I don't know about you, but I kind of expected results like that. Bradley is in his 10th year as the B's lead hand in scouting. With the quality guys he's selected, its only a matter of time until things click. Looking at our current mix I feel we are still a few years away of rounding out the complete roster top to bottom. The best part about that equation includes guys like Bergeron, Sturm, Savard, and Chara. Those longer contracts are going to pay dividends down the road.

Maybe we should make Bradley a cake and present it to him in Columbus?

For the Mark Stuart haters, he's ranked 47th overall in the top 50. An interesting list that I don't necessarily agree with, but was wondering what the rest of youze think.



When did the hockey futures issue come out???

We've been climbing those rankings for awhile. I've always felt like Bradley & Co. don't get enough credit for doing what they've done each year with our picks. It's nice to see them get some well deserved recognition.

Which Sigalet is it?

For the Mark Stuart haters, he's ranked 47th overall in the top 50. An interesting list that I don't necessarily agree with, but was wondering what the rest of youze think.

I also thought the list was a tad bit out of order. Although I like Stuart, so far what I have seen from him I don't think he will become the defensemen that was once projected. I am not jumping ship on him yet though.

I do agree that Kalus is our best forward and I will stick by my guns regardless of his lack of production this year in tthe AHL( I thought it would ahve been better). I watched him like a hawk all camp long and I thought he was head and shoulders above all of our prospects on the ice. I even think that he was better then Kessel. I still think Kalus, if he had been brought in slow this year like Kessel would have as many points as Phil this year.

Here would be my rankings in terms of potential just next year or the year after.
1.)Rask
2.)Lashoff
3.)Kalus
4.)Krejci
5.)Sigalet
6.)Stuart
7.)Karsums
8.)Lucic
9.)Alexandrov
10.)Marchand

Walter doesnt make my cut, although I think he will be with the big club and he will be her much sooner then some on the list. I just don't think his ceiling is as high as some.

I was very impresssed with Sigalet at camp and I believe he is a better fit for this NHL then Stuart. Flashes of Alberts went through my head when I saw his size, skating ability...etc. I will let you know that I was one of just a few touting Alberts the year he went from BC to baby B's. I lived in lowell that year and saw him a few times and knew right away he had "it". If you could go find my posts from them I can guarantee you I was singing his praise and many thought I was out of my mind and said how can you possibly rank Alberts over "stuart or Jurcina", I may be jumping the gun but I think we can say as of now he is the most solid of those 3.

I see Sigalet being that next guy, behind Lashoff of course.

They said the reason the B's jumped in the rankings so drastically was the deal for Rask and drafting Kessel.

I also feel our depth as seriously improved, they didnt speak much of that.

i'm not sure where you're going with this - alberts is much bigger than sigalet. in fact, sigalet's biggest issue is probably beefing up more, and keeping the weight on.

Sigalet reminds me of Alberts in terms of carrying the puck, great skating ability. I know Siaglet is not nearly as big as Alberts but he is not a small defensemen by any means. If you see him out on the ice he has a lot of similar features as Alberts did when I saw him 3 years ago in Lowell(right after BC call up).

Sigalet actaully played the body very well in camp. Now I haven't seen him since then, so maybe it was just the adreniline of being in and NHL camp that had him playing that way but I can only go by what I saw those 4 times I saw camp this past summer.

I'm glad you commented on the main point of my post though nugs... Nice discussion.

no need to take it so personally - i just didn't understand where you were going with the comparison. to me, they aren't similar at all...but everyone sees things differently. no offense.
