    I would be happy if they roll the dice with Kabanov, but it would be hard to pull the trigger on him with McFarland, Petrovic, and Merrill still on the board.

    I would take the Head case too, at some point talent wins games & he is a talent although it would be nice to keep stocking the cupboard with solid mentally stable prospects

    Dont forget guys all 3 mock drafts by the NHL had John Merill in the 1st round ..one even had him with the BRUINS at no.15....I think its a real deal at 32 .....

    Stanley Cup to the BRUINS in 2011-2012-2013

    I still wish that PC would have dealt #32 and #45 to move into top 20 pick and been able to have a shot at Watson, Forbort, or Tarasenko

    In Response to Re: Available at #32? Kabanov, McFarland, Petrovic, Merill, Johns, Pitlick and Toffoli!!!!: I think Merrill and Kabanov would be just as good, if  not better than Forbort and Tarasenko.  B's can have one at 32, maybe PC could swing a few deal to move up from 45, and maybe trade Edm for their 31.  I would if I was him. Better to stock up now, cause next year's draft will not be as strong.

    Kabanov is worth the risk at #32. The potential benefit far outweigh the risk. If he doesn't pan out it's not like PC took a chance on another Rob Cimetta or Wes Walz. Kabanov has mad skills and no one could possibly question PC's decision to take a player who, pre-season, was considered a top 5 pick. I don't think he'll still be available at #45. He is only 17 and will mature. If he's there I grab him without a doubt. Roll the dice on this kid and I believe it will pay off. 

    If not Kabanov, then I prefer Merill. He's big, strong and makes good decisions with and without the puck, plays the body well. Hockey sense is something you can't teach and he's got a ton of it. The downside is he's not an impact player offensively and he still needs to develop. Which he will do at Michigan.

    I'd also be OK with Petrovic.

    I say go for the problem cases Jon Merril or Kirill Kabanov, with Merrill being the priority between the two.

    Merrill is an offensive defenseman, but suspended for 8 games by USA Hockey for off-ice disciplinary reasons. A lot of scouts say Jonathan Merrill’s interviews at the NHL Central Scouting Combine were bad (so says TSN's Bob McKenzie) . . . . But B's need an offensive D in their system. McKenzie has him ranked at #22 and ISS at #11.

    In Response to Re: Available at #32? Kabanov, McFarland, Petrovic, Merill, Johns, Pitlick and Toffoli!!!!: In that case, let's hope PC would trade for the 31, and pick both back to back.  Then again, I have a feeling Edm will pick Merrill.

    Kabanov is the best player available at 32.  But, I like the Bruins to take a defensemen.  To many negative factors surrounding Kabanov.

    I can't believe Edmonton passed on Seguin..  Baffled.  Who's going to center all those wingers??  Tyler clearly looked disappointed when Hall went first.  I felt bad for him. :(  He really should have gone to Edmonton.  Just made to much sense.

    Anyway, i'm glad we got him.  He was my favorite and I think he's the better prospect.  When is his jersey available at the NHL store?

    Pretty sure Bruins take Merrill. Bruins won't think about Kabanov until the 45th pick. The guy just carries too much baggage not relating to hockey. He is immature first and foremost

    If edmonton takes Merrill look for them to try to take Pickard, Faulk or Toffoli (who did well with Seguin).

    PC likes to gamble imo vs taking the safe pick everyone thinks will do well later

    well the bruins have shown that they will take on a head case if the talent is there because kessel slid to 5 in his draft for having issue's in charecter. So i think they take kabanov at 32 and i think its a good chance. Not many drafts where you know your have a legitimate super star potential still available at 32.

    The way this draft is going, I think Kabanov will be there at 45.  Take Merill and hope for Kabanov later.  Then hire a great therapist to fix their 2 cent heads.

    Assuming Kabanov gets past Edmonton, which I think he will...

    Boston is looking for offense. Kabanov is 17, 6' 3" 180#, skates like the wind, goes to the dirty areas, likes to be physical, and puts points on the board. He was a pre-season top 5 pick until the fiasco. Personally, I don't give 2 cents about his off-ice issues. It's not like he killed anyone. Most everyone made dumb decisions at 17 but we learned from them. Kabanov sounds like he's learned as well and is wanting to make his career over here. You simply don't pass up the opportunity to pick a player with Kabanov's skills with the #32 pick in the draft! PC said prior to the draft he wanted to attempt to move up and get another pick in the top 10. Here is that other top 10 pick! It just happens to fall into your lap at #32! Yzerman picked Connolly without batting an eyelash even though he had a major hip injury. That is more risky to me than taking Kabanov. If I'm PC, I take Kabanov at #32 every day and twice on Sunday! The chance to add Kabanov along with Seguin with the 2 picks we got from Toronto is too much to pass up.
