  1. Based on last year’s camp, No!

    But he seems to be showing some improvement… and we will see how that transfers to next year’s camp.

  2. If Bolland can show he is a 2C (which I think is the hope with the Morrison Trade… I think Morrison fits our team as a 3C) , Then Kruger will be the 3C next year, and there will be an opening at 4C. I think Pirri can take the 4C role, and McNeil can get some seasoning in the AHL. Utimately when Bolly’s contract is up in 3 years, then you would like to think Pirri or McNeil would be ready for the 2C role.

  3. Good for Mcneil but yea, he’s at least a couple years away imo.

    Anyone notice former Chicago pick Akim Aliu got traded again? So much for that potential.
