On the way back to the East Coast today and Bruins 2011 Draft Watch is going to take a bit of a hiatus and breather for a few.
The draft is in the books, and our work is largely done for this edition.
Ahead this week, we'll try and do some team-by-team analysis for all the non-Bruins folks who frequent the site. You guys are the best and I do want to try and break it down for you beyond what was already done for the B's.
Next week, will be in Wilmington for development camp, which I suspect will be crazy given the Stanley Cup win and buzz surrounding "D-Hammer" and "Koko" plus the other usual suspects of Spooner, Knight, Sauve and the rest of the youngsters who will be there. Still waiting for a roster, but get to Ristuccia early for your seat, because the place was pretty slammed last year with all the Seguinmania even after the crushing loss to Philly. Being an NHL champion who struck gold with its first two picks will bring the people out in droves as well.
Thanks for reading and give it a couple of days before we fire it up again.
As was the case last year, we'll cover the scrimmages and then close out the blog with a ranking and analysis of every Bruins prospect in the system.
In the meantime, here's a very rough pre-camp swag on the B's new prospect top-10:
1. Dougie Hamilton, D
2. Alexander Khokhlachev, C
3. Jared Knight, RW
4. Ryan Spooner, C
5. Max Sauve, LW
6. Jordan Caron, RW
7. Steve Kampfer, D
8. Jamie Arniel, LW
9. Matt Bartkowski, D
10. Ryan Button, D
