    Pretty much same boat as Kredier, (RAW physical skill sets that only played High School)...
    although Cristoval had a tad better polishing before he got to the NCAA.

    Cristoval has looked better then Kredier and probably even Step's their freshman year.

    It is impressive to see him post 8-21-29 in 36 games as a freshman. Nice size at 6'3" and 200 pounds. I think he will be with us when he feels he is ready and when the organization does as well. We have experience in this area recently with a balance of players joining us after some college Stepan, McDonagh and players who went 3-4 years like Kreider and Hagelin.

    I think he goes back for a second year at least to see if he can maintain or increase his contributions. Overall I am really excited for Nieves.

    Who knows what's gonna happen.
    But more then likely he stays next season of course, and at his current improvement pace i'd highly expect him to be playing for team USA at the WJC.
    Another year of NCAA and throw in the WJC....would be a great development year.

    My "dream" is that he comes out after his sophmore season.

    We buyout Richards
    Step's just got done with a 67pt season flanked by Nash and Hagelin
    And Miller/Kredier are tearing it up on the 2nd line.

    Nieves seems like a bigger Hagelin to me.

    Not complaining.

    Stats show Boo as way more of a playmaker.

    And video shows he's got way better a shot.

    I'd like to think of him as a more intelligent Kredier, but not quite the physical skills, (no prospects have those skills)

    Just another tremendous pick in the second round. He'll surely make it to the NHL.

    Anyone listening last summer knew I wanted him in the FIRST round...
    Ya a bit higher then what he was projected, but loved this kid pre draft.

    And honestly, he's outperforming our 1st rounder anyways.

    Yup. I remember that. I remember you saying over and over that, since we were picking low, it made sense to go a little off the board and grab this kid. Hopefully Skjei develops in to a McD-lite, with the good skating ability and positional play, but if he doesn't then no harm no foul: we got Boo in the system regardless. After hearing all this stuff about him, getting him with the 59th pick is just downright awesome. I'm really surprised he fell that far.

    But anyway, excellent scouting skills Puck Head! You definitely called this one.

    Finished with 29 points in 40 games which included 8 goals and 21 assist's and 18 penalty minutes on the season. Of his 8 goals, 3 were on the PP and 2 of them were game winning goals.

    He disappeared in the last 10 games compared to his first 30. Still a great freshman year for him

    Earlier today it was announced that Boo Nieves had made the cut and would stick with Team USA at their evaluation camp for the World Juniors.

    Team USA has three more games, Finland, Sweden and Canada, this week before wrapping up.

    After a positive first game on Sunday, Nieves didn’t have much of an impact in Team USA’s 5-2 win over Finland.

    SNY’s Nick Licalzi, who is broadcasting for Team USA, said that Nieves was basically invisible yesterday and had a “relatively quiet and lackluster game.”

    At the United States of Hockey, last night, Chris Peters said that Nieves was in and out of visibility and while he has skill and speed that would help, he hasn’t shown it consistently.

    While discussing the players who were cut and who are sticking around, Peters said that it was a good decision to keep Nieves and it will be interesting to see how he responds as the camp gets tougher. Peters said that the key for Nieves will be to bring consistency with his offensive game and show off his speed and skill.

    I'm only saying this because he's American but I'm not sold on him.

    I'm not worried. He has time and is only 19.
