    I was thinking the exact same thing when I looked down and saw his name.

    I think the whole reason they sent Knight down was because they have a "bigger problem" in deciding what to do with Spooner.  In other years I see Spooner getting high consideration to make the team, but this year you have Seguin, Caron, Colborne and Sauve in the competition as well.  And the problem is that you can't send Spooner, Knight or Seguin to the AHL.

    With such a glut of good young players, I don't see any way around this other than to send them back to jr.

    Not surprised.  Knight needs a full, healthy season in juniors -- why make him miss early junior games when it is obvious he's going back there anyhow?  Now he can be a leader (captain?) of his junior team.

    With another season of junior under his belt and (hopefully) a WJC tournament, he should return next year ready to compete for a spot.

    no wait.  There is another way, but it's not really an option.  You waive or trade half the current roster to make room for them.  And nobody sane would do that.

    Yes, I knew he'de sent back but also thought he 'de go a little further in camp and make it hard on the coaching staff. Not sure what happened here. Instead it's Spooner giving the coaches reasons to keep him up.
    Anyway, I'm looking forward to following Knight, Jared with the London Knights and the Hunter brothersMark and of coure the " Infamous basterd" Dale LOL.

    Yup but they must have seen him at the rookie games and pratices.  He was the most impressive though at that rookie camp a few months ago.
    I expected Knight to do what Spooner is doing now.

    As much as I was rooting for Knight, and believed he would make a better showing in camp, I think this pretty much nails it. If he had been as dominant in training camp as he was before, he'd still be here. Probably a little too much for him at this point. I was hoping he'd get some more time, but I agree they must have already decided that more ice time at this level wasn't going to help. Better to get him back to his team and let him light it up and bulk up some more. It certainly was great to get a glimpse of what he's capable of, and know that he's in the system.

    Smart thinking!  Many more to follow but not Seguin.  My quickest assumption is Seguin is adjusting.  If he is a perfectionist he will need to be given time. Those types need to be adept at certain skills before they expand their play.  I know it is speculation but hey it is a perception.

    Re: Bruins Release Nine From Camp

    Its too bad knight could not crack the lineup. I had high hopes for him to make the team. He scored 35 goals in a shortneded season last year in jurniors and this year should easily reach 45 plus goals.

    He does not have oustanding skills and skating is mere average but he has guts. He will dive face first to score a goal. Pretty much we have nobody like that on our team

    But he didn't excel during camp nor in game 2  (robbed by the goalie). Do doubt overwhelmed by the speed of the nhl game.

    Spooner is a real talent. It is going to hard for the Bruins to send him back. Especially since Savard will be out for a while. We all know Seguin and Caron are going to be shoe in's to make the parent club. Maybe it might be wise to send Caron to Providence , keep spooner and when Savard and Sturm comesback, sit Thornton and cut Michael Ryder

    No, you can't "cut" Ryder and sit Thornton without paying them.

    and to add what Duinne is saying; when you sit a player that is under salary it still counts against the cap.  If you send a player down to AHL and pass waivers then you get cap relief .  So sit and cut just does not cut it.
