thats a good point. Production in my opinion is the most telling fact. it tells you he has good hockey sense. give me a player who has great hockey sense and a knack for being in the right place at the right time over a guy with raw talent who can't figure out how to use it properly. cause for my money those guys who may not be blessed with world class raw skill find a way to excel with what they have more often than a pure talent whose mental game is missing finally smartens up.

A 20 year old is certainly going to be stronger than an 18 year old, holding size constant. I can understand you're point, and it's hardly worth arguing, but I expect a 20 year old still playing junior to put up points although not the extent Riendeau is to be sure. An 18 year old putting up 3 points a game is pretty damn special.

Riendeau will not get the same PPG in the pros but for a miracle. I do not think anyone is saying that like some replies might want to say.
What his stats tells me is that quite possibly he has something that could possibly be transferred to the pro game. That and the little bidding war merited the offer he got. Two thirds of a Luc Robitaille would be something to about.

Alexandrov and Arniel in Fold?

Today's Herald implies both may be signed for next season:

"The Bs have been trying unsuccessfully for two years to sign Russian defenseman Yuri Alexandrov, their second pick (37th overall) in the 2006 draft. But Alexandrov, who was selected ahead of Lucic, recently expressed to the team a desire to come to North America next season.

If things work out, hell be in our mix next year, general manager Peter Chiarelli said. The plan now is for him to be in Providence. With him its about building his body. Hes not the most robust of players - about 6-foot-1 and 180. Hes a puck-mover, smart, sees the ice, an efficient player, kind of like a Ference, but a bit bigger.

The Bs are also close to signing center Jamie Arniel, a fourth-rounder last summer.

Hes a good two-way center, really responsible, Chiarelli said. Claudes type of player.

That would be awesome if we got Alexandrov in North America.

After the Lashoff trade, he's easily our most talented D prospect.

Indeed, we need a Russian player in Boston. We're totally missing out!

Funny how the KHL is cutting salaries, and now all of a sudden Alexandrov wants to come to NA.

Would be great if he came over, we need a high end D prospect like him in the system.

I'm really happy to hear Alexandrov is willing to come to North America,I think he would help the Bruins big time in the near future and we lack D prospects big time! Get it done Chia

I'm all for Alexandrov coming over, I don't have any real confidence in any of our puck movers down in Providence, I've also really like Alexandrov for some reason, really hope someone isn't just trying to get my hopes up.

Last few years Providence has been prospect heaven but next year might take the cake.
Hamill, Lehtonen,Marchand ,Nelson, Knackstedt ,Marquardt, LoVecchio add Riendeau, Arniel Maybe Sauve and Bradford

On Defense Penner, McQuaid and Bods for sure and maybe Goulet , Reul ,Alexandrov and Kolomatis.


In Goal Regan, Courchaine and the dude from College

Wow. I don't care if he's 20. Those are some sick, sick numbers.

If the series with Shawnigan goes to 7 games, Riendeau could have a chance at breaking Claude Giroux's record of 51 points.

What's funny is that Giroux was also 20 last year when he put up those numbers but not many talk about his age.Anyways Riendeau is going to be a solid player,maybe never for the Bruins but I'm sure he could do very well in Providence.

Too bad he can't help the Bruins pp right now

Giroux and Riendeau were the same "age" (1988s) when they met in last year's final. Giroux outpointed him 14-4. Riendeau is not Claude Giroux.

Riendeau was on par points-wise last year with his fellow 1988 teammates Hugo Carpentier and Michael Dubuc who currently toil in the ECHL.

Right, well, if he were good before, he would have been picked somewhere in the draft. People are generally excited because he has had a huge spike in development and [I]may[I] turn out to be an NHL player. He led the QMJHL in scoring and is putting up simply amazing numbers in the playoffs. Even at his old age, he is a legit prospect.
