    I am excited by this pick. Admittedly I did not study this draft and have particular favorites like I usually would, but what I am reading sounds good and he is liked by people here whose opinion I respect. One question, in the RLR write up, were the caps added by a poster here or were they included in the original text, and if so how common is that or were they emphasizing that extremely?

    To Kirk; good luck, be safe, come back soon, keep up the good work and thank you again for your service.

    So am I. When I saw him on "Behind The B" I jumped right out of my chair I was so happy to see him with the Bruins again :)

    Wendy too :) . He was down by us for one of the games this past season and waved to us (he was in the tunnel near us). He remembered the two old ladies next to the bench :laugh:

    Nice to see PJ is helping to pick our future B's.

    If this kid develops as per expectations, I'd love to see him start on Yeti's wing. Lots of puck control and drive there. That would be a line that's hard to contain.

    An all-Swede line? :) Fun to think about, but the kid's just 18. We'll see.

    We're not edmonten, we dont look to put the puck in the pretteist way possible, we look to get it in the ugliest and most painfull way. If you tell me this kid can do something other then bounce off people and try to dangle, i want some of what you're smoking.

    Our best prospect with size and grit is florek, ****ing sad

    Since your icon states you're located in Massachusetts, how did you manage to watch Pastrnak play?

    ICYMI, here's the Red Line report, supplied by DKH:

    Looks like he has some good hands and is pretty shifty - like the grit I saw in those vids as well.

    Sorry if it has been mentioned in the thread already, but what's the best estimate on Pastrnak's NHL debut?

    Since no one answered. My view, David Pastrnak resembles a right-handed, taller version of Mats Zuccarello of NYR.

    I'd say maybe Ales Hemsky or Mads Zuccarello (a larger version that is). Leaning more to the Zuccarello comparison.

    Perhaps even more interesting, Pastrnak left a single mother household in the Czech Republic for Sweden at 15 years old to chase his hockey dream, and plays with that kind of inspired zeal each time he takes the ice. It was that spirit and energy – along with the hands, the shot and the skating wheels – that attracted the Bruins scouts to him in the first place.

    “He’s a good, skilled player that plays two-way [hockey], and he can play either center or right wing,†said Bruins director of amateur scouting Keith Gretzky. “He handles the puck really well, and protects the puck well. He competes really hard and he’s got good skill. We felt like we needed some more skill.

    “He’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. He’s not one of those guys.â€

    Good read. Kid got some guts leaving home at 15 and has worked for everything in his young life.

    In this year's Montreal series, I would have liked someone to put the puck into the net any damn way they desired! The kid is 18, he is 6' 182 lbs. Is this really what you would consider small, especially for an 18 year old kid??
    Some of you are just hilarious. Here's what the Bruins should do I guess. Get rid of their entire scouting staff. Don't need 'm. Save a ton of money on their salaries. Simply pick up the central scouting report and draft the biggest available player for all of their selections. lol

    Pastrnak is Czech however this line would still be extremely fun to watch.

    Can't wait to see him in camp this September. I hope they put him with Krejci and Lucic for the hell of it, sounds like he'd enjoy playing with Krejci.

    This is just my opinion, could be dead wrong. Didn't know much about him until yesterday.

    I'd guess two years minimum. Will probably play in Sweden next year, maybe the year after. Depending on how he pans out in those 1/2 years, either a couple more years in Providence after that, maybe up and down a few times between Boston and Providence, then hopefully he becomes a good player with us. :) Could be wrong, since he didn't come from juniors, he's eligible for Providence this coming season. Could go right there if he decides that's what he wants to do. Can't say anything definite so the best indication will probably be rookie camp.

    Have to take your time with the 25th overall picks. A lot of the time they turn out to be nothing special anyway, putting them in bad situations too early can ruin them. From the first look at him, looks like he needs to put on some more weight and get more experience playing against tougher and stronger competition. He'll get that in Sweden and/or the AHL. Two-way play needs a bit of work as well, according to some of the prospect sites.

    Red Lines write up on him sounds a lot like the report on Knight a few years back , no ?

    He might not be at big boy camp. We'll have to wait and see what the F.O. and coaching staff want to do with him. He's eligible to play in the AHL, but he could just as easily spend another year in Sweden.

    Right, I'd rather see him in Providence learning our system and so I can watch him play. A lot easier to keep track of a prospect in Providence then it would be if he was in Sweden. Plus who knows, if he does impress in Providence he has the chance to move up to the big club.
