Does Zach Hamill Make this Team?

Zach Hamill has definitely opened some eyes this preseason, showing his playmaking ability along with his scoring touch.  Hamill, drafted 8th overall back in 2007, is a future cornerstone piece for this franchise.  Hamill took some time to adjust to the AHL, but after recovering from injury, he has shown his brilliance lately.

Hamill is the next product on the line of names that includes Patrice Bergeron, and David Krejci.  But because both of those players, along with Marc Savard, are already on the roster, his chances of making the team are not as high as they would be on another Bruins team.  With Krejci out to start the season, he could make the squad.  Teammate Brad Marchand is also making a case.  Does Zach Hamill make this team?

    I like Hamill as a player but don’t really see him making this team. Bitz really has a chance this year to show what he can do. With Recchi signing again this year and Sturm coming back, it seems hard to believe that Hamill would get an actual roster spot. He might be a guy we will see called up a few times this year, like Lehtonen was last year. I see him getting there eventually, but not this year. I don’t see Hamill as a career AHL’er, he’s still young.

    Lehtonen was only called up once i think. what about sobotka?

  3. Bruins says:

    i only see hamill up when krejci is down. other than that, marchand or sobotka should be there for energy

    I dont know what Hamill has done in the off season but from what I saw in Providence he was a decent player, but not an NHL regular. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Sobotka stay up in Boston for 50 games with Hamill only getting a handful of games, but tons of ice time in Providence.
