    The Dman Philippe Garnier is 23th in best prospects of the LHJMQ for the next draft.

    I like garnier game a lot (he is one of my sleeper for the draft) and the rimouski oceanic will bid to host the 2009 memorial cup

    The team has definitly potential, but is struggling big times since last year. Even with Frolik.

    I know they're struggling but how is Frolik playing? I've seen his stats and he went through a bit of a slump it seemed, not really scoring any points for a 3 or 4 game stretch or something like that but then I just saw him put up 3 assists a couple days ago and then another goal in their last loss. How has he been looking for them?

    Gratchev ranked in the first round? Huh. He has some skill, but first round is an awful stretch given his timidity. Most scouts don't see his game translating well to the pros.

    IMO Skokan and Tanguay are the top players to watch on that team for the 2007 draft, but there are certainly four or five Oceanique that could go in the top four rounds. There'll be lots of scouting making the long trek to Rimouski this season.

    Agreed on Gratchev...Tanguay disappears when it gets rought though...

    Skokan...he plays physical, hes a good skater but he has no hands.

    I think all 3 will be drafted but id be shocked if any of them go before the 60th pick.

    2-way. His offensive game is pretty surprising considering in Midget he was more of a stay-at-home style guy.

    He has good size, he skates well, plays physical. He could be one of those 4th round picks that no ones really heard of but he turns into a great prospect.

    I figure that as well, although I had a scout tell me this morning that Tanguay is a possible first round pick. i had another scout tell me Tanguay is a second round pick "and that's it."

    Agreed that Tanguay's not an aggressive player, but his skating skills have him slated for the top two rounds at this point.

    Thats the weird thing...he isnt a good skater. Ive seen multiple scouting publications cite his "blazing speed". The guy isnt a very fast skater in my opinion. He is more of a PM Bouchard type of skater. He gets there but he's not blazing.

    Thanks sounds good. Do you think Maxim Noreau will get drafted this summer? I don't know if I'll get to see Victo play any games this year, but thought he might make an interesting 7th round pick perhaps.

    I agree. I'm a bit baffled by those descriptions of Tanguay.

    Could the bloodlines of Maxime Tanguay would help him get drafted higher in this draft ?

    Noreau is a good Q player, but im not sure he has enough potential to be drafted. But he should get lots of camp offers in the event he isnt drafted.
