Nah, Pastrnak stinks now.
Thanks for the find. Pretty amusing.
Happy Dominion Day, kytem2. Enjoy some BBQ(have an extra serving for me, will ya?) and fireworks. Have a safe weekend. Cheers to you as well.
lol funny, I didn't know they wanted him.
The B's address speed and skill on the RW which is an area of concern...so I am happy. Plus PJ axelsson must have seen a lot of this kid and that has to stand for something.
Yes, the league that produced the current ROTY and a likely future ROTY in Drouin is a "garbage" league.
I don't mind the pick. Basically Krejci in wing form...just don't put him on the wing with Krejci, or neither guy will ever shoot.
Imagine if you will, this guy on a line with Krejci and Eriksson...all they do is cycle for the puck while this plays:
wondering out loud if this assessment is based on you having watched all his games this past year or strictly by reading various interwebz reports??
Me??? I don`t know, having watched 3+ decades of drafts, when it comes to picks/players whom I have watched exactly 0 minutes of, I tend to take a wait and see approach
will the hope be for him to play in Providence next season or stay in Europe for another year or two?
Oh, c'mon. Like there are any non-mad fishing tournaments! Where do ya think they get those crazy singing filet o' fishies?!
Kid looks like he could be interesting. Moxie. Speed. Crafty skill. Good IQ, judging from some of his passes in that reel. Just the kind of stuff people were wishing we had against the habs in the POs.
And he's 17 playing with men? Lots of potential there, sounds like.
As much as the draft is a crap shoot to a fair degree, this seems like a good pick for the B's.
The Bruins web site has Pastrnak listed at 6' and 198 pounds. That's the same height as Krejci and 10 pounds heavier. http://bruins.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=724260&navid=DL|BOS|home
Keith Gretzky says he plays a two-way game as a wing or center, and is willing to go into the corners. Sounds big enough for a skill player to me.
â€œHeâ€™s a good, skilled player that plays two-way [hockey], and he can play either center or right wing,â€ said Bruins director of amateur scouting Keith Gretzky. â€œHe handles the puck really well, and protects the puck well. He competes really hard and heâ€™s got good skill. We felt like we needed some more skill.
â€œHeâ€™s full of energy. He moved away when he was young because he wanted to be a hockey player. He plays hard on the puck, and he competes. There are some guys that can score 50 goals, but they get shy about going into the corners. Heâ€™s not one of those guys.â€
Looks like Jordan Caron.
My only complaint about the European prospects is that it takes away a bit of enjoyment away from being a fan when it's so difficult to follow their progress. The prospect thread has gone from being an active one following Spooner, Knight, Hamilton, Subban to one with sporadic updates.
That being said, seems like a very solid pick.
Yes, but he's already playing against a similar level of competition in Sweden.
Ya how can you not be excited after watching that? If he stays healthy he's got 3rd line RW written all over him in 2 years. I don't want to say more just yet because I don't like putting that kind of expectation on a young player. But we don't have a lot of creative shooters like this kid.
btw I say give him 1-2 years in the P. I'd like to see him in Boston as a 20 year old ideally. But high side of 19 could be ok too if he puts on a bit of weight.
Still, get him over and let him learn the bruins system in providence.
Red Line loves him if its not already done and someone wants to see its entirety I'll be glad to type it up. I've not liked two of the last drafts and went back on HF and thankfully was able to see my thoughts at the time saying as such. This I really like. I also liked the two picks before us and the one by Montreal. Very happy they made this read a lot about him the past month
Great pick by the Bruins, Lets hope for some more good fortune today.
Some nice picks , move a few guys to open up some cap space and we can all be listening to some tunes tomorrow.
Chiarelli speaks highly of him. Says "We talked a lot about trying to move up to get him"
Wow if they liked him that much, they must have been pumped to get him where they did.
I wanted Kempe but this pick makes sense.. hopefully it pays dividends down the line.
I think he makes the cut this September
CB kiss of death confirmed.
I really don't know anything about him so I'm a wait and see. Does anyone know if he is able to play in Prov. next year? I know most of the guys drafted will go back to their Jr. teams or college but since he's European I don't know the rules. Looking forward to today.
