Not sure if anyone has noticed... However i would like to point out that David Broll a very similar player to Tyler, drafted in the same year is playing fantastic hockey. Yes hes not a first year, but is the same year. Both playing on the top lines of their teams.

Yup I noticed. I'm very pleased at how all of our prospects are doing early in the season in the CHL. Broll is going to be a keeper (as is Biggs). They gave these guys contracts early for a reason...

These guys are locks for the NHL in my opinion. Very good picks, the both of them. Size is definitely coming. Whether or not they will make us better has yet to be determined though.

I wholeheartedly agree!! Those people criticizing Burke for not delivering the hardnosed team he promised need to look a little deeper. That team is on it's way and it is going to be a team that will be in it for the long haul instead of a patch and stick team. These two along with Ross are going to provide some great hockey.

Before all you *******s come in suggesting I'm saying they're the next coming of jesus! I'm just saying they will add a missing ocmponent that is needed to grind out a long successful season but am certainly not suggesting they are the be all and end all.

I really, really like both of these prospects (as well as Josh Leivo ) but I'm going to avoid using junior production alongside extremely productive linemates as a benchmark for what they may produce at the NHL level. I plan on seeing both a few times this year and am especially curious to see how well they use their body and how well they protect the puck or if the points are just coming easily for them.

Biggs will probably be playing for the Marlies next year. Is it possible for him to play for the Marlies this year if the NHL lockout ends?

Unless his season ends early in the Shwa, no?

Greg McKegg/Andrew Crescenzi as two examples.

Yeah really. The Gens fell apart after the 2-0 lead...they looked in command and ended up being lucky to get the pt.

3rd game in 3 nights, Biggs has been quiet past 2 games, Jenner cooling off too. Big game against London tonight. Will be a rough one. Could be the game of the day.

I reminded Tyler to finish his checks and to go to the net via twitter this morning. Everytime I have done this he has had a big game. London is a rough and tough team, maybe The Gens were looking past Belleville last night.

I was thinking about you hoping to get a report how he was doing, he had an assist tonight so he is still on a PPG pace this year, but more importantly against a rough and tough opponent I would be more happy if he asserted himself physically. London is like a game against Boston, these are the games you want your physical players to show up.

It was a good game. The Gens have some dynamite offense, that is for sure.

As for Biggs, he seems to be looking more and more confident with the puck. He had quite a few solid shots on net, one of which resulting in an assist. He is basically playing exactly how we expected; complimenting the more skilled players.

Physically - he still seems to be shying away from asserting himself fully in that aspect. However, he did lay a nice open ice hit in the third.

Overall, his game is improving game by game; he is starting to pick up on his line mates tendencies. I think he will be a key player in the crucial games and playoffs. He did seem to step it up after he was on the wrong end of a questionable hit.

Sounds promising, stats only tell part of the story so it is good to hear he is adjusting well. 3 games in 3 nights, he's not used to this pace. I expect at some point of the season he will hit the wall coming that he is used to 30 or so games a year. Hopefully he paces himself so he has some gas in the tank for the playoffs. Gens have a good team, they should go deep into the playoffs, it would be nice to see.

Was at the Osh-Bel game.

Biggs seemed pretty non-existent.

Read Subban was incredible Sat night, and it was a rough and tumble game with Biggs, Saborin, Laughton were throwing their weight around and The Bulls answered the physical play with their own hits.

Saw the highlights of the Belleville game, Biggs was robbed an assist when he set up Laughton for a point blank 10 footer in the slot. Subban is a difference maker, good pick by The Bruins.
