I assumed Jenner would be leading a more typical checking line... something like this makes more sense to me:

Danault-Jenner-Lipon
Drouin/Camara-MacKinnon-Rattie
Camara makes a lot more sense with Jenner and Danault as a checking/energy line.

Then Lipon-Drouin-Rattie with Mackinnon as 13th forward.

He plays like a winger, he isn't a particularly good playmaker(only seens what's right in front of him). On their line in Halifax Drouin is the one to set up the cross ice plays.

Camara is a great story. I mean, there's still plenty of time to go, but surely those Bruins scouts also have an eye for those kinds of players. Who needs a checking line AND a grinding line when you can have both in a Camara-Danault-Jenner line. Awesome balance.
And a case can be made for Griffith as well for them who didn't get invited but probably should have. They already have a great young team and now they keep drafting well, not fun!!!

While he is producing well... He's turning 20 next month. To produce at that rate in junior at that age is still impressive, but not steal worthy imo

He turns 20 next month and is a year older but still a step ahead. And they took him in the 5th round which like us with Hudon could end up being great steals

Nice article about Hudon:
http://www.journaldemontreal.com/201...ott-pour-hudon

Spott a également raconté une anecdote savoureuse au sujet d’Hudon.

«Mon neveu, Stephen Weiss, des Panthers de la Floride, m’avait parlé *d’Hudon cet été, a-t-il rappelé. Je voulais connaître son opinion sur certains de nos joueurs lors de notre *série de quatre matchs contre la Russie au mois d’août.»

« Stephen avait regardé les matchs à la télévision et je me souviens de lui avoir demandé une question toute simple. Quel joueur a le plus ressorti du lot? Sans le connaître, Stephen m’avait répondu Hudon. Il aimait son sa vision, son esprit compétitif, son désir de bloquer des tirs et ses habiletés offensives. »

Hudon is one of those guys that will impress hocjey people more than the average fan, he doesn't always have the flashy goals or big hits but he makes the game look easy at times with his smarts and mature game.

Can we draw parallels between Hudon and Brad Marchand? Or am I completely out to lunch here.

Pretty neat. Hype is growing. I hope he has a good tournament like he did in the CAN-RUS series. Most of all, I hope he develops to become a solid, if not special, NHL player

Kind of out to lunch, IMO (the comparison, not you ). Hudon is nowhere near the pest and isn't remotely as gritty as Marchand is. Hudon plays much more of a finesse game.

I've never seen Camara play, but in a couple views I was impressed by Lipon's tenacity and intelligence. I could see him being an effective part of a shutdown line... and RW is his natural position.

Honestly Hudon reminds me of Camalleri. He's not the same player at all, but in particular the way he comes off the half boards the split second he sees open ice is similar.

I was thinking the same thing. Not sure if he'll be exactly the same kind of player, but a lot of Hudon's mannerisms on the ice make him look like Cammalleri.

May I have a question: Is WJC played on international rink size or NHL size ?

He is. Just not on that level. I wouldn't be surprised to see him up his game in that regard as he gets to the AHL and then the NHL.

Almost 100% sure International-size rink, since it's in UFA.

Khokhlachev is, plus he's the type of skilled sniper who is also willing to go into the corners who would compliment them.

Camara is a plug but a good plug, the kind of guy who always seem to thrive on the Bruins.

Grzelcyk was something of an NHL longshot last I heart, small puckmover who would be called a smurf by Bruins fans if he played for any other team.

Seems to be struggling this year though. Went to the KHL after playing 2 years of juniors in the CHL and only has 7 points, lowest among all forwards with at least 20 games played. Weird.

7 points in a lockout KHL as a 19 year old is pretty good IMO.
