    There was a clip from right before senior night with Warren saying he was going to miss this place. So this must have been worked out a while ago. Based on what I have read about Bengtsson being a top sought after undrafted player it might be as simple as he is a better all around player than Warren. Even then I feel like most of these 5 year players use that 5th year elsehwere. It's possible Warren looked at his pro options and didn't love them. If Brown was operating under the assumption he wasn't coming back then your hands are tied. It's also quite possible he simply wants a different experience. He's not really a top pairing guy but he's a very good piece.

    Ya I think Bengtsson took the spot Warren may have been able to have. Thought he would have signed but he’ll land on his feet somewhere. Go get a masters in business somewhere. Could see him landing at Michigan State

    BCI has the story on it... but he announced it himself on instagram.

    If Pecknold's assessment is correct i would imagine Lohrei gets that contract as insurance for the playoff run.

    Let's be honest here. Trevor Kuntar does not project as an NHLer to me. Come back and have a great senior year like McBain/McLaughlin. The only thing we can't know is if there's a scholarship crunch and Brown would like to see him move on.
    For the contract stuff, I saw someone mention it on Twitter and I went and checked, it looks right on them having 49 players under contract

    as for Kuntar, I agree. He’ll need to take another big step in his development and change his game pretty significantly if he wants to be an everyday NHLer. It’s been done before but doesn’t look likely. I doubt he stays but it’d be in his best interest to do so I think anyways

    the scholarship stuff is always weird because there are so many partials and 1 and 1s, it’s really hard to know where they’re at. I’d like to see hockey go up to 22 scholarships, I think you’d see more kids stay longer and even more talent in college

    Agreed with a lot of what has been said.

    Good news on Ambrosio, and yes it really does seem like he can reach another level and just hasn't yet. You'd hope to see him put together a season like Chris Collins had as a senior (you could see it coming on his junior year more than I'd say with Ambrosio) or even something we got from Austin Cangelosi.

    Kuntar... nice greasy college player. I don't see him making much of a splash on the NHL level but some guys surprise you and maybe it's him. Could be spending a LONG time in Providence. Being on next year's team could increase his value and give him options via free agency (plus the current Bruins' 50-contract problem). Stay and get the BC degree, duh! He's a monster faceoff guy too so that's going to translate in a lot of ways for next year's team if he sticks around which he absolutely should do. A senior year at BC or a year taking a bus across the AHL? No brainer.

    I have used Michigan and Minnesota as examples but they seem to have figured out the roster construction dilemma over the last couple years. It looks to me like Pandolfo is on a similar path. BU does have a lot of seniors so we will have to see on that next year but they should be good again.
    Michigan has 12 freshmen on that roster. Incredible wealth of talent with Fantilli, McGroarty, TJ Hughes, etc. then add sophomore Luke Hughes, Samoskevich (1st round NHL pick).

    Go Eagles!
    Bruins only have one contract keft
    and I think they will use it on Lohrei. Zero chance Kuntar burns a year as he wouldn’t make that roster.

    Agree on Ambrosio, he needs to play off someone, great speed and hockey sense but not a natural creator, he could be and another year might give him that extra bit. I am very happy he is coming back. The Kuntar thing is obviously a little more complicated, thank you for clarifying. He is not going to play in the bigs this year or next and maybe the B's see him as trade bait. Selfishly hope that he comes back he will have a great year.

    Ambrosio will be a really good depth piece. It still feels like he hasn't put it all together and has another level he can reach. Would like to see his compete level be more consistent, he seems like he has these flashes of buzzing all over the ice but will disappear for periods. He'll be a good player to have who can play up and down the lineup though with his skill level

    The Kuntar situation is interesting. If he signs, he'll be the Bruins' 50th contract this year so they wouldn't be able to sign anyone else to a contract for this season. He could sign a contract to start next year but I'm not sure if he could sign that now or would have to wait. Bruins will want to sign Mason Lohrei to fill that 50th spot so I can see why Kuntar's signing hasn't happened yet if that's the hang up.

    Someone else may be able to weigh in but I believe Kuntar may be able to sign an ATO for the remainder of this season and start his entry level next year but I'm not sure

    I can recall the parity hot takes about how the BC/BU days are over in Hockey East. While both will still undoubtedly encounter down years the ceiling is still highest at BC/BU. As long as you have the right coach of course.
