    Well, we are losing four forwards to graduation and with Olsson a constant injury threat, I think this makes sense.

    We're losing four forwards and currently have three coming in the fall without Harper.

    Re: BU Recruiting Update, Part 4

    As of now, BU projects to have 16 forwards next season assuming no early departures, dismissals, transfers nor decommitments.

    SENIORS
    * Baillargeon
    * Kelley
    * Lawrence
    * Roberto

    JUNIORS
    * Olsson
    * Phelps

    SOPHOMORES
    * Andren
    * Carpenter
    * Cloonan
    * JFK
    * Greenway

    FRESHMEN
    * Bellows
    * Harper
    * Keller
    * McDermott
    * Udahl (assuming he redshirts this season not having dressed in a game)

    And of these, realistically only 13 or 14 (Lawrence, Udahl, maybe Kelley) project to compete for anything more than replacement playing time.

    Heard from several sources that Harper for next year is likely. It will be interesting to see if he joins Omaha for its final dozen or so games, now that Avon's season is over. Not long ago, Quinn reportedly indicated the need for another impact forward for next season, so Harper would fill that need. Just a guess for next year:
    Harper-JFK-Andren
    Bellows-Keller-Greenway

    Here's another one for thought:

    Bellows-Keller-Carpenter
    Greenway-JFK-Harper

    With your bottom 6 possibly being:

    Andren-Baillargeon-Cloonan
    Phelps-Roberto/McDermott-Olsson

    Even though Carpenter has excelled since moving to center, I'd LOVE to see what he might be able to do playing alongside Keller and Bellows. I also think keeping JFK and Greenway together could enable BU to have 2 potent lines.

    You may know more than I, but isn't that a weak assessment of McDermott? Are there higher expectations for him?

    From what I've heard he's projected to be a 4-year player, potential captain material. That same source said he's a "John McCarthy +" -- comparable character/leadership with more skill than McCarthy.

    I agree with Carpenter on the top 2 lines - I think he has more upside than Andren. But I still like the Greenway-Keller-Bellows grouping.

    Also, I don't know that we want to assume Harper will jump right into a top two line slot. After all, Baillargeon was also a star prep forward, and he hasn't really developed the way we probably were hoping.

    Sounds very unlikely that JFK will be a terrier next season.

    Which would be a huge mistake on his part.

    Carpenter is much better at center than a wing.
    Baillargeon led the team in scoring as a freshman. The mono his sophomore year led to a lost season. He is still not back to where he was as a freshman,offensively.

    While Carpenter has done better at center--and Quinn has said he always intended to put him there--he's always been a finisher with an accurate shot. Led the USHL with 35 goals a year ago. Putting him on a line with creative playmaker like JFK could prove to be be very productive. A top six forward belongs on the top two lines.

    Here we go again. Where are you hearing these sounds? Why should we believe this coming from a Northeastern fan with 70 posts? Seriously, why do you post stuff like this with nothing to back it up?

    He had 27 points that freshman year (I believe). I think the "led the team" aspect inflated our expectations. Is that the lowest total since Ryan Whitney? Further back?

    The Bruins tried to get him to sign last summer, they are going to push even harder this summer. The only 2 things I have posted in about Quinn not being long for BU which I believe other people here have also said, and now this. All I am telling you is that he will be gone. You don't need to believe me, I do have this from people i the know.

    Perhaps, but I'm still of the camp that the Bruins would rather let him develop for free in their own backyard than pay him, when he isn't exactly dominating at his current level. I love his game, and he is having a solid freshman season, but he should be a 2 if not 3 year player in my book.

    The Bruins are going to push JFK hard after one year, but didn't successfully/didn't try to get Grzelcyk to sign after any of his first three years?

    I'd take 25-30 points from him next season.
