    I've read in the ''Journal de Montreal'' this morning that Denis Morel, one of the scout for the Montreal Canadiens, was telling that there was going to be a lot of good quebec players at the 2008 draft. Is he right?

    Because, I don't see a lot of talent eligible for next year right now. Good players i see are only :

    Yann Sauve , D
    Philippe Cornet , C
    Kevin Poulin , G
    Derek Famulare , LW
    Alexandre Neron , D
    and some others not so great.

    So is Denis Morel right?

    Well ask yourself this question: Did you ever see Mr. Morel referee an NHL game?

    How qualified do you really believe he is to still be involved in any paid hockey capacity? Let alone being a pro scout...

    if it's the quebec league then patrice cormier and kelsey tessier... are they 08 or 09 eligible? also gabe o'connor and chris doyle are a couple more names you could hear on draft day.

    I really like the Quebec players for next years draft. I see a lot of those kids often, like Champagne, Famulare, Cormier, Cornet, Neron, Tessier, Sauve, Poulin and I think it could be the best draft for Q players in a long time.

    Champagne is a big power forward with good speed.
    Famulare a smart player with great shot and good speed.
    Cormier is a great complete player with awesome talent.
    Cornet is a great offensive man with great awareness in the offensive zone.
    Kelsey Tessier is one of the most skilled young guys of the Q.
    Yann Sauve is a Mathias Ohlund prototype.
    Alexandre Neron has a great talent for a future QB in the NHL with smart plays in D.
    Kevin Poulin will be dominant this year in the league and has all it takes to be a top notch goalie.
    Nicolas Deschamps, i'll see him for the first time in 1 month at the sags training camp, but I heard he could dominate in his first year in junior, he's got awesome hands.
    I love Mathieu Tousignant too, an agressive, talented and 2 way forward.

    he does not want Cormier and Tessier there, they are not Quebec born. But your list is missing a MAJOR player in Marc Barbiero

    PLUS above someone asked abut Gab O'Connor from the Mooseheads, he is not ranked untill 2009

    Yes I know but you know I've seen Mark Baberio once and around 10 minuts so I can't really say what kind of player he is.
