Hello, all- as promised…back with the second part of what we started on Monday, which was an in-depth look at the players the Boston Bruins made available to the Vegas Golden Knights (VGK) for tonight’s Expansion Draft.
In this one-hour audio post, founder Kirk Luedeke looks at some players that make sense for the B’s in the first couple of rounds. Is one of your targets on his list? Listen and find out. While this is a Bruins-centric blog, fans of other teams welcome- he just might cover some players you are interested in and want to know more about.
Post script- Only guy I missed from my New England Hockey Journal Bruins draft preview is Czech C Filip Chytil. Chytil has good height, length and is an excellent skater who plays with pace. He’s typically projected in the 40’s and beyond, but he was a late riser after a strong U18s and overcoming some injuries. He’s probably overvalued at 18, but we’ve seen teams grab dark horses before, especially in a draft like this one. Chytil is a first-round talent at least, and TSN’s Craig Button pushed him into his 1st round in his last edition. So, Chytil’s not in the audio file, but should the B’s (or your favorite team) end up with him- here you go.
