    Give Hamilton a 9 game try out?

    After a horrendous October, and alot of the Bruins playing complacently.  Why not give Hamilton a 9 game try out? 

    From all the accounts I read on this board, he is doing well?

    with his skating skills, he could be a help with the transition game,

    if not, well, send him back to juinor, and he benefits from the experience.  

    your thoughts, I say give it a shot, no real risk involved here.

    He's good where he is but he's not NHL ready yet.

    Except it doesn't work this way.  Once they're assigned to junior, they can only be recalled on an emergency basis (if I'm remembering this correctly).  A lame start would meet the criteria for an emergency.

    If the Stanley Cup Champs have to turn to an 18 yr old to fix their problems, then there are many more issues here than meets the eye.

    Sorry, I can't agree with this. He is exactly where he should be. WJC coming, regular shift, and he is still growing into his body. 

    Last point. You have to weigh the chance that you could ruin his career against a very short term gain, if any at all.

    You know, I don't think I agree with this because of the entry level contract ramifications (if he stays), but I have to say, it's not that crazy of an idea.  Very interesting thought ocram...

    Thanks, I overlooked this.  But, are you missing a "not" in the last sentence?  Or am I missing the point?

    He's not NHL ready phyically yet certainly, mentally maybe. I saw him at training camp signing autographs, he's as skinny a Krejci and over 6 foot 5. He doen't have the muscle to win physical battles at the NHL level.

    Also, there's no point in drawing him into a bad situation where no one is playing well and people who get sat resent him or it.

    Yes Bandg, I agree completely. This kid is our future as much as Ray was back in the 70's, and we have to let him mature. Ray Bourque was already a horse at 18, but Dougie needs to fill out. He'll be awesome maybe as soon as next year. But for now, let him dominate for a while.
