LWOS Scouting Report
Welcome to Boston
Here we go
Next best ranked defenseman, gotta have defence. Never have enough of it.
In 7 years, it will be consensus that the Bruins took the best defenseman in this draft.
He's the next Alex Pietrangelo.
I'll be quite happy if that's the case!
Completely reasonable pick.
As Donny said, you can never have enough defensemen... especially ones that can skate like Vaakanainen.
Sweet name. I like the pick. Hope he develops quick.
Another young D to the prospect core:
Carlo+McAvoy already on the team.
Krug only 26y.
They hit only with one of those 4 and the top-6 looks good for years. At one point, the Bruins will be in prime opportunity to do a Jones-Johansen type of deal.
Well atleast finally I got a Finnish prospect to follow
Hate the pick based solely on the basis his last name is too expensive to put on a jersey
Welcome to Boston kiddo
You guys aren't serious are you? Another prospect buried I out ranks and everyone thinks this is great for our team.
Dude's name is like a terrible hand of Scrabble
There's always some one to **** all over anything this team does.
Try saying his name five times fast while drunk.....I'm having rouble saying it just once!
Seriously though, with Zboril and other young guys behind him still up in the air, as far as surefire NHL caliber careers go, I guess it doesn't hurt to add more ammo to the clip, so to speak. As I said in the draft thread, I would've thought the forwards corps was in need of a bit more depth, but what do I know.
Maybe this fella will surprise us all and become what everyone was hoping Colin Miller would become.
Wasted pick, 50th by red line report. Skater with little offensive upside. Terrible. Not physical, no offense. Just drafted John Michel Liiles.
Sweeney needs to go.
Add him to the over hyped prospects and we will be lucky if he plays 80 games for Bruins.
Donny has shown a talent evalution skill that we have to acknowledge. He gets talent..
Solid pick, no need to complain about that one. Lots of D in the pool
I'll bet your allowance you've never seen this kid let alone heard his name before
What a time to be alive.
