One year ago today...

Bruins 2010 Draft Watch was born out of a love for the NHL draft and wanting to capitalize on the buzz surrounding the potential for a high pick as a result of the Phil Kessel trade.

Well, one year later, we have a different name, newer look but it's still the same blog dedicated to keeping tabs on the top draft prospects (and other stuff of course).

I want to thank all of you for your continued support and for being followers. I invite you to continue to ask questions and as always, I'm open to suggestions on how to make the content better.

Speaking of better, 2011 is looking pretty nice-- an improvement of how it appeared a year ago. This draft has some high-end talent and better depth than a lot of us originally thought.

So, if you're not paying attention to the draft because it's only October, that's cool. I'll be here all year.

Happy Columbus Day everyone!

EDIT- And Happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian brothers and sisters- neglected to give everyone north of the border their due.

  1. Well, Seguin sure looked good on that goal on Sunday! I thought he looked very lost at various times, and might have an eaiser time breaking in on the wing than at center (he was essentially in a wing's position with Ryder covering for him at center when he got behind the D and did his best Randy Moss impression catching Ryder's high lob). That said, he is certainly more NHL-ready than Kessel was as a rookie, with greater potential as an all-around player than #81. I'm not ready to give him the nod over Kessel as a pure scorer, but with a goal like the one he scored he certainly hasn't taken himself out of the discussion. He also can fly, and in time looks like he will be the type of player who plays faster than he is.

    Seguin's debut also sort of reminded me how remarkable a rookie Patrice Bergeron was - Bergeron essentially had no rookie growing pains, and was never lost. At times overmatched (especially in the clutch & grab game), but always knowing where to be and what to do. That kind of presence as a rookie is rare, and it is no knock on Seguin to say that he's not up to Bergeron's level in that regard.
