    [QUOTE]I'd rather Bitz wasn't even in Providence. He has zero upside and could be taking ice time/development away from one of the kids who at least in theory have upside.  making Providence an AHL powerhouse is not what I care about. The AHL team's role is to develop players into NHL caliber inventory to either feed the big club or to be traded for pieces that the big club needs. If they happen to win a bunch of games that's a bonus. Bitz seem slike a great guy and team mate and I like his grit but he has no place in this organization.

    Walk, I agree completely. Wins in Providence are secondary to the development of players for the big club. Learning the system so that the transition from Providence to Boston can be seamless is far more important than any immediate results for Providence. That's another reason why I don't put too much stock in the offensive numbers put up by guys in Providence.

    So if this boards favorite prospect Hamill were at a point per game last season he wouldn't be ready for the NHL ?

    San, the point I'm making is that a guy's lack of big numbers in Prov doesn't always equal a poor NHL showing. Learning the system in Prov is bigger than personal numbers.

    Could you maybe elaborate a little more Jacob Marley ? Whitfield, Tardif, Hennessy or Arniel are better NHL 4th line players than Bitz ?

    Arniel is the only guy I like out of that group. Good two way guy with some offense in him. He sounds alot like a future Julien pet.

    Whitfield can play spot duty, sure.

    Stats don't tell the whole story, but they are useful for helping determine.
