Small group of Boston Bruins CHL prospects possess loads of skill and grit

It was a tumultuous year for Boston Bruins prospects playing junior hockey in Canada and the States.

Thanks for the update Bill. We are fortunate you took over the HF role for the Bruins prospects.

This is a nice group of prospects. It will be interesting to see how the older group plays in Providence next season.

Great read...looks like if the Bruins will be able to properly develope these kide...speed will no longer be an issue.

Maybe one day we will hear of the "Randall Spooner all Knight" line.

I know stupid joke.

I'm really looking forward to seeing how Craig Cunningham develops. Was fortunate to watch him play since he was a rookie with the Vancouver Giants.

Given what I've seen of him in his over-age season in the Dub, I'd be surprised if he has a tough transition to the AHL.

Glad to see we have such promising forward prospects ready soon.
This means they can walk away from Ryder and Recchi and try for Richards, even if it means trading Krejci who is clearly not a #1 center. If he sticks around as a #2 then great but they need a guy to be THE GUY short term and the kids to grow into that role.
It's good to see the B's grab some top end talent and not D men with character.
See Mark Stuart instead of Corey Perry and others for details.
Chia has done well with the drafting and I can't wait to see the B's Mach II and the shift to a more talented puck possesion type Detroit-esque game.
Good things are coming

But I can't help but turn to one thing for these stories to come true.

The coaching at both levels needs to improve.

I have yet to read what I would consider a promising article on how Murray coaches and then reading what Colborne had to say makes me wonder if Murray is the guy to coach our young guys.

And well then there is Julien. But I'm not sidetracking this conversation with that topic.

It's great to read this stuff and the future does look very promising.

Murray was dismissed as Providence's coach at the end of their season.

I guess I don't have to worry about that concern anymore then..

Any news on who might be hired ? Gordon ?
Wishful thinking. I like him for Boston.

Great Article. I hate the CHL rule about players needing to be sent back if they're under 20. I understand they need their revenues and such but there should be a rule where a team gets 2 or 3 exceptions that can play in the AHL. Theres no point in sending some players back to dominate junior where they could spend their time and get better in the AHL.

Sorry for rant but it sucks that if Spooner and Knight don't make the club next year they have to go back to junior.

Agreed. It's probably the only reason Seguin didn't return back for another year in the CHL. Why not let the young guys develop in the system that they're going to be playing for very shortly?

On the other side though, it sure helps with length of contracts and how they start when they officially start playing for the team.

Is it? After the stinker he had with the Islanders, I thought he might be lucky to land in the AHL and not have to go back to juniors.

This season's coaching deck is a long way from being fully shuffled, there might still be some options that open up.

Id rather have Emerson Etem than Knight. The Ducks got two guys who should be Bruins property if we had a more competent GM in Etem and Fowler, that woulda been a draft that was talked about for the ages with Seguin and Spooner in there.

Nice job on the article.

How do you figure they could have got Seguin, Fowler, Etem and Spooner?

Yeah, if we didn't do the Horton trade we would have had 2/15/32/45
but Fowler went 12th and Etem went 29th so unless we passed on Seguin for Fowler, and didn't get Horton at all....

I think everyone except the Major Junior teams do. I have to think this will be addressed in the next CBA?

This is THE draft this team MUST go out and get themselves a D-man who can anchor the blueline for years to come. That D-man does not have to be an elite PMD, I want a guy who when Z starts to slow down will be ready to step in and be the shut down man to go to, and that man for this fan has been Hamilton for a long time.

I contact all GM`s (as I`m sure Chia does anyway) and sniff about who`m they are taking, I then offer them DK & the 9th pick for their pick.

I don`t come close to re-signing Kabby, I go for an option that is cheaper. I pounce on Richards, Rex/Ryder/Paille or Kelly gone, one of the kids above WILL make this team (I`m guessing Knight)
