Stanley Cup of Chowder 1 hour ago

The Z-load: Zboril at #15.

A look at the newest Two-Way defensemen in the Bruins' system. Position: Defense Height: 6'1" Weight: 183 lbs. League Last Year: QMJHL Age Last Year: 18 Acquired: Selected 13th overall 2015 NHL Entry Draft. Pick acquired for Milan Lucic, among other things. A smart player in all three zones, Czech-born Jakub Zboril is a player with strong positioning and a steady stride. His solid point total for a defenseman is nice, but his play in the defensive zone and his ability to get into the offensive zone and his crazy accurate shot are really something to behold when seen in the flesh. A...

Seth Griffith is lucky 13

Vote for #14 here. Position: C Height: 5’9" Weight: 192 League last year: AHL, NHL Age this year: 23 Acquired: Drafted 131st overall in the 2012 NHL entry draft Seth Griffith spent the first chunk of the year last year in his NHL debut with the Boston Bruins. He had a decent enough go of it, scoring goals in 5 of 30 games. Around January, he got sent back down to Providence (after David Pastrnak's 5th NHL game) and stayed there for the rest of the season. During his 30 games in Boston, he ended up as David Krejci's most common non- Milan Lucic 5v5 linemate of the year. This...

Meet Colin Miller, our sixth-best under-25 player or prospect

Vote for number 7 here! Position: D Height: 6'0" Weight: 181 lbs League last year: AHL Age this year: 23 Acquired: 2015 trade, for 2015 and 2016 2nd round picks Colin Miller came back in the Milan Lucic salary dump during armageddon draft weekend. For Milan Lucic, the Bruins got the 13th overall pick and Martin Jones, who was in turn traded for the Sean Kuraly and a 2016 first rounder. Altogether, that's a pretty good package, of which Colin Miller appears to be the crown jewel. He was a standout AHL defenseman last year, only outscored by Chris Wideman among AHL defensemen. That's...

Will Matt Beleskey outscore Milan Lucic next year?

More than just a pretty shooting percentage... Editor's note: John has been a long time community member, and I've invited him to jump up from fanposts to actual posts. Please welcome him! Author's Disclaimer: I'll only be talking about even strength stats here, and I've gotten all of my numbers from stats.hockeyanalysis.com. Last year, Matt Beleskey was easily a better goal scorer than Milan Lucic was. He ended the season with 18 even strength goals to Lucic's 13. How did he do it? Well the consensus seems to be that his goal totals are nothing more than the result of a flukey shooting...
