    During the interviews with the GM & Co., they stressed character, intangibles, etc. multiple times.

    The comments on Twitter from the Sens fans were pretty brutal - they can't believe the team didn't pick Zadina. That Finn that the Canadiens took at #3 really shot up the draft boards over the last couple months, so I think the fans were excited thinking they could get Zadina after all, and then to have the team not take him.... Most of the comments were along the lines of "He was right there!"

    Never mind that the Coyotes passed on Zadina as well with the next pick...

    I feel like Tkachuk is already going to be fighting a battle thanks to the fans reaction.

    Jake Wise gets picked by Chicago at #69. Gronkowski would be proud.

    He suffered a serious injury a couple of years ago, broken collarbone I think, that stunted his growth and caused his stock to fall. Some analysts had him rated as one of the top 30 players in the draft but apparently teams were wary.

    So, I was reading Bradyís draft blog and a few other articles and not one of them gave me any assurance that heíll be back playing for BU next season. Hope Iím wrong.

    I think him scoring only 8 goals is the "issue". Scouts love him but can he score enough will be the question.

    Many Ottawa fans have speculated they don't think he'll sign. Of course they all probably know as much as we do on the topic - nothing.

    Always funny listening/reading most NHL fans (especially Canadian) proclamations about NCAA players. Pretty sure 99% of them have never seen Brady play in person.

    I think what is clear is that Tkachuk wants to do everything he can to make the NHL in the fall. It seems most people other than him think that is unlikely. I don't think there is really any "decision" in play here. The Senators will let him know if they think he can make the roster (likely after their development camp), and that will determine where he plays. Obviously if they think he is ready, he will sign and hopefully for him, make the roster. If they think he could use another year of development, then I think he comes back to BU. I don't think he wants to be in London or the AHL if he can avoid it. But that is just my guess.

    I hadn't seen his name on any lists. The perceived likely 4th pick for BU was to be DeBoer. Similar to when O'Connell was drafted (last year? to the year before?) in the late rounds, when nobody was really expecting it.

    This was meant to respond to your other post about Tkachuk:
    I thought the same thing until I read Ken Campbellís piece in The Hockey News (I donít think itís available on the web). He makes it seem like itís a foregone conclusion that Tkachuk is going to the NHL. e.g. After mentioning the plan to have him assume a leadership role on Team USA next year, he writes, ďThat plan has almost certainly gone by the wayside since Tkachuk will likely be in the NHL next season.Ē

    Incoming grad transfer Max Willman, a 2014 Sabres draft pick, is in BUffalo development camp, along with Hickey.

    Three goals for Bobo in Thursday's scrimmages at Islanders' development camp, matching 3 by Wahlstrom. Cockerill also at Isles' camp.

    Question: is Bobo more effective at center or RW?

    If you want next year's home schedule, it's input in your season ticket holder account in the calendar section. Nothing significant of note previously unknown other than a 5 pm game on MLK Day against Merrimack.

    glad to see Albie reach out and mention "friends of hockey". GQ treated that as a dirty word only cared for the cabinet
