    What are your expectations for this guy in the long run? I know he had pretty bad year in PRO last season but could he develop into a good PK guy with some hitting and some scoring touch?

    Also, what's gonna be his role in the nera future in B-Town?

    Martin Samuelsson had a awful year in Providence last year but dont write him off yet.

    He still has Top 6 potential if he turns it around this year but most likely will be a 3rd line checker his whole career. He compares to fellow Bruin PJ Axlesson but with more offense and agression.
     
  3. This is the year for Samuelsson to show what he has.

    He is one of the biggest disappointment to me. I was very impressed by him a few years ago. He has it all.

    I was particularly surprised by the physical edge he can have when he wants. He's really solid on his skates and can check better than I thought. Not a bad player at all and perhaps needed an adjustment year.

    I was hoping he'd become a 2nd liner but now I'm not sure.

    I think Samuelsson is primarly a excellent third liner, but I doubt he'll ever get the offence to be a legitimate second liner. Yes he's fast but dosn't seems to be a natural offensive presence :dunno:

    And that isn't a bad thing. To me, I'd rather have him as a third liner because I think he would be better suited to be a PJ Axelsson type than a scorer

    Need more opinion here... Will he have full time job in BOS, either on the 3rd or 2nd line next season?

    Unless the Bruins suddenly decide to open their checkbook and sign several high priced free agents, then Samuelsson will given every oppurtunity to make the team as a top 9 forward. I personally think he will be playing on the Bruins third line the next time NHL hockey is played.
