I wish we'd package him up for a winger. I've never been hi on him but I know some in here have. Good to hear that Spooner and Knight looked good. I really was hoping Svedberg would get the nod but, oh well.

**UPDATE** Just noticed the Baby B's play the CT Whale (20 minutes the other direction) on the 27th. Two tickets right behind the B's bench only $20 a piece :) Love the AHL prices
I believe in Jordan Caron!
Oh so he was drafted as a North American.....damn k thank

I wish him and koko would have exchanged places. It would have been nice for koko to build chemistry and Caron to play full time among men
One thing i noticed about Caron during the game was he looked SLOW. like he had cinder blocks tied to his skates. Does anyone remember how he played during the last couple games of the season? He used his body, speed, and took alot of shots...He looked like the kid everyone hoped he would be, in this game, complete opposite. It was like it was his first game playing against men, you would never of thought he did anything decent in the NHL.
Well for the past two years he never had a full time role in either league. He finally has his shot full time in the NHL and they go on strike....I'd be a bit disappointed

here are some point updates for some other guys:
Dougie Hamilton: 3 goals, 7 assists, 10 PTS in 11 games (CHL)
Alexander Khokhlachev: 1 goal, 1 assist, 2 PTS in 14 games (KHL)
Seth Griffith: 9 goals, 6 assists, 15 PTS in 8 games (CHL)
Anthony Camara: 9 goals, 3 assists, 12 PTS in 10 games (CHL)
Malcolm Subban: 5-2-1 record, 2.08 GGA, .934 SV%
for the two i have bolded, can anyone give insight on these two? I was looking at Griffith stats in the OHL and i mean, the kid last year had 45 goals 40 assists and 85 points in 68 games.....how'd we get him in the 5th?
And on Camara, i thought we took him later like 4-5 and figured he was a fighter/thug-type player...he seems like he has found a little scoring touch, 9 goals thru the first 10 games, and didn't realize he was a 3rd round pick....
Seems like getting passed over in the 2011 draft lit a fire under Griffith.
Not many teams took a chance either, we probably wouldn't have if we didn't already draft Knight.
Kid plays hard that's for sure, we'll see how far he gets.
Isn't KoKo back in the CHL
Caron had a Hatty the other night. Hedberg has won back to back games. Spooner and Bourque are playing well. I can't wait to use my flex tix!
great to hear....Lets get svedberg more time in net, seeing Hutchinson isnt going past the AHL (at least here)

If the link doesn't work.
is there a reason the P-Bruins keep playing Hutchinson, he sucks.....he's 0-3, and last game against Connecticut he got raped...4 goals on 13 shots. Svedberg came in to relieve him, i mean really ???? oh and his GAA is 4.03, that's horrible
Was at the game tonight and I'd like to say this first Hutchinson ****ING SUCKS!! The guy single handedly cost the P-Bruins the game. Send the guy to the ECHL or something, I've never seen such week rebounds and goals let in.
Bruce Cassidy actually gave me a stare down after the 4th goal :laugh: Being right behind the bench (and a loud person) I yelled "it's about time coach, welcome to the game". It probably wasn't unnecessary and I apologized after the game for being a dick. On to a few thoughts.
Niklas Svedberg - The Good: Stays square to the shooter, gets big in the butterfly, good net coverage, keeps in head on a swivel and rebound control is pretty good. The Bad: Struggled smothering shots in the chest and puck play was questionable (gave up a goal playing the puck)
Jordan Caron - The Good: He scored The Bad: Seemed disinterested in the game, was knocked off the puck easily, struggled to make the smart pass and skated like he has cement in his skates.
Justin Florek - The Good: Size (6'4 200lb), works in the dirty areas, has two way potential. The Bad: Not psychical for his size and below average acceleration.
Ryan Spooner - The Good: Better then advertised, PP QB potential, amazing vision, tough to knock off the puck, Seguin like passer, slick/soft hands, good 1 on 1 skills. The Bad: Needs to use his shot more and lead the attack into the offensive zone.
Overall Experience - after going down 4-1 the Baby B's seemed to play timid and lack in psychical play. They lack an enforcer who will stand up for players when other teams take liberties. They battled back to get within 5-3 but it wasn't enough. Best part of the night was talking to Spoons and getting a few RT's after the game.
