Brock Boeser | #6 | RW


Recommended Posts

I liked it till I found out he is from minnesota. The next worse thing besides the KHL factor is the Minnesota factor. Parise/ Sutter/ Rielly and more. Idk how they brainwash all of them to always go back to Minnesota

Well we got to get a spy into Minnesota and find out. Imagine brainwashing all the BC boys back.

LOL ban is a little bitter yea. How much scouting have you done Ban? like 1 maybe 2 mins of a highlight video

That's pretty much what you're upselling everyone in the sport on, is it not, kiddo?

I've watched him a lot and he has not particularly impressed. Seemed like 2nd round material at best.

He is from Minnesota and the Wild's beat writer did a feature piece on him. Very tough and powerful story.

When Brock Boeser stands on the stage inside BB&T Center in South Florida on Friday night … when he slips on the hat and jersey of the NHL team that drafts him in the first round … it’ll be affirmation of what he has accomplished through more hardship than a teenager should have to endure.

“It’ll definitely be an emotional one,” said Boeser, an 18-year-old from Burnsville.

He’ll think of his father, Duke, who not only battles daily through Parkinson’s disease but nearly died in a car accident when Brock was a high school freshman. And he’ll think about the car crash involving a circle of four close friends that rocked his community last August — an accident that killed Ty Alyea, a baseball teammate, and critically injured and altered the life of Cole Borchardt, a hockey linemate.

And he’ll think about “G-pa,” his grandfather, Bob, who died hours before Brock played a game for Waterloo of the United States Hockey League in October.

Why would that be a concern at all? He is likely a few years away so there is no problem there. We already have Demko in the NCAA so what is the concern here?

Not having our prospect being developed by our organization means we have no control or real influence on the direction he goes moving forward. If he was being developed in utica he could be pushed in a direction that might better suit his needs to make the NHL. Not to mention he possibility that he can stay in college for his 4 years and then decide to sign anywhere he wants as has been done by a number of prospect in the last few years.

Demko is a goalie so his development is his alone, much different when you're a forward or a D man.

Would you honestly rather not have him in our house sooner rather then waiting till he is 22 before being able to shape is development?
