    As of last week, the coaches were waiting to hear decisions from two players and one way or another, that was going to be it. Bowers was one, I forget the other one's name so I don't know if he committed elsewhere or hasn't decided yet.

      It was my understanding that if they did not get both players they would continue to recruit.

        The other target is RD Cameron Crotty, playing in his second season with the CCHL Brockville Braves. Was named all-rookie last season. Recently THNís Ryan Kennedy tweeted:

          Thanks Rogie. I understood that he was expected to make a decision by the end of this week. Has that changed? Or can we expect an announcement shortly?

            I'd heard a decision was expected this weekend. Crotty played for Brockville in an early season tournament and was injured and just returned recently. Apparently used the time off to visit some campuses.

            A blog reader sent along a few comments about Dylan Peterson from HockeysFuture's message board:

            Just had my first viewing of 02 Dylan Peterson...puck on a string would be an understatement.

            He's pretty clearly #1 in Ontario at this point for the 02's, but it's shaping up to be a very interesting year for forwards, as there's no shortage of big guys who also skate well, and have the skill to match.

              Wow, sounds like Peterson is projected to be very good. Hope he sticks to the NCAA route. I have to think that seeing Jost and Fabbro going in the first round will be a big boost for higher end Canadian's strongly considering this route (not that there haven't been in the past - Toews, etc, but good to have recent examples).

                not sure of the potential lines/bodies, but you have to assume greenway is gone. taking in the jfk going..... and have to guess 1/2 of bellows/keller may jump, you can't have too many bodies in the pipe.
                a legend and an out of work bum look a lot alike, daddy.

                  I think Greenway could make some NHL rosters now. I don't see anyway that he comes back.

                  As far as JFK, I feel there is at least a 50/50 shot he comes back. He is a good player, but I think he is bound for at least one full season in the AHL, and we know the Bruins are often patient with their prospects in NCAA.

                  Keller could certainly go, but I wouldn't count against him coming back for a year, especially if Bellows does, which seems more likely (in terms of readiness for NHL).

                    USHR indicated that Peterson hopes to play for the NTDP, which is a good sign for following the NCAA route. My earlier comment about his being a dual citizen is correct, however, he was born in Ontario, not Chicago.

                            Per the Fan Blog, Crone is third leading scorer in the USHL. That is welcome news. With all the other big names, it seemed he wasn't getting much notice. I was worried that his development had dropped off.

                              Is Crone not expected to be drafted? Or is he a 2018 draft eligible player?

                              ETA: He is a '98. Has to be draft eligible next summer.

                                Crone is very good and is the exact type of player BU needs more of. Natural scorer and not another, "should I stay or should I go" types
