    Who currently playing in the QMJHL has a good chance at playing in the NHL and what type of players do you see them becoming?

    I have heard that Oilers prospect Slava Trukhno has a good chance to be a top 6 winger. He is the only QMJHL prospect who has a point in every game he has played. Apparently he needs to work on shooting a bit more. He sounds like a Hemsky kind of guy to be honest

    He is tied with Latendresse for 9th in the Q in points right now and has played three less games

    LW Trukhno, Viatcheslav PEI 18GP 10G 26A 36P 33PM +/-0

    The next highest scoring player on Trukhno's team is

    O'Brien, Greg PEI 20GP 14G 7A 21P 6PM -6

    So it doesn't sound like he has a lot to work with either.

    From a Canucks look:

    Luc Bourdon is a lock to make the NHL IMO.

    Julien Ellis and Vincent have very good chances of atleast becoming back-ups. Most likely one of them will make the dance.

    Angelo Esposito (2007) will be a scoring star in the NHL. He may be the best '89-born player in the world and could go first overall. His offensive skills are exceptional. As long as does all the little things he needs to succeed as a professional, he'll probably end up being the best player to come out of Montreal since Lecavalier in '98.

    Radulov is certainly shredding up the league, thus far. Almost 40 points in about 16 games. 18 goals.

    Guillaume Latendresse(Habs property, 2nd round 45th overall 6'2, 225 pounds) really surprised alot of people this camp, althought the hype was pretty big on HFboards, we're really hoping for him to become our Bertuzzi( hitting, blocking goaltender's view, protecting the puck behing the net and in the corner's) he's strugled since coming back in the Q even with Brassard on his team, habs management aren't scared though, they said it happends often that when a player performed well at a higher level it's hard reajusting back to a lower level, can't wait to see him playing for Canada, he would of probably made every single team in the NHL except the Habs, knowing we have a reputation of not rushing with aby prospect.....

    Yeah, Esposito's fantastic - a bit selfish at times though. Saw him play a few times with Shattuck last year. He wasn't nearly as productive as Toews but, skill wise, often looked better than Jonathan despite being a year younger. Again, didn't have the stats of Okposo or Gergen but easily had more pure skill than those guys.

    He had 6 pts in his first 2 games. After that he has been on a ppg pace...but he was a ppg player at 16...

    Latendresse SHOULD be shredding up the league like radulov. The kid almost made the NHL!!

    There have been some stories that suggest that he thinks hes too good for the league. It can be understandable when you almost make the NHL. Add to the fact that Drummondville players are dropping like flies due to injuries.

    Kristopher Letang, the Pens 3rd rounder in '05, was extremely impressive in camp and has been great in the Q so far this year.

    He could develop into a Dan Boyle-type of player.
     

  12. I also think it has to do with the fact that Latendresse's younger, less-hyped and not-yet drafted teammate (Brassard) is outscoring him in total points and in PPG.

    It may be difficult for Latendresse and Bourdon to adjust, simply because both appear to have NHL spots locked up for 2006.

    Brassard has more to play for at this stage than Latendresse. Brassard has been ranked as high as 10th and as low as late 2nd round so there is a huge swing in what people think about his game. Latendresse has no carrot dangling in front of him. Less to work for. Hes almost gaurenteed a contract.

    Brassard is out for a while though, fractured arm. He was playing with it the last 2 weeks but decided to shut it down and let it heal.
     


  14. I agree 100%. :teach:

    Greg is not a Dman.

    I have watched him here this season as well as last season, he never played D yet.

    I wouldn't bet my life on that; Zagrapan is IMO head and shoulders above Lascek in his NHL potential from what I've seen.

    i agree with that actually, but i think if lascek can improve his skating, he will show how much better he can be.

    Same thing was said about Bernier after he was drafted

    Dont look at his numbers
    How is he playing is the beetter question

    Does he look to be improving his skating, better defensive awarness

    all things Bernier improved on after he was drafted to get him where he is today
