i live in the states and have the sports package with comcast, so I get a lot of NCAA games. If you have money, lots of teams do webcasts for home games for a monthly fee.

Another day, another Bozon goal.

He's on a roll right now. So far, he has 11 goals in 11 games this month.

EDIT: And an assist too. I don't even know how to describe Kamloops. Unbelievable.

It's almost as if Kamloops is playing on ''rookie'' mode.

Bennett and Kristo each with an assist, MacMillan shutout for 3rd straight game.

Is the NCAA League level comparable to Canadian Junior Leagues ?

You guys gotta see the goal that Kristo got the assist on. It was pretty sweet.

the goal is at about 35 seconds in.

Depends on the conferences, but typically it's a more advanced level of hockey than the CHL. Every player is at least 18 years old, lots of 21-22 year olds. That's the main difference with the CHL, the players are simply older and more mature.

Kristo and MacMillan play in the WCHA, which is usually very strong. North Dakota, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Denver, etc are always very competitive teams in that conference and often recruit high profile NHL draftees.

Bozon adds an assist with 2 minutes left, another 3 point night.

Bozon had a 3 point night. That's 3 consecutive 3 point nights. He's currently 3rd in WHL scoring. He has a 3 point lead on 4th place Curtis Valk. Lipon has 10 points on 3rd place Bozon. What a year the Blazers are putting together.

It's still early but right now my money is on the Blazers for the Mem cup. Their offence is tearing up the WHL, and with Saskatoon a mess the WHL winner basically has home advantage this year.

No team in the OHL really impresses me, Halifax is clearly the best team in the Q but I wouldn't rule out the Armada or of course the Remparts, but they will have to travel across Canada.

Bozon may be a smaller Jason Ward. Tears up the league with linemate(s), does nothing without. Of course the habs actually had Ward's linemate in the AHL but he was a career minor leaguer and they never tried them together in the higher league.

Bozon's numbers are awesome but what will he do when he's not with his two older, higher scoring line mates?

Can't knock the stats, though.

Lipon wasn't even drafted. Who's to say he won't sudden suck ? Hell, all of them can suck outside of junior...

The Kamloops Blazers have a history of putting really competitive winning teams together ask Ken Hitchcock about the Blazers.Team play is what creates winning streaks like the Blazers are accomplishing again in Kamloops.They certainly have built a winning organization there and can be very proud of all the accolades they so richly deserve.Go Blazers Go!

Watched the North Dakota game. Guess the coach was indeed sending a message to the top line as Kristo's line was back as the #1 line and MacMillan's line was moved back to the 2nd line. Was a fun game to watch, thought Kristo's line was the best again and that play was a highlight reel move on both passes.

MacMillan was paired with Kristo on the PK, and they continued to use Kristo on the point on the PP.

Lots of games on today to watch!

They are very hard to compare, the CHL has more talent throughout, as the NCAA has a very wide range of good teams vs bad teams. There are some very good teams in the NCAA but then there are some weak to very weak conferences like the Atlantic, Independant (only has 2 teams, Penn St and Alabama Huntsville) and ECAC. Plus there is no age limit, so you get older players that are more physically mature, it's not uncommon to have 22, 23, 24 year olds on the team while they almost never have players under 18.

Ward couldn't skate and had injury problems. Bozon appears to be skilled but lacks mass/strength especially lower body strength. Since he's 18, he'll have a couple years to work on filling out his frame but at this point he's nothing like Ward, but I understand what you are saying, can he produce without his linemates and that's a valid question that likely won't be answered this year. We'll see where he's at in 2 years when he moves up to the AHL.

Not a good comparison. Ward was taken for his size and his production, yet anybody who analysed him carefully would have notice that the hockey sense wasn't there. Which can't be said for Bozon.

Then, Ward amongst others, wouldn't be the first guy who reaches his ceiling before the NHL. Happened to a lot of other people. Yet, you sometimes CAN'T predict that. It's impossible. But some people don't understand how it works. Personnally, the hockey sense was a big red flag for me. A guy that can produce that much without a good awareness is often unable to improve it and his production is solely explained by the talent alone. Add the size and that's only the reason why it went that way. But it's easier said than done, you have a guy with that package and if you don't go further, you pick him. But frankly, you can't compared the eras as well. You never know but with the experts we have now, compared to the experts we have today, Ward might never have been a 1st rounder to begin with.

Anyway, just wanted to pinpoint those infos. While some are mostly hindsight, hockey sense wasn't. Skating was also an issue but some believe everybody can improve and it might not be far from reality. But hockey sense? Rarely will it improve that much. And is often what separates NHL'ers than non-NHL'ers.

Bozon is a much better skater than Ward.

Bozon highlights from last night: http://www.blazerhockey.com/video/in...ce141a3e44eed7

His most impressive moment was hitting the post on that breakaway after a fancy move.

Watching the Pribyl vs Pleks match. Jagr just scored a beauty end to end rush. Pribyl is on the 4th line LW. Hasn't seen much ice so far but did have a nice pass and then on the return feed if he handled the pass he likely would of had an open net as it was a 2 on 1.

Looks like Nystrom has recovered from his slump, glad to see him scoring goals and not just getting assists.

Not very good, but his lack of foot speed is more concerning. I think he needs to work on his lower body strength and balance but for a 19 year old he's got a huge frame upper body wise. If he can get quicker and improve his lower body strength he's going to be an interesting prospect as he going to be a moose on skates with good hands.
