Welcome to Bruins 2011 Draft Watch!

Welcome to Bruins 2011 Draft Watch and thank you for following me over to this new blog site, where I hope to raise the bar on coverage here in 2010-11.

It's another interesting year for the Bruins and their draft picks, as they have four picks in the first two rounds next June, assuming they hold onto them all (which is probably a bad assumption).

They get to go to the well one more time with Toronto to complete the Phil Kessel trade, but even the most pessimistic of fans would have to concede that the early returns of Tyler Seguin and Jared Knight look pretty good. Chances are, the Leafs aren't going to be another bottom-two team again, but if the Bruins can land somewhere inside the top-10 (with top-five being even better obviously), it will be another fun year of analysis and speculation.

So, here it is. Welcome to the new blog. Things will be a little slow as we are in the dog days of summer, but with the WJC evaluation camps and the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tourney in Piestany, Slovakia right around the corner, we'll be getting things revved up.

Be sure to become a follower of this blog if you haven't done so already, and keep the old site bookmarked, as I will leave it up as an archive should you ever wish to jump in the wayback machine.

Thanks again for all the comments and support, and I hope you enjoy reading as much I as love cranking the posts out.

We have just 321 days until the 2011 NHL Entry Draft at the XCel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota.
