Amonte is coming this season. Played in the Chowder Cup with Farrance, Crone, Tkachuk, and Crotty.

Crone had a tough first USHL season in Omaha, but once traded to Fargo, progressed quickly. Good numbers his second year and 62 last season, good for #3 in USHL. Hasn't grown much taller, but at least he's bulked up a bit. We'll see.


In fairness, his first year he was 16, a year younger than Natl dev u-17 team. Did fine
Following year as a 17 year old had 41 points, very good, last year had 62 points, 3rd in league
Could still play in league two more years

Had a very good USHL carear, including first year. One of only a couple his age that year

He was only 98 who played full year on team

So someone tweeted yesterday that Fabbro's bio on Instagram (I think) no longer lists BU. Anyone know if we should be concerned?

Whoever tweeted it is wrong, it's still there.

Two year deal with Sabres at 650K per for ERod. First is two-way, second is one-way. 30 games with Buffalo last season.

Penguins named Scott Young Director of Player Development, reuniting him with Mike Sullivan.
https://twitter.com/TerrierHockey/status/890942286040895488
Candidates to fill his spot at BU (pure speculation):
Mike Grier
Joey Perriera
Freddy Meyer
Who else?

Two names to remember in BU's search to replace Scott Young are fmr Michigan assistant Billy Powers and Toronto scout John Lilley, an alum.

Krys was injured Saturday but completed the game. Being shut down as a precaution. Hearing it's not serious.

Five of six Terriers made the US team's first cut at the WJSS. Krys was shut down due to an injury, reportedly not serious. Oettinger was sharp in 8-2 win against Canada. Harper 1G, 2A. Farrance 2A.

Cockerill has impressed, especially on forecheck and PK.

Mike Morreale‏ @mikemorrealeNHL 5h5 hours ago

Cockerill was a steal there (7th rd) Kirk, indeed

Mike Morreale‏ @mikemorrealeNHL 3h3 hours ago

To me, Oettinger is very similar to the way Martin Jones moves around the crease

Nice trifecta for Young: Penguins job, Olympic assistant and US Hockey Hall of Fame induction in December.

Slick goal and an assist for Harper in 7-5 win over Canada. Saw time on point on power play.

So now that most of the summer hockey is over, and there are less than 2 months before the first real game, a stab at roster, lines, etc. I'm not really concerned about LD/RD or C vs W, just putting them on the lines based on where I think their skill set belongs. I think I may be missing one transfer...

F
Harper-Greenway-Carpenter
Tkachuk-Bowers-Crone
Amonte-Melanson-Cloonan
Cockerill-Curry-Olsson

Phelps, Chabot, McDermott, Witkowski

D
Hickey-Krys
Fabbro-MacLeod
Farrance-Kotkansalo

Switzer, Diffley

(is Crotty coming this year or next? I've excluded thinking he is next year. If he is 2017, then maybe he bumps MacLeod after getting his feet wet)

G (this one is easy)
Oettinger
Prawdzik
Hotte

Despite the losses of Keller, JFK, and McAvoy, this team has some serious potential. The talent may be more spread out than last year. The 4th line I have above would have been a 3rd line last year. I really don't know what Amonte's talent level is, maybe he and Olsson switch places. If Cloonan struggles to score again, he could end up on the bench.

Think Olsson might be a factor if can stay healthy
Thought Crotty was coming this year. Hard to believe
7 drafted defensemen
Think 3-4 liners and extras will fight for playing time

Yes, Nik is above cloonan. He just needs to stay healthy.

I could certainly see Nik having a better year than Cloonan if he stays healthy. I was just thinking more in terms of their style. Olsson is a lot more physical, which I think is a better 4th line fit (I could see that 4th line seeing a lot more playing time than recent years). I feel like Cloonan on the 4th line isn't a good fit. Either he starts scoring and is on the 3rd line, or he is on the sidelines.

I really don't know what Amonte's talent level is, maybe he and Olsson switch places. If Cloonan struggles to score again, he could end up on the bench.

Skating five newcomers in the top nine—or an all-rookie second line--seems unlikely. Amonte is more likely to be fighting for a spot on the fourth line. A healthy Olsson can play either wing and would help make the third line more productive than last year. My guess:
Greenway- Carpenter -Harper
Tkachuk - Bowers - Curry
Crone-Melanson- Olsson
Phelps- - Cloonan -Chabot
Cockerill-Amonte –Witkowski

Believe that McDermott is playing a season of junior and may return in 2018. I can see Harper taking over Keller's role on the power play. Cockerill's speed, skill on the PK and ability to play the offwing could move him up the chart. Don't know much about Witkowski other than he was a good scorer, playing with Harper at AOF and again last year in the BCHL while playing for a weak team.

On D, does Quinn keep Hickey and Fabbro together or split them up? If they stay together, then Krys-MacLeod. Five guys competing for the last pairing.
