    To practice and be ready to go?

    Is this your first year ever watching hockey?

    The great Tommy Cross got to play last year.

    Just googled this looks like most teams will carry

    4 or 5 forwards

    3 or 4 dmen

    1 or 2 goalies

    So some of these guys will be told to stick around and skate.

    Bruins currently have 3 forwards and 1 dman.

    Donato
    Wingels
    Gionta
    Holden

    Pick and choose 3/4 more to stick around.

    I’m guessing
    Czarnik
    Swarez
    Cross
    Postma
    McIntire

    Are hanging around til mid June.

    Nobody said everyone ?!?

    In fact you singled out a post specifically asking for Czarnik...

    I’ll move on now. Hopefully we don’t see any of these Black Aces and they get their day with the cup.

    Blidh is probably nhl ready. He has the upside of a 4th liner though. I wouldn’t expect much more than that.

    JFK has a good chance to make the team next year for the 3LC role.

    Because there are at least 4-5 better options for the 4th line already.

    Not really. Not his game.

    I believe Blidh will become a FA in July. There are several ahead of him in line for roster spots. I haven't read many glowing reports on JFK yet. He' steady, good hockey IQ, etc. But nothing that puts him far above the competition.

    Shame, he is exactly the guy to be doing what Marchand is doing and leave him to get his head on straight.

    Blidh is restricted. I believe they will tender him an offer and he will fight it out with few other guys for 4th line left side/extra forward. I think he has an excellent chance to make the team if Schaller doesn’t resign which I believe he won’t.

    Should I be shocked at the amount of support a complete plug like Anton Blidh gets?

    Absolutely, but then again, some here continue to have a fascination with agitating grinders.

    I don't see Schaller here next season, and Fitzgerald will possibly take his place. There will also be Gabrielle in a couple of years, and both those guys have way more talent than Blidh.

    at least Byron Bitz popped a massive 8 goals as a Bruin to have earned his legendary status here for a brief time, Blidh hasn`t earned that yet:laugh:

    Only seen him in a few NHL games, seems like a hard working kid but I`m with you, not sure why he gets the time here he does when the B`s have 3 guys all on the 4th line this season who, IMO, bring far more than he would

    as Estlin said, Fitzy is a guy who I think might be one who breaks camp with the club next season

    I like Blidh but he is a liability the way he runs around looking for the big hit.

    He’s too reckless for my taste and until he learns to harness that, I’m ok with him staying in Providence.

    I think Czarnik and Fitzy are going to fight for an open spot.

    I guarantee every prospect is eyeing the games in China and using that as motivation this summer.

    They are going to have to prove themselves off the bat to make it on to the roster for those exhibition games.

    Don’t forget Cehlarik.

    I liked what I've seen of Cehlarik at the NHL level, but the dude can't seem to stay healthy.

    I know- I like him a lot. Of all our prospects at Providence right now, he has shown me the most in the NHL in terms of potential (possibly excepting Czarnik) but it seems like it's every other week with an injury. Hopefully it is just a weird tough patch for him and not an ongoing thing that derails his career.

    Well I am not sure he has the most potential (I'd argue for Frederick and Zboril over him in terms of potential). Cehlarik, is a good combination of potential, and NHL readiness. Other than possibly staying healthy, PC has nothing left to prove at the AHL level.

    Yeah, I should have clarified- Cehlarik out of the guys that have played NHL games that are in Providence- not necessarily top end "how good they can be" potential.

    I'm pretty indifferent on Blidh.
