    Does someone have a problem with Hamilton?

    If you do, let me know and I'll arrange a get-together with you and Dougie so you can sort it all out.

    I'll be at the Ice Wine Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake this weekend, I'll see what Mama & Papa Hamilton have to say.

     




     

    Wheats, just let him know I've got an eye on him.

    Look what happened to Camara's career once the word got out!




    Just joking around, Badhab.

    I might run into his parents this weekend at the Ice Wine Festival, they are big wine enthusiasts, and pass the word along.

    I'm not worried about Dougie. He'll be more than fine.

    I have listened for years and years what Don Cherry has stated  " Ya can't rush a rookie, especially a defenceman"...Now there is a lot of stuff coming out of Grapes, but this one I believe to be true. All though I can't remember who, but I'm thinking I've heard other hockey people make this same statement...

    I've not watched Hamilton play junior hockey. Only this last WJH series. And from what I saw, I'll repeat again what I've posted. He's not ready for NHL, but don't let him go back to juniors but let him play in the AHL...As Grapes would say "you'll ruin the poor kid"....( same goes for goalies)....I've heard them mentioned as well....

    and I never thought I'd say this, but even the anouncers last night were talking about sending Hamilton back to jr during or after his 6 game limit.

     




    That would be interesting. I think it was just assumed by many that Hamilton would walk in and take a top 4 spot. If he is sent back to juniors I am not sure who moves up. McQuaid is a bottom pairing guy and just coming off a major injury to boot. Johnson? Bartkowsi? Warsofsky? Hmm.....

     

     



    I've been chatting about this recently.  We need a solid dman pickup.  Someone who can log some key minutes.  McQ is not a top 4. Neither is AF. Boychuk is borderline.  Chara seidz are studs.  After them it's a crap shoot for minutes.  

     

    I like the redden idea.  He played with chara.  Would come cheap and will do everything to show the world why he was a world class player.  

     




    I have been rather cold to the Redden idea since Freidman mentioned it because, well, its Redden....a guy who has been sucking even in the AHL. That said, he may well be a decent temporary option, provided he comes cheap as you say. We should have suspected something was up with that report, obviously PC is starting to weigh his options.

     

     



    If this is true, why are there reportedly many teams interested in him with Friedman's rumour ? Your opinion of how he's been playing might be a bit off compared to what NHL people think.

    P.S. In the rumour it was suggested Redden has been playing well and should be in the NHL.

     

     




    Three teams do not constitute "many." He is pursued for the same reason the Corvo's and Commodore's of the world still find employment....teams are desperate to find warm bodies to plug holes in their D and hope to catch lightning in a bottle.

     

     



    Ummm................. I lstened to Friedman's interview and those were three stated off the top of his head . He didn't name them all as it was a question directed at him in mid sentence of another thought which he continued on with. 

    Many !


     

     




    So we ar basing this all on an offhand comment made by a reporter who was just musing from the top of his head while answering a completely different question......solid.

     



    Yes we are. He talks to NHL personnel. Should we be basing the rumour with what your thoughts are on Redden and your following of the Connecticut Whale instead ?

    Actually JM, my buddy who scouts the Eastern teams told me last year that the Rangers were very pleased with how Redden was playing in the minors and that he was clearly just priced out of a position with the big club. They apparently really liked the way he helped out the younger players and couldn't say enough about how much he acted like a pro with his attitude, etc. I'd love to see Redden in Boston for a low price. Like Shupe pointed out, everyone counted Souray out too.

     



    In the "off hand comments" made, Friedman said the same thing but did not mention any specific team making the comments. 

    He was an NHL quality player whose bloated contract created the situation of him being in the minors.

    Fair enough then Dez. As long as he gets Scott Hannan money ($1mill) and not Travis Zajac money ($1 zilllion)....:)

     

     



    You read my mind JM because 1 mill is the amount I was thinking.

     



    This was also brought up in the interview with Friedman. He was asked if teams could get Redden dirt cheap. His answer was that considering there are " MANY " teams involved the price could be elevated to the $2-3M range if Redden chose to go for the highest money.

    It was the worst game I've seen him play, including the jr championship when they played the U.S.

    I thought Hamilton looked better, actually good and NHL ready in last year's preseason games.

    And I think a couple players from that AHL lineup have earned some NHL spots for the first few games until a couple of roster guys get it together.



    Because of the sample size ?

    Your dramatic, roller coaster emotions and opinions are mind boggling. They can get a bit extreme at times. LOL

    Hey, don't get me wrong, I am very high on this kid.

    But he was just horrendous last night.

    Again - what happened?

     



    Absolutely false. Either your expectations are way too high or you really don't know what you're talking about. Actually, I now suspect it's a combination of the two.

     

     



    horrendous ???   no comment , I'm with you Dez.

    Well, you might have something there.  Check the SC predictions thread.  I have Hamilton picked for the Calder.

    Blame the wild swings starting with Joe Thornton.  I was so thrilled when he and Samsonov were drafted.  And that season I grew to hate Thornton.  And then the next one was Kessel, again another that I grew to hate.  

    Then the long bitter fight over the Kessel trade.

    And I really regret not having made my sentiments about those guys known earlier.

    I felt emotionally ripped off by both of those guys.  Now I don't want to be late to turn on them and be the last kid on the block to hate them.

    Do you still have time to change it ? I haven't even thought about who I'd pick but Hamilton wouldn't be at the top of my list. He's still too green.

    A question for you guys.  

    You guys say drafting and evaluating talent is a bit of a crap shoot, an inexact science.  

    And I agree with that.

    You're willing to forgive the Bruins scouting for drafting a guy who can't skate (Reul).

    Obviously I'm not a pro scout - so how come I'm held more accountable for my likes & dislikes & picks?  Why should I be held to a higher standard than them?

    So far I've been totally wrong on one guy, Camara.

    I've published my alternate picks & evaluations in the prospects thread, but I'll put them in here again.

    2010 1 2 Tyler Seguin C *LOVED* the pick, 

    2010 2 32 Jared Knight RW Did not like this pick, would have taken Tyler Toffoli

    2010 2 45 Ryan Spooner C Did not like this pick, would have taken John McFarland

    2011 1 9 Dougie Hamilton D *LOVED* the pick, hard worker in camp

    2011 2 40 Alexander Khokhlachez LW agree with this pick, hard worker in camp

    2011 3 81 Anthony Camara LW didn't like the pick, did not impress me in camp, would have taken Joshua Leivo

    2011 4 121 Brian Ferlin RW agree with this pick, raw talent from FLA

    2011 5 151 Rob O'Gara D didn't like the pick, would have taken Darren Kramer from WHL Spokane Chiefs

    2011 6 181 Lars Volden G hated this pick, was horrible at camp,  would have taken Mitchell Theoret from the ice dogs

    2012 1 24 Malcolm Subban G *LOVED* this pick

    2012 3 85 Matthew Grzelcyk D Hate this pick (size), would have taken Josh Anderson from the London Knights

    2012 5 131 Seth Griffith F Hate this pick (age, size), would have taken Connor Brown from the Erie Otters

    2012 5 145 Cody Payne F Agree with this pick

    2012 6 175 Matthew Benning F Hate this pick (nepotism) would have taken Colin Smith from Kamloops Blazers

    In response to Bookboy007's comment:

    What is reasonable to expect from him?

    I find Scotty Bowman's old line about every rookie in the lineup costing you x number of games (I can't remember what the number way) is generally accurate.  High-value rookies will help you win, but they will also, because they are rookies, make bonehead plays that cost you games.  There's no way around it, and you hope that your team is significantly more talented with that rookie in the lineup than the vet who might have replaced him.  I was thinking about this on Sunday when Atlanta took out the Seahawks.  Russell Wilson made a rookie mistake at the end of the first half that cost the Hawks a field goal attempt.  The Seahawks ultimately lost the game by less than a field goal.  You can look at that one moment and say, yes, there are all sorts of other things that might have gone differently if other players had been better, but that's a play where a typical rookie mistake is easy to isolate for its damage to Wilson's chances of winning.

    These will happen to Hamilton.  He'll miss a coverage, pull a Wideman trying to get back on a two on one, make a terrible pass that puts the puck on Crosby's stick in the slot.  It's going to happen mid-way through the third in a tied game, result in a goal and a spot in the doghouse, and cost the Bruins a game.  Be prepared for it because there's nothing you can do about it.  He's a rookie.

    I think his overall impact on the Bruins will be more significant for the pressure it puts on the opposing D - he can make better long passes than most of the Bruin D, and, if he isn't scared into submission by Julien, he has the instinct and the stride to appear in the rush unexpectedly.  Just the need to account for what he can do will open up space, and that will make a difference even if it isn't immediately obvious that it's Hamilton that is making it happen.

     




    All I know is that he is an Ice Dog, and this fine in my books. Just having an junior a team back in my home town is great news. Already some names are being heard in the NHL that are ex Ice Dogs. The city of St. Catharines is going to start building a new arena for the Dogs, our junior b team is the best team in southern ontario. It is about time that st. catharines is back on the map for being a hockey town, along with being known as a lacrosse and rowing regatta city. Back in the days St. Catharines Tee Pee's develop black hawk players that eventually went on help win the SC. Another popular bruin that played for the St. Catharines was Al Secord and also home boy Gerry Cheevers.

    Like I said before. You haven't been right on anyone ( except Seguin and my shut-in-......oops.....anyone would have picked this one with Hall gone ). They are still developing with the outcome to be determined at a later date. 

    OHL and AHL stats are not the determining factor which seems to be your reasoning.

    P.S. you are being held accountable because this a discussion board where you are blowing your own horn. 

    If by chance you may be right, put it down as a fluke. The method of dart board drafting is not prevalent among NHL teams.

    OK.  So any draft picks that I agree with and/or make it are either no brainers or a fluke.

    Otherwise I'm outright wrong.

     

    How am I blowing my own horn?

     

    My biggest gripe about Bruins drafting is their picks that are losers like Cross, Reul and Volden.  From seeing them, from stats from any way you look at it they were wasted draft picks.

    Benning and Grzelcyk are on the edge.

    Looks like I have to update my spreadsheet again with picks I didn't like, hated, really hated and really really really hated.

    Bottom line.  I'd like to see the Bruins draft *better* than they do.  At least - one NHLer out of every draft.

    Cross is in his first year even attempting to play pro hockey. I didn't see a thing wrong with the way he performed on Tuesday so who can guess why anyone would already call him a loser. Regarding Reul, get over it already. The guy still earns a pay cheque as a hockey player which is indicative of someone that can actually skate and he was only drafted 130 overall. What exactly is it you're expecting from 5th rounders? He's 6'4-214 so obviously PC took a flyer on him hoping his game would develop. Maybe he just wanted him to do this.

    Anyone notice how Dez & Chowda always gang up on me over this?  They oughtta fight their own battles.  And no one ever calls third man in.  Talk about a rigged nhloa (giving a nod to null in whatever hole he lives in)

    What about the guys who they pick and who I liked at camp?

    Are you guys saying you love every pick the Bruins make and would have picked exactly the same guys?

    Come on now, give a BadHab abreak.



    Be lucky it's only two.  I'm gang raped in here.  Don't take it personal.  Stick to your thoughts.  We can't all agree.

    Yah.  A good rap session with other victims makes me feel a lot better, kind of empowering.  One day I'll be able to leave the shelter.

    I cut myself to ease the pain.

    You need to develop some better coping skills.  I've found that choking myself until my vision blacks out and my arms go sparky and numb is a much better solution as it leaves no marks.  But sometimes when I do that I get visions of Denis Reul, his face beet red at center ice trying to get to the other  end while using one edge and the pain comes flooding back.  And no amount of bleach I've into my eyeballs have been able to erase that image.
