In response to OrrEspoCash's comment:
Since 2005, the Bruins have drafted the following defensemen: Dougie Hamilton, Matt Grzyelnek, Matt Benning, Rob O'gara, Maxim Chudinov Zach Trotman, Ryan Button, Tommy Cross, Dennis Reul, Alain Goulet, Radim Ostracil, Yuri Alexandrov, Andrew Bodnarchuk, Matt Lashoff, and Jordan Sigalet. Displaying what is surely the most inept ability in the NHL in drafting defensemen, only Dougie Hamilton shows any ability beyond being a minor leaguer. Care to argue that, Dezafoolchi? Yeah, I have real faith Linus is going to be different LOL!
I think he lost a couple of Chicklets Fred--The Turk
The goal isn't for the Bruins to take a beating for the team, it's to cause the opponents to take a beating for theirs.
Orr, you are following up a very poor argument up with another very poor argument and are one step away from the ignore button, which I hardly ever use.
Your list there could apply to any NHL team. The vast majority of those guys are picks later than the first 2 rounds, which hardly ever make the NHL, on any team. Check the success rate of other team's drafting D-men since 2005, in the later rounds, for comparison -- it'll ruin your argument. Do it. I dare you.
Guys like Matt Benning (7th round) and Rob O'Gara (5th round) haven't even played a college game yet, so citing them is totally irrelvent. Only a fool thinks that and 18-year old drafted in the 7th round will play in the NHL right away...
C'mon grow up and make some big boy arguments here. You know nothing about Arnesson and neither does anyone else, except that he was the 3rd highest rated Eurpoean D-man and could be an NHL defensmen after 3-4 years of development. Par for the course at pick #60.
Don't get all excited about Subban just because you know his name. Every team passed on him yesterday, until the 4th round.
