was a little better. Thought that a lot of people had a better wrister. So either he was not going at it full blast, either he had a wrist injury, either it was a bad day at work. 'Cause it does seem to me on the Web that it's much better. Still work to be done though.

You guy's have to understand that Bozon was a 3rd round pick.. He's a ''project player''.

He has pretty impressive abilities, he just need's to improve them.

Saying his highest potential is a 3rd liner is just not true. Wether or not he improves his ability should be the topic here. He could be a good 1st liner in 3-4 years. You never know. He's got a good body, and a good skillset to start with.

We've seen lesser skillset/genetics make it and be succesful in the NHL and be constant factor.

Gally was a 3rd overall pick and Collberg was considered to be a top 10 forward for this draft.

Those were some nice goals from Bozon. He's just flat out dangerous in the O-zone.

He is very instinctual in front of the crease. He gets the puck and his release is so quick. His goals are a product of good hockey sense, positioning, quick release and good accuracy. Steal in the 3rd round. He must have been next in line on every teams draft board from the 2nd round onwards.

Might we have drafted a Jordan Caron type of player in the third round?

I love how adamant Bozon is at finishing his checks. I've never seen him knock someone over, but he tries and tries again. He took a run a Keegan Lowe and he just bounced off him. Bozon definitely needs to gain some strength.

And there's an assist!

No. He's serving the second game of a two-game suspension for a hit to the head. He'll back in the lineup Friday.

Why do you say that? He is in the lineup. Just not having a big stat night.

Edit: Left the first after a hit to the head.....Didn't come back.

Does Hudon have a previous concussion history?

I think he does, Huberdeau clocked him in the playoffs last year.

Not good if he's concussed again...
