Rob Bellamy -- Frozen Four (Maine)

"One Black Bears player to watch in the Frozen Four is sophomore Rob Bellamy (PHI). The gritty, hard working forward has played in all but two games this season and has blossomed into one of Maine’s most relentless and difficult players to play against. He has racked up 15 points (six goals, nine assists) thus far and leads the team in penalty minutes with 75. Two of Maine’s strengths this season have been play along the boards and willingness to get physical. They’re also areas that Bellamy thrives in."

If some of these guys pan out the Flyers could be a really frustrating team in two or three years.

Good point, with Bellamy and Downie coming down the pike it sounds as if they have two real gritty agitators.

The scouting department for the Flyers is solid.

Panasonic Youth left some responses from USCHO.com about Bellamy on the "Flyers Prospects Update" thread, page 13.

I don't know. I'm still not sold on Bellamy. Players like him are a dime a dozen. Freddy Cabana is basically the same player, but with more offense. Yeah, it's nice to have a collection of checkers, but we need goal scoring wingers. We have enough grinders throughout our system. Personally, I hope Bellamy begins to start developing an offensive game to go along with the great checking game he already has. Right now, I'd say that he's probably a little too one dimensional.

He was drafted in a weak draft, and was never supposed to have a real offensive game.

Yeah, but Cabana was also drafted that year and he plays the same game but with some sort of offensive upside. You'd figure Bellamy would be contributing something. To be honest, we've got nothing more than a more aggressive, less offensive version of Radio.

Bellamy has 3 more years to find an offensive game at Maine and he will definetaly get the playing time.

How is that possible? Radio doesn't contribute much offense as it is...and if he's more aggressive, I'll take it.

he doesnt contribute much offence because he plays on the 3rd/4th line and doesnt get much, if any, PP time

I don't feel that Bellamy has much offensive upside either, but relative to Cabana, it's about the same. You can't judge players in two different leagues, with two different styles of play. The fact is is that Bellamy is a much better hitter, an entirely more physical player than Cabana. Both have only average hands and an undeveloped head for the offensive game.

Meh. I watched the Maine/Wisc. game last night and wasn't impressed. He seemed to spend a lot of time sprawled on the ice, as Wisconsin took it to them pretty good.

He got knocked down a lot, didn't hit back much and missed a couple of opportunities at point blank range. I don't expect much more than possibly a role player.....

...for the Phantoms.

I just dont know what people see in Rob Bellamy and his pro potential. I guess I am missing something. I have seen Maine play quite a bit living here in the northeast, 3 or 4 years from now i see him in the AHL with the Phantoms or some other AHL team.

I believe you may have been watching the wrong player.....Bellamy had about 6 or 7 hits.

Oh, my bad. I must've been watching Bill Bellamy, that awful actor guy. Rob Bellamy? Oh, yeah, hell of a player. A one man wrecking crew, thanks.

Since most of the Maine players were usually crumpled up in a heap on the ice, my meager brain and shoddy eyes must've been confused. I'm good with colors, but numbers and letters frighten and confuse me.

Appreciate your correction.

Hey! Thanks!

You're simply wrong, it's ok. Happens to a lot of people.

Now, nobody said Bellamy was a great player. But he had quite a few hits and was very physical that game, like he is in every game. I can think of no other explantion for your comment that he didn't hit back much other than you were watching the wrong player.

Wow. Wish I had a dollar for everytime you came away from a conversation impressed with yourself.

During the game that I was watching he and Maine were clearly overmatched by Wisc. For all of his hype of being a physical presence, I wasn't impressed. While I'll admit to not keeping a running tally of his hits, I'm pretty sure that I know I wasn't impressed.

So relax, drive downtown and over the bridge to ABC brewing and have a red on me. And step away from the college hockey hit tracking chart. You need to get out more.

As for me, I have already requested that ESPN introduce a "glowing Bellamy" much like FOX's "glowing puck" so that morons such as I can follow him around the ice in the future and not draw your ire.

PS: This should not be confused with a "glowing Potulny" which is very itchy, but treatable with natural herbs.
