[QUOTE]In Response to Re: BRUINS ORGANIZATION: SIMPLY A JOKE : LOL, another "the future is bright" lemming. How many years have you been saying that? What have the Bruins done drafting wise tells you it is going to make a significant difference?
Last time the Bruins have a top 10 pick it was some buy named Kessel and they traded him! Same for Thornton & Samsonov. If the Bruins get lucky and actually hit a pick he won't be around for long anyways.

Milan Lucic says hello.
David Krejci does too.
Oh, and so do Patrice Bergeron, Matt Hunwick, Mark Stuart, Vladimir Sobotka, Brad Marchand, Bryon Bitz. And speaking of trades, they foisted off Andrew Raycroft for Tuukka Rask.
THN's Future Watch Team Grade for the Bruins: A-
"The Bruins never get too caught up in where they draft in the first round. Their scouts typically go off the chart a bit and produce late-round gems."
As for your "how many years have you been saying that?" comment, I'd say since Chiarelli took over and pulled the Bruins up from the cellar to the top of the league.
And now they have what anyone with eyes can see is going to be a Top Five pick in the spring, and Toronto fans are ready to tar and feather Brian Burke.
Yeah, I'd say the future looks extremely bright. With the salary cap, teams aren't going to be buying their way to a Stanley Cup. It's going to take drafting and development, two things in which the Bruins excel.
