Very good article from Douglas Flynn in todays Herald.
Outstanding quote of the day goes to Karsums- "I like to hit people". "I don't think size really matters. I like to hit as often as I can". There's a prospect and a refreshing change. ("Sully" (snicker) would have sat him on the bench or out entirely for that quote)
Lucic sounds like a gamer as well which is good to see.
It's good that Kessel has come as advertised so far with the speed and great moves.
Hopefully, we have some great building blocks for the future in camp this year unlike in the past where we haven't seen much promise from our so-called "prospects". Things are looking up so far.
– No scraps broke out in the scrimmage, but there was no lack of physical play. Karsums, who stands just 5-foot-10, 180 pounds, showed his aggressive side when he dumped Tyler Redenbach along the boards late in the first period. “I just like to hit people,” said Karsums, a native of Latvia who played Junior hockey in Moncton (QMJHL). “I don’t think size really matters. I just try to go out there and hit people as much as I can.”
Can't remember hearing a Bruin say that in awhile...
Doesn't the entire organization seem like it has a new attitude. It feels different and Lewis, Chiarelli, the players all come across as likeable.
New GM, new coach, big time free agents, spending to the cap, great young players, heck even new third jerseys.. This is like night and day from previous years. I can't wait till opening night...............
You just gotta love the attitude from Karsums and Lucic!
Kessel and Kalus seem to be making quite an impression also. These two and Stastny are my picks to make the opening night roster. Everything is looking great so far, should be an exciting couple of weaks.
