The Punk Test: The Big Bad Bruins Run Amok

This may be the written blog I’m most proud of. It was originally posted on RealSports.ca in mid-November of 2011, but it got deleted. Then I posted it on SteveDangle.com in January of 2013 but I just recently deleted that site, too. For those who missed it and those who want to revisit it, here is "The Punk Test" once again.

Many of the players featured in our Top 20 Prospects series aren't that familiar to Leafs fans because not everyone checks out the AHL, CHL, or European games. David "the Brolldozer" Broll is one of just a few guys who made our list with actual NHL experience. 

Even though we only ranked Broll 20th to start last year, at least one our our writers explained why we should be excited about him. It's been over a year and it's still worth a read

You might note that another big fan of Broll is none other than Kyle Dubas.
