Gronvaldt for conditional 15th round pick. He's bounced around alot. What's the "conditional" term referred to?

Usually conditional requires the player to either make the team or play a certain number of games.If he doesn,t play then Bulls get the pick back.

Interesting...this could impact Snelling/Bignell unless other D trades happen,

Trades

I said there was gonna be a trade for a D and I also said T-man will be moved for probably another D or a pick. In the end Bulls wanted 1D and 1 pick but you don't always get what you want.

Did anyone else hit up the 50% sale at Red Beards? Got a black Bulls jersey with the old school logo for $70, no doubt that will be my jersey of choice this year.

Looks like Belleville added Daniil Zharkov through the import draft. A big Russian winger who is eligible for this years draft, looks like he played in the USHL so he should be a good bet to report for the Bulls.

Zharkov looks like a Beast! Just read a great story on him.
http://www.intelligencer.ca/ArticleD...aspx?e=3193293

Although he took a similar USHL route to Caps Prospect Stanislav Galiev (who tore up the USHL before being drafted to the SeaDogs in the Q)--his game is closer to Ovechkins.
I would have liked to have seen a bigger offensive output from him in that league, however, I gather that his team was dreadfull (with resect of course, i dont want to offend any Tri City Storm fans)

The bulls should be middle of the pack this year. They will have an experienced team with a lot of speed. It should be a fun year to watch the bulls this year.!

Bulls make two trades today so far.

Garrett Hooey to Belleville for Alex Basso and a 3rd in 2015.

Tyson Teichman to Erie for Brady Austin

Trade today with Sarnia, what can you tell us about Alex Basso? A press release described him as, "Known for his offensive flair, Basso played 116 career games as a Bull, scoring 8 times while providing 30 assists."

Why is Belleville moving him?

Garret Hooey was a second round pick for the Sting that plays center - most likely being moved because he would be having trouble getting ice time with the recent signings. I have no knowledge of it, but I wouldn't be surprised if he had asked for the trade.

Bulls need offense and though Hooey was buried behind all of the Stings veteran firepower,he has a track record of being a point producer.He played for Bulls assistant Jake Grimes at the under 17 tournament and Grimes is very enthusiastic about what he brings to the Bulls.
The Bulls picked up Austin who is more physical and harder to play against than Basso.He also has an offensive upside.The Bulls strength and depth is in net making Teichmann available.
Basso is a good player but the Bulls desperately need offense and hopefully Hooey will help.

On the Sarnia thread, it was rumoured that Hooey requested a trade. People are sad to see him go and nobody in Sarnia is discounting his talent and eventual development to a top notch player in this league. You are correct in stating that there isn't a lot of room on forward. It is very doubtful he would play on the second line this year and in fact would get challenged for time on the third line. Given what I have seen, he should be a first or second line player - just wasn't going to get that opportunity in Sarnia.

Best of luck in Belleville Garrett.

With Teichmann being traded does this solidify Subban as the starter or does than depend on if Daniel Altshuller decides to play for the Bulls?

For me Altshuller will be the better of the two at the OHL level, but at this point he has to prove it.

Im sure it will be an open camp, with both being given the opportunity to start.

Altshuller hasn't confirmed he's going to the Bulls yet so hopefully Gaunce can be in his ear at the Ivan Hlinka.

Belleville sends Andy Bathgate to Plymouth for a 3rd in '13 and '14.

Chartrand picked up from Barrie. I guess this means no Altshuller?

Bulls indicate Daniel Altshuller unwilling to sign, wants to be a No. 1. Potential for trade

Strong to Saginaw for a 5th in 2014, now the pieces are all in place for a great season.

Wow! The number of trades, signings and movement on this team indicates to me someone is trying to dramatically change the look of this team and quick. Question remains is a knee-jerk reaction, a message to the existing players or just simple and smart GM'ing?

Getting back to Hooey. He will be ok, give him time to develop, he didn't get that chance in Sarnia under Mac, just like alot of other players. The only question is, did he work hard enough during the break?

The Vets reported to the Yardmen today without a couple of players. What's happening in Bell-Vegas?

Snelling, Kaminsky opt out
Bulls who split last season with Wellington are no-shows at camp
By Paul Svoboda
Posted 9 hours ago
Two players who saw limited action with the Belleville Bulls last season will not be at training camp this year.

Seventeen-year-old defenceman Darryl Snelling and forward Jan Kaminsky, who turns 18 in October, were both absent when veterans reported to Yardmen Arena Monday.

According to Bulls GM-coach George Burnett, Snelling has opted to leave the OHL while Kaminsky is seeking an opportunity with the Saginaw Spirit and has been given permission to attend their camp. If Kaminsky earns a position with the Western Conference club, said Burnett, a deal would be worked out.

Snelling, a six-foot-two rearguard, was a third-round selection of the Bulls at the 2010 OHL draft from the Mississauga Reps. The native of Ajax dressed for six regular season and three playoff games last season.

In 32 games with Belleville's Jr. A affiliate in Wellington, Snelling had one assist and 10 PMs for the Dukes.

Kaminsky also played for the Dukes last season, dressing for 25 regular season games (2-5-7) and 16 OJHL playoff contests (2-2-4). He also played for Wellington at the Dudley Hewitt Cup Central Canada championship and RBC Cup national championship in Camrose, Alberta.

In 21 games with the Bulls, Kaminsky earned two assists.

The six-foot, 173-pound forward was drafted by Belleville in 2008 (14th round) from Atlanta's TPH Thunder. His father, Yan Kaminsky, is a former NHLer and Russian League all-star with Moscow Dynamo.

I thought Kaminsky looked pretty decent in the games at the end of the year. Playing for the Dukes seemed to help his game, but he didn't get alot of points there from what I recall.


Another kid that started with the bulls very young that didn't "develop"


what can you say about the issues in Belleville that haven't already been said?

Kamenski was a 14th round pick. The fact that they turned in a 14th round pick into a roster player for a year is a win.
