    Kind of an underwhelming group compared to years past, no? The guys with the most talent are Studnicka, Steen, and Lauko. Axel Andersson is interesting, as is Urho on defense, but neither moves the needle much. I think the two I am most interested are the goalies: Keyser and Swayman. Both seem like real talents, but the rest of the group seems very C+-ish.

    They’ve graduated a bunch of guys. McAvoy, Bjork, Donato, Frederic, Heinen, JFK, Zboril, Senyshyn, etc. are all past the dev camp stage now.

    I also wouldn’t sleep on Vaakanainen. I think he is their top prospect and has top 4 potential on D. I don’t think it is out of the realm of possibility that he helps the big club in some capacity this season.

    Studnicka and UV are the most interesting to me.

    They seem really high on Studnicka but he can't play in the AHL, so it's either NHL or back to the OHL. It'll be interesting if the team factors that into the decision when comparing him to JFK and Frederic, who have AHL flexibility. If Studnicka is ready for the NHL, another year in the OHL is probably not great for his development.

    Ideally UV starts the season in the AHL. Given their starting LHD, there are going to be plenty of NHL games up for grabs for him/Zboril/Lauzon. I think long term he's an ideal partner for McAvoy

    Guess I fast forwarded a year in the title...any way to edit that?

    Anyways, Fluto has an interesting piece in the Athletic that hits on some of the Bruins process behind identifying and drafting the late round picks. The piece used Pavel Shen (7th rounder this year) and Jack Becker (7th founder in 2015) as some examples. I found it to be a worthwhile read.

    Interested to see if any goalie steps up, I'd love to see some competition there.

    Divver said Studnicka was the best player in camp, and UV was a bit disappointing:

    Anyone who's ready to contribute in the NHL should be dominating these camps. It's a little disappointing UV is not, but I'm still very high on him long-term.
