    Even though Nazem Kadri isn't feeding him the puck anymore, Knight's drive is leading him to having a solid year overall. He's learning to create offense this year, and it's working quite well. He has second line potential, and reminds me of Steve Downie a bit. His work ethic should get him in an NHL sweater very soon.

    Mark Recchi 2.0.

    He's doing quite well this year, for the first time in a long time the Knights are an absolute cluster**** this year and Knight's production has taken a definite hit compared to where it could be if he had an actual centre to play with. He should hopefully become a 20-25 goal scorer second or third liner who brings good energy and some physical play. As for comparisons, Mark Recchi is a good one, Knight's offensive game is kind of a similar style to Ryan Smyth's IMO.

    As a Bruins fan, I would love it if he turned out anything like Recchi or Smyth. However, I think Chuck Kobasew is also an apt comparison. I would take anything in between.

    He has a drive and tenacity that somebody like Kobasew could only dream about. That's why I liken him to Recchi. He's a good skater, good shot, lots of good tools but it's his sheer determination that will make him successful.

    Here's hoping the Bruins go for the trifecta by drafting Landeskog.
    Therefore they can form a "Bumbling Burkie Line" of Knight, Seguin and Landeskog all courtesy of the Kessel trade!

    When BB said that Kessel is the short-cut to building a contender I'm sure he wasn't thinking of the Bruins!

    Like others noted Knight should be a solid 2nd or 3rd(more likely) line winger.

    While the "Bumbling Burkie Line" wouldn't be a bad nickname, the "Thank You Kessel Line" is even better, with Kessel being shortened to KSL as in Knight, Seguin and Landeskog.

    Just think about it....
    On one line there's a Knight, Whaler and a Ranger!

    Maybe next year Jared Knight will finally start playing for the name on the front of the jersey and not the one on the back!! :laugh::laugh:

    His style reminds me of Dino Ciccarelli.

    I haven't seen much of him but that's really great to hear. Loved him on the Red Wings when I was a kid!
