Aaand there's your 3rd line.
That's a nice line.

I like the spirit he showed during the QMJHL playoffs, but I know his biggest criticism was physicality and consistency. I'm excited to hear how he plays in Iowa (still feels weird not saying Houston).

Yep, contrary to popular belief, physicality and two-way play don't necessarily go hand in hand.

As much of a project pick as he might be, I like the combination of scoring ability, hustle and physical play that he's got. Let's hope he turns into a Clutterbuck with a better shot rather than a Gillies.

Also, I'm really hoping that Bulmer's injuries are not recurring ones, because he might still develop into a good bottom-sixer.

Everything I've heard says that's a false notion. He's got a real mean streak to him. Like Burrows, without the dirty stupid crap that comes along with him.

Pretty bold to assume that Bussieres and Graovac can become first liners.

When you're getting killed in a series because of the 3rd line of the opposition doing most of the scoring... you'd want guys who can blur those lines too. Good teams have the ability to pot goals from the lower lines.

IF Bulmer can get his act together, a line of Bussieres - Graovac - Bulmer would be intriguing... and large.

I'm excited! I like him quite a bit so I'm glad he's got a contract now. It'd be neat to see him in a preseason game in the fall.

Watching him play in the Q this year, he's decent. Good hustle. I don't think he has the skill to produce much offensive at the pro level but he'll probably be a decent 3rd/4th line kind of guy. Could end up an AHL'er.
