    Johnny Boychuk??

    Does anybody have any insight on the P-Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk? I see he had 20 goals, 60+ points and a plus 19. Alot of people are talking about the B's needing a puck moving d-man. Seems like he has the offensive skills. Can he play D?

    Re: Johnny Boychuk??

    used to be a higher rated prospect for colorado but his age indicates his developement is slow

    Scouting Report

    Assets
    Loves to initiate contact. Owns a heavy point shot and has stay-at-home qualities that endear him to his coaches. Is a quality teammate.
    Flaws
    Is still a work in progress and must continue to refine his defensive game. Will occasionally take bad penalties that hurt his team.
    Career Potential
    No. 6 or 7 defenseman.

    It's not as if this guy is 30 years old or something.

    When was the last time they updated his profile?  And what was TT's forecast?

    Granted it is the AHL, but I don't see how a guy can put up numbers like that and not get a chance to show what he has in the NHL.

    Anybody watching this guy in Providence?  What's the deal?

    I would put him as a 4th or 5th defensemen. He's a good offensive dman, but his actual D skills are somewhat lacking. He has the tendancy to be out of position because he is aggressive.

    I would give him a shot this year on the 3rd pairing.

    He will not be with the Bruins next year.  I have heard several times he does not skate well enough to stick in the NHL.

    He is NHL-ready. He is a better skater than he is given credit for. He is solid in his own zone and has a pretty good shot.

    Re: Johnny Boychuk??

    I thought he might get the call up during the playoffs when the D started getting thin and was surprised when he did'nt. That was a tipoff to me that they did not have alot of confidence in him at the time. Maybe he will develop but the clock is ticking for him. I think he is a career minor leaguer.
    Keep in mind that Yuri Alexandrov has agreed to come over for development camp this year and this may be a guy you see in Boston/Providence next year.
    The bigger message here is that the B's are a bit thin when it comes to overall defensive depth in the organization. I have been a proponent of trading Kessel for the third pick. Take a look at Jared Cowen. 6 foot 5 inches and about 230lbs. Big and mobile defenseman. The kind of guy the B's could use.
