      Story sites Vesey's situation, which really doesn't apply since JFK will be a Junior this year, not a senior. Seems early to be panicking about that.

        That's true, but I feared the Vesey situation would lead to this stuff. While there had been a couple of prior incidences of 4 year players not signing with their draft teams (Blake Wheeler, Kevin Hayes etc.), no team had flipped their wig over it the way Nashville did after Vesey didn't sign.

        Now there is an epidemic of teams pressuring their college draft picks to sign ASAP for fear that if they stay until their senior years, they'll lose them. This is bad development for college hockey as a whole.

          While I understand the fear over the Vesey/Hayes situations as Bomber noted this doesn't yet apply to JFK. If they couldn't get him to sign after his junior year then they'd have lots of other issues.

            Oh Chicago was pretty pizzed off about Hayes. They whined a lot about it ... maybe only slightly less than Nashville. And Nashville definitely was flipping out about it.

            The fact that you BC fans revel in the superiority of your team in an admittedly weak league leads me to believe you will be more sorely disappointed when the end comes than we will.

              Hayes was a first round pick, so at least Chicago got compensation. Vesey didn't result in any compensation for Nashville (until Buffalo traded a 4th rounder for the exclusive rights to negotiate), so they had a bit more to complain about.

                Not sure how much he'll play in the NHL, but Maine's Blaine Byron is going the free agency route as well instead of signing with Pittsburgh.

                  Also, Chicago had much more of a roster to sustain losing Hayes than Nashville did losing Vesey. I still have trouble seeing how either situation would really petrify the Bruins that much unless they're really that inept in the front office. I'm not a Bruins fan so I wouldn't know how much of an idiot Sweeney is or isn't.

                    Re: bu off-season - #1

                    Changing the subject a bit, the DFP interview with Quinn reported that Prawdzik will return from the NAHL as planned in the fall. So where does that leave Connor Lacouvee? Does anyone doubt that, barring an injury or when some rest is needed, Oettinger is an everyday goalie. Just looking at the numbers, there is no way the roster for next year is settled.

                      is it guaranteed a team doesn't take jake early and want him to sign?

                        Not a whole lot of precedent of drafting an 18-year-old goalie and signing him immediately. Could happen I suppose, but it'd be highly unusual. He certainly wouldn't step into an NHL roster and the team likely would want him to stay in college to get practice and a significant number of games under his belt for another year or two. They'd have to have a unique roster situation where they'd have an open spot on their AHL roster for a goalie to get regular starts and practice.

                          Quinn may have tried a preemptive strike to try and keep as many guys as possible but I'd say there is literally no chance that whoever drafts Oettinger signs him after the draft.

                            What MJ team drafted jake (if any)?

                              Ricky DiPietro being an exception (look at where that got the Islanders), top college goalies tend to play 3 years from what I have seen. Oettinger is projected as either a late round 1 or more likely round 2 so he really isn't in that one and done level plus he only turns 19 in December. I see no rush to sign him.

                                I expect Oettinger, Lacouvee and Prawdzik to all be on the roster next season. Since Prawdzik would be a redshirt Sophomore next year, once Lacouvee graduates he will be #2 on the depth chart & the primary backup in his Junior & Senior years, barring anything unforseen w/ Oettinger.
