    In response to heyoo's comment:

     

    And if Khudobin does skate off for that tax free money of Russia. There is always 6'3" Lars Volden to try n convince to come over as well.  2011 Bruins draft pick 24 GP in the SM-Liiga league- .924 SV%. That would be some nice competition in Providence.

    2012-13    [FIN] Jokipojat Joensuu Mestis    12   0.916       
    2012-13    [FIN] Espoo BluesSM-liiga            12   0.931

     24 games...


    Bold read



    Chiarelli to Volden "how many games did you play last year ?" Volden "TWENTY FOUR".

     



    My statement said he only played 12 games in the sm-liiga and you said no 24. You were wrong read your post it is in bold. The finland2 league is not the sm-liiga. Do you want to start counting

    Volden played 24 games in the 2012-2013 season not 12.

    OHL player rankings as of March 7th.  Three Bruins prospects in the top 20.  Camara is one of them.  Thopught he'd fade away by now.  Good for him.

    Re: Early Bruins 2012-2013 Prospect Reports

    Best news about Khokhlachev in a while, for me anyway, comes from the latest Hockey News Future Watch: "What pleased the Bruins was that, while not losing his offensive instincts, he has 'improved his two-way game, play in his own end, and his competitiveness' Benning said."  "Bostons sees his skills and vision as similar to David Krejci".  They have him rated ahead of Spooner and behind Hamilton and Subban among Bruin prospects.

    Also in that Future Watch (Hamilton is the cover boy), a couple of interesting lines about drafting and busts.  I thought I'd put them up given how often we discuss the vagaries of drafting 18 yr olds. 

    From SJ GM Doug Wilson: "Once we acquire a playerr, it's our respnsibility to give them the tools to succeed...We're in the business of building careers.  We don't believe in 'churning and burning'.  A player isn't going t naturally get better on his own."  Nice to see emphasis on that side of the equation, and maybe if we're criticizing Chiarelli's record of developing picks, it's that side of the house that needs more attention?

    From Flames assistant GM John Weisbrod: In any given draft, 10-15 percent of the players will have the natural talents to make the NHL regardless of the quality of development provided to them and another 40-45 percent will never be god enough professionally to play at the NHL level.  That leaves 40 percent of players who could go either way, depending on the manner in which their organization handles them.  I guess this means that in a perfect world, the top of the first round should succeed on talent, the 2-4th rounds are pliable, and the last three are players without sufficient talent. 

    Craig Button then tries to excuse his terrible record as a GM in Calgary by saying it's "nobody's fault" when things don't work out: "it's just a mis-read".  That's apropos of nothing; I just don't like Button.

    Weisbrod also said projections of who falls in what category vary widely, and that Central Scouting's first round list included players the Flames wouldn't have drafted in any round.

    I wonder what "the manner in which their organization handles them" actually means.

    And I would break down that 40-45% who will never be good enough to play in the NHL further, there is a 10/15% of them who should probably never have been drafted.

    Of course there is.


    The talent pool is only so deep. It's a 7 round draft. Should teams just pass on their picks in later rounds ? 

    Once it gets into later rounds teams have the options of taking Joe Blow vs. Joe Schmoe. Sometimes one of those Joes turns out. 

    Either they do or they don't. What's the big deal with this ?

    It's a process all teams have to go through with hopes of finding a Joe who will make it.

    Spooner is the best Bruins prospect not wearing a spoked B. Cunningham is a close 2nd, just got his 20th goal for Providence this weekend. The baby Bs are going to be stacked for the playoffs when Camara and KoKo arrive, can't wait.

    Attended the Ice Dogs-Barrie Colts game yesterday.

    Bruins fans have to be excited with Anthony Camara's improvements in his game. Hits, fights, stick skills have improved immensely and his compete level is where you want it to be.

    And with regards to his skating ? His billets must have a rink in the back yard. Nothing to complain about with this aspect of his game. He has really good speed.

    P.S. And this for BsLegion.

    Mark Scheifele had 3 goals and 2 assists.

    This might not happen at all . Barrie is strong and might have a long playoff run.

    I don't think you need to break it down further, BadHab.  I think saying 40% don't have the talent to make it means that in an ideal world, you wouldn't draft them.  Because they don't have the talent to make it.

    Now, if you're thinking about the way the breakdown is far from ideal?  That's a different deal, because there are always a few guys who slip throught the cracks and prove that they do have the talent.  Guys like Tanner Pearson suddenly break out in the last year of draft eligibility and go in the first round when they could have been had with a 7th round flier two years in a row.  Is this really much different than Lundqvist, Zetterberg or Datsyuk going in the rounds where you don't expect that the players will succeed, ever?

    Last year, the OHL playoffs ended on May 11 and the Memorial Cup on May 27.  P-Bruins would start the playoffs some time around April 25, so if the Colts make the OHL finals, he would be available around mid-way through the second round.  If they make the Memorial Cup, he wouldn't be available probably until the middle or end of the third round. 

    Heck of a year for the development system if Camara plays in the Memorial Cup and still gets to join Providence for the Calder Cup finals....

    and that's thanks to Camara.  While Scheifele was trying to be a NHLer Camara was still putting up some pretty good numbers.

    Looking forward to Memorial cup.

    p..s what's the latest news on Jared Knight ?

    That would be very cool and interesting if it has happened already. I would bet it has happened before.

    @MarkDivver

    "Butch Cassidy says he's heard nothing bout possible tryout/contract for Alex Fallstrom, whose Harvard yr. is over. Acquired from Minn. in 09. Jared Knight (hamstring) has skated w/red no-contact jersey last 2 days. Don't expect to see him in a game until April, assuming no setbacks. Carter Camper (shoulder) cleared to play and will return on Friday when @AHLBruins can jump over Springfield to 2nd place in Eastern Conf."

    The longest hamstring injury in the history of sports. What a lineup the PBruins will have for the playoffs, going to be interesting.
