I'm worries that camara might be one of those guys who will lose effectiveness if he's reigned in. And if he's not reined in, he's a menace the league wants to clean out

[QUOTE=ODAAT;72575685]As always, thx Dan, your bias towards Knight, IMO, has never affected your observations/opinions of his game when he has been healthy. I don`t follow the PB`s, I find their website too wacky and I don`t know any other links to stay in tune with them but I don`t get the keeping of a Junior eligible prospect only to have them sit upstairs constantly either. I do get it if that kid is playing in the NHL and from time to time he watches a game upstairs for a different view, but I don`t understand it at the AHL level.

Is Sweeney the man who calls the lineup shots there? Or does he hand Cassidy the approach to games, who plays, who doesn`t etc???

Has Camara made any impression or is he too one that`s getting a view from upstairs?[/QUOTE]

He sat last game, maybe he was hurt?

No info here about him

I did read on Mark Divver's twitter that they moved Koko to wing so he can get top 6 minutes and also goes along with Cassidy's preference for big centers like Flick and Fallstrom

Nice!

But, that assessment is waaaaay to insightful and honest. Cassidy will need to learn how to say a lot without saying anything if he wants to make it in the big league.

Why is that too insightful and honest? Does he have to lie or couch his terms when trying to develop a young player?

True, you must be diplomatic with dealing with a veteran, for example, who perhaps has seen time at the ML level.

Cassidy is an experienced coach at the NHL and AHL level. I trust his assessment of young talent. And I trust the player to respect the coach's judgement.

Seems to be half the problem I have with many coaches, sugar coat too much to be honest. While a coach doesn`t have to toss his troops under a bus in the media, I find it refreshing that Cassidy spoke highly of Morrow`s potential, and honestly about trying to pry it out of him

Line up is so deep, he will get his games. Someone will get hurt or underperform and he will be given a proper chance.

As posted previously I’m going to be going to the game tomorrow night in Manchester. I got a ticket 1st row right behind the P Bruins bench as I’ve never sat in that area for a game before. I realize that my view of the game is going to be restricted but wanted to try it out. However now I have doubts about my seat choice. How much of the game will I see and is it worth it as a onetime experience or should I try to get a different seat?

Camara is having trouble with the pace and tempo of the AHL.

Just underscores the unrealistic expectations some had from him after just one real productive season of major junior.

He has talent and toughness to eventually be a big leaguer, but nowhere near ready for any kind of NHL job at present. He's got a lot to figure out, but he should get there in time.

It's always interesting to see who adjusts to the pro game quickly and who doesn't. Take a guy like Fallstrom: not the best skater, put up fair numbers at Harvard and was a somewhat under-the-radar acquisition (Kobasew trade); he's fitting in well, putting up a few points and playing a smart game defensively. I don't see his spot on the 4th line as any indictment of his skill or ability--if anything, I think he's there in order to avoid having players like Flick and Randell on the ice at the same time.

Then, as you note, you have a player like Camara who will need some time to adjust. In the preseason game against Worcester he took (and received) a big hit but didn't stand out at all. I hope he does well but I wouldn't be shocked if he makes the occasional trip to South Carolina for playing time. The PBees have a lot of guys vying for playing time in their bottom 6...and Robins will be back soon.

Fallstrom is one of the more underrated guys around. Not all that quick, and that hurts him in the court of public opinion, but damn- he is smart and has some slick mitts. He has the body and temperament to be an effective NHL checking/grinder/energy forward. His only problem is that he's trying to do it in Boston.

He loves Johan Franzen-- the one guy he most tries to model his game after. Doesn't have Franzen's wheels, but does everything else in similar fashion.

You know, as a piggyback to Dan's great post a few days ago, I would be totally Ok with Knight and Griffith flanking Spooner, as opposed to Johnson and Fraser.

No disrespect intended for either of those guys, but I think the B's FO pretty much knows what they are, and are not (moreso Johnson). I want to see guys like KoKo, Knight, Cunningham, Griffith, Fallstrom, and Lindblad (when he returns) gettigng as many reps as possible and time on special teams.

I thought that's what an AHL team was for?

Is he a good prospect?

You want Spooner to play with capable players. Griffith and Knight going up against other top lines and d pairing at the point is not a good idea. Would get dominated.

Looking at the Boxscore it seems like a pretty ugly night at the Dunk

Subban gave up 6 goals on 28 shots
Spooner 0 0 -3

PBruins goals by Cunningham and Fraser
