This looks like a really good thing especially when your shot has been compared to ovie and laine

And two of your prospects are on the list

This is what I am praying for... in reality some of us were nervous about giving him that much money for that long. I am praying it becomes the worst contract in history.

And no ring to show for it would be even better.

Let's hope. I could see giving him a year in BPT to adjust to the pro game. I don't see any reason to rush him into the line up. Unless of course, he just lights it up in camp and gives them no reason to send him down. Or is he going to college first?

Playing in NCAA i believe is less games for him as opposed to Bridgeport or juniors.

going into that draft I was hoping for 1 of 5 guys to fall to us at our picks. We got 2 of them... truly amazing.

He is actually eligible to go to the AHL though, so you're not too far off-base. I doubt he will, but if he has a strong camp, the Isles think he is ready to handle the pro game, and he's willing to blow off BC...it's not impossible.

If he stays more then 2 years at BC then he is never coming here

I normally don't read the blogs. Just the comments for people blasting him about being wrong. Several of the comments were about JT so I glanced through and saw that little gem.

Yeah, like I said, I wrote it up and then remembered he was slated to go to BC. We'll see how he does. Hopefully he's another stud. And what about Dobson? College bound? Juniors? AHL? Could he make the roster out of camp?

Hope he can make the team as Toews can give the Isles another dman that can move the puck.

In theory, yes. But d-men take longer to develop, so I would think it's very unlikely. He's coming out of the Q, so I think he's too young for the AHL, but Chiefs is the last word on whether he's allowed in Bridgeport this season.

Correctamundo. It's either NHL or QMJHL for Dobson for the next two seasons. Wahlstrom can go to AHL because he was drafted out of the USNTDP.

It was more of a question of is he good enough to make it out of camp. I haven't seen very much of him (video) to have any idea.

Usually these 18-year olds need to beef up to play against men, and I seem to recall that Dobson is typical in that regard. Again, I think it's a long shot to see him in the NHL this season.
