    It's been so long since we had a proper training camp including preseason games I forgot how lioopy some people can get after seeing a player just once in a meaningless game.



    Ha, welcome to the bdc bruins board. Everyone's a scout.

    holy crap.

    He really does have sweet hands.

    His goal (second of the game) v. Red Wings tonight was a thing of beauty.

    Highlight reel stuff, I'm not kidding.

    Dirty or pretty a goal is a goal.

    He's reached his NHL quota, already.

    That's it for him, unless he ships out to Providence.

    At this point he's better than Soderberg.

    And that's not good.

    Sweethands could end up forcing situations.  He could play right wing, and Smith, Fraser, Spooner and Caron are all able to play the left, as is Soderberg.  Fraser looks way too mentally slow, however.

    The Bruins top two lines look great.  If Sweetie can give 10-15 goals on the third line with solid all-around play, he's a good find and valuable.

    Yup he's a Julien type player, does what he's asked to do.  At this point of that whole pack, besides he scored (doesn't mean much in these scrimmages) he's shown he wants the spot more.   He's a poor mans Paille Laughing

    Here is the best video clip I could find of his goal, sorry, but if you study it close enough you can see what a thing of beauty it was.

    Providence is going to be a fun team to watch this year and competition for third line slots is heating up.  Good all around.

    "Nice stats, Davey. A semi-goon and a defenseman have more stats than this proven NHL scorer.

    What a joke.

    Trade him to the Panthers. Tallon will make a deal."--NAS

    NAS and goodnewsbears are about as smart as Dumberuschi when it comes to noticing talent. Johnson is better than most any of our other 3rd line options. Nice job NAS and goodnewsbears. Are you ready for your second crow sandwich? This one's on the house ; - )

     

    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.

    I mentioned it in another thread after his 2 goals against mtl he could be the biggest surprise, and seeing that nice goal on the highlights even makes me beleive this guy is NHL caliber and being a RW only helps the Bs.

    Now i know alot of you dazzled the posts about him being nhl caliber after spending so many years in the ahl. but we all know and have seen stranger things happen in the nhl.

    Im hoping he makes the team  i like his style.

    Wally, for you I hope it comes to pass.

     

    But, that goal was a complete accident- a stroke of luck. Johnson was on his off-wing after coming off the bench, on a power play, with no-one paying attention to him, and he got a fortuitous rebound. The rest was easy.

    Don, what goal are you talking about? Not the one posted above obviously, as there wasn't a rebound involved.

    You are right Red. I had a brain cramp.

    It was a lazy Pavel Datsyuk. He wouldn't be that lazy when the games count.

    Re: Nick Johnson--sweet hands and proven NHL scoring

    Johnson has suprised most of us, but, he's still got more competition, and Claude has some major decisions to make. The kelly/Soderberg/Smith line played very well, so what does Claude decide ? Caron is not really standing out for the third line, but would be a major uograde over Thornton on the 4th line[ bigger, faster, better defensively] Fraser looks like he needs some time in Providence; the comment that Bergeron's line looked rusty was a kind thought. They need to work , and work hard. Is Campbell really playing as well as he was ? Will Campbell be able to cover for thornton or does he need a better skilled right wing ? either Caron or Johnson or Fraser could fill the bill.
