Ryan Spooner and Jared Knight are probably their 2 best prospects in Providence but for Knight he has been injured a lot in the last year. Injury prone player

Bruins will be solid for years if they can keep the core together

As long as he continues to get consistent ice time (which he should, his father is the GM) and doesn't let the fact he's not gonna put up huge numbers playing on a terrible offensive team in a very low scoring league get his confidence down I'm fine with a year of the KHL and he should learn a thing or to from that level of play. He also shows no intentions of sticking in Russia as he's already signed an NHL contract and I'm pretty sure would have played in the AHL if he could this year (only went to Russia because he felt he was done with the OHL).
Thanks for your input, much appreciated Didn't realize his father was the GM, that explains the trip back home then.

Collberg with Lindholm should be very productive.
Collberg/Lindholm If that line stays together into the round robin, I'm going to mail poisonous spiders to TSN for not showing any Sweden games.

Hudon not practicing on the PP, looks like there are at least 7 forwards ahead of him:

@markhmasters
Unsurprisingly Canada's top PP unit is Huberdeau-RNH-Scheifele w/ Rielly-Hamilton; 2nd unit: Drouin-Strome-Rattie/Ritchie w/ Murphy, Ouellet

8 forwards, maybe 9 ahead of him for PP time. (Mckinnon and maybe Lipon)

Not surprised. Interesting that Drouin is on there but not Mac...

MacKinnon is more of an "off the rush" type player. Drouin has great vision and hockey sense so he thrives on the PP.

Their two biggest pieces are aging...Chara and Thomas...and Thomas may never play there again. Rask is promising but he may never reach the levels Thomas did in the last 5 years. Chara is 35.

Agreed, the main reason they won the cup to begin with was Thomas stepping his game up. Rask is good and Subban is promising, but neither are proven the way Teabag Timmy was.

And as good as Hamilton is going to be...they are going to have an adjustment period with Chara's decline.

The Bruins likely have a bright future sadly, but that team is going to have growing pains.

Collberg and Lindholm have had chemistry previously. I hope Timmins is taking notes.

Your Christmas party is in the morning? Because the game is at 9:30 AM.

This, it's been too long.

Cnada vs. Finland at 9:30 A.M., and then USA vs. Sweden at 12:30, sounds like a good way to spend the day.

Hudon with a minor back injury will not play the next exhibition game. Might be just precaution. More details by tomorrow for sure.

About to start:

Forsberg-Karlsson-Rakell
Molin-Lindholm-Collberg
Arvidsson-Rask-Sörensen
Wennberg-Boyce Rotevall-de la Rose
Sandberg-Fröberg

...not sure if the top 6 will get a ton of ice time, Sweden might be looking to evaluate their depth players.

Liking Binnington a lot more than Malcolm. And it's not a Boston thing. Binnington is just really well positioned with pretty good rebound control. Just needs to work on covering the top of the net.

Hamilton is such an idiot. He's so much better than that but he takes the dumbest penalties.

Collberg being played a lot today. He has great hands, skating ability and shot. Also he looks a lot bigger out there today. He has the trust of the coaching staff.
