I know it's hard to go straight from a 40ish games season in the NCAA to the NHL but I think that nobody in Hamilton's forward group is more talented than Kristo.

I am watching Kamloops vs Vancouver right now, and I noticed that Bozon is playing as a centre on the pp. Is it just a pp thing or does he play centre often?

How is it that the Blades have scored a combined 16 goals in two games this weekend while thrower and Dietz combined for 1 goal and 1 assist?? I'm only asking because I havn't watched the games. Who's getting all the points???

yes i've seen him take draws in the offensive zone on the PP. Did you see the line brawl? I know that Bozon had someone tied up but I didn't see if any punches were thrown.

I watched both of Saskatoon games this weekend. They outscored Regina 16-0 over the weekend . Hopefully they carry that momentum. That's the best I've seen them play this year.

Dalton Thrower played his first and second games back from injury. He picked up 1 goal and was +6. He was paired with Colorado Avalanche prospect Duncan Siemens for the most part. He scored a beautiful goal after intercepting a pass, came flying down the wing and cut to the slot and went backhand on the goalie. He also dropped the gloves after someone ran Makarov, but the guy turned around and hid behind the refs. For the most part, I really liked his defensive game. He's very aggressive though, which at times can be his downfall. However, when it's situations where he has to defend, he usually makes the right play. I don't think he got beat 1-on-1 in either game. His skating and active stick can definitely be attributed to that. I also liked how he pushed the play forward. Playing with Siemens certainly allowed for Thrower to take more risks. Whether it be with a big hit on the blue line, passing, or by carrying the puck out, he's always pushing it forward. Speaking of passing, he's fantastic at it. His passes are crisp and accurate and he can pass extremely well under pressure. His saucer pass was a big surprise to me, it's very accurate. I mentioned how he's sometimes to aggressive in his own zone, well that also stands offensively too. Sometimes he gets too aggressive charging the puck forward, and ends up turning it over. Also, Thrower picked absolutely terrible times to the shoot the puck. I think his shooting percentage this weekend was 100%, because not one of the other times he shot hit the net as they were all blocked immediately.

I really liked Thrower's play for the most part this weekend. He provides that aggressiveness that we've missed on our backend since Wisniewski left. Hopefully he can become a player like him. Personally, I think he has it in him. He's a fantastic skater, has great hands and offensive instincts, hits everything, and is extremely aggressive.

Darren Dietz picked up an assist and was +3. He was generally paired with Graeme. Similar to Thrower, you can't help but like his combination of skating and bulldog-like mentality. Despite only picking up one point, he probably could have a few goals over the weekend. His speed always impresses me. He's just so deceptive with it. One moment you thing he's going to lose the footrace and then he takes one strides and he wins it. While he's been good all year (especially the first 10 games or so), he hasn't been very aggressive. However this weekend, he was definitely aggressive. He laid a few hits and missed quite a few others. Dietz was great in the corners too, he won the vast majority of his puck battles. He did have a few bad reads though, particularly in the first game. Luckily Makarov came up big and his skating allowed him to get back in position. Offensively, he had a large number of chances. He has a great wrist shot and a bomb of a point shot. Both of which he uses he very effectively. His assist came from a shot that rebounded right on McColgan's stick for an easy tap in.

He had a great weekend too. He made was very good defensively and had multiple chances offensively. He's more of a power play specialist offensively, as he doesn't really show off that craftiness that he demonstrates on the PP. His booming shot is a huge part of his production.

Their forwards. Nicholls had 6 points, Stransky and Walker had 7, and Kambeitz had 5. Most of the Blades goals came from sustained pressure or capitalizing on terrible give aways in the Regina zone.

He is a senior, so yes he is an older player in the league but what is wrong with his stats? He had a slow start to this season, but scored 18 goals a year ago, so some potential is there I think. Big, strong forward that plays well in all 3 zones. I know he turned down some offers this past year to return for his senior season.

Yeah, not sure what his deal is this year, other than he's extremely snake bitten, but he's a good hockey player. I could see him in a 3rd line role someday. Reminds me of Chris Porter.

I'm thinking if he stays on a line with Rocco Grimaldi, his point total at the end of the year will be more than ok.

It's okay, point streaks are beginning for Bozon, Thrower and Nystrom.

Looking at the schedule, Collberg's next game will be for Team Sweden. Their WJC camp begins on the 15th, which is also the date of Orebro's next game.

Don't know but maybe they let him play that game before joining the camp.

Exactly
(same goes for Galchenyuk...stay healthy).

Hoping Hudon gets to represent Canada at WJC
And, can't wait to see Galchenyuk wear the bleu, blanc, rouge for the USA (WJC), and then for next season...our bleu, blanc, rouge!! (Habs).

Good timing it takes a little of the pressure off or letdown while concentrating on the big ticket,WJHC's.Hudon's captaincy is well deserved and let his play be an inspiration for all those playing at the World's this Christmas and New Years.

'Prospect Capital' baby. Cultivate each prospect as much as possible and let them grow together, i.e., the LA Kings. Once you have your developed core, you can peddle prospects on the verge of the NHL into experienced, star veteran players like Mike Richards, Jeff Carter and... Dustin Penner. Haha.

This has to be the approach and it will be the approach. It should take three years if things go at a conservative rate. It could be two years if these players, combined with players like Eller, Pacioretty, Subban, etc, gel together and reach their ceilings.

People say the lockout is good for the Habs, well, its good for all NHL teams, particularly teams that have traditionally rushed their youth like Columbus and the Islanders. So I would not say that the Habs have benefited too, too much. Although, the fact that our young Bulldogs are forced to play against near NHL level competition, is very good for their second years in the pro game.

I knew Lukas Sutter was having a crappy year but holy cow! 31 GP 3-5-8 and -13 for a 19 year old forward drafted 39th overall. Right up there with Phoenix taking Kessy 111th and putting up 4-12-16 in 49 games at 19.

6 sounds about right. He definitely looks taller than Pleks and Kristo.

When considering the depth of prospects the Habs have that represented their countries in International competitions,one can only assume that their team in the near future will be a winner.On the Hamilton Bulldogs alone there are 11 players that have represented their countries at the WJHC's.With that level of play,it's only a matter of experience in the AHL before many of those players will move onto the NHL ranks. Hudon,Collberg,Galchenyuk and Bozon are others to young for the AHL,then Kristo and Bennett from the College ranks.Things are bright for the Habs future.
