    For any Q fans here, do you think goaltender Pier-Olivier Pelletier has pro potential? He was fifth in the league with a GAA of 2.97 and sixth with a .901 save percentage.

    it's a bit of an interesting situation IMO. drummondville is a team that is notorious for choking down the stretch and in the playoffs, and alot of pressure was put on pelletier to help them out of the funk. then he pretty much got written off as a prospect when he had the injury last year, and another one early this season. everyone just kind of dropped everything and said "that's it, he's done". meanwhile, with the pressure taken off of him, he's rather quietly been a top 5 goalie in the Q this year. he's also having a great playoff to date, and surprise... drummondville is still playing hockey in the second round of the playoffs.

    he's got a good work ethic, which you can tell by the way he's come back after the two injuries, and he has the ability to steal games. that's all a goalie needs to have pro potential. he needs more development time, but he's not the bust that some people have already pegged him as. i think there's a good chance he comes back to the Q as an overager. if not, probably the ECHL. phoenix already has leneveu and tordjman in san antonio too so he'll have to pay his dues.
