Dude! I loved Kevin Dallman! Underdog and I thought he was going to be a bottom-pair powerplay guy for us for some time. Sucks that he never made it here.

Yeah, I was convinced he was going to be a star

I may have to go ahead and eat crow on my call that Caron would turn out to be a better player than Colborne as well ... I think they're both equally bad and unmotivated

Colborne led all forwards in ice time tonight in Calgary ( ) and finished 0-0-0 with a minus-2 and 53% in the circle.

Classic. Dad had 67`s season tix for decades and we watched Mo for, I believe 3 seasons, he had an absolutely remarkable final year, every time he was on the ice it seemed like the puck ended up in the back of the net, almost had 70 goals, close to 140pts that year

He was never a can`t miss kind of prospect but I thought surely he`d be a solid NHL`er for years

Petr Kalus: would've kept him over Krejci. Yikes.

Tim Thomas: I once argued on these boards that Thomas was an average to slightly above average goalie at best and too streaky to ever take a team to a Cup. Ooops.

Paille - gave up on him in the 2011 season. Didn't think he would amount to anything in Boston.

Wheeler - thought his one on one skills were special in his first year. Then he figured out how to make it look like he was working hard without working hard. The same disease Sequin discovered.

Partly Seguin, although I never joined the "I WOULDN'T TRADE HIM FOR ANYTHING" bandwagon.(See Drew Doughty thread for insanity), but I like most others had very high hopes for him having a long long career here. I still think he'll be a stud, but obviously not here

Chris Kelly and Jordan Caron in a sense, but they're both slowing down now.


It's tempting to say Krejci, but at the same time...he's playing at the level right now I've always known he can play. My criticism has been the consistency in effort. I think I've always been clear when I'm saying that he can be more than a 57-62 point guy if he put forth the effort.

Tim Thomas.

Backin_72 always believed in him and tried to convince me. I think it wasn't until after Terry passed away that I really started to believe in Timmy.

Was wrong of way too many prospects to post. On the current roster I have some crow to eat over Kelly. I thought he was cooked, but he has been one of our best forwards so far this season. I would say he has been our 2nd best C.

I hope I'm wrong on Soderberg, who I don't think is going to meet his LF hype.

Krejci, I wanted a team with two number one defencemen and I would have traded him for a guy like that.

Also felt he was more like Craig Janney (I hated him) than Adam Oates and would have made a similar trade for an 'upgrade'.

Krecji was someone who I thought should have been traded during all the trade talks 2 years ago. I was All about trading him or Lucic for someone like Bobby Ryan. Guess I'm eating my words now considering Krecji has been unreal in the playoffs and Lucic has stepped up to be what I would consider an "unmarked captain"

Rask v Thomas

You can't argue with the results, but statistically Rask's numbers last year and Tim's numbers the year they won the cup are pretty close. Same save percentage and Rask had a lower GAA. I also think that last years Blackhawks were a better (or more complete) team than the Vancouver team they won against.

But I'd say it's Rask for me, too. I watched him play behind Thomas and it didn't seem like he'd amount to much.

Grigori Panteleev had the best "debut" I have ever seen.

It was actually his second NHL game, but he was magic with Adam Oates that Saturday afternoon and scored 2 goals. I was sure he was going to lead the Bruins to several Cups.

The year Thomas had in 2011 is up there with the greatest combined years (regular season and playoffs) of all time. He is up there with Bernie Parent.

Rask may never have a season like that, (but he was just as good in the playoffs), but if the Bruins have to expect one of the greatest goaltending performances of all time to win the cup, their chances are rather slim.

Seguin

I thought he would get it here and really believed in him, was extremely dissapointed in his playoff performance (despite "battling" in front of the net ot game 7 vs leafs and getting an assist off his skate ) and saddened his career had to end here so quickly

Not uncommon in this day and age of need it yesterday, your not alone.

Not sure of the demographic you fall into but some of us blue hairs here recall a day when a prospect was expected to take 3-5 years to be "ready". Clearly that wasn`t every prospect but...

Maybe a topic for a different thread but why do you think there is a push to get Prospects into the NHL so quickly now?

Geez, I`m not sure I`m anywhere near as qualified as some of our posters here to comment on that but I`ll try......

My "belief" is the cap plays the biggest role, to keep costs down, some teams "appear" to be willing to absorb some of the mistakes a kid will make to trim costs down?

I also think every team has made the mistake of being a touch too enamored by a solid, if unspectacular 10 game stretch where they make their decisions on whether to send that player back to Junior?

Another area that could dictate things too is there seems to be a divided opinion on what`s "best" for the kid`s development, loads of ice time and a perception that they`ll go down to Junior and dominate (which we see, but not nearly as often as some think) rather than play in the NHL.

Again, chances are I am waaaaaaaaaaaaaay off with all of this TCL

The ultimate reason....lack of patience with GM`s too. You will rarely see a Ken Holland rush anyone

i have a few that i had too many expectations for... not alot that overachieved. lapoine/mara are two of my biggest guys i expected alot more out of... put brad stuart in there too. I guess almost everyone that played for the team between 1997 and 2007 could fit into the catagory of giving me less then i expected out of them though.

bob sweeney and steve heinze were a bit earlier... always expected a 30-35 goal season out of both of these streaky guys

Cameron Mann.
Based upon his play-off performances in the OHL, he appeared to be a sure-fired bet for a regular role with the Bruins.

Tyler Seguin: with all the hype I thought he become our version of Stamkos.
