    Next year's draft

    How many picks do the B's get in the first round of the next draft? Is it just one (Toronto's)? I keep thinking they traded their own 1st rounder already.

    Anaheim is going to have a great draft... not only do they have their own first round pick, which looks like it will be a top 5er, but they also have Philly's first rounder (thanks to the Pronger trade) which is looking like it could be a top 5er as well...

    Look out for the Ducks in 3 years!

    Posted by davecarr[/QUOTE] 2 first rounders next year, 2 first rounders the year after that and also a stockpile of second rounders in the next 2 years.LaughingLaughingLaughing I have been a bruin fan since 1970 (I was 10 yrs.old when that started) and I cannot remember this many 1st and 2nd rounders in 2 years EVER.

    All this while maintaining a respectable team, THANKS PC

    Bruins have 6 picks in the top 60 in the 2010 draft
    2 1st's Boston & Toronto
    4 2nd's Boston, Tampa Bay, Toronto & Minnesota

    3 picks in the top 60 in 2011
    2 1st's Boston & Toronto
    1 2nd Boston

    In my opinion they do not draft 9 guys over the next two drafts, I hope they spin some of these picks for some help this year.

    I see what you mean, like Bergeron, Lucic, and Krejci?  I guess you haven't been reading the papers lately, but the Bruins drafted these guys and they have signed long term contracts you know.

    i would trade them all for the cup.  i'm 36 yrs old born in 73.  a fan since i could walk and talk.  the b's have never won a cup with my eyes present to witness it.  i've been patient and considering how good this team was last year and the roster going into to the season...i felt pretty optimistic.  despite the team not sitting on top of the standings, i still have hope.  this team needs some reinforcements though and not 3rd and 4th line types.  they need a legit top 6 forward.  pitt went and got two last year (kunitz and guerin) and added that to roster that already had some pop.  paille, bitz and begin have no business playing a top 6 forward role.  bring in another layer of scorers by cashing in a few of those pics.

    And Stuart & Hunwick... O wait there was that ONE guy that DIDN"T WANT TO BE HERE AND WASN'T WANTED HERE BY HIS OWN TEAM that got traded away for some GREAT draft picks that can be used in so many ways..
    I hate people who think you can just keep everyone because they like them.. losing that sally allowed us to extend Lucic, Rask & Savard, sign Krejci for a few more years, a stockpile of high draft picks.. but hey, we should have kept him at the expense of ALL of that.

    Well said, I couldn't agree more. A vast majority of championship franchises are built from within and the B's are working their way towards doing so. Hockey is not like baseball where you can just pay everyone what they want to stay, you have to evaluate which pieces of the puzzle you think are going to work best. Just as PC and the management group have done. The next two drafts will serve as a tremendous opportunity for this franchise to solidify its foundation and core of young talent.

    "In my opinion they do not draft 9 guys over the next two drafts, I hope they spin some of these picks for some help this year." Gotta agree Ocram they will not all be used. Some will be spun for a rental for sure.

    Re: Next year's draft

    TherealHomer, the problem of developing and holding onto young talent isn't unique to just the Bruins. Every team in the league is facing these hard decisions. Do you think Florida really wanted to have Jordan Leopold over Jay Boumeester? (sp?) Watch at the end of the season when Chicago dumps great young players to make room for the big 3's contracts. All these threads about Kovlachuck coming to Boston (which ain't gonna happen) are because Atlanta's in the same boat as the Bruins were with Kessel, the only difference being that Kovlachuck is an UFA rather than an RFA. Regardless, the organization drafted, developed, and is now being forced to either bankrupt its future or sell it's best player because that's the way the NHL works now. Kessel leaving is no different than what's happening all around the league. Hard decisions that frustrate fans and make possible dynasties a thing of the past.

    I want Kabanov on this team anyways...after Hall, I think he's going to turn out the best player in this draft. Kid has some unbelievable skills and fits into our needs.

    Re: Next year's draft

    Look at what's happening in Montreal.  They got Tomas Plekanec who is an UFA at the end of the season.  He's having a monster year and will ask for at least $5M per year - and some Richie Rich team like the NYRangers will give it to him!  He has not signed yet and the Habs will likely dump him for picks at the end of the year.  Sound familiar?

    Like the Bruins, the Habs have no choice.  They need the cash to sign OTHER players like Carey Price.  He's in the last year of a contract and will ask command $5M per. 

    Kessel is just the start of an ugly trend.  Chicago is next. 

    Boston is doing the right thing and building with a strong 2010 draft.  They have no choice!!  You have to blow up your team every 3 years nowadays!!

    Re: Next year's draft

    Colburn did not get invited to Canada's Junior Team. The Edmonton Journal mentioned that he's turned into a pp specialist at Denver and has to really work on his defense. Not good news for a CJ team. I watched Caron the other nite play against the Finish junior team. He looked really good...He's fast and creative around the net. He definitely looks like the real deal. Hamill has 17 points so far this seaon with the baby B's. Average at best, but then looking at the standing that reflects the type of year the baby B's are having as well.

    Re: Next year's draft

    Kirill Kabanov's awsome, but wont go top 5.  He's out with a wrist during the highest level of play this season.  And Russia wont take him because the coach is a douch.  So his chance to impress the scouts is delayed, at best.

    He's an exciting player but is that skinny frame durable enough to withstand an 82 game NHL season?  Teams will be looking at that aswell.

    All these factors, along with the Russian factor will take him out of the top 5.  Any bets?

    This is from the Wildcats website in Nov.

     Kirill Kabanov, the
     17 year old left winger of the Moncton Wildcats will undergo corrective surgery tomorrow to repair a wrist injury from late last season. Recently Kabanov aggravated the injury and was scratched from the Wildcats lineup last Friday in Halifax. Team doctors have evaluated the severity of the injury and have agreed that the best course of action for a full recovery is surgery. Recovery period for this type of injury is expected to be 10-12 weeks.

    Re: Next year's draft

    I was just looking at past drafts.  Man, did the Pens do it right (by choking for 4 yrs)
    They had :
    03 Fluery   1st pick
    04 Malkin   2nd pick
    05 Crosby  1st pick
    06 Staal     2nd pick

    And if you look at it, Ovechkin was first in 04.  Can you imagine if they threw in the towel a little bit more, in 04?

    That's why I am not a big fan of the Penguins and Detroit still amazes me.

    Get Taylor Hall and this franchise complete changes in the next 10 years. He is better than Tavares was at this time last year. The guy is awesome.

    I hope you're right if the chance comes, bluefox. But I think Fowler's gonna look pretty tempting to PC come draft time. The B's might find it hard to resist a guy who's being compared with Potvin (Dennis not Jean) as a possible replacement for Z down the road.

       I agree that Fowler will be the guy the bruins target. They will move Toronto's # 1 plus their own, to move up to #3 overall.
       Everyone on this board keeps saying this is a deep draft, but it isn't according to scouting reports I have seen. After the top 3, there is not much to get excited about.
       Also, teams won't draft a Russian in the 1st round anymore, unless they have an ironclad guarantee that he will play in North America, no matter how good he is.

    Re: Next year's draft


    I wonder if the team who has the #1 pick overall would consider a trade with the Bruins for some combination of the Bruins picks? (both Bruins firsts in 2010 or 2011 or the 2nd round picks).  Wouldn't it be worth considering if you knew the draft was going to be deep?
