    Hamilton to Niagra, others to AHL

    http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=641506

     

    Will have to wait to see Hamilton, but it doesn't seem like they even plan on negoitating any time soon so I guess it's the best move.

    Caron the only one expected to make the roster who's going to Providence.

     

    After seeing Hamilton play against Russia maybe it's not such a bad thing. Though that could have just been a poor week for him.

    They can always bring him back up when and if the season starts.

    Hamilton will be a huge addition to the Bruins in spite of his so called "bad playing" in last yrs WJC.

    Hamilton? I thought they couldn't bring players up from Juniors during the season, or is there an exception because of the lockout?

    One of the few things the NHL and the NHL Players Association agreed on this week was a mechanism for shipping players to the AHL in case of a lockout. Players who are subject to clearing waivers and who are waived before the Collective Bargaining Agreement expires at midnight Saturday can be assigned to the AHL and then can return without re-entry waivers if they are recalled three days before play resumes. That includes those on two-way contracts, and already there has been a flood of players assigned to the AHL.

    Most junior clubs are also wary of a lockout, as they could build a team around a star only to see him leave in mid-season if the work stoppage is resolved.Normally, a player who is sent back to his junior club must stay there the rest of the season. But the NHL reportedly reached agreement with the Canadian Hockey League, which oversees the three major junior leagues, to allow players to go to the NHL when the lockout ends.

    Attendance at junior games during the 2004-05 lockout was better than average, but not exceptional even with Sidney Crosby filling rinks with Rimouski in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

    Hamilton's play against Russia this summer nor his play this season with Niagra will effect how the Bruins view his potential ZERO. Young defenseman make mistakes and it should be expected. Orr, Park and Bourque did so there are no exceptions.

    Well said San, and if there is an NHL season, and he makes the team, he will make his share of mistakes. All part of the learning process.

    I thought Hamilton looked good against Russia this summer. He'll continue to grow up wherever he's playing, the lockout may actually be good for him.

    Hamilton looked okay, but the system wasn't a great fit for him.  He was caught up in some blown coverages, caught chasing guys way out to the perimeter leaving prime real estate vacant.  But that seemed to be the system Canada's coaches wanted to them to play - rotate, pursue, backfill, repeat.  I didn't like it.
