Reid Boucher had 40 ES goals in 68 games, Bell would be on pace for 37 ES goals.

How far along are Pietila, Severson, and Bell? I would assume Pietila and Severson are sooner rather than later with the extended look Severson got in camp and Pietila appears looks like he's being groomed for a John Madden role from what I've heard but I know virtually nothing about Bell other than he's a converted D.

I'm happy to see Pietila putting up points lately after a real rocky start. Seemed like his SH% was abnormally low (in the 3%ish range) for most of the year. Michigan Tech is only 44th out of 59 teams in goals per game so I'm not sure how much talent he has had around him. He did benefit this weekend from playing against WCHA newcomer Alabama Huntsville so the quality of competition isn't good as triumph noted, but still nice to see the points coming for him.

Tonight he had 2 goals and 2 assists to give him 5 goals and 7 assists in his last 6 games. It seems like he's being used as a C this year and he seems to do well at faceoffs. I haven't tallied his most recent games up but he was above 60% after 25 games.

Interview with David Conte, interesting views on some players. They had Severson ranked in the top 10 before the top prospects game.

Just had a chance to listen to this, really interesting interview. The Severson comment was really interesting and so far it seems like he's been rewarding them. A couple of other things I thought were interesting:

 

Apparently Kujawinski has been battling a groin injury on and off this season. Conte's comment about Doug Gilmour thinking highly of him seems like a nice sign.

Boucher's pro success aided by his "natural instincts, natural ability." They are also "exceptionally happy" with Scarlett's pro debut as well.

Mentioned Coleman's skating needs work but otherwise seemed complimentary of his game and progress as a two way player.

In my opinion, he didn't come off too committed in terms of Johnson getting a contract offer before the deadline. Praised certain aspects of his game but implied it hasn't come together, or at least as quickly as they would have liked to have seen.

I thought it was interesting when he spoke of how in general he feels prospects are getting micromanaged, even from a young age, and that they aren't necessarily being allowed to develop naturally anymore. Sort of like kids nowadays are being put into a cookie cutter one size fits all type of way of learning the game and not being encouraged to run with their natural talents. Just a trend he sees in the hockey world from the youth levels up.

Obviously he's a ways away yet, but I'm really excited to see Santini if he continues to develop. He could be that super solid shutdown defenseman the Devils haven't had in ages (unless you count Salvador or Volchenkov, and if you do..well, we'll have to agree to disagree).

I hope he becomes more than that because that role is slowly but surely disappearing from the NHL.

I'm not so sure the role is disappearing.  I think what's disappearing are the players capable of playing that specific role.

21 Adam Larsson 6`3 200

19 Damon Severson 6`2 210

18 Steve Santini 6`2 201

 

Can we fast forward two years with an extended Cory Schneider.

Worth noting that I think Kelowna is a better team now than they were at any point during those guys' run.  Kelowna only scored 185 goals in Weber's last year there according to hockeydb - they have 246 so far this year.
